My husband and I live in upper bucks county, surrounded by amazing award winning restaurants. Instead of eating close to home Saturday night, we thought we'd find a place close to the Tower Theater as we had tickets to the 8PM show. I found this restaurant on line and looking at the menu, it was a great selection and reasonable prices. They brag on the website about it being the perfect place to eat before or after a show but I beg to differ. I called to find out exactly where they were, and since they did not take reservations, I also asked what time they recommended we arrive to make the 8pm show and they suggested closer to 6 than 7, so we did. We fought the city traffic to the theater and found our way to the restaurant about 6:15 there were plenty of tables so we hit the timing just right and were seated right away. When we sat down we were handed paper menus that had a picture of the tower theater on the front. Inside the selection was nothing more than burgers and cheesesteaks, far from the stuffed flounder and veal cutlet we had our hearts set on from looking at their on line menu. Then, rubbing salt in the wound, the prices were jacked up a few dollars an item! The $1.95 fries were 3.95 on this "theater" menu. When I asked if we could order off the regular menu, I was told no that they only use this "limited" menu on show nights so the kitchen can move food faster. We were disappointed to say the least - if we wanted greasy bar food we could have stopped a million other places on the way here but now had no other choice but to sit and gag down overpriced cheesesteaks and soggy chips. NO WHERE on their website does it even elude to the fact that they have limited menu or a totally different menu on concert nights. While I understand the reasoning behind it, they should WARN people that all of the glorious items shown on their menu is not available on show nights. They should post BOTH menus on their website so people know what they are getting into before going here before a show. If you want to drink - by all means go here before a show, but there are pizza joints up and down the road that would be a better choice if you want dinner.

Some people like a dark, bar-like atmosphere, but at lunchtime, it seems a little to dark. The food is decent but there is not much to choose from. The sandwiched and burgers come with sides of chips, so order fries if you prefer. Overall, a nice hang out for business lunches.
