We've stopped here several times now in our travels from VA to NY. The usual trip consists of stopping at the luxurious HoJo next door (I'm kidding, of course) and hobbling over to Lancaster for dinner and brews. Probably the most impressive part of this combination is we often spend just as much (if not more) on our Lancaster bill as we do for the HoJo bill for one night.

The atmosphere is upscale pub. It's clean and has a warm, pleasant feel. It's a bit awkward if you walk in through the door closest to the HoJo as the host stand is on the other side of the restaurant. In effect, you have to walk through the restaurant to be seated. Minor gripe.

The menu is sandwiches, pizza, an assortment of decent American-flair entrees and a nice selection of appetizers. The olive plate is two huge fistfuls of olives -- a good deal for the below $5 mark. We have had everything from pizza to the crab stuffed trout to hamburgers -- all have been well-seasoned, nicely presented, and good portions for the price. The most recent visit I had the pretzel encrusted chicken -- it was quite flavorful and the pretzel coating offered and interesting texture. Thus, the food selection is quite good.

The beer is consistently good. This past visit I had a pint of the Amish Four Grain and the Winter Warmer; my girlfriend had the Milk Stout and the IPA. All tasted fresh and were the perfect ending to a hectic day of travel from DC. The selection, of course, is limited to the beers made by Lancaster. However, if you are remotely interested in beer, you should find something good to try. They offer a sampler of all tapped beer, too.

A welcomed place right off of the 83 -- in an area that is mostly dominated by chain restaurants. A worthy stop.
