“Cheap eats and drinks.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

I do have to say the prices were reasonable. A very pretty place. We sat at the bar, the bartender hmmm let's just say he needed a little bit more people skills. The one thing that was very noticable to me was that the bar area was very dirty, looks like it hasnt been cleaned in a very long time, so that leaves me the question "what does the back of the house look like?"

“Good place for bar grub and a brew!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

This tavern has some charm and you feel like you are in a neighborhood watering hole despite being steps from Penn's campus. The menu has a nice variety but isn't overwhelming and the beer selection was solid.

Service was good and the price was very very reasonable!

“Nice Irish Pub & Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

A perfect place for lunch and a beer. We were in the area and stopped for a quick lunch. It was not crowded yet and service was just good. Our food was 'fine'.....what I expect in a college pub. It is located on a cute street and the back has a small area outside. I imagine it gets busy later in the day and eve.

“Horrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

Waited forever to be waited on. Drinks took forever to come. Waitress mixed up our order with someone else so was late putting our meal order into the kitchen. Then mixed up two orders at the table. Food was mediocre at best. This is the third time we have eaten here (our daughter goes to Penn so it is close). Two out of three times, the service has been awful. Will not return.

Good food. Nice atmosphere. College crowd. Bathrooms leave a Lot to be desired though. At least the 'mna's did. :?
