Great little boozer full of character and friendly locals and staff, definitely not your generic Irish Pub abroad. Food fantastic, met the owner James who hails from Belfast and he certainly knows how to run and create an interesting pub, also cheers for the pint.

We stayed at the 1715 Rittenhouse boutique hotel and wanted a local spot for a night cap before calling it a night. This was the perfect choice. Was a block away from our hotel. The jukebox was awesome (Oasis, Grace Potter!!!!).... Beer was cold, tasty and it was a great crowd for a late Weds night. They had trivia, which was a nice break in between good songs - but reminded me I shouldn't try out for Jeopardy anytime soon. Great place and glad we stopped in!

The food is pretty good but on the second floor the place smells like cooking because of the kitchen window so I got out smelling like all kinds of food.

Cool staff, put the champions league soccer on for me (despite everyone else in there oblivious and probably annoyed by it). Lamb chops are really good - ~$3/ea - must get at least 3. I got 4 and gnawed each one to the bone

If you go with a pub expectation, you will be pleasantly surprised by the food. Not an expansive menu but solid traditional, with a great mix. Service is friendly and very efficient. Expect lively interaction, not a subdued setting. With those expectations you will be pleased. This is a small, customer friendly corner pub.
