Visited 3 times now, usually after a trip to the BeerYard. Fantastic food. The mussels are a must. Everthing else I’ve tried (from sandwich to filet mignon) has been above average as well. Superb draft and bottle selection with frequent rotation. Reasonable pricing. The domestic micro offerings could be improved. It gets crowded on Friday and Saturday nights, prepare to wait for a while if you are looking to eat. Overall, a top notch beer bar.
Oustanding new place 26 tap beers with 2 being beer engines and over 220 bottled beer. Great wood burning grill try the burgers and fries but start with hte mussels. I the dirty mussles they were very good and the broth with bread is great.
And you have to see the glassware.

26 taps with no macro filler. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable. Good bottle selection, but more expensive than most (Damnation was $16) Make sure you don’t get there for lunch, because they open at 4.

Nice, mostly Belgian tap bar with booths and tables. Rather spendy with Belgians at about $6/7 glass. Gets packed tight on Friday & Saturday evenings. The Mussels were quite good but the bratwurst sandwich didn’t do much for me. Delirium Tremens, Dupont Saison, La Chouffe, St Bernardus Abt 12, and others enjoyed here on tap. Also micros on tap for less $. Large bottle selection.
re-reviewed: It’s been about year since we were here last, and my how the mighty have fallen. Prices are outrageous - $7.00+ for 9oz beers, $9.00 for a salad, $12.00 for a burger. Wife ordered a burger medium - came out raw (I like rare and I would have sent this back). I had the Cuban sandwich - dry "smoked" pork, serrano ham that could not be found, one cornichon, very little mustard. I had to say it but Wawa makes a better Cuban sandwich. Ordered a Steamworks DIPA. Came in a goblet that was 1/3 foam. Waited 10 minutes for it to settle and ended up with a 1/3 empty glass (at $7.50). Called the bartender over and pointed out that I hadn’t sipped it at all and it was 1/3 empty and his response was "the glass was too big". WTF!! FU pal - if the glass was too big, serve it in a smaller glass. This just makes you and your bar look like ass. We will NEVER be going here again (and we’ve probably been here 3 or 4 times in the last 2 years). Good riddance.
below is my original review:
Went with another couple for dinner on a Saturday night. It was very crowded, and we were orignally told 45 minutes, but a table opened up and we got seated right away. Both IPAs listed on the tap menu were gone, and replaced with a Flying Dog dbl IPA (yuck) and Sierra Anniversary - a favorite but we have it at home now. Belgian selection was above average on tap. Nice bottle selection. Prices were high, but it’s in Wayne - what do you expect. Service was abysmal. Waitress would take two drink orders and walk away (there were four of us). She forgot 2 parts of our entree order and we had to chase her down to get them. Wasn’t very attentive looking for empty glasses. Hopefully she’s not indicitive of the rest of the service here. Would go back and try again.
What a great place! 26 beers on tap (two were hand pump). A whole bunch of bottles (American Craft Beer, Belgians and others). Ours server was all over it too. He knew his stuff and he really pushed the free samples. Didn’t want us getting a full glass of something we didn’t like. They have the glassware to match just about every beer they have in house. Non-smoking, no TV’s (really trying to promote community!). I only had the Frites but they were great! Some interesting lookiing sandwiches on the menu in addition to some well put together entrees. Nice new decor and just a really impressive place. Exactly the type of place I would love to open up. This is going to be a must time each time I need to stop in the Beer Yard...which I will make a point to make sure is at least once a month! Had a Lou Pepe Framboise on tap from 2004!
We were there on Sunday afternoon after stopping by the Beer Yard. When we entered they were playing the Grateful Dead. They had Pliny the Younger on tap and wow it was so fresh and hoppy. Great place. We shared a cheese plate. They also had Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek 04 on tap. Pretty nice tap list. Great bottle list. Food menu was very nice. People are friendly and knowledgeable. Great new place. We really enjoyed it.

Had dinner with my girlfriend on a Saturday evening. Friendly, attentive waitstaff. Draft list was extensive with excellent beers from a wide variety of styles. Bottle list was thorough as well. There were not any excessively rare beers on tap when we were there, but it is rumored that there are some rarities in the cellar. The food menu could have been larger, but each of us really enjoyed the food we ordered. Overall, a great new addition to the suburban Philly food and drink scene.
Went with some friends on a Sunday afternoon. Enjoyed a dunkelweiss despite the condescending service. Perhaps the bartender would have been more cheery if we had ordered quickly. Definitely will be going again. Hopefully the same bartender is not there.
