I was really disappointed that I ordered a white claw and then I come to find you were out of it.

Great place to chill and have drinks and great food. The only thing is the parking gets a little tough at busy time, but it is definitely worth the wait.

Love it here, however when ordering on of our favorite items, they changed from the delicious salt bread to a Brioche roll, not as good. Otherwise it was great!!

First time there and very pleased. Cool vibe, good selection of beer, wine, etc and diverse menu, burgers to near-gourmet dishes. Had striped bass over risotto - fabulous. Will be going back soon.

Scott was an outstanding server; best service experience in a very long time, and I eat out a lot. The food was awesome, and it was hard to pick because there were several compelling choices. The mixed drinks were great, and the bartender came out to explain how he’d make it before he began the prep. The beer menu is fairly diverse, with some surprises (dogfish 120 min on deck). Outside at night with the fire on the deck was so good, and the high tops have extra place because they are aligned perfectly with the wide wooden railing.

A+ Highly recommended.

Always enjoy visiting this location. We love the outside seating area. I hope I coded the noise level correctly. We were not bothered by noise from any other table or customer. We were able to carry on a conversation without any issues. Food, service and everything else was fantastic.

It was a busy night so no room in the parking lot to park, I reserved a table online but when I got there right on time I was asked if I would mind a high top table, no other tables were offered. The service was excellent and our server did a great job. There were two of us. My friends meal she enjoyed very much, my meal was a poor choice, it was very salty it was an Asian dish with salmon on top the fish was very good and the sauces included were also good but the vegetables in the dish were mush and the sauce was to salty for me to eat. Eating outside was beautiful the patio was very nice and we did enjoy being outside.

The food is very good, different items on menu that most places don’t have. A little noisy for us, once in a while thats ok. Service was a little slow had to wait a very look time for dessert & check. Will try again but not On a Saturday night.

The wooden seats are far easier to keep clean but very uncomfortable if you don't have natural padding.
All restaurants, including 59 Almshouse, are so cold that you should be prepared with a sweater or jacket - and may née your food warmed up if you don't eat fast enough.

Food excellent as always. Didn't get the outdoor seating requested. Waitress ignored us after we ordered and we had to go to hostess for check. No dessert offered either.

Food is always great. Service was a little inattentive but understandable because of volume of people. Sat on bar side of restaurant- quite loud there. Nevertheless, a great place and great experience.

59 has a great energy, a nice large bar, patio dining and large dining room. The food is great; we had a seafood pasta special, which was delicious and hearty, and the table split several apps. Service was friendly and prompt, without too many interruptions. Overall, I'll be back.

I live in Doylestown, but it’s worth making the half hour trip down. My gf and I love it here. We’ve visited about 6 times since discovering the place in January and every time we’re amazed by the great food and friendly staff. The inside bar area reminds me of a ski lodge and the outside bar area is perfect on those spring and summer days.

The manager, Anthony, is always there making sure things run smoothly. I've never seen a manager so present and involved in everything from helping seat people to cleaning tables.
