The Hattery Stove & Still Ratings and Reviews
We came in to celebrate 3 birthdays. Initially we weren't happy with the table with it being right next to the bar. My grandmom is 90 and had a hard time being included in conversation due to the seating. The staff was supper attentive and got us another table as quickly as possible. It was perfect! The service was great and attentive and the food was awesome! I will definitely be back here again soon. Awesome job!
Ambiance and service were great! Food was definitely not bad, just a little blah.
Scallop appetizer would've been great but came with cold tomato sauce on plate that didn't work (warm sauce would be much better). Venison dish was ok, but meat was slightly dry and the whole meal really needed more seasoning to make it special. We have been here a few times and always leave with the same feeling "not bad, but not dying to come back". Cocktail menu is good - I think I'd rather come here for happy hour and bar snacks.
I took my sweetheart for Valentine's Day. Set in the rustic Doylestown Hotel, this romantic place is appointed with tasteful, eclectic decor. My Open Table reservation made it easy. We both had the surf & turf, and shared the lamb medallion appetizer. Everything was delicious and prepared perfectly. Service was prompt, and friendly, without being overbearing. The prix fix Valentine's Day menu came with a shared dessert, which amounted to no more than a spoonful for each of us. For $140, I wish the shared dessert portion would have been a bit more ample. Decent Craft beer and wine selection. We are repeat visitors, and will be back again.
5 of us went for dinner on a Friday evening. We reserved our table thru Open Table. We arrived early and our table was ready for us. We had the Chicken Or The Egg, Chipotle Shrimp Tacos, Pork Belly Rueben, French Onion Soups, & Belgian Endive Salad with Steak. The food was fresh & delicious. Highly recommend stopping here. The decor is interesting & eclectic. The noise level can get loud, especially downstairs where the bar is.
Fun atmosphere and great drinks, however after making a reservation a week in advance they tried to offer a table that was not what we requested. after a few minutes they "found" our table (among other open tables). luckily the wait staff and bartenders are awesome. However having ordered a steak dish and a burger both Medium and having them both come out almost well was VERY disappointing. I think unfortunately quality has gone down in food quality since they opened.
This place is still new so I am sure they are getting t he kinks worked out. Not blown away by the Hattery, food was so-so and could not believe that our apps and dinner came out at the same time, that was the deal-breaker for me.
Pros: Decor is fantastic and our server could not of been nicer! Might try in another few months when they get the kinks worked out.
We have not been here in over 18 months for the same reason we will never try it again. Service is average. But the food is just not good! The deviled eggs were atrocious it was completely all mustard we even had the server try one and she completely agreed and took it to the manager for a taste. The shrimp tacos had little baby frozen shrimp in there that were nasty with some kind of sour soggy slaw and a watered down black bean purée which was absolutely inedible. They charge an extra $.40 for lettuce, &.40 tomato, $.40 onion. With an already inflated price of $14 per burger. They charge $3.00 for a half of a loaf of a baguette/butter. It's absolutely gorgeous in there and it's a shame that the food stinks as much as it does. It's a great location and service can always improve it's just a shame that the food is so bad.
We were able to get a table at 7:00p on a Friday night last minute for a party of five and it was completely dead in there because everyone who is local knows that it's terrible food! Still trying to figure out why they are still open as I know they are attached to the Doylestown Inn-- it's just a shame for our sweet little Doylestown that the food is still so bad.
We had a great time for our Christmas Eve dinner at the Hattery. We had a table of 5 and were seated promptly, and had a wonderful table. The food was delicious (black bean soup, mussels in garlic wine sauce and wings for appetizers -- fantastic). For dinner we had stuffed lobster tails and some of us had chicken pot pie. Everything was wonderful, thanks for a great evening.
A local restaurant with a great ambiance. Met friends for Sunday brunch and was seated immediately. Great menu selection and choice of brunch and lunch into early afternoon. Waiter was prompt with service and bringing us drinks. Food was quickly brought to the table. Try the banana beignets. . . . wow, delicious.
Food was INCREDIBLE. The biggest issue we had was that the servers were incredibly unknowledgeable in the "Happy Hour" menu. They have a $5 wings and $5 muscles during happy hour. Be sure to specifically state when you're there that you want the $5 muscles or wings, because when we had asked about the happy hour menu, then ordered the muscles, they gave us the appetizer (regularly priced) portion. So when we were charged $13 I was kind of disappointed. They knocked off $3 of the bill, because they put in the wrong order. I really didn't think it was that big of a deal considering I was paying over $100 for a two person meal.
The food itself was OUTSTANDING. I will absolutely be going back for pickup.
Great, friendly staff / service. Very nice neighborhood place where you can get a great meal of bar food. Good mix of food without going over the top. Great place to stop in for a drink and/or a snack.
This occasion was in support of a fund raiser where they let you pay for a burger or ribs meal and all money went to support a 13 year old girl battling cancer.
Family get together of four for brunch. More lunch options then breakfast. Service was good but a little slow. We ordered eggs benedict, smoked salmon platter, garden omelet and eggs and bacon. Omelet was very tasty and cooked to my order 1/2 whites, 1/2 regular eggs. Smoked salmon platter was excellent. Home fries were also a surprise, they were tasty. My only complaint was no toast or fruit. We eat with our eyes and these meals were not that appealing. I'd give it another try though.
First time here. Friday nite dinner. Had fish n chips and tilefish entrees. F&C was generous portion and better than most. Tile fish portion could have been larger. They made up for it with lots of rice. Could have used a side vegetable. French onion soup and Arugula salad were both very good. Beer selection was weak. I'd try it again.
Nice ambience and pleasant wait staff. However, though it was only 6:30 they were out of the soup of the day and the replacement soup arrived luke warm. I sent it back and the replacement bowl was not much hotter. My hamburger was good though not exceptional. Noise level was so loud talking to others at my small table was difficult. It was Saturday evening so it might be better during the week.
My friend was running quite late from a medical appt. yet I received attentive, not intrusive, service. I was greeted immediately and served iced tea & wine. Our lunch sandwiches were delicious, creative, and personalized. Food was served quickly and attractively; our waitperson followed up appropriately often, mindful of our desire to chat. She encouraged us to visit the downstairs after we commented on the history of the restaurant and adjacent inn. I would definitely return!!
Had the hot chips and mussels as apps. Loved the chips, the mussels were ok. Jordan, has been our server 2x and been fabulous both times. Interesting to chat with, and always has great recommendations. He suggested the Chicken or the eggs sandwich, I wouldn't have picked it, it was delish!
We eat brunch here regularly with the kids. Terrific atmosphere Very friendly. Good items you don't normally find for breakfast/brunch. They provide offerings that are kid-friendly. They have a kids' lunch menu items but breakfast items not on kids menu. Only gripe is they changed out their coffee and their former coffee was so much better. Dinner is a completely different scene and more elegant/bar and more for adults.
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.
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!
