Steak
Since 1962, Ed Stoudt has provided guests with hand-cut aged steaks, fresh seafood and a few homemade German favorites. Our seasonal menus emphasize fresh, locally grown ingredients and artisan cheese and bread from our own bakery and creamery and feature weekend Chef's Specials.
Our award-winning, hand-crafted beers brewed fresh from our brewery next door are on draft. We have over 12 styles available year-round exclusively at our pub, including special firkins and small batch brewer’s reserve styles.
Decorated with Ed’s eclectic antique collections and personal aesthetic, our restaurant is a unique location for any dining occasion. We are a family friendly restaurant and welcome dogs in our patio area during the summer months.

We loved the food, the wait staff and the general setting. We came in hungry and left full and happy. Even though they ran out of most desserts, we are on a sugar diet so not going to ding them on that. The mix drink was strong and tasty and beer was perfect with my meal.

We loved the atmosphere and the steak! It was a unique and private setting for a date night and I am glad that we tried Stoudt's on a recommendation from a friend. We made reservations but that is not really necessary, which is sad, I would rather see this place thriving. It must be a best-kept secret!

Must have been an off night. Food cold and not cooked to specification. Only 2 desserts available on Saturday night @ 9 pm. Understand owner is looking to sell business. Maybe this is having an impact.

Meal was fantastic! Extensive, varying menu. Chose oysters as an appetizer - the only downside was their size, and difficult to consume. French Onion soup was delicious. For entrees, the cuts of steak were exquisite. Cooked properly to temp and full of flavor. Vanilla cheesecake and creme brule for desert were good choices. Overall, a great experience. Definitely recommend.

Beer was excellent! The food had the potential to be good, but my tacos were cold and the Mac and cheese serving size was tiny for $17. Not terrible, but low quality of food for the expensive prices.

It was Valentine’s Day and we went there for our date. We were there early enough in the night for the food items to not be completely out of stock. We waited 30 minutes just to get a beer. Every item we tried to order, was out and there was very limited items left. After not having many options, we left because in our time there we were also hearing about the horrible wait times tables were waiting for their food. We decided it just was not worth it.

Great entree and beer selection. We had reservations for 5 at 7 and we were seated at 7:30. It was a Saturday evening and it was very busy. The food was great as German selections go. The beer was good. Nice place. If you get a chance, go

Food was delicious but the service, beer, and decoration was subpar. I would recommend going before closing but it is just ok.

I ordered a Sout Stodts burger cooked medium well. I received a burger that was rare. I sent the burger back and the waitress returned with my half eaten burger that was microwaved, toppings removed, with a new bun. It was the most disappointing $19 burger I have ever eaten.

Really enjoyed the fried pickles but it’s disappointing that the soft pretzels are so often sold out. Our entrees were great (seafood pot and mushroom strudel) but the service, oh my. Waited a very long time for a house wine.

The hostess did not have our reservation in her book. I told her we booked with Open Table and I wanted to be sure I get credit for the visit. She seemed to care less about what I was saying. The weather was bad outside and there were only 5 tables being used, so it didn't really matter. The service, food and ambiance made up for the initial misunderstanding. We will visit again in the future.

It’s been 20 plus years since we have been here and it has definitely gone down hill! The water was disgusting....smelled like sewer water and tasted like it too! We were given bread but it definitely wasn’t Stoudt’s bread...it was thinly sliced white bread that had no taste. The table next to us definitely had Stoudts bread. Our steaks were good! French onion soup was not very tasty and the melted cheese on top smelled really bad!

Very surprising place to eat. What I thought was a steak house type, turned out to be a traditional german inn type of restaurant. From menu to decor to beer selections.

The food was good. Being that it was a Monday night I thought it would be slower at the restaurant. Sadly we waited along time for our server. We were going to order dessert but it just took too long and we had to leave

They were very nice, and understanding when there was a mix up with our friends. Food was good, my meal was just warm, I would have preferred.it a little hotter, and no I didn't complain and I can only speak for myself I did not ask anyone else about there meals. The room we were seated in was very eclectic. We enjoyed the decor. Overall experience was good. I will definitely give it another try!!!

Two of us had dinner on Friday night and lunch around 1pm on Saturday. Both meals were well presented and delicious. The crab cake was very tasty on top of lots of fresh corn and several fingerling potatoes. And the tower of vegetables dinner entree was very filling. At lunch, we both had a well done bratwurst and sauerkraut with excellent mustard. One of us had very good coleslaw, the other very good potato salad. Server was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Warm and receptive hospitality from all employees. A very enjoyable experience.

Beer was excellent with several IPA options. Crab dip was the best we have had in Lancaster with loads of lump crab. Both the steak and the tuna was sizable, delicious and presented well. We will definitely return.

We enjoyed our visit to Stoudts this past Tuesday. We made a reservation in that area to meet friends of ours traveling from NJ and us from Central Pennsylvania. It basically takes us both 2 to 2 1/2 hours to drive from our home to meet each other. We try to do this once a month and keep changing restaurant. We haven't visited any restaurant again yet but have decided that we would revisit Stoudts. Our meeting was for a Tuesday, which is typically when they are closed, but as luck would have it they agreed to open for another large party so allowed us to make a reservation for 5 of us. It was very quiet and the wait and management staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Thanks so much for making our evening very special and enjoyable.

We waited over a half hour to see a waitress after being seated, took even lo nger to get drinks from the bar, apparently the bartender needed clarification from me about one of your house cocktails. Our calamari appetizer was nothing but breading with a few pieces of calamari in it, my husband's sandwich was room temperature and the cheese was not melted. We were very dissatisfied with the service and the food. We will not be going back. Loren McHugh

We ate at 7:30 in the dining room, a booth. There was live music in the bar which was nice( to be away from). Steaks for both of us were done perfectly, mashed potatoes are strangely wonderful. Service was not timed well, as entree arrived soon after the salad while we were still working on that course. Nice night, not busy. Our second visit in a few months, so that is an indicator. Wine bottles reasonably priced!
