I've been going to Quips for many years. I really enjoy the ambiance; a nice place for me and a buddy to stop after work for a pint or two and also a good place for a meal with my spouse. Their food is quite good.

The beer selection is decent but not great. They rotate 3 - 4 taps but the other 7-8 stay the same and none of them really interest me. I can usually find something I like from the 3 - 4 rotating taps but sometimes have to resort to bottles. While I really like this place, they don't cater as much to the craft beer drinker as say Capone's in Norristown, PA or Al's of Hampden in Enola, PA. Wish they would.

The wife and I are in Quips about once a week. The food is always mostly British Pub style with some rotating specials and always great. Service is great. Love the atomsphere, however, it can be quite crowded and noisy, especially later in the evening. Beer selection is good, not stellar, with 4 rotating taps and several British/Irish staples on tap and a decent bottle list. Its good to keep your eye out for the rotating taps, as they will put a few rare gems on tap from time to time.

Great little local bar. Darts in the corner with always someone playing. Dimmly lit and can get crowded. Food is really good. 20min walk from the center of town makes it less traveled but it does have a loyal following. Good beer selection with new beers all the time.

If you want to meet some people to run your gabber off too you have to go to Quip's. By far the best group in Lancaster to drink with. The younger college crowd mix in a bit on the busy nights but it doesn't detract at all. Always a good time at Quip's.

Visually the place is nothing to marvel at. It's no Iron Hill but that place is a bit too fancy for it's own good anyway. It IS well kept despite it's appearance though. Stools are fine, tables are fine, everything's clean, etc.

Service is a hard one for me on this place. I'm usually distracted by a fellow beer nerd or a college aged lady in some capacity. I know my beer is always ready for me and I've had the food so I can't knock it. Never really had any interactions with the staff short of ordering though. Quip's usually has a crowd going in my experience.

If you want authentic english beers you might be let down. Selection is very good if you factor bottles in but if you drink the handles expect american beers to dominate. Mostly micro/craft though. This doesn't bother me.

I only eat wings at Quip's and I do so because they're delicious. If you like them hot then you'll feel at home. I order medium everywhere and learned i can't at Quip's. :D they serve standard pub faire and it's done well. They also have a menu for those looking for an actual dinner which is supposed to be good but I'm usually solo for Quip's and tend to stick with apps and pub grub.

Probably the best value in town. Market value on beers and food. Good job Quip's.

Good beers, good food, great crowd, fast service though not always personable. Good mix of people ethnically and by age. I have a small beef with the beer selection. The beers they have are always great. There's definitely someone there who knows what they're doing. I just wish they could give you more choices. Go to Quip's.
