In some of our recent blogs we’ve covered what Pennsylvania has to offer in the way of fall and winter activities, but what is there to do year-round? For starters, one can never go wrong with food; in fact, trying delicious cuisines and new yummy restaurants are a huge part of the vacation fun! Here at Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast we’ve put together a list of five of our favorite restaurants in the Carlisle area that we love to recommend to our guests.
Brick Kitchen & Bar –
Voted as a top new restaurant in the Harrisburg, PA area, the Brick Kitchen & Bar offers a wonderful menu that changes with the seasons. It’s the perfect spot for Happy Hour, a lovely night out for two, or even a relaxing solo lunch. With an outdoor heated tent, one can spend even the chilliest winter days outside dining on first-rate cuisine. The menu sports such things as tantalizing tempura shrimp, warm Fisherman’s Stew, vegan Impossible Burgers, & much more!

On a daily basis one can order juicy grilled salmon, roast duck, and other delicious cuts with the fish specials changing day by day. If dessert is on the menu, try their sumptuous peanut butter pie or sweet blueberry cheesecake with a scoop of fresh vanilla ice cream! And, of course, we can’t forget their list of fine wines to round out the perfect dinner.
