Dinner in the Lancaster area on a Sunday night

I want to have dinner on Sunday night (Feb 26th) but the problem is that we can't attempt dinner until around 8:30. Many places are closing around 9 or closed on Sunday's. We will be in Willow Street and would like something nice and quiet. Upscale would be nice but not necessary.

  1. I've never been, but the restaurant at the Doubletree at Willow Valley says it is open daily until 11 p.m. In Lancaster City, The Pressroom, John J. Jeffries, and Iron Hill are all open until 9 on Sun. I think Gibraltar is as well, but their website is vague.

    Sunday nights are hard, good luck.

    1. You could try Pour on prince street in Lancaster. Website says kitchen closes at 9, but I think the bar might be open later than that. Great food, drink and atmosphere:

      1. Maybe head toward Harrisburg?

          We ended up with John J Jefries (one of 2 tables) First time there and loved the food. We will definatley be going again. Thank god for GPS, I'm not familiar with downtown Lancaster.

            Glad you enjoyed John J. Jeffries - my favorite dining spot in Lancaster these days. I've been hearing wonderful things about a newer place, Ma(i)son, but they aren't open on Sundays and we haven't gotten there yet.

              Ma(i)son is great, as is Jeffries. I had a hard time deciding between the two for a belated Valentines' dinner. Ended up going with Jeffries, but really want to get back to Ma(i)son soon. I love the fact you can bring your own wine to Ma(i)son. Frees up the budget for more food! My favorite dish at Ma(i)son was the Handmade Burrata. Split it with my wife, but next time I'm getting my own! I've been to Pour right down the street from Ma(i)son a couple of times and have really enjoyed it as well.
