I have been here many times! The Gin Mill is just as good as the Blue Bird Inn, with gourmet food as well as bar food. The sides are generous and make the meal. Usually you don't need reservations, but on busy nights, it's recommended. They have a tray of beer samples that's fun to try. I discovered my favorite... More

This was rated the best of Lebanon, Pa and that is a sad statement if that is what the majority of patrons in our area believe. The food was needlessly greasy. I understand it's sorta' upper-end bar food but the butter toasted breads and rolls were soaked, the French fries and onion ring were just literally dripping in grease/oil on... More

Not fancy, great service, nice menu, full bar. We stopped in last nite at 530, no reservation. The place was packed, the wait was 45 minutes for 2. We decided to eat at the bar. Friendly bartenders. Fast and accurate service. I had the the Gourmet Cheddar BLT Kobe Burger, medium rare with onion rings. Perfectly cooked and one of... More

Food was awesome and service was great as well. The steamed clams were excellent and very clean. The scallops were succulent, and even the seaweed salad was very good.

I dined solo the evening of February 9, 2017 while staying in the area for business. I was drawn here in part by the restaurant's participation in the American Airlines Rewards Dining Program and it's proximity to my hotel. The restaurant is in a small city like neighborhood with limited on street parking in the area. There is a large... More

The food is original and delicious as well as being reasonably priced. The atmosphere in two of the rooms is cozy and pleasant, but the rest could use some up-dating. The grilled Ahi tuna sandwich is so fresh and delicious, and I like the unusual fried asparagus and other well-prepared, clever dishes. Not your "run of the mill" Gin Mill.
