Had a taste lunch here with my spouse but could not wait to escape. Way too noisy for my taste. Was seated between a party with a screeching toddler and a group of loud people! Perhaps more room between tables would help?

Great atmosphere and food. Brunch is always delicious. Check out Bowmans Tower before or after your meal. Oh, and the mac and cheese! Trust me. The lamb sandwich is divine.

We had 14 people arrive without a reservation, and the staff was more than up to the challenge! Our British Car Club had just finished a covered bridge tour of Bucks County, and we stopped for lunch. We were greeted warmly, tables were quickly arranged,...More

I've eaten here many times and am always happy with the food. The service is not as consistent, but I can live with that. Good burgers and sandwiches, good drinks and entertainment.

Went here with another couple last Monday night. It was a good thing that we had reservations because it was very crowded. We’ve been here before so we weren’t surprised. The menu has both entrees and sandwiches and a good selection of beer, wine and...More

Yes, they have gluten free as do all restaurants. Order a burger and skip the roll. That’s what I do. Have the pork chops. Or the salmon. Or the whipped ricotta. Their salads with a piece of salmon are delicious.
