Food was average, nothing to love/hate about it, but the kicker was the moment when my initial credit card was "rejected", so I payed with a second one. A rejected CC transaction is always a red flag, so after receiving a package in the mail (that I had not ordered) I realized the CC was skimmed at the restaurant. I returned that package (good thing the merchant sent it to the billing address) and reported the CC theft to the company. No amount of good service can erase that bad taste; AVOID this place, or pay in cash if you absolutely have no other option for diner.

very nice atmosphere, but typically bar food shouldn't be priced like this, because there is nothing special or unique about the very frat style foods.

This place is horrible! I have no idea how they are zagat rated. All of their food is microwaved or kept in warm water baths. If that wasn't bad enough they have a horrible cockroach and rodent infestation! The only thing this place has going for them is the staff and good beer. Don't EAT here!!

Large menu with lots of high-quality food and beer options. Highly recommend the salmon. Delicious combination of salmon, garlic, mashed potato, and sauted spinach. Service was excellent. Slightly off the main Rittenhouse Square action so it's quieter, less hectic, and good amounts of outside seating.

I ordered a bacon and blue cheese burger cooked medium and got a flavorless borderline burnt piece of meat. With so many other places in the city to choose from I don't think I'll be visiting again.

Good food, average drink selection. I did get to see Reese Witherspoon here once.
