This is a great restaurant with excellent food and wonderful ambiance. We had the filet mignon which was melt in your mouth good and chicken cooked to perfection. The wait staff is attentive knowledgeable and friendly. Seriously, do yourself a huge favor and visit this restaurant in wonderful Ridley Park in Philly. A+

On all past visits to Philly I've chosen downtown restaurants. This time I decided to eat and stay one night south of town. This restaurant is very close to the airport and associated chain hotels, but it's tucked away in an old town center that feels many miles away. Most everything about it seems old fashioned in a good way,... More

Not enough cheese (Cooper S harp American is a great choice, but i could not taste it or see it). The rolls were served warm not hot (maybe because they were sliced diagonally lengthwise and cooled. I asked for a side of hot cherry peppers. The peppers were soggy (old?). Serving cheesesteak anything this close to Philadelphia with Siracha aioli... More

My favorite neighborhood place for relaxing over a full dinner, or just a selection of appetizers, or stopping in for a few drinks with friends. It all fits well. The Gaslight has a comfortable turn of the century décor and welcoming and knowledgeable servers. Separate seating areas are available for diners preference. The meals are tastefully delicious and bountiful. The... More

Tried the crab cakes and was not let down. With a bread, sweet potato and vegetables I could barely finish. Great atmosphere with a very cool bar. The main entrance is a little odd but the wait staff helps guide you to a seat if you end up wandering a little.

I am visiting this area on business and The Gas Light was recommended. All I can say is “Good Call”. The restaurant is very old and screams with personality and charm. It appears to be a place that locals frequent, but despite this my associate and I were treated like we were locals. The service was very friendly and attentive.... More

I got the crab cakes and they had plenty of lumps of crab meat. Once I picked out the lumps, I realized there was a large pile of filler and once the sauce ran out they were just so-so. The sweet potato was very good, but the carrots were mush. My friend had a steak served on the hot stone... More

This was a very pleasant experience. The restaurant is in what appears to be an old house and has an great feel. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. Really enjoyed the shrimp and scallop pasta.
