Excellent food, service and drinks. Would go back for brunch again.
Handled a large party of nine with ease. Very efficient!
Bottomless mussels for $12!!! 4 delish sauces to mix & match. I had 3 bowls; my friend had 4. Yummy.
Drafting Room is going down hill in my opinion. We went in on Sunday shortly after 7PM. The Drafting Room wasn't very busy. There were 2 salad orders/one cup a soup and the salmon. The food took forever, the waitress was very inattentive to clearing the table or asking for drink re-fills. The meal was overly expensive for two small salads/soup/and salmon.
I have had many nice meals at the Drafting Room, this was not one of them. Service was and is usually very good, not a crowded night so a relatively quiet room. Food was very disappointing. I requested the Salmon be cooked more to the well side and it was not. The Crab Cake was loaded with chunks of green pepper and onion, would have preferred crab instead. Peanut Butter pie, the primary request of the birthday girl was deflated and unappetizing. The Manager sent us home with a piece of carrot cake instead. I'll go back based on my previous history with this establishment but maybe not on a Monday.
Good food. Beer list was decent. Employees were super friendly.
The Drafting Room is one of my go to restaurants in the Exton area. Superb beer selections and food is always well prepared. This was a men's Monday night out gathering and most of us took advantage of TDR's standing Monday night special which is bottomless mussels. They offer 4 different broths and i had them all. Delicious and absolutely the best meal value around.
This restaurants needs to be renovated. It looks old and out of date and has a strange layout. Bar could be expanded.
Fabulous buffet with great ood. Can't wait to go back with different friends.
The food was ok, nothing to write home about. The place is in dire need of a facelift.
Ordered pretzels which came with a very good and abundant dip. Sister ordered the brisket. I had a burger. Burger was pretty good. Brisket was mostly inedible - tough and dry and next to impossible to slice. Server Will was prompt with his visit and offered to take it away and get something else. Sister asked for pierogies. Meantime the manager came over and apologized. She was proactive and said the kitchen had a rush order on the pierogies. Big mistake. They were charred, dry and lacking any significant sauce. Will came promptly again and was informed of the problem. Took meal away and the manager came over again apologizing and comping our entire dinner. Nice touch to salvage a not so nice experience. Since I do not live here, I won't be back, but my sister said she might give it a try at some distant-future date. Thank yous go to both the server and the manager. Negative stars for the kitchen.
Frequently visit The Drafting Room, our server Michael is the best.
are awesome and you can't beat the Monday night all-you-can-eat mussels for $12 it's a steal !
Our food was great and our server was excellent, since we had some gluten free and vegetarians in our group!!
The Drafting Room is a great place for brunch. My parents came into town for the weekend and since we love the food and ambiance, we decided to return. The food was delicious and the host was very accommodating to our needs. My husband had surgery on his ankle and needed to be close to the food and not on a 2nd level. We were seated right up close to the buffet. I also want to shout out to the omelet guy. He and my dad had a connection with their previous jobs and he was very personable.
Normally excellent specials and beer list
We've been there many times. Food is good, menu items creative, and staff strives to be friendly and efficient.
The staff were hospitable and gracious. The food was very good and the mixed drink I ordered was excellent
Came for Father's Day brunch and loved it! We were a large group with several kids and the service was excellent! Great brunch options and an excellent price!
A little busier than usual and the price was up.....Father's Day. Not surprised. Regardless, the omelets were wonderful, the bourbon glazed sticky buns are to die for and everything's else yummy as always.
We went to the Sunday Brunch and it was based on a Philadelphia theme and it was excellent! The service was top notch (even for a brunch) and the drinks were superb!
Highly recommend this restaurant! Good food extensive beer and wine lists, and staff is very friendly!
Drafting Room is one of our go to restaurants. Staff is great and food is always good at a fair price.
Have been here many times, always delicious food, great service, and huge beer selection!
There was an obnoxiously loud teen soccer team with negligent parents. Absolutely ruined the evening. Staff had no idea how to control the private party. Unacceptable.
We had booked the table on line a few days before which was easy. Due to delays on our.. part we were running late. I called to change the times and there absolutely no problem . When we arrived I was greeted by name which was a nice touch,
Service was friendly and efficient with plenty of interaction between us and staff who were genuinely looking to make our dinner event happy.
We all ordered something different and al l the meals arrived together no mean fete when there are 8 different meals with attendant side dishes and preferences My Rib eye was big and nice I didn't hear any complaints from the rest of the group. We all left full up and happy.
This is a lively eatery, so if your going for a romantic dinner you need to pick your seat wisely.
Would we go again? yes every day of the week. Sadly ,living in WV its a bit far t drop in for lunch
Greta food and beer, which is why we went. Friendly attentive service.
Mother's Day brunch was not good this year. Food not replaced quickly, fruit being handled by hand filling plate and omelets small. Guy making them used the towel he used for handle of pan to wipe off sweat off face.
Mother's Day Brunch party of 6. Annual tradition & the DR never disappoints. Great food & well organized.
Friendly and comfortable- good choice of menu items-service was good- We were happy with our choice. The hostess was very cheerful and gave us some good chuckles- much appreciated !
We went for an early mother's day celebration. Had the brunch buffet. Overall there was a good selection, but I wish there would have been some pancakes for the kids. They did have French toast sticks and chicken fingers. It is also a little on the pricy side, especially for kids who don't eat that much, but probably a better price compared to other places.
Have not been here in a while. Was happy to find that the food was still very good and the atmosphere was very comfortable. We got great service as well!
Dinner was very good. the portion size for the meals is fairly large. Everyone at the table enjoyed both the appetizer and the entrée. The server was new, but was very pleasant and did a good job. Overall, very nice dinner.
Outstanding Easter Buffet with warm attentive staff! What an unexpected and exceptional atmosphere and buffet. Carving stations with beef and ham were generous and delicious. Entrees were varied and salmon, chicken, jambalaya, shrimp, and even chicken fingers to delight the children. Wonderful salads, deviled eggs, cheese board and crackers. I know I missed something, oh the sweets table. The selections were plentiful, varied and exquisitely presented all for just $25.
Thank you for a wonderful family time.
Went to the Drafting Room with a date. Great buffet and drinks. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely go there again. Highly recommended!
We have been here many times and each time have enjoyed our meal. This time our server, Linda, was outstanding! If you are going - ask for a table in her section - she is very personable and attentive. Made our visit this time the best one yet!!
We always have a good experience at the drafting room. The food is always good, whether you have sandwiches, snacks or full entrees. They also have really nice beer and wine selections.
I have to say, I was a bit disappointed in this visit to the Drafting Room. Usually they are so on point, but it felt as if they are slipping there - which is a shame. We ate in the dining room and had to ask twice for a server. When we finally got one and ordered our drinks, it felt as if it went downhill from there. The bread that was brought to our table was as hard as a rock, but we were starving so we just ate it. Usually it is very fresh and delicious. Our meals were just okay - my chicken was definitely way over-cooked or it had be sitting under a heating lap too long. It wasn't a pleasant experience at all. Probably won't be back for a while - if at all.
Always wonderful mussels, great soft shell crab special with fiddlehead ferns and tender ramps (very seasonal), several vegetarian options for the veg in the family, Dad loves the beers, welcoming front of the house. Thank you!
Excellent bottomless mussels! Four varieties and each one was delicious. This Monday night special is truly special.
