Everyone was helpful & friendly. Food was very good. Price was lower then I thought it would be for a Sunday brunch. Will definitely be back

I really enjoyed the buffet, the food was scrumptious and the service was well paced and friendly. I especially liked the omelette bar!

The only reason for the lower rating is we always eat in the bar and it is noisy. We like it that way. However, if you don’t like noise you can always sit in the dining room and that is awesome too. Our server was excellent and the bartender makes the best drinks!! Always an enjoyable evening. Reservations definitely suggested. 😊

I told my out of town buddy so much about the brunch, I couldn't wait to take him there. We were the only 4 people there at 9am and the only customers there when we left at 10am. I know why now. Upon our arrival, the waiter asked if we wanted a beverage. We all asked for coffee and water. 10 minutes later we got our coffee and never got water. The guy making omelets had a bad attitude and undercooked the omelets. The restaurant has taken a huge step backwards and the only reason I didn’t ask to speak to the manager was the hostess, who was very friendly.

Drink prices were very high. Food prices were good, but food wasn't great.

Funny and laid back wait staff. We wanted to take our time to eat and relax and our server let us do so even with us coming in within the last pie of the open kitchen. Great food and they allowed us to make simple changes to adhere to our gluten free dairy free lifestyle. Would definitely return if ever in the area again. Live music up front was nice and had we not been on a schedule we would stopped and enjoyed another drink at the bar!

Decent. Nothing special. Soup was good.
Too much sauce over scallop dish, just dumped on plate & overwhelmed dish rather than a drizzle

Have been coming for more than 7 years. Made reservations and dispite a very busy Saturday they had no problem honoring the reservations with no delays.
Menu always changes, which keeps things fresh. There is no risk of getting tired of the menu.
Louis our server was attentive, able to add some personality to service and listened.

Sunday brunch is always a favorite with us.. Chambers is a great meeting place. The service is always friendly, the food quality is good and we always leave smiling.

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.

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!
