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.

I went here with some friends I hadn't seen in years - we ordered 3 bottles of expensive wine, and appetizers - yes, we were there for quite a while, but to ask us to leave b/c there were people waiting was wrong. The tab was hundreds of dollars for a table of 4 (we scrunched in a 5th person).... More

Traditional Pub grub - just OK. Small outside seating and a fair range of beers and Sports on TV. Next to a cute coffee shop.

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.
