Good service great food

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!

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

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

Went here three years ago on a suggestion from a few people on UPenn's admission's staff. Was in Philly for a conference and decided to return. Burgers were excellent and the beer selection outstanding and cold. What could be better?

This place is located on a quaint street in Philadelphia at the University of Pennsylvania and has the best french fries on earth. They also have a great, unique 'Buffalo Dip' dish which is very tasty.

The food was fairly decent. They were confused on when their happy hour was actually happening. Overall the experience was a good one.
