We love Black Powder and rec it to all our friends.
We went here with a party of 6 people for dinner. The parking lot was a madhouse but the hostess directed us to park in the pick up spots so it turned out ok. Inside was very cute and the food was actually very good, as was our server.
We were having a really wonderful time until the end of the meal. We were waiting on our check and a last item from the kitchen that was taking quite a while (likely because they were so busy) when the manager (I’m assuming she was a manager - striped shirt, glasses, and a septum ring) approached our table and rudely said we had to go because they needed the table space. We were pretty taken aback considering we had been there less than two hours from when we sat down, had ordered more than six meals, multiple appetizers, and multiple rounds of drinks. Not to mention we were waiting on them to actually get out of there.
It really put a damper on the experience to have this unprofessional person try to rush us out the door without even bothering to pretend she cared about our experience or appreciated our business. Such a shame the place has trusted her to be an important face of the business.
What a great dinner with my husband and son.
Great service and great food.
Looking forward to going back .
We had a wonderful experience. Our server, Jay, went above and beyond. He was super helpful with our daughter’s gluten intolerance and just an overall great server. Food was excellent also!
We always enjoy our food and drinks and the staff at Black powder tavern. This time we met jaclyn (spelling) who was lovely. She introduced herself and we had a nice conversation with her. She is a great addition to your staff.
First time here. Met some friends who I hadn’t seen since the pandemic. Had a wonderful time catching up. We had two great appetizers a burger and a couple of reubins. Everything was great, service was exceptional and the place was very cool.
We all plan to meet again here!!
Our favorite go-to for lunch after our long walks in the park. Outdoor dining is a must in the good weather. Live it here!
We always enjoy dining at Black Powder and if we are lucky we get Jay as our server! He is SO knowledgeable about the history of the location and we love hearing about it. He is very attentive and friendly. The food is terrific too!!
I have always had great service and food at this restaurant. I brought two friends here for brunch. Both one of my friends and I ordered the avocado toast. It took forever to get our food and when it finally arrived it was ice cold and burnt to black on the underside. I also ordered sausage links and two of the links had been nuked to the point of being too hard to even cut. Although we did not complain, we were offered dessert on the house. One friend ordered the mini danish. Apparently, they were not too flavorful as he did not finish it. It saddens me to see this local eatery going bad.
Best burger husband has ever had, homemade bacon jam and blue cheese sauce! Fabulous authentic poutine. Fair prices, especially as so many restaurants have really increased prices during /after COVID
The service was outstanding!!
Always excellent food and libations! This is one of our “go-to” spots! Never a bad meal😁😁
Good neighborhood place. Food is good and some interesting things on menu plus basics. Nice draft beer selections. Servers and bartender get good grades - attentive and nice. Has outdoor patio and now has booths inside perimeter of bar area - very nice.
Best Onion soup around, Meal was wonderful, servers were very good and sociable, Valet parking, nice atmosphere. Its was a perfect dinner. I've been going and taking people here for years. Oh I forgot to mention, a great bar and bar keeps.
Everything was delicious and our server Alyssa was amazing and attentive. Would go again!
Great food, atmosphere and service!
Great food and drinks.
We were seated right away. Our server was very attentive. The food and dessert were very good.
went on a Wednesday night- 630pm, during- hoping, the end of covid. Server- Jacqui I believe was great. Accomodated food and drink choices. Great that the staff was open to being adaptable to request.
Have had 11 dinners here in 2.5 months and always loved it. Lunch menu pales in comparison in both selections and quality. Will continue to go for dinner (we have another reservation for next week!), but will not return for lunch.
Beautiful evening specialty burger dinner outside with wine
We entertained our best friends for their 50th anniversary coming up. Wonderful combo package of great food, wine, ambience, and service.
One problem with reserving a table on Open Table is that you can’t specify where you want to sit. We were put in the back room which I do not like...small, no ambience. Otherwise, food was great, service excellent, great waiter.
Waiting for the second meal which was wrong for 18 minutes after the first person meal. Glad I did not want to eat with the other person. No one at the restaurant said anything but was the food when late ok.
Our waiter was fighting with manager/kitchen staff during our visit. He was not attentive and we had a long wait. At the end of our meal, while some of us were still eating, he asked us if we are ready for our check and said "you don't want any desserts, right?". Ugh! Not a good mother's day experience for our dinner that night.
Great place! I would highly recommend. Service was outstanding. Food tasted great.
Black Powder was outstanding! The service was friendly and did a great job, atmosphere was so comfortable and the food was delicious! This was our first time dining (Mother’s Day) and we will definitely be back. Easy to get to and excellent parking too. 5 Star!
Let me say there was a misstep when I got there. Without going into details - they recovered well and served me one of the best fish and chip meals I have had. My server was knowledgeable and friendly. I like the place. Well lit and not to loud. My family really enjoyed the place. If you’re in Valley Forge- definitely worth the trip.
Way overpriced for a buffet and what was offered.
I will never again come to this restaurant for their Sunday buffet. A regular menu should have been offered also.
Went for Mother's Day brunch. The historic tavern was charming but the food was cold and overpriced. There was an over abundance of wait help but they seemed to ignore the customers.
Excellent Food great Mothers day brunch. Great selection of choices
My second time dining at the Black Powder Tavern. Very good food and great service.
On Mother’s Day, the place was completely packed, the lines were long for the buffet brunch and the manager was a complete a$$, telling us our time limit was up when we were never told there was a limit. The manager came back to our table 5 minutes later and rudely told us we had to leave because people were waiting for our table. For $39 per person we won’t be back!
It's back--and it's better than ever! Had a great dinner with fast, attentive service.
The best poutine around. The peanut butter whiskey was a unique drink menu item as well
Had reservations. But it was upstairs. Would have rather wanted it downstairs. The music was way too loud upstairs. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. I would go again. But stay downstairs.
Promptly seated after checking in. We made a reservation. The server was largely indifferent to us throughout the meal until the time he “suggested” that they needed our table for another party. We were at the restaurant for exactly 1 hour when this occurred. Good food, poor service.
Happy Hour is great! Smaller portions so the happy hour is a good value! Best beer selection by far!
The food was great! The service was great! The facilities were very nice! The outside patio was very nice! I would definitely like to come back again!
The food was delicious. The service was excellent. The poutine is the absolute best!
