Description: Neighborhood hotspot and family business Bridget Foy's has been delighting patrons with its tantalizing take on modern American cuisine for more than three decades. Since the recent appointment of Executive Chef Daniel James, the menu has incorporated a number of exciting additions alongside perennial favorites like the Standard Burger, which can be personalized to taste with a variety of toppings, from fried onions to a fried egg. The lively bar is a welcome place to sample a rotating selection of local microbrews on draft, build your own Bloody Mary during brunch, or sip on a winter warmer during the cooler months. Alternately, summer in the city is best experienced over a leisurely meal in Bridget Foy's legendary outdoor café - the perfect perch for people watching among the hustle and bustle of one of Philadelphia's most vibrant districts.

Very good food. Nice combination of flavors. Good value as well. Lamb meatballs over cous cous is a bomb!

I dined at BFs alone out on the porch while my daughter was at a concert. The salad I had was one of the BEST I've ever eaten: had a whole mini wheel of goat cheese, toasted pistachios, beets, homemade dressing-- fantastic! The dessert I ordered was quite unique and so good I ordered another to go so my daughter could taste it: I forget the name but it had a layer of vanilla pudding, crushed oreos, and fresh whipped cream with a layer of salted caramel. To. die. for. Excellent beer menu as well.

There is a bus stop right at the restaurant's door (#40).
I visited at lunchtime and sat outside. The waiter was friendly and the ambience was like an outdoor cafe some where in Europe.
I ordered the Caesar salad with crispy chicken added. The restaurant makes its own Caesar dressing. It had a hint of anchovy but too much lemon juice. I would have preferred more anchovy.
My partner had the duck tacos which were quite tasty. Their chicken wings were coated with a honey based sauce and served with a blue cheese dip. Tasty.
Would I return. Yes. I enjoyed the people watching opportunity at this spot.

We were there in July and got a fireworks show to watch. The food was very good and they had a full bar with many tap beers. It is at a corner, so fun to watch cars such as the Ferrari and Ducati that went
