This was not the positive experience I was expecting. The food was mediocre and overpriced for the amount. The young lady staffing the counter seemed quite irritated we were there and that we took more than the time she thought sufficient to review the menu. It was our first time there and we were unfamiliar, and we also let anyone... More

I took my Mother-in-law to Four Reasons for lunch yesterday. We fell in love. The staff was wonderful very friendly. Lunch was very good. The Ruben sandwich we had was delicious. I also had the Cheesy Tomato soup. Yummy. We had to take goodies back home with us. I really liked the Cranberry White Chocolate cookie. Prices were very reasonable.... More

I've eaten here several times and for a downtown Lancaster spot it's pretty good. I wouldn't say outstanding but definitely a must. Their Ruben Soup is fantastic. I know it sounds weird but it is one of their best items on the menu. A must try! Nice atmosphere and great for a conversation over lunch. (one of my pet peeves... More

Four Reasons is usually our go to place for lunch in downtown Lancaster. Great bakery and delivery with lots of choices including gourmet coffee. Desserts are too good! 😊

Whether you are there for an hour luncheon meeting with friends or only 45 minute lunch break, you can get a tasty sandwich with chips, or soup and sandwich and an assortment of beverages. The deserts are delicious - home made pie or cake. Popular downtown Deli and reasonably priced.

I had no idea all the coffee cake and other baked goodies were so tasty! I have eaten lunch a few times, but never had the baked goods. Oh my, how delicious! I bought four types of coffee cake to take somewhere, but could not resist having a piece before I delivered it! The sandwiches and salads are fresh and... More

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you tried them. Last week a customer just asked me if we were know for our coffee cakes, I responded "not that I know of" and she said "You should be!". More

Excellent Sandwiches, and sides. Good atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Right on main street close to various interesting places (General William T. Sherman's house being one of them).

We had lunch here this past week and I was very impressed with the friendly people and good food. The decor is very attractive, very roomy and open. I had a fantastic Reuben and my wife had a very good roast beef. The pasta salad was good but a pretty small serving for the price. Overall a place we will... More

Thank you for you review. Glad you enjoyed your Reuben. Sorry your portion of pasta was small, we have a standard scoop, I wonder if you didn't get a full scoop. Hope to see you again soon. Therese More
