Friendly's Ice Cream: nice restaurant....
We had had a huge lunch so we skipped supper and stopped in the restaurant just for ice cream. They had a tremondous assortment of ice cream products and flavors from which to choose. They had something called a Fribble (heavy duty milk shake) which I did not take although it looked good. I opted for an old fashion rootbeer float (root beer soda, scoop of ice cream, dollop of whip cream, long handled spoon in tall glass). My wife eyed the banana split and mentally counted the calories and went for the ice cream sundae with cherry on top instead.
This was a full service restaurant, but you will have to look at the menu on the website below to see what they offer for lunch and dinner (we were there only for the ice cream).
The decor is modern diner in red and white with both booths and tables as well as a few counter stools. The prices for the ice cream were reasonable and the portions were generous.
We did not ask for much so I can't say much about the service except that it was quick.

Lone Star Steak House: filling.....
We stopped in here for lunch (we have had dinners at these places in other cities before).
If you don't want beef, don't stop here because most of the menu is beef.
But if you do like beef, you can't ask for a better cut nor can anyone prepare it any better.
For Lunch, I went for the Chicken Caesar and it was okay. My wife went for the Open Steak Burger with bacon and bleu cheese and it was delicious. Add in a cup of coffee and an iced tea and tax and tip and you have spent $25 for lunch. Not cheap by any means but very filling (we skipped dinner and had some ice cream at one of the places down the road).
Decor is heavy dark wood with fencing between bar area and dining area. Booths and tables with red/white checkerboard covers. Good fast service and they always ask "is everything all right?" just about when you have taken a big bite of food.
Like I said, we have been to these places many times and the food is never disappointing as long as you order beef.

Handel's Ice Cream: I Scream. You Scream. We all Scream for ice cream!
If you're in the mood for wonderful ice cream and you also have time to stand in line then Handel's Homemade ice cream is for you! Handel's has tons of homemade flavors that it will take you a lifetime to try all of them.
It's best to check out the flavor board ahead of time before getting in the line. I'm not kidding. Every night of the week the line is at least 25 people long.
Favorite Dish: The coffee chocolate chip is my favorite.
Windows on the Greens: Champagne Buffet
Whether you have a special occasion to celebrate or simply want to enjoy a Sunday brunch, the Windows on the Greens is a wonderful choice.
Sunday Brunch is served from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. You really should make reservations. You can get the buffet with or without champagne. My family usually goes around 11:30 and asks for Mimosas (OJ and champagne).
Favorite Dish: The entire buffet is terrific. You can choose from cold salads to entrees (seafood, beef, ham, etc.) The desserts are all wonderful. There is an egg station where a server cretaes any egg breakfast dish you can ask for.
Try the Eggs Benedict.
The Accomac Inn: French Gourmet
If you are looking for a romantic setting for a special dinner you wikll want to head straight for the Accomac Inn. The Inn was constructed in 1775 and you feel as though you step back in time when you are seated in one of the 5 private dining rooms or in the Queen Anne Dining Room.
Finding the Accomac is tough. It's situated on the river and you need to follow signs down twisting country roads.
Monday - Saturday: 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Sunday Brunch: 11:00 am to 2:30 pm
Sunday Dinner: 4:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Coomb's Tavern: A Town Secret - Steak and Seafood
This is one restaurant that you will not want to miss on your travels through York. Coomb's is weak on ambiance but BIG on taste! The restaurant has the best steaks and prime rib imaginable. The waiters and waitresses are all friendly and you never feel rushed. There is a bar where locals come to hang out. Order a Long Island Ice Tea and sit back and enjoy.
Reservations are usually a good idea.
Favorite Dish: Prime Rib
Shangrila: Spicy is the Way to Go!
I dine at Shangrila at least once a week. It is my favorite chinese restaurant in York. The food is exceptional and on those nights when I need a fast meal, the take-out is speedy.
Favorite Dish: All of the chicken dishes are great. My favorites are the Firecracker Chicken, Szechuan Chicken, Chicken with Mixed Vegetables (and have them make it in spicy garlic sauce). The beef with scallions is great.
Spring rolls and wonton soup are very good. Grab an order of Crab Rangoon for $3.95 and you all all set.
The Roosevelt Tavern: Steakhouse and Seafood in One Great Spot
The Roosevelt Tavern is a full service casual, leisure dining restaurant serving Prime Rib, Steaks and Seafood. The restaurant is located four blocks from the square in downtown York, PA. With plenty of Free Lighted off Street Parking.
The cream of crab soup is beyond compare. You will also receive a small decanter of sherry to pour into the soup. Be sure to do this as it will set off the flavors.
Years ago the dress for the restaurant was much more formal than it is today. Most outfits are acceptable now.
Favorite Dish: Veal Oscar
Sautéed, then Covered with White Asparagus, Deviled Crabmeat, and Béarnaise Sauce 19.99
Best Italian around: Sam & Tony's
Ross and Libbie Falzone are the owners of this fabulous Italian restaurant. Sam and Tony's is located right downtown off of Market Street. The dining room is tastefully decorated and the service is beyond compare.
There are two best seats in the house. Ask for a table at the front street window or grab an umbrella table on the rear deck. Both are very romantic and will make you mark your calendar for a return trip.
Favorite Dish: Order the mussels and save the dipping sauce for the spectacular bread. The Long Island Ice Teas are the best.
The Seafood Fra Diablo is spicy and delicious. (I don't think it is served on the regular menu any longer though ).
Grilled scallops served over a bed of sautéed spinach drizzled with Dijon mustard served with a side of roasted vegetables $14.99
Subs Unlimited Plus/Tailgaters: Avoid Subs Unlimited Plus/Tailgaters
Unfortunately, there is no category in the Appropriate Theme for This Restaurant for "Horrible Restaurant Owned By an Idiot".
The food was lousy and so was the service, and the ambience was terrible. But to make things worse, the owner, who I believe has the last name of Shultz, was terribly rude and even threatening. My wife even felt sick later. He should be ashamed of himself.
Favorite Dish: You have got to be kidding.
