Dropped in on a Sunday night. Bartender was great and beer selection was decent. Prices could have been better but for a Sunday night in Philly you can't complain. Good atmosphere! Would return.

If you are Philly go to Finn McCools. A wonderful Irish Pub. Heather the bartender is the champion pourer of Guinness. The food is excellent. Great atmosphere.

Had the stew and Bangers and Mash. Food was rich and flavorable, a surprise as I thought Irish cooking was supposed to be bland. Super friendly wait staff, cozy atmosphere and very affordable. Will definately come here again.

Had plans to go to dinner with family in from Seattle. Dog sitter recommended by hotel never showed so we went here to dine al fresco with dog. Waitress very pleasant and attentive. She brought the dog a bowl of water with our drinks. We told the dog it was Guinness. Food was very good. We all got something different and then tried each others. Everything was very good. Will definitely go back again!

Went for happy hour with colleagues. The wine was 3 a glass, good price for the city. Not pyre Irish selection. A mix of Irish and Mediterranean. The food is very good just different.
