A reconstructed Colonial tavern where servers in period dress deliver old-fashioned American fare.- Google
"The corn chowder was great and the sweet potato biscuits were awesome."
"Wonderful food and unique atmosphere."

Went here for lunch this past Saturday. Despite growing up in the Philadelphia area I'd never been. The place was amazing. I ordered a beef turnover which was incredible. The service was excellent and friendly, but I'd have to say the best part was the colonial decor. Very cool, well worth the visit for that alone. There's also a bar on site which seemed like a nice place to have a few tankards of ale (though they actually only seemed to serve water in the tankards and beer in glasses, still pretty cool)

Food was very good. Atmosphere, overlooking Philadelphia on a winter night and the chello playing was wonderful.

Second time here... Love this place! Food is good, decor is charming and staff is very friendly! Our waiter was fantastic with his history tid bits and funny stories. Would go again in a heart beat.

Love this Restaurant. Walter Staib signed a children's cookbook for my grandson and our server, Larry - dressed for the colonial period- was so conversational with my grandson about the history behind the restaurant. He even listened as my grandson explained what he had learned at school about Paul Revere and his famous ride. I would recommend this restaurant to any family wanting a colonial experience with excellent time period food and drink choices. Meeting the world famous Chef at the restaurant is a bonus. Great family experience!!!

I'm a Philly native, born and raised and even though it's a tourist attraction, I still love coming here. The food has that home cooked flavor to it and you can't go wrong with their drinks selection. It's pricey but definitely worth a visit.

Visited the City Tavern in Philadelphia on August 2, 2014 for the very first time. The atmosphere was very nice, the waiter was very nice. The food took over an hour and a half to arrive and I ordered the Turkey Pot Pie, the crust on top was raw and the veges inside were under-cooked. Did not have time to complain because we had to leave for a concert. The waiter said there was some confusion in the kitchen! Never again will I eat here.

We were there for lunch on Sunday and the service was very efficient. Had the founding fathers beer sampler, it was good. The corn chowder was great and the sweet potato biscuits were awesome. Serving sizes are shareable.

Waiter was knowledgable and patient above and beyond expectation! We ate with four children off hours and despite that they were helpful. The food was delicious, filling, and authentic.
