Offering Main Line dining at reasonable prices, The Paddock at Devon, located on Lancaster Avenue, is a great place for friends to meet and enjoy excellent food without having to pay for an expensive bill.

Entering the restaurant on a Thursday night at 5:30 p.m., there was no wait. Welcoming red and mahogany décor made for an inviting atmosphere in the dining and bar area. The sit-down dinner area, which creates a stadium effect around the bar, lets diners experience a social bar atmosphere while allowing them to enjoy a nice dinner at the same time.

“I thought that the overall atmosphere was very inviting. The energy in there is great, especially because we sat near the bar. It was also cool because we went on family night and there was a magician,” Karina Wright, sophomore special education major, said.

The Paddock at Devon runs a number of specials throughout the week including Family Night, which features a magician and other family entertainment. Happy hour is another popular part of The Paddock, which includes drink specials and $1 appetizers. In addition, the restaurant hosts live bands and Monday night football specials.

The food at The Paddock is extraordinary, and the prices are even better. Between the hours of 4 and 6 p.m., early bird specials are offered for $9.95. During this time, appetizers are reduced to half price.

“I really enjoyed the food at The Paddock. My friends and I ordered prime rib and shrimp scampi for dinner as well as lobster macaroni and cheese for an appetizer. Everything was so delicious and even with dessert, our bill came out to under $60 for a group of four people,” Megan Krouch, sophomore undecided major, said.

In lieu of bread and butter, The Paddock serves pita bread along with garlic hummus.

“I thought the hummus was a little too garlicky but it was a nice change from the traditional bread and butter you get at every other restaurant,” Krouch said.

“I thought the magician created a friendly atmosphere at the table and passed the time while we waited for our meal,” Ashley Edel, sophomore special education major, said.

To add to the good food at The Paddock, there is also diligent service. The waitress was very attentive and always made sure everyone’s glass was full at all times.

“The waitress was friendly and also catered to all of our needs at the table. Also, for not having written our orders down, she did a fantastic job in delivering all of the food,” Wright said.
