Diner Reviews
  • "Service and atmosphere ok. The one plus is the long list of beers to choose from."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Great beer list to choose from. Food was mediocre. Service was absolutely top-notch."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food was okay, although it's a bit pricey. Needles to say, the beer list is impressive. The waitress came to our table so often that we felt rushed. She would start talking, even though we would be in the middle of conversation. It was very strange and annoying. The manager did the same thing during our dinner to ask us about our meal. The funny thing is, when we left, he looked right at us and never said goodnight. That said, this was our second experience at The Drafting Room. Our first visit was much better, so maybe they were having an off night."

  • "I arranged for 3 of my co-workers and I to have dinner here. I have eaten here for lunch with my family many times and I reccommend the Turkey Burger for lunch it is excellent. On our dinner visit we all had the 8oz filet and I must say for a restaurant that is not a true steak house the meat was a great cut and it was prepared perfectly. We all enjoyed the food, the service and would highly reccommend you to come here to enjoy this under the radar restaurant."

  • "We always enjoy The Drafting Room. Food is delicious, staff is super friendly and VERY hard working (including the owner) and the atmosphere is always relaxing. Would recommend for groups or dinner for two. Also an easy spot to grab a seat at the bar and watch a game. Try it; you will like it!"

  • "WE love the restaurant but it is so hit or miss. Sometimes the food is great and sometimes it is burned. The wait staff are awesome sometimes and terrible the next. The beer list is always good but not always cold."

  • "some dinners were good others were okay. Waitress was great."

  • " As usual, the food there is good to very good. The service was excellent. The server was fun and very helpful. My significant other doe have a few food restrictions and she was very helpful with the order."

  • "Of course, The Drafting Room is known for its extensive beer list. Our knowledgeable server was helpful with both the menu and beer suggestions, but not pushy in the least. The house beer is listed as a Harvest Ale, but she knew that as an IPA fan, I'd like it. She was right. My wife and I both enjoyed our entrees. Generous portions, but we stuffed in a crème brulee anyway. A very nice evening out."

  • "My wife and I ate there last night with another couple. I checked out the menu online before I went so I knew what the prices were beforehand. When we got there and sat down I was kind of shocked. The place seamed filthy. For the prices I would have thought it was a "Fine Dining" establishment. Other reviews I've read said it was a favorite in Exton, PA. Didn't see that either, at 7:00 on a Saturday night the place was almost empty. Food was great. Service was great. Just the upkeep of the building was awful. The window shade by my table was non-operational because the string broke and instead of fixing it someone "wired" it in place with a paperclip, and filthy. When I stood up I literally stuck to the carpet because it was so filthy. "

  • "Service was great! Looks like the menu has been pared down quite a bit since our last visit but there were ample choices for our dinner. Restaurant looks like it could use a little sprucing up inside and out."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "They have an excellent brunch and the service was outstanding!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • " wide variety of well prepared food items ran the gamut: from bagels & lox and eggs benedict to seafood to prime rib and a sweet table. Attentive service. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "The person making the wonderful omelets, should not also be the person carving the meat. The place was pretty busy, but not crazy, but he could not do both - handling 2 omelets at a time - we who were not wanting an omelet had to wait way to long for a piece of meat."

  • "Drafting room has a great Sunday Brunch, one of the best in the area. Excellent selection of well prepared food and a nice atmosphere. Staff is always cheerful and take good care of the customers."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "I've been here many times and it is always very good. This time, my family and I had an excellent brunch, with a terrific variety of breakfast and lunch items to choose from. The Bloody Mary I had was just spicy enough to kick start my day. Then I ate so much that I didn't even think about food again until about eight hours later. The restaurant was quite busy, but the staff could not have been more pleasant or attentive. I highly recommend brunch at the Drafting Room!"

  • "We were there with 11 people for my son's birthday. The food was good, but the server seemed a bit overwhelmed. She would ask one of us what we wanted and miss the rest of the group. All in all, it was a good experience. There's a very good beer selection, and a good variety of choices on the menu. I found some sand in my mussels, but the flavor of the sauce was good. The salad was very good. This is a good place for an upscale casual meal with friends. "

  • "Terrible service throughout the meal despite a ton of staff running around. It took minutes to noticed by a hostess and once seated out waitress just shouted questions at us while serving other tables. It took 10 min to get drinks, and so long to get appetizers that we forgot we ordered them. The only time we received decent service was when the rest of our section cleared. And even then it was still noisy! We had to shout at each other. Better off sitting at the bar where it is ironically quiet. The food was ok- filet, lumpy mashed potatoes and steamed green beans-but expensive for what you got. For 4 people, without dessert, $150 is way too much for that experience. We won't be coming back."

  • "The food from the Appetizers to the Main Course was not hot, and the french onion soup was so bland Campbell s makes a better canned soup. The wait staff was not very attentive. Won't be back ever."

  • "Met some friends at the Drafting Room for Happy Hour so our food choices were bar foods. The sliders and wings were very good. Service was adequate. We sat in the dining room which was conducive to talking. All in all it was a pleasant experience."

  • "I haven't been to the Drafting room for quite a while. And I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Awesome service, wonderful food, huge variety of both hot and cold items. Glad to see the Omelet and Carving stations are still a fixture. This place is still a relevant and professional destination. Kudos!!!"

  • "Offered both quiet dinner in the restaurant or choose the bar which was first come first serve.. which we did and were seated before we finished our first drink. They had live music from 8:30 till 11:30 taking requests made it a great night out not just dinner. The menu had lots of fun choices all great and a good value as well. In this area where I live you would have to pass by 100 restaurants traveling 30 minutes to get there and it was well worth it,"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The service was out of this world! For this reason we will return. The crab and corn chowder was great however the main entrees were just average. The mashed potatoes lacked flavor and the broccoli was too crunchy. The pork chop was tasty but not amazing. They have a nice menu with a lot of potential but the actual food was not as good as we hoped. Will try again."

  • "I was I the area on business with a colleague and this restaurant was recommended. We enjoyed the food and service. Both were very good."

  • "It was our second time there for brunch and we were not disappointed! Food was great with a nice selection. Recommend this to friends for brunch that is reasonable!"

  • "I have been wanting to try their Sunday Brunch for almost a year and finally went this past Sunday. It did not disappoint. There was a nice variety of foods and everything was hot. My favorite was the crab benedict that you order as part of the buffet. It was delicious! I will definately be going back."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We loved it here! The food was out of this world and great draft beer list! Our server was super funny and attentive! We will definitely go back!"

  • "Had a very enjoyable time. The waitress was awesome. She fulfilled everyone's needs. Will be happy to return again & again."

  • "Probably bad sign that our group of 4 were the only ones in the bar at 11pm on a Friday night. Not a very popular place in Exton."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Friendly and welcoming service. Server was wonderful. food was very good and wine choices were good as well. it is a bit noisy at dinner, but we would come back again, just a bit later in the evening."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Fried chicken sanwich was very good. Raspberry iced tea lacked any flavor. Mussles were good sized portion with sweet potato fries on top. Not a fan of Sweet Potato fries they serve with everything, but outside of that I would go back again."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We were celebrating a birthday and the waitress gave us enough time to have cocktails, open presents, and have a great time while we were there. We all agreed the food was delicious and would return soon. The price is right for the amount of good food that you receive!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Delicious food. A step above in culinary choices while maintaining an impressive beer selection."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We went for a birthday dinner and all 5 of us were happy with our entrées. My peppercorn blackened ahi tuna with lemon preserve risotto and grilled asparagus was exceptional. Always something new to try. My husband loves the extensive beer list with its variety of bottled beers."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Saturday night out. Made an 8pm res, but based on crowd, looked like we didn't need it (may have been due to weather). We sat in the bar anyway to hear the live music that was starting at 8:30. I got Texas BBQ Brisket (recommended by the server) and wife got seafood fettuccine. Mine was very good, not spectacular, but hers was excellent! Great blush sauce and lots of nice plump shrimp plus crab meat. All in all, a very good dinner. Worthy of coming back again for sure. Server was attentive, but not especially friendly."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The food was very good and the specials were varied. We were there early on New Year's Eve, the specials included a Lobster Ravioli, Lamb and Steak. Our server was excellent. The beer selection was excellent as well including many on tap. This is a nice spot for locals."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Sun. Brunch buffet ~. My husband like his shrimp cocktail, and omelet w/ bacon and mushrooms. My spinach, mushroom and cheese omelet was just so so. The only other things I could try were home fries which were cold with so many forkfuls of skins left on the onions, and pasta salad which had too much mayo and not enough flavor. I am highly anaphylactic to pork and shellfish so it disturbed me that the chef was proud that he wipes out pans after each omelet w/ a bleach soaked rag. A bleach soaked rag that gets used on every pan, regardless of what was in the pan, is not very smart. You're just carrying bits of whatever from all the other omelets."

  • "My wife and I visited The Drafting Room for our Anniversary. We were very pleased with both the service and the food (the cheese dishes were very good!). We have also been for Sunday brunch and were much impressed. The Drafting Room will be a go-to night out or special occasion destination from now on. Keep up the good work!"

  • "Great for a casual evening out. Large craft beer menu but they make a great martini. Excellent specials to choose from and the regular menu looks good. Desserts somewhat limited but we are not big dessert eaters."
