Only reservation available was a high-top table in the bar area, which may have been a little bit noisier than the dining room, but overall the ambience was terrific with pianist playing in the background. Food was very nice and service perfect. We enjoyed it very much and will go back again soon.

We had Thanksgiving turkey dinner ($36 ea) which was excellent and with some to take home.
We arrived early on purpose to have a cocktail and both bartenders were friendly and knowledgeable.
The wine list has something for everyone and the stemware is excellent.
Less than excellent is the flatware which is more compatible with a diner than the Kimberton Inn and should be upgraded.
Well recommended for fine dining.

We hadn’t been here for years. We had forgotten how beautiful the rooms are from the furniture and fireplaces to the outstanding holiday decorations. The food was perfect for Thanksgiving. We ordered the turkey which was a great sampling of all the holiday favorites. The pumpkin pie was one of the best I have eaten in years. Drinks were mixed well. The entire experience was great. My husband is handicapped. He has a lot of problems walking. One of the wait staff came to the bar door to help him in. After the meal, the owner of the restaurant came to escort him to the car. What a delight to be at Kimberton for Thanksgiving this year!!

A cozy intimate and historic inn with low ceilings, fireplaces and candlelight. Very good service and excellent cocktails! The food was quite rich, and maybe a little salty for our taste but we enjoyed our meal very much and would return again!

100 percent amazing! We have found our new go-to special night place! Service was impeccable, not hovering but perfectly attentive. And the food was excellent!! We shared lobster bisque (rich, well favored, good amount of lobster) and golden beet salad (just perfect). We heard that someone said portions were small...that person is insane. Each plate was WELL portioned and just simply excellent in flavor,, presentation and execution. My wife LOVED the scallops and shrimp (subbed mashed for the fingerling potatoes), and my salmon was spot on. Rachel provided perfect service, and the owner (jeff) popped by the table and was just the right amount of welcoming host. We LOVE this place and will be back regularly!

We celebrated our anniversary at Kimberton Inn in Nov 2021 which was our first dinner out since Valentines Day 2020 due to Covid. Service was attentive, the food was excellent - especially the striped bass which was done to perfection. And our dessert came out with Happy Anniversary written on the plate in chocolate. We've been to the Inn many times and always come away pleased.

My appetizer salad was delicious and special. Husband's Caesar was pretty "blah", no real flavor of classic ingredients. My liver was pretty thin and chewy and I was not fond of having the liver, onions and bacon all on top of the potatoes which turned to mush from the liquid. Husband had shrimp and potatoes which didn't have any sort of concept. Shrimp was good and generous. They were out of apple crisp and the key lime pie substitute was nothing special. My husband ordered coffee that never come.
Disappointing considering recent rave reviews.

My husband and I came here for my birthday dinner. It was a nice, quiet, cozy and relaxing atmosphere. The food was incredible. I had the crab cake and he had duck. Wine was also delicious. Can’t go wrong with this place. It was our second time here and we will be coming back for more.
