A cozy pub in an unsuspectedly nice area of Philadelphia's Center City. Nice ambiance, good beers, corteous service. Food was ok but quite expensive. On the plus side, the kitchen is open till 1 a.m.

Slip past the crowded bar (or not) to cozy fireside dining room. Start with asparagus salad! Maybe some mussels with red or white sauce? Burgers or pasta good too! Or just hang at the friendly bar with high top tables.

Great small spot with killer food! The Whiskey selection is great! Ranges from basics to 124 proofs. A must have is the French Onion Soup, bring your friends- you'll wanna stay for awhile.

Nice waitress! Great atmosphere! But... and I truly understand that no place is perfect, they would have saved us as customers had they just shown a little compunction about the hair we pulled from my daughter’s roast pork sandwich. Not even a complementary beverage or...More
