Always a reliable best bet!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFish & Chips, Lamb StewMade a reservation for 8:30pm on a Wednesday night -- and glad I did, they were packed! Right to my seat, though, no delay, very prompt.
Good service. Started with lamb stew. Quite good. Then the fish and chips. The best part about the f & c was the breading. Oddly, the whitefish had very little innate taste, and seemed a bit water logged or undercooked. Would've liked the chips to be more chip-size than standard french-fry-size.
Servers and greeters all excellent.
One final note -- RC Cola? Really? I asked the server if the RC Cola was a Philly thing. She said, no, the owner is just cheap. Ha!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch with a viewWe went for the Philly Beer Week brunch. Our waitress was friendly and enthusiastic. There menu has something for everyone, and their special omelette was fantastic. They are also featuring beer cocktails which is pretty cool. We also had a corner table by the windows which had a grey view for people watching.

Friendly service, eager-to-please wait staff and host, an all-around good experience!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for pre-theatre lunchThe location, right across the street from the Academy of Music, makes this a great place for lunch before or after a show. Not a super-extensive menu, but a good variety of sandwiches, burgers, salads, entrees. I had the soup-of-the day, which was a velvety butternut squash, scented with sage, & it was divine! The Mediterranean sandwich was a winner, too, & served w/ mixed greens, was enough to take half home for the next day. The view down Broad Street for tables in the front is a bonus.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will definitely go backMy husband & I went to Perch Pub after going to the Walnut Street Theatre. It was a beautiful day out and we thought we go somewhere new. What a find it was, we will definitely go back!!! Our waitress, Melissa was wonderful:-)
I had the 'Mediterranean Melt' which included grilled eggplant & squash, caramelized onions, roasted peppers, carrots & spinach with melted cheese on a foccocia/ciabatta roll. This was absolutely wonderful, I loved it:-) My husband had the 'Apple Salad' with arugula, apples, candied walnuts, blue cheese, red onions, with a light vinaigrette drsg. with a whole chicken breast added to it. He also really, liked it. We both started with the soup of the day which was Potato Leek, which we both thoroughly enjoyed.
