Stove and Tap

Reviewed By Sawwhetowls2 - Quakertown, Pennsylvania

This is such a great consistently perfect place to eat, drink and be merry! We adore the staff especially John, Wes and Seth. They are great servers, and John is an awesome bartender. Amy is also so personable she lifts our spirits just with her friendly smile. The food is great! Our favorites are the cheese curds because they are light and delicate, the beet salad is to die for with greens that seemed to be partially cooked, the pomegranate seeds added a very nice crunch too along with the very tasty granola and the flavor fullness added by the goat cheese. We also love the brisket dip sandwich. Quinoa and cauliflower chili was a new one for us this trip. Too spicy for me to try, my husband really liked it! He said it had an ever so slight Indian or Middle Eastern flavor that was just wonderful. Tonight we finished with the Stove Sundae, vanilla and chocolate (I chose only vanilla) ice cream with malted chocolate sauce, toffee sauce and pieces of their famous “Brookie”(brownie & cookie combo). We are stuffed and in heaven! Thanks again to everyone that always makes us feel like we are at home while eating here! It’s amazing! We love it here more than any other local restaurant!

Joseph Ambler Inn Pub & Restaurant

Reviewed By Eastcoast1 - MD

We went here for a wake and we couldn't had a better experience. The food and service were extraordinary. The food we had was buffet style, beef medium rare, chicken breast and salmon. The salmon was perfect, moist, flaky and delicious. The beef was flavorful and juicy. All the side were perfect. The green beans were my favorite. The bar is more wine and spirits than beer (all bottle). They could expand it a bit. It's a great place with good atmosphere. I highly recommend this place.

William Penn Inn

Reviewed By Ronald S - Jenkintown, Pennsylvania

I have been a regular customer of William Penn Inn since the 1980s. I have become more fond of this establishment over the years to the point where I find the experience an epiphany. I attribute the success of this restaurant to Peter Friedrich, the owner, and Gretchen Dowling, the general manager. Peter, in particular, takes a personal interest in my being satisfied, which I always am. I make my visits there a religious devotion by engaging the services of a limousine. The fare at this fine dining inn exhibits a Blitzkrieg of the whole gamut of the food chain. The wines in particular are well chosen. For the quality of food, I do not mind paying a what I consider a substantial bill. In conclusion, I have partaken of every reputable restaurant inf the Delaware Valley. William Penn Inn is the gold standard, by which no others are comparable.

The Mill

Reviewed By DiningDs - Blue Bell, Pennsylvania

Check this place out!! The owner has created some fabulous menu offerings including super-good brick oven pizzas traditional and unique, creative salads, sandwiches, and even mac & cheese. The food is fresh and served at the right temperature. Good for families, groups, singles, business lunch, dinner (BYOB), and I hear there's entertainment on Thursdays. The entire staff is warm and welcoming. The sauces are house made, too. This is not your average pizza joint. It's so much more. You can dine upstairs or order your meal at the counter and sit at a window seat or small dining room on the first floor. They're always busy when I go there, which is a great sign!

Pudges

Reviewed By CoffeenBeers - Baltimore, Maryland

These are authentic philly cheesesteaks. Check the bread boxes out when you enter. Sign of the real deal. We got a regular which we split and a large that lasted us 2 days. They are jammed with real ribeye beef and just enough cheese. For the price it was a diamond in the rough. This is a must even if its grab and go.

Yanni's Gyro

Reviewed By MaryEli666 - Boynton Beach, Florida

Seeking Greek food we returned to Yanni's on Main street at lunch. This storefront has separate menus for lunch and dinner with significant price differences. The chef delivered fresh Greek salad with Kalamati olives, Feta, tomato , onion, fresh lettuce and light dressing. beside our fresh high moussaka ( $7.99) . The slice was ample of this béchamel topped meat pie. The meat was yummy. Greek potato chunks with herbs were too few as they reminded us so much of our days in Greece.
The Gyro platter had all the fixins around the Greek salad including a large portion of the Beef-lamb gyro meat, tsiriki sauce, pita bread and tomato ( $7.99) . The sliced Greek potato chips were hot and seasoned uniquely. Truly a Greek treat.

The regular gyro sandwich platter is popular with an aluminum foil wrapped gyro sandwich overflowing with gyro meat accompanied by Greek chips ( $6.99) The salads are overflowing and delightful to see served.

Each platter was ample and luscious and fresh. For this pricey community Yanni's Gyro is a great find.

The Metropolitan

Reviewed By Dan B - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Can't imagine how this place manages to stay in business as the food is terrible. On a recent visit I had the Herb-encrusted Salmon with roasted asparagus and mashed potatoes.

When the salmon arrived, it was a nice looking piece of fish, but it completely lacked the flavor of salmon. I have no idea how you could cook salmon to completely remove the flavor, but somehow they did it. The so-called "roasted" asparagus was overcooked to a complete mush; it should have been put in a little jar and sold as baby food. The mashed potatoes were unobjectionable, but also unexceptional.

For a drink, I had a Metropolitan Mojito (at a cost of $7.50) that was bland and unmemorable. My companion said her food was blah also.

Really, don't waste your time and money here.

Yantze Chinese

Reviewed By Wayne3866 - Blandon, Pennsylvania

I was thoroughly impressed. Having had Chinese all around the country and even overseas. The food is very impressive. This is not your typical good "Chinese food", This is gourmet. I live in Blandon, which is over an hour away, and I will only eat here when it comes to Chinese food. They offer melons with the meal. The food is uniquely prepared if you are used to typical Chinese. The service is friendly and attentive. I took my food to go. Even the Wanton soup is more flavor. I would tell you to try this over any other Chinese you have had. This place was recommended by a coworker in Lansdale. I am glad I went.

If you are a sushi fan and appreciate Quality fresh sushi... you will love Umai. Chef Rae is very creative with his rolls and makes this BYBO in Lansdale extra special.

The staff is very sweet and accommodating. This restaurant is tiny so make sure you call ahead with a reservation.

Wonderful place - - keep it up Umai. You are the best.
