“Never anticipated this! Definitely worth the drive if you aren't local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

My wife and I went last evening for a friend's birthday, and to be honest, I had zero expectations. An inn in Oley, with a martini bar that served food...hmmmm?? How surprised we were! We ate in the restaurant area of the martini bar. Overall, the food was excellent! My filet was a quality cut that was cooked perfectly, and my wife's crab cakes were seriously some of the best we have ever had (Maryland included!) - no to little filling, huge pieces of crab...excellent! The sides were excellent as well (lima beans, baked potato, salads, etc.) The martinis are all made with care and creativity with fresh ingredients. Ohhh, and the peanut butter dessert (can't remember what it was called) tastes exactly like a peanut butter Tasty Cake - loved it! After dinner, we transitioned into the martini bar lounge area, where there was a small band playing. Music was great, ambiance was chill and relaxed, service across the board was very attentive and accommodating. Net net, having gone in very skeptical, I left wanting to go back (and we drove 50 miles to get there!). The only recommendation I have is to get rid of the paper napkins and plastic table cloths - the food and drinks served more than warrant it! Thanks for a great night!

Thanks very much for taking the time to write about your experience here! We enjoy the place and love to hear when others do too. You can find the upcoming live music and the current Features Menu on our web site as well as our Facebook page. Reservations are suggested for dining as well as in the lounge for the music, as we fill up much of the time.

“Wow dinner was great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

We found this restaurant on trip advisor wanting to try somewhere different. What a great find!!
Wife had filet and I had flat iron steak both were cooked perfectly and tasted great. It was a Monday night so not crowded and service was very good. Service was good and food was excellent!
It's out of the way a little out in Oley but worth trying. We have been looking for a comfortable place that's not a chain and we found it
I would say absolutely try the food here!!

“Get the Steak Salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

You won't be sorry - SO good. Fried onions & jalapeños, tender steak. Service was a little slow, but it was mid afternoon on a Friday, and we weren't really in a rush. Good food, good prices!

Thanks for the review! We'll be adding more help on Friday afternoons, now that it's getting busier at that time.

“always delish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

The chef is outstanding - fresh and creative. Adore the outstanding vegetarian options. Plus the bar is staffed by magicians who create exceptional cocktails. I don't even like cocktails but always order one at the Bridge Inn.

Thanks Helen! The vegetarian dishes have become a big hit and Jane (our vegetarian chef) loves the feedback and we're glad she's getting the accolades for her talent!
