My wife and I shared a wonderful dining experience at Checkers, celebrating our 39 anniversary. We both enjoyed perfectly mixed cocktails before dining on scallops and blackened mahi. Both were served superbly cooked and well plated. The service was spot on, but not overbearing. They also served us our crem brulee with a special anniversary greeting. All in all, a... More

Enjoyed a dinner out last Sunday night. We were seated immediately and our waitress quickly stopped by for a drink order. The duck tacos are a must. We loved the veal short ribs and "the best tuna I've ever eaten". The mousse dessert finished off a wonderful dining experience. The best of Lancaster...

Eight of us went for dinner to celebrate birthdays of two of the group. The menu was varied and interesting. They had two entree sections: specials and others. I wanted to order the Arctic char, but since it came with rissoto, I needed to substitute a green vegetable for the rice since I cannot eat rice. I was told (as... More

We went here for lunch on a Saturday. We were scheduled for a big dinner that evening so we didn't want a huge lunch. This fit the bill, as we made a full meal out of the appetizer side of the menu. Both the Calamari and the Duck Tacos can easily constitute a full meal. And the Onion Soup and... More

My wife and I selected this restaurant to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. I selected this place because of the review on Trip Advisor. They were spot on. The food was very good and the ambiance was good. My wife and I enjoyed our food. The waiter surprised us with some ice cream and "Happy 15th Anniversary" in milk chocolate... More

My wife and I went to Checkers 10/1/2016. I had to try the coffee-cured petite filet. My wife had the eggplant appetizer. Both dishes were very good. The filet was tasty and tender, and not an expensive meal at $24. I do have to say, though, that it wasn't strongly coffee-flavored, which may or may not suit you (I had... More

The food at Checkers is wonderful. Fine combinations. We had a bunch of appetizers and small plates because we wanted to try everything on the menu. You can't go wrong. It also had wonderful cocktails and a good wine list. If you are a foodie you will enjoy Checkers.

My wife and I went to Checkers for dinner, had the itch for something special! As always Checkers delivered, I just love their Coffee Cured Filet Mignon, and I don't even drink Coffee! What a great combination of flavors. The food, atmosphere, service, and don't forget dessert are always exceptional. If you enjoy chocolate, and who doesn't...you must try the... More
