I want there to watch one of the Copa American matches. I like their chicken wings with BBQ sauce, and ranch. The ice tea was amazing, I didn't drinks alcohol but my friend said that, the whiskey was great and I trusted him.

I love the cobble stones, the original railroad outside and the history of Philadelphia. Cavanaugh's fit right in. Dark wood beams, carpet, small, the front bar has everything you need to complete the feeling of 1700's nostalgia of Philly. We went on a cool night...More
