We walked to the tavern from our hotel as it was recommended by our hotel, and we decided to give it a try. It’s very close to the Sheraton University City which is good because being 36 weeks I didn’t want to walk far! The...More

Originally went to the White Dog Café next door... found their fare a bit too esoteric for our taste, so we came to this Pub and found the service and food to be wonderful and pricing reasonable.

The atmosphere was really great. The food was average, at best, and the service was not so great. I had the chicken sandwich and had to ask for the honey mustard that was supposed to come on the sandwich. The french fries were mediocre.

I've heard it can be very crowded on the weekends and during football games, but I visited on the Monday night and had a nice dinner and a few beers. No rush, relaxed environment.

Also great service and a good pub to relax in after a day sightseeing. Close to Penn University and other restaurants if you want 100% table service.

Came here with a group and sat in the basement. Service was good, but atmosphere wasn’t the best since downstairs. Food was good too. Would return

After multiple visits, it's easy to recommend this spot for its solid bar food, friendly fast ( but not rushed) service, good beer selection, super location near Penn campus, Drexel and U Penn hospital. Delicious loaded potato soup, great salads, burgers...everything we've tried so far...More
