Lauren was our server and did a good job of taking our order. The food was fresh and warm when served. This is a good non-fast food place to stop for a change in choices.

This is the 2nd time we ate there and both were fabulous! Extremely good food and service. Chelsea was very attentive and on her toes. Everything was home made, including the salad dressing that was great with my chicken tenders! I requested a Long Island Tea and he made it exactly as I asked him to. Definitely will be back...

Upon reading other reviews of the Brass Lantern we decided to give it a try and it was perfect. Our waiter was attentive and very pleasant, the food beyond amazing I had cod it was fresh and tender w/ a touch of lemon butter, mashed red potatoes, fresh green beans, crisp salad and then a spur of the moment decision...

We have eaten at the Brass Lantern for lunch & dinner and every time the service has been great! We have personally found, that if you treat the staff at any restaurant with kindness - it is always returned. I really believe everyone should have a waiter or waitress job, so you can truly understand just how hard their job... More

The Hampton Inn across the street recommended this place to us and it was one of the best Italian meals ever. We had Chicken Parmesan and it was an excellent choice. The chicken was an extremely large portion and cooked just right on a bed of spaghetti with some vegetables along with a salad. And we received a complimentary 10%... More

We came from across the street for dinner while stopped for the evening. What a pleasant surprise! This is a very upscale place at fairly reasonable prices. French Onion Soup was great. My Prime Rib was cooked to perfection and well flavored. My wife got the Chicken Cordon Bleu, a hard to find item which was again cooked to perfection.... More

Very nice restaurant; however, needed a little seasoning help. Pork chop a restaurant favorite, but they were a little dry and tough.

I wish TA's scale was 1-10. We'd give BL an 8 or 9. Atmosphere was casual formal. Servers presented well and were polite and courteous. Selection was nice, varied and different. Food was very good and prices were reasonable. Save room for homemade desserts!

This was a nice enough place. The food was very good, not awesome, perhaps a wee bit overpriced for what you got. I had the impression it is very much a steak-ish place - my companion's dinner was (I suspect) a better deal than my salmon was (although it was tasty, no doubt). We had a little confusion about what... More

Lunch was so good, and the after talking to the chef decided to go back and celebrate my B-D dinner with them this coming Saturday. A great selection of wines, which can be purchased in wine store as one exits. Chestnut Hill Winery has a tasting bar and a very unusual array of gifts. Great Place!
