    Great beer and just as good food! Definitely opt for the bone marrow; it's to die for! *drool* Pass on the scrapple hush puppies tho. They were overly sweet w/ barely any scrapple: reminiscent of cake

    Another one of Philly's omni restaurants that offer really great, innovative vegan dishes. Not a ton of vegan options, but always something interesting and tasty. This is a cool beer spot.

    A great out of the way bar / lunch spot with a well provisioned draft list. The black bean burger is superb. Though close to the UPenn campus, it's mostly a hipster spot. ($10-20pp)

    Disco Fries! They almost taste like poutine and make me want to dance! Avoid the mini stuffed shrooms and the eggplant sandwich- both lackluster. Don't forget $3 local happy hour 5-7p!

    Happy hour is wonderful here. It runs from 5-6:30. Get a seat before 4:50 before the rush comes through! And order the brussels sprouts for $4.

    Occasionally, you will hear Westerberg's awesome take on Burl Ives' "Mr. Rabbit," and when you do, it will then be the only bar you will have ever heard that song.

    Highly recommend coconut carrot soup. Good size portions, really good selection of beer and the server was helpful and patient. It's really dark in here though.

    Great local beers! Can't beat $3 beers for happy hour. I loved their Namaste beer and the fried Brussels sprouts were awesome!

    This place won't even serve you a Croque Madame if you're under 21. Which is a damn shame because the Croque Madame is really effing good.

    If you want to get fancy, add a fried egg from the burger "fixin' bar". Pick any local beer on tap to pair with your burger. Read more

    If you like having drinks with mice, then this is the place for you. When I told the bartender, she told me to keep as a pet. :(

    Solid beer selection and excellent service. Try the specialties from Yard's or, for a more exotic treat, the lilikoi brew.

    I'd rather drink at the Bottle Shop next door and I'd rather eat at Honest Tom's down the block. Nothing wrong with this place though.
