Early New Year's Eve Dinner

Our family of five arrived after the 6pm New Year's Eve fireworks on the waterfront. Fortunately we had a reservation because it was packed (as expected!) even though the evening had barely started for most revelers! The list of beers is phenomenal which was the impetus for eating here. Service was... read more

A single woman bellying up to the bar ordering a Trippel should at least garner interest from the bartender. NONE - nothing - barely eye contact. I am Belgian. The Specialty of the House - the double fried french fries - not worth ordering. Disappointed. Won't be back

I often find myself driving down to Old City just to go to the bar. Great beer selection and knowledgeable staff keeps me coming back. The wings and the mussels are a bonus.

When you walk in the pace is a very small dark bar. Go upstairs if you intend on eating and there's an additional bar up there. The waiter/bartender upstairs was great and very helpful. We tried several beers and a couple mixed drinks. Prices were reasonable on the liquor. Beer was more. We ordered the dijon mussels which were great.... More

We traveled from DC to Philly and had this place on our list of bars to check out (we looked at Trip Advisor reviews!) It was Christmas night, and not too busy. The four of us sat at the bar. Cool ambiance downstairs, dark and moody with odd things on the wall. Upstairs was what they called the coffin room,... More

Went for a dinner at Eulogy with the hope of getting some Belgian fare. It seems the only Belgium aspect is the name. We were seated upstairs where a single waiter was running around. When asking for some advise on the beer - the waiter was unable to recommend or give any recommendations. Getting the beer took a long while,... More

My husband and I went here for dinner and had 2 different experiences. He had the Sausage Trio dinner and loved it, I had the 3 Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich and thought it was ok, but not great. We also ordered Wings for an appetizer but they came out with our dinner. They do have a large beer selection, which... More

Highlight of the trip! 400 choices of bottled beer. Largest selection of Belgian Draft beera I've ever seen. Friendly servers. Old time music. Great place!

We stayed down the street and happened upon Eulogy. We got lucky with a seat at the upstairs bar. They had St. Bernardus beer on tap and it was one of the best I have ever had. The bartender told us it had been rated #5 in the world. We got the hangar steak sandwich which was ok. They asked... More

Stopped in for lunch while on a business trip. Was not disappointed. I had the frietjes and moules mariniere. If you're in the neighborhood stop in here for authentic Belgian cuisine and enjoy the atmosphere.
