    Go to Standard Tap for great beers and "gastropub" food (e.g. - gourmet pub food).

    The steak frites will make your belly happy. The beer list will make your heart sing!

    The chalkboard omelet specials can chase any hangover away, though a pint of local microbrewed beer won't hurt, either.

    One of Philadelphia's most beloved pubs. The locals rave about beer lists, duck salad and outdoor seating in the summer.

    What to get: The messy, drippy, delicious pork sandwich, the better-than-any-of-our-moms’ meatloaf, or the flaky, rich chicken potpie. Read more

    The bartenders are dicks. Don't try to have fun. If you want to bring friends then this is NOT the bar for you. Boo this bar.

    There isn't standard about this tap list - it's always sure to score some rare beers to cross of your wishlist. Brunch is great too!

    The corn fritters are perfection! The sauce it comes with is fantastic, and just at $5, it's a perfect small bite.

    So FYI you can't smoke on the roof... Just thought I'd help out the servers so they can spend more time being nice/helping guests than policing the smokers... Ice cream sunday melted.. #epicfail
