We were in from a day of traveling and were just looking for a small dinner and a beer. Fergie's was a walk from the hotel. They were understaffed for our visit with only one bartender and one server. She was obviously stretched. The meal was satisfactory and fit the bill, but nothing above average.

My husband and I stopped in Fergie's Pub after we finished having dinner across the street. We saw a sign for craft beer and figured we'd stop in and see if they had anything interesting to try. We sat down and ordered two local brews and really enjoyed it. The bartender at Fergie's was great! Once we ordered our first... More

This was a nice, local bar close to our hotel. The service was extremely quick. The only drawback was how dark it was for being late afternoon. However, the food was great, the alcohol selection was good, and we were impressed by the service.

We stopped for a pint and something to hold us over for dinner. The French onion soup was hearty and delicious. We thought $8 for a pint was a bit high, however.

Fergie's was recommended by a local who deposited us there on a crowded Saturday afternoon. The place was really buzzing and they had five musicians playing at an adjacent table. It was enjoyable and the vibe was good. We had the pub fries, which were surprisingly good. Service was off a bit due to the size of the crowd, but... More

Stopped by after a show-staff not really helpful about seating us.Ventured upstairs and only 1server for all the tables.We wound up sharing a table with the overflow from a large group of very loud guys. Drinks came fairly quickly, but saw very little food coming out-family next to us stated they had been waiting 45 min. All of a sudden,... More

Fergie's is a Philadelphia institution, for beer-lovers and others who like the ambiance of a classic old pub. A popular lunch spot, Fergie's also features live music in an upstairs room. The downstairs bar room is small and cozy. Long wooden bar leading to an area with table service. On a recent lunch visit, my party of three were greeted... More

We stopped here on a Saturday afternoon for a beer after a day of touring Philly. What a great little place! There was a six piece group sitting at a corner table playing Irish music and a very festive crowd. We had a couple Guiness and a couple shots of Jamison's and listened to the music for awhile. This turned... More

We went to Fergie's tonight to hear a band, and showed up quite early. Parking was easy in the lot immediately next door, but cost $15. The doorman, servers, and bartenders were all pleasant, and did a good job even on a very busy night. Both downstairs and upstairs were jammed with people - there was a private party upstairs...
