It's very nice outside and inside. However the service is terrible as is the food except for the tomato bisque. It was obviously built around the large bar in the front and bar stools & tables around the back large area. It has very few tables to actually eat. When you get the food, and it takes quite some time,... More

I usually avoid giving businesses...especially small businesses, bad reviews unless the service and food is absolutely atrocious. The staff was nice enough but inept. I picked up a lunch order and had to go back twice, once for an entire meal that I noticed was missing when I reached a red light not too far away, and then again, when... More

We were just driving through Lancaster County (back roads) looking at the beautiful farms and small towns. Found this very nice and clean looking place and stopped for lunch. This place is immaculately clean and has over 100 years of history. The owner is terrific, waited on us personally- we sat in a quiet pretty room looking out. We could... More

I took my boyfriend out for celebratory dinner, I had never been to the White Swan and he had been there a long time ago when it was under other management. I had the filet mignon, and a glass of red wine, it was awesome, the service was very good attentive. My boyfriend had the broiled seafood platter, which he... More

Wait staff very attentive as was the owner. Appetizer (potato skins) were very good. Wife's fettuccine with shrimp was very good. My NY steak was ok. Bit fatty and rare when I ordered medium. Good flavor though. Dessert was excellent as was the coffee. We will try again. Fettuccine is on the list but not the steak.

We have been to the White Swan several times in the last year and a half. The last 2 times have been very disappointing. The service extremely slow and we had to ask a few times about items that were not brought out. Our daughter's food didn't come out until two of the other kids were almost done with their... More

The young lady bartender was right on top of things and very pleasant. Food was excellent. Good mix of drinks. Three lunches, three adults beverages and a salad - less than $50.00 with the tip. Very pleased.

This was our second trip to the White Swan, the first being about 2 years ago. My wife got the grilled chicken, I got steak imperial, and we shared an Irish cream cake for dessert. To be honest, we did enjoy our food. The disappointment came when we got our bill. When we ordered, we showed our server an online... More

My husband took me to this restaurant for a combination Mother's Day-birthday dinner. The prime rib was tough, and the au jus was tasteless. The scallops were over-broiled, making them hard and dry. The tiny salad consisted of a little lettuce, one slice of cucumber, and a single unripe grape tomato.
