Nice atmosphere and good food

I first went there during restaurant week, and liked it enough to come back when my family visited me from France. Both times I had crab cakes, which is really good. They are two nice-sized cakes, served with french fries, tartare sauce and coleslaw. We sat outside and enjoyed the nice... read more

We were on our way to a spot next door to New Deck, and were impressed with the high energy here, and decided to stay put. A busy restaurant with indoor & outdoor seating options. The flavor of their decor is pub-like. A good feel overall ... Their menu is rather predictable. We went with the sheperd's pie, a classic... More

We just had lunch at New Deck Tavern. The atmosphere was good. It's a quaint pub in a beautiful old building. It has plenty of interesting things to look at on the shelves & walls. The tables are very close together so I imagine it can get pretty loud & claustrophobic when it is busy. I started out the review... More

Stumbled upon this place just as we walked off the Penn campus. Could not have been more pleased. Several "half & half beers" that you cannot get just anywhere. I tried the Belgian Waffle (Guiness atop Hoegaaden) which was great! Burgers and salads are fantastic. If we become a UPenn family, I can already tell you that this will become... More

I was in town for a week for business and we frequented this place. They have really good food and we received great service every time we went. Glenna was a wonderful waitress! Their mixed drinks were also delish!

Stop in for a pint and quick bite with friends. Nothing spectacular, but very enjoyable. Can get crowded at lunch when school is in session.

Looking for a "Cheers" type experience? You can't go wrong visiting New Deck Tavern. Plenty of Irish atmosphere, cold beer and room to relax. I recommend and will be back again.

With authentic Irish ambience, good brews, friendly service & great menu, that includes old standbys & new combos, this was a perfect choice for lunch w/ our granddaughters, who chose the usual cheeseburger & blockbuster fish & chips, while we relished a salmon BLT & chicken curry over rice.

Grabbed a beer and some dinner here while in the area staying at the Hilton Inn at Penn (2 blocks away). This is a fantastic neighborhood, nestled within the University of Penn and Drexel University. And this Tavern is one of the best - if not THE best - Irish tavern I've been in! The made me a proper Black... More
