McGillin's Old Ale House

First visit this week, before a show. Nice find a bit off the beaten path (down an alley near 13th and Sansom). Very reasonable prices for downtown. Clearly a local favorite among the younger crowd. Good bar food in a historic pub. Nice place to hang before a show. Will definitely go back again.

We liked it so much we ate there for both lunch and dinner! Lovely fire to keep everyone warm and the atmosphere was just great. A real gem. The food is sooooo cheap too. It's definitely comfort food which is perfect when you want home style cooking. We had the Philly cheesesteak, chicken nachos, Shepards pie and meatloaf. All winners but the nachos were a tad dry. Definitely recommend a mcGillans!

McGillins is Philadelphia's oldest and most famous pub - and is definitely my favorite! I have been going there since college, and continue to frequent for a pint, for lunch or happy hour! The atmosphere is amazing with tons of Philadelphia memorabilia and in the winter months, a roaring fireplace is the focus of the room. The food is deliecious, and CHEAP!! The 25 beers on tap are another awesome reason to visit - featuring mostly region beers, the best being The McGillin's Ale and Lagers! Enjoy!
