Just average

The food here is fairly good. The service here is average at best. This is not a well trained staff. Service is inconsistent. So, if you are looking for an average place, quiet, decent environment, this place works. Great location.

I come here with my friend at off hours. We usually order something light and have some drinks. When we ask if we can order the chicken flatbread pizza not spicy, we are accommodated.

Had to wait over an hour for 2 Philly Cheesesteaks & we were the only people ordering food. Tried to use it a second time after about 10 mins we managed to get served in the empty bar however we got a fresh orange juice served in a cracked glass & a very nice craft ale

First off, our waitress was very nice but everyone else we encountered wasn't very nice, and seemed uninterested in speaking with you. The food was good but there wasn't a lot to choose from. Loved the ranch dressing which seemed to have chunks of feta? In it and my boyfriend enjoyed his philly sandwich.

In house tavern at the Raddison Blue with great cocktails, friendly staff and yummy brunch. Other pub type foods are also available. Good choice for us after a busy day in Philly.
