Parking isn't greatest. Nice decor. Friendly staff. Little slow service but still not bad. Beer was excellent. Food would have been perfect if little lighter on sauce but other than that delicious wrap. Beer battered fries were excellent. Definitely would visit again with guest.

This was my first time eating at this restaurant and it was recommended by my husband. Joining us at dinner were our two 12 year-old boys. We shared the sampler appetizer. Each of us had a different favorite item. I loved the bavarian pretzel, my kids the pierogies and my husand the wings. We ordered different entrees and loved them... More

Stopped in Saturday night for an early dinner and some beer. It just so happened to be during the Musik Fest so the restaurant was super crowded. We had a reservation for 9 people and arrived 10 minutes early to check in..still had to wait over 30 min. for our table. Our server was quick ant attentive and our drink... More

We usually come here for their pumpkin beer which is excellent. The best pumpkin beer I have tasted.. Unfortunately they didn't have it yet. Late August is when they serve it.. So my wife had the Sangria and I had the blueberry beer. The blueberry beer was very good. Sangria was ok.. We decided to eat here at the last... More

It's OK. If you want a beer and a burger, it's not a bad place to go...I have nothing bad to really say about it, it's just if I were recommending people go to a certain place I'd always have a better place to recommend. I mean wings? I've got THE place to go..but Brew works is "OK". Beer? Burgers?... More

The food is average bar food but the beers are excellent. The stout rivals Guinness. Very good IPA. They make a surprising pumpkin beer in season. I do not like flavored beers but this was good. Not overpowering just a delightful after taste.

I was on a trip to PA and stopped at several breweries, this was one of my all around favorites. The place is really neat, there are several brewering vats, pictures to honor steel workers, and lots of steel throughout, but it's done very well and is comfortable and inviting. The beers were all well balanced, I did a sampler... More

In town for a short spell and I was told this was the place to go....must be for families. The food is dry and bland, worse Philly I've ever had, calamari was just bad and pulled pork nasty. On a good note, love the pretzel sticks and beer cheese sauce. Great service and atmosphere.
