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.

We have been to Greenfield Restaurant three times prior and enjoyed it previously.
However, today was our anniversary. We planned this well enough in advance and requested to be seated outside for brunch on Sunday. For a 4 star restaurant, I was underwhelmed. We made reservations for 1:30pm. I ordered the eggs benedict special with a fruit salad. Just the presentation was quite disappointing. The eggs benedict was something I felt I could get at Bob Evans. The fruit salad was supposedly fresh but I would beg to differ.
Most importantly, we felt somewhat rushed. When we arrived at 1:30 to the restaurant, it was as though they were already closing up. By the time we got to dessert, some of the staff had already left and everyone was chit chatting as if we weren't there. It was honestly uncomfortable.
Overall, I hate to give it 3 stars (esp with everhthing going on) because I have been wanting to come here for my anniversary for a year now and, as a returning customer, I felt let down.

We celebrated paying off our house with a spectacular meal. The outdoor service was impeccable. Starting with hot rolls and our drinks, we were able to relax and forget about the crazy times were experiencing. Our soups and salads were perfect. The house dressing is flavorful, rich, and homemade. The blue cheese dressing is the best I’ve ever had. We each had a delicious entree. Crab cakes were lightly seasoned with jumbo lump crab. The filet mug on was perfectly seared and cooked. The diver scallops were delicious. We finished with a shared dessert of fried ice cream that was amazing . A hot cup of what tasted like French press coffee was a great way to end the meal.

They were ready for our arrival, greeted and congratulated us on our anniversary. They did not have live music that evening—our only disappointment. Otherwise, it was a wonderful time. The ambiance and service was excellent and the food outstanding with a beautiful presentation. We would return without hesitation and would certainly recommend it to others.

Visited for the first time on our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We we greeted and wished a Happy Anniversary which was nice. We dined outside which was cozy. I ordered the French Onion soup as an appetizer which was nothing to write home about. The onions were not caramelized and it seemed to be just thrown together very quickly. We had the Pan Seared Scallops and Crab Cakes which were very good. The waitress had vey little personality. All in all I just don't think this place is worth all the hype.

Crab cakes were good but could have had more flavor. Perhaps served with a sauce?

We visited last weekend for a special anniversary and although we've had positive visits in the past, this one was not that. Had to move inside due to rain and the tables were not 6' apart on either side of us, as stated by PA law. Our waitress wore a face shield on top of her head, not covering her mouth, not a mask, and got closer than 6'. I saw the busboy, touching a new cloth tablecloth, many, many times without gloves to adjust it, and put a salt and pepper shaker BACK onto the table without wiping it from the previous 4 customers.
Our daughter tried to pay for our check by calling the restaurant and was told there was no one in the restaurant with our name, although we made the reservation under OUR names, and even with a careful description, he couldn't locate us in the main dining room.
We have also had some good meals here, but this time, all the food was just okay, lacked seasoning. The dessert, a large cream puff, was the best part of the meal. To add insult to injury, I contacted the restaurant to let them know of our not too pleasant experience and they never returned my contact.
Not sure we'll return too soon, especially during COVID.

My friend and I were visiting Lancaster and found The Greenfield Restaurant online. I wanted a special place to celebrate his birthday. The outdoor patio was beautiful and perfect for outdoor dining (a must for us in the middle of the COVID pandemic). The food was fabulous! The waitress was friendly and helpful in choosing menu items and good wines by the glass to accompany our food choices. Greenfield has some nice choices on their wines by the glass list so it was fun to try several instead of our usual one bottle choice. We were at a small table for two and we did wish she had cleared used plates and glasses more often, but that didn’t detract from a great dinner in a beautiful place. If we get back to Lancaster at a non-COVID time, we’ll definitely give the bar and indoor seating a try.
