I live fairly close to Lancaster and have heard many good things about this restaurant. When I went to eat dinner there was only one waitress working the bar and dinning room, she seemed upset that i wanted to sit in the dinning room instead of the bar! Apparently she couldn't handle working both although the place was nearly empty.... More

Food was good and there was plenty! Waitress staff were not very accommodating: 1. We asked for seating for 8 and one infant. The place was not full yet they said "we are not allowed to put tables together." 2. When we were paying the bill, my husband said the bill would be split but they ran off with just... More

I was visiting the area with my family for a little scenic getaway and to celebrate halloween . There were not many restaurant choices in town. A small bakery and a bar that doesn't except debit cards! We chose to try out JL Sullivan's and it was delightful! I asked my waitress what she would suggest and she replied the... More

Great seafood chowder. My husband had a Rueben which he was very happy with, and it looked great. I had the chicken tender appetizer which was average. The beer selection is usually good. They some of their own. Pub atmosphere.

The servers were very friendly. It was a nice and clean Irish Pub environment with warm and friendly staff. Liz, the bartender and the entire staff were welcoming and friendly. I'd definitely stop by again when in Lancaster. Only down point this time of year is every place in the town seems to close before 10 pm during the off... More

We loved to have Magner's cider again, and I had fish and chips. Add some mushy-peas and it would have been perfect. My husband had the chicken tenders--which were plentiful. The fries were excellent, like they were double-fried? There aren't a lot of restaurants in Lancaster, so I highly recommend Sullivan's. It had a very nice atmosphere too. Truly like... More

I have been here a few times for lunch and dinner. The food has always been good and the have some different beers on tap. I was there once for dinner and almost left since there was a very noisey rehearsal dinner group there and we were seated right next to the group. There is nothing on the walls to... More
