This cozy pub is a good place to watch world cup soccer. The place is a tad dark/dim inside but that allows one to focus on the game and conversation with friends.

We loved this place. It had that great old school feel with a old weathered bar. We only had beers but the food looked reasonably priced. We will be back the next time we stay in center city.

A solid choice near Rittenhouse Square. Great selection of brews and pub fare a cut above, and in an environment where you can actually conduct a conversation. Burgers were excellent, but more sophisticated menu choices are available too.

We stopped in here after a show at the Kimmel and sat on the second floor. It's a little dark inside, but the service was very firendly, and the food was really good. Nothing fancy - comfort food.
