    When the Liquor Control Board isn't shutting it down, it's an incredible place for libations. Unreal draft list that keeps changing and the cocktails, holy smokes, the cocktails.

    It took at least 10 minutes to get my beer and no apology. Not cool.

    Service was good. Food was good. Atmosphere was blah. Too expensive for the experience.

    Rustic decor to give you the feel like you are out on an European Safari complete with ragtime piano player..... One of the best spots in Philly!

    Food, yummy. Service, pleasant and prompt. Beef... The website says music starts at 9:30, so we made an 8 pm reservation. Music doesn't start til 10, so now we have to walk around and kill time. Boo.

    Truly excellent speakeasy. Grab a cocktail (or one of many, many beers) and a barrel to sit around. One of the best old fashioneds I've had, of many many hundred.

    This is an awesome dinner option. Venison, short rib, skate - it's all good! Have the tasting plate on the meat, 3 cheeses and the pickled saffron duck egg.

    One of a kind, European-like bar, right in downtown! Amazing decor and great international beer list. Lighting is very dim so bring your reading light!

    Do not go in when it's crowded. Unless you have a seat reserved. Way too hot no AC in the bar area.

    Beware they charge for extra bread. This was especially irritating since we had a cheese board. Cheese needs bread.

    Flames of troy is fantastic. The duck rillette is average and you can get better at monoprix or franprix

    The rustic decor and occasional ragtime piano player go great with Phoebe Esmon's cocktail creations at Farmers' Cabinet. They've even got two bars: beer to the left, cocktails to the right!

    The rabbit cassoulet is fantastic. So was the pork Avoid the woman bartender at all costs. Miserable and hates life.

    Imagine Ridley Scott directing a happy hour for beer snobs, cocktail historians, Jazz Age hep cats and righteous old drunks. It’s one of the strangest and most amazing places to drink at in Philly.

    Farmers’ Cabinet is now serving its own house beers. Brewer Terry Hawbaker’s beers are unique and excellent. They also tend to be a couple bucks cheaper than the other beers on the list. Read more
