It has obvious historic connections to our fore fathers. It's where they hung out after a tough day at Independence Hall. But history isn't it's greatest attraction, the food and service are extraordinary. First of all, I made a reservation for 7pm but found ourselves finished with our site seeing way early but they took us in 1 hour early. Nice. All ales and recipes have some connection to our sainted revolutionaries, using, sometimes, the fore fathers recipes. Very nice! Our server Alyssa couldn't have been friendlier or more knowledgeable of what would make this dining experience even better. "And", a gentleman in revolutionary garb played a harp in the hallway for all to enjoy. Wow! It wasn't just a meal but a highlight of our great visit to Philly.
