Fine dining and a charming bistro atmosphere await you in this totally refurbished 19th century roadside inn
Saturday night for dinner. Reservations required, especially on the weekend. Menu needs to be updated on the website as there are some differences. It is varied with a good selection and you should be able to find something to your liking. Food preparation and presentation was very good. Large wine list and selection by the glass.
Seated promptly and a server was there quickly. Could have had a little more attention during the meal. Place was packed and the noise level was high. We were seated in one of the upstairs dining rooms and the noise reflected off the walls. Made it difficult to have a conversation at our table.
The quality of the food was such that even with those negatives I would go back.

Cute little bistro serving priced right Italian dishes from sandwiches to platters. Food is prepared well and portions are generous (we brought home leftovers). Platters come with salad and garlic knots. Bar is limited. Servers are friendly. There is a deck for outside dining. A cute little train runs around the perimeter of the ceiling. 4 people ate for $80, including 5 drinks.

GEO Requested for Zieglersville, PA
Philly Steak sandwich was large and tasty.My dining companions really enjoyed the mussels.Service was good.
The only unpleasant part of the experience was the inside temperature
since the a/c was broken on a very hot summer day.Nonetheless we
really liked the food quality.Our beers were inadequately chilled reportedly due to the electrical problem.The waitress graciously comped us for the drinks.I thought our meals were fairly priced.

This pub is a real gem. The food is eclectic and delicious, and the menu changes frequently. The actual dining area lacks atmosphere, but a seat at the bar is excellent! The bartenders are incredibly knowledgeable, and you can sample a beer before ordering. Beer goes great with the fried pickle appetizers! The place is mobbed on weekends, so get there early or be prepared for a long wait.

Visited with a bunch of guys from nearby development. Shortly after being seated, orders were taken. I had read their menu online and was aware they features a kielbasa (from Czerw's) sandwich so I knew what I wanted. After most of the others were served and halfway through their lunches, I was told they had no kielbasa and asked if I would want something else. Knowing that, by the time I decided and my lunch was delivered everyone else would be finished, I said no.
Many of the others seemed to enjoy their lunch, but there is absolutely no excuse to make someone wait more than 20 minutes to inform them that they would have to order something else because they had run out of a their selection. They had a big crowd so I guess it didn't pay for them to worry about a single customer. There are too many other good Italian restaurants in the area to give them another shot.

The Bay Pony Inn offers New American and Continental cuisine for casual fine dining, private parties and weddings accommodating up to 125 people. Located at the crossroads of Skippack, Harleysville and Schwenksville the allure of old country romance and new world cuisine provide an unforgettable experience.
We have been here several times over the years including dinner, drinks and brunch.
Last evening we were a party of three for early dinner and enjoyed the value packed prix fixe dinner available before 6:30. The menu here is seasonal and last night they featured soft shell crabs which are a personal favorite. They were sensational. The other entrees were the salmon (very good indeed) and the flat iron steak ( a very generous portion cooked perfectly as requested).
Our server, Linda, was gracious and engaging. She took perfect care of us including bringing a great martini from the bar. The owner actually greeted and sat us and engaged in a very friendly conversation.We asked to sit in the bar area which has about four tables and is our favorite room and he was most obliging. My bride loves the atmosphere of this old style room and always wants to be seated there.
The Bay Pony is not cutting edge and the folks who patronize the restaurant are not looking to win any GQ awards. Like us they know and appreciate a fine restaurant with excellent service, great food and very fair value. Highly recommended.

The Woodside Lodge is located on the back side of Spring Mountain. It was built in the early 1920's and is the last standing Inn among several that catered to that periods travelers who came by train to Schwenksville to escape Philadelphia 's summer heat. Our vision is to restore the Woodside Lodge to the wonderful meeting place that so many travelers and locals remember. Our Menu is Upscale American Comfort Food. We have Soups, Salads, Starters, Light Fare (Sandwiches), and delicious Entrees ranging from 14.99 to $26.00 that include House Salad, Bread Basket, Chef's Choice of Vegetable and Choice of Buttermilk Whipped Potatoes or Chef Michael's Famous Vermont Cheddar Stuffed Potato Cake!
We had a buffet lunch after a family event. I can not say anything about eating here as a normal restaurant.
The service was excellent. The servers were always around and friendly.
The food was good. We had two entrees. People like them.
My relatives who had lived in Schwenksville some time ago were impressed by how well the building has been updated. It keeps its old charm though.
They have a bar and then a large room for meals.

I love Java's. The owners are so lovely and always greet you with a huge smile. The food is amazing. Try the chicken pesto panini- my favorite. They are open until 2 Sunday, Monday, Friday and Saturday. It's SO NICE that on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday they're open until 7! You can get a take-out dinner.
They have a nice area outside if you want - and plenty of inside seating including comfy couch if you want. They have free wifi.
Muffins, cookies- yum yum! They also make some lower fat options.
