    Obnoxious bartender & interior server. I've never felt so unaccomodated for wanting a glass of wine in my life. Worst bar ever.
  • Amy C.
    Get the cheese fries. Oh and apparently this is one of the top ranked travel bars?

    Skip it. Going here is just succumbing to the sadness of there not being another bar at the train station.

    Tasty cheesesteak option with pub mornay, onions, peppers, Gouda. Solid sandwich pick in 30th Street station.

    Worst possible service. Bartender was rude. Place claimed to open at 11 on their website but in reality they open at 11:30. Today they decided to open closer to 12.

    They have gluten-free items denoted on the menu and a decent selection at that. Nice surprise for this traveler. Also, very nice Bloody Mary!

    Don't order the "cheese steak". Also, I think they season the fries with cinnamon instead of bay seasoning..

    Great beers but food blows. Dry, sorry excuse for a cheesesteak, dry buffalo chicken sandwich, and the chickpea-edamame salad is surprisingly served hot & had a weird sweetness.

    Wide variety of beers -- I can't appreciate them all but leave time for service before your train because it's not always "fast food" but they try hard to meet your time needs.

    Excellent beer list, both bottled and tap. Bartenders play music off their iPods, and have pretty good taste in music. Come for the happy hour, you can get some delicious micros for dirt cheap.

    They will renember your drink. Get here before 7:30 for the happy hour snack menu. If you are running a little late the friendly staff will ask the kitchen to make an exception

    There's an unmarked locked restroom to the left of the bar. Look for a key attached to an old bar tap on a table by the door.

    While the beer list is great, check prices before getting anything bottled - they might be much more than you expect, even if you've had the same beer elsewhere.
