A word from Devil's Alley – Philadelphia
An urban alley interior meets the open-air energy of the park. Touches of Rittenhouse Square-area elegance add charm to the edgy concrete and metal interior. Natural light fills the space and an overlook loft and bar upstairs allows for a view of the park below. Flames from the open kitchen sear classics from slow-smoked ribs to spice-rubbed ribeyes. Ingredients are of the highest quality, with local produce and high end meats. Always affordable, the Devil’s Alley menu bridges the gap between American comfort cuisine and a backyard barbecue, allowing for a delicious lunch, fun dinner or late night bite. Enjoy liquors from around the world, eight seasonal local drafts and addictive signature cocktails. Service is prompt, knowledgeable and fun with attention to every detail of the dining experience. Devil"s Alley, an intersection of industrial and elegant where a touch of mischief unfolds ...Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Had a great time with my friend. It was our 5th time and we loved it just as much as the first time. Food was outstanding, server was extremely attentive but not intrusive. Would go again and again and again."

  • "The food was really good. It took a while to get our food because a huge party was upstairs and the kitchen was backed up. My 5 year old loved the pancakes. He was creeped out by the artwork so I did not dare take him to the bathroom. I've been going to Devil's Alley for years for happy hour but this is the first time for brunch. I will definitely go back."

  • "Excellent food, great beer list, awesome deals for happy hour, the atmosphere is eclectic and gives a new spin on the over-the-top dive bar experience. Definitely a go-to place when in the city during work and after hours. All around one of my favorite restaurants; a must try!"

  • "For the third year in a row, a group of us went to Philadelphia Beer Week and made Devil's Alley part of the festivities. They make an outstanding beer dinner that is becoming a tradition. The 3 course meal has an appetizer, entree and desert made using a particular craft brew and includes a glass of each beer as well. There are 3 choices for each course and everyone loved the variety. It was delicious and all for the bargain price of $35.00. The service was friendly and attentive. One entree came out a little late and the manager came over to apologize and give everyone at the table a free round of drinks. The place can be a little loud and raucous but everyone had a great time. Devil's Alley will not disappoint and we will be back again."

  • "Several different dishes were lacking flavor! I wouldn't come here for food again! If anything it would strictly be for drinks with friends. We had to ask someone to remove the plates that we stacked at the front of the table and we had to ask for the check after waiting awhile. I'm not impressed at all with the place. "

  • "This pleace was quite a surprise. To start off, there are two floors with trees strung with lights in the middle of the place. It has an open atmosphere mixed with a hipster vibe. There were a few plesant surirses like fried green tomatoes which were done using a spicy marinara sauce- a combo I hadn't had quite like this. They were done perfectly. Nothing was mindbogglingly gourmet but execution on all the plates were excellent and considering the place was packed, service was timely. This is a great place for a simply GOOD meal. The buffalo chicken sandwich was divine! Cocktails were well-mixed and delicious as was the beer. Our server made the meal as a personable touch to the evening. I would certainly return with friends."

  • "I read reviews on open table before choosing to go. You should note that as of my visit, the menu and the prices listed on open table are incorrect/somewhat out of date. However, the portions for the breakfast quesadilla and shrimp and grits were size able, and the prices were completely reasonable. I also had a manmosa and it was tasty."

  • "We had brunch here on Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend. The food was really good. I would recommend the Man-Mosa as a drink. I had the Alley omelet and enjoyed it a lot. It was my wife and I and another couple. We were having a great time enjoying the great weather and drinking. The server brought us our check without us asking. That is a pet peeve of ours. We felt like we were getting kicked out. Now mind you we were the only table seated in the outside area. We were planning to stay for another drink. Other than the server mistake I would recommend it to you. "

  • "We really loved this place. We had a group coming in for a reunion. I googled the terms "Center City" and "American Food" and "beer" with a $$ rating (we didn't want to make it too expensive). We found the menu to be perfect for everyone--the vegetarians in the group had plenty of choices. The service was very good, the menu was interesting, the food was great and the price was perfect (it worked out to about $30 per person plus tip where we each had a drink, and an entree and we shared two appetizers). I would highly recommend it. "

  • "We sat upstairs by the large open doors. There was a nice view of the city and great ambiance. The Cuban sandwich was out of this world- a true Cuban. The pulled pork was also delicious. Definitely check this place out!"

  • "Service was very slow on Mother's Day brunch at 11am, not commensurate with the crowd. Took about 20 minutes to get coffee and drinks. An hour for the food, which ended up being on the cold side. Refills on coffee took 35 minutes. Food had potential to be great but the fact that no ones dish was hot or fresh took away from that immensely. Aside from that I would still return as prior visits were great and everyone gets one bad day. "

  • "Came with a group of 6 and after getting see seated, we didn't see a server for 20 minutes. Slow service continued after that. Luckily the food was wonderful, so I'll go back, but make sure you're not on a short lunch schedule. "

  • "Fun place! A bit small and loud, but it's part of the atmosphere. The menu had a good varriety but wasn't too large either. I has the pulled pork and it was very good. Loved the 90's music that was playing!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I have been there a few times but never for brunch. It was truly our server, Kelsey's fault that we had a bad time. Our drinks and food were not good which could have easily been fixed if she ever came back. Then she forced the check on us when we were going to order more drinks so we left and went to Continental near by."

  • "I read a number of great reviews on Devil's Alley and I knew I had to try it. After eating there, I was NOT left down. The food was delicious and they had some quirkier food options. The ambiance was great, the drinks were delicious, and I know I will be going back."
    Dined on 9/15/2013
  • "Food was good - soup was cold and still not that great after it was reheated. The service was good - no complaints there. Just the food was lacking in taste. Exceeept the mac & cheese. The people that ordered the mac & cheese were very very pleased ---then again, it's mac & cheese."

  • "I have enjoyed brunch here a few times. Its my go to for weekends with friends when I want something more low-key than my other favorites Parc and Distrito. Brunch is southern/tex-mex inspired provided warm comfort food that isn't over the top with both a buffet and al carte offerings. Didn't get much of a greeting or attention from the hostess upon arrival but the waiter was attentive even as the place started to liven up."

  • "I went to Devil's Alley to celebrate my college graduation. Luckily, it also happened to be restaurant week in Philadelphia, so I had the added bonus of enjoying four courses of Devil's Alley meals. Each course was great! I still remember how delicious each course was- especially the scallops and dry rub wings appetizers! The mixed drinks were enjoyable as well- not too strong and tasty. Overall, great meal, great experience for a reasonable price."

  • "Don't ever go there for restaurant week. Or ever. Horrible horrible service. We had a reservation for 8pm and didn't get seated till 8:40. I had to check with the hostess 2 times before we even were seated. They were the absolute worst. We spent 3 hours there because they cooked the food so slow. The waitress knew nothing about the menu and they ran out of everything and 5 times came over to the table saying they ran out of whatever and we had to pick another choice. Would never recommend this restaurant for anyone."

  • "Originally I went to Devil's Alley with a friend for Restaurant Week, but after experiencing their wonderful food and service, I will definitely go back for a special occasion dinner! The food was first and foremost DELICIOUS! I cannot believe they perfectly blended the taste of a loaded baked potato into soup form... SOUP FORM. That is unheard of, and it was mouthwatering good. Also, I tried their tempura fried tofu (it was my first time eating tofu) and it was amazing! The service was incredible, everyone was very nice and patient I recommended that place to all of my college friends for restaurant week and just to go there in general!"

  • "Thanking Neil for a great experience during restaurant week. As a out of town visitor, I came for the proximity and stayed for the wings. Drinks were excellent and well served and the food and service were awesome. Feel free to ask for guidance, staff are willing to help."

  • "The restaurant week food was different from the normal menu. We thought the chef was trying to show that he could prepare more than just pub food, and he succeeded quite well. Everything was prepared well, appeared artistically, and was delicious. If they have the same level of food as in restaurant week, than we would certainly stop there again and recommend it. The only down side was that on the specials board it stated that white and red wine was $4 during happy hour when we were there. There were no exceptions noted, however when our bill came we were charged the full $9 a glass. We were told that that wine was not part of the happy hour wine special. It would have been good to be told beforehand or have it noted on the specials board."

  • "I've been here many times but this was my first visit for breakfast/brunch. All 3 of us felt that our meals were very bland (I even added salt and I'm very sensitive to salt). We also had to send our bacon (2 orders) back to have it cooked more. It was not done when they brought it out. I'll go back for the beer and the blt, but not for breakfast/brunch."

  • "I ordered my salmon BLT cooked medium. The salmon was cooked done and the bacon was medium, just the reverse of what I wanted. My dining partner had a entree salad which she loved. Our pretty server was annoying, less than 10 seconds after our entrees arrived, she broke into our conversation to ask how the food tasted! She asked 2 more times later about the food, even though we were in a conversation. Don't servers know visual cues?"

  • "My boyfriend and I loved this place. The food is american comfort food and you can never really complain about that. We started with cocktails--my pomegranate sangria was super tasty. We also had the special appetizer--short rib quesadilla...it was so good. I had the grilled cheese with bacon and apple and the spicy fries. I loved this dish--a modern twist on a classic. My boyfriend had the pulled pork which he also really enjoyed but was kind of impossible to eat! Overall great pricing and great food. We will be back!"

  • "Visitor to Philly. Recommended by friend. Greeted warmly. Seated at small table. We asked to sit at a booth. No problem. Waitress was efficient and told us drink and food specials. Very good food served hot. Nice atmosphere and talking level good. After leaving hostess called us to tell us we had left glasses behind. That was an advantage of booking online. They had our contact number and called us when we were two blocks from the restaurant. Nice service! Thank you."

  • "I made a reservation at Devil's Alley for lunch on a Friday at 11:45 before Christmas. When I got there, the place was deserted and I was wondering if the reservation was really necessary. However, within a half hour there wasn't a seat left in the place. The service was fantastic despite the crowd. They have a very good selection of beers on tap. I have a blood mary which was super tasty and garnished with green olives. I had the Cuban sandwich which came with fries. My friend who had been there before told me the burgers can't be beat. Salads looked fresh and crisp. The fries weren't the greatest, but passable. Would totally recommend Devil's Alley for a working day lunch."
