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

I was here with my daughter, her roommate, and her parents. We had dinner and a few drinks. Fun atmosphere, lots of TVs, large menu to choose from.

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

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 evening weather.

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
