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.

Had the Big Ale Burger, my dinner companion had the Fish & Chips. Burger was good, cooked as I asked, plenty of flavor. Fish and Chips were also good with a nice light batter on the cod. I had Conshohocken Type A IPA which was good on draft - the selection of beers on tap was very good - my companion had a Cosmo which was OK but nothing special. Our waitress was very good, attentive without being annoying and had a good sense of humor. Liked the place overall, will definitely go back.

The ambiance was nice although pretty loud in the back room. They have a good selection of draft beers. Unfortunately, the food is only mediocre. Two folks at my table ordered medium rare burgers and they were clearly cooked to different temperatures. I got the meatloaf which tasted like it was made with very fatty meat as it was unpleasantly heavy. We ordered all three desserts which were okay but unremarkable. Not one person in our group of eight said anything good about their food during the meal.

Great tasting food (had Pork Belly wraps, Shrimp and Grits and Big Ale Burger + 2 wonderful choices of beer). Nice service. Interesting and comfortable ambiance. And very good value for all the above. Definitely coming back for more.

The restaurant was very busy and we were grateful for the valet parking as there were no open spots to be found. We had a reservation and were seated very quickly. The service was great and the food was delicious. The noise level was a little high but that may have just been the larger parties seated in the same area along with the Kentucky Derby crowd. Overall good experience and we will be back.

My salmon was over salted and the potatoes and asparagus were underwhelming. My wife’s fish was inedible (veggie burger). And when she said something about it, their response…some people either love it or hate it. It was plain mushy. Now I know why we typically drive past it versus eat there.

We’re on the email update list. Advertised Cinco de Mayo margaritas and tacos. Turns out not tacos for dinner just Happy Hour special. Actually that was my fault, guess I misread the advert. Stopped at the bar for cocktails before dinner. Bartenders were busier laughing and joking with each other than paying attention to customers. Shame but I guess it’s time to take a break from visiting Black Powder.

One thing I would say that needs improvement is the hostess at the front door. No personality, not pleasant, did not speak, even though myself and my friend greeted her with a "hello, how are you today, I have an 11am reservation under the last name Beaudet....." She said nothing, nothing. Gave us a blank look like she didn't know what day of the week it was. Showed us to our table, we thanked her again, she dropped the menu's and walked away. When we left, we tried again and said "thank you so much, we really enjoyed our meal" and again, just a blank look, no words. If she doesn't like dealing with the public and being polite and courtesy to customers, she should find employed elsewhere.

We have lunch on the porch after a good hike in Valley Forge Park. We sit in the bar area if we want a casual dinner but our favorite is the "Founder's" Room where you can dine superbly under the watchful eye of Benjamin Franklin (& others) in a more intimate & delightfully historic atmosphere! My salmon & asparagus was cooked to perfection. It always has a good crowd, tho' Saturday night can be very noisy!

Waiter was fine but he just had way too many tables. Parking was difficult even with valet available -- just no room to navigate. The food was average but not up to what we have experienced there before. Overall, a disappointing visit to a restaurant we have enjoyed many times.

Our young female server was super. I wish I remembered her name. Three of us loved our dinners but my husband’s steak was tough and he didn’t get a steak knife. On the plus side, he ordered it well done and it was. The bread was delicious also. I wish there were more dessert choices.

Have the blood orange margarita. It’s inspired. Loved our server - she was so bubbly and interactive - but my bad- I can’t remember her name. But the servers are all warm and welcoming. It’s a great place!

It was really crowded, and although we were promised a booth at 6:30, when we got there at 6:20, we were told it would be a half-hour wait. We were given a table in the middle of the room, but then I spied an empty booth and asked if we could have it. The answer was yes, thank goodness. After that, the place almost totally cleared out. So we suggest booking for after 6:30 on a Sunday. I always get a salad with Salmon that I normally love, but this time, I did not care for the taste of the salmon. Something has changed about the glaze (?). Not sure what. Hopefully, the chef will use something more appealing in the future. Otherwise, we enjoyed our evening.
