I had only ever been to General Warren for banquets. The dinner menu is very pricey, and appears to be a "special occasion" spot. However, recently, I have enjoyed a couple of fine lunches here. Both the historic bar and the patio offer comfortable casual service, with reasonable prices for drinks and sandwiches. The outdoor patio is surrounded by greenery,... More

My wife and I had an anniversary dinner at the General Warren. This was my second visit to the restaurant and my wife's first visit. The beauty of the building and the property is second to none. We chose to dine on the Terrace where one is surrounded by well kept greenery and flowers. Despite the July temperatures, the evening... More

...but my recent visit was such a disappointment and not at all what I've experienced in the past. The ambiance outside was delightful as always, but the food and the service were off. Our waitperson took time to explain that the menu had been revamped. As a recent reviewer noted, prices have increased , however my dinner plate was half-empty... More

General Warren Inne has enjoyed a good reputation for a long time. However, like all too many good restaurants lately, they have reduced portion sizes & increased prices. The last time I was there everything was so average, portions were too small & we left saying we won't b going back again.

Pleasant evening, with polite and efficient service. Food was good if not great. Decor was nicely done, in the style of a country inn (which it is). Bar afterwards not as good - looks good, but bartender messed up basic drinks.

The General Warren Inne is a special place for us and we make it a point to visit the restaurant on special occasions. We have never stayed at the Inne overnight but plan to do so on our next visit which will be our anniversary.

If you are looking for a beautiful restaurant in a lush suburban location for a summer lunch , this is your best bet. Food is very good. Prices are fair. Waitstaff is exceptional and the surroundings are superb, both inside and out. Charles Quinn of Chadds Ford Pa.

Recently we attended my Sister’s & Husband’s 50th Wedding Anniversary at the General Warren Inne. They had an open bar down stairs in a lovely garden setting and dinner was served upstairs in a charming private room overlooking the garden. Our dinners were delicious even though our steaks were just warm when served. The biggest hit of the meal was... More

Nice change in pace from regular restaurant styles found in suburbia. Nice place with history and a solid menu. Likely to please a wide variety of restaurant goers. Seems to have different dining areas, and I assume, different ambiances. Does not feel as old and dark as other old historic Inns I have dined at. This is a much better... More

We have not been here for our "annual dinner" for two years but returned this year. It was just as we remembered, fabulous! We were a group of 12 and everyone's dinner was fantastic.
