    A valuable gem in the Northeast

    You can't find another bar in the Northeast like this. The interior is insane - attention to every detail down to the pics of old time Philly. The crabcakes and Monkeytini's are awesome, and the courtyard outside is comfortable and relaxing. Great place to watch any sporting event, or just a chill lunch. No, I don't own the bar - I'm just a fan. Good times to be had at this place.

    Need a new cook

    They need a cook who does not burn things.

    Loved it!

    I went a week ago with the girls and had a nice time. I took my boyfriend this Sunday and had an even better time. Outside seating is in a great cozy enviroment and the change of scene is just what we needed. The crab dip is out of this world! We also had lunch. My burger was okay. I wanted it cooked medium and it was well done but this happens at most places I go to. My boyfriend got a cheesesteak and it was delicious. I had a martini and the price was reasonable for the size. We also had the carrot cake for desert and it was delicious! I am going back next Sunday for the live entertainment!

    Didn't like breakfast

    Went there last Sunday. It was a beautiful day and we went there for breakfast We sat outside because of the atmosphere which is very pleasant. I asked for eggs over lite. They were too well done. The home fries were from a frozen package of potatoes and the rye toast was very hard and cold by the time I got it. The best part was our coffee glasses were dirty looking. (I sure hope they weren't dirty. I asked the waitress about them and she said they were stained. They either need a new dishwasher or (as my husband suggested) throw them away and buy new glasses for coffee. I'm sure they have a good bar business but if they want people to come back to eat, I suggest getting a new chef.

    Love it

    Having had breakfast and lunch there I have to say that we have never been disappointed. There are times when the bread in the mornings has been a bit hard but that could be the type of bread that they use. I have had lunch (Ceaser Wrap) that was accompanied by a nice spring salad and it was delicious. And I have also had the home made potato chips and they were good. The atmosphere in the place is very comfortable and the wait staff is great. They are always ready and eager to serve you. There are always a number of people there on the weekends so a lot of people realize it is a great little jewel in the Northeast and I hope it is there for many years to come.

    I live in the NE and was excited to try this place. Pulling up, I was disappointed that I had not been here sooner. Beautiful atmosphere inside and out--really top notch for a bar/ cafe. However, the food was not so good. I had the potato bacon soup as a starter. It was sour and I wasn't sure if it was maybe some unexpected lemon or spoiled, (should have been smokey with the bacon). I also had the Tuscan Wrap--the chicken was niether hot or cold and the shredded mozzarrella was not melted but clumped, and the parmesan dressing must have been missing so I got some on the side but it lacked flavor also. The homemade potato chips on the side were unsalted and burnt. This place would be such a huge success if they put some effort into the food because they do have a very creative menu. I hope to go back because it really is a beautiful place and maybe the food will be better next time.
