Restaurant: Huckleberry’s Restaurant and Tavern
Date: May 3, 2016
Location: 1 Hartman Bridge Road, Lancaster, PA
You may be well aware of my intense loathing for eating at hotel restaurants. I begrudgingly went along in Connecticut because all my previous experiences had been sub-par. I’ve been staying at the Fulton Steamboat Inn for as long as I can remember (more on that in a few days). To me, it is a destination in itself and the only place I will stay in Lancaster. It has always had a restaurant/bar component. I remember the early days when the restaurant was the Robert Fulton Room and the bar was named the Clermont Lounge. It was your typical hotel fare. Dinners should have been ordered on an emergency basis only (like being stranded in a snowstorm). The Clermont, however, was classy. Drinks were adequately priced for what you would expect, and the atmosphere was worth sitting there alone. A few years ago, though, the hotel gave up control of the eateries and they are now independently owned within the Fulton Steamboat. What a difference it makes.
