    Great service! Decent beer list. AMAZING food. Busy dive bar atmosphere. Short rib grilled cheese and wild mushroom bisque were heavenly. Old Bay fires were cooked perfectly. Love!

    The Angus burger is good, but watch out for that pepper. It'll get you good if you're not ready.

    The angus burger is incredible. Excellent craft beer selection. And DO NOT forget to order the duck confit potato skins because they're to die for.

    Food is great. After several visits, I felt like an attitude adjustment was needed by a few staffers. Still like it

    Meatloaf Sandwich. Meatloaf, bacon, crispy mushrooms, fried egg, cheddar, and tomato glaze on white bread. There’s also a pretty wicked vegan sloppy joe for non-meat eaters.

    The grilled cheese is magical. It has a hint of truffle oil? Or just really great cheese? Try it!

    Stay clear of the ginger ale. It tastes like a combination of a forest fire and cough syrup.

    The burger has been praised. The meatloaf sandwich too. Same for the vegan specials. But have you had the chicken frankie? The Passyunk Avenue bar excels at that too.
