Contemporary American
Since 1746, the building that houses this tavern has played a part in the establishment of our nation; first as a respite for stagecoach travelers expanding westward and later as a covert rendezvous point for George Washington, Marquis de Lafayette, and other leaders of the American revolution. It is believed that during the infamous winter of 1777–1778 at Valley Forge, a major figure in the Continental Army, master military mind Friedrich Von Steuben, designated the tavern as a secret black powder munitions stash for Continental Army couriers. All the while, the tavern continued to provide food, shelter and cheer to the hungry, weary soldiers fighting for their independence. Today, we honor our historic tavern’s tradition with a mission to raise the spirits of our guests. We invite you to experience the small and large plates, craft beers and revolutionary hospitality that is Black Powder Tavern.

    I was disappointed in the service we had though our initial server was very quick to take our drinks and meal order however, another server came with our entrees. She brought three out and said she’d be back with the rest, we had to ask after about 5 mins for the rest of our meals. Apparently the second server had forgotten to bring them. An apology was given. I go to black powder often and this was the first time I was disappointed with service.

    Food was good - standard pub fare. We were seated in back section - the room was very loud due to a large party of adults and kids. The kids were super loud. Our waitress and manager were very accommodating in moving us to a table in the front room.

    Black Powder is one of my favorite restaurants. Have dined here many, many times and the food is always fantastic. The manager is very accommodating. The drinks are great! The servers are pleasant and always check on you to make sure everything is just the way you want it. The cook even came out to see if we were happy with our salmon dinners, which we definitely were! Love this restaurant.

    It was a great place to have a delicious yet simple family meal following our son's graduation from Cabrini University. The staff was warm and courteous, the food was outstanding, and we enjoyed the rustic atmosphere. Would visit again if we were in the area.

    I normally don’t like to judge a restaurant on a holiday but this past Mother’s Day was our worst dining experience ever!! The menu online looked so appetizing, but was so disappointed in the taste of all of their food!!
