The atmosphere was cheery. The waiter was nice. The food was great. I was at the restaurant with friends. We each ordered a different pizza and shared so that we had a taste of 4 different pizzas. It worked great. Everything was good to eat....More

First, I admit--of all things, I didn't have a beer from their huge list. But the 2-floor glass wall on a downtown corner sets off the spacious, woodsy dining room and long, curved bar--fun setting. The portions are big, fries distinctive, and service attentive--though we...More

Over a trip had a very nice lunch at the Federal taphouse. The pizza was very nice: thin crust and juicy. Enjoyed the beer selection

We were in town for a basketball tournament and stayed across the street. Went for dinner Friday night, drinks Saturday and brunch Sunday. Each visit outstanding! Great food. Brunch was incredible.

Our second time here and there was no hesitation, beyond the omnipresent issue of parking. An early reservation (5:30P) made that a non issue. We snagged an on-street spot within a block. Downtown Lancaster has a big city feel, which York lacks. There’s a verticality...More

Was all going well until they charged me for a $40 bottle of Pinot Grigio, rather than the $28 bottle I asked for. Only realised the next day rang the bar, spoke to Matt, who was really nice and said his manager would ring to...More
