OUR OUTDOOR SEATING IS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. Please cancel within 24 hours of your reservation, we are limited on our seating.

Our History: Dating back to 1740, this stone building, formerly called the "Sign of the Spread Eagle", was a "Stage Tavern". It was one of the better inns along the 62 miles of turnpike stretching from Philadelphia to Lancaster, and catered to the more prosperous class of travelers, providing him with accommodations suited to his means. Fine liquors and fine foods were served in generous portions to satisfy the hearty appetites generated by a long day in a rocking, jolting stagecoach. We continue that tradition!
Through the generations, the Revere Tavern has preserved this tradition of quality and abundance. Our family, the Cosgroves, have owned the property for over 54 years and we thank you for your business!

First time, we loved the ambiance, it was quiet and we felt safe. The dinning room was large enough for our safety. The meals were more than we really want to eat and really good.

We love this place! The bar area is so homey and cozy....sometimes we eat dinner in the bar area. We especially like the room across from the bar the best. The food is excellent. Was just there and had the amazing Mushroom Ravioli which was amazing and sinful. The pumpkin cupcake with a caramel center was to die for. You can't go wrong with The Revere Tavern........and of all things, it's in town of Paradise, PA!!!

Service left a lot to be desired. The French onion soup was cold and had no flavor or onions in it. The rest of the meal of ok, way below expectations.

After I spoke to you about service and the french onion soup, I personally waited on you and your partner. You both told me you enjoyed your meals and left happy, so your review surprises me a bit. I would love for the both of you to come back when we are unmasked and can see our smiles. This is our family business and we take pride in our food and service. Tina

Thank you for your review. While we love to have the fireplaces on all the time, they actually omit quite a bit of heat so during the 70 degree days, we just can't light them.

Have been going there for 33 years. The quality of the kitchen has been going down hill the past couple years. Not a fine dining restaurant anymore. They need to hire a better Chef or kitchen manager.

Food was excellent as was the service. Wasn’t thrilled to be in the “overflow” room as the ambience was that of a typical conference/banquet room. However, given the covid restrictions we understood and appreciated the space between tables. Will definitely be back!

Our party of 4 dined here before seeing the Magic Show nearby. Service and food were excellent. Only problem was not a proper amount of silverware at table. Had to ask for another fork after eating salad. Dining room was large and tables will spaced. However, if you want to enjoy the historical nature of the tavern, ask to sit in the old part of the tavern.

I have eaten here many times and am never disappointed. The menu is modified due to covid 19, but it is still has a good selection to choice from. There is both inside and outside dining. We ate inside since it was after the sun had set. The waitress was super friendly and efficient. Food is good value for the price.

Everything about the experience was awesome. We were greeted at the door, walked to our table - waitress was awesome, atmosphere was great. Food was totally delicious. Best Filet and crab dish I've ever had. What to Lancaster for about 1 hour 20 minutes to shop for the weekend. Will definitely go back just to eat dinner at Revere Tavern again.

Always a favorite, but past visits always presented “dinner and a show” due to issues with either guests or service. Some patrons were obnoxious (loud or questionable behavior) and not the restaurants fault. Other times the kitchen couldn’t get their act together with long wait times.

This time all was well with the exception of Luke warm appetizer.

All ended well with a good meal and excellent service.

They're doing a great job setting tables apart outside of solid social distancing, my pregnant wife and I felt safe. The food is phenomenal and a great value- we were pleasantly surprised! Very cool to note the history of this place and that it was once owned by the 15th President of the USA! Rob is a great server!
