    This restaurant has great food in a warm and inviting atmosphere. There are fireplaces in every room, and even though they weren't on when we were there this time, the ambiance is cozy and romantic. The noise level was a bit higher this visit, but not too much to hold a pleasant conversation. Overall, a perfect special occasion spot or just a great place to get a delicious meal!

    Our group was disappointed with our overall experience. The food was only fair and the service slow - we do't mind leisurely but three hours was a little much. Plus, the kitchen forgot? to prepare the entree for one of our party, which didn't help the mood. We suggested to our B&B hosts that they consider not recommending this restaurant.

    We visited this restaurant by finding it on open table. It was great. We just wished we knew it was BYOB. It also has an outside patio that is lit up at night, so if it is warm outside that is a nice feature. Will definitely revisit. Our waitress Summer could not have been more nice or accommodating.

    Excellent food in a historic building. Love the exposed stone wall in the dining room. Menu had several items that appealed to me. Decided on prime rib & my companion had salmon. Both of us enjoyed our meals very much. Dessert was very good as well. Coffee was especially good. May sound insignificant, but I've had some bad coffee in nice restaurants before. Highly recommend the Revere Tavern. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area.

    My husband and I ate at Revere Tavern on a Sat. night (Sept. 2014) while staying in the Lancaster area. Our two entrees were the filet and scallops. I can honestly say both were excellent. I also ordered the french onion soup which is one of the best I've ever tasted. I would definitely go back when in the area again.

    Being in Lancaster with a group of friends to play USTA tennis, we were looking for a place to relax and have quiet conversation and good food. The restaurant is very nicely appointed and both food service and food were good. The only complaint was that several dishes were not hot. Even though a dish has good flavor, it it looses it's appeal when the dish is lukewarm.

    The restaurant was beautiful, historical and quaint, and our dining experience was wonderful as far as the food itself and atmosphere were concerned. However, because we were served so slowly, with at least 4 other parties seated after us being served there food, we were a bit disenchanted. Didn't ruin the evening, but wasn't as nice as it should have been.

    Our server Melissa C rushed us from the beginning. We were trying to enjoy our cocktail before dinner. she approached the table three times trying to get our order. Upon ordering, while eating our salad out comes our dinner. We have never had this type of server at the Revere in the past.

    We had asked for a quiet corner table and that is what they gave us, in the Stephen Foster Room. The ambiance was lovely - we could feel the history of the house. Our server Michelle was perfect, attentive yet not intrusive, very helpful and caring. The food was delicious, perfectly prepared, and brought quickly and still steaming to our table. We will definitely be back!

    We have been visiting the Lancaster area for years now and every time we do we look forward to our dinner at the Revere Tavern. This place is Amazing! The food, service and aviance are outstanding! We have tried a few diffrent dinner selections and each one was better than the next. My husband states their Porterhouse Steak is the best steak he has ever eaten! I'm partial to the Veal Marsala.... if you like veal you will love theirs! We don't only go their for the delicious food, we look forward to seeing our favorite server, Sharon. She always makes us feel welcomed and special. Her awesome personality and attentiveness to her patrons is above and beyond!!! We are already looking forward to our next visit!

    This was our second visit to this restaurant. The only "mis-step" was that the host tried to seat us in the room on the left. Before even entering the area, we could hear a screaming child. It was 8:15 and probably too late for such a young child. We quickly indicated that we didn't want to sit there. He took us to the "room on the right". It is the same one we enjoyed on our last visit. Mostly older folks and very enjoyable. We HATE being able to hear discussions from tables that aren't even next to us! We like the price and quality of the wine available by the carafe. We plan on going here on our next visit to the area.

    This is a nice restaurant but nothing special. Our food was adequate and service just acceptable. The location right on Route 30 coupled with the historic nature of the building give this establishment a head start on meeting a diner's expectation, but management let's you down with just adequate cuisine and service and above average prices.

    Picked this placed based on other reviews from the OpenTable app. Just a few minutes drive from where we were staying in Intercourse, PA. Although we did have a initial problem with the pin placement being off by about a mile on the GPS. A phone call to the restaurant was met with a kind, quick directional fix. My wife and I both had seafood, her the Tilapia and I the broiled combo. Both dishes were excellent. Fish was fresh. We'll definitely go back the next time we're there.

    While on vacation in Lancaster, we saw an advertisement for the Revere Tavern and thought the food looked delicious! We reserved a table and looked forward to the evening. We did not check to see if they were kid-friendly, which was our mistake, since we were traveling with the kids. The restaurant was dimly lit, extremely quiet, as seating was intimate. I spent the entire diner praying that my children's voices weren't disturbing other diners. Our overall experience was pleasant, but we most likely wouldn't go back with the kids.

The dining room with the fireplace is very romantic with the soft lights. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any one who is looking for a reasonably priced place to enjoy a delicious meal and with a cozy atmosphere. We will be back.

    We eat here every time we visit the Lancaster area. We ate here Friday and Saturday night. Food is excellent. Crab cakes are lump crab and prime rib cut is large. Desserts are heavenly. Prices are fair and service is top notch. The Paul Revere is really why we come to the area to visit, the sites and shopping are secondary.

    This was our second visit; its convenient from Exton. The food was, as before, really good.....fresh, well-prepared, and creative. Portions are large. The service was considerably slow on this visit; it was clear based on observation that the waitress had more tables than she could provide prompt service for.

    This is our 3rd year coming here and for the 1st time I actually got a meal I wasn't crazy about. I got the seafood special and it was really dry. It needed some butter, garlic, etc . . . something! Other than that, I've always had an excellent meal. And, what's with the one roll for each of us in the basket. Do we need to ask for another roll each time we want one.? Put 4-5 rolls in there and call it a day! We had recommended this restaurant to the owners of the Bible Museum just down the road and they were actually dining when we got there. So, we do recommend it, just a little disappointed with the seafood.
