very formal, excellent food, excellent service ,,, was there for a birthday dinner and i'd go back any old time as long as someone else pays the bill ... that is because i'm cheap ... the place is really worth it!

A group of four of us dined at the Inn on Saturday, August 23rd and we each ordered the summer salad, the salad ingredients were fresh and you could taste the infused flavors. The gentleman ordered Veal T-Bone steak and were happy with the portion size. My friend ordered the Pan seared halibut and was happy the fish was cooked... More

If you're a traditional meat & potatoes kind of person, I'd rate this 4 stars (nothing exciting or interesting), but 3 stars for foodies. You know who you are. I went on a Saturday evening for my father-in-law's birthday. He lives nearby and has a very simple palette. This was perfect for him, as the filet (at $49) was to... More

Several reviews match our experience. We've been going to the Inn for nearly forty years and are distressed to witness it's impending demise under the part owner who has been mismanaging the Inn for the past five or so years. Food, ambiance and service are continually degrading. Much of the great old staff has abandoned Bob and gone on to... More

Excellent experience tonight at the Inn Keepers Kitchen at Dillworth Inn. It was one of those $75.00 wine/dinner pairings. Usually $65. Sounds a bit steep, but the four course meal consisted of a generous portion of Salmon over some type of vegetable(some sort of grass that I cant remember and didnt eat and wouldnt anywhere). I dont eat salmon, but... More

I had been sitting on a gift card for the Inn for quite a while and I finally decided to go out for our anniversary; I knew they had relaxed their dress code, but I didn't realize that it thrown completely out the window. I convinced my husband to wear a jacket and tie and when we arrived in the... More

My son and I had a very nice meal here. The food was generously portioned but was overpriced. Ambiance was very formal/traditional in an old, renovated colonial house with very dim lighting (mostly candles).

Tucked away outside the hustle and bustle of downtown West Chester, this charming restaurant is one of my favorites. The historic farmhouse style and delicious food make this a very special place. I recently attended an event at the Inn Keepers Kitchen (across the street and owned by the Inn) and the food was amazing, service great! I highly recommend... More

The swordfish was generally moist and had an interesting flavor. The couscous topped with a few small tomatoes was tasteless and dry. The plate seemed empty; small but thick piece of swordfish and a small mold of couscous. The mushroom soup was flavorful. The beet and goat cheese salad was uninteresting. OK, it was beets so how interesting can it... More

We have been going to the Dilworthtown Inn for 22 years; we were married there it has been a very special place for us. No longer. We have not been as happy with it over the last several years but our sentimentality kept us returning. The food has been very dated and quite frankly the place has been trading on... More
