This cozy pub is a good place to watch world cup soccer. The place is a tad dark/dim inside but that allows one to focus on the game and conversation with friends.

We loved this place. It had that great old school feel with a old weathered bar. We only had beers but the food looked reasonably priced. We will be back the next time we stay in center city.

A solid choice near Rittenhouse Square. Great selection of brews and pub fare a cut above, and in an environment where you can actually conduct a conversation. Burgers were excellent, but more sophisticated menu choices are available too.

Went here for dinner and drinks. We waited about 5 minutes for a table because there is not a lot of non-bar seating. The place did feel a little cramped, but the vibe was great and the service was good. I ordered the pulled pork...More

We stopped in here after a show at the Kimmel and sat on the second floor. It's a little dark inside, but the service was very firendly, and the food was really good. Nothing fancy - comfort food.

Great neighborhood pub. Great Irish food plus pub grub. Wednesday is trivia night and most lively. Service is excellent even when really busy as on trivia night.

Great laid back vibe where you can go for dinner or just drinks at the bar. Great selection for beer and cocktails as well.
