Perfect mix of price and excellent food

Everything starts with the decor and large old fashion wood bar, But the real treat is the food which is reasonably priced and fantastic. The cream of crab soup, home baked bread, and my favorite Penne Rustica. I have never had a bad meal at this place

For the last 4 years we have had our Farm Employees Christmas Party at Great American Saloon. The banquet room is well decorated and spacious. Sometimes their is another party but the room is so large that is not a problem. We usually have 35-40 people attend. We prefer our employees order from the menu rather than a buffet or... More

Great American Saloon is a neighborhood eating establishment. A large bar and large dining area. Food type is all American, comes out hot and prepared to my expectations. Wait staff can be sometimes a bet slow. Could be because of Cooking personal or how busy they are at the time. Been here on slow nights and on Busy nights. So... More

Went with a group of us, and with a reservation, they got us seated right away. We ordered a wide variety of dishes, everything from a salmon salad to prime rib. Everyone enjoyed the food that they had ordered. It was all well prepared, and tasted wonderful. The service was very good, they were attentive to refilling beverages, etc.... Good... More

Unique decor, pleasant staff and very good food. They also have a large room for a banquet, reception or even a class reunion.

Exceptionally large portions at a reasonable price. The Saloon is a favorite restaurant to celebrate many occasions for family and friends. Portions are huge; ask for your box when you order. Prices are moderate but considering there are two meals on every plate it is a bargain!

Our family went to celebrate our granddaughters graduation from York College. There were 14 of us, and since we had made reservations, we were seated immediately. Waiter was efficient, team of wait staff delivers beverages and food to ensure timeliness and hotness of food. My husband had the grilled BLT wedge salad ($9.49) - absolutely HUGE and he couldn't finish... More

I have lived in the area for almost 20 years and finally stumbled on this fine restaurant. The decor does take some getting use to, but not for long. The service we had was first rate. The waitress knew the menu well and all the little side idiosyncratic that went along with it. Everything we ordered was freshly made and... More

The onion rings were the best I ever had. I got the Spinach Salmon Salad and it was very good. My husband and son loved the burgers, they said the bread made it better than others. The waitress was very nice and made sure we had what we needed. The only negative thing I can say is the table greet... More
