welsh inspired. american made.


In 2007, Anthony Morgan and Mike Cottle purchased what was once L.C. Jordan’s and opened the Black Gryphon, adding to a legacy of more than seventy years of dining at the location. The Black Gryphon, which represents the Morgan family crest, was based on the Welsh foundation of using local, fresh produce and product.

We continue to take inspiration from Welsh cuisine as well as homegrown, Central Pennsylvanian traditions. Everything we do is made-to-order, from farm to table. We strive to serve you only the best and nothing less. We look forward to having you!

  • South County Brewing (York County) is coming to Black Gryphon and kidnapping some of our taps for a night. These guys are coming up quick! Don't miss this (seriously)! We'll have Liminal Moment and Day Rider on tap along with a firkin of their ESB with whole leaf fuggle hops! Click below for more information!

  • The perfect gift for friends, family, or your best office bud! Never worry about misplacing your card or having to track someone down to hand it to them! It's all online (or you can also print it out if you'd like) and sent to your (or the "giftees") email address or phone!

  • So you're a certified know-it-all, huh? Well who needs a MENSA membership to prove it when you can come down to the Black Gryphon and dominate. We've got prizes. We've got $0.70 wings. We've got $3.50 20 oz. Yuengling drafts. Test your brain skills with Jim Marlin every Wednesday! We have the questions. Do you have the answers? We have the questions. Do you have the answers?

    This place is a solace, and doesn't offer the same Sysco, mid-grade quality food or the same line-up of beers on draft that every other restaurant serves. If you're looking for top notch service and excellent food, or really, if you're just tired of eating at the same places that offer the same things and you want a change of pace, the Black Gryphon is the answer.

    This is the best restaurant in Elizabethtown. When my wife and I are looking for quality, well-prepared meals out we go to the Black Gryphon.
