We had some good food-recommend the ribs appetizer, salmon and the burger- and some not so good-the snapper was not fresh. Wine is pricey at $14/glass. Chairs not very comfortable. Service average.

My family and I stayed at the adjoining hotel. The restaurant was an excellent spot for breakfast before heading out for the day. Great service and very good food. Well priced compared to what we are used to.

Had dinner two evenings while staying at the Monaco. Both meals were excellent! I had their outstanding hamburger one night and a lovely salmon filet the other. Service was prompt, attentive and pleasant. Would definitely eat there again.

Great location near Liberty Bell. Bar pub atmosphere, warm and cozy. We ate aorund 2:00, so not crowded. Good pub food... not a lengthy menu, but great options. Husband had his first authentic Philly Cheese steak sandwich. Very, very good, it has a kick to it! I had salad with salmon. Beer & wine were cold and tasty. Would give... More

We really enjoyed the Red Owl Tavern during our most recent visit to Philly. We had breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks and appetizers at various times throughout our stay. We never left disappointed. Don't miss their great drinks and the cheese board. They also had a great burger and BLT.

Staying at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco has its benefits and this bar and restaurant attached to it is one of them! Good food and friendly service!

This tavern is situated next to the hotel Monaco. The hotel service is outstanding but I can't say the same for here. A lot of the staff seem to think it's too much trouble. Good Food is very average and over priced.

Had a steak dinner at the bar of the Red Owl before going on a Ghost Tour. The location of the restaurant/bar is perfectly situated within just blocks of the historic district of town and almost next door to the Ghost Tour. Bar has a large selection of beers and drinks. The food is excellent and the servers are fast... More
