vibe: 4 | quality: 5 | service: 4 | selection: 5 | food: 5 | $$

The wife and I finally were able to hit this fine establishment on our way back to NJ from Valley Forge. The atmosphere was good, but there wasn't anything differentiating or outstanding about it. The patrons were great, but the nondescript green/brown decor had me thinking that we were sitting in a Houlihan's, or just some random Irish pub. The service was also good, but (a) the kid serving us seemed ticked off that he had to work on Labor Day weekend, and (b) he didn't seem as beer knowledgeable as I had expected him to be. That being said, he was both polite and attentive.

As for every other category, this place was beyond exceptional, with a heavy German influence not only on the vast array of beer styles on hand, but also on the food menu, which features homemade Bavarian-style pretzels, horseradish mustard, all sorts of wurst, etc. The beer selection featured not only German-style beers, but also a tremendous dry Irish stout...O'Reilly's (A+)...as well as some American-style ales and Belgian-style brews. All were well above-average, if not excellent. As for the food, wow...the pretzel appetizer and the pretzel-melt sandwich with homemade ham, mustard, and slaw. My wife jokingly asked me if I was going to lick my plate.

I noticed some other reviews where someone walked in and ordered something totally outside the realm of German-influenced cuisine. That kind of struck me as odd, since both the beer and food menu (and the fact that you are in Pennsylvania) hinted to me that German cuisine would likely be the house specialty. After all, I would never order a pizza at a steak restaurant. Stick to the German dishes...you won't be disappointed.

I will definitely be looking to go back very soon, if not visit the Royersford location.
