Good food and open late.

We arrived late to Strasburg and the lady at the front desk first suggested millers but the closed at 8 so she sent us here. It has a really nice atmosphere and was very busy. We had children with us so i was worried at first about something called a tavern but they were fine there. We had ate a... read more

After reading the reviews, I guess my expectations were too high. Bright spots: the Spicy Mexican Martini was fantastic ! As was the Blue Cheese Chips appetizer. My Prime Rib sandwich was just okay and my companion's ribs had a great sauce, but were a bit dry. There are so many great restaurants in Lancaster, that I probably won't rush... More

The ambiance is rustic and the service is friendly and efficient. The food is good, but not great. My wife had the crab chowder soup followed by shephards pie; I had prime rib with mashed potatoes and green beans. For dessert, my wife had peanut butter pie and coffee All were tasty but the prime rib was a little tough.... More

We arrived in Lancaster County later in the evening so that meant many of the restaurants where we usually dine were closed. We've been visiting this area for years, but had never eaten here. What a plesant surprise this place was, especially after a hectic day and a 4.5 hour drive. We enjoyed a delicious meal and cocktails in a... More

We had 22 family members for lunch after a funeral in Paradise. We were given a private room and server (Cara) who took great care of us. She did not rush us in the least-which we greatly appreciated, as some of us had not been together in many years. The drinks were tasty-loved the Old Fashions! Everyone enjoyed their meals-prime...

Husband and I went for a light dinner on a Tuesday. He had a crab cake burger and I had a chicken sandwich on pretzel roll. The food was average - room temperature coleslaw. Wide selections of specialty beers. We both had one. Bill was $39. Service was excellent.
