Food, service, extensive beer and drink menus, even ambiance 😊
ok food, good deal for mimosa flight, the music is just extremely loud had to shout the entire time to hear each other.
Our server and the manager were so nice. They gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne for my friend, the bride. Food was outstanding!
Always great food, great beer, great service at Tap House.
First time at City Tap House food and service was great. Enjoyed night out with the family. Will go back again.
Good food, drinks and service for a pretty good value. It was just really loud.
My friends and I had a lovely time here for brunch. The atmosphere and food were both great and our server (Freddy) was amazing! I definitely recommend!
Host was very nice and took us right back to our table where we sat for over 20 minutes until a server came over and brought us water and said our server would be over soon. Over server came over about 5-10 minutes later and seemed overwhelmed. Not very personable AT ALL. Food was ok but not great.
Beer selection was very good! The food we had certainly did not disappoint. It's worth the trip.
Loud as this is a huge bar but the dining area was off to the side. Still not great for conversation but good food and service.
We were early for our reservation but they were able to seat us without any problem. Waitstaff was slow but friendly. Burger ordered well done came out rare, otherwise the food was very good. We had lunch on a Saturday afternoon while at least one university was having a family weekend, which probably explains the elevated noise. Overall a good experience, would come again when we visit Philadelphia.
Food was good, great location! Service started off really well, but they did sort of forget about us for a while. We had someone join us late and server took forever to notice and come take an order for him. And they left a side of fries we'd ordered sitting under the lights for forever so we ended up not even wanting those! But everything was good overall!
Food was really good, however, service was very slow!
Nice table. Room and time to chill, talk and catch up. The food was good too, with many refills. And enjoyed the many football games. Cheers.
We were seated promptly and the food and drinks were great. There were a few mixups with some of the food orders and it took a long time to get the check, but otherwise it was a good experience.
Went on Tuesday night, so not too busy. The food was great and the waitress was attentive. First visit, will definitely go back!
Great place to watch football if you follow out it town teams
Our server was new but she did a great job
Went around 5:30 on a Monday for Margarita Monday! Margarita pitchers are just $20!
Our hummus, burrata appetizers were tasty. Pizzas were very good as was the burger but my turkey avocado club had over toasted bread (too blackened) and sandwich was very dry. The side salad was better.
Service was bad but the server said she got slammed with multiple tables all at once and then took 25% off of our bill to make up for it so we were happy with that! Food was okay.
a few of my most closes fiends ate there and it was excellent!
The food was very good. The staff was very mellow. The location is in the U Penn dorm area, so it’s much more casual than its website implies. Would go back.
Wings were not as good as they were a few years ago when I came. Only one option for wing flavor.
Love! Try the penang muscles, they are so good.
I love this place. Food and ambiance are great. The server I had Friday night was also great (table 81 in the back, girl with dreads) HOWEVER, citytap in university city has the WORST bartenders I have ever encountered. So RUDE!!!!! They don’t make eye contact or even acknowledge your presence when you walk up to the bar!! They actually IGNORE customers for long stretches of time and when they do choose to recognize that you exist and they need you to make money, they treat you like they’re doing you a favor getting you a drink. I gave 1 star only because of the cool waitress who served me that night when I left the bar to eat at a table. Time to clean house boss.
The restaurant was so hot. It was probably cooler outside on the patio. After we were seated we must have sat for about 10-15 minutes before a anyone acknowledged us. An apparent mix up of tables. Our appetizer came out with our dinner. Food was very good but we had trouble enjoying it because of the sweat dripping. Service was just ok. We were afterthought and our waiter kept disappearing.
Great food! Excellent service!
The food was excellent, however the music was a bit too loud which made conversation difficult. The service was on the slower slide. We had our toddler with us and while the food and staff were great, the slower service made it challenging. On the upside, there is plenty of space outside for our toddler to run around and the kid sized pizza was HUGE (about 10 inches in diameter with a full 8 slices)!!! Would definitely return for the food.
Food was delish, waitstaff perfect, what more can you ask for?
I go here SPECIFICALLY for the shrimp and grits. I was so upset to find out they were removed from the menu. Hush Puppies were still available and DELICIOUS as ever.
Service was superb as usual.
Very good food and beer selection. Nice outdoor eating area. Good place for a casual meal.
Great food and service! Great beer list too. Will plan to visit again soon
Food was good, ordered 2 appetizers and 3 meals (1 kid). Food service was prompt. The drink menu is good, our server did not know much about the beers, which I would think should be a priority at a tap house. Overall, a good meal and a good value.
It was very hot and although not crowded we didn’t get attention for about 10 minutes from being seated. Not even water.
Sought out the venue for a specific beer week event that was advertised to start at 11:00a. Upon arrival (after 11) kegs were not tapped and ready to pour. In addition ordered a snack, while scrumptious did not include all items in the description which was disappointing. Staff was friendly and venue was beautiful... great for a ladies brunch!
We loved out waitress Sarah, she was awesome and super sweet!
I was served hair with salad on top. So disgusting and so unappetizing. The server didn’t seem all too apologetic but she did bring me another salad. And then she charged me for it. Ummm, really?
Diane was a great waitress, very friendly and attentive. Turkey club on a gluten-free roll was delicious as was the garden salad that came with it. Kudos to City Tap House for not charging me for the gluten-free bun. I’ll definitely be back even though the music was too loud for my comfort. Thanks for a great lunch!!
I always recommend CityTap to people if they’re in the area. Great food, great people! Always a happy atmosphere, very upbeat. The bar has pretty much everything you could ask for, Bloody Marys are best! Chicken wings are a must & if you’re there on a Monday, totally go with the taco special!
