Decor is very reflective of a traditional Irish pub, but beer on tap is far from the end of the rainbow; flat and lines are clearly not cleaned which is why there is no carbonation in your glass. Food experience was par; not spectacular nor...More

We eat at Moriarty's at least twice a year when we have theater tickets at the Walnut Street Theater because they give us a 20% discount. Dinner is almost always crowded and the dining room on the first floor very noisy so conversation is difficult....More

Prices are reasonable for what you would expect for a bar/pub type of eatery. It's middle of the road as far as cost goes. $10-$12 for a cheesteak.
