This is best restaurant in exton without a doubt. Chef is amazingly creative. Refreshing change from the mediocrity of typical exton dining

I stopped in for lunch between appointments. Lauren the bartender was amazing. She introduced me to Levante Peach Bellini sparking seltzer which is great! I had the fried deviled eggs which are a total game changer! Over all great experience I will definitely be back sooner than later.

Took the family in for brunch and the food was really wonderful. I can’t say enough good things about the food! Service was good, but when things got a little busy, our server was distracted. I think having another server or two in the dining room would have helped. A $24 charge for food we didn’t order appeared on our bill. It was quickly fixed with apologies, and we will absolutely go back for a meal soon.

Our waitress Karen was fantastic. Held a 60th birthday party and she took great care of everyone. She is why I will be back soon, even with the falling picture. Thank you!!!!

Never had a bad experience here until today. We ordered 3 bison burgers, and none of the had egg. The waitress did not review the specials with us for brunch... we kept seeing eggs Benedict after we ordered and as we were leaving, another waitress was going over specials. Not happy about that.

Everything was terrific except for service. Food was terrific; great selection of beers. But service/waitress was almost nonexistent. It’s a shame because we all really enjoyed our meals. It was like pulling teeth to get a drink. She also didn’t check on how our meals were. We needed to keep calling her over to our table. I was only drinking water and unless I asked, she didn’t refill my glass. It became a joke at our table.

Food was outstanding - especially items from the special fall menu! Service unfortunately was really, really bad. Our waitress had trouble figuring out to split the bill, after several attempts believe the manager stepped in to assist.

The TV was blaring- it is hard to hear yourself speak, and our cheese curds were most definitely leftover and barely reheated. This place has unfortunately gone downhill.

We had a surprise 60th birthday for my Mom. Justin (Manager) was super helpful in every possible way. We were able to sit in their “Farmer’s Market” room for a private experience although it is normally open to all visitors. He also helped us with the birthday cake I brought from an outside caterer. Special shout out to our server, Karen, who was the absolute BEST. She always checked on our drinks, was knowledgeable about the menu and just all around great personality. Justin and Karen if you read this - thank you again for such a great time. I’ll be back (without confetti) soon!!!

Overall it was a nice evening for our party. Food was just ok. A bit disappointing considering the quality that was advertised. I had tuna poke bowl. Tuna seemed a bit off compared to other places, so that was disappointing. I realize that it is a beer garden kind of place, but considering location and surrounding restaurants, I think the plastic cups lower the overall vibe of the place. Small details, and not enough to keep us from returning, but enough to keep us from giving a rave review.

I’d been looking at this place on OpenTable and thought to give it a shot as opposed to our tried and true local dinner spot. Honestly, I can’t tell if it was a hit or a miss. The biggest plus was their poutine. It’s the BEST poutine I’ve gotten outside of Canada. However, the service was really lacking, (when it wasn’t really that busy) and 2 out of 3 people in my party didn’t like their entrees. The waitress did take one entree off of our bill, which was awesome of her, but with the overall experience... I’ll just take the poutine to go next time.

Came here for dinner during my sister’s bachelorette party. Everything was superb; drinks, food, etc. the only negative was that we were sat outside directly next to the live performer and his amp, so the noise was rather bothersome. But, the weather couldn’t have been nicer so I think we all preferred being outside anyway.

Very lively and noisy bodega. The food was pretty average except for the lamb bolognese which I found over the top fantastic. Complex flavors pasta cooked just right. I will go back just for this.

Suburban has a great vibe but the day we went it was extremely hot so that made it unfortunately a bit uncomfortable since the AC was not working and there were no fans. The food was good but a bit over priced for a Saturday lunch. Staff was accommodating and nice. Will have to try back on a cold fall day..

Previously felt it “jumped the shark” but maybe that’s just late night. Wife wanted to go again for her birthday. Food was really good. Beverage choices good. Loud on the bar side and outdoor: we didn’t use the other side but I remember that being quieter. Service started good but faded as got busier.
