Pretty cool place in a nicely quirky pocket of downtown. Small, dark, and woody, just my flavor. Bellied up with my pal to watch some World Cup, and was very pleasantly surprised to find a range of excellent craft brew, heavily local. Enjoyed it and would prioritize a return visit.

Visited this place fairly early on a Saturday evening, and it was decently crowded, but still with some seats available as well. Darker looking place, more dive style than classy. Bartenders were friendly and seemed to know their beer, and the selection was pretty solid as well. We enjoyed our visit.

Nice selection of crafts and regionals on the 20-odd taps and two casks, plus very good happy hour prices in this comfortable neighborhood atmosphere bar/restaurant. Somewhat varied but old-school blues and punk music selection in the background was nice at first, but later became tedious, loud and overbearing dinosaur rock. Good service at the bar and an excellent, somewhat eclectic southern and Cajun menu. The catfish poí boy, wild mushroom etoufee, fried okra, and hush puppies with molasses butter we had were all great and nicely priced for the quality.

Donít let the name fool you, this is a traditionalmold inner city bar with lots of wood an great gargoyles. Oh, and Cajun food, if you can believe that. Twenty well chosen beers with plenty of local stuff. Definitely worth a visit.

Visited for the first time June 19, 2013, in the afternoon. We were supposed to go to Triumph close by, but they were close until 4 PM, so we whent there and Iím happy we did. Itís a bit like Monks Cafe in Centrel Philly, but bigger. Very good tap list, with two on cask. Service was equally good, very friendly bartender. The best beer bar in the old part of Philly.

I was there for lunch on a Wednesday. The place was empty except for a trio of suited workers and two grannies. It soon got busier. Pretty sure the ambiance is more alive at night. The food is awesome, southish style, nothing subtile. I had their fried macín cheese po-boy (sandwich) with a pint of Bellís Hopslam. It kinda made my day.

Stopped in early on a Saturday night. Sat at the bar. Fairly dark and pretty loud place although it wasnít even 7pm. Food was good although I did not try one of their more complex specials they had on the board. Tap list wasnít too bad, didnít check bottles. Had a good balance between bar food and beers although the atmosphere was distracting (guess Iím getting a bit old for places like this).

Stopped in to grab some lunch while visiting the city. Sort of a dive-ish kind of bar, dark and not very well lit. Nice selection on tap and I went with a Sculpin. Menu looked decent but I asked the bartender for a recommendation and I went with the Chicken Po Boy with a side of Mac. Good stuff. Cool bar.

This is the first craft beer bar in the Philly area. It has a great corner tavern feel and a staff that makes it like that. The beer selection is always top notch, lots of locals and always a couple of rare ones for the east coast anyway. The food is always good, try the bacon pop corn. The prices are decent for philly. I will stop every time when in Old City.
