Based on other online reviews I was a bit disappointed in the food quality. For example, the crab cake had much more filler than expected, given the price point and prior reviews. Another in our party had the General Tso taco’s- they were lukewarm.

The atmosphere was nice and service was great but disappointed in the food. As someone who rarely if ever writes restaurant reviews, I had higher expectations and feel compelled to share.

Duck breast was dry. Service could have been a little better, but I gather they are short staffed with COVID.

Outdoor dining was chic and quiet. Everyone was pleasant. Appetizers were nice.

We were seated upstairs near a window; the atmosphere was nice considering the ongoing pandemic precautions. I would have given the food an outstanding, except our entrees were not hot--just tepid. All the food was tasty and the presentation perfect. The wait staff and management was thoughtful, professional and they attended to our every need.

The service was wonderful and very professional and attentive. Due to Covid, we sat "outside" on the porch which was covered with a tent. It was very nice inside even though being in a tent. They have great 'special' cocktails, and the rest of the bar is very nicely stocked. Our dinner was excellent and the food was abundant.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice evening out.

It’s hard to compare COVID era dining with earlier times, but every thing possible is being done at Kimberton to make tented late winter dining as atmospheric, comfortable, and well ventilated as can be. Tables are candle lit and well spaced. There is even live music piped from inside some nights. The food and service are classic Kimberton. It is our to-go spot during these mostly stay-at-home times.

Some parts of the meal the food was outstanding, others were good. Service was good but not outstanding, even though with a limited dining customers we seemed to be forgotten about while the table next to us obviously was a regular and doted on. Overall a good dining experience, but for the cost I would expect an outstanding experience throughout the entire meal.

My daughter and I had a date night under the tent. It was such a pleasurable experience. The heater at our table made it feel like we were seated next to a fire place. It was so warm and cozy. The food is always great and so is the service. I love the Kimberton Inn.

Excellent fare. Crab Cake, Leg of Lamb, fillet Mignon, Lobster Bisque outstanding. Service was attentive but not invasive.

During the pandemic, there were only six tables in a heated tent on the patio, so it was a fortunate reservation we were able to make.

The owner takes pride in his restaurant and his highly trained staff. He came around to the tables and spoke with us in a friendly manner. I highly recommend this restaurant!

It is the middle of February but too cold, sitting on cold metal chairs, food got cold quickly, feet were freezing, we took extra blankets and still too cold. Service was lukewarm. Not many people to serve but servers have to walk so far to the patio to deliver the service was slow. Seemed understaffed. Food is good.
