Magic - Excellent Dinner, Food & Music too!

Date night dinner, late on a Friday night. Crowd was surprisingly sparse for a Fri night ~9. Particularly surprising given the food and service were fantastic. Honestly, one of the best meals I've had. This is a legitimate foodie, farm to table place. I had one of the evenings specials - "Pan... read more

I came here with a partner company after work on a Monday night. We had a party of 13-15 and arrived around 6pm. It's a pretty small place, definitely with the typical feel/atmosphere of a gastropub, but they were able to set a few tables next to each other to accommodate our large group. Our servers were friendly and took... More

My husband and I love trying new places. I am rather picky as I like finer dining, but occasionally will settle while on road trips. We were on our way home after a long drive, and we were unfamiliar with the area so I utilized an app on my iPhone to help us find somewhere close by to eat. I... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time last weekend and couldn't believe how crowded the parking lot was when we arrived for our 7 PM reservation. We had to create our own parking spot since there was NO empty space in the entire lot. When we entered the restaurant, we were really surprised with how many people were in... More

We've eaten here numerous times over the years, and I always leave with a smile on my face. And not just because of the beer (which is ample, and nicely presented). The service is always attentive and helpful. And the food is always interesting, tasty and fairly priced. The atmosphere is convivial and warm. Our recent meal included oxtail poutine... More

We have had some great meals at this fun gastropub outside of Emmaus. The daily specials have been inventive and delicious each time we have tried them. The beer selection is equally impressive as well. The service at the bar has been warm and friendly every time. If you come by on the weekends after 8pm, they often have live... More

The scallops are amazing! The Eggs Benedict served on the weekends during brunch is the best that we have ever tasted.

We have a mixed review today of the Trapp Door Gastropub, so bear with me while I scribe... The menu is diverse and eclectic, from sweetbreads to wild boar. The beer list is very, very extensive, but we're not beer drinkers, so I'll skip that. I ordered the pierogies and the skirt steak bolognese flatbread, which were both tasty (and... More

With a very unassuming exterior and modest interior, the Trapp Door is an amazing place with fantastic food and a great selection of craft beers. The menu has very good variety. The Braised short rib pierogies are a great starter. The meat & cheese choices are delicious and can pair very well with the beers. The staff are very friendly... More
