Description: Located just outside Valley Forge National Historical Park, Black Powder Tavern combines local flavors (edible AND sip-able) with American history in a pub-like setting. Warm woods and just-dim-enough lighting add to the tavern feel, enhanced by a reclaimed sawn oak bar with 12-cushioned stools (plus 6 high-tops), materials that are echoed in the dining room and in the flooring. Weeknights feature happy hour from 5-7PM, with a reprise happy hour on Thurs., Fri., and Sat. from 9-10PM. On Sundays, a prix fixe brunch is offered from 10:30AM-2PM, and the big game is always on.The menu features a variety of small and entree-sized plates, and highlights the flavors, ingredients and culinary trends Philadelphia has become known for—and that pair well with our extensive craft beer offerings. If you’re looking for a new favorite burger, you’ve come to the right place; our veal and chicken versions are hearty and flavorful, as is our pork sandwich. You’ll also find several salads and sharable items such as deviled eggs with smoked trout, pork and chicken wings, polenta fries, calamari and more; plus a fresh fish of the day (and of course fish ’n’ chips, cedar plank salmon and chicken marsala. Whether you stop in for lunch, dinner, happy hour or Sunday brunch, there’s something to satisfy your hunger, and your taste buds.Beer enthusiasts should take note: there are 24 brews on tap and 39 bottles. The selection is tweaked regularly, so if you’re looking for something new and special (or old and admired), this is the place to come. There’s plenty to satiate non-drinkers as well, including milkshakes made with Franklin Fountain ice cream—for an added historical touch, of course.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Black Powder Tavern. I was staying at a hotel not too far away and decided to get out. The building is very nice, just off 202 and easy to get to. There is ample parking right outside. The restaurant has a dining area slightly separated from a bar area with high tops and bar stools. The bar area maintains a theme of wood and leather. There is also a function room and a small courtyard for outside dining. The bar area also has 2 TVs to catch your favorite sports. The menu offers a good selection of American food. I chose the planked Salmon and was not disappointed. There is a good selection of draft beer and a large selection of craft beers, mainly IPAs. They also have a fully stocked bar for any other choices that you may have. Service was very good.
This is just a great restaurant.

This tavern offers a wide selection of draft beers & ales, the selection of which periodically changes. The bar area features a combination of booths and bistro tables. There is also a dining room with booths and standard tables. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The menu features standard pub fare and some specialties, such as goat cheese fries.

Black Powder Tavern provides a casual, vibrant atmosphere and delicious food. Over the building's recent career, the restaurant has had various names but at least one staff member has been there for over 20 years. Always a pleasure to see.

I typically eat here for lunch during the weekday. I have always had a good experience here. I really like the atmosphere and the food is really good. Even during work luncheons, the service and food has always been good. The outside area is nice for dining. My only negative would be around the holidays. It can get very crowded and parking can be tough. However, they have valet services. One of my favorites for a work lunch.

Our Church Group of 35 people enjoyed a wonderful dinner with excellent catering services. The staff was very helpful selecting a limited menu which allowed us to have prompt service and the food was delicious. The grilled salmon was a favorite!
