Great French Fries and 'Buffalo Dip'

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.

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?

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.

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.
