Stopped with family for breakfast New Year's Eve. The pancakes were wonderful. Other people in our group had the Eggs Benedict, Crab Benedict and the Breakfast Burrito. Everyone said the food was great. Save room for their desserts, though. The pastry case looked fantastic!

Blue Bell Inn

In April 2013, after changing ownership, Blue Bell Inn closed its doors and underwent extensive renovation and redesign for over a year. In an effort to preserve historical significance, various aspects of the Inn were kept intact and enhanced through thoughtful restoration. An exposed rock wall from the original 18th century edifice was refurbished and is a focal point in the main dining room. Antique glass and old-fashioned bottles reclaimed during construction were repurposed into striking pieces of art throughout the restaurant. A more spacious floor plan was developed and quintessential indoor-outdoor spaces now encourage seasonal dining. New materials such as Italian porcelain tile, black marble and solid white oak were introduced to create a unique rustic-meets-modern ambiance. Today, Blue Bell Inn serves as a stunning architectural melange spanning three centuries.

We were excited to take our friends from Texas to this restaurant. Damn, we were disappointed. First, I must admit the staff was very efficient and friendly. However, the food was below average, expensive and very small portions. There were 3 orders of the catch of the day. Pathetic amount. We thought the catch was sea bass, but turned out to be minnows. I ordered the lamb for 36 bucks. 4 small slices, 9 dollars a slice. The big problem I had was I know that it was not lamb. The place was overrun with people. I believe they ran out of lamb and substituted steak. I would have raised a big stink but we were with friends from Texas so I let it pass. On top of that, I kid you not when the “lamb” was like chewing on my sneakers. My advice, go 3 miles away into downtown Ambler. Many great places to eat at a more reasonable price. Never again.

Cantina Feliz

Reviewed By MyFeetTravel

It’s decent food, nothing noteworthy or overly compelling. Drinks were okay. Frozen margaritas seemed pre-made, nothing special. Also, whether you get chips and salsa seems random. Some customers just got them and when I noticed, I had to ask for mine. The server got them for me with no problem, I just wondered why I had to ask. They have a good happy hour with a couple dollars off drinks. Honestly, if I’d had to pay more for that canned margarita I would’ve been upset.

El Limon

Reviewed By Lee R - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

This place is great, we have been coming here for a few years and keep coming back! The food is very diverse and we love the torta sandwiches and burritos for lunch and the heavier fajitas for dinner. We always order the fresh guac and salsa with chips and they are a must have. They go great with the free margaritas! There are plenty of vegetarian options and everyone we have introduced to this restaurant is now addicted. Also the two hot sauce options are amazing and should be used.

Second time at Po Le...the owner' daughter runs the show and does it very well..friendly, accommodating, filled my wine glass every time it got close to empty - just a sweet, hardworking young lady that makes your dining experience nice...food was very good - we had eight in our party and most had the seafood pasta...lots of seafood and an ample portion for $28...soft shell crab appetizer looked good...eggplant rolotini appetizer was very good...Caesar salad was fine - a little skimpy...group shared a few of the homemade desserts...byob is always a plus...very nice evening.

Bridget's Steak House

Reviewed By JEBrown67 - Horsham, Pennsylvania

My husband and I went here for our anniversary based on several individuals recommendations, we were not disappointed. I had the lamb and he steak. Both were great. We had flat bread as and appetizer, yum! The fig and prosciutto salad is Wonderful. The only not so great thing was dessert, we had chocolate chip bread pudding - won't get that again. I would definitely go back again. It's a little loud.

Magerk's Pub

Reviewed By Molley C - Magnolia, Delaware

We had dinner here at the recommendation of locals. We enjoyed our dinner (cheesesteak eggrolls, wings, and sandwiches) Friday night. The restaurant was busy but has plenty of seating. We needed a regular height table and they were able to accommodate us without a wait. We enjoyed the Gold Rush wings so much (flavorful and stayed crispy) that we decided to go back for lunch on Sunday. I tried the honey lime cilantro wings and they may be the top sauce flavor I've tried. Only disappointment was waiting for them to open at 11:30.

Pie and Plate Cafe

Reviewed By cakybr100 - North Wales, Pennsylvania

Today was my 6th time at Pie & Plate for lunch. It is the most perfect place - ingredients are always fresh. The owner and her staff are great. I had the BLT salad today and my daughter had the Turkey with honey mustard sandwich on a croissant. A cup of lemongrass tea in a big mug was lovely. The desserts......ridiculous. The interior makes you feel like you're at the beach - bright and cheery. We love the white leather chairs and flowers on the table. The Free Shop is a 2 blocks up for a little shopping after lunch. Can't beat that kind of afternoon.

I have been going to Phil's for over 20 years. Love the burgers and ribs. My husband likes Charlie's Salad and the flounder. Good onion soup snd Reubens too. The menu is HUGE! Easy to find whatever you want! Large portions too.
