Pretty decent place. Stopped by on Saturday afternoon, was surprisingly packed...college football games on. Dark interior. Not a large location, but plenty of bar seats. Maybe 9 or 10 tables in the rear.

12-15 beers on tap. Yards, Ithaca, Great Lakes, a few other craft beers and a few macros. Nice bottle selection, but nothing too extreme. Plenty of Stoudts and Yards.

A pretty good pub menu, several variations of chicken cutlet sandwiches. I had the provolone and broccoli. Fries were greasy but tasty.

Overall, a cool spot. Tight seating in the back and perhaps not the greatest craft brew place around, but good all around.

Nice layout with good number of seats at bar and tables. Chalkboard display clear with draft choices and abv. Several flat screen tv's with different sports on and a friendly, spirited unpretentious vibe on a Friday night. Talked with two friendly and knowledgeable staff members and they helped me find a type of beer for my mood(which was after work DIPA). They had about 15 beers on tap of good variety. I work near here some days so will hang out here again for sure.

Decent place. Went on a Friday after work. Not packed, but fairly busy. Plenty of bar seats. Bartenders were so friendly and knowledgeable about both the food and the beer. Pretty dark, relaxed atmosphere. Wouldn't go there on a date, but cool for drinks with a few friends. The beer selection is solid but not anything special for what's being served in a great beer city like philly these days. Overall it was the service that made the place.
