    Visited The Industry before a concert at the Wells Fargo Ctr., and to watch an Eagles game. It's got a nice relaxed vibe inside, however; the tvs were way too loud, making it difficult to talk. Our waiter was great! The food was okay.

    The minute you walk in you feel very comfortable, then as you sit down and review the food and drink menu the selection is amazing. I recommend the Mac and cheese croquettes...incredible! Their beer selection is also very impressive giving the feel of a true tap house. I will be returning again very soon.

    So, we thought we'd give Industry a try and check it out. We ordered their "Monday" burger which was served on a standard, store bought bun you'd serve at a kid's summer camp. The burger itself was delicious, but the whole presentation was a bit lackluster as the shoestring fries served with the meal was again suitable for a kid's summer camp. The beer that was ordered was served in a bottle, no glass to accompany it. Tacky! The noise level was outright loud and uninviting and the ambience was very dark...almost gothic. Our server was fair, but not exactly personable. Overall, this place merits two stars at best.

    Would've never found this of it weren't for OpenTable & so glad we tried it. Will be back for sure! Service was charming & excellent & food was delicious with a fun cocktail menu. Mac n' cheese bites for the app was so good! May need to make that a double order for next time!!!

    We were delighted with our first experience at The Industry. We reserved a table for 4 but had an unexpected 5th person. The staff didn't miss a beat. We already settled into the 4 chairs but the staff took us to a larger table immediately and served us as if we had just arrived as a party of 5. Kudos for the staff go on and on;attentive but not overbearing and knowledgeable, esp about the craft beers (nice selection by-the-way). Atmosphere was chic and relaxing. A bit noisy at times but we were able to converse without difficulty. Food was good but not outstanding. We had the meatballs over polenta, fish & chips and a burger. Good solid food but not outstanding. Will definitely return.

    This is a wonderful little spot where the wait staff is knowledgeable and not pretentious, the food is thoughtful and delicious without being over priced and the distance from all of the "scenes" makes it neighborhoody enough to feel quaint and personal! Love this place! I will keep going back again and again!

    Early dinner on Friday night before a class. Wow. Service was better than many **** restaurants! Eclectic menu - something to please everyone. Prices are reasonable and happy hour specials amazing: Buck a shuck oysters on the half shell and $3 draft craft brews? It's a no brainer... Parking was no problem. We will DEFINITELY go back.

    First time at Industry. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious! Each dish (and we had many) substantial in size and filled with wonderful flavors. Don't miss chicken salad, quinoa salad, burger & fries, and pasta with mushrooms!

    Stopped by for Philly Beer week event with Allagash Beer. Great event, great service, great food. Servers very knowledgable about the beer on tap they server, tap list is always interesting. Thai Chicken salad was gluten-free and very good, Hillbilly Philly is the perfect brunch item, spicy fried chicken on biscuits with sausage gravy.

    Dined on 5/31/2014
    Not that I hang out in hipster Brooklyn... but this is my idea of what its more staid venues would be like. High energy and friendly (even if you don't fit the demographic) with a fun menu (especially if you eat meat, which I don't). I had the chopped salad which was somehow lacking (olives, maybe?) but my daughter had the grains salad, which was excellent. We both loved the mac'n'cheese fritters -- which you're allowed to have if you have salads, right? I particularly enjoyed the attentive, friendly, tattooed, cutoff-clad service. Lots of Phillies fans the night we were there enjoying their team's successes.

    I was looking for a place to eat lunch on a Sunday, near the stadiums before a Phillies game (also the day of the Broad Street Run). This place popped up as available on Open Table and I thought the brunch menu looked interesting. My 12 year-old daughter had the BLT with house made scrapple added. I had eggs over easy with house made home fries and house made chorizo. Both plates were delicious and well executed. My daughter's friend had the cannoli pancakes--WOW! I wasn't in the mood for sweet, took one taste, and had about five more bites (after finishing my meal)! The beer menu is quite interesting, and wine list also better than expected in a bar environment. Definitely a place I would return to.

    This was our first visit, and we enjoyed the room and the food very much. Unfortunately, the music was so loud that, when coupled with the general people noise, we could barely hear each other.
