Golden Pheasant Inn Ratings and Reviews

This is my third time coming here, and each time it has been a great experience. I have brought my children, and they have been very accommodating. The service has been outstanding, paying attention to the littlest of details, and the brunch was great. All of our food was prepared well and we will be coming back. For the area, it is my favorite spot to dine.

My wife and I visited the restaurant after many great recommendations by numerous friends. It is a restaurant that I have always wanted to visit and it did not disappoint. Our waitress (Hannah) was tremendous and provided some terrific recommendations - if you are a lamb fan, the lamb shank is incredible, and my wife loved her scallops.
Further to the wonderful meal, the Inn is an actually working place to spend the night. While we did not have an opportunity to stay over - it will certainly be something that we make a point to do over the next few months.
It seems to have a repeat customer base (Frenchtown is right across the river) and the customers know all that work at the restaurant by name. It's a great place to try, as I believe you will find your way back. It's a little pricey, but for a special treat, it's well worth the $$$.

We visited the Golden Pheasant Inn on the Saturday before Valentines Day. Because of the holiday, it was busy but definitely not rushed. We had a lovely table for two by the window. It's spacious and you are definitely not on top of other patrons. The room was cozy with a fire in the fireplace. They offered a special prix fixe menu as well as the regular menu.
We started with a dozen fresh oysters which were probably the freshest I've had in Bucks County. The wine list is great and extensive and the markup is only about 2x so they don't try to gouge you.
The food was delicious. Salads are huge, so you can consider sharing. They are flexible with entrees so if you prefer different accompaniment, they even offer it.
Surprised we have lived in the are this long and have never been here before. We need to go back more often!

Have not been there in a bit but quality consistent as ever. Goof food and very good service. Wine list could use more selection priced between the cheaper, mass-produced junk and the high price bottles. But, nonetheless, we found a good value in a red wine. Will certainly return!

This was my first visit to Golden Pheasant. Unfortunately, it will also be my last. I took my GF there for a special occasion.
The ambiance is wonderful (and the only reason why this is not a 1 star review).
The service, however, was perfunctory and cold. Our server seemed disinterested from the beginning.
The food was dreadful. For starters, my GF's arugula, goat cheese and beet salad was so overdressed that she commented that she said it tasted like drinking pure vinegar. She only ate half of it. My butternut squash bisque (a special), was completely tasteless. I only ate two spoonfuls and left the rest. Despite both plates being barely eaten, our server cleared them and never asked if anything was wrong.
For entrees, my GF's pork chop was nicely cooked but severely under seasoned. She brought it to life with some salt and pepper but could not cure the barely cooked Brussels sprouts, which she left on the plate. My halibut entree was rancid and had to be removed from the table immediately as the smell was so offensive the table next to us noticed it. How that fish got past the kitchen is beyond me. The replacement salmon was slightly better but was mushy instead of flaky.
After this, we quickly asked for the check. During the course of our meal, no one from management came to our table to discuss the serious problems we encountered. That's a shame.

We often bring groups of friends for Sunday Brunch. In all but the worst weather, it is a pleasant place to sit and watch the river, enjoy the change of seasons and, of course, be able to rely on the great food! It's a local treasure.

What a lovely Sunday brunch in every regard! This charming venue features water views in a sunlit room also warmed by a fireplace. We thoroughly enjoyed the fixed price brunch menu that offered plenty of delectable choices and included champagne, soup or salad, main entree, and dessert. The food and presentation were exceptional, as was the service. We will return!

The food and service were very good; it's a classy place. A couple of things could be improved upon. 1) The mushroom soup was slightly underseasoned. Garlic? Onion? Savory herbs? A little something more would be good. 2) The beer I had, Troegs Mad Elf, is 11% alcohol, usually served in a 6-8 ounce glass, not a full pint 3) The salmon was superb, but served in a deep bowl which made it very hard to get to. Unnecessary and should be on a plate.

The food was great and the service was attentive. I find that I prefer veal chops thinner and I did not realize that "flat water" was actually bottled water at additional cost. I count that as a learning.experience for me and.give the meal a grade of A!

We shared our New Years Eve celebration with close friends and everyone at the Pheasant!
Oysters were excellent, as well as my fern salad and Salmon. Finished off the meal with the Creme Brulee and a glass of champagne.

What a great place to spend New Years. The food it out of this world along with the service
and the atmosphere. They always do a top rated job and because it was a holiday they never
raise the prices because of it. Way to go. Thanks and I'll be back next year as well with all of
the weeks in between.

Based on the reviews I'd read, I went in expecting an excellent meal and I was very disappointed. To be fair, the appetizers and cocktails were good. We ordered the cheese plate, charcuterie plate, and the French onion soup, and they were all well presented and delicious. The main courses, however, were disappointing. I ordered the halibut, which was tough and overcooked and didn't taste fresh. Normally I love halibut, but this was the worst I'd ever tasted. My husband ordered the steak, which was cooked to his liking based on the color, but he said it tasted like it had been sitting out under a heat lamp for a while so it seemed like it had dried out (which makes sense, because service was slow). My son had the mussels, which he said were good.
The service was very slow. We had one server for the entire solarium room, which was nearly full by the time we left (over 2 hours later). While our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and took her time to explain everything to us in detail, she was clearly overwhelmed by the amount of tables she had.
We did not order dessert because we had waited so long for our other courses. I will say that our server brought us glasses of champagne with the check since my husband had mentioned earlier in the evening that it was my birthday. I thought that was a very nice touch.
I don't know if I'd go back for dinner again, but the drinks and appetizers were good, so I might sit at the bar sometime and check out the pub menu. I wanted to love this place because it's so beautiful, but I didn't.

My husband and I enjoyed dinner with another couple on a cold December Friday night. We all started with different appetizers and everyone loved what they had from oysters to smoked trout. I had an excellent halibut dish for dinner.

chairs are way too deep and uncomfortable. brussels sprouts and turnips were seriously undercooked with the core still in the turnips! we recommend roasting them next time. scallops were excellent, pork was good.

Beautiful location overlooking the Delaware River and Canal, warm ambiance with fireplace crackling. Wait staff friendly and capable. Brunch consisted of Appetizer, Entree and Dessert with a glass of champagne to start. Salads were swimming in the balsamic dressing. Cream of mushroom soup must have been healthy, as no cream was used. My egg topped filet mignon was drenched in Bearnaise sauce, the petite filet, ordered medium to medium rare came out well done, tough and tasting strangely of liver. A smoked salmon benedict had cooked salmon, not the lox we expected, with tons of hollandaise sauce, which blanketed the two other eggs benedict orders. Chef needs to restrain himself on the sauces. Lemon sorbet very nice.

One of my favorite places to cap off a day in the country. Food is great and service very attentive. But, it's the atmosphere of an old country inn along the Delaware river that makes it worth the drive.

We just found this restaurant. It's north of New Hope PA. Great ride from Princeton area especially in Fall. The food is French/American, very fresh, tasty, presentation was great too. Staff knowledgeable, friendly but not imposing. The environment inside is spectacular, newly renovated and top quality as with everything else we experienced. And, they have a great wine list and a wood burning fireplace.
