Great Pub on U Penn's campus

We stopped in here while visiting U Penn's campus. It's a great little pub with typical pub fare. I always believe in getting pub food, like a burger and fries, but I would actually recommend the quesadillas here. The burgers and fish and chips were also good. Friendly service.

This is the perfect lunch place to pair with a visit to Independence Hall. I met my sister there, and we had a terrific time, and some very delicious pot pies. Our waitress Alyssa (dressed in Colonial garb), was especially friendly and helpful.

Love this place. Too many good nights spent here. They have pitchers, they have good burgers, and they have $1 taco thursdays (I think it was thursday though tuesday adhere's better to idiom). TV's galore if you don't want to hear what your table mates are gabbing about. And it's a marked improvement over the other pub in west philly,... More

Went with my brother and sister. My sister & I shared a yummy salad that was huge. My brother & sister shared wings. I had a delicious sandwich. We were seated immediately. The service was good & friendly. The prices are especially good for Philadelphia. Second time there as I requested since I enjoyed my first time. Close enough to... More

Coming into the restaurant at 5:30pm with a party of 6 on Saturday night there was no problem getting a table. We started out the evening responding to our server that "no, we were not under time constraints". Had we known that that meant 2 1/2 hours later we'd have to chase down our bill so that we could make... More

My family had lunch at the New Deck Tavern yesterday afternoon. It was a very nice Irish bar with plenty of TVs to watch sporting events. Since it was a beautiful fall day, we decided to eat outside on the patio which was a great place to sit and people watch. Our waitress was excellent and very friendly. I was... More

Stopped in for a late afternoon Sunday lunch. The steak and cheese is very, very much better than at Geno's, and the Reuben was exactly perfect. The beer was cold and the service was attentive. The music seemed strangely out of sync and loud for the style of restaurant, but, we didn't go there for the music anyhow. There are... More
