I can't possibly put into words how fantastic this restaurant is! The bar is large and you can eat at the bar if you'd like. The restaurant is on the small side so make a reservation. The food is tremendous! The hamburgers are the best I've ever had, the specials are always magnificent, feel free to modify a dish to... More

We came here once years ago for brunch and it was delicious. So since we were in the area we decided to come for dinner. We were so disappointed. The salad dressing was good, but that's the best I can say. Both our meals, a chicken schnitzel and almond crusted pork were dry and bland. Very little flavor. The mashed... More

Great place, friendly folks, good food. Fun for a date and fairly kid friendly for restaurant-savvy kids. Make a reservation, try burger night. Worth the trip.

We love the small, neighborhood feel, the cozy dining room and bar, the friendly service and the wonderful food! Frank is an inspired chef, outdone only by his wife, Diannah, and her marvelous creations. One of the hidden gems of Berks County!

What a great place that seems to be a diamond in the rough. (no offense to the area, it's just in a random spot.) You walk in and the atmosphere is candlelit and romantic. There were a few other couple's celebrating their anniversary as well. Our server was very nice. The food was ah-mazing. A salad is a salad, but... More

We eat at Frank & Diannah's at at least once a week, usually for the potluck on Wednesdays. They serve comfort food with a bit of an upscale twist.They have burger night on Thursdays with some very interesting combinations. When they serve the salt baked Prime Rib on Fridays or Saturdays we generally come right back. Frank runs the front... More

I had a French friend visiting for about 10 days. Her schedule was pretty full, but we made time to have dinner on one of her last nights at the Arbor Inn. This is my favorite restaurant in the area and it has never disappointed. Frank, of course, gave my friend the warm welcome he gives to all his guests.... More

Just got back from the Amish/Adamstown area. I love using trip advisor and once again it has not let us down. We found Frank & Dinnah's and plugged it into the gps. We arrived at a very cozy and inviting restaurant. Immediately we were greeted by a very sincere and relaxed gentleman, which we later found out was Frank. What... More

We had a really great date night at the Arbor Inn. Cozy, comfortable and really good food. They offer a full bar with a small but nice craft beer selection. You're definitely treated as a person here. Owners are friendly and truly care about taking care of customers. I will obviously go back and highly recommend to others.

This truly is the best restaurant in Berks. The service was great, the chef checked on us several times to ensure everything was to our liking.. Our food was amazing. Everyone in our party ordered something different but all were extremely satisfied with their menu choice. We will definitely be dining there again in the near future!!!
