Boneless Short Rib is the best you will ever have. Don't miss Prime Rib either. Every visit we were impressed with excellent quality of food. This is simply the best in Ephrata. Unfortunately the services are just OK. The wait staff sometimes are not very attentive or caring. One young hostess is so inexperienced that the host job looks very... More

Sat at the bar this evening. Barmaid was courteous. Had the pulled pork sandwich. Very good. Very nice place for either a big meal or just a sandwich. Nice atmosphere.

Love the burgers. Great place for a meal and a beer. If you are looking for a nice dinner, the scallops are fantastic. Prices are fair.

I got to eat crab legs for the first time in years and not just crab legs but fries with crab on top! Wow! I love it!!! The staff was great, and the atmosphere was nice too... I will definitely go back next time I am in town.

We were at the Lincoln house for food and drinks. Everything was just right and our waitress Bethany did a great job. Everyone was pleased with the food and service.

Stopped in here for lunch. We ate in the cozy bar area although the several dining rooms also looked very nice. A nice selection of sandwiches to choose from.

We shared an appetizer of short rib ragu over pumpkin bread, which was delicious and unusual! Both entrees, steak and a chicken dish, were well prepared and excellent! We shared a bottle of wine, which was moderately priced. Atmosphere, service plus, combined to make this an excellent dinner. Would definitely return when in the area,

The food and atmosphere is great; never had a bad experience. The staff is attentive and service is exceptional. Live nearby and we often walk to the Olde Lincoln House during the warmer weather and have lunch/dinner in the outdoor-seating Tiki Barn. One of my favorite places to dine inside or outdoors.

We were told it was a good place for dinner and it was. I had the Scottish salmon. It was very tasty and made to perfection. Hats off to the cook. The desserts can be improved.
