We arrived early and were able to be seated right away. The specials were interesting as was the soup selection, I enjoyed the baked tomato soup while my partner tried the French onion soup. The portions were well sized and left no room for desert. The on-lite parking was a real plus.

The service was very inviting and warm as usual. We always have Baked Tomato Soup even if we split it and enjoy other things. In fact sometimes we get hungry for the Baked Tomato Soup and make the 1 hour drive just because. Hand cut french fries and sweet potato fries are about as good as they get anywhere. The Fried Asparagus is really good also but, be careful it is MOLTEN HOT when it arrives so sneak up on it. The salads are great. Very chilled and the selection of dressings is better than most places. On this visit we had 2 Baked Tomato Soups, a salad and the Roast Beef Sandwich au jus with the house cut fries. We traded half way through so we could both enjoy everything. It was wonderful. The place is very nice- quite formal on one side and very neighborly on the Bar side. We usually sit in the Bar area. They do a great job with Adult Beverages also. The prices are quite reasonable, not gouging as in some of the Tourist Destinations.. If you wish to experience Lancaster County and not just the tourist stuff, I recommend you use Strasburg as a base to explore from, and we enjoy this restaurant often. The Inn no longer offers rooms, but the hospitality is still what I imagine it was 100 years ago. This is just down the road from the Pa. Railroad Museum and the train rides that are a must.

We there was 8 other friends and we definitely all had a lovely time. Originally only 2 of us had reservations but when we called they made every effort to accommodate all of us. Considering that it was a Friday night, they did an excellent job of making room for us. The wait staff was good and the food was great. Food and drink prices are reasonable. All in all, a great experience.

The wait staff are very attentive and want to make sure you feel welcome. Pleasant atmosphere for any age group. We have gone there to watch football games that were only on satellite and they were very accommodating. Reasonable prices. Fun, seasonal drinks and food specials. Someplace you'd take your grandma or your best buds for a night out, it's that versatile.

We were referred to this place from Strasburg Scooters, and we were very glad for it! The service was great. REAL wait staff. Friendly, attentive, and never an empty glass! The food was delicious and there was no wait when we went. Highly recommend this place if you are in the area. We will surely stop in again the next time we are there. Keep up the great work!
