My wife and I like to go to Lehman's when we are in that area. It's near my first hometown and it has remained very much the same for many years. We find this comforting. On this St. Patrick's Day we stopped in after a procedure in Philly. It was early - about 5 p.m. Barbara, who has been at... More

When we have a morning flight out of PHL, we stay in a nearby motel the previous night and, more often than not, have dinner at Lehman's. Yes, it's old-school decor, but the food and service are great. The roast beef is always a hit. I like the chicken Marco Polo, which is a huge portion. Ample free parking. We've... More

We went here while staying at a nearby airport hotel the night before a flight out of town. What a great step back in time. The restaurant features paneled walls & reminded me of family restaurants of the past. I had the veal parmigiana, while my partner had the honey dipped chicken with a side of spaghetti (I thought it... More

We had a business dinner here at our guests' request. I liked he old-fashioned feel of this place, which has operated since 1938. The bar area allows smoking, and that odor permeates part of the first dining room, so we asked to be seated in the back of the second room. Full dinners, old-fashioned style, but food that is not...

Some of the best prime rib I've ever had. They had a free shuttle to and from our hotel & Ann Marie, our server was amazing! I also highly recommend the Lima Bean soup & the Lemon Chiffon cake.

Enjoyed a lovely meal on Sunday. They were very accommodating and the food was delicious. 3 of our party of 4 had the shrimp stuffed with crab meat:) I will definitely go back the next time we are in the area!

Lehman's Tavern has excellent food. I have eaten there on numerous occasions and ordered different dishes. No matter what I get it never disappoints! The staff is friendly and fast. Always a good choice.

I walked in and I hoped the food was good. I was NOT disappointed. The special that night was prime rib and crab cake. I love them both and both were excellent. If you are looking for a great meal this is the place you want to go. Well worth the money you will spend. My waitress was an older... More

While the actual cut of meat was not bad, the place managed to ruin it. The steak that was broiled had absolutely no sear and no seasoning at all. It was an insult to meat everywhere. Also asked for medium rare and got on the well side of medium. Barely pink inside. Another insult to the poor animal who gave... More

Great turkey dinner. Waitresses are great, food portions are large. You will take home food for sure. Nice place close to the airport and hotels. Great for business lunches as well. I have been going here for 35 years and it is great. Denny who runs the place is always on top of everything. Wait staff is prompt and the... More
