We walked in a little before midnight on a Friday - we were seated immediately and then waited for 20 minutes and never met our waiter. We asked multiple staff members to send our waiter over - nothing. We gave up and sat at the bar, where the bartender (Susan??) was AWESOME. She totally turned around our visit - really... More

I ordered the Shepherd's Pie, which was delicious. Almost everything else looked great as well. Would definitely come back again.

My wife is an Alumni of UPENN and while she was in school we had gone to New Deck many times and also had great service. The food is typical bar food but the atmosphere makes up it. A great stop for lunch or to just grab a few drinks.

My wife and I ate dinner here twice and thought the meals were good and the prices also very good. I had the Shepherds Pie one night and the Monterey Chicken another night. My wife had 2 different salads and enjoyed them both although I don't remember which ones she had. Wine was also reasonable and good.

We selected this restaurant since the menu was interesting and the beer selection met our tastes; Madison was an excellent waitress who was patient and very informative. Before we left we noticed someone getting served the crab dip which enticed us to return the next evening; which was very good, the cheese steak egg rolls were also very good.

We were staying in University City (West Philly) and stumbled on this bar/restaurant one night. My husband was peckish, so he had some chicken strips which were good enough he said he'd go back - which we did a few days later. We watched the NCAA game while enjoying good beer and food. It is a typical campus pub -... More

Perfectly poured Guinness, service was friendly and on time. Shared a lunch that was very good. I also liked the peanuts that were available before lunch was served. The place was very busy at 11:30 am. You know is has to be good when it is full of locals.
