NOW OPEN Under New management The Log Cabin was built out of oak logs from the surrounding Lehoy Forest on a site once occupied by the Nanticoke Indians. It began life in 1929 as a speakeasy tavern, becoming a restaurant when the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution put an end to the Prohibition era in 1933. Surviving through the Depression and then World War II, the restaurant flourished for over 80 years, first under the ownership of the Leicy family and then by well-known local artist and restauranteur, Charles “Charlie” DiSantis. Charlie added 10 new dining rooms and turned The Log Cabin into Lancaster’s foremost fine-dining establishment before his retirement in 2008. Two years later, local businessman Kirk Liddell and his family picked up where Charlie left off, committing themselves to taking the restaurant to a whole new level of great food, charm and service excellence. Besides its renowned Main Dining Room and a variety of attractive private dining and meeting areas, The Log Cabin now features an elegant Tavern Room with a curved soapstone bar, a comfortable Speakeasy Piano Lounge, and a warm Garden Room opening onto an outdoor dining area. Adding to the ambiance is The Log Cabin’s valued art collection, highlighting both historic and modern works of art, now joined by other paintings and music offered by various local artists and performers. Best of all, well-known Executive Chef Steve Painter and Five-Star General Manager Adam Hall have brought their energies and talents to The Log Cabin. They are supported by an outstanding culinary and service staff dedicated to high-quality performance and warm hospitality. Delicious steaks, seafood and other classic choices highlight the menu, which includes tasty farm-to-table creations, small and large plates, and a variety of flavorful dietary options. An exceptional wine and beverage program complements the food offerings and adds to the gaiety. It all combines to make a wonderfully fresh take on a Lancaster tradition. Hope to see you soon at the “Cabin!”

Restaurants with a “Side” of History Cuisine, of course, is what draws people to restaurants. It could also be said that a restaurant’s ambiance serves as an allimportant side dish. In Lancaster County, that equates to history, as its namesake city, small towns and country roads are home to restaurants that are located in centuries-old buildings. By Briana W. Hess

If historic ambiance is what you crave, Lancaster County can surely provide the cure for your hunger pangs. What follows is information about 13 area restaurants whose menus feature a serving of history. Stockyard Inn, Lancaster: 1750 General Sutter Inn, Lititz: 1764 Pour Girls, Quarryville: 1765 The Greenfield Restaurant & Bar, Lancaster: 1780s Railroad House Inn, Marietta: 1823 Horse Inn, Lancaster: 1850s Tobias S.

Railroad House Inn

B

Beyond the banks of the Susquehanna River lies the town of Marietta. Once a river crossing known as Anderson’s Ferry, the small town blossomed after the construction of the Pennsylvania Canal, which boosted the area’s economy and helped to establish mills, lumber yards and shops. The arrival of the railroad helped to bring prosperity and survival to Marietta, which played a key role in pre-industrial America. Timber and pig iron were the backbone of the area’s local economy. Various taverns began to spring up and aid toward the progression of the town. One such tavern was the Railroad House Inn, built in 1823 and known during that era as a lodging site for canal workers. After the railroad was constructed, the venue slowly morphed into a gathering place of sorts. According to co-owner Joey Bowden, it served as the “centerpiece” of the town. “At the time, there was no railroad depot, so it served as the train station. The standardizing of time came through the railroads because if you missed the train, it could send your whole day off,” Joey shares. “So, a lot of times, people would just come here early and hang out.”

The Railroad House Inn’s main dining room combines steampunk with historic charm.

With the introduction of the steel industry came the collapse of a thriving town. “As soon as steel came into fashion, the whole town of Marietta really suffered,” says Joey. The local gathering place eventually transitioned to a family residence and then to a restaurant when Marlin McConnell, a former owner, took the helm. Later, Frank Westenhoefer and John DeVitry, a notable architect, took ownership and established the cellar portion that lies beneath the Railroad House. “DeVitry is the one who dug out that cellar bar by hand, which was essentially just a crawl space prior to that. He put in concrete flooring and crafted about an 8-foot ceiling, which is pretty rare for a building of this age,” Joey explains. From a psychedelic coffee house to a disco, the Railroad House has undergone a plethora of transformations that was associated with its change in use. It also passed through a number of owners, including Donna and Rick Chambers, Raphael Aguon and Douglas Fox, and current lease holders Eric Farr and Tracy Beam, who took ownership in 2008. “We’ve kind of worked hand in hand with them. We didn’t really want to take over the rooms at the time; we wanted to focus

primarily on the food and entertainment side of everything,” Joey explains. “So, it worked out great that we could formulate this partnership.” Then the unthinkable happened: The flood of 2011 (caused by Tropical Storm Lee) “shuttered” the building. From October 2011 to October 2014, the Railroad House sat silent. Architecturally, the two massive posts that balance the center of the main dining room, a large cabinet that rests in its corner and the first-floor fireplaces are the only items that remained in the vacant spaces when renovations began. The cellar endured 95% of the damage from the muddy river waters. Joey says every nook and cranny was cleaned over with a “fine-tooth comb,” and upgrades followed shortly after. “Luckily for us, the copper bar that was there since the ‘60s was in good shape,” Joey shares. The renamed Perry Street Cellar was outfitted with new wiring, which is hidden behind a bulkhead bar fashioned from old apple crates, a pool table and a live entertainment area. The cellar menu focuses on craft beer and pub fare, which includes

“amazing” burgers made from organically raised, grass-fed beef from nearby Drager Farms. Upstairs, the floors were sanded to create a more historic appeal. The Brodbeck Room was painted and designed with the help of friends and family. While cleaning the cellar, the crew found various signs that had either been on the building at one point or were associated with the town. One specific sign was the Brodbeck Blacksmith Shop; however, the sign was cut in half and only the word “Brodbeck” remained. This room, designed in colonial style, also accommodates private parties. As for the main dining room, a steampunk-look emerged thanks to aged gears and antique finds. “The idea was to be a little bit whimsical but not to the point that it seemed like a theme restaurant,” Joey says of the restaurant’s train car influence. Joey and co-owner Freddy States wanted the atmosphere to be “industrial without feeling industrial.” The restaurant’s menu centers on upscale fare, or as Joey calls it “innovative comfort food.” He continually praises Chef Talon Lewis for his creativity in the kitchen.

purveyors – such as Lancaster Central Market, Drager Farms, and Lehman’s Farms in Wrightsville – along with seasonal changes, allow the Railroad House’s menu to stay fresh and evolve consistently. “We want to focus on seasonality. No matter what season you come here, you’re going to like the food, and we’re confident of that,” he says. “We tried to create two identities within the same space,” he continues, referring to both the restaurant and the cellar menus, “and it seems to have gone over well.” Also of note are the restaurant’s seasonal beer dinners and Sunday brunch, which Joey says tripled in attendance last summer due to the opening of the Northwest River Trail. “Our intention is only to change Marietta for the positive and to start bringing small business back, and hopefully get to a point where Marietta can look at itself as a weekend destination with the restaurants, B&Bs, the rail trail that just opened and the river.” The Railroad House Inn is also tapping into the wedding scene. The restaurant already has bookings sprinkled in for May through October this year. For now, Joey says smaller scale weddings (approximately 60 people) are ideal for the venue. “I think the Railroad House fits a middle ground for people who love food, but it also crosses lines with people who love history,” Joey says, “and we’ve tried to merge those things together so that we have this great historic space with food that fits for modern times. Not necessarily trendy, per se, but definitely trying to keep up with what people are wanting.” The Railroad House Inn/Perry Street Cellar. 280 W. Front St., Marietta.

Bube’s Brewery was originally built over a natural cave in the 1860s. The cave was then expanded, and the Catacombs’ lagering cellars (vaults) were created. Above the cellars, a larger brewery was constructed, along with the Central Hotel. Current owner Sam Allen purchased the brewery complex in 1982 and opened it to the public shortly thereafter. After a long hiatus, Bube’s Brewery began brewing beer again in 2001. Today, Bube’s Brewery houses various restaurants, catering facilities, live entertainment and offers exciting events throughout the year.

Current owners David Zahm and Sherry Landis completely restored the property and now offer guests fabulous food and beverages in the restaurant and comfortable rooms upstairs (The Inn at Bully’s).

By 1912, the hotel’s new owner was William C. Lefevre, who went to great lengths to accommodate those passing through. The hotel was then owned by Bob Frey, local legend who helped to lead Manheim over Red Lion in the baseball game of 1921. Now current owners David Matos, who has been in the restaurant industry for 31 years, his wife Melissa and son Tyler carry on the tradition of great food, drinks and service.

History: The farmhouse that is now home to Tobias S. Frogg was built by Henry S. Gamber in 1858, which is detailed by a stone plaque that sits in the end wall between the two windows on the second story.

History: Built as a farmhouse in 1750, the Stockyard Inn was the northernmost settlement in colonial Lancaster. President James Buchanan was its most famous owner, purchasing the farmhouse in 1856 and keeping it throughout his time in office. The Pennsylvania Railroad bought the property from Buchanan in 1864, and the surrounding land was reserved to develop a stockyard along the railway’s main line. The Lancaster Stockyards were founded in 1895 and thrived as the livestock trading capital of the East for the next 80 years. The cattlemen saw no reason to look further for shelter and food; therefore, the original farmhouse came to be known as the Stockyard Inn. James “Jimmee” Fournaris purchased the Stockyard Inn in 1952; the Fournaris family continues to own and operate the restaurant, which remains one of the oldest, continuously operating steakhouses in the nation.

Dining and drink menus available online. Entire menu is available for take-out.

The State of Brewing in Lancaster County

By Michael C. Upton

The first German immigrants to Lancaster County settled Conestoga (1709), the fourth such settlement in Pennsylvania. They brought with them hope for religious tolerance, a yearning for a better life and specific, unique tastes for food and drink. As German families began to flood the area, a new demand was created. German-Americans wanted beer! Lancaster is a uniquely shaped county, making it a bit hard to nail down what is exactly north, west and east (south is pretty obvious, but also devoid of a brewery since the trend-setting Spring House Brewing Company moved its production to Lancaster City). Trying to be as geographically relevant as possible, I’ve come up with four brewing regions: North & West, The Old East, Far West and The City.

North & West

Appalachian Brewing CompanyLititz 55 N. Water St., Lititz. Abcbrew.com ABC employs adaptive reuse of buildings when looking to create a brewpub. One of six throughout Central PA, the Lititz location transformed a brick warehouse into a stunning piece of wood-framed art. There are eight flagship brews constantly on hand, which are complemented by a seasonal calendar of beers like porters, hefeweizens, and a set of great fall brews like Rutty Buck Pumpkin Ale and Batch No. 666 Halloween Beer. Standout brew: Greenaway Farm Fresh Hop Pale Ale.

JoBoy’s Brew Pub 27-31 E Main St., Lititz. Joboysbrewpub.com Known for its authentic, Southern-style barbecue as much as its beer, JoBoy’s was founded by Jo and Jeff “Boy” Harless in Manheim. The popularity of the product the Harlesses were putting out led them to look for a bigger location. They purchased the historic Rudy building to create a blues-themed restaurant and brewery.  Standout brew: Gose

Mad Chef Craft Brewing 2023 Miller Rd., East Petersburg. Madchefcraftbrewing.com Greg Kendig, Francisco Ramirez and Gary McVaugh opened Mad Chef in July 2015. Beyond brewing an assembly of traditional styles, the folks at Mad Chef have recently whipped up a sour, a Schwarzbier and even a sugar-free beer. The eatery is also known for its selection of dipping sauces for its Pommes Frites. Standout brew: F-18 IPA

Moo-Duck Brewery 79 S. Wilson Ave., Elizabethtown. Mooduckbrewery.com Kristen and Mike Brubaker have a passion for both brewing and giving back to the community. Each month or two a beer is designated as a charity beer. Having opened in November 2014, Moo-Duck’s flagship brews are Hoppy Toad IPA, Purple Carp Irish Red, Mistopheles, The Remedy, and The Great 38. Thanks to its Crowler machine, Moo-Duck has now joined the trend of small breweries selling 32-ounces of fresh, draft beer in a can. Standout brew: She’ll Never Let Us Call It That

SBC Brewsmiths 2775 Lebanon Rd., Manheim. Sbcbrewsmiths.com Named after the largest of the three

22 - 2017-18 Dining in Lancaster County

breweries involved, this co-op produces beer for Swashbuckler Brewing Company on the grounds of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, Divine Swine Brewing Company in Manheim, and Rumspringa Brewing Company in Bird-in-Hand. Standout brew: Coffee Cider

Bube’s Brewery 102 N. Market St., Mount Joy. Bubesbrewery.com Pronounced boob-e, this multifaceted brewery has been a Lancaster County staple for years, hosting events like murder mystery dinners in its catacombs. Visitors simply need to ask to get a tour of the lager-era brewery. Standout brew: Habanero Pale Ale  

Cox Brewing Company 276 Heisey Quarry Rd., Elizabethtown. Coxbrewingcompany.com Founded by proud veterans and lifelong friends Nick Cox and Tim Kreider, this E-town microbrewery offers three flagship brews: Liberty Lager, 82nd Amber Ale, and CH-47 IPA. With a focus on the military, Cox donates a portion of money earned from its military branded beers to veterans’ organizations. Other than their tasting room, Cox beers can be found at a handful of clubs around the county. Standout brew: Devil Dog Dunkelweizen

Funk Brewing Company 28 S. Market St., Elizabethtown. Funk-town.com Funk decided to expand to E-town with its second location because the owners saw an opportunity. The local beer scene is growing. Co-owner Jon “Norm” Norman should know; he lives in E-town. Along with some delicious seasonals, the tap room offers Funk’s flagship brews: Citrus IPA, Efflorescence (a Belgian Saison with hibiscus flowers), Fuego pale ale and South Mountain Stout. Standout brew: White Christmas  

The Old East

Stoudt’s Brewing Company 2800 N. Reading Rd., Adamstown. Stoudtsbeer.com Along with her husband Ed, the Queen of Hops – Carol Stoudt – opened Stoudt’s in 1987, long before small breweries were such a hit. (Stoudt’s is the reason why the “old” is in the Old East.) Inspired by traditional German beers, the Stoudts have become a respected force in the brewing industry and hold themselves – and their beers – up to high standards. Stoudt’s offers five flagship brews and a slew of seasonals, reserves and big beers. Standout brew: Pils


Union Barrel Works 6 N. Reamstown Rd., Reamstown. Unionbarrelworks.com The high ceilings of this former hardware store not only lend beauty to this restaurant/brewery, but also allow space for fermenters and mash tuns. Owners Tom and Amy Rupp began brewing in this tiny borough in April 2007. While Tom loves his malt, he had to eventually brew an IPA because of demand. UBW offers a variety of classic brews like kolsch, lager and pilsner, but also excel at darker styles, too. Standout brew: Wobbly Bob

Black Forest Brewery 301 W. Main St., Ephrata. Blackforestbrewery.net Black Forest is the result of a dream hatched while Bob Harter was hiking the trails of the Black Forest in southwest Germany. Years later, in 2014, Bob and his wife, Denise, opened a quaint, uberfriendly brewery on the premises of their 1777 Americana Inn Bed and Breakfast. Black Forest has a constant selection of small batch brews in a range of styles. Standout brew: J.G. Belgian Strong Ale

St. Boniface Craft Brewing Company 1701 W. Main St., Ephrata. Stbonifacebrewing.com In 2011, Mike Price and Jon Northup started St. Boniface Craft Brewing Company in a former shoe factory in downtown Ephrata. Due to growth, the company moved to its current location, which formerly was a milk processing facility. Dain Shirey came on as a co-owner. The brewery is named after the 7th century patron saint of brewing, Saint Boniface. Standout brews: Paideia, Libation, Hegemony, and 3 lb. IPA

Far West Columbia Kettle Works 40 N. Third St., Columbia. Columbiakettleworks.com Owners Rod Smith and Bill Collister set up the brewery in 2014 at the former United Telephone Company building. The pair brew twice a week to keep up with demand. Kettle Works does not have a lineup of flagship brews, instead choosing to rotate a selection of styles interspersed with seasonal and one-shots. Regulars to the list include a traditional German pilsner; a big, full bodied Russian Imperial Stout; SamuraiPA; and a Beechwood smoked chocolate porter. In 2015, sixth generation brewer Chad Rieker joined the Kettle Works team; he and Rod add five new beers to the 10-tap system each month. Standout brew: Bill says several new beers are introduced each month. The brewery brings back beers each year that were best received by their customers, but they don’t consider any of them a favorite since the recipes are so diverse and cover a variety of beer styles and people’s tastes.

Standout brew: Helles Lager

Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant 781 Harrisburg Ave., Lancaster. Ironhillbrewery.com This semi-chain hosts 12 locations throughout three eastern states. Lancaster got its location on College Row in 2007, and it has been a hit with locals and tourists (especially those visiting F&M College). Although the flagship brews like Iron Hill Light Lager and Pig Iron Porter are brewed at Iron Hill’s main brewing facility, brewmasters at each location create seasonals and special one-offs. Standout brew: Starry Night Saison (if they ever decide to make it again!)

Pig Iron Brewing 40 E. Front St., Marietta. Pigironbrewingco.com The smallest of my designated beer regions of Lancaster County includes only one other beer maker. Formerly known as the River St. Café, Pig Iron opened in 2016 by brewer Bob Helm. Pig Iron usually has three of their own beers on tap alongside standard bar offerings like Miller and Coors. The neighborhood-style saloon also taps other craft brews. Standout brew: Cream Ale

The City

Wacker Brewing Company 417 W. Grant St., Lancaster. Wackerbrewing.com The Lancaster original is back. Bryan

Kepner and Michael Spychalski (brewmaster) opened the Little Dutch Taproom above their brewing space inside a former downtown tobacco warehouse in June 2015. Their intent was to revive one of Lancaster’s original brands – Eagle Brewing. Lancaster’s earliest brewery, this historic beer is now the namesake of Joseph Wacker, who purchased Eagle Brewing from the Sprenger family in 1870.

Lancaster Brewing Company 302 N. Plum St., Lancaster. Lancasterbrewing.com One of the first to bring brewing back to the county! Who remembers when it was LMB (Lancaster Malt Brewing) and not LBC when beer lovers celebrated the return of brewing to the city? I do; I had just turned 21 and immediately fell in love with the Milk Stout. The destination brewery is a site to behold, with diners able to view the inner workings of the brewing process from the second-floor perch.

in 22 states. They have six breweries nationwide and brew their flagship brews primarily in Reno, Nevada and Temple, Texas. Their Lancaster location opened in June 2016. BJ’s keeps 11 of their beers on tap continually and offers a couple of seasonal selections throughout the year. Standout brew: A flight of four 5-ounce pours

Fetish Brewing Company 325 Ice Ave., Lancaster. Facebook. com/Festishbeer Rounding out all things brewing in the county is another one of my favorites. Tucked into a tiny side street, Fetish is a little different, as it’s a membersupported brewery. Every Friday, Mike Simpson, Aaron Risser and Brandon Stetser get together to concoct brews with names like Peppercorn, Bumble and Pilgrim. This beer is more than just names. These guys are putting out some of the best beer in the county. While there is no longer a tasting room at the brewery, Fetish beers for non-members can be found at the beer mecca known as The Fridge. Standout brew: Wild American Dark

Spring House Brewing Company Spring House Brewing Company, 209 Hazel St., Lancaster. Spring House Taproom, 25 W. King St., Lancaster. Springhousebeer.com

BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse

Matt Keasey started Spring House Brewing Company with his wife, Nikki, in 2000 at their farmhouse in Conestoga. Eventually, he opened the downtown Spring House Taproom. The popularity of the brand reached beyond Lancaster and brought in more and more fans, so he moved the brewing site to the city in 2015. Spring House offers year-round brews, such as Seven Gates, Astounding She-Monster, Big Gruesome, and Lexicon Devil. Seasonal brews range from passive to demented, like Diabolical Doctor Wit, Two Front Teeth Holiday Ale, and The Martians Kidnap Santa!.

925 Plaza Blvd., Lancaster. Bjsrestaurants.com

Standout brew: Big Gruesome Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout

Standout brew: Milk Stout, but the Strawberry Wheat is pretty popular, too!
