Finally got around to visit Isaac Newton in Newtown, PA. I live in Horsham, so it was about a 1/2 hour ride to get there. We got there around 3:30 PM and there were many tables open. We were seated promptly and given a decent bread basket. There is Olive Oil on the table for dipping. The list of beers in this place is overwhelming, especially for a guy who likes the basic brews, Bud, Coors etc. I asked my server, who was bit gruff, which Belgian Beer he suggested and he chose a Dragon Ale, something like that, for me. It was brought out in a small cup, not your traditional beer mug or glass. The beer was very tasty but had I known it was $6.50 for what I considered a small glass, I would have stuck to my basic beer selections. One would have thought I was at a Phillies Game for this price.
I ordered the Mussels appetizer, my wife, the vegetarian burger. I also had a side of fries and what looked to be a cup of mayo for dipping. The dip was good, but the fires were spicy, not my favorite fry style. It seems to be a popular recipe to spice up french fries anywhere I go, anymore. The mussels were fine but not worth the drive to Newtown. I can get as good closer by for less. My wife's burger looked like a typical Boca Veggie Burger you can get from your local supermarket frozen food section. Our favorite experience was when the waiter began sweeping the rugs close to where we were dining. I was surprised he didn't ask us to life our feet.
The total bill for two was $37.00. Not horrible considering, but certainly not worth the drive nor the $6.50 beer. Now if only Mike's Bar and Grille in Warminster would start serving mussels, I'd never go anywhere else.
