Historic Revere Tavern
Our History: Dating back to 1740, this stone building, formerly called the "Sign of the Spread Eagle", was a "Stage Tavern". It was one of the better inns along the 62 miles of turnpike stretching from Philadelphia to Lancaster, and catered to the more prosperous class of travelers, providing him with accommodations suited to his means. Fine liquors and fine foods were served in generous portions to satisfy the hearty appetites generated by a long day in a rocking, jolting stagecoach. We continue that tradition!
Through the generations, the Revere Tavern has preserved this tradition of quality and abundance. Our family, the Cosgroves, have owned the property for over 54 years and we thank you for your business!

First time here and it certainly won’t be our last. We were impressed by the menu choices as well as the alcohol featured drinks. This may have been the best prime rib I’ve ever had and my girlfriend loved her mushroom ravioli. She also enjoyed the caramel apple sangria. I wish we could’ve tried their desserts but the meals were large and we left very happy. Looking forward to our next visit.
I have never been to this restaurant until last night (1/15/21) The place was very clean, the staff was basically friendly. Their wine list was minimal. The food was decent. I would say the brussel sprout vegetable special was very sweet which was a bit much. The filet I ordered was tender but a bit over cooked as I wanted medium rare. My husband had the tuna and said it was good.
Great for a date night! The food was fantastic and the service was quick. There is social distancing and respect for everyone during this time!
Anniversary Dinner. I had the thick prime rib and it was perfectly done with great seasoning. Au jus and horseradish sauce for dipping were awesome! Baked potato was good with asparagus that was done just right. Dessert cupcake was superb. My wife’s Chicken Chesapeake was excellent. Our server Angela was always there checking on us with another girl always keeping our water full. Our reception was here in their banquet room 38 years ago. That was awesome then and this was special now. Highly recommend this place if you have never been here!
Thank you so much for your kind review and for spending your Anniversary with us once again. Have a wonderful 2021 and we look forward to your next visit.
Seated next to a table with young children who were very loud which was annoying. Mashed potatoes were instant and horrible. Other food was good but not memorable. Glad they were open so we could pre-game on New Year’s Eve. We would definitely return for a future meal.
We do apoligize that you did not have a good experience. I have given your feedback to our kitchen. While I do apologize, our mashed potatoes are made fresh daily using only idaho potatoes, cream and butter and have never been instant. We do hope that you choose to dine with us again.
New Year dinner. Had shortribs , absolutely delicious. New York strip and stuffed shrimp were also served at our table. Everyone very satisfied with their meal. Ambiance very nice.
Thank you for dining with us and your five star review! We look forward to your next visit.
Wonderful place to eat. We had amazing service and the food was incredible. I would highly recommend this place
Thank you for the five star review! I will pass along your comments to our Chef. We look forward to your next visit.
Our experience at Revere for dinner was exceptional. We were seated by a cozy fireplace in a beautiful dining room. Christmas decorations were festive and the staff was courteous and knowledgeable. All three entrees were delicious! Not one complaint about anything! The chef did an excellent job with selection on menu and the prices were extremely reasonable. Would highly recommend this restaurant!
Very nice staff and helpful, great food and beautiful building.

Parents 60th wedding anniversary. Once the staff found out they went over and above.
Great place Great time.
We are so pleased your parents and your family enjoyed your dinner. Thank you for entrusting such a special day to us!
What a gem! While it’s local to me, I rarely dined there because it was off my beaten path. However, now that I’ve found it, this restaurant has quickly become a favorite! From being greeted like a dear friend when I walked in, to the dining room with the fireplace, to the attentive service and delicious food, my granddaughter and I enjoyed a lovely meal. The food was cooked perfectly and presented ‘tastefully.’ The wine list was adequate for my needs. What a delicious and relaxing experience.
Thank you so much for your five star rating! We love our locals and hope to continue to expand our local following. Again thank you so much for your review.
Waitress Bonnie was great. Mushroom soup has a large amount of real mushrooms in a soup spoonful. Great Ambience highly recommend

Had a wonderful time. Had a nice table in the bar totally set up for social distancing.
Wonderful service, friendly staff, great ambiance for a family get together. A top choice for us!
The food, service and ambiance was wonderful. It was my first time there and it was better than I expected.
We are also glad you enjoyed your meal! We look forward to your next visit.
First time, we loved the ambiance, it was quiet and we felt safe. The dinning room was large enough for our safety. The meals were more than we really want to eat and really good.
Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to your next visit.
Nice quiet evening with my wife and the food was great
We are so glad that you enjoyed your meal. We look foward to your next visit.
Always a great place to enjoy a great meal. Perfect for a dinner night with family and friends.
Thank you for your kind compliments. We look forward to your next visit.
We love the ambience especially when the fire is lit. The staff is all friendly and efficient. The food is delicious! What’s your favorite date spot when we are in town.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for being such a loyal customer.

Atmosphere was perfect. Staff was wonderful. Food was superb ! Can’t wait to return. Highly recommend.
Thank you for your kind review. We look for to your next visit.
A quality place to eat. The menu is fairly typical for a tavern, but the food is well prepared, the portions are generous and the prices are more than fair. Excellent service, too. and the atmosphere is comfortable.
Thank you for your kind review. We appreciate your business and support.
Great food and a super-great waitress. We will be back.
Thank you for your kind words. We will be sure to pass along your compliments to Bonnie.
I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. We shared the Boom Boom Shrimp appetizer, they were very good and I loved the Petite Filet Oscar. Service was well-timed and friendly.
Dinner was excellent. Had the salmon. Seared perfectly and the dill cream sauce definitely complimented it. Katrina, our server was professional, very cordial and most pleasant. So close to home. It's our Paradise Cheers! Love it!
Our family and staff love our customers! Thank you for your wonderful review and we thank you for all you do to support the Revere!!
We love this place! The bar area is so homey and cozy....sometimes we eat dinner in the bar area. We especially like the room across from the bar the best. The food is excellent. Was just there and had the amazing Mushroom Ravioli which was amazing and sinful. The pumpkin cupcake with a caramel center was to die for. You can't go wrong with The Revere Tavern........and of all things, it's in town of Paradise, PA!!!
On behalf of my family and our entire staff, thank you for your kind words! You have made my day!! We strive to do our best every shift and your review means the world to us! Tina
Service left a lot to be desired. The French onion soup was cold and had no flavor or onions in it. The rest of the meal of ok, way below expectations.
After I spoke to you about service and the french onion soup, I personally waited on you and your partner. You both told me you enjoyed your meals and left happy, so your review surprises me a bit. I would love for the both of you to come back when we are unmasked and can see our smiles. This is our family business and we take pride in our food and service. Tina
Historic tavern with great ambience and reasonable pricing, great service
Thank you for your wonderful review! My family and our staff appreciate your business and we hope to see you again! Tina
A fire in the fireplace would of been nice.It was a cool night.I was disappointed.Overall food was good.Onion soup and green beans were great.My steak was tasty but tough.
Thank you for your review. While we love to have the fireplaces on all the time, they actually omit quite a bit of heat so during the 70 degree days, we just can't light them.
Great service and food.
Have been going there for 33 years. The quality of the kitchen has been going down hill the past couple years. Not a fine dining restaurant anymore. They need to hire a better Chef or kitchen manager.
Food was excellent as was the service. Wasn’t thrilled to be in the “overflow” room as the ambience was that of a typical conference/banquet room. However, given the covid restrictions we understood and appreciated the space between tables. Will definitely be back!
Thank you for your review. Please make sure during your next visit that you make reservations as soon as you can to ensure the seating area of your preference.
Our party of 4 dined here before seeing the Magic Show nearby. Service and food were excellent. Only problem was not a proper amount of silverware at table. Had to ask for another fork after eating salad. Dining room was large and tables will spaced. However, if you want to enjoy the historical nature of the tavern, ask to sit in the old part of the tavern.
Thank you for your five star rating. Should you choose to visit us again during this "socially distancing time", please call for a reservation as soon as you can.
We always look forward to eating here because it is truly special. It would be a perfect place to go for an anniversary, birthday etc.
Thank you for the kind review! We look forward to your next visit.
The food was excellent the service was excellent . We ate outside because we haven’t eaten inside since COVID-19 was a little noisy by the road, But the food and the service canceled all that out would highly recommend
I will be sure to pass along your compliments to Sydney and our Chef. We look forward to your next visit.
I made my reservation 2 weeks in advance for a special occasion celebration requesting their best table in the beautiful dining room and when we arrived we were seated in their plain drab dining extension, very disappointed. Ths food was excellent, the service was very slow.
