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.

Will NEVER eat there again! Food was terrible. The menu online is a lie. It is a 2 sided piece of paper for a menu, and you are definitely over charged. There food is salty and their steaks are full of fat and grissle. Don't waste your time!

Have not visited the Olde Lincoln House in a number of years, because we moved about 30 minutes away. Visited this past weekend for a reunion, and was pleased the the quality of food remained excellent! Food excellent, service great. Will be back- and not wait as long, next time.

We did not have the opportunity to eat at the restaurant itself, but the take out was good. I had the shrimp & avocado salad which was quite tasty, and also the chicken & asparagus pasta. The pasta could have used a bit more asparagus, but it was a solid, (allegedly) low-calorie choice. The restaurant looked lovely & quaint when... More

Restaurant is historic to the little town of Lincoln which is now part of Ephrata, PA. Nostalgic place to eat with good food and atmosphere. Wait staff is very attentive. Prices are middle of the road. During warm weather they have the tiki bar outside and you get the same food there as in restaurant.

Good food and good service at a decent price. We've enjoyed the Chesapeake burger and Reuben on two separate occasions. We've also had the same pleasant server on both occasions. Overall a good menu with bar-fare and a pleasant atmosphere.

Poor quality tomato soup- tasted like thickened sweetened catsup, wouldn't return to this place. Dingy atmosphere.

We took the grand children to have supper at the tiki bar. The service was good and no long wait with the kids which made it all the better.
