Stopped in on June 3, 2012. Cafe style joint with a great tap list. Huge bottle selection. Cheesesteaks. Cool spot. The take-home beer store is incredible - about 800 or so to select from. Cigar City, AleSmith, Russian River, Port/Lost Abbey - lots of goodies!

i wish it didn’t take me a half hour to get to this place! i would certainly be here more often if that were the case. cheesesteaks, pizzas, and beer. i can’t really ask for much more. the beer selection is not easily matched and everyone behind the counter knows what they’re talking about. with 20+ taps, being able to sample is a must... and they’re glad to help out! i’ve heard people complain about the mix-a-six prices, but that’s easily offset by the cheap food prices. i don’t think the bottle prices are any more than other shops in the area. right on par with a place like capone’s. i recommend you stop in if you’ve never been, you won’t regret it.

The good: top notch selection at excellent prices. Quick growler fills with rotating taps.
The bad: too small and crowded to expect even decent service from the guys running the place. Also, they will pour pints so it becomes really difficult to access the coolers with people hanging out for hours at a take-out shop.

Only commenting on the bottle shop part of Pinnocchio’s. Small space which is mostly taken up by beer fridges. I’m OK with that. Great quantity and quality of bottles available. I picked up a mixed sixer of stuff that I don’t recall seeing closer to me in Philly as well as a growler of Founders Breakfast Stout. Plenty of taps to choose from and the prices were quite reasonable for PA/Philly. While it is a bit south of the city if you are out that way for any reason I reccomend a stop. I usually go a bit out of my way to be able to stop in but never second guess my decision.

One of my favorite places. Yes, it has the feel of a diner/cheap pizza joint. But there are TV’s with sports to watch, friendly waitstaff and great pizza and beer. So, I dig the vibe. Selection is great for those of us in Delaware who want a quick hop to the land of better selections. The service, as mentioned, is always friendly and helpful. A couple times I just mentioned that I was having a hard time picking between beer A and beer B, bang, two samples brought out without asking. Taps rotate fairly quickly, making me want to go back very often.

I was very worried wjen I walked into the "To Go" door of Pinocchio’s only to find a fridge of Labatt’s and Bud Light. Fortunately, the guy at the counter directed me around the corner to the "Beer Garden To Go," where a treasure trove of beers were waiting, as well as a handful of taps. I had barely selected my first beers when somebody thrust a glass of Lagunitas Holiday Ale into my hand. That made Christmas beer shopping much easier. Selection was extensive and very solid. Definitely woth the short trip from Philly.

Tiny place, barely room to look at the coolers and have anyone else in the space moving around. Selection is very good, service is adequate, pricing was decent for what I purchased. I would recommend as this place based on selection. I made just a quick stop and would frequent again if in the area.

We popped in on a tuesday afternoon for a beer and some lunch in the dining area, then a browse through the beer store... food was incredible for what i would consider a pizza joint... has the feel of a diner with some beer taps, albeit pretty awesome beers on tap... as for the store, fairly priced incredible selection, some rarities as well as some big brands... gotta sell lots of the BMC’s to sustain the craft business, seems like they understand this... Cant have one without the other, married with children theme song, you can learn a lot from that show...

other than the fact that its clean, it has little in the way of ambiance...it feels like a diner/sports bar and is far too bright for my taste. however the restaurant service is friendly and fairly quick. i had a very tasty pizza off of the menu which features traditional pizza shop offerings...I’ve gone on to try several sandwiches and appetizers on future visits...all were excellent. now on to the beer...very nice draft selection with a mix of imports and crafts...some local rarities. and the bottle shop is excellent...only capones can rival it in this area. lots of hard to find bottles here! prices in both the bottle shop and restaurant are fair for beer and food. i highly reccomend a visit! they also offer growlers which seemed to be priced a bit high but my experience in that area is limited so i could be wrong.

Lightning fast visit with a local friend, as we scored some pie for his boy. Friendly, family-oriented vibe to the place. I didn’t sample the food myself, but was assured that it was quite tasty. Bottle shop offerings looked impressive, without the range of rarities you can find at Capone’s but with perhaps a wider gathering of what’s available via distro in PA. Nice, if relatively limited range of taps and growlers to go, of which we picked up two tasty ones. I look forward to going back next time I’m in the area. UPDATE: bumping my score up after more time in the bottle shop. Awesome place.
