Devons has great seafood and service. Two of us got the ciopino and it was great! Portions are just the right size—not skimpy or overwhelming. Interesting appetizers and desserts. The service was attentive without being annoying.

Excellently prepared dishes. I had the chefs special, Halibut Cheeks. They were superb. My sides were not as warm as I would have liked, but that is the only complaint on this particular trip. Other experience have been excellent.
Service is always exceptional.

Our first visit to Devon was absolutely wonderful! From the greeting at the front desk, to the service at the bar, to the food (highly recommend the Calamari - best I've ever had!! Must say though - everything was delicious!), to our wait team of Josh & Josh... I can't say enough! We've been raving to everyone we see! They made a rare night out a very special occasion, exceeded all of our expectations, and we already can't wait to return.

Very slow service and all of our meals were cold. Very disappointed but manager comped appetizers to try to make up for dinners being served cold. Disappointed-as we have eaten at The Devon many times and it is usually outstanding.

Our reservations for 6 was a table for 4 with a chair at either end. After we were seated they came and placed 6 napkins with silverware rolled up inside, 6 menus and 1 drink/wine list. A busboy came over with 6 tall glasses of ice water and picked the 1st one up by grasping the rim of the glass with his fingers, which was totally inappropriate. In the process he spilled an entire glass on the table and into my lap. A number of wait staff came over and apologized and helped clean up the spill, but there was no manager to be seen and no hint of any compensation, not even a free drink.
After the rest of our party arrived, it took about 15 to 20 minutes for our waitress to come and take our drink order. Then there was another 20 minute plus wait for the drinks to arrive. We were there almost an hour before our orders were taken, which included one lobster bisque a salad and 6 entrees. It was at least another 15 to 20 minutes before the soup and salad arrived and then an additional 20 to 30 minutes for the entrees to arrive.
None of us ordered dessert, yet we still waited about 15 minutes for our checks. It took less than 5 minutes to get the three receipts back after we gave the waitress our credit cards. All told we were in the restaurant for over 2 1/2 hours.
The lobster bisque was very salty and the consistency was not what I would expect, the lobster risotto was the constancy of wallpaper paste and there was not even a hint of the taste lobster in it. I tried my wife’s crab cake, not very tasty.
The restaurant was very noisy, making it difficult to hear people at the other end of the table (i.e. about 6 feet away). Some of the entrees were over priced given the portion sizes. I will say that the biscuits were very good.
In a nut shell, I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We were welcomed and seated as soon as we arrived at 4:45 PM. The atmosphere was inviting. Our hostess, Christina, was very pleasant and helpful at explaining the menu options. After being served our drinks (I had a chocolate vodka martini--it was delicious) we were served their specialty biscuits with honey butter, a real treat, too. My husband had the 8 oz. filet and I had the filet and lobster tail--we so enjoyed our meals. To top it all off, we took the chocolate peanut butter dessert home. All was prepared and presented in a fantastic way. Everything was so special to celebrate our 59th wedding anniversary.

Please give kudos to Christina for making our evening so special. Hopefully, we can come back for our 60th next year on June 10th.

4th time eating at Devon,and I must say the food was lacking. My lobster risotto was mainly lacking lobster. Unfortunately it wasn’t lacking onion, very over powering.

We ordered steak and seafood and everything was cooked to perfection. Wonderful tasting as well.

Three of us were here to celebrate a birthday. The food was beyond great. It came quickly and we each had something different. The food was pricey but very much worth the money especially for a special occasion. We had a wonderful time. We will definitely be back again.

We were seated right away but then no one came to the table for over 10 minutes. When waitress did finally come we ordered everything right away so as not to wait again.
I ordered two steaks one for me and one for my daughter. They asked me to cut into them when delivered to make sure they were the right temp - I cut into mine and it was fine and then went to cut into my 9 year old daughters and the waitress had already left. Guess her steak (which was an adult filet) didn’t count. The steak flavor was where they lost me - it was very woody or smokey. Too much so as that was all you could taste. It was tender though and the mashed potatoes were very good.
For me, it’s not a go back to. I have eaten at too many steakhouses all over the country and this one is forgettable.

Food and service was excellent. Would like to see them open for the lunch hours again and the roasted Parmesan potatoes on the menu again. Would prefer a different choice of music such as a smooth, contemporary jazz or Frank Sinatra type. It would compliment the ambience of the restaurant.

The food is good but for the price point it disappointed. We are from Richmond, Va and the restaurant scene is hard to beat but I think Devon could do better. I had the scallops and my husband had the 18 oz ribeye that was small for $close to $50. My scallops were tiny and had too much salt. It was also hard to talk or hear. On a positive note, the biscuits are were amazing!

We made this reservation hoping for an enjoyable birthday dinner for our son. The service started out ok but the food was definitely not worth the price. The scallops were the size if bay scallops. The lobster risotto had not one piece of lobster and was very gummy. The asparagus was pencil thin and rubbery. We ordered oysters as a starter and someone brought us our meals before the app, seemed surprised we rejected our meals, and then we got the meals about 15 minutes later surely kept warm under the lights. Really poor and disappointing. We’ve dined at Devon in Philadelphia numerous times and it’s so much better. And for my son’s birthday, they gave a business card that said “Happy Birthday “ so that was really special...for a child..to receive a business card. Just stick the the simpler dining options in Hershey and save some money.
