They have a decent permanent menu, a long list of specialties, and an exceptional value in a 2-pound lobster on which they recently reduced the price from 19 to $17. Overall, I rate it as a good value.

Stopped by Downeys a few weeks ago for a few Beers. This particular Saturday they had special on Lobster, went down South Street partaking in a few more Bars and many more Beers. Came back to Downeys , had the Lobster, it was great. $ 15.00 Bucks , 2 pound Lobster. What a great meal, and deal!

I've been here several times over the years...always thoutght it was a decent pub. But as of late, it's become expensive, and the quality of the food and service have not kept pace with cost...but rather they've gone the other way...I had fish and chips...mushy fish and limp fries...not the best to be certain...I'll find better locations to spend my $

I have lived in Philly all my life. After eating at most places in center city, and many in Jersey and the Pa suburbs, I never felt the need to express my opinion about a place until now. Downey's is a place that I passed many many times but just never stopped in for a meal. I always thought it would be good because it has been there so long. There is no air conditioning, so we waited, at the bar, for an open window table. We went to the bar for a drink, while we waited-that was the first warning that we should not have stayed- the bar tender was at the opposite end of the bar talking to someone and ignoring the bar. We had to call her to order drinks. I ordered a Miller High Life-I got a Miller light. Our next warning was when three tables emptied and it took fifteen minutes to prepare one and seat us. The menu was outragiously over priced for the dishes they offered. Ham and cabbage-no bread, no other veggies-15.00. my friend got sliced corned beef floating in some cabbage-a dish that should be no more than 8 or 9 dollars-I've had it with bread and another veggie for 11.00, but it was real ham. I ordered fish and chips. I have had fish and chips in every Irish bar in center city with never a complaint, this fish and chips was greasy, and refrozen fish that is not flakey but mushy.
