We have been at the Joseph Ambler Inn in the past for Dinner. This time we had lunch in the bar area. The beer selection was great. We waited somewhat for our lunch, but it was well worth it. Excellent Service as always.

This was my first time ever going to JAI. Was surprised at how large it was. We were served buffet style, everything that I tried was terrific. Typically buffets are mediocre at best so this was a pleasant surprise. Myself and a co-worker are gluten free so we called during the day to ask for gluten free options, the chef... More

We met here because it was a central meeting place but we were thrilled! The only thing better than our food was the service. The room was cozy and we weren't rushed either. Definitely going back

Finally a female management member with no name tag or distinguishing attire, conducting another conversation with another patron ? saw we were confused and coolly informed us that given the time, we could sit in the Pub. It was... More

Recently celebrated my birthday with my honey and we sat at the bar and had a fabulous meal. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was phenomenal. The portion was good. Everything is ala carte. We started with a cheese plate that was very good and shared a rather large Caesar salad. The bar filled up and we later... More

The chicken parmisean from the bar menu was very tasty and good value. Steak was very nice, however a little expensive. Food is very good overall although a little limited on the gluten free side

People often by-pass the Joseph Ambler Inn because they feel that its a bit pricey, but please don't! The restaurant offers an alternate mid-range menu that has great selections and items that are perfect for the kids. The atmosphere is lovely and its a nice place to go with just your spouse. We go here regularly for a date night... More
