This place is neat. Pub atmosphere. Laid back. Waitress was friendly and very knowledgeable. I told her what type of IPA I liked and was leaning towards. She told me I wouldn't be happy with that one and offered another. The one she recommended was actually less money too! An order of the frites. They are truly amazing. Beer was... More

The beer was very good. It lived up to its Belgian name with a good variety of Belgian beers (local brew, Blonde Belgian, Hoegaarden, etc.) as well as others good selection. Lots of tap beers and quite a few bottles (of which I did not sample). The draft prices, were however, a little on the high side. A 12 oz.... More

Extensive beer menu, with multiple Belgian (and USA) options on tap. Restraurant is smallish and was very busy on a Saturday night (reservations strongly recommended), good atmosphere. Fish and chips were good; mussels (cooked with bacon and wine broth) and twice-cooked fries, in the Belgian style, were excellent.

After walking around Philly for a few hours in the cold my friends and I decided to stop here for a quick drink. At first sight this bar is a hole in the wall type setting. Cozy inside with cool copper table tops. We didn't order any food, just drinks. I got the apple pie in a jar and it... More

Awesome brewpub. Kinda small, not a lot of seating, but good selection of taps, huge selection of bottles (I don't drink from bottles except at home), and the food was solid pub grub. A definite go-to whenever I'm in Philly again.

In the City of Brotherly Love for a pub-crawl, I finally got the much-anticipated opportunity to visit this superlative destination, one that I had been reading about for oh so long; and, since it has been reviewed so many times, I?ll keep mine short and subjective. First, I was surprised by the fact that the downstairs bar is very small... More

There is a beer for everyone's tastes. Pitchers are really half pitchers, as our waiter informed us, which is great if you want to do a lot of tasting. We had the house beer, Eulogy, and a few others. All were good. The food was great. Very surprised at the bad reviews. The mussels in beer were excellent. The steak,... More

Visited this little tavern while visiting in Philly for the first time. Tavern was down the street from our hotel. Did not try their food, but I their beers were pretty good. I liked the atmosphere a lot, was a cozy and the people there were pretty cool too.

Eulogy never disappoints, but stick to the basics: mussels, beer, frites, beer, and more beer. Get small orders of mussels if you can't decide on one and try them all!
