On a whim we decided to check out this newly reopened Welsh Pub on a Sunday evening. There had been entertainment the evening before and the crowds had gobbled up the specials so there were none of those available but all the other menu items...More

We went here because of the menu descriptions and the items we ordered mostly lived up to the descriptions. We enjoyed the level of seasoning/spice which is very unusual in Lancaster County. We tried multiple small plates and enjoyed 4 out of 5. The price...More

Had dinner on one of the first days open after reconstruction from a fire. Food was very good but I'm sure there were issues in the kitchen as our meal took a long time. Manager comped our drinks and thanked us for our patience.

It may take a little while to get your meal but it is worth the wait. The veggie wrap was delicious! Dave is a real bartender.

Fresh, local ingredients with a unique menu and rare beer selection. This restaurant gets it. The best wings in Lancaster County, nay, the entire region. Rotating Creme Brule flavor. Awesome live music and community services.

My boyfriend and I love this place, great food! Can't wait for the return in the spring! Not sure how the one person left a poor review when they weren't even open in January due to the fire.

The Gryphon is without a doubt the best restaurant/pub in Elizabethtown. Don't get me wrong, the other establishments (Lucky Ducks, Legacy, TJ's) have great social environments, but the FOODIE in me says Gryphon. The menu is always fluid, and I love it. They still keep...More
