I love this place. Great selection of beers (local and regional), as well as an amazing assortment of bar food.

We sat at a booth inside and it had the perfect pub feel. You could also talk. Loved the coconut shrimp. I had an excellent salmon dish. Nice selection of beers on tap. Will definitely go back the next time I'm in Philly.

We had a tasty lunch here, spicy crab soup and fish tacos. Moderately priced. We enjoyed the atmosphere and decor both upstairs and down. They were so accomodating at night for the large group we were and arranged for us easily.
