    Delicious filet...we ordered a side order of mushroooms and they were yummy. It's our third time there and it's been great every time. Nice portions and great service. The price is incredible. It's better than the expensive steak restaurants....thank you Strip Joint.

    Kind of out of the way place that looked charming from a distance. Not so much. We were on time, a table was not. Had a cocktail at the bar then given the table next to that. Servers, hostess, buyboys all whizzed past us several times (and the place wasn't packed at all) with no one noticing us until we tried to flag someone after a half hour. Once we finally did, she was curt at best. Food was no better than a TGIF. Unimpressed, and I'm pretty easy.

    The food was absolutely delicious. Our waitressed seemed more interested in socializing with others than waiting on her tables and she disappeared for a good 15 minutes even after a drink and a side were requested right after we received our meal. Thankfully, we asked the bartender (after 15 minutes of waiting for our no show waitress) who brought the side and my drink (which had been sitting on the bar) over promptly. We will be back because the food is awesome but hopefully the server will care more about the tables she has.

    My brother and I brought our father here for Father's Day. To start, as soon as we entered someone helped us. We chose to sit outdoors, which was fairly pleasurable (it was warm out, so I'm not sure how nice it would be in extreme temperatures). Our waiter was very kind and always open to assist us. The three of us started with a stuffed meatball appetizer, which was good but not worth the price. We got two meatballs...what's that?! For my entree I ordered the 10 oz New York Strip cooked medium well. It was definitely cooked and seasoned to perfection. On top of that, the French fries it was served with were amazing! The entree also came with a standard house salad which was also very good. Awesome steakhouse with a reasonable price tag.

    I hadn't heard of The Strip Joint until I saw an ad on Facebook advertising for Father's Day. By virtue of the name alone, I decided to try it. It is fantastic. Everything we (my husband, daughter & I) ordered was tasty and a healthy portion. We ordered the Steak Maison, Crab cakes, Stuffed Balls, Lobster Mac 'N Cheese, Green Beans, and the Key Lime Cheesecake. All made to perfection. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially our server, Jamie. Definitely a must go for those who love a meal well done!

    Service could have and should have been better with the small amount of customers when we arrived. Dodd was very good and the wait time for what we ordered was not bad at all. Waiter walked past our table a couple of times and did not remove plates. Forgot to place a drink order, keep in mind there was only 3 other tables with guest at the time and 2 servers working. May try it agai?

    We had visited the Strip Joint in its previous incarnation, as Sowe, but had not been back since it changed. The menu that was heavy on beef was a bit off-putting for dietary reasons. However, we went to the Strip Joint for Sunday brunch and found menu items, the Mussels Frittes and Breakfast Flatbread were both excellent. The service, as always, was excellent and entertaining. We'll be back.

    The Strip Joint is a great joint! We simply wanted a steak dinner. My daughter and I had a filet, my husband had the New York strip and my son-in-law had the burger. They were all done exactly as we asked. Salad and fries came with all the dinners. Delicious! Best fries I've had in a long time. Service was friendly. Only one complaint was it took too long for our 2nd round of drinks. Other than that I'd say our Sunday steak dinner was perfect. We'll be coming back agin.

    I love in the neighborhood of Strip Joint and really wanted to love it as much as I loved the space's legacy restaurant, SoWe, but unfortunately there was not so much to love. The atmosphere was ok, the music was VERY loud, the food was just ok (and that's being generous), and the service was non-attentive. We went on a Sunday night, there were only a handful of diners in the place and it still took 45 minutes to get our steak entrees and they were way overcooked. Our side dish didn't even come it with our entree, but after we were finished eating. Very unimpressed.

    I had the most flavorful filet I've ever had in my life here! They keep it simple, you choose the steak you want, and it comes with a salad and fries. Additional sides are listed at reasonable prices. It was definitely comperable in quality to the high end restaurants in center city. The servers were great, and super friendly! I gave the service 4 stars bc one person in our party had to wait a very long time for their drink, which I thought had less to do with the servers skills than it did with a slightly helicopter owner/manager that may have impeded their flow. The ambiance was very nice, warm and inviting. I gave it 3/5 bc there was an air vent under our table that was blasting ice cold air on us. Overall, a great place with great food.

    For the last night of a girls' weekend in Philly, we fount the "Joint." We expected great food, but even though we were in at 9:00pm on a Sunday night, the staff made us feel as if we'd just stopped by at a friend's home for a snack. Crab cakes first rate (and we're from DC and MD, so we know our crab), and a pork chop with creamed spinach and kale I'd put up against any DC steakhouse. And the frites!! I'll admit I almost took down a server brinting two burgers the size of Wisconsin to guests outside, but I'll save that for my next visit.

    When I told my wife I was taking my son to a Strip Joint, she was not pleased. Once she realized it was for a nice strip steak, all was forgiven. The prices are reasonable, the steak tasty and tender. Not "Ruth Chris" good, but a good value for the dollar. Nice selection of beers, and the apps were good as well.

    The quality was that of any big name steakhouse but the atmosphere, intimacy and price was that of a neighborhood restaurant. It is not a large menu but everything on the menu is well prepared and designed so that no matter which protein you choose all of the side dishes will work well with it. The drinks were top shelf liquor but we're not so strong as to be overpowering or to weak. I would say that if you enjoy a eating out this is a place worth trying. I would give it 4 stars out of 5.

    My girlfriend and I went there this past Friday. There was no wait for our reserved table, though we sat in the bar area (at a table next to the bar), which was fine. I'd say their food menu could in general be summed up as sort of small, but covering the bases well and very well-executed; their beer list was similar. They have a fantastic whiskey list for such a small place. Service was good - nothing extraordinary, but I have no complaints. My steak was cooked just slightly more than I ordered, but it was seasoned very well, so I didn't really mind, and it was delicious. The fries are good too. The fried pickles were good, but not as sour as I would have liked; still, I don't regret getting them. Overall quite a good find.

    Dined with table of 5. Overall good value. Our steaks were well seasoned and cooked to our specifications however our frites/fries were subpar. We each got a plate of the 'bottom of the basket' - fry nubs that were pretty heavily saturated in grease. I LOVE fries but couldn't eat them. Since we came for the steaks we weren't too upset about the fries but there is HUGE room for improvement in that area. Service was good, portions were good, steaks were good, prices were good. Salad and fries- meh, nothing to write home about. Great neighborhood spot.

    What a wonderful place to spend an evening! The ambience is wonderful. We were greeted by some very kind bartenders and the owner upon our arrival and then taken our table and waited on by a very friendly waiter named Owen. He knew the menu well and hooked us up with good wine and a great choice of beers. The mussels were OUTSTANDING, as well as my husband's burger and my filet. I plan on taking a crew back for dinner and also trying their brunch, which I have been told is very good. I am a Jersey girl, but heard about this place and so happy we tried it out!
