Interesting historical significance regarding the American Revolution! The food is very good. Most of my group especially loves the pot pie!

We had a wonderful evening. The beer menu had more than 20 beers on draught from local brewers. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We had a great time and will be back again.

The food is good, and not expensive. I like the atmosphere - cozy and informal. They have good burgers and other things similar to that and then some higher priced entrees, The service was good. No complaints.

For $21 this lavish brunch buffet, served in silver chafing dishes, including a generous spicy Bloody Mary & coffee, seems too good to be true: from custom-made omelets & fluffy scrambled eggs, pork roast, sausages, potatoes, fish sticks, pasta, bowls of shrimp & smoked salmon...More

Our server was friendly and helpful and knew the menu. The portions were large (my husband said "hey, this is America!") but the food was tasty and drinks good.

food was very solid though slow and inattentive service detracted from the overall experience. Very cool that this was a place where Washington and LaFayette drank together.

Good salads and veggie sides; companions have enjoyed burgers and soups. Nice selection of beers and cocktails; helpful servers. Generally quick service--sometimes quiet later in the evening.

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.

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.
