Lancaster area riverfront?

Hello All -

Two questions, and thanks in advance. First, I was at a place last summer, just outside Lancaster, which served dinner on a large patio overlooking a small river, near a bridge, I think. Food was decent, atmosphere pleasant. There was a bar outside, too. I can't remember the name or where it was. Anyone know the place?

Second, I will be back in the area with my wife and 15 year old daughter to drop my daughter off at camp. Can anyone recommend an interesting place for dinner?

    Probably is "The Cove". It used to be the "East of Eden" and is on Millcross Road, just off Route 23 (New Holland Pike). They have a very nice, large deck that overlooks the Conestoga River.

        What's been your experience with the food there?

          We went to the Cove last summer and it was great, wonderful atmosphere, good seafood and salads. I was shocked to find waterfront dining in Lancaster. It is way off the beaten path, though.

          Sounds like The Conestoga, 1501 E. King St., serving decent food and drink since 1741, as they say.

            Thanks, but that wasn't it. It was further out of town, bordering on an "upscale" suburb, near a country club, I think.
