I checked out this place today and it was pretty cool. When I first walked in I was surprised because I saw a bar full of people I was tempted to leave. But, then a waiter called me over and have me seated. It's pretty dark in there just enough light for you to look around and eat. For a appetizer I ordered the grilled octopus salad and it's so flavorful right balanced salad. For my entree I had the Angus burger oh boy I loved it! I'm not a person who likes burgers that much, but this burger is so good! Pretty big too I was very satisfied and content. I would defiantly be back!

Pros: the food at Royal Tavern can't be beat, and it's a great place to go with your vegetarian friends to boot. I go there a few times a month -- don't miss their bacon bloody mary. Worth trying are the wings, soba noodle salad, mezze (share this with someone or get it as a meal), calamari, chicken frankie, Angus burger, grilled cheese, and fish and chips. I've never had anything bad there. Cons: the place is extremely dimly lit and, on a busy night, you can't hear yourself think. For whatever reason sound really carries in there. Also, the kitchen and service is extraordinarily slow. Weeknights aren't too bad and brunch is usually safe, but if you're going during a weekend night you should expect to spend about 2 hours there just waiting for and eating your food.

Best food you can get in South Philly, hands down. Try the grilled cheese... it's a smoked gouda flavorgasm. Other honorable mentions: The Burger and meatloaf sandwich. Always a good selection of beers on tap and the staff are great!

I've been here a few times and I haven't had a bad experience. Possibly the best burger I've ever eaten. Great craft beer selection. Many vegan options if that's what you're into. Wonderful servers. I go here at least once a month.

I was working in Philadelphia for a few months and went around to all the places the locals recommended. The Royal Tavern was mentioned numerous times for its excellent burgers, so I tried the house burger as well as their special bacon burger. (the patty is half ground beef and half bacon) The bacon burger was excellent and possibly one of the best burgers in the city. The house burger was also very good but is a little too spicy for me. I highly recommend The Royal Tavern if you're looking for a night of food and drinks. It's a really good local pub with a good selection of bear and liquor and of course, food.

everything on the menu looked so good it was almost impossible to decide. my friend and i ended up ordering 5 different dished just so we could taste a little of everything. the grilled cheese and burger were among my favorites. will absolutely be back again and again.
