My friends and I went for "Happy Hour", it was good. We had wine and appetizers...Chips and Hummus were good size portions. Service was a little slow, but waiter was very friendly. Live music was nice...I would go again.

A biography of author Dorothy Parker, who, among other literati, lived for a while in Buck County, led us to the charming rustic Water Wheel. While undoubtedly Parker & friends didn't meet at the WW for the food, these days it sure is creative &...More
