We appreciated the wide ranging menu; excellent food; attentive, upbeat service; and lengthy list of craft beers, including many on tap.

I had a burger, she has hummus. Saturday night and the place was virtually empty by 8:15 PM, maybe it recovered after we left at 9? The burger was good and nicely presented, the humus was OK. Dec...Read More

Food was good, service minimal. Not enough parking so you are forced to leave your keys with young valets. Skip this place if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing dinner. A very noisy, yelling cro...Read More

A place that always comes to mind when friends are getting together. Great yummy food and good choice of wine. The noise level can be a little loud but a booth helps dull it out a bit. Parking ca...Read More

This was an excellent restaurant for our post Valley Forge historical tour. Good food, good ambiance and nearby. Most importantly, it was a historical location after visiting a historical landmark.

Food was good. Atmosphere was a cool looking tavern. Service from the kitchen was very slow. Our waiter would disappear for 15 minutes at a time and we couldn't find him. We would go back hoping th...Read More

  • Description:

    Since 1746, the building that houses this tavern has played a part in the establishment of our nation; first as a respite for stagecoach travelers expanding westward and later as a covert rendezvous point for George Washington, Marquis de Lafayette, and other leaders of the American revolution.

    It is believed that during the infamous winter of 1777–1778 at Valley Forge, a major figure in the Continental Army, master military mind Friedrich Von Steuben, designated the tavern as a secret black powder munitions stash for Continental Army couriers. All the while, the tavern continued to provide food, shelter and cheer to the hungry, weary soldiers fighting for their independence.

    Today, we honor our historic tavern’s tradition with a mission to raise the spirits of our guests. We invite you to experience the small and large plates, craft beers and revolutionary hospitality that is Black Powder Tavern.
