The food is OK but the service is really bad. A lot of mistakes in our orders, slow service... The food is ok, nothing to talk about, but missing a lot of traditional Irish food.

It doesn't have the authentic Irish pub feel, but it does have the Authentic Irish-American Sports Pub feel, which isn't a bad thing. Good Clean pub for a pint of brew. Irish Pale ales are pretty hip in America.

The baked potato soup was outstanding, salad was very generous, Philly cheese steak was very good. Service was good.They even had sweet iced tea. Bathrooms weren't easily accessible and music was a bit loud, but otherwise a great place to dine.

There was nothing great or bad about this bar. It seemed like an average neighborhood bar, with average prices for a bar in Philadelphia.

After waiting 15 minutes (not a problem) for a rare burger and a medium-rare burger, our server brought us two well-done burgers. She apologized and said the cook wouldn't cook a rare burger. When we said we didn't want it, the manager came over and...More

Nice little Irish Bar along the infamous South Street in Philly. Decent selection of craft beers, however for an Irish Bar they don't pour a slow Guinness. The Bruschetta appetizer and Paddy chips were excellent.
