About

McCoole's Red Lion Inn is a historic restaurant found right on the corner of Main Street in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. The dark wood, antique decor and stone walls maintain the traditional atmosphere of the inn. In each of the two dining rooms there is a bar and a fireplace. McCoole's Red Lion Inn is conveniently located next the theater making it a great spot for dinner before or after a show.

One of McCoole's own micro brews from the Red Lion Brewery is the perfect start to any meal there. The dishes offered on the menu are all created with locally grown ingredients and are antibiotic and hormone free. Meals include such as options as Scottish salmon, slow roasted pork shank and the signature McCoole's marinated beef tenderloin grill.

This was one of our favorite restaurants up to a few months ago. The menu has changed and it does not have the value or diversity of the previous one. It is very disappointing. Parts of our meal (baked potato, pasta) arrived lukewarm. This had never happened before. The new menu does not include salad or soup with full entrees, nor are two sides offered, and all menu prices have seemed to significantly increased.

Is McCool's under new (worse) management? If their aim is to chase away loyal patrons, they have succeeded!

We went here with friends for the first time for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and the portions were big. I would recommend the Main St Scampi & the Bruschetta Chicken. They were excellent. They also have some Gluten free options on the menu. One person in our party has to follow a GF diet and order the GF pasta and said it was really good. We would definitely recommend this place.

I have been there many times but was less than satisfied this time. Our server was great and the food was only average. I don't like the new menu at all. It was copied on paper that looked like the ink was running out on the copier. I didn't like the set up of the menu or the lack of choices that were there previously. I didn't like that I was given no choice of sides with my entree - rice and the veg of the day and that was it. I wasn't able to use a coupon on a Friday night that I was previously able to use. Overall, I was disappointed and not sure that I will return anytime soon.

We celebrated our friends special birthday lunch and our server made every part of our luncheon so special and gave us the time to talk for hours and help to make us so comfortable. Just a great time. Would highly recommend McCoole's!

Great building with a lot of character. What disappointed me was I had ordered one I their own brews and noticed I was waiting a while. About 10 minutes later the waiter caught site I was still waiting (as he was probably busy) and when he went to retrieve my beer, they needed a new keg. Then I waited even longer...eventually I ordered a bottled beer.
Food presentation was really good. I ordered Spinach & Bruchetta but when I tasted the pasta, it was well over cooked...way too soft. Too bad because I was really looking forward to it.
It may have just been the night I selected but it was a bit disappointing. I may give another shot while on business in the future but there are other options out there. I'll look around a bit first.

I used to love this place. But since they got the new menu the food is different. The cheesecake especially was always a highlight, but this time it was so small and lacked flavor. The previous homemade cheesecake was by far better!!

Over paid for quality of food served, soup of the day as and everyday soup were even the same. The steak my son ordered was fatty and thin - not near worth what we paid for. My husbands dinner was not exactly what was described, he got seafood combo expecting a crab cake but got crab stuffing instead.

Great food--I got the salmon which is always a good choice. My husband got the steak which he said was the best he has had in a long time.

Three of us had dinner at McCoole's on a Saturday evening. Soups were terrific (beef barley and Manhattan clam chowder). We also shared fried mozzarella - yummy. This was not our first time at McCoole's. We are from Maryland and were visiting family in the area. We decided on McCoole's because we enjoyed their meatloaf on a previous occasion. It was "lick-the-plate" good. Well, they've changed the menu and now feature more game. On this visit, one of us had beef tenderloin (it was a generous portion, cooked exactly the way she likes it), and the other two had fish and chips. Fish and chips were OK...not the best we've ever had, but good. Only one had dessert...a peanut butter bomb. She raved over it. There is an extensive menu with a wide range of prices to please everyone. We'll be back, but we sure wish they still had meat loaf on the menu.
