Union League Guard House

Map953 Youngsford Road
Gladwyne, PA 19035
  • Food and Drink


From 2011: This 200-year-old institution is known for its classic menu. Sunday to Thursday, the Guard House’s “Three Courses for $30” special woos thriftier diners with dishes like lobster pizza, crab cakes and filet for nearly half the price.

From 2013: Since 1979, chef/owner Albert Breuers has led his formal waitstaff with impressive deference, setting a standard for front-of-the-house professionalism that is courageous, charming, and always spot on.

Best No-Filler Crab Cake, 2014: The all-meat rule holds true at the Guard House, from the crab cake sandwich to the jumbo-lump entrée with red curry sauce.

From 2015: Buzzing around his chalet hideaway since 1979, Breuers exhibits astonishing attention to detail and care for his patrons. It all boils down to a marriage of old-school hospitality and reputable fine-dining philosophies.
