Love this place

Love the beer selections here. Food/menu changes and anything I've had there is good. It's a great place to go, hang out with friends and try some good craft beers.

The food was delicious! Had the chicken pie and crab cake sandwich and they passed my expectations. Went on a Saturday night around 9 and sat right away. There's two levels and upstairs has an outside eating area. The tables and stools are pretty small though, and the menu is written on a large chalk board affixed to the wall.... More

Four of us went here for a couple of pints and something to eat before going to a Steely Dan concert in Camden last Monday. Simply put, this is a superb pub. 2 cask beers on handpump - both were excellent. Whole bunch of other beers too. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The barman was friendly and... More

Went for brunch recently to an old favorite, that has unfortunately went downhill! My husband and I were barely acknowledged (not busy)... Then seated in a corner not to be presented with a menu but rather to look at a board of very limited and over-priced options.... Upon poor service, we neglected to stay for brunch and left after a... More

Wife and I had a few beers and cocktails before a show at the Electric Factory. We split the eggplant dip and black bean burger. The food was great. Beer selection was good enough. Our server, bartender, seemed disinterested. That didn't take away from our experience. Great place. Nice neighborhood!

The food was great but the atmosphere also sold me on this place. Very relaxed, no pressure, friendly. I had the avocado toast with egg with a mimosa for lunch - I haven't stopped raving about the toast since. Everyone ordered something different and was very satisfied with their selections - many options. Wait staff is very personable, helpful.

The Standard Tap, just a little north of Center City - Philadelphia - was a solid local neighborhood bar and restaurant. Its somewhat gritty decor, completely fine and appropriate for the look of the place, was counterbalanced with excellent food choices and solid wait service. It's as far from pretentious as possible and if you're looking for an alternative to... More

Standard tap does get pretty crowded on weekends and when other things are going on in the area. Although we haven't tried their food, it smelled delicious... It's a great place to have a few beers and hang out with friends!

The Standard Tap looks like its been there forever. If you like local, this is the place. All beer is local (sorry, no national brands) and the food is from the area when possible. Portions are large and good. Staff is friendly. For three people with food and a couple drinks, you'll probably spend about $75.

This unique tavern located at 2nd and Poplar offers unique food and drink in a quaint setting. The menu, written on the chalkboard changes frequently and seasonally. On a recent night out with friends, we found much more than standard bar fare, although that is available too should you want it. Appetizers were very interesting, and the salads, including a...
