We found Sly Fox on the outskirts of Pottstown in an industrial park - didn't seem like a location that would draw in a crowd, but they were busy. The bartender told us to try the pizza because it was "delicious" - we did, and wow it is GOOD. We ended up taking another one home. They also have a nice selection of craft beer brewed on premises. We especially like "O'Reilly's Stout". Bar crowd was very friendly and what we thought was going to be a ho-hum meal turned into a fun time. We will be visiting Sly Fox again.

I love craft beers and Sly Fox was craft before there was a name for it. Their logos and beer names seem tame compared to the new craft beers but don't be fooled. These guys know how to make beer. The food is exceptional for a beer place.

Great find in Pottstown! The tasting room has counter service only but service is always excellent. Perfect place to sample beer and food is always fantastic. I recommend the veggie pizza and Greek salad. Best value in the area!

Good beer, good lite fare. The pizza and sliders were a big hit with the kids. The beer is very good, you kind of order blindly if you really don't know your beers. Not much help in selecting a beer to your liking. The chalk board with information is somewhat difficult to see, its kind of dark. The server never really gives you his undivided attention. That has happened twice. A lot of echo in the room. But I still would go back. It's situated in an industrial park for the locals it is easy to find.

Went here for dinner around 4:30 on a Saturday. Since this is a "Tasting Room" adjacent to their brewery, it is located in an industrial area off the beaten path. This is not a restaurant like the one in Phoenixville or the one that used to be in Royersford. It consists of a section of a warehouse that has been divided off the brewery. There is a sizable bar and wooden picnic tables. No waitress service; you order your food at the bar and they bring it to your table when it's done. The food was great, pizzas are phenomenal. However the menu is very limited. There are items that would suit kids but this is clearly not a family spot.

I will not comment about the beers since this is much more of a subjective matter than the food. They do have quite a number on tap and offer a sampler, so if you like craft beers you will probably find some you like and some you don't.

Overall a good experience if you aren't expecting a standard table-service restaurant. Definitely needs to be bigger though. If you get there right after a tour has concluded, the place will be full, with people waiting for tables.
