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.

Great beer, great food, great service. I had a lamb sausage and chick pea stew off their specials menu and it was delicious. Perfect Fall meal with a glass of beer. Comfortable place. Friendly service staff.

Bridget Foy's used to be a consistently good restaurant, popular with both locals and tourists to the
Society Hill area. The quality of the food has declined markedly in the last year or so. My wife and I had a mediocre meal here six months ago, which we assumed was an anomaly. After a recent dinner, though, I think the quality issues are more fundamental. My fried chicken special was way over salted, with some pieces over cooked and others bloody. The only accompanying vegetable was a boiled green of some kind. Dessert was dry and tasteless.

Service on the other hand is always courteous, attentive, and efficient.

The food is great and nothing beats sitting on the deck and people watching. The fried chicken is my favorite. They always have a great selection of beer.

Bridget's is our go-too neighborhood restaurant for good food in simple surroundings. Her short-ribs are amazing. Great Friday afternoon martinis as well. All hail Bridget!

I have been going to this restaurant for over fifteen years. It has been consistent - in food quality, in service and in ambiance - for all of these years.
