Diner Reviews
  • "Been here several times. I guess the chef doesn't like to make meat well done. I asked for well done and not fatty, took a long time to make it to the table. Waitress said because I wanted it well done. It finally came rare and fatty. Didn't eat most of it. told the waitress why. She said sorry and offered me a dessert. No thanks Had good meals in the past. Not sure we will go again"

  • "I took my 7 year old granddaughter to Greenfield after a Saturday performance at The Fulton. What a great experience for her. Jonathan treated her like a grown- up which she loved. We had a wonderful dining experience, great meal Shells & Cheese for her and the Chicken Cashew salad for me. Chocolate Decadence for dessert and she pronounced it correctly!! Thanks for a memorable day."

  • "My wife and I had our 12th wedding anniversary at the Greenfield and this is also our third time and they have yet to disappoint. The service is top notch and attentive. The food is well prepared, flavorful and unique. The drinks are also one-of-a-kind. Our previous two dinners there were in the secluded wine cellar, which is very romantic and full of ambience. This time, however, we wanted some place different, so we chose the balcony, which is also inside, but on the second floor overlooking the lounge. It was also out of the way of other groups of people and we could still hear the piano player that night. We have definitely made this our go-to place for romantic dinners in Lancaster."

  • "I had lunch on the patio and everything was lovely. The service is attentive and the foos was delicious. My friend and I both had strawberry chicken salad. Large portions and the chicken is perfectly prepared"

  • "We had a late reservation for 10 of us. We had the place mostly to ourselves and enjoyed the restaurant very much. Food was very good. The piano player, who we were right next to, was fabulous. Not loud but added just the right touch to our evening."

  • "Nice setting in Greenfield deco omens. Across street nice walking trails around lakes with swans. Food is great. Early American ambiance in dining room. Modern eaton bar with outside ding. Just a great spot for a nice leisurely dinner. "

  • "I was disappointed in the restaurant. Service was slow, food took almost an hour after ordering to serve main course. Pacing was totally off, and despite requests to ensure vegetarian diners meals, it seemed the vegetables were cooked with bacon. The final straw was despite multiple requests to turn down A/C (it was rainy day, hence it was actually freezing inside) we had to leave before the desert course. They did bring the check quickly though, but didn't pick it up and the other diners had to leave the table due to the cold while I sat for 5-10 minutes waiting and finally hunted down a waitress to run the bill while I stood there in the hallway. Totally unprofessional. "

  • "Group of 10 from Eastern PA and MD returned for yet another great dining experience. Food and service were excellent and ambiance allowed for conversation. We will return. "

  • " The perfect spot to celebrate a birthday, particularly an elderly relative's who has difficulty hearing and communicating. The staff was most accommodating. They permitted me to bring a birthday cake, which our waitress served along with ice cream for the very modest charge of $2.50 per person. And she could not have been more patient with or kind to the birthday "girl." Greenfield's is a short distance and welcome respite from the mediocre food and crowded chaos of the chain restaurants along Route 30. We'll be back! "

  • "I've eaten here many times and it is always consistently good. Suggested it for a date night and was not disappointed. Super food, great drinks and good service. There just enough to keep things rolling but, away enough to give us alone time to catch up on life and romance. "

  • "I had the Buffalo. I didn't care for it. Too red and too tough. My wife had the Walleye. She didn't care for it"

  • "My husband and I loved our evening at Greenfield! The food was excellent and dinner in the wine cellar was super romantic!!! Our service was fabulous!!!!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We really liked the atmosphere mainly because the tables are not too close to each other so it was fairly quiet. The food was outstanding! We had the rock fish/salmon chowder and it was excellent! Our filets were done exactly as we ordered them. The service was excellent too. We will definitely eat there again!"

  • "ok the cellar is great for a nice romantic dinner. now with that said the service we had was awful. the calamari was bland. the rack of lamb is awesome. the barrel cut of prime rib was horrible. the spatzele was just as bad very doughie. the mash potatoes cold. then the expresso martinis we ordered for dessert was even worst. would I go back NO,No,No"

  • "This is really a great place to dine, Food, Wine and Service is finest we have experienced in Lancaster County. Recommend.10 out of 10. Don't tell to many about it. Owners could let it go to their head or it could become overrun. LOL."

  • "This was the first time my husband and I ate at Greenfield, and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent with many choices for our diverse palates. Our server was knowledgable and made fantastic recommendations. I absolutely recommend the Greenfield Inn if you are looking for romantic ambience and superb food."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "All in all, nice atmosphere, good food for a fast food restaurant, but way overpriced for what you are getting. I suspect the management got a good reputation and then started raising prices and lowering quality. So sad. Would never recommend to a friend. Prime rib below average and tasteless, even with the $3 onions. Grilled veggies were far from fresh. Desserts seemed mass produced but tasty."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "A special restaurant that has a good mix of semi-casual dining with fine dining food. The service is always friendly, personable, and attentive. My wife and I recommend the seafood. It is very fresh and cooked perfectly. Live music on the weekends, special events, and gracious hosts make it a memorable experience."

  • "Our first time at the wonderful Greenfield Restaurant and we were very impressed. The food was superb and the service delightful. It was a fifty minute drive from our home, but it was very with it! We round most definitely return."

  • "One of the few upscale restaurants left with fair pricing. Really enjoy it for that special occasion, like Valentine's brunch. If you haven't, or it has been awhile since you have been to Greenfield, try it."

  • "The servers were knowledgeable and delivered excellent service. We even had a small spill and someone was at our table before we had time to react. Two of our diners had the pork and both commented on how moist and flavorful the dish turned out to be. Another diner had the crab cakes and absolutely loved them! The restaurant is a beautiful old barn or maybe a carriage house. We were seated in the bar area which had some nice piano music playing, but there are other areas of the restaurant that are more secluded and romantic."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Good atmosphere, service was good, not intrusive. Based on other reviews we expected the food to be a little more upscale, but it was okay, biscuits and muffins were good. We were there for brunch so will go back and try dinner."

  • "We were celebrating our mother's birthday and the staff suggested we sit in the wine cellar. It was cozy and quiet (except for us) and a perfect setting. I had checked out the menu prior to our visit and was excited to try the sea scallops which featured a local favorite of mine, turkey sausage from the Turkey Lady at Lancaster Central Market. The food tasted delightful, and with the risotto it all seemed the perfect arrangement. The rest of my party equally enjoyed their food as well. Our server was attentive and fun, and we were even honored to have a table visit from the head chef. It was a superb experience and I would recommend Greenfield to anyone."

  • "Our experience was great, fourth visit. Joe our server was very very good, attentive and conversational. If I had only one recommendation, it would be to offer the beet salad as an upgrade. Even a few dollars to exchange for the dinner salad, you could make maybe $12 dollars for a $15 dollar salad. No big deal, just a thought. Really a top notch night out. Thank you!!"

  • "Up front, I have to say this is the first time EVER we saw a waitress perform this act. I ordered a second glass of wine when my first glass was about 1/3 full. The waitress arrived with the second glass and before I could say anything, she picked up the first glass, DUMPED the 1/3 full into the new glass of wine and walked away. We were dumbfounded. We were there for a weekend lunch -- a celebration -- and wanting a "dinner" meal. None of the main dishes the restaurant is known for are served at lunch, and the website does NOT show the lunch menu, which turned out to be soup, salad or sandwiches. Whiile the mushroom and french onion soups were good, we felt more like we were in a diner than a fine dining establishment."
