Family Night Out For Dinner at the Historical Concordville Inn
Family Dinner Night Out at Concordville Inn
Great Food at Reasonable Prices
Family night out for a delicious meal, can be difficult and expensive. It is stressful for families to find decent restaurants, with good food and affordable prices. Our family hit the jackpot, when we returned to historical, Concordville Inn, established 1777, located at 780 Baltimore Pike in Concordville, Pennsylvania. On our way to the restaurant, this beautiful cloud mass formed in the sky as the sunset. This was a nice complement as we arrived, ready to experience once again, one of our family's favorite places to eat. It has received that reputation, due to the intimate surroundings, delectable food along and music from a pianist, who tickle the ivories with romantic music, that penetrates the air as you dine.
In the foyer of Concordville Inn, an antique car is displayed. It harmoniously blends with the establishment of this restaurant from 1777. A sobering feeling consumes you, upon arrival in their spacious, waiting area with a fireplace and meticulous decor. Mr. Hiknet, along with Concordville's management team, take great pride in seating their customers quickly. Our waitress this time was Ashley, a very attentive, polite young woman; who has worked there for more than two years. The combination of good food, service and reasonable prices, made our dinning experience memorable and causes our family to return. Their large dinning area has been beautifully renovated, with a bar along with private rooms for small family gatherings.
The inns' centuries of existence, has obviously contributed to exemplary food preparation. It is rare to find good food with a relaxing ambiance. Appetizers such as homemade Snapper Soup, can be purchased for $4.50 or a large succulent portion of Cajun Chicken Pasta at $14.95. Prices vary, depending upon your elegant taste for the evening.
My youngest daughter Jaleesa, recommended we return to the Concordville Inn, for our family night out. As a single woman in her twenties, she likes to treat herself to a good meal every now and then. For the evening Jaleesa, decided to have the french onion soup for starters, a salad and the Cajun Chicken Pasta, for an entree. "The flavors within the dish were very good," she happily explained. My husband Walker, also had the french onion soup which is also one of the restaurant's specialties. "This is one of my favorite places, for french onion soup," he said smiling. Next Walker, had a salad as well as the Roast Prime Rib of Beef Au Jus, which is another house specialty. He delved into this dish with pure exaltation, until every single morsel had disappeared. Ashley, our waitress returned with a smile and stated, "I can tell you enjoyed that." Walker, laughed in total agreement. In the meantime, I enjoyed a bowl of the infamous Snapper Soup Au Sherry, which has a splendid taste and maintains a reputation of its own. Ashley, also smiled as she came to remove a nice clean bowl, which was evidence of my adulation for this soup. For an appetizer, I enjoyed the Steamed Little Neck Clams which were also delicious. The crispy Roast Long Island Duck with a delicate glaze, was my entree. After seeing various deserts being delivered to a table next to us, we decided to try the chocolate mouse with a whipped topping. It was a nice light way to finalize our family night out for dinner. In the midst of this delectable meal, was good, vibrant conversation along with the masterful creative sounds of our pianist, who ended our evening by playing Lionel Riche's, I Love You. For less than $100, our family of three had drinks, appetizers, salads, entrees and desert. Our family night out at Concordville Inn, was not only memorable but we stayed within our budget and we will return again in the future. To obtain reservations call, 610-358-9300.
