This is a great pub to hangout have drinks, good food, and fun times. Everything on the menu is good. This place is good for private parties and casual business meetings. It gets crowded for happy hour. The beer selection is awesome. Cheers!

Being on the hunt for the "best" Philadelphia cheesesteak while in Philly for a couple of days and I found a really good one here. In fact the #1 rated cheesesteak on Trip Advisor is Jim's and we were very disappointed in Jim's in comparison. The real surprise at New Deck Tavern is an energetic and talented young waiter who...

This restaurant was ok on all levels. Nothing was bad, but nothing stood out or made it unique. It seems like the sort of place to go for tavern food that serves its purpose or if you are into beer.

Sometimes I'll take my Senior pass and ride the train out to University City from the western suburbs just to hoist a few at this congenial place. I have always found the place to be attentive and at times, frequented by interesting regulars. Bar is complete and when I have sandwiches or tavern fare I have never been disappointed. And... More

It seems that we arrived when our server was about to end her shift, so we were left hanging for quite a while until we were able to flag down a replacement. Other than that, the service here was not bad (definitely friendly, if a bit slow). We had beer and cider, which was fine. Also had the appetizer sampler,... More
