Golden Lamb

27 S. Broadway, Lebanon, OH - (513) 932-5065

Having been to the Golden Lamb many years ago for very special occasions I was looking forward to a fabulous dining experience, as usual. Unfortunately, it is not the same place at all. Newly renovated, it remains charming but the room temperature was as cold as the food that had to be sent back to be reheated.

The waitress seemed inexperienced and overworked and although, surprisingly, it was not packed as I expected for a Sunday afternoon, she seemed to be running all over the place instead of taking care of select customers. The quality of the food was OK but not for the price charged, at $20.00 per dinner. I had the same kind of dinner just this week at Bob Evans for $6.00 and it was just as good.

I ordered coffee and received it hot but in waiting for the Sweet & Low (as there was none on the table) the coffee turned cold. The waitress heated up my husband's coffee, then left, and we had to yell at her to get the Sweet & Low, which she brought, but she did not heat up my coffee, which was still cold.

I would say my entire experience today left me cold and it is unlikely that I will return again and pay $60.00 for a cold dinner with less than stellar service. What a shame. This used to be "THE" place to dine.

A Golden Lamb specialty for years, this serving of eight sauerkraut balls is a mighty big appetizer, even for two healthy appetites.  That's cocktail sauce in the center, for dipping.

Among your salad options is the hot slaw, which is simply hot bacon dressing over plain cabbage.   Delicious!

Often there is a wait for a table at the Golden Lamb.  This lobby chair, covered with a souvenir blanket, is one nice place bide a while.
