Restaurant details

Description: You can always find an extensive, ever-changing lineup of craft beers on tap and there’s always something fresh in the firkin. Pour one more! Starting with the original Pour House in Westmont, NJ we’ve now grown to locations in Exton, PA and North Wales, PA. We’re always shucking oysters at our raw bar, but if you want to get your oyster fix for cheap, stop in on Wednesdays for our Buck-a-Shuck special.

Love the beer selections! They rotate the tap specials and the specials are very resonable. Food selection is somewhat limited but everything I have tried has been very good!

“Best Beer Seclection in the Philadelphia Area”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

I have been a regular here for three years now. The beer selection is incredible. And by incredible, I mean it puts Philadelphia bars to shame (alas ... if only Russian River was sold in New Jersey!). From Troegs to Dogfish Head to Belgium Ales — they have it all. However, it gets better. Their dollar oyster night is the best deal in town. In the tri-state area, in fact. The selection of oysters is amazing. The waitstaff is knowledgeable; the service is fast and there is always live music to tap along to. The decor is vintage rock and roll; records (some signed) line every wall.

In the summer, there is outside seating. In the winter, settle in at the bar and order an Oyster Stout.

“Great Service! Pub with Imaginative Menu & Craft Beer Focus”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

Nice place, with craft beer being the main focus. The fact that they rotate their twenty beers on tap is a very big plus.
Also check their expansive bottled Craft Beer list; it's a little pricy, but good.
It's great to see a place really try when it comes to their food, with many imaginative items on the menu.
Some hits, some misses, but at least they're making an effort.
I started off with the Thai-Style Calamari. I liked it, fresh and not frozen! The sauce was just a bit too sweet (for my taste) and tends to make the fried calamari a little soggy if you don't eat it fast.
If I order it again, and I will, I ask for the sauce on the side. I had a bottle of Rogue - Captain Sig's Northwestern Ale. It was good though not as fresh as I've had when on tap. Though that's to be expected.

Next up were a dozen fresh oysters at $1 each. Very good and a great presentation with all the expected accompaniments. Another hit.
The only miss was the Pourhouse Deluxe Burger, at $14 it wasn't as good as it sounded on the menu. A mix of Pat LaFeida blend of brisket, short rib and chuck, American cheese, bacon marmalade -with truffled parmesan fries and a pickle.
I opted for applewood smoked bacon instead of the bacon marmalade. The bacon was very thin and didn't smell or taste of applewood smoke. The patty is very small and came out dry and well done instead of medium. Also the Brioche bun just doesn't make it. Not when you've had the identical and larger burger on a Portuguese roll at the Shipwreck Point, in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ with 1/4" thick real applewood smoked bacon for $2 less.
That being said, I will return and try some of the other items, it looks to be a very nice menu.
The service was very good and friendly.

“Nice - Friendly Atmosphere - Over 20 Rare Beers on Tap!”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

This Resturant Pub was rebuilt by PJ Welihans a few years ago. Great place for rare tap beers. Small, but nice bar seating. If you like raw clams/oysters on the half shell, this is the place. Menu is basic but good. It sits on Haddon Ave. in Westmont with a few nice outside tables and umbrellas for the nice weather. A back/side room is available for family/kids away from the bar area. Ther is also a nice room upstairs. Servers are friendly, providing good service. The establishment is clean.
