The atmosphere was so random in every area of the place, from what felt like an old dining room, to a tiki bar vibe. The food was good, meaning the appetizers. Ordered shepherd's pie for a meal and it was not good, tasting of old taco meat with some mashed potatoes thrown on top. The service was fine but we felt so rushed, every few minutes since we sat down we were asked about ordering, not even a chance to look at the menu or drinks. I was trying to have a nice night out, not time how fast I can sling back some drinks and inhale a few plates of food. Can't say I'll be returning.

I thought the food was very tasty. The scallops and steak were cooked perfectly to my liking and it was elegant. They had a wide beer list, which will fit anybodies pallet.

It was the single greatest experience I've ever had. I've been to so many restaurants in Doylestown and none compare. THE FOOD. Oh my God. The best French onion soup and ribs I've ever had. The price is fantastic. The people are very kind. My new favorite place ever.

Good place for a quick meal and some live music. Not too fancy but ideal for a nice night out on Main St. Doylestown... attached to a great bar as well.

Nice spot. Fish tacos were a treat and they prepared a side of fried green tomatoes for my wife that was off menu, which she really enjoyed. Great service from Carly.

Same complaint about most restaurants—music too darned loud! But everything else was great—food delicious and decent proportions, great service (though we were virtually the only patrons) and good location right on a Main St. in Doylestown.

It was a mistake to visit the Chambers 19. We ended up leaving since staff was confused as to who will serve us (10 minutes wait), food offering was a buffet, the place did not appear welcoming at all.

We went there to try it for restaurant week. It’s $35.00 I’ll never get back. The bisque was cold (waiter never came over to see how it was) and my chicken entree was VERY dried out and had no taste!! My beer was good!!!

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.

Real nice choice in the heart of Doylestown. Menu was big enough to accommodate a large group's tastes.
