Nice Ambiance. Very good service. Only 8 taps with 2 additional pumps, but the choices are usually excellent to partially make up for this, and the bottle list is fantastic. Great food but low on selection. Sometimes can be a bit pricey, but not bad for the city. Iíve done takeout bottles.

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.

Stopped in on a slow rainy Sat morning. Definetly a cool local place for the neighborhood to hang. 8 or so taps with a cask available. Close to a hundred bottles on the list. Small bar holds 15-20 seats with a small dining room in the back. Clean nice atmosphere. They had a nice brunch menu, but I end up getting a burger and fries which was good. I thought prices were reasonable for the city. Bartender was friendly and knowlegable. Only a couple blocks off I-95, so pretty easy to get to. (Beer garden looked cool but it was raining so no one was hanging in there)... I hope to make it back!

Great spot to purchase lambics, has a nice selection of beers on tap and in bottles. The manager seemed a hint rude and a touch pedantic. Small spot, food looked good but did not try. Wasnít too crowded.

Good experience. Draft selections left a bit to be desired on this trip, but a consistently great bottle menu. I found a bottle of Cuvee du 7eme and enjoyed it with my chicken confit, which was good, but a bit soggy. This is uncharacteristic, as Ive been many times and find the food to be exceptional. Nice casual atmosphere, laid back crowd, and attentive yet down to earth service. Not every week, but Iíll be back when Iím in the area.

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.

Best Brisket in Philadelphia, and Mushroom Ragu as well. This place is about the food and the bar provided a solid base. Russian River Damnation was on tap when I went and I had a super fresh lager that night as well. Reviewed seperately. It can get busy I was told due to a food network tv show that filmed an episode here, but the folks working here were genuine and really nice. I wish I went here more.

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

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.

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.
