Lititz - General Sutter Inn

Went to the General Sutter in downtown Lititz with a vendor for dinner recently. We ate in the Tavern area, which was very quaint and comfortable. The first good sign - they had Warsteiner on tap!

Had the obligitory French onion soup (can't help myself), and it was some of the best I'd had in a while. Flavorful, not too salty, with a mild cheese.

For dinner, I had the beer battered scallops with a fantastic garlic sesame dipping sauce. The scallops were quite good, although due to a wide range in sizes, a few of the smallish ones were over-done. All in all, a fine dish though.

My guest had the ale battered fish and chips, also an excellent meal. A couple of oddities - the description said it would be sole - but it looked and tasted more like cod to us - no big deal I suppose. Also, a pet peave of mine - as many places do, they served one gigantic fried fillet. That leaves the outer portion dry and makes for awkward eating. To me, authentic fish and chips should be smaller, rectangular pieces. Anyway...

Desert at the General Sutter was fantastic. I can't remember what it was called, but their chocolate cake may have been the best I've ever had. Key Lime pie was also quite good.

2 soups, 2 meals, 2 beers, 2 deserts, = 45 bucks before tip.

I would certainly recomend the General Suttter in to just about anyone. They have several options - looks like the dining room is a bit more fancy and expensive.
