I had gumbo. Excellent. Wife had scallops
Appetizer. Cornbread w/ sauce not so good, scallops good. For entree I had bourbon pork loin. Excellent. Wife had lamb bolognese, very good, noodles were excellent. For dessert we shared the rum raisin apple crisp. Very good, not exceptional. The house coffee was exceptional. Overall the scallops appetizer needs work.

My wife and I have been here a few times and never hesitate to come back. Good tables. Good food. Decent wine list. The staff was solid, if a bit overwhelmed at times, but it was a busy concert night.

The food was excellent, from our salads to the entrees. We arrived to a very crowded pre-show Washington House, but settled in quickly at the bar for a cocktail. Upon being seated we enjoyed good service and dining experience. While we did have an issue with one of the entrees that came out, they promptly addressed it. We'd visit again.

Food was fantastic! Valentines weekend so very crowded. Lovely table by the windows. Very cozy but sadly cold as the temperature was frigid.
Great bar/tavern area I would love to sit in next visit!

My wife and I had an 8:45 PM reservation this past Valentine's Day. Overall, the experience was pleasant. We arrived at 8:20 and the Hostess told us we had to wait for the them to seat the 8:30 guest. My wife and I waited until 8:45 and no one came to get us. So, we returned to the hostess stand and were told that the tables were being prepared. As I looked around there were plenty of open tables. The vibe we got from the 2 hostesses was a cold as the frigid 19-degree temperature outside. The service was slow even though the restaurant did not seem busy. My soup was only warm and tasted like canned soup. My tea was also warm and had to ask for hot water. The portions were small and the time between servings was painful. My 14 oz NY Steak was well-done vs. Medium and the steak knife provide was more like a dull butter knife. We both drank our glasses of water and were never offered more. Other than that, we enjoyed each other’s company being it was our 33rd wedding anniversary.

We had a great dinner at the Washington House. The setting is an 1800s Inn. The food was very good and was priced very reasonably. My wife had salmon and she loved it. I really enjoyed the striped bass. Our server was very friendly an attentive. I only wish I had room to try the chocolate chi pecan pie.

Terrible service. We eat here at least once a month and our service has never been worse. We will not return. Waitress was terrible. Didn't even keep our water glasses full. Got our charges wrong on our bill TWICE!

Had dinner with my wife at The Washington house prior to catching a concert at the theater next door. The menu had a nice variety of choices, we got the crab cakes and scallops and both tasted great! Relaxed atmosphere, business casual is a good description. Service was quick and friendly, I had no complaints. If in Sellersville again, I would come back!

It’s a great old inn. Exactly what you expect, and then so much more than you’d expect. Better food, beer and vibe than so many similar tavern/inns.

I really like the Washington House. It is a great restaurant by itself, but it has the added features of the Sellersville Theatre next door and the hotel upstairs.
The food is excellent and the service is great.
