The goat cheese salad is a favorite. It's perfectly dressed and the texture of the toasted goat cheese patty is wonderful. But as other reviewers have mentioned, the tables need a good wiping. Everything feels sticky/greasy. If it had a good cleaning, I'd consider going back. But the prices for a salad are really steep considering the portion size. You've... More

I so wanted to just get a scrub brush and attack the entire restaurant with bleach. This place was just sticky, you could sense the layers upon layers of grease and splattered food. The food itself was bland and not at all memorable. Service was pretty good - this is about the only good thing I can think of to... More

My wife and I attended a group Christmas dinner right before the holiday. Most everyone's meal appeared to be satisfactory, but my Seafood Fettuccini was marginal at best with little lump crab meat and 4-5 small shrimp. The fettuccini was also way overcooked. One the plus side the draft beer was as advertised, the service good and the cost reasonable.... More

Food is good if you can get past the lack of care that the management is giving the facility. Dirty window sills with cobwebs with insects caught in them. Chipped paint along the front wall. The cigarette burns on the plastic menu was the last straw. I did send an email to the management prior to posting this review but... More

Open late everything else around was closed. Several, hundreds, of different beers available and a decent menu if you are hungry.

The Drafting Room used to be one of the better (and more expensive) dining options in Exton but it has undergone a re-vamp of the menu and has moved down-market in recent years. The food is still good quality but the choice is much more limited. It is still a decent option and the bar area is great (if a... More

The food is excellent for both lunch and dinner. Restaurant takes some standard fare and adds some unexpected twists which are quite good. Can accommodate any food requests. Great Beer selections. Has a fabulous cheese menu - do cheese and accoutrements with any beer, or wine and have a great afternoon. Décor has some challenges. Tables and chairs need replacing... More

Drafting Room is a "go to" restaurant in the Exton area. Creative foods and amazing selection of craft beers. It is a small locally owned restaurant owned by the same family as Brickside Grille. I never hesitate to go to Drafting Room and often take clients who are always impressed. My favorite meal is 'bottomless mussels" on Monday - all... More
