A short walk up a flight of stairs will lead you to the Nodding Head. Right away, you a greeted by a glass case, filled with bobble heads. The space is fairly big and would work well if you are going with a larger group. All the beer served here is their own and it is good. From the Grog, an English style brown ale to an IPA or even a Berliner Weisse, they have quite a few styles covered. Food looked good and was moderately priced. The staff was friendly and helpful. Helped out with directions of the local area for us visitors. We would certainly stop by again.

Finally made it here on a recent trip to Philly. You have to climb up a set of narrow stairs to the second floor where the brewpub is. Definitely an old place re-purposed. It has a nice old wood bar. Old wood floors. It is a little dark, but has a big old skylight in it. The beers were good. We definitely enjoyed them. We did have any appetizers, but the dinners we had were all well received. The fries were right up there with Monk’s. I had the salmon, and it was excellent. There were also very positive reports on the French dip and the meatloaf. Definitely worth the trip!

Checked this place out on a recent visit to Philly, very knowledgeable staff eager to talk about beer! This combined with the interesting rotating offerings on draught made it a worthwhile visit. I didn't have a chance to try the food on this visit but will next time. Definitely worth dropping by this place if you are in the area, you won't regret it.

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.
