Historic Revere Tavern
Our History: Dating back to 1740, this stone building, formerly called the "Sign of the Spread Eagle", was a "Stage Tavern". It was one of the better inns along the 62 miles of turnpike stretching from Philadelphia to Lancaster, and catered to the more prosperous class of travelers, providing him with accommodations suited to his means. Fine liquors and fine foods were served in generous portions to satisfy the hearty appetites generated by a long day in a rocking, jolting stagecoach. We continue that tradition!
Through the generations, the Revere Tavern has preserved this tradition of quality and abundance. Our family, the Cosgroves, have owned the property for over 55 years and we thank you for your business!

It was a wonderful dinner experience
We ate dinner at the Revere Tavern after a show. It was the perfect night....ambience next to the fireplace, quiet atmosphere, great service and great food!
This is a really quaint place. We were fortunate to be seated in front of the fireplace. The drinks were great and the food was great. The party of 5 of us were full and happy when we left. Our water was never empty and dirty dishes didn’t sit long on the table. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in the are.
I have dined at the Revere Tavern several times and the ambiance never fails to impress me. The food was very good but I was disappointed that the filet mignon was not on the menu, so I opted for the beef burgundy tenderloin tips instead, and although they were very tasty, some were a little too chewy for my taste. Please bring back the filet! Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
making the reservation the day before was easy We were on the way home from visiting a museum in Harrisburg, it only took an hour to get there. The table was ready and we were served drinks right away. The food was amazing. When we finished we grabbed seats at the Bar to watch the last quarter of the Army Navy game. Everyone was friendly and attentive. Looking forward to going back and trying something different on the menu.
It had been a few years since we were at The Revere. The hostess was very friendly. The waitress (sorry I did not get her name) was friendly and very efficient. The opening cocktails were well mixed and well thought out. My wife had the beef short rib shepherd's pie which she really enjoyed. I had the crab cakes which were very disappointing; I've had better crab cakes in diners around Lancaster County. The baked potato was tepid and the green beans were bland. For the quality and the final price you would be better off dining at The Fireside in nearby Strassburg.
We arrived 15 minutes early and we’re still taken right to our table. We got the fried mozzarella patties, very good. The courses of the meal came at a very relaxed time. There was no rushing. The salad was simple and good. The entrees were very good. The atmosphere Was excellent. Strongly recommend
Great server and good food.
Very nice venue with a fireplace. Great service. Food was OK.
Outstanding evening. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Server not very friendly, food mildly warm , French onion soup warm not even close to hot
Fabulous food and a selection thereof. The chef never disappoints. We specifically asked to be seated in the old section with our favorite waitress in Lancaster County, Bonnie Walsh, who is always engaging and fun to be with. We will see Bonnie and the Revere many times in the future.
Great evening for a birthday celebration with good friends.
We had a very condescending waitress that treats us horribly. She said it’s because they were understa
We moved our original arrival time up by 15 minutes. We were seated immediately. Waitress arrived in a timely manner. Orders taken and all food received in a timely manner also. Food was great. We did not order desert as we couldn't finish our dinners. However, it was a special night - our 50th anniversary. So waitress brought a delicious cupcake w/a candle and a card from the staff with a congratulatory note. It was a lovely evening.
We love the Historic Revere Tavern because the food is always excellent, the service is exceptional, the atmosphere is warm and cozy especially during the cold months and the fireplace is in use. It seems it’s extremely hard to find restaurants anymore that aren’t noisy and you can have a quiet meal without hearing every conversation from the other tables in the room. We travel out of the area to have dinner here. Highly recommend. And you can reserve a table on the Open Table App which is convenient.
Had the snapper soup (yum). Prime rib was perfect.
It was our first time there and we had a great experience! The food was fantastic but the portions too generous so we had no room for dessert!
We always enjoy going to the Revere Tavern. It is nice to stay at the Best Western Revere Inn and be able to walk to the restaurant. It is cozy, and even on a crowded night our waitress was attentive and helpful. The food is ample and delicious, and the prices are very competitive. Also, the salted caramel martini was delicious! We highly recommend the Revere Tavern for date night, or any night.
Noise level increased with a full room but not so loud that we couldn’t talk easily. Chicken Chesapeake was excellent and hubby was pleased with his prime rib. Plenty of both for a second meal. Dark of the moon dessert was amazing. Enjoyed the whole meal and experience.
We requested a table near the fireplace and we’re given the table right in front of it so that was very nice on a cold night. The Clams Revere were delicious as was the Caesar salad. The steaks were also very good. There is a nice wine selection with reasonable prices. Would recommend this restaurant.
The service was great. The food was amazing! We will be going back!
Excellent meal and service. Disappointed that the mushroom ravioli was sold out. My wife looks forward to that every year. Her second choice was certainly enjoyable.
Everyone was very friendly and attentive, while letting you enjoy your meal. The atmosphere in the restaurant is awesome; I loved all of the stone details. The food was delicious. (There were 4 of us that had four different dishes and we all enjoyed our meals.)
Strip steaks were warm not hot. Service was good. Prices are not unreasonable.
First time visiting. A friend recommended the restaurant. Very happy with the food and the waitress was excellent. Definitely coming again!
Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary there this weekend. Everything about the evening was absolutely fabulous. Food was delicious, service was outstanding and the Tavern is stunning. Can't wait to go back!
Awesome time great food.
On behalf of our family and our entire staff, thank you for your 5 star review. We look forward to you next visit. Tina
My husband and I eat here every time we're in the area. Always good food and excellent service.
On behalf of our family and our entire staff, thank you for your 5 star review. We look forward to seeing you in the future. Tina
An absolute fabulous night. It was our 27 year anniversary dinner. Our waitress, Bonnie, was absolutely the BEST waitress I have ever had. The food was great. But her attentiveness made the whole dinner experience amazing. I recommend asking for the fireplace seat. If it is a special event, let them know, as they make it more so.
I am glad you had such a wonderful time, I did pass your remarks on to Bonnie as well. It was a pleasure meeting you that night as well, and thank you so much for your kind review. We hope to see you soon.
Loved the food

Not impressed. Overpriced. Quality not great. Cute building. Service ok
Great food, great server.
Thank you for your kind review and 5-star rating. We look forward to your next visit.
First time to this Tavern. Staff was great, food was delicious. First time selecting turtle soup and it lived up to our expectations. Apple Chutney bruschetta was a great choice as an appetizer. Entrees were Diver Scallops, cooked well but only 3 which was a little over priced, NY Strip and crab cake was the other choice and it was cooked to perfection. Brussel sprouts was the veggie and they were good. Overall we would definitely return when we are in the area. Loved the bar area for an after dinner drink.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit. We look forward to seeing you again !
Had a good experience even though staffing was at a minimum. Server was outstanding and everything was served in a timely manner, definitely would recommend.
Thank you for your kind review and 5-star rating. We look forward to your next visit.
The prime rib was the best prime rib we've ever eaten! The portions were large and we had plenty of leftovers for the next day.
Thank you for your 5-star rating! We are so pleased you enjoyed our prime rib. We look forward to your next visit.
First of all, our server Bonnie was probably the best server I have ever had. The food was simply amazing. The menu offers something for everyone. Portion sizes are huge and menu items fair priced for the amount of food served. I highly recommend !
Staff refused to move us to another table. We were cold due to a vent next to the table. Waitress was rude to us the rest of the of the evening because we asked to be moved to a warmer spot. Mushroom ravioli was extra sweet. When we said we did not like it there was no attempt to make it right. They have a sign saying they are short staffed and to be nice but I guess that isn’t meant for the staff.
I am sorry we couldn't move you because we were full to capacity. Mr. Gainey, I thank you for your phone call, and I did talk to your server. I did receive your email and I have your review. We did comp your wife's entire meal, so we did make the situation right. You didn't leave a tip either, so all is well.
The food was fabulous loved the decor .The service was excellent.Our waitress Bonnie couldn't be more pleasant & courteous of service.Excellent place for dinner & the prices were very fair for such an elegant atmosphere.If you are in Lancaster you an not miss eating here.
Thank you so much for your kind review. You both were so wonderful and we are thankful and blessed with such wonderful customers!
