I use to live in the Exton, PA area and The Drafting Room was one of my favorite places to go. It is unpretentious -- not much in the way of "decor", but inviting nonetheless. It has a nice bar area with a couple of large flatscreen TVs, so I suppose it sort of qualifies as a sports bar, and... More

This easy to miss restaurant on 100 north is by far the best in the area. We have dined here since it's opening and menu selections, food, and service are second to none. My perennial lunch favorite is the open face crab melt with fries to die for!

I ate at The Drafting Room last night with some friends. I see reviews stating that this is a favorite Exton, PA restaurant. I don't seer it since this was a Saturday night 7:00 seating. Hardly anyone there, 3 or 4 tables seated, the rest empty. When we finished we were the only ones in the dining room. Don't get... More

I was looking for a place for dinner in unfamiliar territory and decided to Drafting Room. On my first visit, I was cordially welcomed and the very helpful waitstaff helped me choose a craft beer, provided water and warm rolls while placing my dinner order. One the entrees of the day, the glazed chicken with roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli and... More

We met at this restaurant because it was at a halfway point for folks coming from two different directions and we were glad that we did, We had a party of 8 and were seated at a round table which was great to include everyone in conversation, We were waited on right away and our waitress was very patient with...

The Drafting Room is a long-time favorite in the Exton area. New menu with an expanded selection of 'starters' as well as main dishes complements the interesting selection of craft beers. Service is good - décor is getting somewhat tired. That said - a fun evening and welcome relief from being at home.

What was once a great restaurant has now become average at best. Descriptions of special and menu entrees sound delicious but lack any distinction. One example, chicken "medallions" the size of your palm were just large pieces of over cooked chicken too dry and hard to eat. Sauce mediocre and soup pedestrian. Sorry to see the decline.

Five visited for Lunch - all left extremely full - however, all agreed very tasty & good value. Try the Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup, daily specials, Mushroom Blue Burger, Big Fish, all we're great. Service was also very good - proper mix of being attentive without being intrusive.

With a name like the drafting room, I was expecting a bit more excitement. They do have a good selection of rotating beers - check. The food is always very good and reasonably priced - check. But the scene is very dry. I'm guessing it's a place for locals, everyone in there was probably in their 50's or higher. Nothing... More

Went here without a reservation on a Sunday, which isn't a good idea. Luckily, we were able to slip into the bar area for a table. The Brunch food was amazing with a wide selection. The pecan french toast was my personal favorite. The bloody mary's were cheap and very delicious. The staff were right on top of everything and... More
