Cool vibe, just too crowded on Saturday night. I asked for a light beer but it was still pretty dark. The Mac and cheese was delicious and creamy.

I came here with a group and we all had a good time. Parking is street parking but we were surprised that we had no trouble finding plenty of spaces, even on a Friday night. The games were fun and nostalgic, but expect a long wait to play popular games like TMNT. Bar service was quick and friendly, and there... More

I moved to Philadelphia this past August and have made it a point to come to Barcade after work on every Monday I can. The atmosphere is great, the bartender is friendly and offers suggestions. The arcade games are great; despite gaining an addiction for Galaga.

We went to the Barcade with some friends on a recent trip to Philly. I'm from Atlanta and this arcade bar is much better than the one we have in Atlanta - joystick. The bar tender was nice and the drink choices were creative. I had the summer take on an old fashioned and the rest of my group imbibed... More

My husband and I have been to Barcade several times with friends and always have a blast. They always have about 20 beers on tap, and they're regularly switching them up. The old school arcade games are super fun - there are about 50 to choose from. During the day it's generally not crowded at all so you have your... More

A great stop for an evening of drinking and arcade games. The classic games from your childhood are around and they had fantastic microbrews from around the country on tap. Fantastic décor inside. Be prepared to drop quite a few quarters on the games during your time there because the games are addicting as ever. Classic TMNT was my favorite

I've been frequenting barcade for several months now and I must admit tht it was mostly for the craft beer nd 80's video games(only 25 cents) What I didn't know was how good the food is aand what a bargain! All happy hour drafts are dicounted and all appetizers are half off! I had a huge hummus plate, chorizo quesadilla,... More

Went there on a whim last night and was happy to have found this gem of an establishment! The decor was really cool, food excellent (I had the Cuban sandwich and my date had the grilled cheese and said it was awesome too), and the selection of craft beers on tap numerous. And then you have the throw back games... More

24 beers on top and a cider. I had the cider and it was excellently balanced, not too sweet and not too dry. I was here on a monday night so it was kind of dead, but the bartender was nice enough and the clientele not too rowdy. I had come here for some post dinner entertainment (Fette Sau is... More
