We chose this restaurant as it was within close walking distance to the Marriott as it was cold outside. Turned out to be an awesome experience. The place was packed (seems to be a hot spot for locals) and yet the service was still excellent. The food was yummy. The drinks were good. I would definitely recommend and would return... More

Awesome place for dinner or a lighter fair. We went on wing night and had some of the best wings in Lancaster. Can't beat the daily specials. Highly recommend this place before or after a show at the Fulton Theatre.

My friend and I would always visit the Lancaster Dispensing Company after the Theater, but one time she came to pick me up early and we went there before the show began. We had dinner instead of just a drink. Food was very good and the waitress, while waiting on so many tables was very attentive. I don't know how... More

I've been visiting Lancaster for decades. The LDS, strategically located center city adjacent to the Central Market, has been a bright spot in my travels for just as long. I went in for a late lunch and had a Reuben sandwich - also a regular favorite of mine. Enough to say it was excellent as always. Service was prompt and... More

We dropped in for a quick pre-"Ghost Walk" meal and were not disappointed. We were seated at the bar as the place was packed and were delighted to find excellent pub food and a bartender who knew her stuff! Great service, Ms. Frythe, you are an excellent mixologist. The building itself is historic and the décor is whimsical and fun.... More

I love the Lanco Dispensing Co. Always have. Eating here, 10/2016, was another great experience. Let me say that most of the staff and bartenders are simply great. Good attitudes and fun to be around, friendly and knowledgeable of their food product. The food is always tasty and at a price that most can afford. Nice selection of beer but... More

This is one of our favorites when visiting PA. Right next to the indoor farmers market; the food is excellent and the staff exceptional. A favorite of locals.

Second time we have eaten here while in Lancaster. It is a bustling pub with typical pub food- salads, sandwiches, burgers. I had the fish and chips. The portions were large, was stuffed. Staff was friendly and it seems to be popular with locals.
