food was good however the service was poor. A table next to us had about ten people and our waitress did not take one persons order. Another person at that table had to get the managment to get the waitress. The service at our table had the same lack of attention.

The coconut shrimp, lobster bisque, salmon over "the best salad", and crab cake were all excellent and nicely presented. Likely a new favorite place for special occasions.

The Sunday Brunch at the Kimberton Inn is very special. It offers a variety of excellent dishes and an amazing Hazelnut Chocolate dessert. We had smoked salmon and eggs Benedict and of course, a delicious Mimosa. All wonderful! The staff was very attentive and efficient.

We celebrated my wife's birthday with two sumptuous meals starting with the best salad ever and a delicious shrimp cocktail followed by swordfish steaks for the both us which turned out to be the best we've ever tasted! The special dessert was amazing. The Kimberton Inn is the place to dine when celebrating any occasion in life! Thank you all for a very fine dining experience!

Just moved to the area and went for the first time to celebrate a birthday. Amazing atmosphere with fireplaces roaring. Very romantic setting in a 200+ year old inn. The food was great and service was outstanding. It is our new favorite place to go.

This restaurant is a very pleasant dining experience. We had a wedding reception here 22 years ago and the food and service is as good or better now than then. Very professional ownership and staff. Give yourself a treat and go eat here.

We had our Thanksgiving day luncheon here again this year. The food here is always great, and this year’s Thanksgiving Day meal was outstanding. This is the finest fine dining restaurant in the area. I recommend this place to all that will listen to me. Jeff and his team continue to execute well every time we attend.

We enjoyed our meal and the food was good. The service was very good in the beginning of our meal, but we waited over 30 minutes for our dessert. Also, one of the men in the group had to get up and find the waiter to ask about his drink (he had been waiting over 20 minutes for it). The restaurant is beautiful and we will come back again.

The Kimberton Inn ceases to amaze me each time we go. The table we had was set so we could see the fire roaring in the fireplace and also see into the next room elegantly decorated for the holidays. We had a wonderful meal starting off with the special salad with blue cheese , apples organic greens, walnuts etc. the main course was the sirloin scallopini with deliciously mashed potatos and mushrooms on top with a sauce reduction. So good and tender
Pecan pie and the chocolate torte were both excellent
The service was excellent.

Birthday , service was spotty, food was okay, not fantastic, like the last time we were there. Specifically my fish with soggy and slightly overcooked I wouldn't say where's the freshest either. The chicken dish was glacé was way too heavy. And everything appeared to be over salted.

The food is always nicely prepared and presented in an aesthetically pleasing way. We like the Sunday Brunch menu in particular and use Kimberton Inn as one of our "family" event restaurants to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries with extended family. The pace of the meal is never rushed. You have the time to savor and enjoy your food and company. The staff is pleasant and trained in the etiquette of serving in a fine dining establishment. They were extremely helpful in assisting my elderly parents in through a side door to avoid the numerous steps in their main entrance. The only detraction was that the noise did bounce around quite a bit where we were seated and it was difficult at times for to make conversation around the table. I have eaten there several other times and noise was never an issue before, so I think it was more the placement of our table on this visit. We will return and have recommended this restaurant to many of our friends.

This was yet another wonderful visit to Kimberton Inn, as its always a welcoming experience when we arrive & the cuisine is delicious until the last bite. The staff is very courteous & attentive. Comfortable atmosphere among each of the peaceful spaces there are to dine, with some having a cozy fireplace. You'll be greeted & recognized the next time, by the huge smiles you'll have when you depart such a terrific time.

Went for our 1 year anniversary, which was extra cool since it was where me and my wife got married. We didn't announce it, but they remembered and gave us dessert with 1 candle on it. Very personable staff with great food, and seriously amazing house cocktails, it has a rustic feel. A place you won't mind spending a few hours at! Some of the best service I ever encountered.

Kimberton Inn is a classic gem and never disappoints. Food is excellent as is the wine list. We prefer sitting in the bar area for the ambiance and jazz piano music. Owner Jeff E. is amazing and insures all details are perfect. Chef will alter recipes as needed to accommodate special diet (for example, I don't eat dairy). Don't pass up "Probably the best salad you will ever eat" as it is truly that. And make sure to save room for dessert!

Wonderful atmosphere and impeccable service. Food was very good and plated beautifully. My husband had the filet which was served with potato and nice vegetables, nice size portion and cooked to perfection. I had the grilled salmon which was excellent but served with three overcooked hush puppies and a teaspoon of slaw...I felt it was overpriced for a very small portion of "extras". Hummingbird cake was hands down the best but the blueberry crisp was watery with soggy "crisp". Overall we enjoyed our visit.
