Worth A Visit For A Few
I have stopped in here twice in the past 2 weeks. I found it to be a perfect spot to order some picky food, sit outside and indulge in their 4 page beer menu. The zucchini and tomato flatbread was exceptional. It looked great and tasted so fresh, which was exactly what I was looking for. My boyfriend got the BRU fries, which is a deliciously, artery clogging combination of fries, bacon gravy and pork sausage. For those of you keeping score - yes, that is 2 different types of pig...and it's delicious.
The service there is really fantastic. Both times I have gone our server has been incredibly friendly and always there when you want service. It kind of surprised me because this place has accumulated a crowd for its bar scene.

Beers are Awesome!
I originally chose this place b/c the place I wanted to go for restaurant week was booked. I chose well, considering I spent less than Restaurant week and the food was fantastic! I am a huge fan of German food and Bru is now in my top 10 Restaurants in Philly. There is a small food selection of one page, which to me isn't too bad since too many choices confuse me when I am hungry. I want to try it all! BUT.... There are three pages or so of craft beverages, which I like very much. I tried a few to my liking, including a Pear Cider. The waitresses wear an adorable German/American getup with suspenders and are quite nice and accommodating to newbies to German food and craft beers like myself. I plan to return soon.

We went with a group of about 15-20 for some apps and drinks. They were very accommodating and got us two picnic type tables next to each other. The food was delicious and the service was great. There is a very, very large beer list, with special seasonal craft drafts, German beers, and plenty of bottles. A good choice for everyone!

Great Food and Beer
The beer selection is outstanding and the food was all delicious! It is expensive - you can easily throw down $100 for dinner for two people. My biggest complaint is that it is SO LOUD in the restaurant. They seem to be going for a night club experience (they clear the tables out later, so I think late at night it must be a busy bar scene). But for a 7:30 dinner, I don't see why the music needs to be so loud that you have to shout at your date 18 inches away.

The food was surprisingly delicious and much more than I expected out of a bar. We will definitely be back.

Met a client a BRU for an early lunch meeting. Although there were other tables, it was quiet enough to have a conversation. The beer list is fantastic. The service was outstanding, and the food was good. I highly recommend the pretzel app w/ warm cheese, especially if you're having a beer.
