Some 20 years ago along Plum Street the old Yoders Bar sign came down and a new sign went up that said American Bar and Grill. Friends said that it was the new hot spot in town and in fact when I went to investigate it was a full house.

Memory tells me that the biggest change at that time was a fresh coat of paint on the walls and the cheap beer signs came down and expensive beer signs went up. Food was always good. They offered your typical bar fare of burgers, wings, fries and a few entrees.

Well today the sign hasn't changed but inside it's a whole new story. Hard wood floors, new upscale tables and seating and lighting and probably the most important is a new chef, that's right I said chef, and menu. Our waiter said the chef came from the Stock Yard Inn an old Lancaster favorite just down the street.

Looks like the ABG has gone upscale! The clientele looked much the same as in years past, casually dressed and relaxed but that was about all that remains the same. The menu features oysters and lobster and I have to say everything we ate was great. From Oysters Rockefeller to a rib eye steak sandwich made with real steak not your typical minute steaks right through a fantastic bread pudding desert.

If you haven’t been to American Bar & Grill lately I highly recommend you give it another try, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

I was there over the summer and noticed the decor change, however at that time it must have been the old menu. Chicken wings were great as always as were the fries, but there wasn't a lobster in sight.
