I was on a mission when I visited here with my wife. They had heady topper and I wanted some. LOL. As you walk in you are greeted by the hostess kind of hidden to the right. A very big open dining area to the left and right. The left side is more a bar atmosphere with t.v's around the area. The right side seemed to be more of a restaraunt type feel. We didn't venture upstairs but from what I gathered there is another bar and dining area. Nice decor as you look around, Ben Franklin painted on the wall with his little dog and a couple of other Bucks County themed paintings.
Service was decent. We were handed menu's immediately and a nice loaded beer menu. Other than that our waiter was kind of MIA most of the time and it was not a busy day. No biggie I don't really like people coming over every two minutes asking how everything is.
Food was amazing. In terms of bars,brewpubs, chain restaraunts in the area. This one is setting the bar high. The best burger I've had yet. I asked for a well done burger and wouldn't ya know it I got a well done burger. So funny how something so simple can be messed up by expensive city restaraunts and chain restaraunts. This was done perfectly.
And onto the beer. So nice to see 25 tap handles and not see one Miller Lite or Budweiser tap handle. ( Ok a bit snobbish there ) A solid selection to what most area bars have but a little bit more on the expensive side. The good thing about the beer menu is they have a discount bottle section. This one really intrigued us as none of it was really out dated or bad beer. Some good ones on the list ranging from $2 to $4 a bottle. As for the rest of the beer menu very nicely done splitting the beers up by style, another plus.
Overall this place is as good as any. The food is Amazing and a solid offering of beer. The only problem I see with this place are the prices.

This is a real nice comfortable place to visit. Plenty of stone, wood, and dark wood furniture is paired with some colonial style decorations and flat screen TVS. There are two floors here - the first is more of a dining area with a small service bar that can only seat about 6 people. The upstairs is a more relaxed area with a a larger bar, plenty of tables, and numerous TVs to enjoy sports. An interesting picture of the fire that gutted the place a few years ago is mounted next to the first floor bar.
There was a great list of beers here - about 30 on draft and over 100 bottles. The draft list was impressive to me with the likes of Founders All Day IPA, Alesmith Horny Devil, Victory Moonglow Weizenbock, Ommegang Rare Vos, Ballast Point Victory at Sea, Sly Fox Odyssey, Bell's Amber, and Southern Tier Old Man Winter. Beers from Lancaster, Allagash, Goose Island, Mad Hatter, Brooklyn, and The Shed were some of the other ones. Bottom line there is a nice number of styles represented and an easy to navigate menu. The beers we had were all fresh.
Food was good as was the service. We didn't have the burgers, but others that ordered them looked very good.
This was my first visit here, and I will definitely be back. The beer selection would please any BA.
