Red Owl Tavern
This charming restaurant isThis charming restaurant is right across the street from Independence Hall, with tables set up outside on the sidewalk. There is a popular bar on the inside with outgoing bartenders and a big screen TV for sports. Service is just outstanding, an overall enjoyable experience. Great food as well.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & service - bit crampedWe really enjoyed finding a new place for brunch in Old City. The food was excellent and the service very attentive and helpful. My frittata was outstanding, as was my companion's vegetable bennie. Our only concern was that it was somewhat cramped, both in how close our table was to the bar and how small it was. Once our two entrees arrived, we had to get rid of the container holding sugar packets as the plates and glasses could barely fit on the table. We would definitely come back here, though.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome lamb shank and bourbonAwesome lamb shank and bourbon selection, upstairs above the kitchen is a little noisy4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there in Jan and thenWent there in Jan and then went back on April 6th. Got THE SAME EXACT brunch entree (the healthy bennie) and it was completly different. The food wasnt bad, it just seemed inconsistant. Our server was excellent though. We ordered the bottomless bellinis and he just left the whole bottle of champagne there.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy 4th time here! I loveMy 4th time here! I love everything about this establishment.

Our server was fantastic; extremely attentive and nice. We ordered the coconut curry mussels and they were mouth watering. The bone morrow and lambs tongue was delicious and just melted in your mouth. Everyone should order the truffle fries to snack on; they were a salty crispy burst of flavor treat. I ordered the blade steak with polenta fries and was not disappointed. My steak was cooked a perfect medium rare and it was so tender and juicy. The polenta fries complimented the dish with its salty crispiness. The texture of the polenta was right on and not dried out. The meal was a great way to celebrate my birthday. Can't wait to go back and try more dishes.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTheir meatball dish was veryTheir meatball dish was very tasty but the portion was way too small3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the most amazing salmon!Had the most amazing salmon!

It has a fantastic location overlooking Independence Hall right under the beautiful new Hotel Moncaco. It has two floors with the top overlooking its fantastic bar. The wait staff has been exceptional both times I've dined there (once for dinner, once for brunch). They also offer a terrific Happy Hour. The "Bottomless Bellinis" with Puree Bar on Sundays makes their brunch even more amazing. Oh and don't forget their pastry bar! If you want somewhere to go that is as cozy as it is chic in a great location with a menu to remember, check this place out! Red Owl Tavern is all that and more!1/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the rustic/industrialI love the rustic/industrial feel of the place. The location was great.
