“Great Dining Experience”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Thanks to Nikki for a great dining experience. Stayed at the Smithton Inn with two other couples and walked in for dinner. Able to sit very quickly in the dining room and was greeted by Nikki. Our traveling group of six can be a bit to handle but she was a champ. Pulled menus from both the dining room and the pub side meeting the needs of each of us. The food was fantastic and the desserts are to die for. Would highly recommend!!!

“Out of the way gem!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

After a long day out and about we were close to the supper hour, but were turned off by the lines at some of the places, the tourist joints along Rt. 30, not to mention the prices for the same old, same old. Wandered off the beaten path, determined to find something en route home but fortunately drove outside of Ephrata, found the Old Lincoln House, Tavern, Restaurant, all of the above. Great pub charm, surprising brews on draft, amazing starters, and decent prices and service made for a wonderful Saturday night out and about in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania.
Try the potato pancake with goat cheese appetizer with a Yuengling Lager….we will return for sure.

“Very good meal”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is the first time I dined at the Olde Lincoln House and was very pleased. We were in a party of eight and everyone enjoyed the meal and dining experience. We had the french onion soup, baked tomato soup and split pea soup. All very delicious. Entrees were prime rib, delmonico steak, crab cakes, scallops etc. Some had salad, some rice, some garlic mashed potatoes, zucchini, etc. Dessert was the molten lava cake and baked apple tart. Over all everyone was pleased and the food was very good and very generous portions. Wait staff was very efficient with us dining on the second floor. Only complaint - catsup bottle was placed on the table. We did not need the catsup and it would have made a better appearance in a nice dish. We will plan on returning there again in the near future.

New Years Eve dinner with wife and friends. I had the Scallops with Rice. My wife had the Crab Cakes. The other couple specifically enjoyed the Sweet Potatoe Pancake Stackers. A great meal all around!
