Description: Located just outside Valley Forge National Historical Park, Black Powder Tavern combines local flavors (edible AND sip-able) with American history in a pub-like setting. Warm woods and just-dim-enough lighting add to the tavern feel, enhanced by a reclaimed sawn oak bar with 12-cushioned stools (plus 6 high-tops), materials that are echoed in the dining room and in the flooring. Weeknights feature happy hour from 5-7PM, with a reprise happy hour on Thurs., Fri., and Sat. from 9-10PM. On Sundays, a prix fixe brunch is offered from 10:30AM-2PM, and the big game is always on.The menu features a variety of small and entree-sized plates, and highlights the flavors, ingredients and culinary trends Philadelphia has become known for—and that pair well with our extensive craft beer offerings. If you’re looking for a new favorite burger, you’ve come to the right place; our veal and chicken versions are hearty and flavorful, as is our pork sandwich. You’ll also find several salads and sharable items such as deviled eggs with smoked trout, pork and chicken wings, polenta fries, calamari and more; plus a fresh fish of the day (and of course fish ’n’ chips, cedar plank salmon and chicken marsala. Whether you stop in for lunch, dinner, happy hour or Sunday brunch, there’s something to satisfy your hunger, and your taste buds.Beer enthusiasts should take note: there are 24 brews on tap and 39 bottles. The selection is tweaked regularly, so if you’re looking for something new and special (or old and admired), this is the place to come. There’s plenty to satiate non-drinkers as well, including milkshakes made with Franklin Fountain ice cream—for an added historical touch, of course. For more details visit Black Powder Tavern online and tune in via Facebook and Twitter to stay up on beer and menu promotions.

Food and service are good, but it's not for a group larger than 2-3 because it's always noisy.

Stopped in for lunch with a client and was impressed. The burgers are really good and the service is as well.

Not a huge menu but plenty of solid options.

The place does fill up so you may want to make a reservation.

ALL OF OUR FAVORITES ARE GONE FROM MENU... What happened to meatloaf and no steak fries with the steak frites. Favorite pasta selection has disappeared. Cajon mac and cheese lacked any sausage per menu only one chunk of chicken and one speck of bacon. New crab cakes are Mrs Pauls. Our favorite restaurant is now below par. Maybe stick with a sandwich. Very disappointed.

This place was a little tricky getting to with the placement of the restaurant on a busy corner. However, the food was great and you got plenty of it. I had a wonderful grilled chicken, cranberry, and walnut salad. It was just wonderful! Service was awesome and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Stopped for lunch on a Saturday, so it wasn't as busy as what the crowd may be in the evening.

Situated off Route 202 and 252 away from the bustle of King of Prussia. The menu is American Cuisine with sufficient variety to please most people. Nicely decorated inside. Pleasant atmosphere. It's a great place to meet folks due to its convenient location. Definitely worth a visit.
