This is out second time to
This is out second time to the restaurant, first was over 5 years ago, and we thought the dinner menu choices were very nice and the family enjoyed the food and service. The staff was very friendly. They have a huge beer selection which is their niche, but their food was good too. The wife had the brisket and I had the paella.

The Drafting Room is consistently
The Drafting Room is consistently one of the finest dining experiences in Chester County! I never have to worry about the quality of the food or service when I bring visitors to this restaurant.

The Drafting Room has a wonderful craft beer list, both draft and bottles. The food is wonderful, with rare finds. It's definitely not your typical bar/pub food!

We've been going to the Drafting
We've been going to the Drafting Room for over fifteen years. The food is always wonderful, the menu is changing (not constantly) but the restaurant keeps it fresh. The staff is always friendly and courteous.

overall great place
Restaurant is small compared to chains which is a delight. Menu was small but interesting. Appetizers included cheese and meats and drinks included a massive beer list. You got a lot of food for the price, so the value was great. Even the appetizer had a lot of food. Service was very good, however, it isn't the 5 star place, but more relaxing and comfortable with 5 star food. I will definitely go back and recommend as a great local find.

Neighborhood Gem sums it up
Excellent varied moderately priced menu. Extraordinary beer selection. Better than most wine selection. Friendly efficient service (like good umpires, you get what you need without noticing they're there.). Specials that are special.
We were a group of 8 and wanted to have a place that we could talk without shouting. The room was packed and we were able to enjoy each others company.
This is a place where you know ingredients roll in the back and well prepared dishes come out of the kitchen. I didn't spot ANYTHING that wasn't prepared from scratch.
I can't say enough.

Great craft beer tasting in Exton
This was our third visit to The Drafting Room, with the quality of the experience outstanding every time. The Sunday brunch is excellent! We also enjoy the number of great, hard to find craft beers that are offered at this restaurant. For a Chester County resident, to find a similarly exciting beer menu you would need to travel either to Philly or another county (with great suburban beer offerings still only sparsely available).

Gem in the rough in Exton
This was my first time dining at the Drafting Room. The service was really superb, the food presentation was truly amazing. As someone who was in the food industry for many years I was very impressed with the whole experience of dining here. I plan on going back again. The only gripe I could have is that the menu selection was really limited, but for the items they do offer, I really would recommend this place to anyone to try.

Nice improvement over past year
We hadn't been to the Drafting Room in a little while. The last time we weren't overly impressed with the quality and inventiveness of the dishes. But things have changed. Around the table, everyone was very happy with their food. The flavors and preparation were all spot on. We'll definitely be back.

Our visit to The Drafting Room was very enjoyable. Food and service were very good. We will be back again.

Parents need to be controlled
Restaurants need to be better able to separate people with children from adults trying to have a nice meal out. If you know your kids are going to act up, take them to a childrens place, not where adults are paying a good sum of money to enjoy their meal after working a long day/week. The parents are worse when they try to keep talking to the kids trying to get tem to eat one more bite of num num.... or won't remove the child for a while till they settle down.

Love the option to get a variety
Love the option to get a variety of different ounce pours on the draft list. Great craft beer selection as well. The service was prompt and friendly. I'll definitely be coming back.

Consistently excellent food
We've been going to the Drafting Room for 15 years because the meals never miss. Every dish is creatively conceived, interesting, and absolutely delicious. We love this chef's work. And the prices are extremely reasonable for a place with such a creative menu. Service is always good; our latest dinner there, on Aug. 3, 2013, had outstanding service. The ambiance is nondescript but pleasant -- not the kind of ambiance for a "special occasion" restaurant, but we do go there for special occasions.

With many competitors in the Exton area the Drafting Room has what some do not. A great selection of daily specials and a solid menu of good food. If you enjoy a restaurant survivor on the small / special scale, this one cannot be overlooked.

Hasn't failed us yet
We always enjoy a night out at the Drafting Room-- interesting beers, delicious food, congenial waitstaff. What's not to love?

Fun with friends
Met some friends for drinks and dinner after work. Creative martinis - the Caramel Pretzel was delicious!! Great mussels as an app - they prepare them 3 different ways. I had salmon with a drunken cherry butter over apple and arugula salad, and it was really Very good. Would definitely come back to The Drafting Room!

Nice for Brunch
I had been to the Drafting Room for dinner and drinks before but never brunch. It was good...not a huge selection, but it was very good food for the low price per person. And the specialty drinks (I had the champagne bellini with pomegranate) was divine. Our server was very attentive, and the manager (or maybe owner?) came over to ask us how everything was. That's always a plus in my book. The dining room temp was somewhat warm when we walked in, so I thought it was going to be uncomfortable...but the A/C must've kicked in right away because it was the fine the remainder of our time there. I would certainly return and recommend to others for a casual brunch at a great price.

I had family visiting from
I had family visiting from out of town last weekend and we had brunch here from a recommendation from a friend. IT WAS DELICIOUS!! My husband and I both agreed that this may become our "Sunday thing." Highly recommend, but make sure you have a reservation!

Enjoyable experience as always
Food was delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. We will visit drafting room again.

We were heading to a concert and let our server, Melanie, know that we had to be on the way by a certain time. She was fantastic!

Great Food, awesome beer selection!
We love this place! We come here monthly to check out the seasonal food and beer selections. The September menu is great but I cant wait for the Octoberfest beer and foods.The blackend grilled shrimp app was unbelievable and the turkey burger is back! Love, love, love the Greek salad with salmon!
This is also "sports fan" (and teen) friendly because they have large screen TVs in one room outside of the bar. The waitress we had was very knowledgeable about the menu and the draft beer specials. She was very kid friendly and made AMAZING chocolate milk! I wish I knew her name so I could give her a shout out!
Prices are very reasonable!

The Sunday Brunch is excellent. It has a broad variety of choices including seafood, a carving table, an omelet table and standard breakfast fare and deserts. The brunch is very moderately priced.

Not real easy to find
Well, to start off...the hardest thing is to find the restaurant...it's in a little strip mall, their sign does not stand out and the sign by the road (we went at night) was not lighted. Once there we easily were seated...it was not busy at all...not sure why we needed a reservation. The wait staff was great. The food was very good. I had Paella, another had a steak...looked great and the third in our party has crab cakes...(large and very nice). Great selection of beers etc. Overall a great find...literally...

Great local spot
For nearly 20 years my family and I have enjoyed the atmosphere , service and food at the Drafting Room. It is a great local spot. I went with my friends on Monday to watch baseball and football games and the service was very good and the food was consistent as always. The neat thing about the Drafting Room is the range if beers from complementary local home brews to other craft beers.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dine here from time to time. The service is always friendly, the menu is surprisingly varied for a local pub/restaurant, the execution is very good. Big beer list, good atmosphere, and not too noisy to be able to converse with friends while dining.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to go for Sunday Brunch. Food and service was excellent and it was not too overwhelming! Pricing was a great deal. Plan to go back again!

Matt Cermanski--The Voice--11/9/13
There was a minor mix-up with our reservation. The manager immediately remedied the situation and checked on us a few times to make sure we were happy. The service and food were great. I would return again and recommend it to others.
I am rating the noise level as energetic because we sat in the bar to watch the entertainment. We made reservations to watch him. There were four ladies who came to watch him because they had their picture taken with him. I don't know why they came. They constantly talked loud and didn't watch him perform at all. They were seated right in front of him. I imagine he was very annoyed. They were so RUDE. When we walked out, we noticed the rest of the people in the restaurant seemed quiet and respectful.
