Lehman's Tavern has excellent food. I have eaten there on numerous occasions and ordered different dishes. No matter what I get it never disappoints! The staff is friendly and fast. Always a good choice.

I walked in and I hoped the food was good. I was NOT disappointed. The special that night was prime rib and crab cake. I love them both and both were excellent. If you are looking for a great meal this is the place you want to go. Well worth the money you will spend. My waitress was an older... More

While the actual cut of meat was not bad, the place managed to ruin it. The steak that was broiled had absolutely no sear and no seasoning at all. It was an insult to meat everywhere. Also asked for medium rare and got on the well side of medium. Barely pink inside. Another insult to the poor animal who gave... More

Great turkey dinner. Waitresses are great, food portions are large. You will take home food for sure. Nice place close to the airport and hotels. Great for business lunches as well. I have been going here for 35 years and it is great. Denny who runs the place is always on top of everything. Wait staff is prompt and the... More

Came to this bar/restaurant not knowing what to expect...I think I experienced my first proper pub in the US...complete with man watching telly in the corner! Food was basic but plentiful, starters, bread and extras included in the price of a main. Good cold beer - what's not to like!

Very old school kind of place, I was actually waiting for Tony Soprano and his gang to walk in any minute. Service was good but the food was very average. People smoking at the bar didn't help.

We were expecting this to be a tavern, but it turned out to be more of a supper club. We were a bit turned off by the fact that you can still smoke at the bar in the same room that food is served.

Stopped here before a flight out of Philadelphia. Very friendly service, nice hospitality. Reasonable prices. Sat at a table in the bar. I had chicken Marsala. Big portion. Price included rolls, salad, chicken, starch and veggie. I loved the nostalgic feel of the place. Old school restaurant. I would definitely come back when I stay up here again for another... More

If you're under 60 you may find this place a little geriatric! The staff and the clientele!! Anyway the menu is solid and very cheap, and the food consistent. Good value for money if you are in the are and not fussy on ambiance!

This place was amazing many moons ago. It needs someone new to come in and renovate the place and the menu. All the food is bland. Not many choices for different types of people. Like vegetarians and those with gluten allergies. Time to overhaul. If you want help or ideas email me. I'd love to help make this place great... More
