CHEF’S NOTE: We update our full dining menu at the Herdic House with the changing seasons and produce, about once per month. We do our best to update our menu online as well, but it’s always best to call to confirm if a specific dish is being offered on the evening you’ll be dining with us.

Wednesday Blue Plate
A central PA classic Blue Plate this week, everyone, tailor-made for the harvest season: Fossil Springs Farm sweet peppers, stuffed with Misty Mountain Farm beef, wilted spinach, basmati rice and parmesan, served in a tomato-butter sauce. It’s $15 at the House, folks, and $17 to go (but know that our number of to-go orders is usually very limited!) We’ll hope to see you out tonight!

Thursday $9 Craft Cocktail & Happy Hour Specials
Join us from 5-7 pm on Thursday evenings at the bar for some cocktail specials:
—$2 off wines by the glass
—$1 off beers by the bottle
—$9 This week’s cocktail will be an apple cider-bourbon punch. And we’re increasingly thinking that Thursday night burgers should maybe be a thing—but this week, it’s beef brisket we have in supply: so, this week, braised Misty Mountain beef brisket sandwich, caramelized Walla-Walla onion, melted gruyere and oyster mushrooms, with french-fried carola potatoes from Beech Grove Farm and Liz’s pickles…

Friday Specials

Here at the Herdic, this time of year comes with a flurry of homecoming weekends, showers, rehearsals and finally holiday parties that keep us busy busy, even as the delicious autumn days turn inexorably into chill November evenings and then pastel winter sunsets that finish in darkness before we even open our doors for dinner service. But, this weekend, we’re taking a moment to celebrate the equinox with a few Friday night specials built from the cusp of the season. Stop in for a taste of the harvest…

– Sage wisdom: with sage and ginger syrup, bourbon, pear and grand marnier

– Creamy cauliflower bisque with sautéed apples and crispy bacon

– Pistachio-crusted fresh Atlantic cod, served over roasted autumn veggies and chanterelles and finished with leek and tarragon butter

– Daisy’s warm apple dumplings with our housemade vanilla ice cream

And a heads up for next week, ladies and gents: the Herdic House will be closed on Wednesday, September 27 for a private event so there will be :gasp!: no Blue Plate Special next week! But we’ll be ready for our usual Blue Plate crowd on October 4, when the real autumn vibes have started to kick in…

Upcoming Events

Fundraiser for Slow Food International | September 20-23

We’ve joined up with a fundraiser for Slow Food International that involves not only fun but also our other favorite thing–alcohol. Join us the week of September 20 as we celebrate Negroni Week with a different iteration of the classic cocktail every evening, and donate the profits to Slow Food. Want to learn more about Slow Food? Check them out here! Want to listen to Liz’s once-passable Italian? Catch her after a few Negronis and she’ll go on and on…

Oktoberfest | First Friday, October 6

Is it Oktoberfest time again already? Yes indeed! Join us for beer, cider, and all our favorite German dishes, as celebrate the harvest season in lederhosen and dirndls, with as much Oompa music as we all can handle. And we’re also hoping to be hosting the incredible Nella Godby Storm for October’s First Friday, but one of our favorite artists and luddites has been incommunicado all summer while she spends time in Canada. Stay tuned for an update!

Prime Rib Night | Friday, October 27

So this summer as we cooked and cracked lobsters galore, Hannah suggested that perhaps, come autumn and winter, we should host prime rib nights too—so we’re going to give it a try! Join us for some melt-in-your-mouth, delectably marbled antibiotic-free prime rib, rubbed with garlic and peppercorns and served beside roasted potatoes and buttered broccoli. Simple, hearty and plain old wonderful. But, much like our lobsters, please call in to make a reservation and pre-order! A limited number of roasted then grilled beef ribs will also be available—but you may have to wrestle Jim for them…

Saturday afternoon’s Victorian tea | Saturday, November 18

It’s that most wonderful time of the year again—or nearly! Join us as we work together with the lovely volunteers of Victorian Christmas to create a captivating weekend of house tours, church tours, vintage model trains and general Christmas Victoriana to kick off the holiday season…and, of course, as usual, we’ll host Saturday afternoon’s Victorian tea, with seatings at 2:00, 2:30 and 3:00. Check out the weekend plans at!


Tour Herdic House

The Herdic House is among the finest examples of Italian Villa architecture in the state, and guests are welcome to tour the restaurant. Its distinctive features include ornate plaster moldings and arches, and a mahogany stairway that curves three floors to a cupola. The ornate first floor mouldings and the acanthus-leafed fluted columns on the porches are original to the building, and the intriguing three-story chandelier has captivated many visitors. The bar, in the rear of the building, was created from the witness stand of the demolished county courthouse, and the fan was taken from the same building.
