We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the back outside terrace. Although it had been hot that day it was very comfortable on the terrace in the evening. A wonderful Summer evening. The atmosphere was lovely and the food good as usual. I treated myself to the surf and turf and substituted the fillet for the steak offered, it was offered to upgrade to the fillet. The fillet was delicious as was the lobster mac and cheese that accompanied the dish to make it surf and turf. My husband had the halibut and he loved it also. We shared the whipped feta cheese appetizer that came with pita bread and olives and that was delightful as well. Would recommend General Warren as usual. Has been my favorite Chester County Restaurant since I first had the pleasure of dining there in 1977. They have done a wonderful job with the front of their restaurant outside turning it into an outside dining area which is very charming. We ate there a few weeks ago, very nice. They have done great job dealing with the issues the restaurants are having lately. Definitely would highly recommend

Server was not wearing mask over her nose, when we ask that she do we were informed that she couldn’t and that we were a threat to her. We politely again requested full covering and were given another server who complied but original server continued to wait other tables with nose exposed.

General Warren Inn never disappoints! We went to celebrate my daughter‘s official graduation ceremony which was held on a Sunday night. We arrived at 9 PM for our reservation as scheduled and our waitress was outstanding! She never made us feel like it was time to leave or that she was rushing us out considering it was a Sunday night. Food was fabulous and service was even better! A perfect way to celebrate a much-awaited milestone!

I understand it's a trying time for going out but my wife and I decided to celebrate our 35th wedding anv. this weekend and knew that the General Warren Inn had a very nice outdoor area for dining. This was our first restaurant out in nearly three months. Our server was excellent but never introduced herself. Nor did the restaurant ever acknowledge our anniversary, even though I saw one table receive a desert with a candle and overheard the one person doing the seating, whose birthday is it? Was going to pass on this until receiving the bill and saw that the wine I ordered was more than what was listed, not a lot but still.... That's when I mentioned to our server our reason for coming to dinner. She did apologize for the wine mistake and not knowing about our special occasion, she did correct the billing issue and gave the desert to us. My suggestion is that the server should have asked - any special occasion but the restaurant should have told the server what we had listed on Open Table. It's that extra care that should be made during this time when people are venturing out after being home for several months. Again the meal was excellent but it just missed being something to be remembered!!!

We had a delightful time at General Warren celebrating my son-in-law's birthday.
The restaurant accommodated seating so that we were 6 feet apart from our guests. The food and service were fantastic.
The outside seating felt safe for our first time out since PA went to GREEN.
Gwen was out waitress and was outstanding.

We celebrated birthdays on the patio and it was the best outside atmosphere in the area. Our server, Heather, was so nice and had an excellent singing voice since she is an artist. The food was good and presented very nicely. Definitely worth a visit inside or out!

This was our first night out since the shutdowns and we did not know what to expect. We had a wonderful evening. The outdoor seating was magical and special. The lighting was creative and warm. There was a light breeze which kept us cool. The service was really good and we felt everyone was working together to make the night special. The Mojito Swordfish was really good and my husband made quick work of his lamb shank. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was my son's favorite and it was rich and creamy. Thank you for a great first night back out.

General Warren gave us an amazing Father's Day and Wedding Anniversary dinner! They have adjusted to COVID amazingly well. There was live music, tables and chairs scattered around the grounds and even corn hole while you wait! Our server, Heather, could not have been more attentive and the food was amazing!

Please support this wonderful Malvern institution!

It was so creative of General Warren Inn to turn the Valet area into a dining area. The road is quiet and I never noticed the flowers or foliage around that area. It was quite lovely. We also really enjoyed the updated menu. My shrimp was delicious and my husband really enjoyed the crab cakes. We look forward to going there again soon.
