I went there yesterday for a quick drink. It was early afternoon, so no one in there. I'll bet it gets quite loud and crowded at night. Beer was cold

Love this bar! Mariel is the best bartender! A small bar in south Philly let us come eat our cheesesteaks inside on a cold day. A very comfortable and welcoming place with a great beer selection!

Simple pub but as well as the standard tap fare, has some nice craft beer as well. If you like IPAs, they have a couple on tap, local Philadelphia crafts. Cool decor along with some working retro arcade games (remember Ms. Pacman, anyone?). Recommend.

We stopped here for a pre (cheesesteak) drink. This is a basic dive bar (mostly in a good way) near the two famous cheesesteak places (one HIGHLY OVER RATED) The service was OK and the drinks were fine. Overall not bad but nothing special.

Divey bar, but hey, stop in for a drink after a Pat's cheesesteak. Several beers on draft, some decent liquors, and we've hit generally nice bartenders.
