About the Penn Square Grille & Rendezvous Lounge
Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner in historic Downtown Lancaster, the Penn Square Grille & Rendezvous Lounge focuses on local sustainably produced food and the celebration of connections -- to the region through its offering of fresh local bounty, to a city via remarkable presence on Penn Square, and to a treasured past with the reemergence of this landmark setting. Both the bar and restaurant are designed to take full advantage of their noteworthy presence on historic Penn Square and reflect the elegance of the boldly reused Beaux-Arts façade of the former Watt & Shand Department Store. Glorious floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings, and distinctive décor provide a counterpoint of contemporary flair to the surrounding history. The 92-seat restaurant provides an additional 12-seat private dining room just adjacent to the expansive, 54-seat Rendezvous Lounge. The warm, carefully illuminated interior conveys refined style and comfort with polished dark wood millwork, custom designed banquettes and gracious seating.
