Maxwells is a decent bar stop, and there was space at 9ish on a Saturday, so that was a plus. Beers are a bit pricey, but service is good at the bar.

We selected this restaurant from menu online. It was a case of their descriptions were great but the food only came halfway up to the hype created. I started with my signature drink of baileys, buttershots, and vanilla vodka and they made it perfectly! Kudos to the bartender! My husband was less impressed with the beer/wine selection. Our first course... More

We stopped by on a Saturday night after seeing a movie at the County Theater. It was packed down stairs so they lead us up stairs. At first we were disappointed in the seating but as we looked around we noticed a great bar area, TVs for those that want to watch a game and high top tables. We sat... More

I came here about 2 years ago and loved it. This time the service was lacking. No one asked if we wanted our drinks refilled until AFTER our meals were finished. The fried pickles I once enjoyed came on a tiny saucer this time, not enough for two people to munch. And their special dipping sauce transformed into thousand island... More

Okay local place. Very friendly staff. Menu was not very appealing for us foodies so we just had some good beers. Didn't have a good GF food selection either so I ordered a couple vegetable dishes which were tasty. Was pleasantly surprised to find that there was GF beer to be able to enjoy with our Dutch friends.

This place has a great collection of drafts (over priced) and an abundance of mediocre food (also over priced). Since it changed hands a couple years ago, it lost its neighborhood bar hangout personality as a place to relax and unwind. It has lost its welcoming persona. As such, there are a lot of other bars in Doylestown that are... More

We dined there recently for a birthday dinner. We tried to look at the menu on-line before we went, but the menu page was down. I have no problem paying a little extra for great food, and a good time, but this menu is way over priced. The bar is also a bit high. The food was good, but $21... More

A nicer looking bar right in the heart of Doylestown. Decent live music upstairs, nice enough downstairs you can sit down in a suit and have a drink, but still low-key enough you feel comfortable wearing jeans and a t-shirt. This is a Gen-X local watering hole...just good drinks and friendly bartenders.

I was not impressed by this place at all. My husband I stopped by after catching a movie at The County. The dining room was pretty and comfortable and the staff was attentive. But the food was pretty awful. We ordered 5 small plates to share with only one winner. The crab cakes were strongly fishy and covered in a... More

Need a place to try some great refreshments? Or what about a place to try some unique food? Even if you aren't "too" adventurous this is your place! The atmosphere is hip and creative. If you look around you will notice the unique fun taste of decorations that bring the dining experience together. So go and have a drink, enjoy... More
