Loved this little Irish Pub located on a charming side street very near U Penn, Drexel University, and the Sheraton University City. Loved the charming atmosphere, and the food was excellent. Prices were very reasonable, too.

Looks very small from the street but actually a large Irish Pub. We had shepherds pie that was nearly as good as Mum's! Great prices.

At university of penn talking some business classes and this seems like the place to go. Food is good. Service all depends on which waitress you get. We have had great ones and not do great ones. Definitely worth a visit while in philly.

The New Deck offers traditional Irish and American food and a great selection of beer. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food was good. Prices are in line with other city taverns.

I had the delicious chicken tenders while sitting at the bar. The bartender was very attentive and recommended a local beer that turned out to be great also. I love the atmosphere of Irish pubs and this did not disappoint.

Stopped in for lunch during business trip. Had excellent fish and chips with vinegar and salt and Harp beer on tap. Recommend for casual open ambiance, many great side tables and corners to have private conversations.

It was an abnormally warm day in February and we wanted to eat outside, but all the tables were taken, so they sat us inside by some open windows, which was very nice. Our server was very pleasant too, but unfortunately none of us really...More
