We always dine here when we come to Lancaster. The staff is very personable and remembers us. The ambiance is great...best table is by the fireplace in the smaller dining room or in the lounge by the candlelite window

We like the Revere Inn, and it was warm and comforting as usual, and perfect for a date night. However, I was a tad disappointed in my lamb chops this time for a couple reasons. The menu advertises four lamb chops for $34.95. Lamb chops are expensive, so you expect to get what is advertised. So when my plate came out there were only three lamb chops, and actually, I only counted it as two because there were two bones sticking out of one little piece of meat so I guess they counted that as two lamb chops but it was really only one lamb chop. When the waitress came back, I told her I wanted another lamb chop since there were only three on my plate, and they did cook me another nice lamb chop. But the point is, when the customer is spending almost $10 a piece for lamb chops, make sure she gets nice lamb chops. Other than that, it was a wonderful evening.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times in the past year. On previous occasions, the food and presentation were outstanding. On this visit, the food was poor to just OK. Upon inquiry, we learned that they had recently changed chefs. They comped one of our meals, but it didn't really compensate for the disappointing experience.

we always look forward to the romantic setting and good food. The waitress and bartender both remembered us from a year ago. The service is very friendly. We will be back for new years eve. We made our reservations through their website (we usually call) but we got the exact table we wanted...which was one night near the fireplace in the smaller dining room and the other night in the lounge (Table near window or near the kitchen both are great)

We had a friend in town and wanted to take him some place special. We had been to the Revere Tavern on several previous occasions and enjoyed it very much, but this particular visit was very disappointing. Our orders were taken promptly. The soup (a shrimp crab corn chowder) was delicious, and the salads were fine. But after salads, the drinks had been drained, and it quickly became evident things were off on this night. Our server was very nice, but even walking by several times to attend other tables and guests, our empty plates and bowls weren't cleared and 45 minutes passed before she asked if we wanted any more drinks. Second round of drinks were eventually brought out, but she left once again not having cleared the table, now notably cluttered with empty glasses, salad and appetizer plates, and soup bowls. The entrees arrived over an hour and a half after we arrived. My wife's meal was fine, but my friend and I both ordered the filet mignon (mine medium rare and his medium well). Both were overcooked and cold. Hungry as we were, we notified the server, who apologized and took them back. It was another 25 minutes before the entrees came back, my wife had long since finished her meal, and mine was still cooked medium well instead of medium rare, but I was far too hungry to send it back again. Eventually, a different server finally cleared most of our table. Our server eventually returned and said the manager wanted to comp our desserts for the trouble, and truthfully, we would've passed on dessert altogether had they not been comped. The desserts were okay, fortunately free, but did nothing to rescue the evening.

We're not writing the place off after one bad experience, but we also can't exactly offer any high recommendations after this experience.

The service was very good but the steaks were less than stellar. All three of us had steaks more well-done than ordered. The crab cakes were good, but under the broiler just a little too long.

It is a gem in the heart of Lancaster County, beautiful building fireplaces. The food was delicious, I had 2 crab cakes full of whole crabmeat my friend had a sirloin steak done to perfection, the wait staff were friendly but not overbearing. The meal was very relaxing we were not rushed at all. I give it 4 stars

My husband were visiting PA and saw that this restaurant was close to where we were staying. My husband had the petite filet and crab cake and I had the stuffed shrimp. We both enjoyed our meals very much. Our waitress was friendly and very attentive. This was a very cozy, quiet restaurant that we will gladly visit again when we are in the area again.

Nice restaurant for this area especially if you want to skip the buffets. They have a kids menu though a wouldn't bring very rambunctious kids because most people are there on dates. Food was good -mushroom ravioli and tenderloin tips (very rich, they forgot the vegetable)- but the service was lacking. Our waitress seemed totally overwhelmed. The drinks, even soft drinks, were very slow to come out. My mother waited 20 mins for seltzer. We never got a bread basket. I think there is something off in the way they staff.

This is the first time in many years that I was not happy with the food here. We had the veal parm and it was over cooked and the cheese was burnt on top. The stuffed shrimp was rubbery and difficult to chew. The service was quick and the waitress was attentive. I am hoping this was a "off night" for the chef, since I have always raved about this place.

The ambiance of the tavern was great and the service was good.
I was very disappointed in the quality of the rolls, there should have been more options. The salad was obviously premade and therefore not fresh.
The mushroom ravioli was not very appetizing. There was a bitter taste to the sauce.

Very interesting, very rich in history. I was expecting an informal historic pub/tavern. While there is a very active bar, the main dining room had a more formal feel. Very pretty, VERY historic. The short history on the menu was really fascinating. Steaks were excellent; mushroom ravioli exceptional. Large portions.

I would return.

Had not visited Lancaster for a few years and was eager to dine at one of my favorite area restaurants. The experience was far from satisfactory. At times we felt that our waitress had literally disappeared. We returned our cocktails because they were so poorly made. The Caesar dressing was so bitter that it ruined the salad. On a positive note, the lamb chops were cooked to taste and delicious. The parfait sundae excellent! The decor appropriate for this historic locale.
