This place was close to where I was staying & the reviews were good so I thought I'd give it a try. Bad decision! I ordered the Fish & Chips which is supposed to be a featured item. It was okay. Large portion. I did like the cole slaw. The fish was ordinary cod. It was good. The fries average... More

Had lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Not very busy -- University out of session -- had a good mix of sandwiches and a couple of nice beers. Low key -- a good spot. Will be back

We were to gather near Franklin Field for a pregame tailgate - but the weather was raw- rain and snow...in April... So we moved out group indoors to New Deck Tavern. A wonderful spot as pubs go- friendly and attentive staff and the food ,although typical bar food was great for quick eats. There is outdoor seating - but with... More

Came here the weekend before St Pattys Day and the bar was packed. We were seated and served right away. There was a live band. The food was great the only downfall was that there were as many children as adult.

Good place to get a drink, large choice of beers. Very basic food but inexpensive, what is quiet rare in Penn

This is the perfect lunch place to pair with a visit to Independence Hall. I met my sister there, and we had a terrific time, and some very delicious pot pies. Our waitress Alyssa (dressed in Colonial garb), was especially friendly and helpful.

We stopped in here while visiting U Penn's campus. It's a great little pub with typical pub fare. I always believe in getting pub food, like a burger and fries, but I would actually recommend the quesadillas here. The burgers and fish and chips were also good. Friendly service. Plan to be there for a good hour.

Love this place. Too many good nights spent here. They have pitchers, they have good burgers, and they have $1 taco thursdays (I think it was thursday though tuesday adhere's better to idiom). TV's galore if you don't want to hear what your table mates are gabbing about. And it's a marked improvement over the other pub in west philly,... More
