We had dinner for four eight main courses and 4 desserts. They were wonderful so we had plenty of food to take home for the next day. The atmosphere was lovely. The service was excellent. The drinks were wonderful.

We sat at a booth inside and it had the perfect pub feel. You could also talk. Loved the coconut shrimp. I had an excellent salmon dish. Nice selection of beers on tap. Will definitely go back the next time I'm in Philly.

Beautiful hotel, ideal spot for outdoor dining and people watching, ok service, but the food has never held up. I've gone about 1x/year over the past 10 and have been disappointed 8/10 times. Many great choices up and down 'the Hill', so stick to booze...More
