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.

Great meal!

Wanted brunch at another highly rated establishment but an hour wait for 2 had us reconsider. Glad we came here instead. Friendly service, welcoming atmosphere, and the huevos rancheros and coffee were excellent! Would definitely return.

Just across Broad Street from the Academy of Music & a block away from the Kimmel Center, Perch Pub is both convenient & worthwhile for food & refreshments before the music. Sitting upstairs at the good-looking, wood-paneled bar before a recent Sunday matinee, we enjoyed Bloody Mary's & bulging tasty hot colorful veggie omelets, served with home fries, a pile... More

I was here with a few friends a couple weeks back and we were having a nice time playing pool in the back of the pub. We were sipping on a few drinks and when it was our turn on the pool table we stepped 2 feet away from our drinks and before we knew it they were gone. One... More

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

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
