I had never been to this restaurant. My husband had been years ago. It's clean, great decor, friendly wait staff. My husband had his standard burger that he said was delish if on the small side. The house chips with ranch dip as a side were very good. I opted for the salad bar. Everything was fresh. There aren't a... More

I have lived in York County 23 years and never stopped at the Coal Yard. What a pleasant surprise. Large outdoor covered deck would be great if it wasn't 100 degrees outside. Inside was dark which reminded me of a true pub type atmosphere. Bar seated 6 to 8 people. We sat at the bar. Happy Hour was great and... More

The steak is a 14 oz. Ribeye and it was cooked perfect (medium rare). The salad bar has great mix of greens. The employees were professional and know their menu. I will come back here again!

We had dinner here. The chicken sandwich was good, fries were warm. steak was a bit tough and salad did not seem fresh. Biggest complaint was server was talking with her friends most of the time and we had to ask for more tea and the check. There were 5 tables and 2 had her friends at them, others 3... More

Food and drinks were excellent. But they lacked good customer service. Only one other couple in the place but they were waiting on a large party to come in and it took forever for the waitress to acknowledge us. Had steak bites appetizer, they were excellent. Both of us had different sandwiches that were good. Kitchen was on top of... More

We had been to the Coal Yard about 10 years ago and weren't that impressed. The quality of food just wasn't there. We decided to try it again (we believe in 2nd chances) and found it had improved a lot. Service was fine and the food was good also. Maybe since the other folks were there they changed staff... Or,... More

The Coal Yard has been through several changes since I first started going there back in the 90's. They are getting back to their original menu and have improved dramatically in the past few years. If you haven't already, give them another chance. The menu is simple but has something for everyone. I've been very pleased with the quality of... More

My wife and I stopped in for a drink after dinner else where. We sat at the bar 15 minutes before the bar tender even noticed we were there. Needless to say they didn't have what she wanted. All the bar tender done was complain about a tip she didn't get. Probably because of the pissy service. I did want... More
