The third leg of our Philly Beer Raid tour, which saw Local 44 and Resurrection Ale House prior to arriving here. Based on the tap list I could see the similarities between the three, but unlike the first two, we didnít feel welcomed here at all. My wife had been doing the driving on this tour and thus forgoing anything harder than water. That apparently didnít sit well with the bartender who seemed (and expressed so verbally) quite bothered that we (or more accurately my designated driver) were Ďtaking up bar space and drinking waterí. Aside from just feeling this was out of line and irresponsible (seriously, what good bar or bartender chastises a DD?), there were open bar seats, and it was still early in the afternoon. The place was picking up a crowd, but there was ample bar space available, and plenty of other table seating nearby. Stayed for two quick beers here but left put off due to the demeanor of the bartender. Only unhappy bartender we encountered in 5 days and about 15 different places.

Went there for dinner on a Friday night so of course it was packed. We offered to sit outside but you can only order food from the hotdog truck when in the Beer Garden. That is not a put down on the joint but we wanted dinner so opted to wait about 20 minutes for a table in the fairly small dining room. Bartender was a good guy and nice to my girl even though she kept trying to order cocktails they donít have the ingredients for (they are a beer bar so the cocktail list isnít extensive). The fish and chips was outstanding, as were the fried pickles. The beer selection was very nice and I had a Blind Pig and a cask Seven Giraffes. The vintage bottle list was fairly extensive with a lot of nice offerings. I will definitely go back and check out the beer garden hot dog truck.

Visited this place during Philly Beer week 2011 - canít remember for which event though. Nice bar, however Iíll need to return for a proper review as the place was super crowded.

Went on a sat night around 7pm the wait was 30-45 mins for a table ... looks like a neighborhood corner bar front room is rectangular with a long bar back room is equal in size but is filled with all of the tables for dinner service .... small but great taplist with a mix of local, micro and european with a couple of aged rarities .... bartenders were awesome and prompt for it being so crowded ... the bottle list of 200+ beers had a nice mix of styles and vintages and you get 20% off for takeout brews (scored a Thomas Hardy 08 ale) .... the food well there is a small warning that they fry everything in 100% peanut oil so beware if your allergic (Iím not thank God) the fried pickles, cheese plate and chicken fried chicken were excellent and everyone else in my party loved their food too .... brews were like 5-6 bucks and food ranges from 8 bucks to 16-19 for entrees .... overall Iíd definitely come back here again and the neighborhood is mostly irish and I had no problems at all

Stopped into Memphis Taproom for brunch for the first time last weekend. A little smaller than I was expecting it to be but no big deal. Vibe was pretty good. Lots of people sitting around having breakfast and enjoying themselves. I really wanted to check out the beer garden but it wasnít open yet, I will check it out next time for sure. Once we were seated in the back dining room we promptly ordered some breakfast and a few beers. I got the Red Rooster, it is essentially the typical breakfast stepped up a notch, and it was awesome. I had two beers while I was there, a Ballast Point Bourbon Barrel Sea Monster on cask and a Round Guys Berliner Weiss. The Ballast point was awesome, the round guys....not so much. I took a look at the bottle list and it was pretty impressive, also pretty expensive. Service was really good. Our server came to check on us multiple times throughout the meal, offering refills and getting us new beers. She even offered to replace my beer when it wasnít up to par but I decided to suffer through it. Overall a really awesome bar that I will definitely return to in the future.

Decent selection of draft beers, backed up with a good bottle list. Friendly quick service with some pretty good food.

We came here on Thursday night of RBSG 2011. Got a big long table in the back and just started ordering stuff off the bottle list. Food was pretty tasty as well. Great service.

I liked this place a lot. We were visting from chicago, and they had Half Acre (a local chicago phenom) on draft. Apparently Philly is the only other city where it is available. because the owner is originally from here. They donít have that many taps, but they are all very carefully selected. The second night we were there, there was a food truck in the beer garden. The location is a little out of the fray and lots of locals hang out here. I will definitely be back here multiple times every time Iím in Philly.

Stopped in on a Saturday night about 7pm. I think it goes without saying that it was super crowded and we waited about an hour for a table for 5. Jam packed up front at the bar so I canít even say it was a comfortable wait. Limited, but high quality selection of brews on tap. The food was good, but nothing to right home about. I probably will not be back unless Iím in the neighborhood.
