I ate here a couple times during my stay near the University. I had the Cheesesteak Eggrolls, would highly recommend them. The beer was cold and priced well. Happy hour 5-7, and they have late night specials (after 10) as well.

Worst Philly cheesesteak ever. One step above frozen food section. Margarita kinda plastic too. Fish and chips ok.

Loved this little Irish Pub located on a charming side street very near U Penn, Drexel University, and the Sheraton University City. Loved the charming atmosphere, and the food was excellent. Prices were very reasonable, too.

Looks very small from the street but actually a large Irish Pub. We had shepherds pie that was nearly as good as Mum's! Great prices.

At university of penn talking some business classes and this seems like the place to go. Food is good. Service all depends on which waitress you get. We have had great ones and not do great ones. Definitely worth a visit while in philly.
