A former textile factory, the restaurant and brewery is now a staple of Manayunk’s Main Street. In addition to their classic menu offerings, there is also a sushi bar, stone pizza oven, and a rotisserie.
From burgers to crab cakes to raw tuna, there is something for every taste and budget on the extensive menu. Sushi fiends be warned; there is no sushi on Sunday or Monday. Several different bars offer a large selection of beer, wine, and drinks, including the popular in-house brews.
With one of the nicest and largest al fresco dining areas in the city, be sure to sit on the back deck overlooking the Schuylkill River if you visit when the weather is nice.
There are often events and live entertainment, including a live jazz brunch on Sundays, 10:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m.
