Always a great beer selection, and a great place for live music. It's a divey corner bar where everyone's welcome. The prices are reasonable, as well - be sure to check out the various specials.

This place is great! I've been going here for years now, and decided that a review was way overdue. The owner redid the place a few years ago, and it's totally transformed. The place has always had an amazing beer menu and live music, but now it's got great food and polished hardwood everywhere. Not the cheapest place, but that probably helps keep the underage crowd/recently-21 crowd out. They always have specials for game day, and live music on the weekends. You have to check this place out.

A friend dragged us here for open mic night and we loved it. We felt welcome, at home, and part of the crowd. There was som decent talent for open mic night, pretty cool. The beer selection is wild, and not only many and varied but has some really funks imports that you won't find anywhere else (including the best known beer places in Philly). Dawson street is Manayunk's best kept secret and a great time every visit! As always in Manayunk parking is a pain, but Dawson Street is so far down you have the best chance of getting a spot near them than the nouveau-trendy-superficial places elsewhere on the main drag. Dawson Street is a lot more genuine and real than the rest. Super cool place.
