Ambiance - restaurant bar side is nice, not out of this world. Not the sexiest location either, but itís good Service - wait staff is very nice, store guy is so-so. Selection - they do have some stuff that is vintage, and some odd-ball stuff, but nothing I canít find anywhere else. Itís overrated honestly. Food - is very good, portions are a nice size Value - somethings in the bottle store are a little over market value. A nice place, not off the wall though.

Excellent craft beer bar! One of the best tap selections around. Great freindly staff. Small bottle shop off the back with excellent selection.

Solid outing during the Black Friday event. The special line-up aside, the reputation of this place is well deserved. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Food was decent and as expected for the type of place. Bottle shop was thoughtfully-cultivated. It was like being in someone elseís cellar. The prices are high but not unexpected. Great experience.

I was only in Norristown for the night, but Caponeís was a great place to stop. Enjoyed an Ithaca Flower Power and some food. Bottle shop in the back was a little disappointing, but I think it had more to do with what I was in the mood for than their selection.

The renown Capones Restaurant didnít disappoint during the RBSG. Over 20 taps of carefully selected beers, no turkey there. An extensive bottle list. Large bar to sit around. The place itself looks like an old semi-classy restaurant that manages to keep a true pub atmosphere. A bottle shop in the back where you can buy things to go. Again the bottle shop is small (VERY SMALL) but the selection is carefully selected and you may come across a gem or two. I did. Prices (especially at the bottle shop) are a bit stiff but PA beer bars in general are the not very cheap. A place Iíd really like to go back to but that may not happen because this place is not super accessible unless you drive there. But with a beer selection like this, I just cannot take the car to such a bar.

Combination bottle shop/restaurant/tap house..bottle shop has a wealth of variety and were available with a good selection of bombers as is not big in shop but there is room to browse around..Matt is friendly and helpful and willing to offer quality recommendations..ate at bar for lunch..liked the sampler option as they had over 30 drafts which they are willing to do growlers for as well.draft list was solid..only downside I didnít notice any prices on beer menu..sampled some pretty tasty grilled chicken fingers and roast beef was good as well..nicely prepared simple tavern offerings..inside feel is not really your typical pub style..but they donít call themselves a pub/gastropub..well worth a visit..

Rating is primarily about the bottle shop. Eaten there once and the food was above average. Beer selection was excellent and from regularly watching their tap list I know they commonly get rare beers such as PTY and KBS. Servers were older females with little knowledge of craft beer. Bottle shop is fantastic. They get every beer you can think of, which is very deceiving considering how small it is. Only slight downside is pricing. If another place has a beer, it's probably cheaper, but the majority of places don't even have the beers you see at Capones so pricing is a trade off. Owner of place is very knowledgeable and provides great service. Really nice guy. Love going to this place!!

Meh. I came in through the store side and took a look at what they had first. Decent selection but prices were higher than The Beer Store. The restaurant itself is connected to the store and accessible from there. Long bar with lots of patrons. Nice mix of crowd from old to young and beers fans ranging from craft to Miller Lite drinkers. Friendly staff. Menu is ok and contains mostly fried bar food or sandwiched. Had the double dip wings and chicken sandwich (both were average). Overall, this was not worth the "hype" in my opinion. I would have rather gone to Tired Hands.

I go to the bottle shop nearly weekly and eat and drink here at least once a month. Interesting place. Mix of business people and blue collar workers frequent the place. Some drinking crafts, other drinking macro brews. The selection of beer very solid in both the bottle shop and on tap. One of the best bottle shops in the region and certainly the best I know of in the íburbs. Matt, who runs the place, is also a great guy. Food tends to be standard bar food type but its good. If I lived in the suburbs Iíd come here much more frequently.
