    The beer tastes like they never rinsed the soap out of the glass.

    The service sucks. Itll take a lifetime to get anything, so dont order anything. Beer is warm, so dont order beer. Food is decent at best. Basically, DO NOT COME HERE.

    This place is terrible, they lost my id card & made me bribe them at the door because my shoes weren't black. The place is nothing special and not worth anyone's time. Philly has so much else to offer

    Do NOT order the nachos (horrible queso cheese sauce instead of melted cheese) or the artichoke spinach dip. It's a bunch of white sauce and no spinach. Service is also very slow. Nice venue tho

    Reading older tips made me a little leery but if you aren't a pretentious sob, this place is great! Our waitress was friendly, our food was hot and delicious and out beers were cold. Two thumbs up!

    You can do better than this frat hole. The guy who said the beer tastes like soap was right on the money. Generally populated by douchey crowds

    In the winter, do NOT sit at the bar end near the door. You will get blasted with cold air every 2 min. I swear they have no heat on at all.

    Burger & beer special for lunch (I don't see it advertised anywhere). Got a blue moon and a blue cheese, sautéed onion burger, which was INCREDIBLE, for $10. Total. Definitely recommend for lunch!!!!

    Got the Tilapia entree and it was very good. Service wasn't bad either, so guessing things have changed for the better in the last two years.

    Consistently terrible service. A medium burger tastes like burnt plastic. Overpriced for mediocre food.
