Water Wheel Tavern is an historic Bucks County landmark originally built in 1714 by John Dyer, an English Quaker. It existed for centuries as a water wheel driven grist mill, and later hosted both a post office and a general store. The mill was transformed into an inn and tavern with the repeal of prohibition in 1933.

The warm bread served in a terra cotta pot with maple butter was a wonderful prelude to an exceptionally delicious meal! Mushroom soup, Chipotle Pork Tenderloin and Seared Sea Scallops hit all the right notes. Apple Crisp Cheesecake was a delightful finale to our culinary adventure.

- HMHarryMPhiladelphia / New Jersey Suburbs •2 reviews4.0Dined on Nov 24, 2023We came to dinner on a busy Friday night at 6:00 p.m. everything started off okay but by 7:00 the waiter who was also the bartender stop paying attention to us completely. We waited for about 45 minutes for the check. Normally I would have asked for it but clearly they were so overwhelmed with bartending a bar that was about four people deep that I felt guilty. The food was very good. But probably a better place for a Friday night for drinks than for dinner.More infoMaxwell's on MainPrice: Moderate• American• Doylestown•4.4
