I enjoyed the restaurant. I would like to see a little more options on menu and the entree my husband got was kind of small (the hen). Our waitress was wonderful and I can see coming there in the summer to enjoy the view.

We stared the night at the bar enjoying our drinks! Unfortunately our meal did not measure up to the drinks. Our mushroom arancini appetizer came out frozen in the middle. We sent it back and they brought us a new one and it was cold in the middle as well. They were obviously frozen. The wait staff was great and took it off our bill... unfortunately the food did not get any better. My steak was luke warm and extremely salty. And my husbands dessert was frozen as well. Nice ambiance being by the river, but the food was not worth the price.

Loved hearing the guitar music by Bunny! It added a beautiful vibe. We went b/c we wanted to ehar her, and were so glad we did! The Deck is a great date night spot and we will be back. The view of the river was so lovely.
Our server did SO many things wrong- we waited 20 minutes before anyone came to our table. Another 10 minutes til we got a glass of water. ANOTHER TEN BEFORE WE GOT OUR DRINKS. Once we ordered food, that was out very fast and it was piping hot- terrific!
The mussels in the Thai broth were out of this world.
Our bill had extra drinks on it that we never ordered. The server fixed that, but ???
We will be back for the mussels and view and music. Lovely.

Everything was fine until we left and the valet guys couldn’t find our keys for our car. Waiting, waiting.. so my husband goes to car and low and behold there sat our car with the keys left in it unlocked!

Very rarely do I give a poor review. This is one of those occasions. The food selection was mediocre at best. While the service was OK, we complained that the water tasted funny and suggested that the waitress taste it herself. She never bothered to get back to us with an opinion. I’m sure she never tasted it

But not if the friend had a hearing loss like I do..the noise level made conversation difficult. I was looking forward to the lobster roll that was on your on-line menu--your menu didn't have much that intrigued me (the salmon with bacon was good--as were the fries--though I love sweet potato fries most of all). I'm sure you'll appeal to a younger crowd. The ambiance is great (& do keep the on-line menu honest)....

From the staff to the entree to the dessert to walking the 10 steps to our seats in the Theatre, this was a wonderful dining experience! My only MINOR critique is that is was very chilly in the restaurant. Now, we were sitting at a window table. Near the water. On an evening in January. So there's that. hahaha

Lovely staff and service, very efficient, helpful and kind. Amber was very knowledgeable of the menu and offered some nice suggestions (try the pork!). The band playing was a nice touch, but the feel and ambiance of the restaurant was lacking something. The food was good, but kind of generic in flavor and creativity. Overall this was a very good experience, and I would give it another try (maybe in the spring/summer when the patio is open). I would imagine the view/water would make up for this first time experience.

We found the experience better than we were expecting, as we had never been here before. Food was very good, and service attentive. Ambiance was not what we were expecting for a pub/grill (more industrial feeling), although we really liked the vibe. Our only complaint is that we found the noise level to be excessive. Another plus, it is extremely convenient if you are going to the Bucks County Playhouse.
We would definitely visit again.

Convenient restaurant located within the Bucks County Playhouse complex. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Nice views of the Delaware River. We ordered a specialty cocktail which was creative and delicious. We had the charcuterie to start which had a very nice cheese and meat selection and the gruyere burger which came with fries and coleslaw, also very good. However, we were very disappointed that they were out of the selection we wanted, their signature Lobster Mac n Cheese, at 3:30pm on a holiday weekend!

We expected a bit more out of this place.

The food was very average, and some of the options didn’t make a whole lot of sense (lots of corn and tomato dishes featured in the middle of winter). Our server seemed distracted, never came back to check on us, and never asked how I wanted my burger done (ended up with something well done).

Seems like a good spot for a drink in the summer, but this is not going to be a destination or centerpiece of a night out.

This restaurant has so much potential but they just can’t seem to get it right. There wasn’t much of a crowd so the lack of service was not due to being busy. We ordered a charcuterie board to start. It was decent sized but for the price it was lacking variety and quality items. There were 2 types of cheese, one of which had virtually no flavor at all. The second cheese was good. Lots of pickle and a couple slices of meat. Not much else.
My wife ordered the lobster bisque. It was all bisque with not a single piece of lobster.
I had a mushroom and gruyere cheese burger. The meat was not seasoned and the burger itself was just lacking flavor.
This was our second time here and unfortunately we will likely not be going back. Too bad because the river view is nice and proximity to the Playhouse is nice.

Nice place but waitress was not very pleasant, all business not pampering. Did what was necessary to complete our transaction but not very welcoming. Never asked, “Is this your first time here?” Got a glass of water but no return to attempt a refill. Also only left one drink menu at a table for 6. Might want to figure a better way to have chairs slide better; very difficult to pull out or push in.
