4.25/5  rDev -3.8%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 5 | food: 4.5 | $$$

It was a Friday night...so this place was VERY crowded and noisy. Hard to move around. But, even with the crowd, I was impressed that the service was still good. Bartender was relatively attentive and the waitress took care of us. No complains given the crowd. We were seated quickly.

We ended up in the back bar where they had 8 beers on tap. An endless supply of choices from bottles. Really, who could ask for more?

Place is casual with wood tables. Our many problem is that it was so dark at our table we could barely see the menue. For some reason, all the other tables had lights over them, but now ours.

Food was nice:
Sausage and cheese platter: very good
Fries: good
Trout: very good
Monk's mussels: very good

Overall, a very nice experience. I won't knock them for the overcrowding and noise...that's what happens when you go to a popular bar on a Friday night. Will definitely go again when I'm in Philly.
