    Service was super friendly, but we did feel a little rushed, for seemingly no reason. It was a rainy gloomy day, and there were only a handful of full tables. Food and drinks were delicious though!

    The food was good happy to see vegan options available ! Although the service wasn’t great we sat at the bar because we were early to our reservations. Bartender took forever to take our food order better yet we had to ask her to take our food order. The end of the night our check was totally wrong and additional items were added twice had to ask for the items to be takin off. I guess adding the gratuity they don’t care for great service anymore.

    This was my first time at Craftsman row and I loved it. The donut chicken sandwich was very flavorful and filling . I also tried a milkshake for the first time ever . The waitress was very helpful with my decision making. So I ordered the birthday cake milkshake and it was absolutely delicious. I will be returning soon

    We came for the Harry Potter milkshake for our son’s birthday! The specialty milkshakes didn’t disappoint. Very creative. As far as a restaurant/bar…it’s ok. Not terrible food/service but there’s room for improvement. Also, the pricing for the food quantity and quality doesn’t match up. We’d go again but just for the milkshakes!

    Almost immediately our server Chase made it clear he’d rather be anywhere else than serving us, when he answered my “hi how are you?” with “tired. It’s been a long day.” It then took us three times asking for our drinks, while looking at the bartender standing right in front of us texting on his phone, for us to get our drinks. They were out of basic things like yellow mustard (but had Dijon which is random and more expensive), no avocados, no salt and pepper on the tables, my beyond burger came with nothing. I had to add LTO a la carte. They had few vegan options but then nothing vegan to go with it. Why make cauliflower wings and serve it with blue cheese or ranch? If I’m order cauliflower wings vs meat wings, chances are I have dietary restrictions. Accommodate your customers. All throughout Chase continue to seem extremely annoyed he was even there. At the end we looked at our bill and Chase had added 20% gratuity…for a party of 2. I’ve never been anywhere where gratuity is automatically added, at 20%, for a party of 2. So when we questioned it he immediately got defensive, told us that it’s automatic at each table (which is an egregious policy and the owner is clearly taking advantage of what few customers they have) and then got flip when we said that they didn’t even have a full kitchen. He rudely, responded “what else besides yellow mustard did we not have?!” Try all the other things I asked for Chase! And as we continued to try to discuss it he walked off. There was also a man painting over the wall paintings which hung closely to the tables, some which were occupied, which isn’t something that should be done while paying customers are dining. The place is in a decor identity crisis and the staff was rude and uninterested in their jobs (except one young lady who seemed to be working hard). At least the food was decent.

    Craftsman Row Saloon is a fun place to enjoy a casual meal of pub food. We made a reservation for dinner here because we were attending the Harry Potter exhibit in town. Someone had recommended we dine here because they were featuring a special, limited edition Harry Potter milkshake while the exhibition was running. Being huge HP fans, my husband, daughter and I thought it would be a great idea to dine here. The service was very good - our server was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was nice - very casual pub type atmosphere (which is not what we were expecting from some of the other reviews). The food was mediocre - half of our food came out at the wrong time (dishes we wanted served with our main course came out as appetizers) and half the food arrived cold. The food itself was overpriced for the quality. They also informed us that the limited edition Harry Potter shake was no longer available, which was very disappointing. In hindsight, we should have called ahead and confirmed. The atmosphere was good, but just a bit loud, so we had a hard time hearing each other talk from across the table. To sum it up, this is a great place to go for drinks with friends and/or to enjoy the specialty designer milkshakes for dessert.

    This place could use some sprucing up it was very empty and dark but the regulars are there very loud service was subpar food came fairly quickly except the wings took forever my daughter pretty much ate by herself since she waited so long the drinks was poured heavy mom needed an extra coke to turn down the dial on her Long Island the milkshakes were so good small for the price but the presentation was worth the price which also took really long to get also they added gratuity and it was marked up 20 percent didn’t like that at all

    We chose to visit after the lunch rush on a Sunday so we could have a relaxing experience. The restaurant was only 1/3 full. We were greeted at the door & I told the person we had a reservation. She never even checked, which was off putting, since I filled out info on our reservation about this visit being special as we were celebrating my daughter’s birthday. So no one ever acknowledged her birthday. Our server had an aloof/lousy attitude during the entire lunch. I ordered an appetizer & then said I was having other apps as my meal. The server then walked away from our table as my husband tried to order, never asking what the others at our table wanted. We ordered the rest of the food when he brought my husband’s beer. We got our appetizer after receiving parts of my meal. My husband received the wrong food so he had wait for the correct order to be made. One of the milkshakes tasted sour. We felt so incredibly uncomfortable because of our server’s attitude that we just wanted to leave. Received the check & saw that 20% gratuity was automatically added, even though we were only a party of 4. Quite frankly, I don’t think he earned any tip at all, but as a former server, I always tip no matter what. I just felt so badly for my daughter & her friend because they had been so excited to come here for the milkshakes. They were the ones who first voiced their concern about the waiter’s poor attitude. The only saving grace was most of the food was fantastic. Unfortunately, we will never return as long as that server works there as he completely ruined our experience.

    We went here to celebrate our two children's birthdays. They are students at university in Philly. We had a terrific dinner, the kids loved the milkshakes. Everyone agreed the burgers and fries were delicious. Chicken sandwich very moist. The best part of the experience was how friendly and nice they were. We accidentally left a credit card behind and they put it aside for us and then cut it up after we contacted them. A very honest establishment that we would highly recommend.
