First time dining. Seemed small but the service and food quickly made me forget about the tight quarters. Food was delicious. We were celebrating a birthday and were brought a dessert to sing to our guest with. It was a really cozy feeling. Would definitely recommend dining here.

We all loved our meals. Menu was very interesting and had something for all. Bar maid and waitress were so welcoming and informative. The dining rooms looked great. We will certainly stop in again during the week when not so busy. Highly recommend for a great dinner and nice atmosphere.

My friend said it was the best meal he'd had in a long time. The hostess moved my reservation up so we could get to the show next door on time. Great job!

The food is great and worth the price.
It is a nice place for dinner before or after a show at the theatre.

Ambiance is nice, food was great, but came out much to quickly after getting my appetizers, felt more like fast-food instead of a dining experience.

Food & service was great as usual. Regular menu items are always great but look forward to see what are the entree specials. This visit they included Fish & Chips & Corned Beef. Do not pass on the opportunity for these specials. Bar makes an awesome Italian Margarita!

The service staff was very friendly and acco odating. The ambiance was superior. The taste of my salmon entre was superb: cooked perfectly. My only disappointment was that there was little or no side vegetable...at least a spring mix salad would have sufficed given the price of this dinner entre.

Given our first dining experience, we will definitely return for another tasty meal.

We always eat at The Washington House when heading to a concert at Sellersville Theatre. Never disappointed, although I wish you had Scallops as an Appetizer. Surf and Turf is good, but only 2 Scallops are offered. I would rather have more Scallops alone or maybe with a sauce, maybe like 4 or 5 Scallops.
They were offered as a special at one time when we went.

Margaritas are good, but I wish you offered flavored Margaritas as well.

Thank you for your suggestions! We always appreciate constructive advice and will consider how we can offer more fun margarita choices.

Nice location adjacent to the Sellersville Theater. Old fashioned inn with a nice menu selection.
We got the Sunday Brunch and our choices were good; we got our desserts "to go" as we were full. They were delicious eaten later! The nearby bar was busy and seemed to be a nice local place to hang out.

I had gumbo. Excellent. Wife had scallops
Appetizer. Cornbread w/ sauce not so good, scallops good. For entree I had bourbon pork loin. Excellent. Wife had lamb bolognese, very good, noodles were excellent. For dessert we shared the rum raisin apple crisp. Very good, not exceptional. The house coffee was exceptional. Overall the scallops appetizer needs work.

The food was excellent, from our salads to the entrees. We arrived to a very crowded pre-show Washington House, but settled in quickly at the bar for a cocktail. Upon being seated we enjoyed good service and dining experience. While we did have an issue with one of the entrees that came out, they promptly addressed it. We'd visit again.

Food was fantastic! Valentines weekend so very crowded. Lovely table by the windows. Very cozy but sadly cold as the temperature was frigid.

My wife and I had an 8:45 PM reservation this past Valentine's Day. Overall, the experience was pleasant. We arrived at 8:20 and the Hostess told us we had to wait for the them to seat the 8:30 guest. My wife and I waited until 8:45 and no one came to get us. So, we returned to the hostess stand and were told that the tables were being prepared. As I looked around there were plenty of open tables. The vibe we got from the 2 hostesses was a cold as the frigid 19-degree temperature outside. The service was slow even though the restaurant did not seem busy. My soup was only warm and tasted like canned soup. My tea was also warm and had to ask for hot water. The portions were small and the time between servings was painful. My 14 oz NY Steak was well-done vs. Medium and the steak knife provide was more like a dull butter knife. We both drank our glasses of water and were never offered more. Other than that, we enjoyed each other’s company being it was our 33rd wedding anniversary.
