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.

We were seated right away and our server was very friendly but the restaurant was packed so the food and drink deliveries were VERY slow. Thankfully, we ordered soup as an appetizer and bread was brought to the table, because we were not served our entrees until approx. 7:20PM (an hour and twenty minutes after we were seated). They appear to do a good take-out business as well so there was just a lot going on. It certainly looked like all hands were on deck (waitstaff and managers) to help deliver food so not sure if they were short staffed in the kitchen or just overbooked the restaurant. My mom and I both got the salmon and they were the slimmest pieces that I ever got at a restaurant (literally 1" x 5"). For $27, I feel that it should have been a more generous portion. My wife got the pork schnitzel and it was very overcooked. We've eaten here several times over the years and I remember it being a better experience, so I will chalk it off to the times we are currently living in. I will likely give it another try but may stick to a burger next time.

The place was filled to capacity with parents and kids' sports teams. One large group of well-behaved kids sat at a few tables pushed together, while the parents ate and drank at their own section of tables. Wondered why not seated in the other room and was informed there was a sports team party of 60. Just took forever to be seated even with a reservation and then waited forever for the food to arrive. Yes a pandemic and know help and cook shortage, however, we think the overcrowded main room didn't help.

Wish we would have known this prior to making a reservation. This info should have been one their website. Went to order a drink at 7:04 and told the bar was closed. Really? I've been here prior and service/food has always been good. This was just a bad experience.

We had the same waiter as the first time and he is a bit rough around the edges. I think it is because they are short staffed. There were 6 of us, celebrating our first time all together in almost 18 months so we were willing to overlook our waiter because we were not in a hurry. We had the American burger, Short rib grilled cheese, Reuben, Turkey club and Sweet potato fries, all delicious. We had a great time and will probably be back again.

It was perfect for our group of five. The waiter came over pretty quickly and brought us water and our drinks. The things we ordered were exactly as we ordered. Two of us took half home-everybody else ate every bit on their plates-we laughed and joked about possibly licking the plate it was so good.

House wines are quite good. I wished all of the servers were wearing masks. We were seated in a booth in the corner so able to hear each other over the din. The place was packed so they are doing something right!

Overpriced, and of the six items ordered, each one had something less than great about it. Add to that mediocre service, and I think 3 stars is generous.

We sat and chatted and enjoyed our delicious meal uninterrupted. We were there a very long time catching up and no one bothered us or gave us the feeling we should leave. We asked for our check when we were ready to go and it was a great visit and a great meal together
