“Highly recommend Split Rail for dining and going out! More information from their website is below: "The Split Rail Tavern opened in July 2015 as a tavern for craft beer and cocktail enthusiasts, serving locally sourced food to locally expanding minds. Our bar features constantly rotating draft lines, wines on tap and classically oriented signature cocktails. Our kitchen focuses on locally sourced ingredients such as our 100% percent, grass fed burger from Dutch Meadow farms in Lancaster. With four seasonal menus and a daily special board the menu never gets old. ”
