Don't waste your time!! – The evening started out waiting 45 minutes for our table,only to be told,"I forgot you were here".We ordered our meal after a lengthy wait from our server.My seafood bisque was lukewarm very bland. Eventually our entree arrived,the crabcakes looked like they were thrown on the plate and were also very bland.What a big letdown,our experience with "fine dining"will lead us to other restaurants in the Lancaster area!!
Simply One of The Best. – My family arranged a private room for 18 in order to hold a surprise birthday party for my mother. The atmosphere and staff were excellent. I had the lamb as an appetizer, and I had never experienced such a mouth watering delight, it was simply out of this world, I loved it. I also ordered their Shrimp Cocktail, they were large and fresh, and a joy to eat. I loved the little boat like serving tray they served it on, and it is one I also would recommend. My French Onion soup was simply OK, but I have had much better. My house salad was very appetizingly prepared, it was beautiful to look at, fresh and crisp. Hard to believe that something such as a salad, could be made in such a way as to cause excitement, but this one did.
My main course was Filet Mignon, and I ordered a 16oz serving. It was cooked just the way I like it, and it was perhaps one of the best steaks I had ever eaten. At $3.95 an ounce, there were very high expectations, and they met them and more. The vegetables of the day, were uninspiring, and they were pushed to the side of the plate, I few obligatory bites, and they left me unimpressed. My full attention was on that beautiful Filet, which I was unable to finish anyway, and they wrapped it up for me in a cute aluminum foil creature to take home. We all had a fabulous time, not my kind of place for everyday eating, but for a special occasion or treat, it is one I would highly recommend. Simply one of thee best high end dining establishments in York or Lancaster Counties.
Peaceful and Classy – In the tiny square of the little town of East Petersburg lies this fancy restaurant. Pricey but good. Excellent wine selection and daily chef specialties. Could use a little kick in the spice department dishes need a little pizzazz of flavor (we like to taste all ingredients and spices) but classic elegant dining experience. Excellent olive and rosemary bread and great service. Dress nice and enjoy a candle lit dinner. Not open on Sundays and has an upstairs. Make a reservation and specify if you cannot do stairs.
Uninspired – Not at all bad! But uninspired...I expected a much better experience for the price. The food was average and the menu was average. On a high note, the wine list is quite nice.
Tasty steak and another chapter of Lancaster history. – The Scene
Housed in the original site of the Stauffer General Store, circa 1852, Haydn Zug's takes its name from the store's 20th-century owner, a popular local fixture. The Colonial American element is alive in pewter tableware, while candlelit table settings add a quiet--but not stuffy--elegance.
The menu is traditional American, with steak and Maryland crab recurring throughout. Mushroom caps filled with crab, lobster puree and beefy French onion soup are good starters. Norwegian chicken is a surprising, successful combination of chicken breast, smoked salmon and capers in a rich tomato sauce, while duck breast with Grand Marnier sauce is a classic treat. For dessert, indulge in the bananas Foster with locally made Coleman's ice cream.
