Visited May 31, 2014.
I had no preconceived notions of this place when I showed up but I was pleasantly surprised. Over all the tap selection wasnít amazing but it was good. I say pleasantly surprised because somehow they ended up with (what they claim was) one of only three kegs of the new Bullfrog Le Roar druiven beer. There was no line or anything. Maybe they didnít announce it? Or maybe no one cares about Bullfrog anymore. Who knows. All I know is that I got a 10oz glass of it and a seat at the bar. The beer was really good too. Awesome stuff. They have the bottle list up on the wall near the entrance opposite the bar. Itís ridiculously long but like most bottle lists there is some filler in there.
The bartender was preoccupied with serving customers but he did take a minute to tell me about the Bullfrog beer. I like this place. Itís got the Belgian bar theme going and itís less crowded than Monks and itís in the historic district. Beyond the Le Roar though I didnít see a lot on tap that Iíd come back specifically for. Still though, itís a nice place and would stop in again if in the area.

Overwhelming bottle list, impressive taps, Belgian food specialties. Dark and mysterious atmosphere adds to the vibe. When in Philly, a must stop.

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime, 30/11/13.
Entry is made via a large curtain into a dimly lit bar. The place had quite a few patrons despite having not long opened and a relaxed vibe ensued. I imagine this place is very different on a night time.
Good range of bottled beers, heavy on the Belgian front and not too much to interest me as someone seeking US brews. I picked up a new Yards beer in a bottle though. Tap selection wasnít too exciting.
Service was friendly and the guy knew his beers alright! Food looked great, wish Iíd had the steak and frites now !
Decent enough place that I wanted to check out, but as I knew it would be, too heavy on the Belgian front to make me want to rush back but if youíre from the US and are seeking Belgian stuff I can see why youíd love this place.

Similar to Monks, with a few less of the rarer selections, but the place is more open and therefore has a more comfortable atmosphere; the music is also a bit lower so you can carry on a conversation. Nice neighborhood bar/restaurant feel to the place and service was good at rush hour while sitting at the bar. Didnít partake of the food, but Iíll return to check it out.

Went here during happy hour on a weekday. It seems very much like a traditional belgian bar, somewhat dark with a lot of brewer swag on the walls. Service was good (it wasnít too busy) and the bartender was knowledgeable about his product. The selection was very good, with some special edition beers on tap, and a very good bottled selection, although they were missing a few breweries I happened to be looking for (mikkeler and struise). Very good american beer selection, anyway. Prices were reasonable, but happy hour means only a dollar off of stella & a few other lowly lagers.

Eulogy is another great bar in Philly with an exceptional beer menu, great taps, friendly service and a great location in old Philly. Belgian menu offered with moules and burgers.

The first time I went here, I almost F***ing died. There was a daytime special on a weekday that said if you brought in your baby, you got $1 off your beer. There were several moms and dads with strollers. Hilarious. The food is absolutely delicious (get the fried chicken). The draft list is interesting and the bottle list is extensive. The atmosphere is great. Donít skip this one!

Visited for the first time June 19, 2013, in the evening for supper. Note, I was not going well, a little tired I guess. Not bad as a place, very dark and small with a second floor. The lite tap is ok, nothing spectacular, but bottle is spectacular, even intimidating. Le menu de bouffe est plutŰt limitť. Itís ok, but Khyber Pass Pub close by is better!
