OUR OUTDOOR SEATING IS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. Please cancel within 24 hours of your reservation, we are limited on our seating.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!!!

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.

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!

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.
