Great time

We had a group of about 15 of us last night to celebrate my brother buying his first house and him and his girlfriend also getting engaged. The staff was very accommodating. Had a large table set up for us upon arrival and our server, Grace, did a great job keeping our drinks full. The food was... read more

I got the schnitzel, my pup has a easier time with his toys. My girls sandwich was very tasty and the beer selection was nice. Lots of craft taps and a hefty bottle selection. I would have given the fourth star if the owner was nice to me.

This place was popping up on every review list, tv show, and "must try" article this summer. Naturally I had to check it out and thank goodness I did. It was worth every review and shoutout. The charred green beans were dynamite and every meal my group had was delicious. I had the fried chicken with rainbow chard and mac... More

My husband and I spent a night in Philadelphia and decided to have lunch at Memphis Taproom. The menu on a Saturday morning until 3pm is the brunch menu, so limited options were available, unfortunately. The place is split between the bar area and the restaurant. They also have a beer garden outside with a food truck (but there's a... More

After exploring this area of Philly known as Fishtown, we made our way over to the Memphis Taproom. Our bartender/waitress was awesome, really friendly. Service was quick. Salmon BLT (special) was good, but the bacon was way, way too salty. Smoked Coconut Club was amazing. Fries are fantastic, hot, fresh, and crispy. They have a nice selection of taps both... More

We are Philadelphia foodies and love to try new places in the city. So what took so long to get to Memphis Taproom, I have no idea. One thing for sure, we will certainly be back. This venue is "off the beaten path," when it comes to the city's "hotspots." If you live in the Frankford/Kensington/Fishtown area of the city... More

This place is legendary in the Fishtown neighborhood. I believe it was also featured on a Food Network show. I am always wary of restaurants with that high of a reputation. However, this restaurant deserves its reputation. It consistently offers innovative cuisine, especially for vegetarians. The beer selection is always diverse. I personally love sour beers, and they always seem... More

I had not been to the Memphis Taproom in about a year. My buddy and I went. Still the best burgers. And we've been looking for a comparable. And the beer is the best. Not too many places have cask beer. But it's here. And it's good. How good you ask? Really good. So why don't I come here more... More

I ordered the fried pickles, which I usually LOVE anywhere I go but they were beer battered and it was WAY too thick. Then I made the mistake of ordering the special. Fish & Chips. Also, WAY OVER BATTERED. My boyfriend got the Memphis burger, which was good. So we may give it another try. But no battered anything for... More
