Very good restaurant with good service. Friendly staff and varied menu. Food was very good other than cheese platter which was overpriced for what was provided.

I wasn't crazy about sitting in the bar area near the door and under the wall heater(HOT) - but ours was a last minute reservation and this was our first time here. Food and service were GREAT and not too expensive! We will definitely return.

What it lacks in ambience is made up for in flavor. Service was excellent and portions were large. Nice variety in the menu.

Food was good, but not great. Service was slow. Wooden chairs were hard. Bright white downlighting made it feel like a cafeteria.

Bummer that we were sat next to a bunch of other customers with so many open tables on Valentine’s. Would have appreciated a little more space, but the food was incredible

My husband and I went to enjoy their 4 course Valentine’s Day Special menu. Every course was delicious, our server was FABULOUS (Jacqui) and the overall experience was great! The owner/manager stopped by several times to check in and ensure our experience was superb.

Chambers 19 was amazing, great food, the staff was so friendly, they all stopped to talk to my 1 year old niece who was a little fussy at times. Our meal was perfect, the chef came out to make sure everything was done as we asked and the waitress made sure our drinks were always full and we had everything we needed!

We were misled by your website. We thought it was a high end restaurant but it was a diner with a bar in it. Very disappointed! The workers were very polite which was the only thing that was great. This pace is Not for dressing up and being romantic. We were overdressed. Website was very misleading. I made reservations for my husband and I for his birthday and we were disappointed. No romantic place. This is a diner. Wish it was better for the high end area if Doylestown pa

New Years Eve booked for dinner for two. When we arrived we were seated in the bar area. Extremely loud and patrons bumping into our table That part was absolutely obnoxious and ignorant Manager even asked bar patrons to move out of aisle so others could get through. That lasted 2 seconds. Was handed a small limited menu which was not advertised to us when we booked Asked if another table was open in the back. Told no all booked. Seems like a great bar atmosphere but consider not seating patrons for dinner in the bar. Will give you more bar space. We got up and told our host it was to loud and the menu issue and we left. Went next door, had a table open and we had a great dinner where we could actually hear each other and the host and waitress talk. Maybe another time for a drink but not for dinner Disappointed as we always heard about this place

What a wonderful way to start the New Year!!! From the moment we walked in and Rosie took are coats until the last spoonful of that delicious dessert(bourbon ice cream with the spicy pecans) it was a very memorable evening. Loved the fact that Matt, the owner came over to see if everything was okay. We will be back soon!! Rosie was the best as was our dinner!!

Chambers 19, which is billed as a "tavern", has a very eclectic selection of food, from sandwiches and quick bites to excellent seafood and meat entrees. We will definitely go there again! Also, they were willing to do separate checks for our party of 10, which was great.

We had a reservation and got in on time. Salads and drinks came promptly and were good. Entree’s did not show up for 1 hour 20 min. Waitress said they were out of mashed potatoes but that she was told would be ready in 20 min “which was 10 min ago”, which implied 10 more minutes. I complained about the delay and the manager said “We had hoped you would be more understanding”. Two of the meals came with mashed potatoes and I was told were good. My pasta came lukewarm ( was clearly waiting on the side) and without the broccoli mentioned in the menu. We got a full bill. We have too many good local restaurant options to tolerate this kind of fare.

I was in town visiting, and sampled a few different establishments in the area.
I stopped here for some Memphis BBQ Wings.
I'm from Illinois, so we don't get great wings out here, but these were just fantastic!
The bones were meaty, and the BBQ sauce was out of sight!
Tangy, Sweet, and bursting with flavor.
The service was caring and polite.
I would definitely recommend putting this place on the "must go to" list if you're ever in the area.
They had a poker night going on in the bar area, but it wasn't loud, and it appeared as though it was occupied by a bunch of locals, which made it seem very "homey".

Matt always has great options. It's noisy if you're at the bar area at night or in "The Other Side" (which is connected, but is all bar), but quiet in the main restaurant. Lots of choices in all price ranges.

We enjoyed the Sunday brunch at Chambers 19 during a trip to Doylestown. The offerings were pretty standard (pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, etc.) but were all very well prepared, and the cooked-to-order omelet was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive. Very good value for the money. Looked like it was popular with the locals -- always a very good sign.

The sticky floor suggests that could be cleaned more often. Plates also deserved better hygienic attention. Table waitress nice and helpful. Omelette station run by amateur, not familiar with the basics. Acceptable restaurant when there is no other option.
