    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!

    "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.

    Great brunch on Sunday's! Had the pork burger which was really good and half of my family ordered The Big Chick and they loved it. Mom said the hash browns were awesome.

    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.

    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.
  • Stephen C.
    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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...

    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'.

    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.
