We have not been in Dan's since it moved to the Green Hills location. It was a GOOD MOVE! The food continues to be the best experience in the Reading area. We sat indoors overlooking the beautiful patio. We should have chosen to dine outside! As evening approached the trees were lit up from below offering a wonder romantic aura... More

I have been had many meals at Dan's, both at their current location and before they moved, in Reading. I believe Dan's at Green Hills is the best restaurant in Berks County, by far. Dan's offers high-end New York or Philadelphia quality in the relaxed atmosphere of a quaint old roadside inn. The prices reflect that, but they consistently deliver... More

My wife and I stopped for the first time this past Tuesday evening. Since it was such a nice evening we decided to sit on the patio. This was a great choice as the patio is very cozy and beautiful. The server was very knowledgeable and catered to our needs with precision and speed. My wife had the escargot and... More

When Dans' was located in downtown Reading I patronized the restaurant since the original two Dans were proprietors. I was always well pleased with my experiences. I was disappointed to see the restaurant leave town but understood why change was necessary. Tonight, I tried the Green Hills location for the first time. i should not have waited so long. I'm...

We had dinner here on Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were seated in the Garden Room and had a nice view of the outdoor garden and seating area. I had New York strip, my husband had lamb, and our guest had salmon. We cleaned our plates. Kathy, our server, has been there many years and was quick and... More

We had a great dining experience. Our Lobster and Scallop Mac and Cheese appetizer was wonderful! We both got their specials: Veal chop (a bit expensive, but delicious) and Halibut (could have been a little more moist, but was still very tasty). We ended the night with dark chocolate bread pudding... Yum! Overall, the food was very good, but a... More

Thank you so much for the review. We're glad you enjoyed your meal. Sounds like you ordered the specials which tend to be a little more pricy than our regular menu items. We hope our prices won't deter you from visiting us again soon. We appreciate your business. More

We found Dan's by accident, looking for a fine dining experience in or nearby Reading, and we were very pleasantly surprised by Dan's. Their reviews over the years have been mixed, so I gave them a shot. What a gorgeous old building!! They have a diverse menu, and everything's prepared to perfection -- we enjoyed the duck ravioli appetizer very... More

Starting with Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup that was out of this world, next Lobster and Shrimp Mac and Cheese that was the best that I have ever had, to the Arugula & Poached Pear Salad.

A weeknight dinner, party of eight, on the new patio was simply amazing. I highly recommend Dan's restaurant, even the chef came out to meet with us. We had the sweet potato soup ( perfect), the duck and the filet ( outstanding), and the cherry dessert with homemade ice-cream and almond cookies (wow). Dan's has something special here, I hope...
