Very dissatisfied. No where near the quality as in the past. Brought special guests. Was embarrassed. Won't take that chance again

Not sure where to go for dinner after the American Muscle Car Show; Bruce (innkeeper and artist from the Artists Inn B&B) had several suggestions. Once I decided, Bruce called the restaurant and made reservations for us; who knew there would be a crowd of Mustang enthusiasts at the Black Horse in Denver, PA? The irony then caught me by...

4 guys after a day of golf. Did not know if I needed a reservation. When I tried to call the call went directly into voice mail. When I got to the restaurant I told the manager of the phone issue and she told me that they do this when they are busy. The restaurant was not that busy. The... More

Pleasant service, friendly people, and most of all really good huge gourmet burgers that will not allow you to go away hungry. Good drinks as well!

This restaurant is a nice change of pace in this podunk town! The food is enjoyable and the ambiance is usually nice and quiet! We went for Mother's Day and the live entertainment had to be moved from outside to inside. It was way too loud and volume should have been adjusted. Otherwise, it was great.

Sooo I walked into this restaurant this evening and asked for a table for 11. With the impending storm (never happened by the way) the locals were not really out so they were able to accommodate us with a smile. We said we would be loud, very loud and they told us to just enjoy and have fun. They weren't... More

I had the special for the day: Lobster and crab stuffed cobia...that was the star of the show and very good. Just a short trip from my hotel and I thought I would give it a try. Prices are a bit higher that what I've found in the area...but the food is good. You would have to decide if it's... More

Our first time trying the food here. It was outstanding. I had the Fresh Trout dish, which included large pieces of fresh lobster. Soooo good. Food is carefully prepared and beautifully presented. The staff was very friendly.

Very Good Food. Always stop at least once for dinner when I am in the Adamstown area. Happy Hour is nice, you can get a nice selection of drink and appetizers if you want to eat dinner later in the evening.

We dined here for the first time on the patio last weekend and enjoyed everything. The service was great as well. The appetizers were awesome (crab dip, tempura asparagus) as well as our meals. We will dine there again for sure.
