Went to brunch to relax after a late night with the neighbors. The endless bloody's were the right call. The menu was comprehensive and tasty. We will be back.

Dinner was amazing from my Tuna Tartare to my perfectly glazed Salmon.
My waiter Brett made the evening even more special. Great service, prompt and always a pleasure to talk to! Two big thumbs up 👍👍

What looks as though it was once a beautiful experience- is now in need of aesthetic upgrade. Very old building - cool overhead lamps looked deco 50s. Period (not sure which- old period I suppose) sheer drapes yellowed with age- could use some beautiful draperies. Floor carpeting looked old- splitting and filthy. I could smell the mustiness in the place throughout dinner.
Food was good and by the menu items looked like they scored a good chef by reputation. Or COVID. Not a return again unless you are looking for a burger (excellent ), salad (Caesar was delicious) and a beer in the bar room as it has close proximity to the Sellersville Theatre.

Food is always excellent. Service is great. Love dining indoors but because of Covid we ate outside. Outside is extremely noisy with the traffic on the main road. Will still go back. One of my favorite places to eat.

Great menu options, ranging from moderately-priced sandwiches to modestly-priced entrees, with charming, turn-of-the 19th century atmosphere. Outstanding service -- personable without being presumptuous, just the right amount of checking-in. Will definitely dine there again when I'm in the area.

Lovely meal in one of the smaller rooms. It’s so pleasant when you can sit and relax over a good meal and not have people at other tables talking so loudly that you are able to hear every word of their conversation. We both commented on how respectful everyone was, especially considering the fact the every table was full. They had an excellent priz fix menu for $35. The soup (Spring Pea with Crabmeat) and the salad (asparagus wrapped in prosciutto with Arugula and mushrooms) was excellent. The mains were Lamb Bolognese with fresh paparadelle pasta and Red Snapper in a curry cream sauce. Both were delicious.

We arrived in town early for a Friday night show. For lunch; Wild Mushroom Arancini, and Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Salad Appetizers were delicious. The Lamb Bolognese was banging, as were the Chicken Salad Lettuce Cups. For dinner before the show we had the Cedar Plank Salmon and the Seared Sea Scallops, With Spanish saffron risotto, mussels, rock shrimp and chorizo.. so very well prepared, dinner in this historic landmark was delightful.
The venue is right Nextdoor, beautiful!

The liver pate was stellar, and I had planned to try it after reviewing the menu online. The surprise was the pea soup with crabmeat. I only decided to try that on the spur of the moment. It was amazing, and creamy! Turns out they added puréed parsnips to make it so creamy. A delicious take on an old standard!

First, let me say Washington House employs the sweetest staff. From the hostess, to the server Ellie and her support Natalia, they could not have been more efficient and accommodating. From the lovely covid distancing booth to the service, all was delightful. The tuna & scallop dinners were appealing and tasty. Don’t pass up the Blue Crab tostado appetizer. No room for dessert but a great selection. Always a sure thing at Washington House. Can’t wait for the weather to warm up for outside dining. They did have patio heaters for the adventurous.

Excellent! Service and food was great. Condition and cleanliness was also. Will definitely stay again. Surprised to see there was no bible in my room. I was disappointed to not see one, especially from a victorian hotel in Pennsylvania.

This was our 3rd time at the Washington House. The place is a consistent excellent dining experience. The shrimp crab cakes and salmon were delicious as was the bread pudding. We also like the size and quality of the drinks.
The service is attentive but not overbearing. I apologize for not remembering our server’s name but she did a great job .
Thank you!
