We hit this place every time we come to Philly. The place is packed at 10am with people watching soccer. It is a blast and the bartenders are very attentive and friendly. We have never eaten here, however.

Best atmosphere -- standing room only for Barca v Real Madrid. And I mean for every 10 people sitting, there were 15 standing !! But great vibe for any soccer game - plus decent prices on beer.

These guys have the business clientele nailed. Quick service, a great menu and a friendly staff. Note that this is a pub, not a club, so you can actually talk and conduct business after hours.

Service okay. Food alright. Good Beer. Open early. Needed somewhere to go at 9 am before Nutcracker. It fit the bill for sure.
