Oct 31, 2012

The weather was so freakin nice outside, I recently decided to go exploring throughout the Bucks County area (just northeast of Philadelphia), when I came across this really cool looking spot called “Kellen’s Station House”. The building is so neat looking as it stands 3 floors high, with a tropical front patio area and a huge parking lot. You can’t miss this place cause it is located directly across the street from the Septa R3 (Langhorne) train station, hence the name “Kellen’s Station House”.
My small posse of really good friendz, which included Tiffany Martinez, Brittany Dittmar and Ashley Ramiez, all decided to pull in for sum grub, as our stomachs were churning for food and beverages. When you enter “Kellen’s Station House”, you will definitely notice how clean, sharp and organized this establishment is being managed. Turning into the main bar and restaurant areas, I could not miss a large bright and colorful multi refrigerator wall unit filled with over 90 brews in stock. It is like a freakin smorgasbord of highly respected beers and brews.
As we all settled in, I realized that “Kellen’s Station House” just opened its doors on July 19th of 2012. The owner “Rich” took every man’s dream of opening a bar and made it happen with a name he always reserved for a son that he never had, as “Rich” was blessed with 3 amazing daughters. But, the name “Kellen” stayed with him for the past 17 years, so why not name his bar the perfect name of “Kellen’s Station House”. Rich’s vision of a full service tavern with awesome pub food, is now coming to life at 1033 S. Bellevue Avenue in Langhorne, PA.

While searching for a manager to run this outstanding watering hole, “Rich” came across a gentleman by the name of “Bob”, who has a tremendous background in very productive cafes and seductive tasting restaurants. So, the fit was perfect as now “Rich” and “Bob” are working together to take “Kellen’s Station House” to the next level.
The “Kellen’s Station House” has several rooms for all of your drinking, eating and gathering needs, with 6 very spacious areas to enjoy. Including a few very comfortable rooms for dining room, an eye pleasing modern sports bar area, an outside palm tree deck area, not to mention a few private party/catering rooms. I energetically love the hard wood floors, clean sharp seating areas and the wide open entertainment concept. I counted over 20 flat screen televisions showing several different sports venues, over 10 beers on tap and like I mentioned earlier over 90 brews in stock.
Our server (“Nathan”) greeted us with a pleasant smile, handed me our easy to read menus and then proceed to inform my posse of a few signature libations. How can you go wrong with tantalizing beverages like a “Chocolate Martini”, an “Appletini” or even a coffee infused vodka or bourbon cocktail? I ultimately love when an established tavern has a good selection of cocktails and “Kellen’s Station House” is no exception with a fine list of liquid goodies. Our very attractive mixologist for this evening was “Stephanie” and she was holding it down with a full bar of customers.

While reading over the menu, I decided to try a few “Kellen’s Station House” classic selections, like starting out with “Grandma’s Famous Doltana”, it’s a secret family recipe of Italian meats and cheeses stuffed in a homemade dough. I thoroughly enjoyed this start to our meal cause my taste buds were dancing with a perfect blend of Italian spices, cheeses and meats. In fact this was so of da hook, I took a few slices home and ate it cold the next day for breakfast. OMG, it was simply astonishing also as a breakfast wake up meal.
I was really feeling kinda hungry this evening, so I decided to order a few tantalizing items off of the “Kellen’s Station House” menu. When you go, please order one of the following items that I had the complete pleasure of tasting, such as the “Station House Wings” (naked, mild, hot or BBQ), they are so meaty, so tender, so scrumptious and packed with flavor. In fact, the sauce they use is an award winning special recipe. I tried to bribe “Bob” for the ingredients, but I was tastefully denied ;-}
As the food keeps rolling out of the kitchen, my job keeps getting better and better. Next up was the “Fried Pickles With Horseradish Mustard”, as they are purchased fresh daily then treated with a light blend of “Kellen’s” batter and fried to perfection with a side of a custom horseradish mustard dipping sauce. I have not had such magnificent fried pickles since I was in Texas a few years ago. I highly recommend them as an appetizer or even as a bar nibbler.

Taking my appetite a little further, I just had to try the “8 Ounce Prime Beef Station House Burger”, all I need to tell yea is it was 8 ounces of fresh prime beef cooked to perfection, with your choice of American, Swiss, cheddar or blue cheese, bacon, mushrooms, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato all served on a fresh toasted bun. Not to mention a healthy side of homemade “Kellen’s Station House” fries that are cut fresh every single day. Also available are “Kellen’s Parm & Garlic Homemade Fries”, “Kellen’s Cheesy Homemade Fries” and “Kellen’s Homemade Chili Fries”.
A few of my other “Kellen’s Station House” favorites is the “Meatloaf”, wrapped with bacon while being served with Kellen’s delectable mac & cheese. If you like chicken parmesan, then you must try the “Kellen’s Chicken Parm”, served with choice of pasta with a pleasing sweet red sauce. The “Shrimp In A Basket”, was like a fresh taste of the sea, fried up with a crunchy batter, served by the dozen with a side Kellen’s homemade fries. The menu is endless with very reasonably priced items from appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, specialty sandwiches, platters and sides.

I have to give all my culinary respect to the head chef “Chef James”, as he transforms a delightful pub menu into a mouthwatering palatable experience. Everything I had the fortunate opportunity to consume was so freakin good and delightful.

The fine staff here has done their food dining local research and came up with an amazing menu with a totally pocket warming price point on every item they offer.
