In this new covid era- we felt completely comfortable. Our server Kate was “masked” and friendly and attentive: the outside tables were spaced well more than 6 ft from each other. The back patio had background music and a nice ambiance. Food was delicious would...love to returnMore

Elizabeth's never disappoints! We are local and have been going since they opened in 1997. Always delicious food. We love the atmosphere in the restaurant, but during Covid it's been our "takeout" for Saturday night dinner. Ron and the rest of the staff are always...helpful and friendly. Liz is a wonderful chef and gracious owner. I'm thrilled that there are more visitors and Bucknell families to the area recently to enjoy a meal at Elizabeth's. Treat yourself to a great dinner and wear a mask!More

We had a 7:30 reservation. We were seated at about 8:05. After seated, we were told 3 menu items were out. Fine. We order. After ordering they came back and said now they were out of 1 item we ordered. OK. When our cocktails were...brought to the table, the server dropped the entire glass of wine on my legs. Shorts were drenched. No major apology, maybe an "oops, let me get you a towel." Shockingly when the bill came, nothing comped. That being said. The food was excellent. The chef deserves a 5 star, everything else a 1 star.More

The food is good, not great. The ingredients are very good and fresh. Dishes are a little weird. But the service overall is really suspect. Serving warm white and rose wines is really low class. We had a order glasses of ice to make the...wine drinkable. It’s seems there is no understanding of how an entire meal should come together as as experience.

We had a reservation for outside dining at 7pm. Our schedule was off and we never ate lunch so we stopped by at 5pm to see if they would seat us. And the answer was YES!! The manager was so friendly and provided us with...the suggestion to hike Rickett’s Glen. If you are visiting Lewisburg, I’d highly recommend. Oh, back to the review if Elizabeth’s. The sangria was delicious and so refreshing. I had the Salmon on the Asian salad. It was yummy. My husband has the Grilled Salmon with pea cakes. And the fries!!!! The blend of potatoes with salt and cheese was perfect. At 5pm the patio (aka converted parking lot) was very hot. We recommend this spot.More

We enjoyed take-out dining from Elizabeth’s Bistro in Lewisburg, PA last weekend, and everything was simply perfect, from appetizers to desserts. We started with tasty Brick Fired Pizza and delicious Quiche with Roasted Mushrooms. The salads were garden fresh. Our three complementary entrees were simply...outstanding—Crab cakes, Cavatelli Pasta, and Italian Fish Stew. Fresh-baked bread, homemade apple crisp, and chocolate nut tarts topped-off the meal. The staff was extremely attentive to each diner’s preferences and needs. Elizabeth's just re-opened for in-house dining, as well as take-out. This is the best restaurant in Central Pennsylvania and one of the top dining experiences on the East Coast.More

What a wonderful experience I had at Elizabeth’s today. I know things must be hard with everything that’s going on right now but I appreciate the lengths that Elizabeth’s has gone through to keep customers safe and comfortable.

A remarkable hidden gem in the beautiful small town of Lewisburg. I live in NYC and I come back home just to eat here, because it's that good! Every dish is bursting with taste and the presentation is always outstanding. It's the only place I've...gotten takeout during COVID, because it's consistently good.

The wine bar area is first come. This weekend September 27th and 28th it will be a standing bar only, as it's Bucknell Family Weekend and we take the bar stools away, so there is no happy hour or small plates this weekend

We have an upstairs dining room that holds 23 people, but that is for private parties and used for regular dining on busy weekends, so no we do not have a small room for 4-6 guests. We can sit you in the middle dining room... More
