Restaurant details
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Tavern is one of our most frequented pub/restaurants in the neighborhood. It is our tradition to eat here after arriving home from long road trips, but we also visit here for small, intimate celebration meals as well as with visiting family and friends.
The atmosphere is intimate. You walk past the pub/bar area to a seating area in the rear of the restaurant. The proprietor is very friendly, and usually greets and seats us. Of the menu items, I love the portabello sandwich and I usually order it with the goat cheese and beet salad. My husband loves the burger with sweet potato fries. The crab cakes are fabulous here. They also have a late-night menu; the petite filet is wonderful, as is the salad with chicken, blue cheese, apples and walnuts.

On a recent trip to NE Philadelphia we decided to give the modern hotels a pass and stayed at a great boutique hotel, the Chestnut Hill Hotel. We always ask where the best independant restaurants are located and there was quite a choice in this charming historic neighbourhood. We found this tavern about four blocks from the hotel and decided to give it a try for dinner . . . a great choice!
This place isn't very big so we had a drink at the bar while we waited for our table. The Owner was a charming host and the food was outstanding I had Duck Comfit that was spot on. This place was so good that on our second night in town we had to go back. I tried the back ribs . . . over the top. We'll definitely go back when we get to Philly again.
