Set in a 1780 Pennsylvania Stone Farmhouse with deep windows and a warm pleasant atmosphere this is a family owned and operated restaurant that is recognized as one of the Best of Lancaster for dinner, Sunday Brunch, patio dining, wine list, atmosphere and romantic settings. Although our building is over 225 years old we update our menu daily! Change is a good thing at the Greenfield. We specialize in next day delivery of seafood while we continue to cut our own steaks. You will enjoy selections from our wine list that has been recognized by the Wine Spectator Magazine for over 9 years. Our patio and balcony over looking the bar is among our customers favorite requests for lunch and dinner seating, while the wine cellar has two of the most romantic tables in the area. If you are traveling, this is one of those restaurants that you wish you had back home....and we are happy that you found us.

    Food was mediocre compared to the hype and reviews, I was expecting more. Very traditional style food, lots of gravy smothered an otherwise very well done steak. Portions were small Risotto under the scallops was drowning in butter/oil. Would not come back, especially for the price point. Would rather have a $100 meal elsewhere, better food can be found easily for that price.

    you may have been short of help but we did have to wait at several points during the meal. I waited a long while to get my credit card back after lunch. The girl said she had to teach someone how to handle a credit card. Overall a nice lunch

    Reservation for lunch with out of town friends. The place was slammed but service worked hard to keep up. The food was exceptional. Several of us had the Halibut which was truly amazing. Wine with old friends plus good food are always a welcome combination.

    The kitchen is run by a previous White House chef and the quality of the food shows that. Excellent fish options for appetizers and entrees. Wine list was impressive as were the seasonal cocktails.

    We celebrated our anniversary at the Greenfield. Food and service were fantastic. And price was fair considering our entree came with salad, rolls and 2 vegetables. Our waiter was knowledgeable about all entrees and answered our questions about the chef who was a White House chef in the past.
