A word from The Washington House
The seven story tower of The Washington House Restaurant has been a landmark for over 100 years in the town of Sellersville, Bucks County, PA. Today it continues to represent warm hospitality and convivial good times. Rescued and lovingly restored in the 1980s by proprietors William Quigley and Elayne Brick, the restaurant is well known for its thoughtful service and inventive American cuisine. With four intimate dining rooms, a pre-prohibition period bar and a patio for fair weather months, it offers a romantic atmosphere of relaxed elegance. Patrons especially enjoy the carefully chosen wine and beer lists and a year round calendar of events including beer and wine tastings, specialty food nights, holiday events and seasonal menus.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Would have liked to see a couple more selections on the menu"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Great fine dining restaurant I forget is nearby. My husband has a restrictive diet but there were several interesting options to make the dining experience fun for him."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "The staff at The Washington House is well trained, polite and attentive. The ambiance is quaint and inviting. However, the summer menu does not take advantage of fresh ideas or seasonal local produce. Healthy eating and an international flair combined with a few American favorites (a great burger, a sauteed chicken dish and a broiled fish) would round out the menu. This restaurant has great potential given its location and history. We hope The Washington House considers investing in a menu make-over. We'd love to invite our foodie friends to this place."

  • "The Washington House is right next door to the Sellersville Theatre and whenever we take in a show we have dinner here first. We've always had great food and service. If it was closer to where we live, we'd eat here much more often. Consistently delicious!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I made our reservation online with no problem. Since we were seeing a show after dinner, I made sure to book our dinner well ahead of the start time. We were seated in a timely manner and our food arrived hot and without delay. Our server was super nice and besides the two large parties of guests in the dining room, it was nice and comfy. My husband had a hard time deciding on what beer to drink, as the specialty beer list was pretty long. I'd definitely go back."

  • "Nice, upscale restaurant in Sellersville. Our server Kelly was really helpful answering our questions about the different specials and dishes. Also made sure our drinks were never empty and stopped by couple times during the meal to make sure we were OK and to see if there was anything else we needed. I had the prime rib Kelly recommended and am glad I did. Ordered it medium rare and it was perfectly cooked. Overall, a great experience. Looking forward to our next visit."

  • "Lovely place to go coupled with a great show at the theater next door!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The WH is a convenient spot for dining b/f you go to a show at the ST. They make sure you get served on time. The food is good, but really more expensive than it should be for the portion sizes. My husband's chicken was sized like a Cornish hen breast, and didn't even include a leg. My hamburger was OK, but only included potato chips rather than ff for $9."

  • "Quiet, and has a nice outdoor seating area. But you should make a reservation if going before a concert. Food and service are great."

  • "I've been at The Washington House four times now. Three meals were simply okay, but the last visit was amazing. I tried the split pea with crab soup...fantastic. The fish special that night was Halibut....perfection. One of the best meals I have had anywhere in a very long time. I hope the special continue to be this wonderful."

  • "The food has not been up to par lately. One person's fries were cold and the food the time before was overloaded with/in lemon."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I had to wait for the rest of my party to show up so I sat in the bar. Nice old bar, great service and interesting beers Once my group showed up we were immediately taken to our table. Again service was good and the food was very good. I would go again and invite friends or customers."

  • "The Washinton House has become a favorite. It offers very good food moderately priced and great ambience. The bar is long old fashioned and wonderful and perfect for a relaxed dining experience. The dining areas are very nice for more formal dining. Sellersville has a gem!!!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Never disappointed. Travel an hour and a half to come here and then walk over to Sellersville Theater for a great concert."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The atmosphere was very nice - a mere cover-up to a disastrous evening. The server was friendly and nice but sloooowww. Couldn't understand that when it wasn't overly crowded. Not sure what the reason was for our HOUR-long wait to eat - got there at 6pm - ate AFTER 7pm - unacceptable. Our kids got restless because they were hungry but at least the server gave them a basket of small toys to play with and take home. That was the highlight. When we finally got our food, we may as well have gone to McDonalds. Our kids' burgers were overcooked nasty-tasting balls. Husband's Father's Day dinner, a burger as well, was tasteless. And my meal was on the small side but at least decent enough. I had to go looking for our server twice. Poor."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Overall our experience was pretty good. The mimosas and bloody mary's were great! We think the server forgot our entrees though. After the appetizer, it was about an hour before we got entrees and the micro greens on top of my salmon were cooked like they had been sitting under a heat lamp or something. If it wasn't for the great scenery outside and the beautiful day, I'm not sure if we would've been okay with that. I would still go back for brunch again. It's not a great excuse, but it was very busy, so that's probably why the server forgot about us. My dad enjoyed himself."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Reservations for a party of four at 6pm pre-concert at the Sellersville Theatre. One would think 1 1/2 hours would be sufficient for casual dining, guess again. The food hit the table at 1 hr 15 minutes. The apology was "we got busy". A very disappointing experience. I have dined at the Washington House on many occasions with an overall decent experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I took my sister to the Washington House to celebrate a special birthday and it was very special! The food was delicious and our waitress was very nice and attentive. We had tickets to the Sellersville Theater afterwards and our waitress timed the meal perfectly."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My friend and I enjoyed the peace and quiet at the Washington House. The food was good and the service was very good. Great place for lunch, dinner or a holiday and special occasion. I recommend it to many of my friends."

  • "Old 1894 Inn with a romantic atmosphere. Eclectic menu. Nice bar area."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "A friend and I met for lunch at the Washington House in Sellersville recently. It was a great choice. The weather outside was dreary, but the Victorian decor within cheered us, and the Kale and Mango Salad I ordered, delicious. My friend ordered a sandwich special; we both had hot tea but no dessert (not that it wasn't tempting!). We weren't rushed and so had plenty of time to discuss my career change, my friend's new novel, and various writer's groups and which were worth the time. In short, our server kept us plied with food and tea, and we transacted friendly business in high style. It was a delightful, productive afternoon, and the bill for each of us, with tip, was about $13. You just can't beat that. Great job, Washington House!"

  • "I had a great lunch with my Boss. The food was very good and they had a seafood special that was better than expected. The service was fantastic and I would happily go back again."

  • "We always enjoy the dining experience at the Washington House. The service is outstanding, but there is this relaxed atmosphere that makes the Washington House such a special place. The menu is always interesting, the food is always delicious and the presentation is always perfect."

  • "Fantastic food from a menu that is updated seasonally and also daily specials. Beautiful surroundings-historic restaurant with wonderful decoration and furnishings. Friendly and competent waitstaff."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "A really good restaurant in a beautiful old building right with VERY nice and competent staff, next to a wonderful venue for hearing music that sells reserved seats so you can dine before the show without anxiety. What could be better?"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "This is the fourth or fifth time I've eaten here. The food is wonderful. The presentation of the food is attractive, but this s not one of those restaurants where a tiny serving artistically presented is considered enough. The servings are generous and everything we ate was delicious."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The Washington House is a great place to go! Lunch, dinner, brunch - you name it, they get an A+ for each. Staff could not be nicer; food could not be better; love going there."

  • "We had an excellent dinner at the Washington house before a show at the Sellersville Theater, Sunday night, May 25. I highly recommend their Spring Pea Soup with Jumbo lump crabmeat!! It was to die for! I also had the petite filet of beef with roasted fingerling potatoes, from the appetizer menu and coupled with that soup, it was the perfect amount of food for the night and cooked to perfection. My boyfriend had the Crispy Parmesan Eggplant Sandwich, that he also said was very tasty. The restaurant is very quaint and has an extensive menu. I would highly recommend it for any occasion and especially before seeing a show at the Sellersville Theater."

  • "We have visited the Washington House several times and have always found it to be a special dining experience. The food was excellent and the service was first rate."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "It is next door to the Sellersville Theater, so a lot of people have dinner there before a show. They always seem surprised by the crowd and the fact everyone is trying to get to the show. It takes a half hour after you order to even get your salads. You need an hour and a half to eat there before a show. No problem with the food."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We had calamari for an appetizer which I highly recommend and angus burgers which came to table cooked as ordered and delicious. Service was good and the outside dining a real treat. "
