“ICE COLD”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Beautiful place, great bar, but everyones dinner was cold. I had heard great things about this restaurant and was so looking forward to this visit. Sit down for about 100 people. The Peach Cobbler dessert was screaming hot... go fiqure...

“Great food, Lots of FUN”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Love the Brewery! It's our go to when we have out of town guests. Have great food. The stone over pizzas are delicious. Brewski Burger is awesome, along with the Skillet Baked Chocolate chip cookie! Love all the beers they brew, especially the SCHUYLKILL PUNCH Raspberry Ale

The location is great on the river. They have a lot of outdoor patio seating too. The weekend nightlife there is fun too with a live band. Cover is $5 after 10pm. There's a couple bars indoors and also outdoors. There's another bar upstairs with some seating. The second floor banquet room turns into a DJ/dance floor.

“Great space for an event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

I chose Manayunk Brewery for the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding at the end of August, 2013. I live in Chicago, and had to make all the plans for this event from a distance, working with their events coordinator over the phone and via email. It was a bit of a leap of faith, but it turned out to be a wonderful choice!

The virtual tours on their website made it easy to visualize the space, and I got lots of help and advice from them on planning the menu. We chose the upper deck, an outdoor space overlooking the river. It was beautiful, really helped make the event memorable. Guests mingled easily, and a good time was had by all. The food was all quite good, there was plenty of it, and service was seamless. Best of all, it was quite affordable, and there were no surprises when it came time to pay the bill.

If you need to plan an event in the Philly area, I highly recommend trying Manayunk Brewery. I can't tell you how many compliments I got from our guests on what a great party it was. And all I did was make the right choice of venue.

“Great selection of microbrews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Stopped in for a bite to eat after a hard day of mountain biking. The brew was cold and tasty. We sat in the bar facing the deck and relaxed in air conditioned splendor. The classic burger was delicious. The waitress described the chowder as being having light cream. It was as thick as drywall spackle.

“Tasty beers, great seafood, excellent wait staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Had an early dinner outside on the deck. Beers were cold (try the Yunkelweisen, a darker wheat beer -- Delicious!), and the food was delightful. My companion had the Spider Roll from the sushi bar, and I had the spicy scallops. The scallops were moist and tender with a great sear, and were served on a bed of corn salsa. The wait staff was prompt, professional and courteous. A great find, don't miss it.
