I come here with my friend at off hours. We usually order something light and have some drinks. When we ask if we can order the chicken flatbread pizza not spicy, we are accommodated. That dish is light and flavorful even without spice. Very nice. When we asked if we could change the trio of sliders, we were accommodated. We have also had the short rib quesadilla and tater tots. These were OK. Cocktails are good and there is a happy hour! The service is old school Philly - so authentic. What more can a body want?

Our first night there we went here for a meal. The waiter came took our drinks order and gave us a food menu. We ordered our food and the drinks came. We waited and waited and waited for food. After about half an hour the waiter came amd apologised for the delay saying the food should be here soon. After another half hour the food arrived. The food was fine but after an hours wait I had gone past wanting it.
On the Sunday afternoon we called in for a drink. It took around 15 minutes before our order was taken. My drink was served in a cracked glass. Not good at all.

Had to wait over an hour for 2 Philly Cheesesteaks & we were the only people ordering food. Tried to use it a second time after about 10 mins we managed to get served in the empty bar however we got a fresh orange juice served in a cracked glass & a very nice craft ale

First off, our waitress was very nice but everyone else we encountered wasn't very nice, and seemed uninterested in speaking with you. The food was good but there wasn't a lot to choose from. Loved the ranch dressing which seemed to have chunks of feta? In it and my boyfriend enjoyed his philly sandwich.
