You can't beat the ambiance for a romantic dinner. It was a nice place to go to for the first time to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary.
We were given the tour which was interesting, and then lead down many steps (ladies don't wear high heels) to the catacombs where our dinner took place.
Our waiter was very helpful and I'm impressed at the number of steps each server has to take to get our food down to us. Our waiter was personable and took some good photos of us which was wonderful of him to do.
The table has real candle light which was a nice touch.
My appetizer which was French Onion soup was so terrible I couldn't eat it. The cheese on top was very hard and the soup itself was barely warm. That was very disappointing as I love French Onion soup.
My wife's entre was Shrimp Alfredo. It was tastier than my food, but you could tell the Shrimp wasn't very fresh.
For my entre, I had which was chicken with some aujus potatoes and green beans. (Chicken Paulette). I rate it a 6.
We didn't have dessert as nothing really appealed to us.
Overall, for the price; I'd say I'd skip this place, or at least not order what we did. Perhaps other things are much better? Also, take note that in warmer weather they have a nice-looking patio area.

We went to Bube's to celebrate my birthday. We ate in the Bottling Works. The food was mediocre at best. My husband ordered mac and cheese with pulled pork. Too much grease. The mac and cheese was good alone. My daughter got a flat bread pizza, they drizzled it with olive oil, another item that was too greasy. I ordered a salad with buffalo chicken. The chicken patty reminded me of school cafeteria chicken patty. The salad was good, had to wait a long time for dressing. We also did a paranormal tour. Very little history, just stories about what he saw, there and other place, my husband was disappointed. It was a cheap tour.

What a mess - we stopped in for dinner for the first time in many years. We like the decor, but everything else was a mess. Our server knew nothing about the beers made on-site, and it is a brew pub! The crab dip was great but everything else was mediocre at best. Tomato soup was more of tomato flavored croutons with cheese, and the pizza was flat. Really sad as the venue is great - avoid!

The Catacombs, Bube’s Brewery’s upscale below ground restaurant, is a fantastic experience. Take the tour the staff will initially offer you before going down the stairs. It will give you a brief history of the place & acclimate you to “the depths.” I am claustrophobic, and the tour guide and tour helped abolish my fears. Dan, our server, was outstanding, takes time with you & always asks guests where they are from. He is an excellent relationship builder that enhanced our visit. Our appetizer was the baked Brie; very good, but I would recommend warming it a bit more & serving it with crackers, crostini, or French bread. My husband & sister loved their filet, but were not keen on the mashed purple potatoes. My husband felt it was one of the most tender filets he ever had. My salmon was good, but not my favorite; I was able to substitute asparagus for the brussel sprouts, so my dinner side was great. The Catacombs is an extremely unique experience. Many reviews have stated the food is “hit or miss.” I disagree, because even if the food was terrible, and ours was really good, the experience is worth going. We will go again. The “real” candles add to the atmosphere. We are planning to bring several neighbor couples for the murder mystery event & dinner.

Stayed in Mt Joy over Valentine's Day weekend and came to eat here Sunday evening in the catacombs. Overall, I have to say it was an extremely disappointing meal, but in a beautiful setting, and our server Dan really helped save what could've been a bad evening all the way around.

The Good: the setting in the catacombs is very beautiful and romantic, we sat in the room with the huge beer casks and it was lovely. The crab dip appetizer was very good, lots of real crab, very tasty. The desserts were excellent and well worth it. The wine list was fairly decent. Dan our server, is a great guy who knows the history of the place really well.

The Bad: my GF ordered the "Fillet Mignon" (medium-well, $32) and I ordered the NY Strip (medium, $28). Wow were they really bad. First off, what they served my girlfriend was NOT fillet (see picture), it was flat and oblong shaped rather than the classic round and 2-3 inches high. It was also very tough, and so overcooked that it was like a piece of shoe leather. We complained to our server Dan who, after apologizing profusely, promptly took it off our bill and comped us two desserts. My NY Strip was ok, cooked correctly to medium, but kind of tough and pretty flavorless.

Overall, we were very disappointed with the steaks we were served. This is a beautiful restaurant in a very unique setting, but I feel like the food is well overpriced for the quality that you get.

We went for a 44th birthday celebration and spent the night in the hotel. For $60 a person it was a rip off. We were told the dinner came with a pitcher of beer per couple, they refused to bring it out and blamed it on covid..what??? The salad came out without dressing and we had to wait 15 minutes for some. We had a couple who paid for dinner but were still upstairs and we had difficulty getting them their dinner to take upstairs. One dinner didn't come out and we were told there were 96 orders in front of that one, so everyone was eating except 1 person. Also order 2 drinks at a time. I couldn't follow the dialog at all, it wasn't entertaining.
Pros: the hotel was very cool and the atmosphere was relaxed. The catacombs was really neat and I would recommend a tour and go down the street to Gus's for cheap and delicious homemade food

Need a new Real Chef! I wanted to share my disappointment eating at Bubes Brewery Valentine's Day. While the Catacomb is very romantic, the food was an expensive massive let down.

The Crab cakes were barely a sliver of plain uncooked crab meat hiding sopping wet bland rice. Tossed bland extra large barely cooked bland green beans were tossed haphazardly on my plate. My old fashioned blackberry tasteless adult beverage was also a miserable failure. Don't even get me started on my boyfriend's bland surf and turf! We dd get decent little news of salad and French onion soup. If not for those sides I would have starved. For the first time in my life I could not eat my very expensive dinner. Thank god my boyfriend is an understanding compassionate person! He conquered hs plate with a poker face!

This was the second time we came to eat here while on a weekend getaway. We got there at 12:10 right after they opened. There were 2 other couples who came in behind us. Our waitress was a little slow bringing drinks. No biggie. But when our food did come, it was ice cold. My fries were so cold I thought maybe they forgot to fry them. Our hot sandwiches were freezing. It was really revolting trying to eat cold fried chicken parmesan and freezing sweet potato fries. Definitely not worth the $100 for lunch for 4. Really disappointing because in the summer, it was fantastic

Jayna our tour guide through the catacombs was awesome! She had great energy and quite knowledgeable about the history of the establishment. My husband and I stopped by as we were passing through the area. We were disappointed in the beer selection at the time because the brewed beers that we were interested in were unavailable at the time. We just had some of soft pretzel bites which were ok and your standard domestic beer. We enjoyed that while sitting outside which was very pleasant. All of the staff were very nice.

We had a group of about 30 outside in the biergarten. We were going to a wedding on Saturday at a local estate, and all met at Bube's on Friday night. It was great. Each family had separate checks, and Kate and another gentleman took great care of us. They also provided a tour of the historical brewery, which was cool. And the tour guide was very enthusiastic and fun. The food was very good, beer was good, and service was great. I asked other family members, and we all enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend for a group (or couples too).
