We had not been to the restaurant since it was the Green Hills Inn because it is a 45 minute drive, one way, for us. Dan's is even better than the old Inn. The menu is outstanding; the food is excellent, service was great and the atmosphere is very pleasant. We will definitely be back and I have already recommended Dan's to three other people.

This was our first time at Dan’s, and I’m not sure we would go back again. The staff were all very welcoming and accommodating. And they all really worked well together to help the progression of the meal flow at a really enjoyable pace which was lovely. The food was not nearly the level of delicious I was anticipating. My date ordered a steak (5oz filet) that was overcooked and my chicken dish tasted of raw wine and garlic which completely ruined my pallet for the rest of the meal.

It was extremely loud in the garden room requiring waitstaff to essentially yell in each of our ears to communicate. This did not dissipate until only 2 to 3 tables were being served. Also, as we were having birthday dessert, staff began taking down tables to shut down for the night. Food, however, was excellent!!

We go to Dan's every year on the night before Thanksgiving. It is the anniversary of the day my wife and I met. This was about the 18th year we have been there this night. Our service was outstanding, food is always incredible, and you can't find a more beautiful atmosphere. My crab cakes were perfect and my wife had the special salmon cakes which were wonderful. We love Dan's.

We drive 40 minutes to get to Dan's and it is always well worth the trip!! Monir and Bill run an exceptional restaurant. The food is creative and always delicious (love the sweet potato soup). Monir makes delicious cocktails!! The servers are all professional. We sat out on the patio this past time. It is absolutely lovely with beautiful old trees and white tablecloths on the tables. Everything is first class!! This is my favorite restaurant in Berks County!!

Hubby ordered pork chop, rare. Waitstaff said they would see if kitchen could do rare. Came out overdone. No one checked with hubby prior to making chop if he’d still want it if it couldn’t be done rare. I ordered filet, medium. Came out rare. Sent back and asked for freshly made sides once filet was cooked to temp. Served me the same sides as previously plated. Had to have waitstaff replace with fresh sides. Very disappointed. Waitress was very pleasant and attentive, not her fault kitchen staff was lacking this visit.

My wife and I had dinner with another couple which we hadn’t see in several months. We were seated in the Garden Room overlooking the patio. It was very warm and we decided to eat inside, but still had the outdoors feeling. Our wait staff was very accommodating and were constantly checking to see if we needed anything.

My husband and I came here about 5 years ago after we got engaged. He got a promotion from work recently and we wanted to celebrate. When you walk in, the building smells musty.

I ordered a Caesar salad. In the description on the menu it mentioned “lemon vinaigrette” which would been fine, but it was ALL lemon and little to no Caesar dressing. My husband grabbed a crouton and before he could even taste it he smelled the lemon.

I got the 10oz filet, medium. There was blood pooled on the plate as soon as the server put it down. Additionally I asked to substitute the vegetable for more potatoes, which the server said was fine, but I definitely did not get extra potatoes. The filet was nearly raw once I got to the center. My husband had a pork chop that he didn’t hate but it was also undercooked.

I foolishly ordered dessert believing no one could screw up Creme brûlée, but sadly I was wrong. The sugar was completely burnt. Not just browned like Creme brûlée usually it. It was definitely burnt.

With 2 beers and a glass of wine, plus our food, the bill was about $170 with gratuity.

It’s such a shame, because I was really looking forward to eating there. Either the chef or owner must’ve changed, because the food was nowhere near what it used to be.

As a side note, usually when you’re dining at an expensive restaurant and the server comes to take your plate, if they see it is mostly uneaten they will ask you if everything was okay. That didn’t happen.

This was a great experience with really good service and a pleasant environment. The food was very good and the staff was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this dining experience. A little pricey but a good example of getting what you pay for.
