My wife would give it 2 stars, my kids would give it 3, and I would give it 4..... but I wouldn't give it 4 for the quality of the food, or the service.... That would be a 3 from me. But what I like is that they make some items that I have never seen locally before... such as... More

We drove over an hour to visit my son and take him out to lunch, enjoy the day. He suggested we try this place by the canal saying it looked very cute and they had an outdoor deck. It was such a beautiful day so we gave it a try. Never again.....We sat ourselves and waited for about 45 minutes... More

My Godson' 30th birthday.....we met him, his mom & her boyfriend for drinks & dinner there last Friday. Also a friend of my Godson's joined us - so it was a table for six.....on their outdoor deck. Business was slow when we arrived (now I know why). Service was SO unbelieveably slow, yet there were few patrons and the servers... More

I want to like this place. New owner/partners own other places of the same low quality type food and service. Went to meet friends, one beer (I think they brewed it while I waited). If you want slow this is the place to go!

Waited for a waitress or bartender who looked right at us for 20 mins to get a drink. As we were getting up to leave NIKI the second shift bartender came right through the door and seen we were displeased. She right then and there dropped her belongings and gave us much needed attention. From there on it was great.... More

After numerous very slow meals here I had decided to never go back but then I heard it was under new ownership so decided to give it a last chance. The location is great right by the canal and a group of us had paddled the Schuylkill and canal loop. We had a reservation and arrived right on time at... More

Food is okay, service is okay, beer is cold and the atmosphere is terrific! I actually like an olde school neighborhood bar, sometimes referred to as a dive. We actually took the canoe down the canal for lunch, but also it's a great bike destination, pedal and powered. Very nice outdoor deck along the canal. Nice quiet neighborhood. And for... More

No reason to feel good about this place at all. We went for lunch. Although it was mostly empty, the service was almost non-existent. The place is old and musty and needs a lot of renovation. Food was just OK - much better places in the Phoenixville area. It took over 10 mins to get my credit card receipt back... More

I wanted to give this restaurant a chance with its nice wooded setting and waterfront view, but was met with disappointment very early on. When we first walked in, we waited FOREVER to be seated when the restaurant was not crowded at all. Finally, some lady acknowledged us behind the bar and told us to grab our own seats and... More

All the food tastes as though it came from an industrial sized can or a low grade restraunt supply house. Dirty floors inside. Service so slow it makes you annoyed. Limit yourself to sitting on the deck overlooking the canal drinking a beer on a nice summer day.
