    The kind of place you go if you want to sip your manhattan and feel like you're in a swanky 1920's speakeasy. "One of the strangest and most amazing places to have a drink in Philly right now." Read more

    Food, yummy. Service, pleasant and prompt. Beef... The website says music starts at 9:30, so we made an 8 pm reservation. Music doesn't start til 10, so now we have to walk around and kill time. Boo.

    When the Liquor Control Board isn't shutting it down, it's an incredible place for libations. Unreal draft list that keeps changing and the cocktails, holy smokes, the cocktails.

    Truly excellent speakeasy. Grab a cocktail (or one of many, many beers) and a barrel to sit around. One of the best old fashioneds I've had, of many many hundred.

    Imagine Ridley Scott directing a happy hour for beer snobs, cocktail historians, Jazz Age hep cats and righteous old drunks. It’s one of the strangest and most amazing places to drink at in Philly.

    Farmers’ Cabinet is now serving its own house beers. Brewer Terry Hawbaker’s beers are unique and excellent. They also tend to be a couple bucks cheaper than the other beers on the list. Read more

    The rustic decor and occasional ragtime piano player go great with Phoebe Esmon's cocktail creations at Farmers' Cabinet. They've even got two bars: beer to the left, cocktails to the right!

    This is an awesome dinner option. Venison, short rib, skate - it's all good! Have the tasting plate on the meat, 3 cheeses and the pickled saffron duck egg.

    One of a kind, European-like bar, right in downtown! Amazing decor and great international beer list. Lighting is very dim so bring your reading light!

    Local source type if restaurant! Love the ambience it has a very elegant rustic feel to it! It's better to come here in groups! Tables are huge 😊

    This place is totally unique. The house band is great! Check out the food, vibe, and Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society!

    Super unique, definitely a step away from your typical Micro-brew savvy center city bar. A menu that tickles your experimental side, decor that lets your nostalgic side wander, wonderful tap selection

    Best beer list in the north east, killer cocktails and the most extensive selection of game in the city. All in a frontier saloon. Try the elk and the holland fog

    Really good cocktails, draughts and food! Salted potatoes, duck egg in a jar, lamb tongue sandwich (!), BBQ porkbelly sandwich... Addicted to the bar popcorn...sweet and salty!

    Great beer and cocktails. The lobster and crab ceviche is a little heavy on the ginger, but everything else is fabulous. Try the cheese fondue - it's incredible.

    Barrels as tables is a really nice ambience piece. Very friendly staff. Superb draft list.

    Great cheese and meat board selections. The root chips were a waste better off to buy a bag at Wawa. The only down note to an otherwise great experience.

    Perhaps the most most unique and exciting drinking/dining spot in Philly. Refreshingly authentic and non-theatrical. Unusual but accessible menu.

    Get a sour beer on tap and order a cheese plate. The cheese monger knows his stuff.

    The beer list is divided into taste categories. The staff is also very knowledgeable and made great pairing recommendations.

    I think the tips here are awful. Come here with an open pallet and let the servers introduce what ever your little dirty mind desires... totally open minded kind of place! :-)

    Great atmosphere, food is unusual but tasty. Donuts were on the dry side and a disappointment unless you drawn them in maple syrup or butter.

    Flames of troy is fantastic. The duck rillette is average and you can get better at monoprix or franprix

    The rabbit cassoulet is fantastic. So was the pork Avoid the woman bartender at all costs. Miserable and hates life.

    Don't get the duck pierogi it's too starchy!! All I could taste were potatoes inside -.-" didn't even get a hint of the duck at all

    Beware they charge for extra bread. This was especially irritating since we had a cheese board. Cheese needs bread.
