Classic Irish pub in downtown Philly has the traditional pub food and good selection of drinks and beers and Guinness on tap. Service was good; TV monitors were showing good selection of sports.

I made a reservation over the phone. Table was ready when we got there. Server was very good. Food was good and reasonably priced for the area. Overall a good experience.

We chose to eat here for the first time due to recommendations from theatre goers and we love irish pubs. The menu is very limited, both food and drinks. The dessert menu only had 2 items. We ordered whiskey sours. They were awful. Nothing close...More

My son and I have eaten here a couple times this year. We sat outside and enjoyed the sights of the city. We had fish and chips both times and they were quite good.

They had me at Strongbow on tap. That said I must add that their sandwiches are quite delicious especially the chicken tinga. Also love the Cozy very private booths and the yummy food. Excellent Service as well.

We choose to eat here because it was convenient for dinner before going to a show. Our server was very friendly and gave us entree suggestions. We were disappointed that there were not more food choices. The sandwiches we had ( chicken & a burger)...More

I enjoyed my time here. The food and alcohol was decent. The music was way too loud! I couldn't hear anything my friends were saying and we were there for dinner. It's cool for nightlife I guess

Very happy friendly and helpful staff. Lots of food choices on the menu the the fado burger was what I had and I would highly recommend it. Brilliant location and excellent for watching sport.

Why must so many Irish pubs blast music? Don't they ever think their customers may want to talk to each other? The food was standard pub fare but was quite tasty. The service was friendly, but very slow.
