Previously I would have given a higher rating, but thought everything was average on this visit.


Very disappointed in the dessert, looked and tasted like something from the day old bakery

We found Kimberton Inn to be charming and eclectic in terms of ambiance. However, the value was a bit overpriced as the food portions were small for the amount of money that was charged. We would not return to eat there unless for a very special occasion because the money expended just wasn't worth a basic dinner out (>$175 for only 2 diners)!

Filet mignon not worth the price, but vegetables were delicious. Service declined as the evening went on. Waited a ridiculous amount of time between clearing of our dinner dishes & dessert order taken. Would probably not recommend KI for date night. Most likely will not be returning.

Lovely atmosphere, terrific waitstaff and a varied menu. We were seated upstairs which was perfect since it is a little quieter than parts of the main level. A very enjoyable evening.

Overall excellent, except that my brioche was burnt on one end and clearly visible when served. I cut the burnt end off and left it uneaten and the wait staff did not ask or comment on it.

The ambiance was nice, a very cool building. The food was okay, we expected better food. Both of our steaks were over cooked and half of the meals you had to buy separate sides for. It’s too expensive for the meal that you receive. We will not be returning.

We enjoyed the meal. The dessert was a bit of a disappointment. We ordered pecan pie. It came to the table ice cold. It wouldn't have taken much to heat it up a bit.

Kimberton Inn is a nice place to dine if you are looking for a traditional, historic atmosphere with cozy rooms, a fireplace, and colonial style furniture. The menu has a variety of entrees, and the food portions are satisfying. My family dined at the Kimberton to celebrate a birthday, and we all enjoyed our meals. Service was a bit slow due to a large volume of people dining that evening (which was also a holiday). However, the staff was very friendly and polite. This restaurant is perfect for a family gathering or an elegant dinner date.

Setting was great! Bar atmosphere good too. However, for management and servers to constantly tell you that things are delayed because there was a wedding going on is unsatisfactory. I assume they knew they had booked a wedding and they should have staffed appropriately instead of feeling that telling people you have to wait etc was the appropriate solution. Food did not get prepared the way we asked. It was good but still would have preferred to have it the way we wanted it and not the way the cook did it for whatever reason. I would suggest maybe not going on Saturdays when weddings are usually planned maybe Friday is better.

This is a wonderful quaint classy restaurant. Had an awesome evening tonight here with my boyfriend. It was not crowded as it was a Sunday which was nice and relaxing with no noise. Our table was romantic by a fireplace. We shared a specialty salad and the dressing was so delicious. We both ordered filet mignon which was so tender and tasty and the string beans and mashed potatoes were perfectly cooked.
Been here many times and have never been disappointed. Was here one year for New Year's Eve dinner and even held my son's wedding rehearsal dinner here. Always a great place to go and highly recommend it.

My wife and I love the Kimberton Inn. We’ve been visiting the restaurant for over 20 years now. Our last trip did not disappoint. Even though a wedding party reserved the entire main dining room, we we seated upstairs and the service and food were excellent to spite the big party going on downstairs. Tip: for intimate dining request a table upstairs next to the fire place when making a reservation. What you might not know is you can also have a private party for 20 max in the basement wine cellar. We reserved that area for an intimate graduation party last year.

Our most recent meal consisted of the filet and crab cakes and both were outstanding. My wife had the mushroom risotto as an appetizer and it was great.

I’ve never been disappointed with a meal. Keep in mind that the restaurant is a historical building with low ceilings and old charm. Try it out. You won’t be disappointed.

I knew the ambiance would be great, and the food would be traditional and delicious, but I was pleasantly surprised by the cocktail and wine program. We were able to enjoy a very rare wine for a reasonable price, and the cocktails were on par with top (competing) bartenders in my area. Well done!

The Kimberton Inn is understated perfection in all the best ways! Elegant without being fussy, refined without being pretentious, and perhaps most importantly delicious without being trendy. If you are looking for a special evening with superb, expertly prepared cuisine delivered by a caring and sincere wait staff, don't hesitate to make this one of your new favorite restaurants. It is now one of ours! I need also mention that there's a wonderful bar (so much atmosphere!) and a very impressive wine list. Having lived in France for several years, we were absolutely delighted to find Crément by the glass.

We got a gift certificate for dinner a few months ago. We tried to book around the holidays but had no luck getting a table. We finally booked a reservation and it was worth the wait. The lamb chops and duck were delicious. The table setting and the wood burning fireplaces were elegant. The old bar and wood work is charming. Service was impeccable. There is plenty of free parking. It was a 5 star experience that I would highly recommend.
