Delicious food in a comfortable and historic atmosphere. The village of Berlinsville was once known as Lehighville. The name was changed to Berlinsville in honor of Abraham Berlin III. One the landmarks, the Berlinsville Hotel was once a stagecoach stop, a farmhouse and a doctor's office. It was built in 1761 and is still in use today as a restaurant and tavern. A large rock on property west of Berlinsville, known as Apps, (near Poplar Dr. and Hickory Rd.) is known as Council Rock which was used by Native Americans for meetings and ceremonial purposes.

The food and drink selection is spot on. Sandwiches are beyond expectation in flavor and quantity and best of all the pricing is fair and reasonable. Hard surfaces make it sometimes hard to converse. Overall the Berlinsville H is am enjoyable and tasty experience.

This was our first time here. Stopped in for lunch. We were really impressed. It's a beautifully decorated old inn. The menu is full of comfort food & drinks. My husband loved the French onion soup.
His cheesesteak was huge & juicy. He enjoyed the tasty fries that came with it. I had a BLT which was full of crisp bacon, fresh iceberg, & a thick slice of ripe tomato. My sides were pierogies (homemade?)sauteed in butter & onions plus a large portion of housemade potato chips. YUM! We definitely will be back!!

Table off balance... annoying
Waited 10 minutes at table before acknowledged by a waitress .
Had to ask for utensils after meal arrived.
Offered no glass with bottled beer
Loud upstairs
Overcharge error on bill, but corrected when we mentioned it.
Although all this happened the food was very good and therefore would recommend.... but will mention the negatives.

I was looking forward to visiting Berlinsville Hotel. It started out well, but then the wait for our food was very long. In fact, I saw three ladies served their food and leave before we received our food. We had ordered sandwiches, nothing fancy. At the very least the waitress should have informed us about a possible long delay. What a shame that not communicating the facts about the slow service whatever they may have been, resulted in much disappointment for me.

It was very loud in the upstairs dining room because of a large party that was there. We were with friends we haven't seen in a long time and it was very hard to have a conversation. The food and service were great though!

Great place to eat with friends as it’s not a romantic atmosphere. Rustic farm house type with burgers , some entrees, appetizers and great desserts. Love their cupcakes. Greatly portioned with excellent taste and very moist. Fare is also very reasonable and less than $30.

I dined at Berlinsville with friends that I hadn't seen for months. We spent time at the table after we were finished eating. The servers never made us feel rushed to leave: and as there were empty tables in the room, we stayed for a bit. I was very appreciative of this, and we will definitely be back.

They did not have our reservation even though I had the email. But they fit us in. The noise was so loud , we couldn't hear ourselves talk. It was not what we expected. I thought they would feature goulash or something ethnic.

We frequent Berlinsville Hotel as it is close to home yet has top quality food, pricing, and service. Everything is always up-to-par, has not disappointed us yet, and is very clean! Brandon is the best waiter! Whether it is take out, two of us, or a mini bridal shower of 6, we are always very happy!

Great food at great prices; Parking lot is way too small; When it’s busy, the dining room is very stuffy and there are a lot of tables in a small space; Food is always good; However, they are ALWAYS understaffed and the waitress named Stephanie is very rude when she’s busy.

My wife and I were seated upstairs, Brandon ( I not sure if that is his name) was great, very personable and never forgot that we were sitting there.
I had a sirloin steak and it was the best steak I had eating out in a long time, my wife had the fried shrimp platter and she enjoyed it.

Thanks for a great dinner and keep up the good work.
