When we moved to Newtown late last year we were excited by what seemed like the endless restaurant options not only in Newtown but in the surrounding areas. While we've found a number of restaurants we really like, we have not been able to find a decent bar/pub. We would love to find a go-to spot for a burger and some beers, somewhere to go and unwind after a long day. Granted we haven't tried every option there is, but after the third and fourth place we're getting a little discouraged.
So far we've tried Pineville Tavern (I didn't like the burger and the parking lot is always packed with nowhere else to park if it's full), Isaac Newton's in Newtown (the burger had no flavor, although the fries were very good), Porterhouse Pub in Lahaska (the burger was very tasty but the fries were awful and the service was lousy) and a place in a strip mall near Pier One off Eagle Road in Newtown where the burger was decent, the fries lousy (what is up with those "breaded" fries they serve everywhere??) and the service appalling.
Does anyone have any suggestions? At this point we're feeling like our only option is Red Robin (which we love but it has the wrong atmosphere for relaxing, what with the screaming kids).
