                                Small limited menu, but everything was superb! This restaurant is truly their farm to table. The ambiance in the winter is so cozy by the fireplace.

                                An automatic 18% gratuity is added to ALL checks, regardless of the satisfaction of the customers or the size of the party.! We were a party of TWO and had that added to our checks, which is not explained anywhere but in small print on the menu, so by the time you are seated and order a drink, you are stuck. Food is good but quite overpriced with very limited options. Would suggest that the Glasbern management take a look at these issues and refresh their menu (to include less heavy, summery options) as well as to update their policies regarding automatic tips. While I am always a generous tipper, I want to decide what our servers will receive. It was also obvious that staffing is inadequate all around, since we had to wait a long time for our food, clearing of the table, and our check at the end. Please hire more staff to assist the dedicated people who work there now.

                                Our dinner was excellent. The atmosphere is beautifully rustic, but modern at the same time. The staff are most accommodating and friendly. Our dinners were excellent and the selection of wines and cocktails complimented our meal. Portions were more than sufficient, but if you're looking for diner-sized meals, that's not what the Glasbern does. No doggie bag required, although our waitress told us we could do so, if we wanted. We enjoyed the meal, so no take-home required. We will be going back, for sure.

                                Beautiful location, underwhelming food. The prices and presentation suggest a first rate experience. Unfortunately the actual flavor leaves much to be desired. The ingredients were good but the kitchen did not do them justice.

                                Lovely rustic ambience and super friendly staff does not make up for under seasoned, overcooked and overpriced entrees. Salads were great as waa dessert. Got the filet two nights in a row, each time asked for medium rare and came out medium well, and well. Wide had the meatloaf and salmon which were fine after adding salt and pepper... (nice crisp in the salmon).

                                Went for our 24th Anniversary. The grounds are beautiful and the buildings are awesome. The food was kinda disappointing. Our salads were goodl. My husband’s meatloaf was great. I ordered the filet rare. It was medium well. Asked for another. Our server said the kitchen staff was changing shifts and wondered if it was cooked ok. Then why send it out? I ate the mashed potatoes (which needed salt) and the asparagus (which was really over salted and peppered) while I waited for my filet. When it finally showed up my husband was done eating and it was medium. Rare should be easy... cooked the least amount of time. Desert was good. Ordered the Glasbern coffee and it was too sweet to drink. So for around $250 it kinda fell short.

                                Took my wife here for Valentine’s Day and it was awesome. Great views and ambience made better by the fireplace. Hard to believe we’ve lived in this area 12 years and finally got around to trying this place out. A bit pricey, but I highly recommend for a casual albeit fine dining experience.

                                For the price point, we expect more meticulous and professional service and more unique and special food choices. The positive is the atmosphere. We have dined here in the past when everything was exceptional. Unfortunately, it is just not the same so the evening was a bit of a disappointment.

                                Delicious food! The Salmon I had was perfectly prepared. It was seared to a nice crispness on the outside but was moist, flaky and well-seasoned inside. My husbands chicken was also moist and tasty. Salads were wonderful. I had a beet and pear salad that was delicious. Desserts were marvelous too. The service was timely but not rushed.

                                I travel 130 nights a year and use Open Table to find local restaurants and avoid chains. I was encouraged by the pics and description of a farm to table dining option. The menu seemed limited. I found out later there was a prie fix menu I was never offered. Although the room was less than 1/3 full I waited over 45 mins for a filet that was over cooked while the whole meal was barely warm. To add insult to injury they added 18% gratuity to the bill tho this was not stated on the menu or in the open table listing. I would have tipped my server any way. The problem was with management and a poorly run kitchen. Will not return!

                                I hadn’t been to Glasbern in about 20 years. My family used to go often for special occasion dinners, but somehow we got away from it. So, I decided to book a reservation for my husband’s and my wedding anniversary. The grounds were lovely, the ambiance just as romantic as I remembered, and the food was superb. Meesha was our waitress and could have been sweeter, or more attentive. We will most certainly be back.

                                We went to the Glasbern Inn for an early dinner on Mother's Day. We had a pleasant meal during our first visit several years ago but this trip was a big disappointment. The restaurant has a very pleasant main dining room with a fireplace and a high timbered ceiling but despite what appeared to be available tables, we were seated in a secondary room off the rear of the main. Perhaps they had reservations for the tables that were unoccupied in the main room but there were still open tables out there as we were leaving so that point is questionable. And speaking of Mother's Day, we were completely surprised with a limited 4 course dinner menu at a fixed price of $75 per person, plus an extra $10 if you wanted prime rib as an entree. Overall, the food was "OK," but nobody in our party had their socks knocked off by anything. The kitchen would have been better off doing three courses of higher quality food at a lower price. Service average, ambiance nothing - the only view we had was out the window. With our extras for beef, beverages and an 18% restaurant added gratuity, our bill was $435! Now that knocked our socks off! Won't be going back; If I want to pay over $100 per person of dinner, I'll drive into Philadelphia.

                                My husband and I went there for our anniversary. We were seated at a table next to fire place. It was absolutely beautiful and the food was amazing. Definitely recommend.
