We have assembled a sampling of what people across the internet are saying about Newtown's Temperance House.


"I had heard good things about the Temperance House and decided to check it out for my wife's birthday. The service was very good. The menu had a nice variety of options for all palates. We both started with an appetizer. I had the flash-fired calamari and my wife had the crab bisque, then we both moved on to the Caesar salad. For the main course I had the pork tenderloin with the apple risoto (which was excellent) and my wife had the crab cakes with the mushroom risoto (also excellent). We finished by sharing a blondie brownie with vanilla ice cream and coffees. Overall I really enjoyed this place and will definitely be going back in the future."

"My fiance is more critical than I and he says that for the price tag he didn't think he would go back. He said the meal was okay (he liked his steak) but just not worth it." Read the full review on Yelp.com.


"Great menu choices, great service. Food prepared as ordered. Great wine list. Everything was Great, cannot wait to go back and bring friends."

"It's been a number of years since we were there and were totally impressed with the changes both in the restaurant and the menu! It was totally an unexpected surprise and we will be back."


"My mom and I had dinner here the other night and were really disappointed." Read the full review on TripAdvisor.

"The food was pretty good as I had the crab cakes and my wife had steak. Our waitress was very nice and the dessert tray was plentiful. It seems that the Temperance is getting its good name back and I'm glad."
