Kimberton Inn is one of our favorite places to dine. The service is perfect. We often have Rachel as our waitress. She is the best. The cocktails are perfect. The entrees are consistently delicious!

Sunday brunch date as we have not been there since thanksgiving day. Very good brunch with lots of seasonal selections. All items were executed well and we very much enjoyed sitting by the fire! Always a great time at the Kimberton Inn!

We very much enjoyed our experience at the Inn. The menu is more on the traditional side, but very well prepared and delicious. We ordered the duck and frenched chicken breast entrees along with mushroom risotto and scallop appetizers. All were good, if slightly under seasoned/ we understand that can be a conscious choice for the chef to make these days based on clientele preferences. Servers were pleasant and skilled in some niceties that many restaurants miss these days. And the nearby fireplace was lovely on a cold night. We will certainly go again.

As always, fabulous meals! The “world’s best” salad, is just that! I crave it’s deliciousness!
I have to share...I am NOT a big fan of Brussel Sprouts...
BUT, how they are prepared at The Kimberton Inn? Incredible. Truly incredible. Roasted with Balsamic Vinegar and some other magical ingredients...just incredible.
Our wait staff was great! Isabel was sweet and Julia was so funny...it was a wonderful experience, all around...

We always enjoy Kimberton but on
This Wednesday evening it was
Not what we have experienced
In the past.
Seems like they need more help!
We walked in and there was nobody
To take our coats. Everyone was busy
Working the dining room
When we sat down we waited
For approx 20 minutes to
Have someone take our order.
Again everyone was very busy
I had to ask for more water
That has never happened before
When we received our bread
Again it was 30 minutes
And the quantity of bread was
Something you would give 3rd graders
Food was good. Our waitress was nice again
Busy going in many directions
We were asked when making our reservation if it was a special event. We told them a birthday but nobody every mention Ed
It.
Nice evening but also disappointing
In many ways

I haven't been to the Kimberton Inn for a while. It was really, really great. Excellent service, excellent food, reservation and table waiting for us, and everyone was friendly, cordial, but let us alone to dine for as long as we wished. It's great for a date, special occasion, anything really. Just a super place and will definitely return!

Overall experience was satisfactory, however, I do have an issue with the mashed potatoes. They were certainly not "home-made" and were cold when served. Apparently the food was not immediately served when ready. Service people were friendly and efficient.

I've been to the Kimberton inn more times that I can count. Its a great spot for a special night out with friends and/or family. Also a great experience if you can find a spot at the bar. This time I was a little disappointed with portion size of both apps I'm not someone who typically leaves a restaurant hungry, but after a salad, entrée I'm used to that, but I'm not sure the two older women were excited to be seated near us. We weren't loud, but having normal conversation in a quiet dining room. In the future I would ask to be seated in a more private area of the room, to avoid disrupting those eating in silence.

We had not been to the Kimberton Inn in over 20 years. Went to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Nice historic ambiance and multiple wood burning fireplaces going. Service was very good. Nice menu selection mainly "classics". Nice wine and beer selection. Food was well-prepared and good. A great dinner experience.

Lived in Kimberton for 5 years prior to moving to Western Pa. Made the 3.5 hour drive from Johnstown, Pa to celebrate 15 year anaversery with my wife! Casual and classy at the same time! Love the wood burning fireplaces throughout and piano bar for a drink before dinner. Superior service and tasty food/drink make the high prices worth every cent. Did not leave without getting my parents a gift certificate for watching the kids. You will not be disappointed! Can’t wait to come back home soon!
