“We love this little corner restaurant!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

So nice to support a locally owned restaurant that offers a fun menu with excellent service. This is one of our favorite places to go - especially for that special occassion. Perfect for a nice evening with adult family and friends - not so much for the kids, though.

“They had it all together for New Year's Eve!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

We were fortunate to get a table New Years Eve but it only got better from there. First, this restaurant isn't about parking your car, it's about VERY nice food. Crab soup, specialty house salad, filets and veal offerings that perfect. No one at our table tried the salmon, but the steaks and veal were first rate. Cooked perfectly, timely with great sauces. Their bar offerings, and beer selection is very good. They've resurrected the classic Side Car and they make it right. Our service was attentive, and festive. Everyone enjoyed their dining experience. We fully intend to return again, and again.

“Average-expected more”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Had dinner at this out of the way neighborhood bar/restaurant and was expecting something better. Seating is tight and rear tables overlook an unsightly wardrobe & coat rack. Ceasar salad tasted like refrigerator. Pasta alfredo was very tart/citrus tasting which was unexpected. Entree portions were huge but was disappointed server did not mention this since we over-ordered appetizers. Not anxious to return.

“Nothing new here, move along.”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Jethro's used to be among my favorites. But the competition around Lancaster county has been improving and sadly Jethro's has remained the same - exactly the same.
I have been there on and off for 15 years and the menu is virtually the same as my first visit. Maybe that is not a negative quality to some, to me it felt in need of a good refreshing/updating.
On the positive side, you will get good food, good service, and nice ambiance for a good price.This is a cozy little restaurant where you recognize the staff from year to year which is a plus over the typical corporate chain restaurants. There is also great little neighborhood type bar wit an "everyone knows your name" feel.
I would easily pick this over any national restaurant and it is a good place to go.
I think there is potential for it to be even better than it is.
