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 didn’t feel welcomed here at all. My wife had been doing the driving on this tour and thus forgoing anything harder than water. That apparently didn’t sit well with the bartender who seemed (and expressed so verbally) quite bothered that we (or more accurately my designated driver) were ‘taking up bar space and drinking water’. 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 don’t have the ingredients for (they are a beer bar so the cocktail list isn’t 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.
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 (I’m 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 I’d definitely come back here again and the neighborhood is mostly irish and I had no problems at all
