Typical bar food. Nice service, but were seated next to bar, not very appetizing. Went to listen to a band, but website was not updated and band came on much later than website suggested. Disappointed as that was the main reason we choose here.
First time visiting because other arrangements fell through. Definitely a neighborhood gem and will revisit in the near future.
Service was great, fast and polite, bar was very backed up , way too loud in the dining area for me
Good value and service. Outside seating is plentiful and well organized.
There were three of us for dinner, only one dinner was not as described. . My husband is a butcher and he was very disappointed in the brisket tacos as they were chuck meat not a brisket.
We were early at 5 pm and no one came to seat us for about 5 minutes even though I called out. Perhaps you need some sort of signal when the door is opened or a motion sensor at the Maître D station. Other than that I have been to this location before and Like it very much. Our wait person was very pleasant but was clearly new and has a few things to learn but she'll figure it out. We all had to start somewhere.
Overall, a very good experience. They had our reserved table ready and on time for us. The server was very nice. She was busy so things went a little slower than had hoped for (it was a Saturday evening at 6:30pm so that's to be somewhat expected). The beer was all brought in plastic disposable cups, which seemed odd since we were in the inside dining area and other tables had glass pints for their beers. Overall, good service and good food. Would definitely go back (and ask for glass pints).
Great American Pub in Phoenixville is awesome. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is fun and lively. It has quickly become my favorite hot spot!
We were seated outside by the host a gentleman and it took over 25 mins to get a waitress. We finally got a waitress ordered drinks and they took another 20 mins to arrive. We got appetizers and they were brought to the table without plates, napkins or silverware. We ordered another round of drinks to which this took another 30 minutes. We asked the waitress several times about where are drinks were to wish she replied "its not my fault, the bar is backed up". We ordered dinner and still not have our second round of drinks which were ordered before dinner. I understand that it has been extremely difficult to find staff however, this was not a pleasant experience for us. Needless to say, we will not be back in the future.
We went for Brunch and the food, service and outdoor seating were all great. And you can’t beat $5 mimosas!
Good time good food, wonderful service
Server lacked experience and enthusiam. Very inexperienced
Good burger, pretzels and drinks. Horrible pizzas. Good service.
Very cool old building. Waitress was very nice. Food was delicious.
So much fun - great outdoor seating, quick service, delicious food.
Food and ambience we’re great as usual, service was horrible.
Food was just okay, lacking flavor. Waited almost 15 minutes for service.
Very surprised they didn’t have any Mother’s Day specials. Food was overall okay as was the service.
Brisket Tacos are delicious and the blueberry lemonade drink is awesome!
Had reservation for inside but sat outside since it was nice evening and they had a singer on the patio. There was about a 15 minute wait for a table for 4 - not bad at 7:30 on the weekend. Took a while for the waiter to get our order but she took our food order immediately. The food was better than expected. I had brisket tacos and the meat was tender and full of flavor - and the tortillas were double layered so not soggy, the avocado was also a great addition. We also had brisket fries as an app. The fries were thick and cooked perfectly and held up under the toppings - I had to hold back so I didn't fill up on those. Will definitely be back.
We had a great evening for cocktails and appetizers. It was nice to sit outside on the patio.
Great food and great ambiance. Love the dog friendly outdoor seating and the many vegan options!
Fun! Trivia night was good too. Beers are always cold.
Their spinich crab dip was out of this world! We both devoured our meals as they were delicious!
Service was great and the antique decor was beautiful. We actually looked up the history of the old hotel which was pretty neat.
Definitely will be returning.
Food was good. We sat in the bar area. The seating in the booths was cramped for average size adults
It was a big disappointment. Dirty glasses, got the order wrong, waiter never checked on us to see if we needed anything and when asked to speak to manager, she didn’t offer to do anything and acknowledged that there were previous issues with our waiter
Delicious food, always grateful for the vegan options! The impossible quesadilla with cashew crema was outstanding. Service was pretty slow but there was only one server outside and she had a lot of tables. Totally understandable and we were in no rush.
Fun trivia night. But, wish the specials were better.
Nice atmosphere. Safe. Clean environment. Stick with the pub food. The salmon was overcooked and dry. My wife lived the reuben.
We love coming here! We always have good food and have a good time. The spinach artichoke and crab dip is usually my favorite but this time it tasted different and was very very full of artichokes. And the outside was still a bit cold in the tent, as they don’t have the propane for the heaters anymore. But everything else was great!
Our server was amazing! Food was so delicious and we had a great time celebrating our anniversary!
Good place for basic bar food, burgers and wings etc. big selection of drafts. Not 4-star dining and doesn’t pretend to be. Great spot for a casual meal and a beer or cocktail
Cool spot but food was very boring - not much flavor to speak of. Service was pretty bad as well, didn’t get plates for appetizers or utensils for the the entree. Also had to ask for napkins because those are apparently an afterthought. Waitress did give us a free beer and apologized for the terrible service, for what it’s worth. Phoenixville has like 25 better options.
Food was great, the restaurant was really busy so service was a little slow. I’ve been here many times before and this is normally not the case. Still had a great time.
The food was great but it was very pricey. $14 for a burger which didn’t include fries is too expensive for my taste.
More food options and specials would be nice. The only burger option was build your own burger.
I like to refer to this as our Valentines disaster. We had a reservation. The hostess was no where to be found and when she showed up she was somewhat unfriendly and didn’t know what she was doing. When she sat us our table was disgusting. It took 20 minutes to get a server to our table. The “busboy” bringing out food was clueless and rude to people. Everyone in our side of the building were complaining about horrible or non existent service. Our appetizer was served on a wooden cutting board and the dipping sauces were missing and we didn’t get small plates to use. The entrees were pretty tasty but way overpriced as were the drinks. This place has been having the same complaints for over a year now... THATS A MANAGEMENT FAIL NOT THE STAFF. You had almost no staff on during a busy holiday and the ones that were there were untrained or inexperienced.
We will not be returning and we will make sure none of our friends do either. Great American Grill?? Great American Fail
Although my boyfriend and I were there 15 minutes early for our 11am reservation (right when they begin serving lunch) we were seated and offered drinks right away! Our waitress was not bothered AT ALL by our early arrival. Our plates arrived in a timely fashion, and I was BLOWN away at the deliciousness of the Impossible Quesadilla- I thought to myself “this is WAY too good to be vegan!” And my picky boyfriend was satisfied with Mac and cheese and fries. I also enjoyed the truffle Asiago tater tots and red beer ketchup from the Valentine’s menu. Will DEFINITELY be back.
Great food beer and entertainment
Went for Happy Hour. Brielle was our server and remembered us. We got drinks and each had food and spent just under $35. You CANNOT beat that price especially in Phoenixville.
