Tyler James Pub opens its doors


On Sunday, Phoenixville's newest bar, The Tyler James Pub, opened its doors. Located at 210-212 Bridge Street (formerly occupied by Jester's Sports Bar), Tyler James offers 12 beers on tap as well as a full menu of pub fare. The pub has numerous TVs for sports viewing as well as a pool table, electronic dart boards, arcade games and a shuffleboard table.

Good luck to Steve Blair and his staff. Hopefully the reviews will be a bit more positive than the early ones another local establishment has garnered.

Well, this place can't possibly be worse than Jester's, can it? That place was terrible.

Looks like a good place to go! I just wish they would eliminate smoking all together. One of the problems with Jester's was you walked in and immediately transformed into a human cigarette.

Anyway, good luck to Tyler James Pub!

My BF and I went on Sat for a late lunch. Overall we were quite pleased. The menu is mostly pub sandwiches - which suited us. We each had a sandwich (quite large) served hot and with a generous portion of french fries. Two sandwiches, a few draft beers and soda cost about $30. The front of the restaurant was remodeled and brighter with a new tile floor.
They added a good selection of TVs. The back part was still dark and did not seemed changed since Jesters. It will be good to see what future remodeling brings as well as the upstairs banquet room. The bartender mentioned the plan for upstairs was a nightclub - we hope they have a selection of live music that appeals to all age groups. Live Blues or Jazz be great IMHO. We wish them luck...they could have a winner if they sustain the good food and service.

The O.P.S were the reason Phoenixville was a disaster area for so long. Time for some new ideas....If you want to smoke in a seedy, unwelcoming bar move to Norristown. Face it times are a-changing my friend.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
