Great neighborhood restaurant with a great staff and owner. The menu has great choices for vegans and those of us that enjoy our meat. Tonight I enjoyed cornmeal crusted cauliflower. I try something new each time I go and have never been disappointed. They also have a large selection of craft beers. There are also weekly specials.

Their tacos are amazing! They are very reasonably priced daily, but even more affordable on Taco Tuesday. Their craft beer selection never disappoints, nor does the service. Sit inside or outside. Wax nostalgic over a Fishtown Tea. Go here immediately.

I love to come here with my boyfriend and friends to grad a flight of beers or get their awesome nachos. Interstate takes itself less seriously than Kraftwork, and is cheaper, which is the kind of places I tend to like. You can't beat the price of their flights.

As some of the other reviews have stated, "A fun, friendly bar with something for everyone". Literally, we saw everyone from couples with babies to seniors coming in to enjoy the food and great beer selections (well the babies were just enjoying the food :-). We spent all afternoon tasting some great beers that are hard to find anywhere else.... More

We met a few friends there last night along with the owner Bob. This was my first time here and I was truly delighted at the atmosphere . This is a wonderful quaint tavern/restaurant. The food and service is awesome. Everything we ordered was so good and fresh. I just loved the jambalaya and the Brussels spouts. My husband loved... More

It is an everyman's bar! Hipsters, oldheads, young families, everyone fits in at this fun and hip watering hole! The food is unique and scrumptious, the staff friendly and attentive, the bathrooms are unisex and sometimes icky...you can't have it all folks! LOL With the great menu and beer selections, it is easy to over look the ick-factor in the... More

Went to grab some food, ordered a burger with bacon. Got a lamb burger instead with no bacon and loud additude from the kitchen when it went back. Bartender was on point, my option the only good thing.

A solid neighborhood bar with good local draft selection and food. We stopped in while in the neighborhood for a show. A short walk from the Girard subway stop this bar tucked away on a neighborhood street is a good getaway with a back partially-covered patio. We started with guacamole & chips which was very tasty and a very nice... More

The former owner of Azure has opened this quaint little place in the Fishtown neighborhood. Just a half block north from Girard Ave on Palmer St. The taps are varied with an emphasis on local beer. Their signature drink is Fishtown Ice Tea. Happy hour is Monday-Friday with drink specials and selected foods. The overall menu has a Southwest flair... More
