“Candy for Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We had the pleasure of doing brunch last Sunday at the Washington House in Sellersville, PA. The brunch is prix fix @ $20 per person and consists of coffee, tea, rolls, pastries, and what ever you want, If it's on the menu you can probably get it for brunch. The food was great, the service was attentive, and the atmosphere is quaint. I would go back in a heart beat.

Now for the disclaimer. If you have a sweet tooth, you must go for one of the pancake or waffle dishes. If these things don't satisfy you, I don't know what will. Even if it doesn't, when you are through, you can have one of the deserts which is also included.

“Decent food, relaxed atmosphere... a little too relaxed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

A friend and I went for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The restaurant was empty except for one other table of customers. We were seated right away directly behind the only other customers in the entire restaurant. Once those customers left, staff took up residence at the same table to eat their lunch and discuss various subjects. I think it would have been more proper to seat us a couple of tables apart. I don't enjoy having my conversation listened to or overhearing other conversations when in an empty restaurant.

The server was very nice and polite. We ordered and received our appetizers and sandwiches quickly. We weren't rushed between courses. I liked the appetizers better than the sandwiches. I had the German Spaetzle (sp?)

Also, the lamp shades were completely covered in cobwebs, but the rest of the restaurant looked clean.

“A very nice, relaxing restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Six of us meet here for drinks and dinner before the show. The restaurant is an old, historical building in a historic area of our country's beginnings. The bar area is dressed in dark woods and has a very relaxing atmosphere. Great place to meet and wait for your table. The menu changes seasonally and we not been disappointed yet with any of our choices. My salad had a bit too much dressing for my taste and it should have been served on the side. For dessert, one couple had the bread pudding and raved about it. We and another couple had the Opera Cake. We expected something different from what was served and were a little disappointed with our choices. The staff has always been very friendly and efficient and know their jobs. We would recommend dining here whether going to the theater or just in the area.

“Good service, GREAT food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

As a local I tend to stay away from places close to home and branch out. However, the Washington House is an exception. Aside from the location you cant help but love the history that surrounds this building. I have dined here over 20 times and the menu and staff keep me coming back.

“dinner before a concert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Always perfect for dinner before we go to the theatre. The staff always makes every effort to serve us quickly if they know we are attending a theatre performance.
