Stopped in for a few beers before a wedding down the street, The server was very attentive for an excited group of wedding goers and willing to help chose a beer for those overwhelmed by the great draft list.

Standard Tap used to be a favorite with great salads and sandwiches which included to-die-for pulled pork, wild boar, portabella mushrooms and, on occasion, even roast lamb. On this trip, sandwiches included hamburger, meat balls, cheddar cheese, and muffaletta. We should have known right then to just have a beer and move on. The guy next to us had a... More

Great interior, very eclectic, comfy. Went for brunch; nice selection of menu items, a bit pricy but very fresh & tasty. Pretty extensive beer list and some unique cocktails (recommend the cucumber fizz). Jess & Kaitlyn did a great job with our large party! Would gladly visit again.

Eh. Nothing special. Most beers are strange, flavoring IPAs, which is fine, there needs to be good classic options too. No choice of burger - there's only one and you can’t change anything on it, and it comes with green tomato. The rest of the food was not amazing, but not bad. Clams were chewy, the smelts weren't crispy. Server... More

... But definitely a must be! Its a bit outside the center of Phillie but always worth a cab ride. I loved the morbid charme of the pub - outside and inside. Still cosy and simple - great service with fun and humor, good food and a great selection of drafts. We enjoyed utmost - its a place to have... More

Located in Northern Liberties area, great place to hang out with friends. Had the infamous Chicken Pie and Pork of July Empanadas which were both delicious! Paired it with the Tired Hands Stop Today Porter. The Porter has a hint of coffee taste to it and I recommend it if you love your coffee. Service was good and the crowd... More

We learned of this place on DDD. Guy featured the chicken pie and it did not disappoint. It is loaded with juicy chicken, vegetables, no gravy, and wrapped in a great tasting flaky crust. Beware, it is piping hot when you get it and takes a while for it to cool down. We also had the crab sandwich which was... More

Had a great fathers day dinner along with a sons birthday. The drum sticks are a great choice, delicious. Creme brûlée was a great dessert to end the night.

One of the most delicious meals I've ever had – the kielbasa and sauerkraut are phenomenal. The staff were friendly and helpful, but gave us our space. We were able to sit right down on a Thursday night before seeing a show at the Electric Factory. Overall fantastic experience; cannot recommend Standard Tap enough!

Went here after the Phillies game...second visit to this taproom. It's stepping back in time to the old corner tap rooms of my dad's era. Very casual, plain wood tanbles and booths, dark wood interior. Menu is very different and very good, 2 of our party had the burgers (huge) which came with delicious fries, 2 had the chicken pot...
