We enjoyed a really lovely meal at the Kimberton Inn. We started with drinks and the scallop soup. For the entree we chose the liver and the lamb chops, both were extremely well cooked and seasoned. It was our first time trying calf liver and we both enjoyed the flavour and textures. Thanks for a wonderful meal.

We dined here for our anniversary and it was superb. This is not your modern, nouveau ,eclectic dining experience, rather, an excellent continental, classic tavern-esque style with high quality fare...top grade meats, game, poultry and fish and fresh, creative ingredients. Theresa, our server, was excellent. Friendly, authentic and very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. She’s worked there for something like 30 years! Everyone we encountered was friendly, relaxed and helpful! The owner spent time with us to offer wine suggestions. We felt pampered and relaxed not to mentioned completely thrilled with what we ordered. (Australian lamb chops and Duck) a good old fashioned hot fudge sundae with homemade fudge sauce was just what we needed to top it all off! Haven’t had that in forever! Take a drive to sleepy Kimbertown and visit this gem!

We are definitely going to be returning with the Kimberton Inn in the near future.

Thank you to all the staff for a great Anniversary dining experience.

Overall......it was a very good experience EXCEPT a party of eight behind us were so boisterous/noisy....it ruined the atmosphere and ambience.....I couldn't hear people, in normal co0nversation, at my own table. I know its a one time thing so we will be back. Do wish, though, that there was a way for staff to have calmed them down without impinging on their good time.

Eating at Kimberton Inn is always excellent. We ate on the enclosed porch, which was lovely. The food was superb, as always. Service was excellent. I can't think of any way it could have been better.

Very pleasant dining rooms. Excellent service - warm, attentive, very professional. Love the weekend piano player. The food is dependably good, but unfortunately it's predictable. The menu needs updating or the standard items, such as filet mignon and lamb chops, would benefit from updating their preparations. Even adding a traditional Bernaise sauce to the filet would make it more interesting.

We'll certainly be back. There is so much about this restaurant that we love, but we'd definitely like to see some "surprises" on the menu.

Drinks very expensive- simple cocktail for me ( $17) and husband’s margarita ( $14). Have to pay for bread basket ( $4.50). Outside dining- waitress spent time talking- at length- to customers who were friends, we had to flag down waitstaff for service. Not impressed at all, will be unlikely to return

We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary here and they acknowledged the celebration during our dessert course, which was thoughtful. We requested a secluded table which was granted. The service was prompt, personal and our glasses were always full. The food was excellent, especially the potato leek soup and lobster bisque. I enjoyed the filet, which was grilled perfectly, while my husband had the Maryland crab cake. The desserts were wonderful-as I have a fine dining background specializing in pastry, I am hard to wow. We are already planning a return trip because our experience was exactly as we hoped it would be. Special thanks to our servers, Sean and Katie and to the entire kitchen crew! You rock.

It is always a pleasure to dine at the Kimberton Inn. The food is incredibly well prepared and plated. The cabbage slaw I had with my crab cake had just the perfect dressing. Wine selections are great! The service probably needs to be rated a 6 on a 5 point scale.
