 (Philadelphia)·Dined 6 days ago

Six of us enjoyed dinner here recently. The three men had prime rib which looked wonderful and they all said it was excellent. The other entrees were filet mignon, salmon and Mahi Mahi which were also delicious. We even enjoyed various desserts after our meal. We were not rushed and our waiter Jimmy could not have been nicer or more attentive. It was a very pleasurable experience.

I rolled the dice and gave this place a try based on word of mouth from past patrons. I went there to celebrate a birthday for one of my daughters. When I first arrived they weren't ready for my party even though I made a reservation way earlier. I did however like the private room they finally gave me once I was seated. The food and the total bill were very pricey and the food was a bit cold upon its arrival to the table but didn't want to send it back because I had waited long enough to eat. The two servers I had were great in making us as comfortable with all we needed during the course of the meal. I would give them another try in hopes they would redeem themselves next time.

I go to the Springhouse Tavern for brunch occasionally, and it never disappoints. The food selection is vast, waitstaff are friendly, and the environment is very homey. This restaurant is one of my favorite for Sunday brunches.

Four of us came for dinner on Sunday evening after Thanksgiving to celebrate a birthday. The food we selected was delicious and excellently prepared, cooked, and presented. Our wait staff were friendly, gracious, and helpful. The room we were seated was pleasant with ambiance. We had a good time and wonderful dinner thanks to the Spring House Tavern.

The Spring House Tavern has been a long time favorite restaurant in our family. The food is usually always wonderful and reasonably priced and they have an good drink menu. We went there for Thanksgiving this year and it was way to crowded and very loud. I don't fault the restaurant for that. Our server - Beatrice - was terrific - very sweet and helpful.

We were immediately greeted by host, who led to us to our table. Our server was pleasant, and promptly took our empty plates, and refilled our drinks (we were there for Sunday brunch). The food was very good, especially the made-to-order omelettes, which were nice and fluffy. We will be returning.

The staff is always very friendly and competent and makes you feel as if you are part of the family, even and most notably when they are quite busy and could easily blow you off. This "patron first" philosophy trickles down from the top and was once the responsibility of Jim Burns to set the bar high. Before Jim it was his father, and it is now carried on lovingly and with their added flair by Jim's daughters. This restaurant is the epitome of a family's commitment to quality. The bar and high top area has a totally different feel from the outdoor area, and from the main dining areas depending on what one is the mood to experience. Excellent crab cakes. Excellent snapper soup. Even the burgers fulfill. The specials are always worthy of a try.

I was at the Tavern twice in a week and both times, it was outstanding! I was with a group of 12 for lunch and the service was excellent. We all enjoyed our lunch selections, were able to have separate checks and hold a short meeting!
At dinner a few nights later, we (2 couples) had excellent entrees: scallops, crab cakes and liver!! all delicious! Our friends were excited that they could have the liver special since it's not always on menus and thought it was very very good!

We have been coming to Springfield Tavern for many years and have always enjoyed it.
Noticed that portions have gotten smaller but we still love the food.

If we don't care for the vegetable that evening we like to order Apple Sauce. Have been told it
is a popular request if the guest does not care for the vegetable that evening. Not too crazy about cole slaw and beets. Apple sauce is a good substitute. WISH SPRINGHOUSE WOULD
PUT IT BACK ON THE MENU. Don't know why it was removed.

Celebrated my wife's birthday and our 49th wedding anniversary. (Yes we got married on her birthday) I must say we both enjoyed our meals. She had the surf and turf I had the prime rib. Everything was served hot and you could tell it was fresh. Our waitress was the best. Friendly and punctual pure professional. Overall this was the perfect meal for this special occasion.

Time given to review the menu and enjoy our drinks. Dinner order taken and delivered in a good amount of time. We didn't feel rushed or waiting too long for dinner. Food was excellent and service was wonderful!!!! We will go back again soon!

First visit to the restaurant, and with my wife and friends. Food was tasty, but the prime rib was a little fatty. Drink pours were generous, and prices are very reasonable. Décor is a bit dated, but the place was busy, so others must not notice. Definitely worthy of a return trip.

Took a friend and his mom for a birthday brunch. Decent variety (steam table scrambled eggs were quite good if you don't choose to take advantage of the omelette station). Odd there were no bagels with the whitefish and salmon, all of which was tucked away next to the desserts--easy to miss. Desserts the day we went were heavy on macaroons (the coconut kind), the rest seemed commercial and not all that special. Setting is interesting. Service was genial. It's nicely priced. We would go again.

This is the second time my Husband and I have been here and we got the same meals we did the first time because they were so good. And they did not disappoint the second time. Broiled seafood combination was excellent and there are not many restaurants that have it on the menu. Shrimp, scallops, crab cake and lobster tail all delicious! It's not cheap but worth every penny.
