We were seated upstairs near a window; the atmosphere was nice considering the ongoing pandemic precautions. I would have given the food an outstanding, except our entrees were not hot--just tepid. All the food was tasty and the presentation perfect. The wait staff and management was thoughtful, professional and they attended to our every need.

The service was wonderful and very professional and attentive. Due to Covid, we sat "outside" on the porch which was covered with a tent. It was very nice inside even though being in a tent. They have great 'special' cocktails, and the rest of the bar is very nicely stocked. Our dinner was excellent and the food was abundant.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice evening out.

It’s hard to compare COVID era dining with earlier times, but every thing possible is being done at Kimberton to make tented late winter dining as atmospheric, comfortable, and well ventilated as can be. Tables are candle lit and well spaced. There is even live music piped from inside some nights. The food and service are classic Kimberton. It is our to-go spot during these mostly stay-at-home times.

Some parts of the meal the food was outstanding, others were good. Service was good but not outstanding, even though with a limited dining customers we seemed to be forgotten about while the table next to us obviously was a regular and doted on. Overall a good dining experience, but for the cost I would expect an outstanding experience throughout the entire meal.

My daughter and I had a date night under the tent. It was such a pleasurable experience. The heater at our table made it feel like we were seated next to a fire place. It was so warm and cozy. The food is always great and so is the service. I love the Kimberton Inn.

Excellent fare. Crab Cake, Leg of Lamb, fillet Mignon, Lobster Bisque outstanding. Service was attentive but not invasive.

During the pandemic, there were only six tables in a heated tent on the patio, so it was a fortunate reservation we were able to make.

The owner takes pride in his restaurant and his highly trained staff. He came around to the tables and spoke with us in a friendly manner. I highly recommend this restaurant!

It is the middle of February but too cold, sitting on cold metal chairs, food got cold quickly, feet were freezing, we took extra blankets and still too cold. Service was lukewarm. Not many people to serve but servers have to walk so far to the patio to deliver the service was slow. Seemed understaffed. Food is good.

Wonderful special occasion restaurant. Fabulous food, great service, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere. Very comfortable inside the tent. Every table has a heater. In fact I had to ask to turn it down. Also provided lap blankets. It’s pricey so would save for special treat.

Our dinner for 4 was absolutely delicious, from appetizers to dessert. We were seated outside,in January, under a tent with heat lamps and we’re quite comfortable. We look forward to the end of the pandemic restrictions so that we can visit next time inside the Inn.

Dined at Kimberton Inn for New Years Eve. Currently, only outside dining is open in PA. Their tent was lovely. Plenty of space between tables. Even with openings on both sides to keep airflow going, it was warm and cozy enough that we were able to take off our coats. Service was excellent as was the food. We have never had a bad meal at Kimberton Inn and this was no exception. They are making the best of a tough situation that all restaurants are facing and they are doing a very good job at it!

We had a lovely meal at the Kimberton inn. Service was absolutely outstanding. Menu was varied . The meal was paced perfectly. It’s a nice place so I expect to pay a premium price. But $30 for a plate of spaghetti is pushing it. For a few dollars more I had a delicious duck dinner. Prices just seemed a little out of whack for some things However, this would not stop me from returning to the Kimberton

We dined at the Kimberton Inn for our six year anniversary this past weekend. The Inn is gorgeous - it was beautifully decorated for Christmas and had a huge fireplace that I loved. I had a great cocktail (French 75) and the scallops and risotto appetizers for my dinner, which were both good and very filling. The risotto was a little dry but the scallops were cooked perfectly and were quite tasty. I also loved my chocolate Orange torte with vanilla ice cream, which was a substitute to the chocolate buttercream sandwich I really wanted. But it made due nicely. Overall, I enjoyed my dining experience and would come back. My only wish is that the bread didn’t cost but I guess it is what it is. I’d recommend dining here - it’s kinda neat that the Kimberton Inn was founded so long ago and is still standing.
