Chose the one of the best reviewed (effectively 2nd) restaurant in Ephrata and it was not a bad move. The restaurant is in an unprepossessing modern block also housing the local cinema but it is all art deco after that and 95% of the restaurant is on the 2nd floor - there is a single enclosed table in the entry lobby. The food is fine dining/grill with some odd ball combinations - surf and turf with pork loin and scallops as well as with filet m. and crab cakes (really?) and a wild game sampler along with the customary standalone crab cakes - this is nearly MD - and steaks. So good for residents but probably not a destination. The Maître d' was entertaining and the food was well produced - a few minor issues, the bread is rubbish and the intimate atmosphere created by closed curtains was rudely dissipated when the sun had set and we were treated to the backdrop of backstreet Ephrata (my Missus asked for the curtain to be re-drawn).

We've had many great meals here. On the pricey side for the local economy, but one of the best high-end places in the Ephrata area. Excellent choice for a business lunch or a nice evening out with someone you love.

My husband and I stayed in Ephrata for a few days. This was the best meal we had there! Service was great and the food was quality and fresh. I ordered the surf and turf (filet mignon and a crab cake) with mash potatoes. I usuaally dont love mash potates, but those where great! The filet was tender and the crab cakes fresh ( and not at all Bready). My husband ordered the filet mignon trio and he was very happy with it! Dinner started with a house salad with a pomegranate dressing which was delishious. They also provided wheat cranberry bread which was fantastic! We really enjoyed our meal.

Decent atmosphere, decent food, decent parking, decent service. Nothing here sticks out as upscale or gourmet here. The food is unpredictable - sometimes very good, other times cold and boring. Do yourself a favor - drive 45 minutes to King of Prussia for that special night out.
