“Gem of a Find in Philly!!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

What a lucky fnd this was... Got into Philly right at rush hour and had a miserable hour trying to find the hotels. Decided to walk around and see what was available. Not the greatest option in acity that seems to roll up the sidewalks at 7:00pm. But we found ourselves looking at the Clothespin sculture at Market & 15th and sawa asign for a deli. Lucky for us the deli was closed but we saw the American Pub on the lower level.

OMG! It was great. Granted, they had a limited menu after 4:00pm but as they are in an office building and really need to advertise more - it was still a wonderful meal. I got a burger. It was fresh made and cooked to perfection. My co-worker wanted shrimp salad. She expected the usual shrimp in mayo but got a gresh greens salad with a dozen large shrimp. She loved it.

The staff was friendly and helped us with being able to see the city as we only had another night and no time duringthe day. Our waitress mentioned working at another restaurant (known for their cheesecake) which got us thinking dessert. That particular restaurant isn't downtown but she directed to another place also known for their desserts.

I hope that when you are in Philly, you'll give them a try - they deserve the business and you won't be disappointed.
