    The place was empty. We actually thought they were closed. They did not have their liquor license. When we were given the menus we were told there were no steak or ribs.

    I was surprised at this wonderful restaurant in this location. It has a lovely location on a small waterway that leads to the Delaware River. I was there for an early lunch and we ate on the patio overlooking the water. It was practically empty but I can see how it would be packed on a weekend. Great menu, with lots of vegetarian options.

    They should indicate somewhere thats its BYOB. Never was before. They are apparently "in transition" with their liquor license. Would have been nice to know. Had out of town guests. Left to go somewhere else. Would have been a good afternoon on the deck.

    I have been here a few times and it’s been great I raved about it to my friend. But this time we get there and find out it’s byob all the sudden but decide to stay cause the food is usually good. We barely seen our waitress. They’d brought the food she asked for mild wings they were too hot. Two of us ordered pizza two different pizzas we asked they said oh that’s the same pizza then why is it two different ones on the menu? Not sure if we will be back if we do it will be for drinks if they ever open the bar back up.

    Gem of a place. We sat outside on their expansive deck on the neshaminy creek. They are currently waiting on their liquor license so it's byob (which works great for us). Food delivered hot, however the stuffed chicken was not good.

    During Friday night dinner with Family at 6pm the restaurant had music playing. The music was not a good choice for this time of evening while family and children are eating. The music was more for bar setting. The music was very loud. Music would stop, start several times. Sometimes the music was distorted that it almost gave you instant headache. I would understand playing this type of music at that noise level after 9pm when families and children are not there.

    Was looking to enjoy a nice meal and a beer at a Gastropub on an outside deck on a warm Spring day. Checked most of the boxes… Unfortunately caught the restaurant in the process of re-upping its liquor license and it was BYOB. Did not know till seated. Oh well, enjoyed some water by the water. Food was very good. Our waitress was much less available than the others working that evening. Looking to return and try again.

    New owners have made significant improvements in food. The service was great, super friendly and helpful. They expect to have a liquor license back again in April. The location is wonderful. We had tilapia, a curried chicken dish and burgers. Everyone raved about theirs.

    Great atmosphere with the issues most new restaurants have. They are operating as a BYOB currently but wait staff hasn't been trained on proper opening of wine for guests. Appetizers (fried ribs and pulled pork Mac and cheese) were amazing. 3 out of 4 entrees were underwhelming. Rib eye was over seasoned but cooked perfectly. Cedar plank salmon had no flavor. Five star burger lacked seasoning. The loaded hot dog was very well prepared. Overall we will be back again to try other dishes.

    They were in the middle of changing their liquor license so only water, juice, or soda for drinks. Not the end of the world. We just felt like due to boredom they were overly checking on us (waitress, wait staff, etc). Attentive is great but not checking the table every 5 min.

    We went on a Thursday at 4 pm so it was quite, but can see how it can get more lively. Beautiful building, nicely furnished, spacious. Looking forward to coming back for more fun events. Menu was not extensive, but what was there is good. Standard bar fare plus some different offerings as well. We all enjoyed our meals and drinks. Will go back for sure.
