    I was disappointed in everything about this place...the food, the wait (no one wanted to take our order) and of course the food was just okay. I believe the place is good for all kinds of beer, but drink don't eat.

    Great beer, excellent food, and a cool atmosphere. This place really rocks. Good for a group of people who want to discuss anything over a couple of pints, and the wings (very big), hummus (so tasty), and the mussels (spicy!) are suburb. I felt like Mr. Pickwick from Dickens' novel, getting ready to drink pint after pint and then do something fun. Come here and have a good time!

    Dined on 2/9/2014
    Met here on my son's recommendation, I had the fried green tomato BLT and it was amazing! He had the special, and before he got there our waiter warned us there was only one left and since I thought it sounded like something my son would like he said he'd make sure no one else got it! Turns out I was right, and he had the fried chickenl special with cornbread and sweet potato stuffing and scrambled eggs!! Also loved the $3.00 Bloody Mary's and the extensive beer list! Sat at the bar so we could watch the Olympics, but would love to go back and sit in the dining room. PS Roaring Fireplace on a cold winter morning was very welcoming!

    Sine moving to the EPA area about five months ago, Devil's Den has become our go-to spot. Maybe there's a better gastropub-type place somewhere else (SPTR? Grace Tavern?) but we love this one. The wait staff is always great and the food is always superb.....as long as you realize that this isn't Vetri or Zahav or Bibou. For a neighborhood pub, this is the gold standard!

    fun, unpretentious bar with great food and wonderful beer list. so glad to have this in my neighborhood. only thing to work on is the timing of the food. have had similar problems in the past but this time the oyster app came out at the same time as the hot food. i don't usually feel like having oysters at the end of a meal:-/ otherwise, the server was attentive and the mussels were great.

    Went for the beer and I wasn't disappointed. The bottle list was pretty impressive with competitive pricing. The tap list seemed a little light to me, but no worries. We ordered apps and they were nothing special. Totally typical bar food. I almost wish we'd ordered entrees instead because I feel that the quality might have been better on the higher priced menu items. The server was nice, attentive without being in your face and seemed knowledgeable of the establishment's beer offerings. There's a TON of GREAT beer bars in Philly. This is a good beer bar.

    I can honestly say that I have never had less than a superb experience at Devil's Den...every single time. Brunch here is great. In the evening, I'm partial to the Mussels Provencal. And they always have something interesting on their nitro-pump and their gravity pump. This is my favorite gastro-pub (terrible term) in center city and south philly.
