We had a business dinner here at our guests' request. I liked he old-fashioned feel of this place, which has operated since 1938. The bar area allows smoking, and that odor permeates part of the first dining room, so we asked to be seated in the back of the second room. Full dinners, old-fashioned style, but food that is not...

Some of the best prime rib I've ever had. They had a free shuttle to and from our hotel & Ann Marie, our server was amazing! I also highly recommend the Lima Bean soup & the Lemon Chiffon cake.

Enjoyed a lovely meal on Sunday. They were very accommodating and the food was delicious. 3 of our party of 4 had the shrimp stuffed with crab meat:) I will definitely go back the next time we are in the area!

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.
