Solid joint. Large inside with plenty of seating and wrap around bar. Many mainstay beers on tap but a couple of new ticks for us. Itís worth having a look at the bottle menu too. Food is mostly burgers but decent. Bartender was friendly and chatty. Iím not sure if this is part of a pub chain but has that kind of ambiance about it. Regardless, it was nice to come check this place out.

Just a couple of blocks from Red Star, and a short drive or maybe 10-15 minute walk from the train station (with no sidewalks, though - this is Murica after all). Inside has a very chain feel to it. Large bar smack in the middle, tables all around. Friendly bar woman tried her best. Good tap selection, and a very interesting bottle selection (a gose and a Flanders red in cans? yes, please). Sadly, no tasters, samplers or smaller pours, and I can only drink so many full pints. Worth a stop.

A nice bar but this is really just PJ whelihans with less sports, more music, and slightly better beer...the concept behind the bar is the same though. Bartenders look good, are trained to sound good to the layperson, but largely know little about what they are serving. The food menu is offputting...a whole page of expensive burgers. The beer selection is really very good and makes it worth stopping now and then but I dont like the gastropub lineup with a nightclub soul.
12/18/14 update...after a few more visits things are improving. Some of the apps are tasty and the oysters are good most of the time. Also seems server knowledge is getting better. Still wish it wasnt packed with families early and then bros drinking crap beer later.

Iím a fan of this place. A good beer line up. service is adequate for how busy they are. Good happy hour specials. Food is decent, oysters are tasty and fresh. The prices are reasonable. The only issue is how long it takes to get a table if you have 6+ people coming. Otherwise, welcome to Exton.

For the area, probably has the largest tap list and variety. A lot of great beers and always a firkin. Haven't seen one "rare" beer yet. Family friendly and had a nice time during our visit. Will definitely go back. Food was so-so and if its the same on my next visit, I won't go there to eat anymore.
