A: I love the atmosphere at this place. My wife and I have sat a table once or twice, but we normally sit at the bar and chat with whoever is around. Everyone on staff is very friendly and there are generally a few other beer geeks to talk with.

Q: Great, great beer available on tap and in bottles. Nothing at all to complain about.

S: Impeccable. Matt does a superb job with the bottle shop and the bartenders are always immensely friendly.

S: From the draft list to the bottle shop--and not even mentioning all the special events--this is one high-quality bar and bottle shop and one of the best that I've been to. Matt gets in all sorts of great stuff both in bottles and on tap.

F: The food is quite tasty, though I will say I haven't ventured out very much, nearly always grabbing the cheesesteak.

The bottle shop can be a bit pricey, but that's just the nature of the beast in PA. The draft prices and especially the food prices are quite reasonable.

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.
