Loved their impossible burger with sweet potato fries! The ambience with great beer brewing vats and a long thoughtfully kit bar, the place invites you in for a welcoming.
I found the service tip top too. Plenty of smiles and quick effective serves keep all happy.

What a find on our way home to ...
What a find on our way home to NJ after a camping trip in Pottsville!! We were passing through looking for a restaurant that was open on a Monday in PA, who knew that would be such a challenge! I came across Kutztown Tavern on Yelp so we turned off the highway and went to check it out. I didn't know it was a brewery as well. It had a ... read more

Visited here with friends on two occasions in the past 6 months. Had a Portabella burger first time, Beef hamburger the second. Both burgers were good, but GREASY! Portions were HUGE. I would have preferred a somewhat smaller burger and smaller fry portions. At least...More ... read more

Good food
The food was good but a bit pricey for what you get. Service was quite and just ok. Very busy place hard to get your waitress to stop. But she was friendly.

It was okay
Went here on a Tuesday afternoon for lunch. We got here around 1:30 and they weren’t real busy. Our waitress was friendly and took our drink orders. First thing I noticed was that none of the sandwiches come with French Fries just chips. If you...More ... read more

Fun little college town brewery frequented bý locals
The Kutztown Tavern has been a staple in this college town for close to two decades. It is a roomy restaurant with a large bar and daily specials. The beer is very good, and there is a relatively wide variety, plus a seasonal brew. I...More ... read more

Hit the spot
First time here. Turkey panini hit the spot. Young staff but did fine. Also had a beer flight. Chocolate desert was tasty and feeds 3-4.

Just ok
Clean and fresh, with a wide variety of menu items. But not great service. They forgot the appetizer we ordered. Had to ask twice to get our flight of beers. Won't go out of our way to go there again....

Went here for a late night sandwich with my wife.  Nice atmosphere.  Sat at the bar.  Staff was friendly.  Food was good - had the French Steak sandwich, wife had the pulled pork.  Great sweet potato fries.  Beer selection was good.  Their draft IPA was fine.  Recommend.

BACON CHEESEBURGER MEATLOAF! Beef and pork meatloaf with bacon, cheese and onion straws on top. It was VERY good and the onion straws balanced out the flavors perfectly. Had a side of tasteful garlic mashed potatoes and some well cooked broccoli. Nice industrial atmosphere. Will go back to try some other dishes.
Jamie I. via - Sep 2, 2019
Normally a 4, but tonight the service was mediocre. Wings were broken, like from the bottom of a bag. Kids meals come with a side, but apparently this excludes kids pasta.

Been there several times oner the last several year.  It's ok, nothing to rave about food wise.  They need a electrician to check there lighting.  The flashing table light are a distraction to the dining experience.

Been here a couple of times now and this place is just fantastic. So many different options and everyone in my family always enjoys their meal.

Disappointing, used to be better, interesting menu but average tavern fare, average execution.
It gives me no pleasure to write a less than complimentary review. Sometimes tavern fare is creative and well executed - and sometimes it isn't. Kutztown Tavern is in the latter group. First a few positive notes: One, my server (I believe her name was...More ... read more

I decided to give the Kutztown Tavern a second chance after a bad first experience years ago. My recent visit was the exact opposite of my first visit.

Great seating and dining room.  Semi-upscale in a classic Pennsylvania brick building.  Sofas (!) and big window view of downtown Kutztown.  Really nice college restaurant for students and families.  Probably pretty hopping at night, I would imagine.

We visited on a Tuesday night. It wasn't crowded at all. Only 3 other tables in the entire place were filled. Service was quick and friendly. It was burger night which you get 50% off of a 2nd burger. Food was really good and they do give you quite a bit. It's definitely worth trying.
