I have visited the bottle shop at Capone's before and I thought I would do a review after my recent visit to the bottle shop and restaurant. I received very good service from the owner, Matt when I entered the shop. He explained what the new arrivals were and let me check out the selection. I kept going over what I wanted in my head as I perused the shelves. He asked me if I wanted anything in particular and even suggested some bottles that were not stocked yet. I appreciated the selection, it was almost overwhelming. There are quality beers from Germany, Belgium, U.K. and the West coast and Local beers too. The prices seemed a bit higher than some other retailers, but perhaps it is the area they are in.

I chose to take a look in the restaurant and sample a couple pints. I received friendly service in the restaurant too. I thought the atmosphere was nice, relaxed yet modern. I wasn't overjoyed at the amount of smoke in the bar when there were very few patrons, but it is the bar. I enjoyed a crock of three cheese french onion soup which went well w/ my stout. I enjoyed my experience and will definitely return to check out the selection that is probably one of the best I have seen.

While I've not been to one of the Special Events/Release Tastings Capone's organizes I have stopped here a few times for the beer shop. This review is pretty much to echo what most other reviewers have said. This is one of the places outside of Philly to visit when looking for a "few good bottles." The selection is large. Freshness is usually good. Service is helpful and knowledgable. Value is reasonable given they are located in PA.

Not here often, but seems to have gone a bit downhill in the restaurant portion. The bottle shop's selection is as great as ever, and Matt is fantastic - but the restaurant is unfortunately bogged down by poor service and food, and an often loud and obnoxious crowd at the bar, making it hard to hear yourself think (let alone speak to friends) if you're in a booth. The food at the Black Friday brunch this past year was notably poor compared to prior years. Hope to update this at a later date with a higher score.
