The Twisted Tail
We love this place for havingWe love this place for having good live blues 7 nights a week. On top of that the good is quite good, I would only ask for a bit more spice in the green beam casserole and really wish they'd bring the collards back to the menu. Would also like to see a spicy Cajun fish dish and pecan pie and/or bread pudding for dessert. The drinks are great, I love the Sazerac, so hard to find up north and done so well by the Tail.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth a visit!!!We found this place by accident on a day trip and visited it for a drink. We were so impressed with it that we planned an overnight trip so we could come down and experience the food and music. NY to Philadelphia was worth was worth every mile we drove. We sampled several of their bar creations all were unique and tasty. We sampled several things from their menu and we were not disappointed. Their charcoal grill appetizers for all wonderfully presented and simply delicious. Our entrees were nothing less than spectacular. to listen to live jam session goin to listen to live jam session going on. The bottom line is that we love this place and intend on coming back just for The Tail.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFun, Food, and Rock and RollSouthern style cooking done well. Service attentive with a smile. Lots of live music downstairs and upstairs, but a little too loud. A jovial crowd of 20 and 30 somethings with a few oldies like us included. A fun and tasty night!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTwisted Tail was awesome!Great atmostphere, cool wallpaper, awesome band (we saw Popa Chubby), great service, and amazing food. My parents had come up to visit me in Philly, and I found this place online searching for somewhere to go on a Saturday night. We paid $15 in advance to see Popa Chubby and then made our reservations at 7:30. The wait staff was always there to refill your water and ask you if you want more drinks. I love the bourbon and scotch choices. I got the one bourbon, one scotch, one beer option for $15 and it was awesome! The only problem I had was the Prix-Fixed menu. We aren't the type of people that like to get an appetizer, entree, AND dessert. We like to share an appetizer, and dessert. Overall, it was a great place and I will be back!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb food, great drinks...We both enjoyed our entrees. Highly recommend the veal. Beignets were a great way to end this meal; enough to share with 2 or 3 people. A great find for two foodies! Must check out upstairs bar and music after dinner! Food, drinks, music, and dancing...a wonderful night out in Philly!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my 91 year old momI took my 91 year old mom out for Mother's Day, Although Twisted Tail did not have the Barbeque ribs listened on the menu, the Capon dish was delicious. As was the Fried Chicken in a Bag that my son ordered (large meaty pieces) and the Crawfish Mac & Cheese.
I would recommend this spot for the whole family but if you are bringing senior relatives, like 91 year old moms, don't forget the earplugs when the music is playing. It's a little loud, which I guess a Blues Joint should be.
Overall, good food, good music, good times!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had a larger group than expectedthank you to the management for accomadating our large group saturday night!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceI would highly recommend the Twisted Tail to anyone who likes great Blues music, great food and a wonderful atmosphere.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food / Great StaffFrom greeter to server, the service and food were excellent. Will definitely go back again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only negative from ourThe only negative from our experience at Twisted Tail was the server. The gentleman was very laxed, was not on top of drink refills, nor checking on our meals. When he was told our party did a pre fix menu, we felt he did bare minimum service to accomodate.
The meal was delicious!! Terrific drink selection!!
The lighting in the restaurant was great, noise level was low enough for our party to hold discussion!
I would definitely go back!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome eats!We had an outstanding time at The Twisted Tail. We had a large party of 10 and what was appreciated the hostess called the day before and day of our dinner to let me know what we should expect. Our menu was excellent! LOVED the chicken in a bag! Kudos to our AWESOME waiter Connor! He was very helpful in navigating the menu and new items. Everything tasted delicious. Everyone agreed that the restaurant was one that we would go back to without hesitation. We had a wonderful time and were sad that we had to miss the live music. Our girlfriend was celebrating her 25th anniversary in our organization and she felt very celebrated at the restaurant. Thank you for great service, great food, and a great experience!!!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy girlfriend and I stoppedMy girlfriend and I stopped in here a few weeks ago. This place is great fun. We had live music playing right next to us the whole meal, and the offered some great drink specials, a favorite being the one bourbon, one scotch and one beer special. The food was really high quality as well. I didnt expect food that good to come out of the kitchen. It took us back to North Carolina a little bit through nostalgia so it was pretty fun. We will definitely be back again.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the drinks! TerrificLoved the drinks! Terrific selection of bourbons and whiskeys, but the food was just so-so. Some of us LOVED our choices(burgers, trout, veal) and some were very disappointed (most apps and extremely bland salads). Would probably give it a second chance.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the energy and atmosphere.Enjoyed the energy and atmosphere. Appetizers and dessert were tasty and intriguing, entrees were standard fare. Drink menu extensive.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat blues barI made a reservation for two because I wanted a good spot by the stage. I got a couple of calls from the waiters asking me if I was still showing up. I think they were very thoughtful. I was disappointed when I got there: we were assigned seats at the back with no view to the stage. I eventually managed to find two good seats near the stage and was able to enjoy Lisa Chavous show. Excellent blues bar, the food, drink and service are great. I'll definitely go back there.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my boyfriend for hisI took my boyfriend for his birthday to Twisted Tail. I wasnt sure if he would like it being its a scene I recently exposed him to. But I'm happy to say it was the first time we were both there and we LOVED it. The whole atmosphere & live music was GREAT and I wish I remembered our server, but she was a gem and very knowledgeable of the drinks & menu. So I recommend this spot to anyone who enjoys good food, great atmosphere & good drinks...KUDOS3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSo we actually never ate here,So we actually never ate here, because they had just received our reservation and they didn't have a table immediately available, but they had a great bartender who explained the specials to us, and a very helpful staff who made us feel very welcome. The noise level was too high for one member in our party so we moved on, but the rest of us would have stayed.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here for a first date.Went here for a first date. I had never ordered any food before and was glad I came back for dinner. We ordered five appetizers and split them. Then we ordered two flights of whiskey. Highly recommend.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
