The Hattery Stove & Still Ratings and Reviews

Very disappointing. Stopped in for cocktails one night and thought the menu sounded good. Came back for brunch which was very nice. Brought the family in for dinner. The menu sounded amazing. Everything was disappointing. Overcooked short ribs. Dumplings that were not dumplings but rather deep fried balls filled with completely dried out cheese. The homemade chips were good, but the "fondue" was poured all over them instead of on the side. Would return for drinks with friends or brunch (eggs were good), but never lunch or dinner.

Hostess is unfriendly. Pretends when she can't find your reservation that there is no room for you. It was my third visit in two weeks. How's that for crappy customer service. Friendly waitress but spotty service.

Table was ready as soon as we arrived. Our waitress was excellent, she was more than happy to help with menu and drink recommendations (we liked both of her suggestions!) Loved the crab and strawberry salad. The décor is fun and unique. I recently relocated to D-Town, I will make the Hattery a favorite place to dine!

I had been to the Hattery before and went back on a date. It was so noisy the food was cold and took an extremely long time to come to our table. Our table was right next to the bar and it was very congested at the bar. Overall we were very dissatisfied with our dinner there.
We went on a Tuesday night with work colleagues. Not too noisy which was good. I didn't know the downstairs was closed Monday and Tuesday and was disappointed as my out if town guests would have really enjoyed it. All dishes were good but upstairs just doesn't have the same vibe as downstairs. All in all , would go again
Perfect for Date night and Foodies.
Came here for a post Valentines day dinner. The menu was extremely appetizing. The lamb lollipops were perfectly cooked and seasoned and the deviled eggs had the perfect kick and pick me up with the mustard. The chicken and the egg was beautifully presented and tasted just as amazing as it looked. The service was exception and very personalized. Cant wait to be back.
Just a little hiccup
It was fairly dead inside but it took about 15 mins for a waitstaff to come to our table since there was a discrepancy about who was supposed to be helping us. We just sort of sat there for a while.
Otherwise the food was darn good and the date went well.
After hearing & reading mixed reviews, we were pleasantly surprised by our food and service. Leg of Lamb and Crabcakes were both very good. Caesar salad was very large and my husband raved about the chicken wings. Service was very adequate and the décor is outstanding and unique. The restaurant was a little loud, especially the downstairs, but it didn't really bother us. Overall, we would definitely go back again for dinner or a late night drink stop!
Good not great
We sat at a small table very close to the bar. The table felt crowded and being so close to the bar made it hard to hear each other. The servers seemed to have miscommunications with each other often, but they were friendly to the customers. The food was not as good as expected. The steak and potatoes were too chewy. But if you are going for just a beer and a burger it might be great.

I'll start by saying the ambiance was cozy, yet hip and the service was outstanding. The booze list is respectable. The food, however, left a lot to be desired. The deviled eggs were...inoffensive, but nothing special. My husband had the steak and "potatoes" which is steak and gnocchi. The steak was cooked perfectly, but the texture of the gnocchi was rubbery. I had the chicken pot pie and was severely disappointed. The texture of the filling was as if someone put it in a blender on low, and the crust was bleh.
There are better places in Doylestown.
Very well done!
We joined our friends for a snow dinner before the great Blizzard of 2016. The cellar is a wonderful venue and the food diverse. The service was excellent and I would recommend this restaurant for anyone dining in Doylestown. We enjoyed the old Doylestown Inn restaurant 18 years ago and this is certainly a refreshing way to bring back fine dining and a vibrant bar scene to the area.
