Love this restaurant ! The cheese platter was delicious . The bread for the table is made fresh and served hot , sourdough is my favorite. Shrimp and grits was excellent and the wine was perfect. Ambience is relaxing as well .

i love the décor and we sat pretty quickly. Server was nice but we waited longer that I would have liked for a drink order and then there was a collision so my drink had to be remade. Also, it took a long time for her to come clear. The apologies were there but they couldn't change anything. I like fish and chops but everything is very "saucy" which is not my preference. I ended up getting the chicken which was very good. I don't prefer to eat chicken when out to dinner. Some simply seafood dishes would be welcome. My partner's scallops were very good and not "saucy".

Nice restaurant in Peddler’s Village. Great for lunch, but not so much for dinner. Great service!

It was a rainy night so we decided to get there early. We were seated right away and the waitress came over after the water and bread arrived. We ordered drinks and it took a long time for them to arrive about 20 minutes. We ordered our food when the drinks arrived. I ordered a Caesar and the Vegetarian Bolognese and my husband ordered the She Crab soup and the Filet. The soup and salad arrive fast and we ordered a second round of drinks. We enjoyed the soup and salad which I would say were very good. The plates were cleared before our drinks arrived again. Our entrees arrived and my husband steak was perfect. My Bolognese not so much. The pasta was less than Al Dente and the sauce was more like chunky tomato with some mushroom sauce. I Didn't see any other veggies like the eggplant that was described on the menu. After dinner we ordered the Creme Brulee and We both feel that it was the worst we have ever had. Sorry to say it but it is more like cheep vanilla pudding with butter and sugar on top. I guess next time we should order the Dumpling dessert that looks good.

Great lunch. Steak frites were excellent and the pastrami salmon club was out of the usual and quite tasty.

Can’t speak highly enough about Earl’s. No negatives at all. Everything was top notch from the food to the service. It’s well worth the price. Special kudos to our server, Sal. Go!

Our Valentine's Dinner at Earl's was wonderful; the wait staff who attended to us was friendly, knowledgable, engaging, and lively - a lovely person. Our dinners were delicious and the warm brownie topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream was just the right thing to sweeten our evening. We'll definitely return to Earl's.

The only reason I didn’t give a 5 star on service was because of the hostess. She was missing for a long time. She finally came to the hostess stand and totally disregarded the line that had formed and talked to a lady who rudely pushed her way to the front of everyone. The hostess should’ve acknowledged that others were waiting, and politely had that rude lady wait her turn. Instead, even after others let the hostess know we all are waiting to check in like this rude lady, she totally disregarded that and told us “oh it’s no big deal everyone will get to checkin at some point!” Well there is a line and that impacts wait time depending when you check in. Please be considerate of the people waiting respectfully!!

Went out with my hubby for Valentines. Fried Tomatoes were Awesome, entree’s and salads delicious. I guess my only issue was seating.they sat us at a table when there were open booths. I guess I could have requested but did not. Our server Doreen was attentive and efficient.

This was my first time at Earl’s and it was great! They had Valentine’s Day specials but still had their whole regular menu available as well which is key for me, a picky eater with my vegan husband. They had two different vegetarian options which we could make vegan enough to work and delicious filet mignon for me! Service was great as well. Dessert menu also looked amazing but we were too full to try anything.

Food was very good but not very creative. However, what is offered is done well. This restaurant can get very noisy especially as tables fill up with guests. Tables are a bit close together (most likely to seat the maximum amount of guests) while the dining areas utilize mostly all hard surfaces (causing the sound to bounce around the room). It seems little thought went into volume levels from guests and ways to absorb or soften the cacophony of voices with softer sound absorbing materials.

Loved the service, but had to wait 15 minutes despite having a reservation. I guess they are popular, therefore truly busy. It was noisy so folks were having a great time. I had a marvelous filet mignon. But I was a little disappointed that a favorite salad on the lunch menu was not available at dinner. I would go again in time.

This restaurant is situated in an upscale shopping area off of a busy highway containing many independent shops and dining establishments. Earl's is larger than most of the other eating places with several dining areas including the bar. The atmosphere is early American with wood and stone features throughout. When the four of us arrived for a midday lunch the table we were offered was in one of the larger dining rooms that was spacious and filled with natural light. We have always enjoyed our past visits, so were surprised to see so few patrons here midweek. The host, who was also our waiter and bartender, was friendly yet professional throughout our stay. The menu he provided was comprehensive yet manageable. The cup of corn chowder was excellent, creamy and not starchy. Two of us ordered a turkey pannini and a crab cake sandwich, both constructed with fresh ingredients and very flavorful. The two salads contained some interesting components without being overly complex, the exception was the chicken that was added at our request was dry and chewy. When we brought this issue to the attention of our waiter he readily removed the extra charge from our tab. The prices are commensurate with the area and the quality of the fare. We must have liked it because we were there for two and a half hours!

This restaurant specializes in American cuisine. They have a liquor license. We arrived at 5:45 pm for a 6 pm reservation made a day in advance. The receptionist checked us at the desk. Even though the restaurant wasn't busy, the receptionist held us along with another couple until 6 pm. She even rejected another couple who didn't have a reservation just walk in stating they were expecting a large number of people arriving at that time. In fact, only an additional 6 people showed up and still the room was empty. Anyway, as soon as we got seated, the waitress took our order for drinks and poured water in our glasses promptly and explained that there was no Chef's special that night on the menu. She also served a basket of bread with butter.
We ordered Calamari and lobster dumplings as appetizers. The waitress came back and told us they ran out of Lobster Dumplings, so we ordered Fried Tomato Burrata. When she brought the appetizers, she told us the Chef had made a mistake and they had Lobster Dumplings available to order. We said no we are OK with our two appetizers. Both appetizers were great to taste and perfectly seasoned and prepared.
We had ordered Scallops and 15 hours cooked Short Ribs as our main course. The scallops were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The Short Ribs was delicious and very very tender and tasty.
We finished dinner with a scoop of Salted Caramel ice cream and a coconut cake. Both desserts were very delicious. The scoop of ice cream was really very small. Overall, the food and the service were very good and I highly recommend this restaurant.

I made a reservation for 7:30 and even with Peddlers Village being extremely busy we were seated on time. The food was excellent (get the pork chop), he ambiance is of an up-scale farm house - fits Bucks County and the service was stellar.

My Fiance and I dined here for a date night on a Saturday evening. Thankfully we reserved a table as the restaurant was turning away walk ins at the door. We loved the food and atmosphere. Having been to higher end steakhouses, Earl's gave off that feel but didn't attack our wallets either, was a great night with great food. We will certainly be back!
