That’s the friendly approach of Revere Restaurant owner Andrew Graham, who purchased the venerable Italian eatery in Ewing, NJ in 2018.
Early on, he decided to keep the great menu that had served area diners for 67 years.
Best sellers include vodka rigatoni, clams casino, and the chicken “classics,” namely parmesan, piccata, francaise and marsala, and of course cacciatore.
In addition, Andrew added steaks, chops and more seafood entrees to the Italian classics.
Regulars rave about the veal chop parmesan, seasoned chicken, Hoboken bread and chopped antipasto salad.
The portions are huge and attractively presented. Be prepared to carry some of your order home with you for tomorrow’s lunch.
A variety of entertainment keeps things lively on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
In addition to cover bands, popular recurring acts include a wandering accordion player and a Frank Sinatra tribute artist.
At 802 River Road, Ewing, New Jersey, Revere is housed in an 1800s building, which was moved not far from its original location after a devasting flood.
You can spy Revere across the Delaware River from the end of Afton Avenue in Yardley.
Access is easy from either the Scudder Falls or Calhoun Street Bridges.
Andrew is a self-made man at only 34-years-old. A graduate of Neshaminy High School, he started in business young, buying a limousine, then a limousine company.
Eventually he acquired and built up Lower Bucks Landscaping. You may have seen their trucks in the area.
He also owns HomeSourcePa, a company that buys, sells, and rents properties throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
In the course of “flipping” properties, he discovered the Revere building in foreclosure and quickly realized that it was more than just an old building.
He acquired and revitalized the restaurant.
In a recent development, Revere sells take-out package goods: six-packs of beer, bottles of wine and spirits, making it a one-stop shop to pick up dinner and beverage.
Revere is open seven days a week, 11:30am to 10pm. Comfortable seating is available indoors or outside under the canopy.
Two party rooms are available for private events or parties. Feel free to stop by for a drink at the large, well-stocked bar.
You are welcome to eat dinner at the bar – near the entertainment – or request a table.
