At first I was doubting the rave review I received about their Margarita's when it was served in a Martini glass. I quickly changed that thought process once I tasted my mango margarita. It was delicious.

The place is casual, fun, with a funky atmosphere. The food items I had were all good and I would have given this restaurant a decent review – except for the abysmal customer service. We arrived around 3:00 on a Sunday afternoon. It was not busy at that time so we could sit and work our way through our drinks... More

I am not exaggerating. The food was bad. The server was rude. The bathroom was gross. And there are only about 46,933 places on South St. alone to eat, most of which are awesome. Go somewhere else. You'll be happy that you did.

This is the second time we've had bad service and learned that there isn't anyone accountable. I will never come back since the owners don't care obviously. This review isn't about how dirty the place is so we wouldn't eat there. About 5 months ago we sat at the bar and the bartender who looks like John C. Reilly only... More

I don't get to Philly too much anymore, but since the late 80s friends and I often stopped here before Eagles games or big concerts like Pink Floyd or the Grateful Dead. So I arrive Sunday afternoon, June 19th during happy hour. We sit at the bar - the place is busy, friendly bartenders. My friend ordered her favorite -... More

The don't admit under 18's after 1900 hours, but after some gentle persuasion the doorguard let us in. Bar area was crowded, but there was only one other table taken. The burger and chicken cheesesteak were reasonable, the beer cold, service friendly, bur for the rest nothing to write home about.

This place is dirty, looking around from where I'm sitting and im disgusted to see food all around the bar area. This place needs a good scrub, if it's this dirty on the dining side, I can't imagine what the kitchen looks like, ewww

I dined there with my friends recently, and days later found that I was charges double for my orders on my credit card. The restuarant doesnt answer thier phones or respones to emails. If you eat there and get over charged, good luck getting your money back
