    Server was too soft spoken for a loud environment. Food took over an hour to come out and our son’s meal was cold, not even room temperature. When we told our server, she told the manager and he immediately came to us to rectify the problem and was very apologetic. We will give the restaurant another try, as we do know every restaurant has bad days.

    Half food was cooked correctly, half wasn’t, no waitress came back to tell. Restaurant was cold, even colder by them opening an outside door near our table.

    It was a special evening out for my wife and I, valentine's day was a good reason to go to founding fathers for dinner. Food is always good and service was outstanding, plus the special valentine's dinner plans was a nice price. We will be going back soon and often.

    First time going there ever and on Christmas Eve. My filet mignon was delicious, wish I had more. My garlic parm fries amazing. My daughter had grilled chicken and homemade chips. She really liked them. The service was exceptional. I will definitely be back for more steak. Thanks for a great first experience.

    Had a reservation for 5:30 pm. Came early was sat right away water was at the table in minutes. Then order app,s and dinner all at once We ordered steak egg rolls and mot sticks for an appetizer. While we waited for the app,s to come out. 4 other tables including the table behind me and my family Needless to say it got to be 6:35 pm and my dinner still was not at my table But the other four tables including the behind me and my family had had there food come out to there tables. So I ask for a manager. 6:45 pm and still no manager. I got up and started walking to the door and the manger came out of the kitchen and his first words to were. I am TRYING to find out what happened. For real ? Just now TRYING to find out what happened. Never ever going back

    The service was very good. We were seated at a booth and asked to be moved to a table because the booth was too small for the four of us. The waitress was very accommodating. The food was delicious and served in a timely manner. The only complaint we had was that the music was too loud and it was difficult to carry on a conversation with the rest of our guests.

    Our first impression was awful. We felt the place us shabby. The were holes in the wall were the table side jukeboxes used to be mounted. Wires from the wall mounted TV’s were dangling. The noise in there is deafening, initially from a kids birthday party, but also from the crowd at the bar. It seemed like an eternity to get our food. I blame the kitchen, not our server who was very nice and attentive. When the food finally did arrive it was very good. Our grandsons had the kids burger and pizza. They both gave them thumbs up. My wife had the patty melt and she said it was very good. I really enjoyed my crispy calamari and the mushroom Swiss burger. Will we be back? Doubtful. Too many better options. People seem to love it though, so I wish them success.

    Food and drinks were good. Our server wasn’t so good. He forgot to put on one of our orders. She received she’d food after everyone had finished eating. Forgot to put in drink refills and we ordered dessert waited about 15 min and then when asked about it he said oh we are out. Just bad service.

    Me and my husband went yesterday for the eagles game. Real nice place we enjoyed ourselves. I ordered the short rib it was delicious only problem was it was more fat than meat I ate because it was delicious so they got a pass lol. My husband ordered a burger medium well it came out hard and dry with no taste to his liking. One of the managers came over VERY NICE GUY took the burger off our check, and made sure we was ok. The waiter needs work. She first came to take our order never told us her name didnt speak just ask did we want something to drink. Came back 25 min later ask if we wanted food smh. We barley seen her all night and when she did come by just rude rushed us to order rushed his to pay as well (drop check off went over to the side and stared at us until we payed) im law enforcement i have money to pay for whatever i wanted and when we did order she looked at us like we had 3 heads. I had to ask if she heard me or not. My husband had to tell her 3 times in an hour he didn't like his food. I had to wave her down and tell her the 4th time please take this plate he don't want it. She looked at me and rolled her eyes and ask my husband ur not going to eat it🤯 she needs alot of work people coming to spend money.

    We went during the soft opening & weren’t impressed. We decided to try it again since they had been open for a little while & we were glad we did. We went on a Friday night. There was a DJ playing “oldies”. When did the 70’s become the oldies? :) The music was good, food was good & drinks were tasty. I will go back.

    I showed up 40 minutes early to enjoy a cold beverage at the bar. There were no seats available at the bar at 6:20 pm and there was another bar right next to it but it remained closed. The outside seating are was also closed. I am a warm person so the temp inside was about 4 degrees to warm for me so I was wiping my brow with a handkerchief the entire time there.I got two drinks at the bar over that 40 minute period but had to sit by the waiting area at the entrance. We enjoyed the food and service when we were seated.

    Service was good, attentive. Unfortunately we took our server’s suggestion and got the half price chicken nachos during the Phillies game. I love nachos and was so excited…but these were sloppy, soggy, and had a strange sauce. There was ONLY sauce, chunks of chicken and some mozzarella. No lettuce, olives, sour cream, tomatoes etc. The menu did not mislead but I guess it was just not what I expected. Very unusual. We followed up with a special of the day-mozzarella bruschetta. Tiny slivers of bread that could not even hold 5 pieces of diced tomato without it falling off, let alone the small tasteless mozzarella balls they put on. No basil, there was a nice balsamic on the plate that you could kind of mop up…overall all of the food including the chicken cheesesteak and fries were all very underwhelming. Ambiance was fine, though they switched the Phillies game off on all of the tvs near us to the Preakness as soon as we sat down which was a bummer. Has potential to be a great place to watch a game but food needs to improve.

    I would not recommend right now. It was our first time. I was not happy with my food. Over seasoned and dry potatoes, burnt carrots. I could not identify the chicken pieces. Lots of bone, not much meat, rubbery skin and tasteless. Cheese steak spring rolls were tasty. We may try again as this is a new restaurant. I don't want to judge on one meal.

    I was hoping for a great new go to sports bar. The service was good. I would go back to have drinks but I was not impressed with the food. The best thing we had was the Mac and cheese with the short rib. That would be the only thing I would get a second time. Skip the wings and the cheesesteak. The cheesesteak meat was tasty but that roll, yuck.

    Our reserved table was ready for us when we arrived. We sat by the side bar so we could be close to the dance floor. Our bartender Aseam came right over to take our order. We ordered a Manhattan & Cosmo & Aseam asked what liquor we preferred. Which I thought was very nice. Delicious cocktails. Then he took our food order. Food was delivered promptly. Only concern we had was the French fries were cold but...still delicious. Chicken cheese steak and shrimp Chipotle app both very good. Aseam keeping checking on us and actually came out to share some dance moves. He has great energy! Overall experience was great! Dance was happening! Fun Night!
