My wife and I was in town from Indiana and staying at King of Prussia. I did some searching for restaurants with a good beer selection. I was familiar with Monk's in Philly, but stumbled onto an online beer list for Teresa's and was impressed. I'm a sour fan and while their selection can't match Monk's there, is was still pretty darn good. Most of the beer can be purchased for carry out, but some are marked as "In Bar" only. Unfortunately, this included 4-5 Cantillon selections. Some bottles are even discounted 20% for carry out. I left with 4 rare sours and a smile on my face, despite dropping a fair chunk of change.

The topper was they had Pliny the Elder on tap. I was told this was very limited and was due to the Philly beer week. I guess it's all in the timing.

The food as also very good. However, the restaurant side and bar side have different menus and they won't let you cross order. I think we were on the bar side, and the mussels were not available there. They still had plenty of good choices, including Chicken Piccata, one of my wife's favorites. Darn shame I'll only get to visit once.

We took the train out to Teresa's from Philadelphia due to its reputation for good craft beer. Teresa's did not disappoint. They had a nice Hill Farmstead Harlan. It was very crowded when we arrived, but we managed to get a coupled seats at the bar after a short wait. We were served promptly, and the tap list was very good, so we decided to put our name on the list for a table. Be prepared to wait to be seated though. It was a Saturday night, and very busy. We didn't mind the wait.

Teresa's has a nice atmosphere. The staff was friendly. The food was good, with generous portions. We ended up spending several hours here eating and drinking and joking with the waitress. Our party of four all agreed that it was worth a return visit, and worth the effort to take the train from Center City. If you are a beer geek like us, you must visit.

Came here for an evening with my girlfriend. Was told there was a 30 minute wait for a table, so we hung out at the bar for about ten minutes before a couple seats opened up. Our drink order was taken quickly by one of the three bartenders on staff, and filled just as quickly. Draft selection was impressive, with three European house beers, about a dozen more Euro brews, and about a dozen US craft, including the star: Maine Brewing's Zoe, which didn't even have a draft review on BA at the time I went. We ordered food, and it was excellent. I got the drunken mussels, which were fabulous, and my girlfriend ordered a steak taco type thing, which she loved. We finished by splitting a bottle of Speedway Stout, which was a steal at just $18. Most of the bottle prices seemed about standard, as did the drafts. Food was relatively cheap as well. Service was excellent at the bar all night. Will definitely come back, it was a fantastic experience.

Just got back from one of my many visits to Teresa's with my husband. This place never disappoints. The selection both on tap/bottled is very pleasing and the food is phenomenal. Be prepared to pay a bit above average but rest assured that it'll be worth it. My favorite part of this place aside from the service, food and selection would definitely have to be the lack of TVs. This might sound odd, but my favorite sort of drinking establishment is one in which I will not be surrounded by screaming sports fans. The dark European feel of Teresa's is perfect. I will come here time and time again, especially during "game time."

I have yet to go to any events here, but I know there are always awesome events going on. Check out their website and head on down because you can get some really rare/delicious brews by staying on top of events/releases. I was very happy to enjoy Parabola from FW tonight. On Sundays they have 1/2 off meat/cheese plates...I'd go every Sunday if I could!

Honestly, this is one of the better drinking establishments on the Main Line. Go if you are in the area!

A nice brew pub with an excellent selection of beer on tap as well as bottles. A good selection of Belgians as well as domestic craft brews. The staff provides good service and is very knowledgable about the selection. The food is good with mussels a specialty. They also have a fine selection of appetizers and sandwiches. This is a great place for a nice meal and a great beer. However, the one drawback is that the place is very noisy and can make it difficult to carry on a conversation. In spite of this, I recommend this place highly.

Based on the suggestion of Avalon68 (Frank) we hit this spot last night for a couple beers and a bit to eat. Great little location. We sat at the bar where we received excellent service with samples flying all around. In fact, once we established our craft beer bona fides, they would drop off samples without us even asking. Beer selection was very good. About 20 -25 tap line including two on cask. Sadly, both casks kicked as I arrived. Later in the evening they brought Troeg’s Hopback Amber on the cask line and it was fantastic. Bottle selection was pretty impressive and I could have gone for another visit and not checked off everything on the list I would have wanted to try.

Food was also very good. This is a more upscale Gastropub type location with a menu to match. When you order oysters they don’t have cocktail sauce. They bring a wasabi/caviar/vinegar ice that melts on the oyster and ads flavor. The Dirty Mussels with blue Cheese, Bacon and beer were fantastic. The frites were also just wonderful.

Definitely a worthwhile stop on any pub crawl, evening out or any occasion.

Teresa's is a "two part" café and bar right off Route 30 in Wayne, PA. I have no desire to dine in the café, but it definitely looked nice. Moving on to the bar...

Very contemporary atmosphere, lots of wood and stone. Not an especially big place, with a long bar against one wall that seats perhaps 20-25 people, and a row of tables against the other wall. Beer aside, they have a very impressive selection of wine to choose from. But though I like the occasional glass of wine, I'm really in it for the beer. So, about 25 beers on tap, two hand pumps, and the occasional firkin, and all good stuff from all over the world, with a good rotation. On my first visit, I enjoyed a brew from the new Missourian brewery Urban Chestnut, as well as a Kulmbacher brew (Germany). Even more selections in bottles, again including domestics and international brews.

Interesting food menu, including some comfort foods, some game items, and several unique twists on old ideas. Also included was a make-your-own meat and cheese plate (the wife's favorite); go on Sunday for this...it's half price cheese day! Food order got to us very quick. The place is well staffed, and for the most part, our bartenders are attentive and helpful. Prices were a little bit on the expensive side, but not too too bad, and again, the half price cheese was a wallet saver.

Definitely a multiple visit venue. And actually the more I visit, the more I seem to find that the selection of beers they get on tap are pound for pound probably the rarest of any place I frequent. Not all rare items, but the most rare items on any given day. Recommended.

Strictly beer speaking the only place in the philly burbs that compares is TJ's in Paoli. When you add Teresa's food menu to the equation you have the best place to eat drink and be merry. I went to their april showers bring may sours event last saturday and was totally in aw of the selection they put together...including pliny the elder and blind pig. any place that showcases Russian River brewery is alright by me. They also had two different Cantillons on the hand pump. The event was pleasantly overwhelming! Great event, great beer, great food...can't go wrong!

My first trip to Teresa's, I was a complete novice; I could literally count the number of times I had actually consumed an alcoholic beverage on one hand. I couldn't have picked a better place to go. The bartenders were all insanely knowledgeable, kept asking questions and kept the samples coming. Of all things, these rat bastard psychotics feed me Jolly Pumpkin Madrugada Obscura on the third or fourth try, and I loved it. How the crap do you even pull that off? Well done, gents.

They always have a great selection on tap, with the list on the website updated almost immediately as it changes (minutes, not days), and the bottle selection goes beyond impressive into almost intimidating territory, but the entire staff is great about explaining things and answering even my rookie questions. I have a personal soft spot for the little quotes from people like Ernest Hemingway, Frank Zappa, and Greg Koch on every page of the beer menu. 20% off take-out bottles, too, so I basically never have to worry about running out of crazy crap to try.

The food is really terriffic, too. The stinkiest of cheeses (half-price on Sundays), an outstanding brunch, and a well-thought out and executed menu. Even if I never drink another drop, I will support any place with enough sense of humor to serve rabbit fritters with a carrot sauce. Good range on the menu, too, from solid burgers and wings, to game and some very decent oysters. The Cheesy Pig salad, with goat cheese + bacon fritters, is just cheating if you ask me.

My only beef with the place is that the same architectural elements that make it look cool (exposed brick and ductwork, high metal ceiling, long narrow room) also make it an absolute echo chamber. If they ever decided to have live music there, they wouldn't even need a PA system. It can get hard to carry on a conversation once it gets past about half full. We usually end up going for lunch or on Sundays, so it's rarely a problem for me, but it could be tough as a Friday happy hour place.

To be fair, I have a kind of limited experience, but this is the best bar I've been to yet. Worth the trip out of the city. Yeah, I said it.

My favorite place to go to in the 'burbs of Philadelphia if I want a combination of great beer and great food.

The bartenders are all very knowledgeable and helpful, and will gladly give you a sample if you are unsure.

Great and thorough selection of beers. Locals, Imports, Hard to finds. You name it. While some bars specialize in local, and others foreign or belgian, Teresa's is very well-rounded with good options for every mood.

Their food is top notch. Not your typical bar food. Their cinnamon wings are the best wings i've had in the area (i believe they won 'best of philly' last year). The wings are whole wings, not cut in half at the joint - so you get 5 whole meaty wings (which, if halved, would be 10 wings). Baked, not fried. Somehow it works.

Their bottle selection is also available 'to go' with 20% off with that option. Sometimes bottles of vintage Cantillon will pop up.

Also, the only place i've been to that will have Pliny the Elder on tap and have it last multiple days. And they have it often.

On Mondays, they do 'buck a shuck' oysters all day and night. They are served with this amazing frozen wasabi caviar stuff that I think is the most creative and tasty accompaniment to oysters i've ever had.

Brunch here on Sundays is a must. The menu is always changing and it has never been crowded when i've gone. Easy to avoid the crowds of city brunch from now on now that I know how great it is here.

The only downside is the noise - brick walls, tin ceiling = lots of echoing and noisiness when the place is crowded. This comes in handy, though, when I go out to dinner here with my equally noisy family.
Also, would be great if they had TVs, but that would probably just add to the noise and some people might actually prefer a place with no TVs. It definitely cuts back on the rowdy sports fans, if that is not your cup of tea.

Theresa's is an excellent bar. Food is very good and tap list is great. Bartenders are helpful and will gladly give you a taste of something. Great bottle selection as well. Only drawback is no TVS and it can get loud with the brick walls. A couple nice flat screens would put it over the top. Bottle selection is great but not always up to date. Make sure you try some of there cheese platters. Nothing like it when they have a good sour on tap with some top notch cheese trays. I have never been to the restaurant part on the other side so this review is for the bar only

This place is one of the better beer bars of the burbs of philly. I went there today and the only grip, I have is parking nowhere to park, but owell. I walk into this nice casual cafe and right away I was seated by the waiter and got my hill farmstead Abner in matter of 5 seconds, the service is great here. I ordered the chicken panini and it was a solid dish for lunch and than finished up with a piny the elder!!

I can't believe this place wasnt packed usually a keg of elder will kick in 1hr at capones! There was noone here and I loved it, I will be back for sour day!

I visited this place while on a visit back to my old hometown. Some friends have been talking about it for awhile now. Three of us met at 7 pm on a Friday night, so it was crowded as expected. We had to wait about 45 minutes to be seated, but we did not mind because we were able to enjoy some of the many wonderful beers they had on tap. Just a sampling of what the had was Troegs Nugget Nectar (Hand Pump), Founders Imperial Stout, Mikkeller Koppi IPA, Bell's Two Hearted Ale, a black saison( can't remember the brewery, and many, many more. They also have a large selection of bottled beers from the US and abroad. The staff is very knowledgeable about the beer. Our server was able to make some great recommendations for us based on our likes. The food is very unique here as well. The offer standard fare, but also items like escargot, rabbit, llama burgers, and many other interesting things. I enjoyed the food. They also have a great cheese plate selection. This is a great place that is worth checking out if you are in Southeast PA anytime!

Stopped in on Friday night for dinner with my wife. I'd been to the Italian BYOB (Teresa's Cafe) before, but had not been to the Next Door bar. Teresa's is located along a charming block of Wayne Avenue in downtown Wayne.

Essentially, Teresa's is a bar with some tables for two clustered in the front of the space. The bar runs the entire left hand side of the room and across from the bar is a series of booths. The room was very warm, cozy and inviting.

The beer selection was very impressive. There were about 20 beers on tap and then the book of beer detailed 100s of available bottles. The tap list was well balanced and featured a diverse selection of Belgian and American styles. I started my evening with Sly Fox Chester County Bitter from the cask. The waiter, Ryan, was friendly and knowledgable. We chatted about the beers available and he was a good resource.

I had a Terrapin Hopsecutioner to go with my meal. The food was wonderful. I opted for the steak frites while my wife had the mussels provencal. Both entrees were delicious and extremely reasonably priced. My wife decided to have some bread pudding for dessert, I went for a glass of Dark Horse's Plead the Fifth Imperial Stout which was a great way to wrap up a good meal.

The total bill including tax and tip was $70 which I thought was a good value for the quality meal I had. Teresa's Next Door is one of those beer bars that excels both with their food and their beer selection.

It's a great spot on the Main Line; one which I'll be visiting again in the future.

Popped into this place on the off chance that they would have some Cantillon I could take home with me, mission partially completed.

This place is a bar with tables, not much more. I sat at the bar. It was busy but while I sat there it got less busy and more busy. People (bartenders) were friendly and talkative, knowledgeable about beer, it was nice.

Place has 20 taps (about) and about 200 bottles that you can pick from. Some of the stuff gets expensive but generally it does not. Its a pretty even place, good stuff on draft, great stuff in bottles.

I ordered the fries and they were good and crispy. I would go here again if I were in Wayne.

My favorite bar on the Main Line! Great happy hour (4-6) with $3 American and $5 Belgian drafts. They rotate the drafts almost daily, and the website is always updated. Make sure to look out for the events as they get a bunch of rare stuff. The food, especially oysters (Monday is buck-a-shuck) and mussels is great. The Cuban sandwich is also delicious. The wait staff are all incredibly knowledgeable, and very willing to explain styles or give samples. The atmosphere is very old-school (no tv or anything like that), but this leads to a very relaxed atmosphere. The wine and whiskey lists are also worth mentioning. A great stop in the Philly suburbs!

Transcribed from undated notes, probably early-to-mid June 2009.

I was quickly coming to enjoy SEPTA's Regional R5 line, finding that I fit in so well among the glitterati and old money of the Main Line that I began to wonder why it had taken me so long to visit. Ha! The only commonality between us is that I used to mainline once upon a time. Oops, just kidding. Never cop to anything, that's my motto.

TND, as I was told that it is generally abbreviated, turned out to be a mere crosswalk from the train station. Entering, the m.d.s. was in the vestibule, directly between Teresa's Restaurant and Teresa's Next Door with the former to the left and the latter to the right, facing. TND was a long, narrow establishment with a VERY European mindset. A window fronted the joint (just to reinforce what a class act I am), along with some standard tables and chairs with a line of them running aft along the right wall before segueing into booth seating. The floor was stone as was the back wall with its opening for the kitchen. The left wall began with a series of coat hooks, followed by a cut-out for the entries to the twin unisex lavs, and then to the long stone-topped bar. The back bar had four shelves for various beer glasses, followed by a shelf of wine and liquor bisected by a line of twenty-three (23) CO2 taps and one (1) N2 tap plus two (2) cask ale handpumps. Under the back bar were six (6) double-doored coolers which were home to two hundred and fifty-plus (250 +) bottled beers, all licensed for take-away.

Does $ = atmosphere? In some cases, yes and this was one of them. I could lie to you and tell you that I had been much more at home at The Flying Pig, but the truth is that I was equally welcomed here. On this, my initial visit, my server was Katie, the Boston lawyer. I also noted that I enjoyed the smells coming from their oak wood-fired grill and oven and forget Jimmy John's free smells.

I CAN tell you that I have been back at least once since then. The taps rotate and at some point, they held a Ballast Point promotion and given my relation to one of their brewers, Colby Chandler, I try to represent when possible.

Finally, you must try one of their mixed cheese plates. Spendy? Yeah, but totally worth the expense.

Went here about two weeks ago. Just getting around to writing the review

The next door bar is pretty narrow but deep with one side being almost completely taken up by a very long bar with plenty of seating. Behind the bar there are a bunch of shelves full of glassware and a few chalk boards with the draft list on them. Opposite the bar is a bunch of booths to handle the overflow from the bar. The service was good but we had to wait for a while to get a refill when they were standing not even five feet away.

The quality and selection of food is excellent. They have a great selection of appetizers, seafood, cheese plates, sandwiches, burgers and a few full entree's. I had a burger with gruyère cheese and Prosciutto. It was awesome but it comes with greens rather than fries so be prepared to pay extra if you want them.

The selection of beer was very good. I had a RR Pliny the Elder, Cantillon Saint Lamvinus, and a cask Allagash Black on the hand pump. All were served in the appropriate glasses and they were all awesome. There was still a few more I really wanted to try but I just didn't have the time. They also have a very large bottle list of beers from around the world. The rarer beers are pricey but they are worth every penny. Next time I will get one for sure.

Overall, a great bar with good food and even better beer. I will return for sure.

just visited this past weekend and had the time of my life. 4 batches of consecration, and supplication on draft! my two favorite beers! even knowing they will only be on draft for a limited time, it seems this place would usually have the cream of the crop brews. the trip to get there was well worth it. the rest of the draft selection was amazing, as was the bottle selection. definitely on the up scale, but pricing didn't seem to bad. the bar staff was very knowledgable, much more than i had expected. didn't try a meal but i did have a cheese tray that was delicious. hopefully i will be able to visit this place again in the near future. my only complaint was the hostess didn't seem too friendly. i think she was in need of a stiff one, and i'm not talking about a drink. if your in the area this place is a must.

I've been going to tnd for years and I am compelled to give my thoughts on this wonderful establishment.
The draft and bottle selection are to say the least mind blowing pair that with great food and a very pleasant atmosphere and you get a great place to have a beer. Ive never been disappointed with the beers or the tasty grubs. Its absolutely spotless and just a very comfortable place to be. A bit on the pricey side but its rich white people land what do you expect. All in all one of if not the best bar I've ever been to. Thanks for the great times.

The wife and I stopped in at Teresa's for dinner on the way home from Philly. We were't sure what to expect, but I had heard very good things so I figured it was worth a shot. I have to say, it was a good call. The staff were very friendly and the food was outstanding. I enjoyed the mussels done dirty style (giggity giggity), my wife enjoyed a mushroom sandwich. Our waitress was eager to talk beer and make recommendations, and the selection from which we had to choose from was pretty impressive. Plenty on tap, and a very nice selection of bottles. My only complaint is that we live too far away to enjoy Teresa's on a regular basis...

Stopped in Saturday afternoon for lunch and some to-go beer. Review is from notes. Thanks for the recommendation, callmemickey.

This quiet little spot in the quaint village of Wayne is a very modern take on the American pub. The bright red hanging candle lights, cool marble bar and shiny brass taps bring to mind trendy night clubs and casino taprooms, but the subdued vibe and lack of obtrusive television sets makes for a more relaxed and refined experience.

Sporting 24 seasonally-influenced taps (witbiers and hefeweizens from Allagash, The Bruery, etc.), two hand pumps, a variety of meads and a comprehensive beer list featuring over 200+ bottles, this out-of-the-way spot makes its presence known fast.

I was impressed to find several entries from Russian River, Fantome, Mikkeller and Cantillon, as well as some Italian micros and vintage bottles. The beer list was untarnished, easy to read and meticulously detailed. Patrons are also allowed 144 oz. of to-go beer, which is a plus.

I decided to saddle up at the bar and give Ommegang's Zuur a spin (mediocre, in my opinion). Foodwise, I selected the spicy lamb gyro with feta cheese. The meat was tasty, but the feta was way too prominent and it nearly overpowered the rest of the dish. Those not up for greek can check out there sandwiches, salads, mussels and cheese plates.

My bartender was particularly friendly and attentive. She had no trouble grabbing me a warm Fantome Brise-Bons Bons from the basement, gave me a free pint of Sly Fox O'Reilly Stout when she accidentally poured it and was never phony or overly talkative.

All in all, this is a nice little spot for lunch. It's a block from The Beer Yard, chill as can be and a great way to beat this unbearable heat.

Went to Teresa's for the first time this past weekend and left feeling very impressed with the beer selection as well as the great knowledgeable staff.

This place is in a nice little section in the main line, complete with little shops, a few bars/restaurants and decent parking available.

The "next door" bar is to the right in the entryway, but all beers can be had at either place (cafe). The place has tile floors, tables, booths and a long bar with a tremendous amout of approprite glassware.

It is a rather loud place, which is probably due to the tile floors. This didnt bother me to much, as I am a loud talker when I drink anyway.

The beer slection was fantastic, maybe a hundred+ bottles and over 20 top notch brews on tap. The selection was varied and tremendous.

The glassware was appropriate for each selection we choose. The server was very much educated on the brews, and was always there to serve another brew. We went there on philly beer week, and there were some scratch Troegs there and it was great.

The only downside was the food, as a first impression our cuban sandwiches were very dry. The pork was dry and the "ham" was like a shaving you could see through. Almost like a bacon slice. The bread was good. The fries were good though.

All in all a great place to drink some of the finests brews. And a selection that is hard to beat. The prices were resonable for the brews. But the sandwiches were way overpriced for a small, dry sandwich.

Great place to drink the night away, in a nice area.

My wife and I decided to check this place out after hearing rave reviews and stalking the tap list for a couple weeks. As soon as you walk into this place, you know its going to be quality. Stone tile floors, booths down the right side of the room, open tables up front by the windows, and the long bar on the left side with about 20 seats. Ginormous glassware selection prominently displayed behind the bar, about 20 taps, 2 hand pumps, and one nitro tap when we were there, and everything was craft selection. Great selection within the beers themselves, with a wide range of styles represented. Great service, knowledgeable and courteous staff. The food selection is good, and almost every item has a gourmet aspect, adding a good deal of uniqueness to the establishment. I highly recommend the artichokes as a starter. If you're drinking from bottles, it can sure get expensive real quick, but its certainly not necessary with the draft selection. TND lives up to the hype, and we will surely be revisiting in the future.

I have been here numerous times as was surprised that I hadn't entered a review yet. I believe that this building used to house a paint store but the restaurant Teresa's took it over and made it an upscale gastropub/beer bar.

The space is pretty narrow but deep with one side of the room being taken up by a very long bar with ample seating. Behind the bar there are several shelves of appropriate glassware. This looks really cool but they don't seem to ever use the glasses which is very frustrating. Why have them lined up and not use them with the appropriate beer? Decoration?

The other side of the room has quite a few table tops and about ten to twelves booths. The place is very clean and pristine with a few Belgian beer sign and has a sterile felling to it. It can be very loud in there especially on weekend nights and the crowd can be a little douchey but it is still a fun place to drink some great beers.

The quality of food and selection is excellent. They have a great selection of appetizers, mussels, cheese plates, sandwiches and full entree. The entree can be a bit pricey but all of the other dishes are affordable and very tasty. I've samples most of te menu and everything I have ordered has been great.

The selection of beer here is usually very good often with a nice selection of radioes. The main focus is on Belgians but they have a great selection of American, English, Scandinavian and Asia beers. They have around sixteen beers on tap and a very large bottle list of beers from around the world. The rarer beers can get pricey but they sell bottles to go and have a decent happy hour.

Overall, the selection and food are very good and the service is decent but the clientele can be a bit overbearing and obnoxious. Other than that, it's a great place to sample some great beers and eat some very good food.
