“Always a treat”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We've been going to Twisted Tail since shortly after they opened and have always enjoyed the mature atmosphere and live music. There aren't many bars/restaurants in the South St. area that provide such an impressive and ecclectic assortment of food and drinks. Hearing live jazz/bluess is a pleasant change from the typical music served up in other local bars. Great for just lounging and enjoying a good beer or cocktail.

“Great Resturant!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Live music every night which is hard to come by in Philadelphia. The service was great and attentive without feeling like I was being rushed through our meal. Our server knew which bourbons and whiskeys to recommend off of the extensive menu. And the food was excellent especially the pulled pork empanadas. A very good Restaurant in a tourist heavy area and I am a local and would definitely go back!

“Great Food, Beer, & Blues”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

After driving around for 30 minutes, I found a place to park on the street and found myself at the bar where the friendly bartender offered me a great IPA on tap. I looked over while a local Blues Band was playing my favorite tunes while people were dancing. Great atmosphere here and I was starving so I ordered an excellent bacon Cheeseburger with a 3- types of sauces to put on. The portion was so large, I needed to cut in half.

After my dinner I was curious to try one of the whiskey, since the Twisted Tail touts many whiskey's on the bar menu, and BTW offers flights. What better way to listen to the Blues with a smooth Maker's Whiskey on the rocks.

This is a fun place to meet up with friends or just hang at the bar to meet interesting people. I highly recommend this place!
