Choosing the Riegelsville Inn was a happenstance. We were in Easton, PA with reservations in hand and decided after seeing the restaurant we chosen to seek out something different. So glad we did and thanks to Google Maps.
From the reception at the host stand, to being seated and promptly waited on, the experience was extremely pleasant. The Inn, certainly rich in history, offered a few choices for dining areas. We chose the front dining room at one of the windows where we could observe the water, traffic and foot traffic headed to the canal walkway.
Our first course was a shrimp appetizer with a bottle of Moscato. That was followed with brunch menu selections which were pleasantly presented and excellent.
A fortunate find for us and one that we intend to visit again.

Valentine's day was an adventure. They were behind in reservations so we had to wait. The wait staff had way too many tables and could not keep up and the kitchen was slow. Our reservation was late and they ran out of Filet, which was disappointing. Overall the food wasn't good enough. Final thought, atmosphere is nice, but when there is alternative music pumping out of the speakers on Valentine's day, it kind of takes away from it. Probably will not be back.

Food was great as usual- but the reservations app and management of the reservations timing and kitchen capacity wasn’t properly set up as it took more than 2 hours to get served our meal. When it finally arrived, food was great - great Chef, great cooks, not so good at reservation management....

We usually love our time here, this time the wait to be served was long, food was cold, lightbulbs were burnt out... just a general feel of lack of care or concern. Hard to be so disappointed by one of our favorites.

Been here a few times the past couple years, and started having our anniversary dinner here. The service and food is always great, and the age and character of the building make the experience even better. Tonight out server “Cunningham” was great from the moment we walked though the door! He sat us right next to the fireplace in the dining room, which was pretty cool. We will definitely have many more meals here in the future:)

I love sitting in front of the roaring fireplace. So far I have tried two different soups and they have been excellent. I didn't care for my chicken dish and it was my fault since I should have noticed the cream in the sauce. My husband loved his steak. We wll be back.

Service was a little slow considering we were the only table in the dining room but I suppose that based on the volume in the pub it was busy over there. Food was very good as always. Server was attentive and friendly.

We ate in the Tavern; very cozy and welcoming. Warmth from the fireplace. Building dates to the 1800’s.
Food was great - we ordered from the bar menu. Onion soup and chicken pot pie were outstanding. Friendly staff.
We live about 85 miles away and will be going back.

AS ALWAYS- food, service, ambience OFF THE HOOK!! our only complaint Saturday night- it was chilly in the dining room- we could have sat in the Tavern area near a roaring fire, or in the back dining room, by a roaring fire, but we stubbormly decided to sit at our regular table, with a view of the Riegelsville Bridge. Our bad. WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!

My wife and I went to the Inn for lunch on a Saturday. It was outstanding. The food was spectacular but also different. The Mac and cheese with crab was to die for. The crab cakes were the same. The pot pies blended comfort with zest. The atmosphere was incredibly comfortable. A 10 all around.

A weekday lunch on a cold rainy fall bike ride. We went in wet gear and all hoping maybe for hot chili.

No chili, but they had delicious french onion soup and duck cassoulet pot pie. A very nice upgrade!

Sampled a bit from the bar also. Definitely worth a return visit, when we're drier.

We were a party of seven and were given the choice to dine in/outdoors. We chose the outdoor balcony for our brunch spot. It was lovely! The food was very good as were the drinks. Out waiter was outstanding. We'll definitely be back.

Such a lovely setting. The stone walls, upstairs porch and Delaware River makes it so romantic, BUT the service was so slow, over 1 hour to receive our mea. from when we ordered. It was only a steak and a wrap.
The waiter Evan walked by our table many times and didn't even look at us. We placed our cocktail glasses at the edge of the table for refills and he never noticed. We received freshened water only once, about 1 1/2 hours into dinner. I think they were short handed and need more training. The server did mention it was a new chef and a new menu. We actually went there for a special item which was displayed on their website. They need to update that menu to reflect the new menu.
I need like the quiet of the upstairs porch. We may go back to the bar for the live music and drinks sometime.

How can you rate a restaurant by stars when the food was very good but the service was HORRIBLE? So I rated it good , not excellent! That was because the entrees (when they finally came out after over an hour plus waiting) were very tasty! After we had been waiting for about 45/50 minutes someone FINALLY did come over to offer us dessert even though we had not gotten past our salads....they said that another table's order had been taken in front of ours by mistake! That table must have been 6 or 8 people because we had such a long agonizing wait in front of us until our entrees finally arrived.
We had taken a nice ride to get to this restaurant and ordered almost right away (at about 615pm) and just had a short wait for our salads, which were very good, BUUUUT who knew we would have such a wait, and the strange thing is that only one person finally came to tell us about the problem! That part is NOT acceptable and if I were the manager or owner I would do whatever I could to keep the patron happy….offer a drink or an appetizer or something instead of dessert (LATER) when that was the last thing we wanted. We ALMOST did get up and leave but about 1 ½ hours later the food was presented. Either there is a problem in the kitchen with help, or there is a problem with servers (or both) but my husband and I could never return to this place. SORRY!

We biked 10 miles down the tow path specifically to have brunch here. The experience was fanatic. Three salads and one traditional breakfast were delicious. Peach and burratto salad was excellent. Tasty, fresh and scrumptious. Topped with scallops, the dish was hard to beat. Speaking of beets, two folks had the beet salad with salmon and chicken. Also lovely.

The famous Bloody Mary was good, with a nice selection of veggies added and a lovely piece of shrimp. I found that the taste sat on the back of the tongue which leaves room for more complexity. Mimosas were delicious.

Lastly, we sat outside along the same tow path that we bikes on. The view was wonderful. Also, service was fast and friendly.
