Beer was very good, didn't eat any food. Bartender was ok but not friendly. She needs another profession.

Ate here with another couple. Everything we ordered was good pub type food. They even had some options for vegetarians which I appreciated. The beer drinkers enjoyed the beer which is brewed by nodding head brewery

In Philly for a convention and stopped in to try their beers, found their IPA and Porter very good did not care at all for the Sour Ale but I've never found a Sour I liked. Very good service and friendly helpful staff.

As a craft beer aficionado I was eager to try this Brewery and Restaurant on a recent trip to Philadelphia. While the food was good and the service was friendly the beer's were below average. We tried 3 of their own beers and all were...More

...not much more to say. We didn't eat so I can't comment on that but otherwise it was nothing more than an average bar. We went in for a few beers after dinner out. We wanted to try one of their own brews, but they...More
