Blue Collar: Dine with a View

Searching for your perfect home in Lancaster? If you are curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!

Have you ever been to the Four Seasons Golf Club in Landisville? While its a great place to hit the range and play a round of golf, it’s also a great place to go to check out their newest addition: Blue Collar Restaurant and Bar!

PC: lancasteronline

After a major renovation to a banquet room, Blue Collar opened its doors to the community less than one year ago, offering a delicious and eclectic menu that you need to give a try. The menu features anything from steak to salads to cheesesteaks and burgers and nachos. If you want to be transported to a tropical climate, try their poke and acai bowls! Or try one of their infamous spicy tuna sushi tots. How delicious does that sound?!? 

PC: lancasteronline

Aside from the menu, the ambiance is another reason to visit Blue Collar. It offers 170 seats with gorgeous panoramic views of the golf course. You can pick from a seat at the U-shaped bar, a booth, or a table.

Speaking of their bar, look how gorgeous it turned out! They have several beers on tap – anything from nationally recognized names to local brews too.

The inside is bright and overflowing with natural light. Imagine eating dinner there and overlooking the golf course when the sun starts to set later – what a way to wind down at the end of a day!

PC: lancasteronline

The idea of Blue Collar was created during March 2020 – a Covid opportunity. The two owners came together and found the perfect venue at the Four Seasons. They have plans to expand and open a cafe later this spring onsite. We highly recommend trying this hidden gem out – it has nothing but rave reviews and we know you will love it too.

We DONUT Know A Better Place!

We are now a full month into the New Year! How are your New Year’s Resolutions holding up? It’s no surprise that the #1 New Year’s resolution is to eat a better diet. 

This is a goal my family and I are trying to incorporate more of…but you know what? Some days you are just craving a delicious donut! Trying to eat a healthier diet means that we make sure our “cheat” days count. That means if we are going to eat a donut, we won’t just grab a box from the grocery store or the Dunkin drive thru – we will go directly to the best donuts in Lancaster… Beiler’s Doughnuts!

PC: Beiler’s Doughnuts

Beiler’s Doughnuts began over 30 years ago at their first location at Reading Terminal Market in Philly. They brought the deliciousness of Amish baking all the way from Lancaster to Philadelphia. Over the past 30 years, the company has grown such a following that they were able to expand to additional locations in Philly, as well as Lancaster. The Lancaster location is at 398 Harrisburg Pike, Lancaster, PA – by Lancaster Barnstormers Stadium. You can also order them on Grubhub, Caviar, and UberEats.

PC: Beiler’s Doughnuts

The instant you walk through the doors, I promise your mouth will start watering! The smell is sweet, and the cases are filled with a huge assortment of fresh donuts.  Their donuts are made fresh daily, using a generations-old family recipe that is responsible for making them the best donuts in PA (at least we think so…and I bet you will too)!

PC: Frugal Lancaster

You can pick from over 40 flavors of donuts…they offer the classics but also unique combinations, like the Dutch Crumb and Key Lime donuts. If you can’t decide, we suggest the Maple Bacon, Apple Fritters, and the traditional Creme Filled Powdered. They are the perfect combination of fluffy, sweet and creamy. Check out their menu here.

Whether it’s your cheat day or not, go ahead and try Beiler’s Doughnuts…I dare you to just get one!
