The wife and I stopped into Dock Street on a recent trip to Philadelphia. First off - I highly recommend going here in daylight as the surrounding neighborhood would be a bit scary at night. I say this in all seriousness. While I hail from a small town now, I have grown up and lived in places like Flint and Detroit, Michigan and was still uneasy at 1-2pm in this part of town. Ok - now about the place: it appears to be located in an old fire station, but the waiter didn't really seem to know exactly. It has a bit of an eccentric feel to the place; perhaps I got this feeling from the wait staff though. The beer in the sampler that we ordered was of decent quality, but nothing really jumped out at me: good or bad. They did have a lot of varieties available though. While I can say that my experience at Dock Street was not an unpleasant one, neither the beer nor the atmosphere were good enough for me to return especially with the current location. I think the proprietors should consider the location and their target market.

Atmosphere- People packed in like cattle and hipsters abound. I am actually kinda cool with being packed in, I have eaten at some great Korean and Vietnamese places which have the ambiance of slaughterhouses, they made up for it the food, this place didn't.

Food- I cook better pizza at home in my oven, not a joke or an exaggeration. If I can do good in my shitty low rent housing oven, then these guys should be able to do great in their pizza oven. The sad truth is that they don't and apparently can't.

Beer - I have tasted numerous home brews that were better than the thin and watery substances being passed of as beer at this place. When you make your claim off of beer and call yourself a brewery, you should at least have decent beer. This stuff might have come out of a giant Mr. Beer in back, it was no joke that bad.

Overall- Philly is the best place for beer lovers on the East Coast, period! That being said there are so many places in Philly that do an amazing job, why would you waste time at this place? If it was just a hipster haven I could overlook that (like Local 44), if it just had poor food and kick-ass beer I would forgive it that, If it had poor beer at a cheap price and kick-ass food I would down delicious pizza with cheap IPA. Unfortunately, Dock Street has none of the redeeming qualities and all of the negatives.
