I grew up in a shitty, bombed out neighborhood going to dive bars with my dad eating bar food so it might explain why this place feels so much like home. I really love it here. Great food, great live music and the owner is cool as hell. The bands play upstairs and I guarantee you'll have such a good time you won't remember how you got back down those stairs. I never do. For all I know I have to be carried out. It's also great for me because I'm strictly vegan and there's plenty of items to accommodate me on the menu (the cheesesteak is awesome, no cheese but still really good). Last time I was here was for the new year's eve event and I ordered the Spicy Asian Salad. So of course I got the spinach salad with eggs and bacon on it and Italian Dressing (I picked around it and just ate the veggies) but that's ok. In fact I expect that my order gets fucked up in a place like this (It is a dive bar on a street lined with dive bars after all). I still got to ring in the new year with my girl and with a complimentary champagne toast in a place I love and in a city I love visiting.

I was in Philly for a gig at the convention center and was looking for a pub where I could grab a bite and a good craft brew. This spot is a gem. Fergie, the owner, is very approachable and made me feel right at home away from home. Food was surprising. The hot roast beef was likely the best prime rib dip I have ever had. Everything was fresh. The next time I am in Philly this is my first stop. Avoid all the jock pubs and walk an extra block. Perfect vibe. Especially for anyone who wants an Irish pub. Stellar. Thank you.

Burger was good. I really wanted the crabcake sandwich, but they were out of them at 12:30 in the afternoon. Friend of mine had a grilled cheese sandwich that was good. Place was dark and needed more lighting. Service a bit slow for how business was. Prices are reasonable. More of a place to go at late night for a drink.

I can't recommend Fergie's enough - they are amazing. Short story: my first time going to Philly a few years ago for business I got there late on a Sunday night and wanted dinner/drinks and I didn't know my way around town; so I wandered around from my hotel. I see this tiny little free-standing bar that had a good size crowd that was all dressed to the 9's. I didn't know what the occasion was, but it looked like fun so I went in and ordered a drink. Within a minute or two the owner came over and said something along the lines of: O:"We're actually closed for a private event tonight." Me: "Sorry, I'm not from around here and wasn't aware." O: "Well a good friend of the bar died and this is their wake. Where're you from? Seattle? Well you're family tonight, drink up." I sat there for hours drinking, getting to know everyone (who were all super awesome to me), and wasn't charged a dime. Needless to say, I appreciated so much the way that I was treated like family instead of a dollar; that I spent my entire per diem (and tipped well) there every night on every trip for food/drinks. I wanted to really wanted to vote with my wallet and think him for the way I was welcomed. Even if I did inadvertently crash a funeral/wake...

Excellent beer specials and great bar service. Most beers on tap are well-priced. For a calm, Wednesday night it's a great place to sit and talk. The music was a little loud for my preference.
