This was our first stop after checking into the hotel just around the corner upon our arrival in Philly for the first time. You enter the place via a stairway off Sansome Street.

We arrived there about 11:15 a.m. even before they opened the kitchen, but the bartender was really friendly and found a table where we could begin our tasting of their beers. We sampled about 7 beers in all, including a double IPA that was really hopped-up, much like a west coast San Diego style IPA. We loved it and felt right at home. The "Grog" was quite unusual. Everything we tried was tasty.

When it came time to order food, I asked the bartender about the roast beef (french) dip. He said some prefer it over the Philly Cheese Steak. That was enough to get my attention. He was right. It was an exceptional sandwich, just enough food so that we were energized to begin our walking tour of the historic sites to the east of the city.

We visited Noddinghead again that night. We ordered a pitcher, thinking it would be less expensive, and realized that we had paid about $4.00 a pint. Then I recalled how lunch too was a bit pricey. It's a great place. The service is friendly and they know their beers, but pay attention to your tab. It can get costly.

Went here on 8/9 during my latest trip to Philly. This place is average at best, and i wasn't all that impressed with their beers. They had a sour wheat beer which was very blah, bu their porter did seem to be pretty good. Service was fine in regards to getting a beer, but some of the waitresses were doing shots and drinking on the job. Seemed pretty unprofessional, and the place itself did not impress me.
There are a ton of other breweries / brew pubs/ bars in Philly worth seeing over this place. Not the worst, but probably would not stop here again.
