You'll love both the food and atmosphere at this quaint, early-American tavern. Our food was hot and delicious, and the service was top-notch. I would give this 5 stars, for sure! Check out some of the artwork and prints in the tavern, too.

Middle of the road bar food and atmosphere. Very casual place, friendly staff, decent list of specialty beers. Not a place for a special evening, but fine for a casual meal.

Located just outside Valley Forge National Historical Park, Black Powder Tavern combines local flavors 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. Weeknights feature happy hour from 5-7PM, with a reprise happy hour on Thursday - Saturday from 9-10PM. Brunch is offered Sundays from 10:30AM-2PM, and the big game is always on. Beer enthusiasts 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. 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. Whether you stop in for lunch, dinner, happy hour or Sunday brunch, there’s something to satisfy your hunger, and your taste buds.
