I have lived in Rildley Park all my life. The Gas Light is the perfect establishment. Its small and very comfortable. Its not a franchise and has that good Ma & Pa feel to it. The Full Bar is a great addition also. I would recommend this place for shure!! Its got so much history you cant help but fall inlove with the place :)

Great Food, Great Service in a Historic Setting??.
Party of 3 for dining in April of 2010. The food and service were so good we returned the next night for more.The 2nd night was just as good. Fish dishes were excellent, salads were fresh, even a Mediterranian veggie-pasta dish for my vegan wife. All were excellent. Growing up in Ridley Park, I have been a customer and Gas Light fan for many, many years. Russ and Sue are doing an excellent job cooking and maintaining a warm and welcoming environment. We will be returning regularly and recommend that you do too.

Family of 8 ordered dinner. Three of the 8 ordered flounder which was uneatable. Flounder was old, discolored, and strong. When complaint was made to the waiter, he apologized, but did not remove the entrees from the table or offer alternative selections. When the bill came, we were charged for all 8 entrees even though the 3 flounder entrees were left barely touched. We paid without confrontation in fairness to other customers and an untrained waiter. A letter was written to the manager regarding the meal with receipt enclosed. We were not even given the courtesy of a reply.

The Gas Light in Ridley Park is one of my favorite eating places. They have a fabulous dinner deal Tuesday through Thursday; your choice of quite a few favorite dinner items for a really great price. The Pasta Rosa is my favorite. Crab cakes are fabulous. We always get a good meal, good prices and good friends working at the Gas Light.

I believe this place is absolutely to die for. All the people who are knocking this place are just out of their freaking minds. The pasta rosa is incredible and the bread is always so warm and delicious. There is nothing wrong with the management they are always so nice, including the bartender Bobby. I've eaten here countless times and never once had a bad meal. The girl who buses the tables, a young blonde, and a young brunette who waits by the door are always such a delight to see, and also a huge help. TWO THUMBS UP!

This restaurant change ownership several years ago. They have made improvements over the last owner. The food was very good and we thought reasonable prices. We have had private parties there and they were very accommodating.

I haven't been to the Gas Light in quite a few years. Last time it was terrible and too expensive. Well went back to celebrate a relatives birthday, and thought it would be better, but no just the same. The smell in the place was so musty, smelled like we were in the basement. No new upgrades since then either. They had to open the windows to get the smell out, the door for the patio was left open, so we got the treat of dinning with the bugs too. Thanks for that!! Now about the food, the soup was overpowered with fish instead of the seafood bisque that it was suppose to be, and too thin, the stuffed shrimp were the size of medium shrimp, covered in some Crab Meat (barely any), fluffy texture, buried the shrimp with the tails still attached. I have lived in Ridley Park my entire life all 40 something years, and would not recommend this establishment to anyone. And I will not be returning, either.

Apps and pasta are actually quite nice, which is why when the weather turned nice we decided to go and sit on the patio. While we were waiting for our crab dip, we smelt a steak, a perk to their patio being next to the kitchen. When our food came out I cut into my steak and it was well done, not the medium I had asked for. Cooked through the middle, no pink at all. We called over our waitress to make her aware of the issue. It went back to the kitchen, our waitress confirmed what I wanted, but shortly after that the manager brought the steak back out to me asking what I thought was wrong. I asked for the check, and the manager took it off our bill without me asking, or any other word for that manner. While we were finishing our drinks, we could hear how annoyed the kitchen staff was at my returned steak. Apparently I "need to go back to cooking school" and some other choice words I won't repeat. I told the manager and the kitchen was quiet after that. I rarely return food, maybe one plate every other year. I will NEVER go back, for the simple fact there was no apology for the food coming out wrong or what was said within earshot of customers. We could have gone to Carrabbas or Outback for cheaper and received better service.

Pros: Can have nice ambience

Cons: bad mgmt/service

I've been living in Delaware County most of my adult life and have one complaint. There are no decent restaurants. That's a shame considering we are a five minute journey from one of the world's finest culinary cities. I was surprised to stumble upon this little gem and even more surprised to find myself enjoying it. The century old establishment relishes in it's ambience and odes' back to early Ridley Park circa late 1800's. The staff is full of local freindly faces and the bar has a decent wine list. No veal, but I found the Chicken Proscuitto fantastic. Come enjoy a restaurant in Delaware county that has nothing to do with a franchise.

Located in Ridley this restuarant is great for DelCo Locals. The resturant is an old house that was convereted into a great eatery. Everyroom of the 'house' has a different feel and different decor. There is plenty of parking and if it is warm out ask to sit outside. Mant different selections to please everyone. Bring the family as well, they can accomodate larger parties
