Physically this is pretty much everything you would want in a center city pub. It's active, friendly, pretty with a lot of colorful lighting. It's a small space and it can be very crowded. There is an extensive beer list and there are some rare beers. However, being on the list doesn't necessarily mean that the beer is actually in... More

Good place to eat if you want a quick bite before going to the theater. It is mostly the type of food found at any bar/pub.

Touristing for first time in Philadelphia and looked for a place after walking around with our kids. The food was okay and prices were reasonable. Beer list was awesome. Wished the kids weren't around so we could have stayed to try more. Would recommend for grownup snot so much for under 15.

My date and I really enjoyed our quick bite before theatre, I had really great Nachos which was way too much for one. Server advised most people share a platter. We sat outside on a lovely Fall evening. Most enjoyable people watching. 20% discount for Walnut subscribers.

Wonderful atmosphere, great staff and really tasty food! We had the wings, which were delicious, and curly fries. I would recommend both, though the wings were not the best I've ever had (they are advertised as Philly's best). Large selection of various beers, and the decorations give the place an authentic vibe.

I've been to Moriarty's a few times. I like the atmosphere and usually the food. However, the last time I was there I was disappointed. I ordered the Sherpard's Pie which I thought was a touch pricey at 16 dollars, but got it anyway. When it arrived it was small and pretty much all potato. I find Fergies around the... More

This place draws a pretty good crowd, and rightfully so. Great beer selection, decent food, and the wait staff if pleasant and efficient.

The night before, we tried and loved the Irish Pub across the street. Decided to try Moriarty's also. I had the bangers and mash, my wife had the quiche. Both were excellent. Service was good. Since we are seniors, we are not as interested in the bar social scene as we used to be. It is a very popular place... More
