So glad I tried Green Hills location

I was a huge fan of Jay Schaeffers Green Hills Inn. Best food I ever ate. After he retired, the food wasn't the same anymore. I heard that the owner/manager from Dans restaurant in Reading then acquired this place from the owners who bought it from Jay Schaeffer. I ate here twice in the last... read more

As one of the last standing fine dining experiences left in Berks, Dan's is as solid as they get with great twists on French and a terrific wine list. Service is top shelf but unpretentious and unobtrusive. If you want a foodie experience in this neck of the woods, you wont find better.

We were just there to celebrate a special occasion. From the ease and flexibility of the reservation accommodation to our meal, 5 stars and nothing less. The meal was simply superb, from the cocktails, caesar salad, soup, and entrees. The desserts were so incredible; there is nothing better. We are going back very soon!

We choose Dans based upon the other reviews and we were not disappointed at all. This is by far one of the best fine dining spots in all of Reading. From the hostess to the owner coming to our table everyone goes above and beyond to take care of you. We with a group of 5 and everyone was totally... More

This is an excellent fine dining restaurant along route 10 in Flying Hills. They have done an excellent job updating the building and now have a very beautiful "park like" outside seating. The food is always excellent, the service is always excellent. Nice to have a great fine dining restaurant where people appreciate the atmosphere and where dining is a... More

Our first time at Dan's Green Hills was excellent! We had a disappointing meal at their downtown Reading location several years ago, which is the reason we waited so long to try Green Hills. My salmon and my friends lamb were tasty and well presented. The sweet potato/apple soup so delicious. Desserts too good!

Under current management the Inn is one of the few options for anything in that area that comes even close to fine dining. The venue, once past the fuel station next, is quite nice with a pleasant interior. The server was attentive and professional. Our only issue with decorum was that an owner swooped in to remove plates with out... More

We had seen very good reviews for Dan's, and went there hoping for the best. On arrival, we were a little dubious, as it is located next to a petrol station right off the main Interstate highway, but it was in an old Victorian style house, and looked interesting, so we gave it a shot. What a fortuitous decision! It... More

Appetizers, entrees and desserts are delicious. Such a fantastic menu and too many delicious choices to choose from. It was a beautiful evening so we were able to enjoy our dinner outside on the patio. Waitsatff and service were excellent.
