Drawing on his culinary background working in East Coast bistros and stately hotel kitchens, Mile High Steak & Seafood’s Executive Chef David Robinson crafts a rotating menu of upscale steakhouse cuisine. Robinson, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, refuses to cut corners with his ingredients, going so far as to fly in fresh seafood and grass skirts overnight from the Honolulu Fish Company. He only chooses aged certified Angus beef for his steak-centric entrees, and he revs up traditional sandwiches and appetizers on the bar menu with high-end items such as shaved prime rib, artisan cheeses, and lobster. These gourmet bites pair palatably one of the bar’s signature cocktails or glasses of wine.
Even in his down time, Robinson keeps his culinary skills sharp, coordinating charity events for the Chester County SPCA and the Brandywine Hospital Strawberry Festival. But even with his busy schedule and impressive resumé, he’s still thankful for landing his “dream job” at Mile High Steak & Seafood.

Bordley House Grille takes its name from 18th-century gentleman farmer John Beale Bordley, who ran his Chester County estate with seasonal crop rotation, artisanal brewing, and self-sufficiency in mind. Though the restaurant is nestled on an idyllic golf course rather than a sprawling farm, the staff carries on Mr. Bordley's traditions with a seasonally changing menu. The menu offers homey comfort food such as chicken, pastry baked salmon, burgers, and pulled-pork sandwiches. A covered patio lined with lantern-tipped columns welcomes visitors into the rustic two-story mortar-and-slate farmhouse, where rough stone walls, fireplaces, and chairs upholstered with padded leather evoke an earthy, organic ambience.
