We stopped here for lunch during the week. It was pretty dead inside, but the food was good. The servers were ok. They were happy for the business, however they could have cleaned up the areas and bathrooms better. There was visible dust, cob webs, etc. throughout the building.

Had dinner here with work colleagues. We tried a mix of the draft beers on tap all went down well. The food was also very good, big hits were the mushroom soup and the nachos. Waitress and staff were great too.

The ranch chicken blt it incredible. We have stopped here any times just for this meal. Raspberry iced tea was also a refreshing treat. The service was impeccable. We will be back.

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
