We are going to miss the Broad Axe! It's a great place just for a drink or a nice dinner.
Service was horrible server was pleasant food was great
We chose Broad Axe because even on a Saturday evening, we didn't have to wait for a table. The warmth of the fireplace was welcoming on a cold winter night. The variety of options on the menu was extensive but not too overwhelming. Tables were far enough apart from other parties that you could speak at a comfortable volume with your own company. Portion sizes are generous. The beet and Gorgonzala salad was tasty as well as the French dip sandwich. I'm not a big fan of home made potato chips.
Food was delicious! Will be back for certain!
New Year’s Eve and could order off menu or the Package. Food was good and service was attentive.
We booked this restaurant at the last minute for New Years Eve, early dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. Their were 4 of us who wanted to grab a bite before going to church that evening. We didn't want to travel far and it was a halfway point between us and the couple we were eating with. We ordered our food and had a good time talking with each other. Once the food arrived we all enjoyed it thoroughly. I usually order burgers well done from places and they never quite get it right so I usually have to send it back for more cooking. Here they got it right. I did not have to send it back! The portions were great as well. My husband ordered from the New Year's Eve menu and the rest of us ordered from the regular menu. Everything we had was very delicious. Wonderful last minute choice. We will probably go again.
Out of 4 adults in our group, no one liked their meal. Sandwich rolls were stale. Chicken on Cobb salad was so dry it could not be cut. Waiter was working so hard because there were no bus boys/girls that we all felt bad for him.
We love your menu..... there's something for every ones taste and wallet !
Fun place for a bite to eat and to have drinks. Enjoyed the Trivia night!
It was the best burger I had in awhile and the beer was very good
Great place to eat!
Great service. Excellent beer 😊 Screaming toddler didn't help, but the parents weren't thrilled either. Husband loved his reuben.
Dear Broad Axe Tavern- Thanks for being our go to place for so many years. My wife and I had many impromptu dates and enjoyed being able to get good food at a fair price in our neighborhood. Please tell your dastardly landlords (who we are assuming drove you out) that they have a big hole to fill in Blue Bell. RIP #america’soldesttavern #TB12forever
Thanksgiving Day dinner was excellent and we highly recommend.
Good food - great service. Casual atmosphere.
Good service, good food, and a good beer selection!
Went for dinner with a bunch of friends. Great food and service!
Awesome stop on a Monday night. Quick, quiet, quaint. Loved the burger and the beer options.
Great place. Wonderful, attentive service. Really tasty and original items (especially enjoyed the fondue with smoked Gouda and lump crab meat). Dinner was faultless and desserts were delicious and just the right portion size. If we lived closer we would definitely frequent this place.
I had a much better meal when I ate at Broad Axe Tavern three or so weeks ago. It was ok this time.
I would go back there if the gang was going but there was nothing exceptional to make me drive there from Philly. The service was very good though.
Very disappointed. i\Will stick with Phil's next door.
Bare, crappy looking tables. Table cloths would do wonders. Had the Chicken Parm, just ok. Wife had a salad with chicken, she liked it. They could do a lot make the place look nicer without raising prices.
We had a great time bidding our friend adieu as he prepares to move to Dallas. The beers and food were delicious.
I forgot Thurs was the weekly trivia contest, so the noise level was fairly high even though they were nowhere near full. The were also short handed and it was a few minutes before anyone even noticed we had walked in and were waiting to be seated.
Overall the food was good; we had the quesadilla appetizer to share and they put the hot peppers on the side (our waitress suggested that as an option when we weren't sure if we wanted them). I had the fajitas and my only complaint was they brought out my tortillas, cheese and other toppings a good five minutes at least before the skillet with the meat, onions and peppers so the tortillas were barely still warm when I started eating. Taste was good though, with generous portions. My husband had the loaded axe burger and it was also very good.
Not the best visit we've had there, but not terrible and not annoying enough to put me off going again.
We had dinner at the Broad Axe Tavern prior to seeing "Biloxi Blues" at the Act II Theater in Ambler. We were seated in a booth that was very comfortable. The menu was varied and the three of us had no problem deciding. We were each very pleased with our choice. The waiter was great and the food delicious.
Honesty is the best policy and honestly this visit to the Broad Axe tavern was terrible. Starting with the glasses of ice water placed on the table that tasted like chemical (glasses clearly not rinsed properly). Our server took a long time to acknowledge our presence - other tables seated AFTER us were receiving their food before our orders even taken. Food was slow in coming out, so slow in fact others seated after us were done eating and leaving before we got our food. My turkey burger was brought out as a well done, dry beef burger... the kids pasta was tasteless (how do you screw up pasta and butter?). To boot the AC vent located above my seat was dripping water on me! I read some of these reviews and often wonder if the author is being real. I am very accurate in my review of the Broad Axe last night. The manager took the burger and another item off our bill for our ‘pain and suffering’.
First time going there and it was a great experience, the staff was very attentive and informative. The food and drinks was absolutely delicious, I had the crab mac n cheese. I am definitely coming back no question about it
The Tavern was a little disappointing, the food was inconsistent. Certain things are great - he Skippack salad and the Cobb Salad we ordered were wonderful. My father always enjoys their fish and chips. the crab cake sandwich was ok and the fries on the side tasted like the fryer oil had not been changed in a good long time - gave me an upset stomach. the shrimp tacos were ok - with a huge dose of jalapenos - not for the faint of heart. All in all pretty mediocre. Service was friendly.
Great place with great food. Only problem was public trivia game was too loud.
I haven't been to the Broad Axe in years and it looked really nice inside. Also appreciated the more casual dinning options.
I’m so sorry it took me so long to try this amazing restaurant. The atmosphere is beautiful- the service was friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely perfect. Price was on point - this might just be my new favorite place.
Wow - what a disappointment this dinner was! We had three for dinner. Drinks were delivered and I asked about the $13.95 Lobster Roll. The Server, who indicated that she was actually a Bartender, said that it was only one. Not sure what that meant but for $13.95, I assumed it was not huge or overflowing with lobster. Her response was that it was good but only one. I ordered it with the chowder. My two friends ordered burgers. The chowder was awful - some heavy spice that was not complementary. The
lobster roll" was only a lobster salad on a hot dog roll. The roll wasn't even toasted or buttered to pretend to be a lobster roll. How disappointing. The salad itself, small as it was, was good but it was clearly not a lobster roll. The two burgers had some spice in the meat that was overpowering. My friends couldn't even finish it as there was not enough water to wash it down. I'm not sure what is going on at The Broad Axe but we will not go back.
Mandarin salad with grilled chicken was very good. Might want to replace Asiago with a goat cheese though
Ordered the bone in grilled pork chop special. Came out and it was badly undercooked. Sent it back and it came out still undercooked. Sent back a second time and this time it was dried out and tough. I just gave up. No offer to take it off the bill and no apology from a manager. We will not be back.
Great food and service as always.
This is our go-to place.
One person's meal arrived with inedible chicken. Virtually nothing was consumed from the badly prepared meal. The management initially offered only a dessert! After an extended discussion with our server, a manager came out and comped the poorly prepared meal. A dessert was still offered, but we were charged for it. We have visited this restaurant at least a dozen times in the past, but have never had this poor level of service. The staff needs to receive considerable training to help satisfy customers.
My son graduated from North Penn. I asked; let’s get a bite, where do you want to go? He said let’s go to Broad Axe for a burger. You can never go wrong at broad axe for a great burger and a cold beer. The beer was for me btw. Lol
The staff were very accommodating and attentive. When I questioned how a particular drink was made after it was served to me, the bartender personally y came to our table to explain. The food was promptly served and everything was excellent. I will certainly go back for more.
The food was tasty but the service was a bit lacking considering the light crowd. My table was literally next to the bar and at one point I had to get up and get my own beer after our waiter went MIA. Speaking of beer, $6.75 for a pint of Fat Tire is a bit strenuous for this locale. [$4 for Miller Lite isn't much better...] Something odd happened, too - the waiter confessed to eavesdropping and then asked me to repeat and clarify the story I was sharing w/my friends. Who does that??
