The Broad Axe Tavern dates back to 1681, long before there were the roads Skippack Pike or Butler Pike in front of it. The tavern was located on an old Indian path where farmers took their grain to one of several mills in the area. Traditionally, many farmers maintained stills for friends, neighbors and passerby. As traffic increased, this hospitality stretched the income of farm families, so some built a small tavern and began to charge for food and a place to stay. The tavern soon became a place for locals to gather and exchange news.

I was visiting from Cleveland, Ohio and needed some good food and when I heard about The Broad Axe Tavern, and its historical background, I thought I would check it out. The decor was very nice and the food was terrific and the waiting staff was courteous and have a great since of humor, I shall come again on my next visit to Philly.
