I booked this restaurant thinking it was another one! When we got there I was kind of surprised by how loud it was but I have to say that they had live music and it was pretty good. Our waitress was really nice and the nachos we had as an appetizer were very good. Overall it turned into a fun night although a bit unexpected.

We have eaten hear a number of times and this was a down time. The food here is quite good and today’s was tasty, but with the kitchen overwhelmed plating and presentation was quite lacking. I would recommend the restaurant but maybe not in a Saturday night rush!

We enjoyed Sunday brunch at Stove and Tap this past weekend. i had written a not so nice review about a month before, but due to the excellent customer service of their management (julie) we decided to give it a 2nd try. Through very good communication Julie offered to comp our bill if we came in again. she did so kindly and promptly.
The service was much improved. Our food was delicious. Thank you again Julie for handling this so professionally. I highly recommend having a spicy pineapple margarita and nachos. You wont be disappointed.

As to be expected at Stove and Tap. The Gay Street mule was sweeter than it should have been but alright. The spicy peanut seitan wrap was awesome- I was super impressed. Their shoe string fries are also on point (just a little too salty). The broccoli margarita with pesto was mostly marinara with dollops of pesto. Too much crust but overall good consistency.

I had been to the Lansdale PA location and had a nice experience there and the new West Chester location did not disappoint! Right from when we were greeted to paying the check - servers and hosts were excellent. The food was very good - nice takes on things like tacos, wings, and burgers. I didn’t have a drink as I was driving after I just moved my son into college nearby but the variety and bar look very inviting. I would highly recommend you stop in and have a drink and grab some food here. Nice addition to an already busy and vibrant town.

i was very excited to try this restaurant for the first time. However i wont be back with all of the other wc dining options. The food was very good for my friends. BUT my food (greek omelette) did not arrive. Since my waiter never came to check on us after my friends were half finished with their food i went inside (outdoor table) and let someone know. The young woman (not my waiter) was extremely helpful and apologetic. After another 10 minutes my meal came out but it was wrong. So i decided just to say no thank you to anything else. Finally my waiter comes to check on us and he is barely apologetic blaming the kitchen staff. he does remove it from the bill but no other offer was made. I understand mistakes BUT the matter should have been handled much more graciously then “uhhhh i dont know whst happened”.

A small, but inventive menu. The Catfish Po-Boy sandwich was excellent as was the Salmon. The dry-rubbed chicken wings are very unusual and delicious. Heavily spiced, but not hot. The decor was interesting, but a little austere, Service was excellent.

The pizza crust was done perfectly but my husband said it was otherwise tasteless. Cheese was super weird consistency. Salmon was perfectly seasoned and cooked. My wine was terrible. It tasted and smelled like hand sanitizer. It was our first visit. We may give it another try.

The wait time at our preferred restaurant was over an hour so we opted to take our two grandkids to Stove and Tap. Big mistake. The menu was one side of one page. Nothing looked good. Decided to start with apps.
The nacho chips with chicken were devoid of cheese, peppers, and any thing good. The wings were ok. The Mac and cheese was dry and chewy.
Our server was nice but not experienced. The whole atmosphere was sports bar done poorly.

Needless to say we stopped with just apps and won’t return. Too bad. Great location and good venue. Needs major attention.

We went for our anniversary dinner. Loved the burger bomb, the brussel sprouts, the pork bao buns, and the fried cheese. The peppers with the fried cheese were hot. Our only complaint was just that we would have liked more water and didn’t see our waitress for awhile. But the food was superb! A $20 burger is pricey, but it was good for a special occasion.

The service was excellent. Appetizers were very good. We had brisket Mac & cheese. The main course was mediocre at best. I had pesto roasted salmon, which didn’t have any pesto or seasoning of any kind on it. It was clearly farm raised so very bland. There was maybe a teaspoon of pesto dripped around the outside edge of the plate. My husband had Indian seasoned steak which he said had very little seasoning. His main course also was mediocre. Drinks were excellent. Husband had an old fashion that was excellent & I had a glass of Sauvignon blanc which was a very generous poor. I would definitely go back & try another dish as everything else was outstanding.

Overall, we had a nice lunch out but it's obvious that some of the waitstaff are still getting their bearings. It was mid-afternoon when we arrived so only a few tables were occupied but the server kept pulling a Houdini. We were seated promptly but did not immediately realize that the menu was virtual. Three of the four of us were unable to get the QR code to even work though. So, after about 5 minutes of trying to access the menu, our server came over with waters and we requested paper menus. That took some time because they did not have any printed and had to print them out. Then we had to wait to ask clarifying questions about food/drinks. It probably took 20 minutes just to get drinks on the table. Additionally, she served my husband a cold can of beer with a warm/hot glass. I understand that it had probably just come out of the dishwasher but that seemed silly to me. When he asked for a cool glass, they said they had none. So, he had to dump his ice water in the hot glass so he could use that one for his beer. The server was very nice and she expressed apologies at every turn, but it seemed like maybe she was inexperienced?

The previous reviewer is accurate about the menu being somewhat limited; however, the quality of that food more than makes up for the number of options! Once the food arrived, we were glad that we had waited. I'd love to try this place again for the food but I'm not sure that I will because the service left much to be desired.
