Have lived a few miles down the road for over eight years and just now discovered Vickers. Their OpenTable description is spot on - old school / classic gem. Don't head here if yo're looking for the hot spot, but if you want comfort and great food with a classic charm, you won't be disappointed. Just don't be in a hurry - not because they're slow, but rather it's a meal to be patient with especially if you savor any of the tableide delights. Enjoy!

FOOD IS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!
Ok, this spot is literally around the corner from us, but WOW. Beautiful old building, cozy bar area, and piano player. Dining rooms are nice as well and they have a large room for your corporate event. I've been in all, and we love the bar the most for a cozy date night or out with friends. We are totally mystified how the crowds continue to flock to Limoncello (Chester Springs), which just has "ok" food, it very pricey for what you get and tables are PACKED together, literally elbow to elbow with your fellow diners. Check out this gem, you won't regret it, I promise.

I went to Vickers Restaurant for a romantic anniversary dinner and was delighted by the food, ambiance, and service. The food was fresh and delicious. The heirloom tomato salad and shallot crusted trout were superb. I appreciated that the wine list included selections from a variety of price points. The dining room and bar are charming and decorated with pictures related to the historical era of the building. The servers were attentive and professional. I will definitely be returning for another special evening of great food and ambiance.

Great food and service
We had 6 attending for a post-board meeting. Service was excellent and so was the food. I enjoyed the Arctic Char and two colleagues enjoyed the Dover sole. I would recommend for special events.

Dinner at Vickers
This was a charming find! The bar looked inviting and the rooms were small and the tables were elegantly set. Service was attentive but not intrusive. There are many menu items that are prepared table side which makes for a fun evening! The food was prepared to our order and was delicious!

We had visited Vickers several years ago and rediscovered it on a return trip to PA. It is now a must visit whenever we are in the area. If we were locals it would be a routine. The setting is so perfect for the historical area. Everyone at our table ordered different entrees and all were really well prepared and delicious. The heirloom tomato & mozzarella cheese salad was fantastic. Wine list is short, but the selections are good. Of course we had to have desert and they lived up to the quality of the meal. Really added to a great trip to PA.

We have been going to Vickers for a very long time. The Food is always made to perfection and our liking. We always get the Filet Mignon, so cannot comment on all the food items. Really love the heritage Spinach Salad. Joe, our favorite Pianist, in the Bar/Lounge, knows all our favorite songs and we thoroughly love listening to him play. The Waiter/Waitress and entire Staff have always been first class and we have always had great service. We always look forward to going there and travel a distance.
The owner, Arturro, is very friendly and knows how to run a restaurant. We enjoy talking to him and Joe.
They have several dining rooms that are all very nice.

Monday Night Top Notch Fine Dining
My wife and I had a celebrity (Broadway singer) visitor in town during his birthday, and we needed a fine dining restaurant on a Monday night. Robert (manager) crafted our Vesper and French martinis to perfection and set us up in a private room with a fireplace and a little extra lighting (one guest has macular degeneration). Anthony (Maitre d), went the extra mile to start up the fireplace for the first time of the season and prepared our steak Diane flambes accurately (medium rare & medium rare plus) and with love. Kudos to the entire staff, who obviously did everything with great care and attention to service and quality!

Vickers provided the perfect evening for a family and friends get-together. Excellent food, wine and impeccable service.

Good ambiance Ok everything else
We sat near the fire on a cold October evening and it was a very comfortable scene. When we walked in there was no one there to greet us. Table side service was friendly and swift. The wine by the glass has a short but adequate list to choose from. The lobster bisque is good but not great. The filet mignon with Bernaise sauce came out closer to rare than medium. The sauce was ice cold and that made the whole dish cold. The bison steak was very good but that was my first time trying it. I like that the plates were small but the sides were uninspired. It's not a bad place for a nice evening out but in comparison to the Kimberton Inn down the street it is not a good value for what you get.

The food was phenomenal. There
The food was phenomenal. There were three of us, each with different entrees, and we were all very pleased. Based on the reviews, I had higher expectations for the service. Service was still reasonable, but certainly not up to what I was expecting. It was dumb stuff like not taking orders in the sequence in which people were seated and not identifying specials in advance of asking for orders. Maybe it was just a bad night. The wine list had some reasonably priced selections. Most were extremely expensive, and not accessible. It was a very fine meal and I will certainly go there again. The price was a little higher than many places, so I won't be going every month, but certainly on special occasions.

new best find
Vickers was everything one would expect in a restaurant. Food was prepared very well, service was exceptional,surroundings quiet and personal.
We had quite a variety of food: Duck breast was tender& tasty, Scallops/ shrimp dish was delicious, tender & juicy, stuffed pork chop was also very tender and uniquely prepared.
All enjoyed the Caesar salad done at tableside, strong on garlic but delicious.
I would strongly recommend a enjoyable dinner at Vickers knowing it will be pricey.

Wonderful food in a great setting. Cesear salad served table side. Great service and the food was amazing. I highly recommend it. Piano music live.

Delightful Lunch @ Vickers
This has always been a lovely restaurant and believe on this visit for lunch it has gotten better. Server was there when needed and able to answer all our questions. Each one of the diners had something different: diner who had the salmon said "why go elsewhere when you can have a lunch as good as this?" The shrimp tempura with a sweet/sour sauce was delicious. Large shrimp prepared in a crisp, light batter. While the other diner who habitually is looking for an ideal crab cake rates these as A+. Sure, it's a little more costly, but you're not ordering burgers and fries. All three of us will definitely return and would recommend Vickers Tavern.

Despite living in the Delaware
Despite living in the Delaware Valley for 30 years,we had never been to Vickers. This past Saturday was our first, but will certainly not be our last, visit.
Housed in a beautiful old inn type setting, the several small rooms are very pleasant, with no cramping of tables , and most importantly, quiet. The service was pleasant and efficient. Great drinks from the bar (Manhattan, cosmos, Pimms) and good, fairly priced wine selections.
Caesar salad (for 2, prepared table side) was outstanding as billed. Excellent rack of lamb, among the House specialties. Lobster bisque also super.
Overall, top quality country style, continental dining. We shall return - soon.

We had a great time at the bar prior to meeting our friends, and were pleasantly surprised at how tasty everything was!
We would go back, and I would bring clients too! Ryan was an excellent bartender!

Chester county gem
Vickers is our go to resturant when visiting Chester County from our Virginia home. The duck special on Saturday was great!

Wonderful food, attentive service. Made a special occasion very memorable.

Would definately go back again.

Always a winner
My wife and I have eaten at Vickers 3 or 4 times in the past year. Each time we have a very pleasant experience. Great service from experienced people, very good food from the appetizers through dessert, and a good wine selection (although limited). We recommend you try Vickers and find out for yourself. We have not sat in the bar area, however each time we dine there, it seems to be a lively option.
