We enjoyed a nice lunch at Manayunk Brewing after a long bike ride along the river. If the weather cooperates, consider dining on the patio which offers a comfortable, relaxing setting. Our group of four shared a tasty hot crab dip appetizer. We didn't find the rest of the food very impressive. My turkey burger was rather tasteless. The crab soup was just ok. The beer, however, was a bit more memorable, which you'd expect from a brewery. Service was friendly and quick. I have to give it a 4/5 based solely on the atmosphere and location.

Great area to relax and have a meal and a beer. Right in the heart of Manayunk, food is always good and the atmosphere is fun.

Food was mediocre but it's called the brewery so try the beer. A sampler is usually best since I have never heard of most of these. Deck is very nice but seems to be a place for locals and early twenty-somethings.
For best experience, try to go when less crowded, otherwise fighting the crowd will ruin your time.

I'm trying really hard to find a single good thing to write about this place.
We came on a hot Saturday and asked for a table inside. They told us that there was no table inside but that they can seat us outside and move us inside when the table is ready - which was great. The staff came to us 3 times to updated us that the table inside is "being set up" and then the 4th time they told us it will take 15-20 minutes for it to be ready. This made us doubt that they even begun setting up a table for us in the first place which I believe was eventually the case. We ended up sitting outside which was clearly not our preference but the worst part is that during this entire this time the table was being "set up" they did not take our order because they were waiting for the table inside to be ready...
putting this aside, we moved on. But it didn't get any better: They forgot to take an order from 2 people so we had to call them back. When the drinks came out, many of the drinks we order were missing. They did not provide us with any beer samples that we asked for, which could have been a nice courtesy of them after all we've been through (for God's sake - this is a brewery!!) but instead encouraged us to order the beer samples from the menu which is to me an unprofessional and greedy approach or maybe the best approach if you don't want your customer to ever return again.
The food took A LOT of time to be ready even after the order was finally put in. Even the kids meals came late.
On top of all this the food is expensive and isn't worth the money. The "Caprese Salad" which is under the salad category is actually 4 pieces of tomato (that's right, four), with 4 matching pieces of mozzarella on top. It's not even a starter. And it's 11 dollars!!! What a shame. There are places you can get a decent meal for that price.

When we mentioned all this (and more) to the server, they didn't even bother to properly apologize and didn't even show the slightest effort to make us happy as if they were trying really hard to make us never return to this place (which actually is a success for them. we won't.)

Even the home made beer is not that great so i don't see anything that will make it worth ever coming back to this place. You can easily have a much better experience at your local Applebees drinking a Sam Adams or some other beer on tap.
