We stayed not too far from here and stopped one night for dinner after spotting it on the side of the road. We weren't expecting the excellent experience we were about to receive! This place is a real gem. The menu was pleasantly sophisticated for the price and had a lot of variety. I had a Delmonico steak with an... More

We had a 6:00 dinner reservation on a Friday evening. We were seated immediately about five minutes early. The server had great timing. I got the rack of wild boar with root vegetables and my wife ordered filet mignon with garlic potatoes. Both were excellent. We wife ordered a gluten free chocolate dessert and I ordered a coconut mouse layered... More

We ate a lite dinner at the bar. I had an excellent creamy, cheesy tomato soup and a sweep potato/goat cheese/cranberry stack that was very good. My husband had some wings, which he said we're very good. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We would happily return if we are in town again.

We visit the area for antiquing getaways, and always enjoy dinner at the Olde Lincoln House. Arrived about 5 pm without a reservation, but they were still able to seat us in the dining room. Hubs had the filet mignon, I had the chicken with asparagus, tomatoes and mushrooms over pasta. Entrees were delicious and portions were sized just right.... More

Food was delicious, but a bit salty. I ordered the delmonico streak, brussel sprouts and baked potato. A healthy pour of a house glass of pinot noir to start. My kids had chicken fingers and fries which were a bit overdone, but edible. The service was excellent and all of the staff was very friendly. The decor was so interesting... More

This quaint former boarding house converted to a restaurant offers turn of the century construction coupled with amazing cuisine. I had the crab dip for a starter and it was outstanding. For dinner I chose the Pan-Seared Scallops with risotto complimented with 3 Pound IPA from local St. Boniface brewery. Two craft beers, the crab dip and the main course... More

A group of us got together for a working dinner meeting. We were seated upstairs in a private room. Well appointed with some antique pieces and old books. The food was presented, along with some very nice bar beverages, in a timely manner by a very pleasant server. The evening was capped off by a nice selection of desserts.

Boneless Short Rib is the best you will ever have. Don't miss Prime Rib either. Every visit we were impressed with excellent quality of food. This is simply the best in Ephrata. Unfortunately the services are just OK. The wait staff sometimes are not very attentive or caring. One young hostess is so inexperienced that the host job looks very... More

Sat at the bar this evening. Barmaid was courteous. Had the pulled pork sandwich. Very good. Very nice place for either a big meal or just a sandwich. Nice atmosphere.

Love the burgers. Great place for a meal and a beer. If you are looking for a nice dinner, the scallops are fantastic. Prices are fair.
