Very surprised they didn’t have any Mother’s Day specials. Food was overall okay as was the service.
Brisket Tacos are delicious and the blueberry lemonade drink is awesome!
Had reservation for inside but sat outside since it was nice evening and they had a singer on the patio. There was about a 15 minute wait for a table for 4 - not bad at 7:30 on the weekend. Took a while for the waiter to get our order but she took our food order immediately. The food was better than expected. I had brisket tacos and the meat was tender and full of flavor - and the tortillas were double layered so not soggy, the avocado was also a great addition. We also had brisket fries as an app. The fries were thick and cooked perfectly and held up under the toppings - I had to hold back so I didn't fill up on those. Will definitely be back.
We had a great evening for cocktails and appetizers. It was nice to sit outside on the patio.
Great food and great ambiance. Love the dog friendly outdoor seating and the many vegan options!
Fun! Trivia night was good too. Beers are always cold.
Their spinich crab dip was out of this world! We both devoured our meals as they were delicious!
Service was great and the antique decor was beautiful. We actually looked up the history of the old hotel which was pretty neat.
Definitely will be returning.
Food was good. We sat in the bar area. The seating in the booths was cramped for average size adults
It was a big disappointment. Dirty glasses, got the order wrong, waiter never checked on us to see if we needed anything and when asked to speak to manager, she didn’t offer to do anything and acknowledged that there were previous issues with our waiter
Delicious food, always grateful for the vegan options! The impossible quesadilla with cashew crema was outstanding. Service was pretty slow but there was only one server outside and she had a lot of tables. Totally understandable and we were in no rush.
Fun trivia night. But, wish the specials were better.
Nice atmosphere. Safe. Clean environment. Stick with the pub food. The salmon was overcooked and dry. My wife lived the reuben.
We love coming here! We always have good food and have a good time. The spinach artichoke and crab dip is usually my favorite but this time it tasted different and was very very full of artichokes. And the outside was still a bit cold in the tent, as they don’t have the propane for the heaters anymore. But everything else was great!
Our server was amazing! Food was so delicious and we had a great time celebrating our anniversary!
Good place for basic bar food, burgers and wings etc. big selection of drafts. Not 4-star dining and doesn’t pretend to be. Great spot for a casual meal and a beer or cocktail
Cool spot but food was very boring - not much flavor to speak of. Service was pretty bad as well, didn’t get plates for appetizers or utensils for the the entree. Also had to ask for napkins because those are apparently an afterthought. Waitress did give us a free beer and apologized for the terrible service, for what it’s worth. Phoenixville has like 25 better options.
Food was great, the restaurant was really busy so service was a little slow. I’ve been here many times before and this is normally not the case. Still had a great time.
The food was great but it was very pricey. $14 for a burger which didn’t include fries is too expensive for my taste.
More food options and specials would be nice. The only burger option was build your own burger.
I like to refer to this as our Valentines disaster. We had a reservation. The hostess was no where to be found and when she showed up she was somewhat unfriendly and didn’t know what she was doing. When she sat us our table was disgusting. It took 20 minutes to get a server to our table. The “busboy” bringing out food was clueless and rude to people. Everyone in our side of the building were complaining about horrible or non existent service. Our appetizer was served on a wooden cutting board and the dipping sauces were missing and we didn’t get small plates to use. The entrees were pretty tasty but way overpriced as were the drinks. This place has been having the same complaints for over a year now... THATS A MANAGEMENT FAIL NOT THE STAFF. You had almost no staff on during a busy holiday and the ones that were there were untrained or inexperienced.
We will not be returning and we will make sure none of our friends do either. Great American Grill?? Great American Fail
Although my boyfriend and I were there 15 minutes early for our 11am reservation (right when they begin serving lunch) we were seated and offered drinks right away! Our waitress was not bothered AT ALL by our early arrival. Our plates arrived in a timely fashion, and I was BLOWN away at the deliciousness of the Impossible Quesadilla- I thought to myself “this is WAY too good to be vegan!” And my picky boyfriend was satisfied with Mac and cheese and fries. I also enjoyed the truffle Asiago tater tots and red beer ketchup from the Valentine’s menu. Will DEFINITELY be back.
Great food beer and entertainment
Went for Happy Hour. Brielle was our server and remembered us. We got drinks and each had food and spent just under $35. You CANNOT beat that price especially in Phoenixville.
Was pleasantly surprised that there was entertainment! Very nice experience!
We enjoy going to The Great American Pub, esp. in the warmer weather where we can eat and listen to the great bands! Hopefully the bands will all be able to play again.
Our server Danny was so nice and accommodating, ty Danny! Food was delicious as always!
We sat in the tent, on a Friday night and there were only two other tables there that were spread out. The host was the sweetest on the phone and in person. The server was great and the food was better. We had the fajitas and the gnocchi, lobster and it was so good!
The food and service were outstanding!
We had a nice time food was good drinks for solid.
Made reservations for a table and received a booth that wasn't sturdy, the back of the booth would more significantly and made for a very uncomfortable situation. The service was rather itself was rather slow, took more than 15 minutes to even be greeted and then another 10 or more to receive our first drinks. The food was delicious but overshadowed by the slow service and poor seating accommodations. Even asked our server/bartender about the booth and she mentioned its been like that for sometime, seems to me they are neglecting upkeep.
Great service, comfortable atmosphere, good food. What more could you ask for?
Great food and service. First time eating at the Phoenixville borough - great find, will come back
We enjoy dining at the Great American Pub. Food is great and people there are very nice, our server Michele was especially kind! We love going in the warmer weather to eat outside and enjoy listening to the great bands!
A little cold in the tent, but to be expected based on weather. Otherwise, nice atmosphere, beautiful restaurant, and delicious food.
Outside tent was freezing should have been closed. Rain coming in sides a d tower heaters threw no heat
My toes were numb by end of meal
Apparently we were told the owners came in and dined inside at 2 full tables in back dining room and 3 patrons at side of bar table which is why the server did not return to us. I went to get the check to get some warmth. I asked why these people were there were told oh they are the owners and then people at bar worked there. Do not belive the latter part. Poor experience.
Great meal great service and great outdoor dining experience
Great menu variety and ale for the price. There is a large amount of outdoor seating and there are heat lamps staggered through out the area.
The Pub did a great job creating a Covid safe place to dine!
Husband and I got in a final dinner for us at GAP. We went to see our favorite Bartender, Michele. We were seated at the back bar and Jenny was great as our server. We split the brisket fries and they were great, meat was tender and flavorful. Tried the new brick oven pizza. Had the garlic and spinach and it was very good. Lime refresher from the bar was tasty. We got to see Michele and wished her a wonderful and prosperous holiday! We wish the same for John and all the GAP staff. Thanks for a yummy night before more restrictions.
The waitress was courteous and very professional.
The food was very good and the price was reasonable. We will be back
Loved everything about the outdoor setup, plus all the heaters and fireplace. Service was great as well.
