My wife's meal was much better than mine. She ordered the meatloaf special on pita. (She gave me a bite: quite tasty). I got a burger. The bun was very ordinary, and the meat was dry. But the fries! Wow. Best I've had in years....More

It's a bit off the beaten path, but it's an amazing little resturant with one of the best burgers, fries and wings I've ever had! A good place to eat after visiting the Pententary!

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.

Walked there from art museum, but it is quite a walk and crossing the streets was a bit of a challenge. Ate outside and loved it. I think they were a short on bussers that night, but otherwise the staff seemed on top of things....More
