In operation for over 33 years, Lambertville Station restaurant, hotel and banquet hall is a bustling business on the banks of the Delaware. Perfect for everything from a cozy brunch on a cold winter’s day to a full service wedding with the spectacular back drop of the beautiful Delaware River.

Dan Whitaker, one of the owners of the Station, was an integral part of transforming the building from an abandoned station into the thriving business of today.

Lambertville StationThe 5 acre site of the station property had stood empty and abandoned for years in the heart of Lambertville. Whitaker had noticed the boarded up building in the 1970s when he saw it on a a day trip to the famous Golden Nugget Flea Market in Lambertville. Five years later he was scouting for a potential restaurant site when the abandoned station came to mind as he was on a date in New Hope. He suggested a stroll across the bridge to take a look at the property and saw a For Sale sign. Whitaker and a group of young friends with a vision decided to transform the property.

The venture started with the now lauded Lambertville Station restaurant and grew 3 years later with a 46 room hotel with sweeping views of the Delaware river. Within the past few years the partners have expanded further, enlarging a popular banquet facility aimed at providing a desirable venue for special events. The banquet facility has taken off as a desirable wedding venue often hosting several weddings per week. A 200 person capacity banquet hall with stunning views over the Delaware river and charming town of New Hope are a big attraction to couples and guests alike, while a huge bridal suite also boasting amazing river views, Whitaker said, adds to the appeal. Event planners and a wedding concierge ensure the day goes off without a hitch, leaving couples to relax and enjoy the surroundings.
