Found this place late one evening when we were driving in from New Jersey. We were hungry and cranky and in need of food. It was about 1230 so we were concerned that we wouldn't find anywhere with an open kitchen. The server was very friendly and accommodating. We had a delicious meal! The was so good in fact that...

This place was pointed out to us by a beer and southern food loving bearded hipster. He commented that their type of food is what he knew and it is awesome, he was not wrong. We had hearty mac and cheese, with a delightfully crispy top, a spicy brisket chilli special and some juicy fried chicken. Everything was excellent. If... More

Stumbled on this place by chance. Ticks so many boxes: interesting and good value food, with a lot of attention to allergens etc.; fantastic beer menu, and in Yards ESA a wonderful strong ale on handguns. Best beer of our entire East Coast trip. Eclectic music and great service. I hope I get the chance to go back. Thank you!

We went in strictly because of the outside look....it looked like a tiny stone house smashed in the middle of bigger buildings. They hv unique choices to the menu with some old favorites like pulled pork and Mac n cheese which was divine. Had a lot of vegetarian choices. Dimly lit. Clean. Wait staff were friendly.

I recently returned to the Kyber Pass and the food is amazing. This former rock club/ dive bar with an amazing jukebox just keeps putting out great food and at a very reasonable price. The jambalaya is so good I got a take out after my meal so I had a back up just in case... Their brunch is also... More

Small pub / dive bar in the heart of the old city. Great cajun food and a fun atmosphere. Highly recommend checking it out!

A group of us popped in here for brunch and were pleasantly surprised! I would have never expected to find such delicious brunch in a pub. The prices were very reasonable and the service and food quality was amazing. Definitely have to try the beignets and the Cafe Au Lait. Amazing!! We will definitely be back!

Snow...it's snowing in Philly. So....I bought their hamburger and a local craft beer. It still has the same charm from years ago. It's dark inside, but a good place to duck into for a beer and food.
