Yay Phoenixville!

Am I the only one who isn't a fan of Molly Maguire's? It's nice inside and the drinks are good, but the food leaves a lot to be desired.

Molly's rules!

mollys is just ok. it's better than what we used to have. I prefer Ryan, especially for the price.

Irish food really isn't that good anyway so most of these irish pubs in the US are just replicating that type of food.

I have to agree that I like Molly's atmosphere, but the food is not up to par. Gritty potato leek soup...and the Dublin shrimp was just just boild shrimp and white rice in garlic water. Been to a Molly's in Jim Thorpe, much better.

I have not had 1 dish at PJ's that I don't like. I think their Meatloaf Napoleon is tops!! Since they too serve Smithwick's, I tend to go to PJ's a lot more.

I'm hoping the competition from PJ's, 101, and Marley's forces their hand to step it up...

I stopped into Hipster Home the other day and that store is pretty cool. I didn't expect a store like that to be in Phoenixville. I hope their doing okay. Does anyone know if they do good here?

Pretty confident that Hipster is doing an exceptional business.. In one year they moved to a building 3 times the size as where they started.. and since they have been in town have held the Best of Philly title.

Is Hipster a chain? I thought I saw them somewhere else. Who owns it?

Hipster Home is not a chain. It is owned by 2 folks that live in Phoenixville.
