Dined outdoors last evening. Service was good, but management systems need. Had a glass of house red wine. My guests arrived. Attempted to order a bottle of house wine. Was told it was not available. Switched to a more expensive bottle. Drank it with my 2 guests and ordered a 2nd bottle. After a considerable delay, was told their was no more wine of the same label. Was offered a substitution. What brand would guess? You got it - a bottle of the previously unavailable house wine - WTH?
2 of 3 main course delivered without vegetable sides ordered.
Our waitress was courteous, but was either forgetful or the kitchen was not issuing the entree's correctly.
Still, ... with tough times with COVID, so we did not complain and tipped generously. Had many great dinners at TWH, I guess they can have one off-night.

Our group of 10 had an excellent meal before seeing an excellent show at the Sellersville Theater next door. The waitstaff couldn’t have been more accommodating. Service was excellent, food was amazing, and everyone at the Washington House was friendly. Next time we will have to stay upstairs at the Inn!

Was wrongfully charged a $250 “deep cleaning” fee and accused of smoking in our room. We are NOT smokers. The “evidence” that was supposedly found was an empty bottle my boyfriend used for chewing tobacco. He even put in it the trash before we left. We are unbelievably disappointed because our stay was otherwise lovely. If the owner corrects this and refunds my money I will happily leave a better review. But the way I was condescendingly spoken to on the phone was unacceptable and I am owed an apology for that as well.

Amanda- I will refund your cleaning fee-I understand you did not intentionally leave the room smelling like tobacco. This was a learning experience for us- when the house keepers entered the room, it smelled of tobacco. Apparently leftover chewing tobacco can also make a room smell like cigarettes. Who knew? From now on, we will ask for no "tobacco use" in the rooms instead of no "cigarette smoking." I apologize that our learning curve affected your stay.

Thank you for your review, Stan, and for your message to me about how sweet Alexis, our host, is. We agree! So sorry breakfast was not delivered on time. We only serve our continental breakfast to hotel guests, but we will definitely look into how we can be more prompt.

First meal back at Washington House since pandemic, and what a disappointment!
We got an email promoting lobster roll special for the holiday weekend! Imagine our surprise—-they were sold out! Our waitress told us to try again tomorrow! My husband wanted to leave and elsewhere, but I talked him into staying. Calamari was cold, his lettuce wedge was small, and his sandwich was tasteless. Sorry, but we were disappointed! However, our pre dinner drink at the bar was exceptional! Ellie never disappoints!

Food is always good. They sent an email promoting lobster rolls and free signature cocktail. None of that was offered. Lobster rolls not even on the menu. Disappointing and poor marketing. Be awhile before we return. It’s a shame we like the place. But disappointed with the “ non promotion”

I received the email about your special offering this weekend, namely the Lobster Rolls.
We had not dined in at the Washington House since March 12, 2020, just before the pandemic struck us all.

The Lobster rolls were not mentioned by our waitress but she said we could have them and when she brought them out she said they were the Ladt two for the night(5:45).

The rolls had a minimal amount of minced lobster you would find at the bottom of a barrel! No chunks or identifiable pieces there! Nothing like the photo!
Excessive roll with no filling visible on presentation.

Evening was dominated by neighboring table complaining about lack of such rolls (though they did not miss a thing)
And these people walked out!

We did not have a peaceful pleasant return to your restaurant last evening. Too bad.
We never even got our beer before finishing dinner so had to order an additional plate of truffle fries as dessert to go with the beer.

Hoping a future visit is much better!

Joanne, Thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry we disappointed you! We were totally overwhelmed by the response to the lobster roll email and were not prepared. We learned a lot from the experience and it will not happen again. Please accept our apology and give us a chance to make it up to you!

We had a very nice lunch at The Washington House recently. The food was very tasty; however the Cuban sandwich that was ordered was not pressed or warm as it had on a previous visit and the Chile Rellenos was very good, but was an extremely small portion. I ended up ordering something else because the Chile Rellenos was just not enough for a lunch portion.
We did mention the issue with the Cuban sandwich to the hostess and they comped the sandwich which was not necessary, but appreciated. This will not stop us from going back to The Washington House. Overall we have always had very good meals and services there.

The server could not have been more pleasant and efficient. However, the food was not up to the usual standard for this restaurant. I don't know if it's because customers haven't returned but the menu was limited. My companion's entree was yummy (lamb) but mine was dry and over salted (chicken). The remainder of the meal (appetizers and dessert) was average at best. Will try again later in the year.
