Vickers Restaurant is the transformed home of famed abolitionist and Chester County potter, John Vickers. Nestled in his original 1820s farmhouse, Vickers is an institution in Chester County known for its authentic vintage cuisine. Vickers Restaurant opened in 1972 and is still one of the only restaurants in the country celebrating these traditional dishes that epitomize luxury and continental glamor. Come in to experience the timeless panache of flambeed Bananas Foster, Steak Diane and Caesar Salad prepared tableside as well as a variety of entrees & appetizers. For something lighter the casual bar menu that includes Kobe Sliders, spinach and artichoke fondue & seared scallops is perfect for a weeknight bite. Outdoor patio opened in the Spring/Summer. Private dining rooms available for 10-135. Corporate menus available. Fireplaces for romantic dinners. Full Bar & wine list available.

    Vickers is closing after more than 50 years. It is a special restaurant for special occasions and will be missed.

    Amazing, as expected. Quaint, beautiful farmhouse, cozy fireplace, wonderful ambience to complement the outstanding menu and cocktails. I have a hard time not choosing the escargot when I am here; it's prepared wonderfully. Beef Wellington was the main entree, also prepared exactly as ordered. So disappointed to hear that this wonderful restaurant will be soon closing. You will be missed!

    It was just as good as ever. Upon arrival the hostess was very pleasant and had our table waiting. Service was excellent; Kevin didn’t rush us, gave us plenty of time to enjoy cocktails and between each course without hovering. We both ordered the tempura lobster as an appetizer. It was presented nicely, although to my liking the chili sauce could be toned down just a bit. Both of us agree the Dover Sole is the best anywhere. Filleted table side, accompaniments of baby carrots, fresh green beans and pan seared potatoes. While the meunière sauce was a finishing touch but yet not to overpower the delicate sole. I declined dessert, my guest ordered the Apple strudel. She neglected to mention her allergies to strawberries while the presentation had a drizzle of berry sauce. It was immediately removed only to be returned as a fresh plate. They couldn’t have been more accommodating to make the evening most enjoyable. It’s so sad to see this restaurant and an era of fine dining disappear.

    This is a beautiful restaurant in a romantic setting evocative of a colonial inn. It is also well-situated in Exton (Lionsville), with ample, easy parking. The various dining rooms are charmingly appointed and the music on weekends is a plus (some guests even sang along, a nice addition). But that is where the positives stop: the service---while appropriate---was perfunctory and less than friendly; the food was good but not exceptional or even "very" good (the exception being the excellent and way over-priced deserts); the prices exorbitantly ridiculous. Save your money (even if you have enough to throw away) and go to a place where they show respect for their clients---who make for their livelihood, after all---and go to many other fine dining options in the area and the Main Line where both you and your money are valued and respected. I was planning on taking my son to Vickers for his mid-year graduate school graduation: we will be heading to Capital Grille instead.
