Great beer choices and thats why we keep going back there. There are 3 different places to sit. From Casual at the bar to less casual in the mid section and in the main restaurant where there are white tablecloths . Food is average, service is good.

We have fond memories of Sunday brunch here from 10 years ago before we moved from the area. We were not disappointed! It's every bit as yummy as we remembered!

Well, I have been going to this place for a long time. No one else in the area is charging $7.50 for run of the mill beers. No wonder the bar was empty when I went there. It is difficult to say, but management, you need to get a new bartender - preferably one with a personality. Management lost their... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Exton. Food is consistently good, reasonable price and the wait staff efficient most of the time. We try to come here at least once a month. The pasta I had was great, lots of mussels, shrimp and calamari. Wife had Greek salad which she loves here.

Wide variety of choices, service was prompt. The "big fish sandwich" is huge. Drunken Pastrami Rueben was a hit as was the Jambalaya and Venison Chili.

We went to the Drafting Room this past Saturday for a Communion luncheon. Service was very good! They have a great beer selection (both on tap and in bottles). I had the chicken. I don't think it's on their every day menu, but it had a mushroom sauce and came with mashed potatoes and sautéed veggies. It was very good!... More

Went here for the Easter Buffet. For this to be a buffet the food was really really good. They had mushroom chicken, peel and eat shrimp, candied sweet potatoes, garlic mash fruit and dessert just to name a few. There were a few things that were disappointing though. It started very late, about 4:20ish, was supposed to start at 4.... More

My family has always enjoyed their Sunday buffet....made to order omelets, a variety of salads, sides, etc...plus you can order eggs benedict and a plate of gooey sticky buns as well. Since I am severely sensitive to gluten, I usually avoid buffets, but they also offer a separate gluten free menu. I ordered the beef brisket and it was tender,... More
