A word from Cooperage - Philadelphia
For great domestic craft beer, and extensive wine and whiskey selections, head to Cooperage, a New American gastropub located in the historic Curtis Center, just North of Washington Square. Coop’s kitchen puts a fun twist on comfort food, and a refreshing focus on slow food, like oysters on the half shell, and cheese and charcuterie boards put together from small American farms. A great destination for a quick and tasty lunch, casual snacks and sips at the bar, or a full dinner.Continued

  • "Great salad entrees and sandwich platters make this restaurant an easy place to relax and dine."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Very much enjoyed food and beer selection and the service was very good, but the noise level during happy hour made casual conversation difficult. Good deals for happy hour in terms of variety and prices. There is outdoor seating available but I cannot report on this because we ate inside."

  • "Visited for lunch on day of USA-Germany world cup match. French Dip, Burger, Asian salad and Mac n Cheese were all good. Friendly and very knowledgeable server. However, service was initially slow (perhaps owing to crowd due to game), but once we got our order in, service was good."

  • "Stopped for dinner before seeing a show at The Walnut Street Theater. This is a small bar which is loud and young. After seeing our table, I asked to sit outside. The outside seating was very comforatable - cushy seats, roomy. The service was good but you needed to catch the servers when they were outside. The Corn & Crab Chowder was excellent but VERY filling. We had the Chinese Salad which was excellent as well. I had the French Dip which was very good but way too much food after the Chowder. Definitely a good place for good food. If I was younger - I'm sure I'd love the bar as well."

  • "Great Happy Hour and also a great spot before the theater. The food is wonderful bar type menu and the service is normally very quick. We always have time to enjoy our meal and get to the theater on time."

  • "Great restaurant wait staff and management are always friendly and helpful. Acoustics are a bit lively but overall lunch experience is great! Bar picks up for happy hour and a nice mixed crowd shares a cozy space. Recommended! "

  • "My 10 year old son and I were spending the day in the city and decided to stop at Cooperage for lunch since we had to eat on the early side and this was the only restaurant in the area open at 11 AM. We were pleasantly surprised service was good, portions were ample and food was very good."

  • "The waiter suggested I try the shrimp po boy and I was reluctant because it said "cajun" but he assured me that it wasn't spicy at all and he was right. It was delicious!"

  • "My friend and I visited Cooperage - Philadephia before visiting the theater down the street. It was a Friday night and was very crowded but we made reservations in advance and we were seated immediately. It took a bit of time before our order (even our drink order) was taken. It then took quite a bit of time before we received our drinks. It was happy hour and it was very busy. The waitress came by and told us she was waiting for clean glasses. We were okay with the wait because we had time to kill before the play. The food was okay. I orderd the crispy chicken sandwich which was not memorable. My friend had the french dip which she told me was pretty good."

  • "We had been to Cooperage once before for dinner before the show at The Walnut Theater, and they had entrees either as specials or on the menu. This time, there were no entrees on the menu or as specials, so our before theater "dinner" consisted of sandwiches. The restaurant was "out of" several menu items as well as several wine choices, which seemed quite odd for a Saturday evening. The sandwiches we did have was tasty enough and the waitress was cordial and tried to be helpful. Perhaps Cooperage is more of a lunch place with a bar that is popular with the after work crowd. We wouldn't return for dinner, but would consider trying it for lunch one day."

  • "Food is always delicious, service is wonderful. Menu has something for everyone, and is nicely affordable. Ambience can be bustling/noisy, but it's a great place for lunch, or after work."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We went after the theater - it was 5:00pm. Great place would have liked to stay longer. Good local beer selection and reasonable wine selection. Also, have to say one of the best burgers I've had in a long time."

  • "A surpisingly good meal (pulled pork sandwich and mac and cheese), nice beer selection, and excellent service. Noisy at the bar but not really enough to interfer with the meal"
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "Food was not anything special. Select restaurant week menu included a ribeye steak and chicken pasta dish. Both were Below Average to Average. Service was Above Average. Manager offered free drinks after chatting about bourbons. Ambience was a general Center City bar/restaurant."

  • "Two thumbs up! I went with my boyfriend, and another couple. The restaurant week menu was phenomenal! I had the Chicken Tortilla Soup, Shrimp Quesadilla, Baked Salmon with Shrimp Risotto, and the Flan. It's a lot of food! and it was delicious! I was not expecting to get a whole quesadilla, thought it was going to be half of a normal size one. I had leftovers for the next day. The staff was very friendly. The decor in cooperage is retro vintage with a modern twist. Overall, I loved the food, service was great and would recommend this to friends."

  • "I have eaten at Cooperage many times. Unfortunately, this particular experience was not a good one because their menu changed significantly and we ended up leaving to go to another restaurant. I had 2 guests with me who looked at the online menu before their arrival and they were very disappointed that none of the dishes they wanted were on the dinner menu. They told the waitress that the online menu still had the old dinner menu and she was very apologetic and said that they changed it drastically about 2 months ago, but that they still needed to update the menu. For example, they used to offer clams and mussels, bourbon chicken wings, fish and chips, and a number of other delicious dishes which are no longer available. Great burgers!"

  • "My family and I love Cooperage. It's our go to whenever we have a short amount of time for dinner, or for a fabulous Happy Hour deal. However our last visit was very disappointing. It took a while for our waitress to even come to our table. We were sat in the middle of the bar and my sister kept getting hit in the head by purses, back packs, and butts walking by. The noise level was deafening and it was impossible to talk over. We will definitely go back because the Happy Hour deal is too good to be true. But it's a shame when your favorite bar lets you down."

  • "We went for dinner before catching a show; told the staff that we were going to a show and had a deadline (but still had plenty of time, over an hour).... then waited, and waited.... It was 20 minutes before anyone came to the table, after 30 minutes still didn't have drinks, and that was it! We left to grab a quick bite somewhere else and make the show! Can't comment on the food, since we didn't have any...."
    Dined on 7/3/2013
  • "We really liked this restaurant. There were generous portions of food and drink at happy Hour prices till 700. A hidden gem in this part of town. Keep it up."
    Dined on 7/2/2013
  • "The food we had was good, but nothing to rave about. The menu is minimal (a few apps, salads, burgers and sandwiches). Disappointing that they were "in between" their seasonal whiskey menus, so had no special cocktails to offer."
    Dined on 6/29/2013
  • "Great place to go before the theater. No "over feeding" and falling asleep. Nice size portions and tasty sandwiches."
    Dined on 6/6/2013
  • "The menu online was not the menu offered. I would have left and gone elsewhere but it was my grandsons birthday and we were going to a show so we were under a time constraint. The hostess didn't seem to know what I was talking about when I asked about the menu. Although the service was very good and our order came in a timely manner, I will not go back unless I want a burger and beer. I was disappointed in the menu and the food."

  • "Not a bad place. Menu is small and mostly bar food. Great whiskey selection. Our waitress was extremely nice, but I could tell she was spread thin with how many tables she had. Hostess was grumpy."

  • "No one was there at the door so I didn't know if they checked my reservation, but we were pointed to a table. We were pleasantly surprised with the food, it was great. It was a perfect pub atmosphere and a great place to have dinner before a show. We will definitely go back there again."

  • "We wanted a quick dinner prior to a show. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Happy hour was a blast. Drinks were reasonably priced and food was great. Manager and wait staff showed us special attention. Can't ask for much more than that."

  • "Nice industrial feel to this restaurant. The food is upscale sandwiches and bar type fare. The draught beer selection is eclectic and constantly changing variety of microbrews and local products. Great for business lunch groups and the staff is as warm and friendly as center city Philadelphia gets."
    Dined on 6/27/2012
  • "Overall the food was good, but the service was slow and they were out of a lot of beverages. They had a cocktail menu online, but when I asked to see it they said it was being re-done... but they could still make me drinks off of the old menu. They were out of moscato and the cider advertised on the board was actually a different one. The food was very good."
