I have been to Warwick plenty of times for dinner and even a few beer events, figured it is time to sit down and write a review.

Located right in the heart of Hummelstown is "the wick." Once you figure out how to get into the place you are greeted by a large horseshoe shaped bar with a dinning room or two off to the sides. Vibe is decent but can be a bit intimidating at times. My service has always been a bit hit or miss. On some occasions I have had great service where they are very attentive, and upon other visits I have been left waiting for beers for long periods of time. The food has always been pretty solid. Your typical bar food with a few extra things mixed in, easily something for every taste.

The quality is pretty good. Most of my beers have been served in the correct glasses and I have never had a problem with my food. The selection appears to go up and down. On some occasions they will have some really awesome stuff on, mostly from local places, but other times it has been a little disappointing. When they had the Stone Tap Takeover they had some awesome beers on, but it was followed up with some less than stellar offerings.

Overall if you are in the area and looking for a place to grab dinner and a pint you could do a lot worse than "the wick."

Ate here with my wife on 2014-02-01 after a big day of hiking.

There are 17 rotating taps. Today was a Rivertowne Brewing tap takeover. There were 10 of those beers and 7 other craft beers including the mighty Bell's Hopslam. I had a sampler of the Rivertown beers and then had a glass of their Shootout Porter (the best of the bunch). This restaurant is close to the Troegs Brewery and there was a poster saying they are having a release party for Troegs' new "Cultivator" Helles Bock in a few days.

The outside of the building is old, well-kept and appealing. This carries over into the spacious interior. We sat on a side porch with sun coming through the big glass windows, which was nice on this winter day.

Our food was very, very good with a nod to the grilled portabello appetizer. I had a Pennsylvania Dutch inspired chicken marsala which had a LOT of butter but was light on the marsala wine flavor - hence the PA Dutch influence. The amount of the chicken, mushrooms and fettuccine was generous.

My wife had a crab cake on top of three grilled portabello mushrooms with a rich, buttery sauce. Her dish was just amazing. Delicious. I'll get it next time I go. It was served with perfectly cooked steamed broccoli and cauliflower.

Our side salads, with white basalmic dressing, were good but mostly greens. I could have used more salad ingredients.

The bread was fresh backed. The raspberry custard dessert was homemade and absolutely excellent.

Our server and the rest of the staff were personable and friendly. We really liked the vibe of this place and plan to go back.

I often visit the Wick for beer and really enjoy this place. I had my graduation party there this past May and the bartenders and owner were VERY helpful in allowing me to get sixtels of Stone Arrogant Bastard and Oskar Blues Momma's Little Yella Pils. The food here is always awesome. I really like the HopBack Amber Ale chili they have (made with Troegs HopBack of course). The draft selection always allows me to try something new and interesting and I never find myself having to go out of my way for anything. Definitely a good spot to check out for both the food and beer. Prost!

I had my graduation party at the Wick a few years ago, and since my craft knowledge has substantially branched out, I figured it would be nice to stop in for a refresher. The place was empty on a Saturday afternoon, but the bartender was quite friendly. Beers were largely affordable, as we got out of there for $21 for five beers, but some prices seemed a little high (7.75 for a pint for Rubeaus, for example). As for the draft list, there were around 16 or so selections...pretty wide variety, with five Otto's brews on as part of a promotion along with selections from all across the country, including Rubeaus, Crooked Tree, Chimay White (which I can't recall seeing on draft every so often), and a draft only Weyerbacher release. Didn't try the food this time around. Makes a nice stop after Troegs, assuming you can make a left out of there.

I went to the warwick a few weeks ago and enjoyed some beer with my brother Dr G and Justin, we came for the Gumballhead and Firkin of Perpetual which was fresh and had some lemon in the cask. The wait was not long even though the place was very crowded in the bar area. I had the beers in the dining area near the patio which is spatious and has a relaxed atmosphere.

The quality of everything served is top notch. I felt welcomed by Chris the bar manager and the wings we got with habanero were so hot my brother shed some tears after eating three. I found the selection to be good with Founders, Troegs, and the special keg on that night. I would return since the prices are reasonable and they usually have a good lineup including locals like Nugget Nectar and Millbock.
