Food from Merci kitchen is always outstanding!!! Fresh and interesting menu that is always changing. It's great to be able to try 'new' stuff.
Great dinner and fabulous beer and cocktails. Service was excellent. Fun ladies night out.
We went to Crowded Castle for a friend's birthday and opted to order the Chefs choice butcher board - it was amazing!! One of our friends was pregnant and the chef tailored the board to her needs and considered our recommendations on things we might want to try from the regular menu. Awesome experience and great staff! Thank you!!
Another delicious brunch. New Lager beer on tab was great!
We had brunch a few weeks ago and loved the food. Came back for dinner and it was delicious. Good prices, good portions and the beer was really tasty. I’m glad we came back. We’ll come back again!
Very good! Thank you for taking care of us!
Loved our experience at the Crowded Castle. So grateful for their willingness to host the Resilence Art Event! What a special way to hope promote these 2 special artists and we loved the special brunch foods! A great place to eat and spend time with family.
Wonderful service, food and drink. My only criticism is that the entrees are somewhat small.
Awesome beer-mosas. Family friendly. Look forward to returning.
We went to Crowded Castle with our grown children for Mother’s Day Brunch. We really loved the atmosphere, and the service was great. The food was very good and we enjoyed it, but we were still hungry. We frequently dine out, and the amount of food we received was disproportionate to the prices charged. If prices were a few dollars less, or if the portions were larger, the value would have been fair. We hope to go again soon, and give this place another try.
Went for dinner on Cinco de Mayo. Very friendly and attentive staff. Tacos ok but had a nice IPA. Would definitely return.
I was pleasantly surprised to see such a varied menu for brunch. I came with a group of 6 who have very different tastes and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Bottomless mimosas and make you own Bloody Marys were also a hit. Keep up the great work and can't wait to stop in for dinner!!
Another great meal and drinks at Crowded Castle. We were able to sit outside and since the street is shutdown, it felt more "normal" with people outside walking from store to store, yet still observing social distance rules. I highly recommend this restaurant/brewery, especially when it is nice outside!
Our first time at Crowded Castle since the start of the pandemic. We were excited to try the highly touted Merci kitchen. It was a disappointing experience all around — beer, food, and service. I recommend the other breweries in Phoenixville...
The food was amazing! I was a little hesitant at first because of the small menu, but everything was delicious and tasted freshly prepared. Our server was extremely attentive without being intrusive. The chef clearly cares about the quality of his dishes and made an effort to stop by every table. We will certainly be back to this great find!
The food was phenomenal! 10/10 recommend.
Delicious food, engaging staff, great beers. Open, friendly, and fun. Sophisticated menu.
Food was excellent! We look forward to a return trip!
Very welcoming atmosphere, great food, great staff.
Amazing farm to table food!!!
Justin is an excellent chef who truly cares about his craft and his guests. The menu is very unique and isn't replicated in the area. The aesthetic is very welcoming and the plates look like something out of a fine-dining cookbook, but priced fairly. Cocktails are crafty and tasty and the beer is enjoyable for all palates.
First date. Everything was perfect.
Really enjoyed the Valentine Dinner, food was amazing!
It was fantastic! From the food to the drinks to the service!
The selection of beer was wonderful. The food from Merci Kitchen was amazing. The service was great. We love coming here.
Great experience. Food was fenomenal. I was impressed with the Duck confit and pork belly.
Great spot for craft cocktails, craft beer, gourmet food, and relaxing atmosphere. Top service and friendly owners and staff. Crowded Castle has become one of our favorites in Phoenixville.
Merci kitchen within Crowded Castle has a small, but delicious menu. We dined with our 2.5 year old and the chef came out of the kitchen to personally give us some options for her. We ended up with homemade mac & cheese with a side of shrimp. She loved it! I had the Sous Vide Wings & the French dip (too much for one person), but I couldn't choose just one. They were both delicious. My husband had the steak sandwich, and he devoured it. Food timing was perfect, we didn't wait too long for our meal.
It was easy to get a reservation, and given the amount of tables, I would recommend it until they are able to open up Bridge street again in the Spring and have more capacity. The beer is not the best, but we went there for the food this time. Its hard to compete with some of the downtown breweries, but the craft cocktails looked delicious (i did not partake). Overall, we would definitely visit Merci @crowded castle again.
Great comfort food menu. Perfect for a cold holiday night.
Excellent meal and fantastic beers. This was our first time back to Crowded Castle since the kitchen opened. We were very pleased with the meal and the service was great. We always enjoyed going to Crowded Castle when they were just a drinks only bar, but we will be going more often now that we can get a meal and drinks. Lobster Mac and Cheese is not to be skipped! Also, they were super safe for COVID times, I watches a staff member wipe down a table and chairs as if they were trying to remove the wood itself. Cheers!
Beer and food are always delicious. Love the unique menu and creative beer combinations.
Beer and Brunch what could be better!! Happy to have a new brunch option in Phoenixville.
Whiskey Beef and Beer special event! The first of many I hope. There is another special event next month. I am very interested in that one too. We were able to sample several whiskeys from a local PA distillery. Paired the whiskey and cocktails with some awesome food.
We enjoyed the beer selection and this was the first time we had their dinner menu. The Atlantic Salmon and slow cooked ribs were both delicious. The bartender/server was super nice and really attentive! Great experience overall.
Had the chef special, Waygu Beef and it was amazing. Also loved the Confluence. Definitely will return!
Food was amazing and perfectly matched with great beer.
Staff was wonderful; Megan and a nice young man whose name I don't remember. Chef Justin was very friendly and interested. Loved the ambience; comfy and eclectic. Loved the sliders; wings were different, but good. Also had the corn (rib-like). Glad I tried it.
Solid craft beer selection. A small but fun menu, locally sourced. Attentive staff with a great sense of humor. Fun atmosphere with games and chalkboard walls. We'll definitely be back!
