Lancaster, PA is a unique place when it comes to the food scene. You'll get such a wide array of foods with its diversity in cuisines as well as its local heritage. Today, I'm highlighting a handful of my favorite restaurants and dining spots dishing up classic American fare.
Lancaster Brewing Company
Needless to say, this place is more than just food.
Inspired by 300 years of local brewing history, the Lancaster Brewing Company is brewing right in the heart of Lancaster County. I've only visited this place once, but I've marked this one as one of my favorites simply because what's special about this place is the atmosphere and surroundings. This is a casual spot to meet up for a drink and a burger, in a unique brewery, surrounded by these giant beer tanks. Their menu features bangers and mash, NY strip steak, and bbq baby back ribs, to name a few.

The Log Cabin
An elegant restaurant in beautiful surroundings.
The building originally operated as a speakeasy during prohibition, and The Log Cabin officially opened as a fine dining restaurant in 1933. This is a restaurant in a unique and charming setting. The Log Cabin has 12 dining rooms and each of them is unique in both style and artwork.
Their dry-aged NY strip steak is outstanding, paired with one of their red wines. Riecine Chianti Classico from Tuscany is a good one. The prices are on the higher end, so this place is one you visit when you really want to treat yourself or your loved ones.

Fox Meadows Creamery
Yes, their ice cream is simply the best, but their food menu is also worth checking out.
Fox Meadows is a Creamery & Country Market right off West Main Street in Ephrata. When visiting, make sure to come hungry for both a meal and a dessert. Their menu features locally raised Stone Ridge Beef. The Stone Ridge Guacamole Bacon Burger with guac, bacon, swiss, mayo, green leaf lettuce, red onion, tomato on brioche roll is delicious. If you like sweet potato fries, you've got to try the Fox Meadows version.
