I am an avid dart player, I have played at bars and pubs throughout the world and the U.S. This is my favorite dart pub worldwide. In Lancaster.... who would've thought? I have been coming here for over 20 yrs, sometimes annually, sometimes with 5 yrs between visits. The food is excellent, a great beer selection, great friendly staff. Even... More

Great custom cocktails and British pub ambience. But Yikes! While the food was exquisite,tasty and priced right, the service was slow slow slow. Our nacho appetizers were in the broiler/ oven way longer than need be. Entrees came finally and in stages. Second round of drinks was eventually offered long after we finished eating. I was thinking that during Restaurant... More

My friends and I were looking for a new place to have wings on Mondays since its football season, so we decided to give Quips a try. Don't let the outside fool you, this place probably has some of the best wings in the area. I ordered a dozen BBQ wings and they were drowned in sauce which was delicious.... More

Great crew, great wing special on Monday nights. A little drab looking from the outside, but don't let that fool you. A very happy find in Lancaster.

We love our local pub! Visiting in summer means fewer crowds and quicker service. The wait staff are friendly, the beer selection is huge and the food is delicious. Styled after a British pub, it is dark with lots of wood and a huge bar as the centerpiece. It's not at all fancy and the outside is nothing special. They... More

Went to this bar a couple of nights ago and although drinks were good value for money the blonde barmaid who served us was so rude we left after 1 drink. We were shocked at her rudeness!

From the outside this looks like a place a nice girl wouldn't go near. However, once inside and seated, you can tell it's a local pub with lots of regulars. Just like an English pub, this is a great place to meet friends, shoot some darts and eat a good meal. The prices are very reasonable and the offerings are... More

If you're in the mood for authentic British pub food, you'll love Quips. The place is small, but the beer list is full of British Ales and the menu is loaded with reasonably priced pub fare. The real dart boards are one of my favorite features. I love a round of cricket while waiting on the food.

We were a pretty large group of kids/adults. Our waitress (1 waitress for about 30 people) was phenomenal! She split our checks with no complaints. Our food came out hot and quick. She was very personable and truly the reason we would return. The food was excellent and ranged from "normal fare" to English specialities. I had the Ploughmans Lunch... More

Quips has the best wings in Lancaster. All the flavors are lovely and the british style pub fare is hard to come by elsewhere. Great selection of whiskeys and beers. Absolutely worth the trip. Cozy atmosphere and definitely make reservations after 5. BUT.... DO NOT GO if you have someone in your group under 21....unless you plan to bring your... More
