In all fairness, I was just recently here for drinks and a light appetizer, and also a bit of curiosity. After having been closed for quite a while, I wanted to see what had been done to the place. Visually, I think they did a really nice job with the renovations. The appetizer I had was fine, but pretty standard... More

On a Friday night, we were seated right away and give menus. The menus had good selections and a good drink selection. Had time to read the entire menu while people were seated around us. They got waters and drinks while we sat unattended. After 20 min of no one speaking to us, or even coming close enough to ask... More

We stopped here Saturday night for dinner, table for 7. We were seated downstairs which was fine, but it was way too loud in there, we could barely converse with each other. The food was ok, it tasted great but some of us had over cooked meals. The portions were pretty small too. The valet parking was totally unnecessary and... More

I have been a patron here throughout several ownerships and I live locally. I visited for the first time last Friday night after the recent renovation to a packed house and no choice but to valet park (not a fan of this for just HH). The noise level was really off-the-charts and I could barely hear the music (a shame... More

(yes I know the owners - full disclosure) In my travels and decades of reviews of course there are going to be "haters" and lovers......as this establishment gets its legs I have every confidence it will take flight. and soar!!!!!!

We live locally to The Water Wheel, and were very excited to see it re-open under new owners. The atmosphere is great but the menu is mediocre at best. There's nothing new about quesadillas, cheese steak and French Onion Soup. We would love to see something more exciting.

Open again and did a nice job of renovation. The place is modern but still kept with an old bucks county feel. Thanks for that. The food I had was good. A limited menu yet but will expand as time goes on I was told. Will go back soon to try there Crab Mac & Cheese.

Glad to see a great local spot reopened. They have two big bars, one upstairs and one downstairs and offer many beers on tap and bottles as well as a full bar. Happy hour specials and st paddys day specials were featured too. This was our second time there and the staff is friendly. We had bar food this time... More

We made reservations and even the person who took our reservation was rude. Showed up to this newly renovated new ownership restaurant to valet (free) parking, which we know was a scam/fake option to make the restaurant look extremely busy/popular. We were asked by one of the attendents if we had reservations, he acted concerned if we didn't because of... More
