Craftsman’s row is a great tavern with a rustic feel. The food and service was amazing. My friend and I enjoyed the performance by Austin as well. We will definitely be back.

Wow! Love this place. they were very accommodating. we have reservations for 6 pm and surprisingly we got there early and they had our table all ready. The food ROCKS we had buffalo cauliflower, calamari, and their homemade potato chip nachos as an appetizer. for the entree, we had burgers and Salmon BLT.
everyone in our party raved how good the food and service is. They will differently be seeing more of us.

The people were very welcoming and friendly, and the onion soup was very good. But.... both the chicken Capri sandwich and the Cobb salad were very ordinary. The chicken on both was dry, tough and overcooked. Disappointing quality for the price.

The food is fantastic! The burgers all have two patties on them, all the portions in general are very large. It’s a little dark so if you have trouble seeing, definitely break out the phone lights.

Our waiter was Zummy he was great!! The food was amazing. We went for restaurant week. For appetizers for the Doritos mozzarella sticks, & cauliflower buffalo wings. For our second course we had lobster Mac & cheese (the best I’ve ever had!) & calamari. Thirds course I had the buffalo chicken sandwich & my husband and the salmon. Both were phenomenal. And for dessert I had the s’mores milkshake & my husband has the banana foster milkshake. We will defiantly be going back!!

Looking at the menu it seemed like we would like pretty much everything on the menu. In execution not so much. Burgers dry and over cooked. Mac and cheese runny. Fries soggy with no crispy bots to be found. Not a stellar meal by any approximation. Service was spotty at best. Doubt we will be back.

The food was delicious, the service was amazing, fast, prompt, took very good care of my wife and I. We're a but of picky eaters and there were no issues with our requests and they were on point. I recommended the place to a friend and he went the next day and had an amazing experience as well. Ilook forward to the next visit.

This place is RIDICULOUSLY GOOD!
The burgers and milkshakes are SO fun and taste even better! We came here for my husband's birthday with our two teen boys (after drooling over their Instagram feed for a while) and everyone was stuffed and happy when we left! The Cereal Killa and Brotherly Love shakes are amazing as are the French Toast Burger and Donut & Fried Chicken Sandwich!

I usually really like it here, but this time around left a lot to be desired. The service was absolutely horrible and rushed and I would have sort of understood if the place was incredibly busy, but it was not. I still don’t even know the name of our male waiter because he had zero interest in the world in providing even decent customer service. No suggestions or details on food and drink selections.

As for the food, aside from the incredible milkshakes, it was extremely underwhelming and not like it has been in my previous visits. Still very interesting menu with interesting and wonderful combinations but just really lackluster both in taste and presentation.

All in all, still decent for an interesting night out with friends or coworkers, just don’t expect anything more than what it’s name suggests… A saloon. It lacks that “next level” experience as it had in the past. And... that’s a real shame.

The Craftsman Row Saloon was in all words average. We had 6 people try it, where we ordered almost every appetizer off the menu. The food was just soggy. There was no crispy texture, and lacked seasoning. The best items were the alcoholic milkshakes, which had flimsy straws. The best food item were the stout-glazed wings, but they need to be fried longer!

We had reservations for 6:00pm. Got there, and the place was packed. The hostess got us a table anyway within 2 minutes. Despite the crowd. we were served and out again in under an hour to get to the theater. This place rocks. Staff are super friendly. Food is excellent--way beyond "bar food". Normally laid back, but under pressure, they also perform exceptionally well!

The overall draw for us was seeing a photo of a Gritty milkshake on social media. It was not on their menu, listed as a special or advertised anywhere in the restaurant--sort of a secret off-menu item, I suppose. Our server was super accommodating in crafting the milkshake beautifully. The Gritty element ended up being an adorable donut with frosting that was fairly stale, but I suppose you are paying for the appearance, not necessarily the taste.

The bar is dark and the sports on the many televisions were loud, the server forgot part of our order and took a unusually long time to follow up or give us our check, but the food that we ordered was pretty tasty especially the gravy on the poutine and the french onion soup.

The service and menu have improved
I wish they would add healthier vegetables options such as steamed spinach
As indicated before the burgers are very salty
There are healthy entree mains such as salmon and chicken
The onion soup is tasty

Good beer list. Friendly server. Wings were okay. Cauliflower wings were not— caked in mushy batter and taken out of the fryer way too soon. inedible. Burger was over cooked and meh. Cheesesteak was the kind of creation you get in places far from Philly that advertise Philly cheesesteaks— like the person who made it doesn’t know what it’s meant to be.

We were disappointed with everything compared to what we read online. We made a reservation only to find upon entering that it was 'seat yourself'. The first person to greet us was the waitress 10 minutes after we entered. Table was dirty, beer flat and food was over seasoned or saturate in sauce. We really wanted to like this place base on positive reviews and great food & drink menu, but everything was disappointing. Too many other places to try before giving this place another chance.

Good bar food and drinks. We started with spicy nachos which had lots of ground beef. The French onion soup was delicious. I had a cheese burger with sweet potato fries. The petition was so large I took half home.

Visited here during Restaurant Week on my lunch break. I was served quickly and the staff were friendly. The four cheese macaroni and cheese wasn't that great, but the donut fried chicken made up for it. I think I will stick with bar food next time.
