This is a great place with an incredible selection, with many hard to find beers. The decor is a little dingy, but that is the only downside.

I used to think the Publick House was the greatest beer place in the USA. The King is Dead....long live the new King! I don’t want to re-hash what other people have already said, but the selection is amazing, the service is friendly and prompt, the food is great, and Tom and his business partner really put an amazing place together. I wish they put this in New York I’d live there.

Gotta love Monk’s. Plenty has been said already so I will keep it short. Great ambiance, good selection of brews. I mean anyone who has Supplication on the list; that works for me. Food was good. A must stop for anyone in Philly who loves the beers.

Great place ... one of the best! Does indeed fulfill it’s rep & is everything stated positively in terms of selection, uniqueness & quality offerings. It’s also every bit as crowded as noted & that detracts. Try an off time & I think you’ll appreciate the brews, old bar ambiance & food even a bit more. Since I’m used to NYC pricing wasn’t that much of an issue for me in terms of what you can get though they certainly aren’t giving anything away either.

Rockin’ burgers, sweet sausage and cheese plate to start. Riidiculous beer menu. Missed the back bar though. A crap ton of belgian beer. Most are widely distributed so I headed to the American side of the menu to catch a Founders bottle I had not seen before. Also noticed a good lineup of Lost Abbey and Pizza Port bottles as well. Definitely check it if you are in town.

Next time I go, I am gonna get some dinner for sure. Standing 3-4 deep at the bar is not so much fun. But, WOW - what a great place. Awesome selection, food looked amazing, really nice.

Best place in U.S. i ever was. Spent 3 nights in it. My visit is from 2001. Never seen so many Belgium beers in 1 place outside Belgium

Philly’s premier Belgian restaurant. Been going to for years and turned onto high end beers. Decent food and great beer selection. Went last night for St. Patrick’s Day. Always lots of fun.

Stopped in recently and found Flying Fish Barleywine on tap! Also had several other quality Belgians and other brews on tap - I picked the back bar, which is a bit better for selection. Service was good as was the food - I grabbed a burger and some Pomme Frittes. Also had St. Bernadus 12 on tap and grabbed a bottle of Russian River Temptation to go. Pretty good service and very nice selection. Only drawbacks are price and parking, but these can’t keep a beer lover from enjoying a quality place in Center City! Oh yeah - and the staff is notorious for having attitudes, but the quality is usually at a level that allows you to look past this.

After an hour wait, and barely a seat at the bar, we were seated (at the greatest seat in the place, next to the restrooms!), just what you want to glance at while dining, a line waiting to pee! There was also a beer dinner in effect when we arrived, so for a Tuesday, it was more crowded then usual I presume. Once seated, we sat with our beer previously ordered at the bar. Beer selection absolutely amazing! (a bit pricey)..Service was friendly, food arrived in a timely manner. Ordered the fillet mignon, also amazing. Mashed potatoes were some of the best I’ve ever eaten and the veggies were grilled to perfection. I forced the dessert, and it was worth making space for. Would defiantly go here again, but with reservations called in. Proper glassware used as well. A highlight!!.....Michael Jackson was there and I shook his hand...:)

Service is a big problem in this place, lots of attitude and nothing to back it up except a big beer list that was out of stock most the time. Food was not impressive after a very long wait for it
