Good Food. Staff in a hurry to close

We came in a little late. What i do not like in a restaurant is when they rush you to finish because they are about to close. And this is one of those. But the food is good and price is reasonable. It's classy and a little quiet, which is nice.

Mike and Fran are emblematic of world-class service. Warm, engaging, and helpful. A stranger feels at home instantly.

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. That dish is light and flavorful even without spice. Very nice. When we asked if we could change the trio of sliders, we were accommodated. We... More

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.
