Went here for drinks with a few friends on a Saturday night. I was the designated driver so I wasn't going to order anything. I was told by the bartender in order to be on the premises I had to be a "paying" customer, so I had to order something. She said this was the law according the LCB, even for a designated driver. I went home and read every PA liquor code and there was nothing. Needless to say I won't be returning.

I really like Brady's a lot. It's a nice, cozy place to go for drinks/dinner. My husband and I went w/a group of friends to see Duane Slaymaker there and had a really good time. They have a good variety of drinks and a nice menu. They even serve a lighter menu up until 1:30am on the weekends. It's one of our favorite places to eat.

I think it's funny (law or not) how people don't want to return to a place because of something they were told. If it's a rule or the law it's whatever the staff says. So purchase a soda or water, it's not like they said you had to purchase alcohol.

Really? I never knew that. Of course, I always bought at least a soda when I went out and then water thereafter. IF I was the DD.

We like this place very much. Very good food and beverages, including a full bar. Service always prompt and friendly. Comfy atmosphere. Do not hesitate to patronize.

I have been there numerous time and always had good food, drinks and service. I also am not a strictly weekend or weekday customer.

I went last night for drinks on the invitation of friends. I am glad I didn't order food! I tasted the bruschetta, who melts cheese on bruschetta? Was terrible! Maybe the people of New Holland like this but from someone who loves good food, this was a sin! 1st drink was ok but second was so weak I only tasted water. When I asked for it to be fixed she said only if I get a second shot.. So my drink ended up costing $9.50 I asked the owner if this is normal and she was the most rude owner I have spoken to in a while. So to sum up my experience, bad food, weak and over priced drinks and owners who don't know their place.. This is in New Holland, population under 6,000. A restaurant with about 20 tables is small fish, no reason for the owners to think they are big time and can get away with being rude. Not that I will ever be back but I will share this everywhere I can leave a review!
