I have lived here for years and nothing else touches this place for fine dinning. We dine here at least 2 time a month.

Excellent protein, much of it locally sourced. Well prepared, with a number of different choices daily. They pour a decent pint of Guinness, too. Always a plus.

Never let down at the Roosevelt. Staff is great, almost like family. Food is always good. Have loved the prime rib from Roosevelt for years. Great tables that feel private, and not cluttered w a bunch of crap advertising "specials". Parking is easy. Place to hang your coat. The more I think about it, Roosevelt is one of best places...

One of the best burgers in York. They make them however you like with all kinds of topping choices and on Thursday at the bar they have great pub specials.

Some of the best prepared and seasoned food I've had in the past year. Had the special: tenderloin medallions with shrimp. Fantastic food amd atmosphere. Will definitely eat here again when visiting York.

We ate here tonite and the crab cakes lived up to the hype. The pork chop and prime steak were also good. I suggest trying the tavern shake for dessert.

It's really hard to return to a restaurant you once frequented many years ago on a weekly basis... You've heard the horror stories. Food people just hate change right? But, I am pleased to say that while things have indeed changed at the Roosevelt Tavern, it is still a wonderful, relaxing place to enjoy a fine dining experience! Yep, right... More

We have been dining at this restaurant for the past 18 years, less so since the change in ownership several years ago. The food used to be very good .... always consistent. Today it has become a very pricey restaurant that gives less food, and not the same quality as previous owners who sold out after owning it for many... More

Thank you FrequentcruiserPa for your recent review of the Roosevelt tavern and for your 18 yrs of continued dining experiences with us. When we purchased the restaurant from the former owners 5 yrs ago and made a commitment to the community to use only the freshest seasonal ingredients available to us throughout the year. Upon researching your negative reviewing history... More

I was here for lunch and ordered one of the specials-roast beef with bacon and pepper jack cheese on a pretzel roll with some amazing sauce and homemade chips. I expected something plain, and this was the opposite-excellent! The prices for sandwiches were around $11, a great deal! I went with a large group and the rest of the group... More
