Looking for the perfect cozy Main Line spot to enjoy an outstanding array of whiskey, craft cocktails, and inventive pub fare? Look no further than Ripplewood Whiskey & Craft in Ardmore, PA! I realized I was long overdue for a trip to this suburban gem, which recently celebrated its 5th year (I started going about 4 years ago and instantly fell in love). For this most recent trip, I met up with a good friend of mine who had never been there before (spoiler alert: he loved it!).
The standout star of the menu is the legendary burger, which distinguishes itself from others by topping the beef with a delectable combo of gouda and Lebanon bologna. I chose to indulge in it on my recent visit, and as always, it was phenomenal! My friend enjoyed short ribs, which were tender and flavorful. I enjoyed my usual cocktail pick, the Old Fashioned, which was expertly made for me by one of Ripplewood's knowledgeable bartenders. With a diverse selection of the finest spirits, you can't go wrong with any of their cocktails.
In addition to the downstairs bar, Ripplewood has an upstairs with another bar, and also a beautiful patio. They are located at 29 E Lancaster Ave in Ardmore. Check them out at ripplewoodbar.com !
