A word from Jerry's Bar
Jerry's menu is anchored by thoughtfully re-imagined bistro classics lovingly prepared by hand. Our bar is impeccably stocked - European craft beer, boutique wines, a formidable whiskey selection and exquisite spirits. We offer cocktails as classic as they are inventive. Like the food and drink, Jerry's itself was rebuilt, brick by brick, by craftsmen with a profound respect for heritage. It incorporates a rich collection of architectural treasures, culled from historic buildings around Philadelphia. The result - old school elegance and refinement, where every brick, column, cobble stone, marble slab, door and fixture has a story to tell. Jerry's Bar is new in an old way, to be savored and sipped slowly, rooted in simple pleasures that are as fresh as they are timeless.

    Tried it because it gets good reviews. Cool spot in an interesting part of town but food not where I expected. Signature burger was small and unremarkable. The meatballs were ok - the pictures were better. Service was slow which was odd because it was an uncrowded weeknight.

    Went for brunch with my husband--we desperately needed a little time in the city. The food was delicious. I had the short rib and kale omelet. Yum. The kitchen accommodated our request for the donuts without cinnamon (allergy!) . Much appreciated. My husband liked his bloody Jerry. The only downside was the noise. We had one party of 8 women near us, another of 4 next to us and we were tucked in the corner. We could barely hear the wonderful music. We could have asked for a high top near the jazz but wanted a real table and chairs. Perhaps rearrange area or ask preference when making the reservation?

    Absolutely great atmosphere. Waiter was very attentive & knowledgeable about the food & drinks. They had a live jazz duo there on Sunday for brunch which was killer. Overall, great place to stop by in Northern Liberties or make the trip to from out of town... Oh ya, I almost forgot, the food was SPECTACULAR. Try the "Jerry Benedict" - It will blow your mind. Can't wait to go back

    Brunch on Sunday was great. The food and service was very good. My only complaint was that we were seated in a corner right against the wall.

    My husband took me here for dinner Monday night and I can't wait to return. There are zero tv's, which seems to be a rarity these days. Very high marks for that alone. However, I could go on and on. It is certainly quaint, chic, romantic & the food was excellent. I had escargots & filet mignon. I love everything about this place.

    Went to Jerry's for the first time. Food was great! Gnocchi, Mussels and Beet salad were all top notch! Only issue - it was very dark inside. Would definitely go back!

    My wife and I had been looking forward to checking out Jerry's having heard good reviews recently including a "best brunch" award. Unfortunately, our experience was less positive. My "eggs benny" tasted fine and my wife's omelet was average. The rest of both dishes were weak as my home fries and my wife's hash browns were inedible because they were burned and sat too long on the grill. The three small pieces of fruit served on the plates were not fresh and would have been better left in the kitchen. Our server forgot our side salad and side sausage. Also, I had to remind server there was no need to request a toast order for me as eggs benny is served on a muffin. The bar ambiance is excellent and the jazz music perfect for a brunch.

    My GF and I were referred to Jerry's Bar by a recent mention on the 6abc show FYI. We made last minute reservations for an early Sunday morning brunch. The food was delicious, the portions were very ample and the pricing was good. Our server was fantastic, friendly and well versed with the menu options and details. The ambiance is festive and fun. This was our first visit and we look forward to returning soon.

    We are repeaters who need walk only two blocks to Jerry's. Like it very much. Stand-bys on menu are really good, so understand why they remain in place. A few new items would be good nonetheless beyond the special for the evening. Very much appreciate being able to make a reservation.

    Eating here with friends, even in the early evening, was difficult because of the noise level from the tin ceiling and busy bar. We wanted to sit outside but it was full at 6:30, and reservations are not taken for the outdoor area. We enjoyed the food, though the crab cake was a bit too spicy for my tastes.

    Food was great, atmosphere was great, our table was close to another couple but it wasn't a big deal. It a small place and we expected that. Our server was just ok and was the weak part of the night.

    It was my first visit to Jerry's, and certainly not my last. Our party of four ordered appetizers, entrees, and desserts; everything was delicious, and the steak was melt in your mouth good. Service all around was excellent. I'd like to return for Sunday jazz brunch, because I hear it is worth the trip!

    The bar it self was beautiful. The waitress explained the owner is a contractor and everything in the bar is repurposed material from jobs the owner has been on. The bar had a good mix of beers and wines. The food was edible but not worth the $135 bill. We were there because of Philadelphia Resturaunt Night and ordered from the prefixed menu. The steak was chewy and overcooked. The mussels were overcooked and the mustard in the broth threw off the whole dish. The "strawberry trifle" for dessert was mainly whipped cream with crumbs of shortbread cookies. Very disappointing! The other dishes were ok but nothing to rave over. Overall we were very disappointed because we wanted to love it!

    Enjoyed the atmosphere and creative approach. Brunch was OK, food not super but adequate. When it came time to serve our food was delivered all over the place. However, I do like their menus and will keep going back.

    The bar feels like it is tucked a way in some quaint, old town. Live jazz at brunch was blissful but the food was subpar. The eggs tasted of nothing but a mouth full of pepper and the stuffed French toast was extremely dry with little stuffing. I would go back for a drink, maybe I will try dinner. As few the place was not very busy, probably because its just not a fabulous brunch spot. The atmosphere was wonderful but the food was not worth the price.

    Good brunch but nothing overly special. We were in a weird mood and there was hardly anyone there when we arrived at opening on a Saturday, and she said she would bring out our soups first and then the entree we were splitting, but brought it all out at once so by the time we dug into that burger (which is really one of the best burgers in the city) it was cold, and not so amazing. The food is really good and we will be back for dinner, but weren't overly impressed with brunch. And the brunch options seemed to be really egg-heavy like fritattas, or super sweet pancake concoctions, neither of which I'm greatly into, but that's just me! I know those are a lot of people's idea of brunch.

    Went here for Sunday brunch with friends from out of town. They have live Jazz during brunch which adds to the wonderful vibe of the space. Service was impeccable (our server was Jake). Their menu is very broad and will meet all sorts of dietary restrictions and/or tastes. Everything we ordered was delicious: omelett, frittata, cinnamon roll, coffee, falafel sandwich & gravlax over potato latkes. Will definitely go back...

    Jerry's is one of the best bars in NoLibs. Situated just off 2nd street and far enough from the Piazza it makes for a fun night without having to travel to other areas of the city. The bar offers signature cocktails but I always find their traditional drinks the best, but I am also a traditionalist. The beer menu and draft list rotates pretty regularly with a wide selection of premium, local and craft brews. In the ten times I have been there I have never tried their wines, I guess another reason to go back!! :). As my "brunch place" Jerry's offers the best Bloody Mary's but take a risk and order the "Bloody Jerry" you will not be disappointed!!
