I was worried when I saw the diversity of the menu, but they seem to pull off everthing I've tried so far. usually a curry at a tavern I'd expect sub par, but not so. A little noisy, but good noise of people having fun.

We took our children and their spouses/boyfriend there for dinner on Christmas Eve, and the food and service was outstanding. Always a good choice for a meal if your in the Exton/Downingtown area.

We happened to go on a Monday night - all you can eat Muscles! And they allow you to change up the sauce with each order. Our server, Amy, was wonderful - even packing a little extra remoulade sauce with my leftover fish sandwich. Craft Beer selection is varied and well selected.

Drafting Room is one of my "go to" restaurants in the Exton area. It is locally owned and operated and provides a consistently superior meal with the best beer list around. Since it was Monday night I took advantage of the weekly Bottomless Mussels special. For about $10 you can have all the mussels you can eat and pick from... More

One of my favorites. Fantastic selection of brews from around the world. The food and service is excellent. The outside dining area is fun when the weather is right. Make this a must try when your in the Exton, PA area.

The menu is not extensive, but the beer selection is very good. The food was very good. I wish the martini's that are offered on the dessert menu were offered with the regular drink mix. They had several good choices. I even asked if they would do a sampler of martini's. They said next time I am there I could... More

Had a easy Friday evening dinner here. Our youngest daughter was home from NYC for our oldest bridal shower. What we like about the Drafting Room is consistency. The food is always good and everything on the menu is good. Always our go to place on short notice.
