Great place to go for a sandwich and a beer. Also, they have a nice selection of entrees. Friendly place and nice for friends and family.

“Great beers, good atmosphere and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We went here to have a couple of beers before reservations for dinner in nearby Bella Vista/Italian restaurant row - easy 10 minute walk away. The Tap Room has a great draft selection and a cooler full of hard to find/excellent beers. We came again after dinner to finish out our night and enjoyed excellent beers and french fries as well - special note - the ketchup is made in house and is excellent.

I asked for them to put on a football game and they did. Great place if you are in the neighborhood.

“Gastropub Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

A little off the beaten path for me but well worth the trip. Soul warming heart comforting food classics in a convivial atmosphere. Terrific sandwiches, love the wait staff & they have a great beer/cider list. Perfect after a game, before a concert

“Excellent Beer Menu and Very Decent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Tap Room has a great beer selection at an acceptable price. It is in an area surrounded by universities, so the age of the average customer is a bit younger. Surprisingly, the food is pretty good and the menu is fairly interesting. The pizza is very good as are the burgers. Don't hesitate to try the chicken, steak or BBQ. The atmosphere is very energetic but so noisy that you can't have a conversation. The place is attractive and the service is very good. I have been there twice and enjoyed it both times.

“Great Neighborhood Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The calibre of the food and beer at South Philly Tap Room are unexpected. In sort of a weird, funky neighborhood, this place is fun. Their beer offerings are many and interesting. A lot of the food is "comfort" food with some imagination. Some of the best mac&cheese ever. Consistently good place for great beer, food, and people.
