I had the chance to have dinner w/ a date at Lancaster Brewing company. I have been to the brewpub many times over the years and the homebrew club I belong to meets there.

I really like the atmosphere at LBC, the view of the fermenters and brewing equipment, very casual, yet interesting with copper topped tables. You can relax, play darts and unwind.

The quality is very good. I can't say I have ever returned a dish or beer. I enjoy cask ales and seasonals regularly which are fresh and the menu items are well made.

The variety of lagers and ales is good at LBC, I wish there were more beers on tap sometimes, but what is offered is consistent and done in the traditional style. I enjoy the pub selection on the menu and Oyster shooters w/ tabasco and porter are great.

The value is very good for what you get, I like the dollar off growlers and vulture buffet. This is one of the breweries I live closest to and I like the fact they don't dissapoint. I will continue to come to LBC for local flavor. The Pittsburgh steak salad really hit the spot as well as the chicken quesadilla appetizer.

Great food and vibe, but the clientele left much to be desired. I had the meatloaf on mashed potatoes with the milk stout gravy and carrots, and it was excellent. The beer was also great.
