“Mikey Jr!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We didn't actually eat here--although the french fries at a neighboring table looked great--my sister and I just had an ale and listened to the blues on a Wed nite. Loved it! Very attentive bartender, good atmosphere and the best music. Mikey Jr on the harmonica and Filthy Rich on the guitar. I'd just gotten in from the west coast and the Twisted Tail was the perfect hit of Philly. Be sure to go there on a Wed or a Sun nite and say hi to Mikey.

“Fun atmosphere, great cocktail menu, great service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Loved this place...creatively combined food experiences and freshly made unique cocktails like Peach Moonshine. Bourbon flights were interesting and wait staff seemed to be continuously happy.

“Nice Ambiance!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

I visited on 1 Aug with my husband for our anniversary; the restaurant and service was very good. My husband had a trio of drinks fused with various flavors. We also had the corn (very good) and crab cake (okay) appetizers. For the main course we had the chicken in a bag, which was delightful. The presentation was so pretty I almost didn't want to eat it. Our waiter was very attentive however; he seemed to be a bit overwhelmed.

Overall, we enjoyed our visit and food. We would recommend TT to anyone looking for good food and a nice environment.
