This old place is awesome. It's not easy to back-in parking spots close-by but we made it work. The building offers bar, tables and outside dining. The menu on a Sunday afternoon was limited but we were there based on the reviews that this was one of the best burgers in the city. I think I would agree. The burgers... More

Yes you need to go to the chalk board to read the dinner and beer menus which change every day. You can always get a burger, a duck salad, or a pot pie but note now and then "bratwurst" or hangar steak--who wants that until you ask your server and you get so much information they would need a printing...

Went here based on a friend's recommendation. We ate outside on the second floor next to Poplar St. The first thing that bothered me was having to stand up to read the menu written in multiple colors of chalk on a blackboard. It probably would not have bothered me so much, except there were people trying to eat sat at... More

My husband and I really love Standard Tap - whether going with friends, family or just ourselves we always enjoy the food, the beers and the service. The first floor is first-come, first-serve for a seat at the bar on grabbing a table. On the second floor, there is another bar area with first-come, first-serve tables and a restaurant area... More

We went to standard tap with a large group - teens and adults. It was a great meal and great ambience. The food was delicious and the beer was even better. Saw it on the travel channel a few months ago and had to try it out. I can't wait to go back.

GREAT atmosphere and terrific beer selection. The food was tasty, although I wouldn't say the best I've had. But it's definitely worth a stop if you're in the No Libs area of Philly, which itself is a charming neighborhood.

Come hungry and leave happy! It won't matter what you order, but certainly accompany your main with a side of the habanero grits. Just first rate, down home, no frills, outstanding cuisine. The food is the center of the attention, the service makes you the center of theirs. Get there!

I have been to Standard Tap many times and the food is always delicious and satisfying.The place is always jammed,but if you grab a drink and wait,a table or spot at one of the bars usually opens. Two of us went recently on a Saturday around 7:30,and after scoring a prime parking spot right in front,we were feeling lucky. Of... More
