I really enjoyed a quiet solo dinner at the Farnsworth House. The Pennsylvania Dutch Chicken Pot Pie was very satisfying and the sides were wonderful. Great comfort food.

We took the Mourning Tour and then went to the tavern. Food was good, but service was slow. A couple of loud patrons who had indulged a little too much detracted from the atmosphere. Specialty drinks were tasty and unique.

I went there last Saturday. The waitresses are in period costume. I was seated immediately and Candace promptly came over. The people there are genuinely friendly and care about you. When I needed the wifi password, Candace went next door to get it for me....More

We were there before 5:00 so couldn't order from dinner menu. People recommended the game pie (dinner item) I had fish n chips which was good. Many historical items were on display.

I had the pleasure of escorting a group of foreign business colleagues on a tour of the battlefield. Sweeney's Tavern was the perfect, casual and historically-themed restaurant to cap off the day. The applejack cider was an added bonus for a couple of my colleagues....More
