TJ was a very accommodating host and obviously puts a lot of heart into every aspect of his restaurant. The dishes were creative, thoughtful and executed well and the dining room was very well appointed. This is exactly the type of local gem I look for when dining out.

We will not be going back to the Mechanic Street Station. As soon as we entered the restaurant we were met with an extremely rude waiter. To our surprise we found out the rude waiter was in fact the owner of the restaurant. Attempting to stay respectful we sat down to eat dinner. However, the mood had already been ruined and the service continued to be disrespectful at a minimum. After experiencing extreme discomfort we decided it was best to leave. We left respectfully even thanking the staff knowing it was not all their fault and instead of being met with hospitality we were met with extreme hostility. Please, do not go to this restaurant if you want to be treated with any ounce of kindness, respect, and comfort.

Our new Favorite restaurant in New Hope! Don’t pass this one by! This was our 3rd visit. T.J., one of the partners served us. He’s a joy to talk to. He knows the menu inside & out, more than willing to make changes, it’s obvious that his goal is to provide a great experience to their guests! My date had the halibut and raved about it. I had scallops that were done to perfection with a lime sauce with fresh corn kernels. An added bonus at the Station is Phillip. He is a server but he also prepares all of the deserts which are wonderful! We had his Strawberry Shortcake which was wonderful! He also makes the Chicken Liver Pate which is the best!
The entire staff makes us feel like “regulars” after just a few visits.
Treat yourselves and make a reservation at this gem!

Excellent food and service. Asparagus with prosciutto and shaved parmesan. Some of the staff are former staff from the (now closed) Raven. Their service was friendly and efficient there and they brought the same to the Mechanic Street Station.

We enjoyed the evening. Our server was a little slow but super nice. Overall the meal was good except for the special steak offering. It wasn’t a good cut of beef. We are accustomed to very high quality beef and it wasn’t to our standards. Still enjoyed the evening overall and would go again.

we had the potato skins as a special they had for appetizer and it was a three cheese blend and was absolutely amazing. I had the scallops and my husband had the chicken as well as the arugula salad.. Everything we had was as delicious as it could get. You definitely pay for what you get.

We went to Mechanic Station for our 36th Anniversary! Haven't been here since the new owners took over. The place has had a beautiful upgrade! Beautiful little place! Lots of interesting art pieces, the deck looks great for outdoor dining! Our server was knowledgeable and had a great personality which helped make dinner a fun experience. We came on a Wed night, which is steak night at the Station. We both ordered the 10 oz filet's. Wonderful flavor, cooked just right to our liking. Baked potato and veggies were delicious. We are definitely looking forward to our next visit on a weekend to try out the full menu choices! Highly recommend for romantic dinner or even a place to come with the kids for an early dinner!

My daughter and I were attending a friend’s performance at Bucks County Theater and had dinner at Mechanic Street Grill. What a wonderful surprise! We had the poached salmon and NY Strip with a special sauce. I will tell you what I told them. I haven’t had a sauce that good on a steak since Bruges Belgium. It made a nice piece of beef into a gourmet experience. Service was done as a team from whom I learned that most of the wait staff also contributed culinary ideas. It showed, the staff were quite sincere In their recommendations and descriptions. Pride of service was experienced that was relegated to legendary status in Europe 25 years ago. Rustic interior with a few tasteful modern fixtures.

There will never be enough stars/words to describe mine and my wife's experience at Mechanic Street Station Friday evening. The food was exquisite, the environment was the perfect setting for a (much needed) date night for my wife and I, and the service was above and beyond, but more importantly, friendly and welcoming. The team at Mechanic Street Station, including TJ and his service staff, make you feel like family; they make you feel as though you've dined with them many times before, even if it's your first time. I cannot recommend this place enough for a cozy date night or for a family get together. The environment/ambiance will be enough to bring you back numerous times; the food is what will keep you wanting more!

Mechanic Street Station is a charming, beautiful, comfortable restaurant. Social distancing was easy, and we felt very comfortable on a cold winter evening. One of the best meals I've had in New Hope; the beef wellington and mushroom ravioli should not be missed. A great staff and amazing service. One of our favorite spots. Keep up the good work!
