The Pour House
124 Haddon Avenue
Hours: Daily, 11:30 am–2 am
Style: A gastro pub that puts a twist on bar staples and features the best beer menu in the region.
Don’t Miss: The Pour House nachos ($7.99) aren’t really nachos. They’re thick potato chips topped with an avocado relish and tomato salsa. The combination creates a salty-sweet flavor instead of just the fat and salt you’ll usually find in bar nachos—and the chips don’t get soggy. We like the grilled three cheese sandwich ($6.49), which tops fontina, Jarlsberg, and havarti cheeses with caramelized onions to created a textured mix of flavors instead of a gooey cheese mess. The Southwest chicken sandwich ($7.99) has an added kick of salsa and Vermont white cheddar, though the salsa, like on the nachos, is sweet instead of salty to give an old classic a new twist. If you’re an oyster fan, check out the raw bar—we’re a fan of the Cape May salts (market price).
Heads Up: While the dinner crowd is subdued, the Pour House can become rambunctious after 9 pm. They often have live music and a bar crowd that follows.
The Scoop: The Pour House, formerly known as Dock Hoppers, is the latest stab at a viable bar/restaurant on the stretch of Haddon Avenue between dry Haddonfield and Collingswood. The biggest change from Dock Hoppers is that they hope to become a craft-beer bar—they have nearly 100 kinds—which the area sorely needs.Click here to leave a comment
