Description: Perch Pub has been completely renovated into a comfortable, relaxed, unpretentious pub. The dining room and bar has one of the best dining views in the city for people watching- separate areas for a pool table and dart board. Other amenities include a juke box, HDTVs and a large drop-down projection screen in the dining room for those big games. The interior has the feel of a time-less pub; lots of rich mahogany finishes complimented by large areas of exposed brick and metal beams. Perch promises to have pub grub excellence with Chef Bill Carroll at the kitchen helm. Open at 4PM seven days a week with plans to expand our hours of operation to lunch Monday through Friday and a Saturday / Sunday brunch.

Had the ricotta mixed berry pancakes and chicken and waffles off the brunch menu. Both were light and delicious. Great view from the upstairs dining room and right across the street from The Academy of Music.

Perch is great for before or after theater drinks and light bites. We've never eaten dinner there before, but the food is pretty standard. The bar is large and the serivce is quick. Choose from a full line of drinks and wines, and a pretty full menu (mostly sandwiches, burgers, etc).

Once again I popped into the Perch Pub at the last minute before a show at the Academy of Music, and once again the Perch Pub did not disappoint! The place was packed, but within 5 minutes I had a table. This pub has a wonderful, welcoming, friendly and efficient staff. The beer selection is amazing and the food is... More

Stopped in on the way to our car after Christmas show. Lucked out to a table for two overlooking locust street. Nice salad with grilled chicken, and fish and chips with salad. Excellent food and broad selection of craft beers.....we will stop in again next time in the city......great find!

Too busy right before a show but sneak a micro beer or nice meal when the place empties out about 7:30pm on weekends. Great food and service. Very Fresh fish n chips and salmon special entree. Could be a tourist trap because of location on second floor on broad street but also could be a gem. Great service, ambiance, clean.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed dinner recently with three friends. The staff was happy to accommodate our early reservation in time to attend a nearby event. The menu had a nice selection and some gluten free items too, all at a reasonable price. We enjoyed dinner as well as the background music, at just the right volume. We'll go back for sure.

My husband and I stopped here after dinner for a drink and we were pleasantly surprised. We sat next to a window in the bar area upstairs and loved it. Even though the bar was busy, energetic and had a lot of people talking it was very relaxing. They had a very large selection of beer and other beverages. The... More

My husband and I dined here for dinner on Sunday, October 12 before seeing a performance at the Academy of Music across the street. The location is great if you're seeing a show there or at the Kimmel Center. Luckily, we made reservations, and they seated us immediately after arriving. Their beer selection is extensive. My husband got the Southern... More

We stayed at the Double tree next door and we had just spent the day walking and sight seeing and we were a little tired so we decided not to go far for dinner and we saw there was a pub right there. It was great! We had the malanga chips and they were great, I hadn't had those since... More
