    Weekend brunch is awesome! I loved the Belgian waffles and the Bloody Mary. Came as part of an organization - City Tap House staff were fantastic to work with planning our event!

    Don't get stuck deciding on which of the 60 on-tap beers to try. This University City pub also boasts an exquisite rooftop bar, complete with fit pits and lounge areas. So cozy.

    "All the bartenders look lost." Yeah, it's kinda hard to remeber exactly where all 66 of the constantly changing beers are tapped. Give 'em a break and enjoy the selection.

    Chicken and waffles is AMAZING! Chicken is crispy and juicy, not greasy. Waffles were perfect with thyme butter and syrup made with stout.

    Their Free Range PA Turkey Burger was voted Best of Philly in 2011. It is a combination of avocado, brie, curry dijon aioli, lettuce, tomato and goes down the hatch for $14.

    An intriguing selection of draft beers and cool options from a New American menu are served at this gastropub, which attract a diverse crowd that comes to see and be seen.

    If you're looking to sit at the fire pits everyone in your party needs to buy an entree. If not, just chill at the bar and talk with your neighbors. Everyone was really friendly.

    Came here on a late night date and the atmosphere and vibe was great! A little to cold to enjoy the fire pit but Spring is almost here and I'll be there.

    This is known for an absurd number of craft beer faucets, but we also love the massive firepits that sit outside of The Radian, overlooking a bustling Walnut Street. [Ultimate Al Fresco List] Read more

    Wow. Loved this spot! Amazing food and drinks at a sports bar for good prices... 60 beers on tap is always a plus

    A popular place with great drafts. But, the bartender couldn't tell a double imperial stout from an amber. Maybe the beer list is a bit too big...

    You really can't go wrong with the beer selection here...try something new. If you're in the mood for cheap and easy, the Tartufo pizza is amazing!

    Best beer selection in Philly, and the revamped dinner menu is killer. Worth the trip even if you live in Old City/Center City.

    50+ beers on tap. leave a tip for what beer, as a beer-meister, is good (or not so good) to the best of your ability. (on a scale of -5 to +5) +5 is 'stellar', 0 is 'balanced,' -5 is 'not so much'.

    The Pancho mussels are the best. They are spicy and have a delicious broth. You also get a big amount that will fill you up.

    For some reason this place doesn't give you bread. It's weird and dumb. The draft list is extensive and most of the food is delicious though.

    Went there in the winter so it was too cold to hangout outside on the deck. But overall a large indoor and outdoor space to grab a drink. Doesn't make you feel claustrophobic.

    They give you a sample of anything you'd want to try that's on tap. Take advantage of that.

    Best brunch ever on Sundays - don't miss the amazing bread basket and the Bloody Marys - yum.

    It was stuffy and uncomfortable even though there was hardly anyone in there. Food was also incredibly expensive. Saving grace for this palce was happy hour drink specials. Don't know if I'll be back.
