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.

I got to eat crab legs for the first time in years and not just crab legs but fries with crab on top! Wow! I love it!!! The staff was great, and the atmosphere was nice too... I will definitely go back next time I am in town.

Stopped in here for lunch. We ate in the cozy bar area although the several dining rooms also looked very nice. A nice selection of sandwiches to choose from.

We shared an appetizer of short rib ragu over pumpkin bread, which was delicious and unusual! Both entrees, steak and a chicken dish, were well prepared and excellent! We shared a bottle of wine, which was moderately priced. Atmosphere, service plus, combined to make this an excellent dinner. Would definitely return when in the area,

The food and atmosphere is great; never had a bad experience. The staff is attentive and service is exceptional. Live nearby and we often walk to the Olde Lincoln House during the warmer weather and have lunch/dinner in the outdoor-seating Tiki Barn. One of my favorite places to dine inside or outdoors.

Thank Jane P
