    What a diamond in the rough. The rough of Philadelphia. The food and service is top notch. Great selection of beers as well. You really should get reservations if you want a table to eat. They do themes there. Like up until this week it’s been Christmas. Next week starts mardi Gras. Can’t wait to go back.

    The food and drinks were AMAZING! We stopped here before going to the Eagles game and made reservations before coming, we were a little late due to traffic and parking but were still seated right away. Food took average/a little long to come out but it was all very good! Perfect for a date night or dinner with the girls.

    For how cool this place is decorated, I honestly didn’t expect the food to be THIS GOOD!!! We had a great time, the wait staff was all very nice and helpful. Hate to bash another bar/restaurant in the process of this review, but my god never go to Tinsel for your Christmas fix again! This is the SPOT!!!

    I heard good things about this place from a friend and after checking out their Instagram I was super excited to try it out. Unfortunately, this place was super disappointing. First off, the service is subpar. We sat down and was immediately asked if we wanted drinks besides water and we had barely looked at the menu. The waitress said she'd come back in a few mins. After about 20 mins of waiting (and deciding on all our drinks and food items...) she finally came back. She asked if it was okay if the appetizer came out with our meals, which I guess we didn't mind but that's kinda weird as that's not usually how appetizers work, but whatever ‍ The food was horrible. Honestly, I think you can get a better burger at McDonald's. The mozz sticks with the Doritos coating had zero flavor which is super confusing. The chicken sandwich had literally zero taste as there was no sauce on it. The Mac and Cheese was okay, super creamy but nothing special. I was going to order a milkshake, but after spending $18 on a burger that didn't come with any sides, I didn't want to then spend another $16-$17 on a milkshake. They look good, but unfortunately I won't be returning to find out if they are. I am honestly very confused about the hype of this place. Maybe you could come for drinks and a milkshake, but I'd skip the food all together. Also, beware of the automatic 20% gratuity. Pretty sure this is why the service is lacking. They already know they're getting a tip, so no need to try so hard. The only saving grace this place had was it's decorations for the Christmas season. Beautiful! However, that's all I got. There are so many better places in the city I'd rather spend my money at.

    The vibe was everything! The milkshakes are creative and tasty. The pig in a blanket wreath was way overcharges however. The holiday decorations were abundant and very fun. Our waiter was very good. The bathrooms are the smallest bathroom I have ever been in and very uncomfortable.

    Service was POOR (wait then wait then wait), and they certainly were not short staffed (I counted) or crowded. Only redeeming quality was dessert.....which we almost didn't get because of the incredible amount of time it took for staff to take our order. When we received the bill, we understood. They automatically added a tip to our bill.

    Great ambiance during the holiday season. The place is small but they made good use of the space they had. Our waitress was not very attentive and did not listen too well when taking our order as she did not bring our correct order.We had to flag her down when asking for silverware, drinks, etc. she did not check on us once to see how things were. We went after Christmas so it was not crazy busy. We had cheeseburgers and chicken tenders but everything was a La carte so we ordered french fries. Food was good but the French fries were cold. Holiday cocktails were tasty but a bit overpriced for the small glass.. My daughter enjoyed her milkshake. Won’t rush back next year but glad we tried it.

    I would recommend heading to this place for the boozy milkshakes and the atmosphere of the Christmas pop-up. The food was okay, and the service was extremely slow (30 minutes to get our drinks)- definitely a better bar than a restaurant!

    We had a great time, only part that was a bit rough was first getting there it was so crowded it took us 15+ minutes to even squeeze through to get to a hostess to check in for our reservation. Might have helped staff to have someone closer to the door or even a sign that there was no capacity for walk ins. Great holiday spot and very fun overall, staff was great!

    It was super cute inside and I loved the decorations. Upon walking in, the entryway is super small and there’s tables directly to the left and the bar directly in front so it’s tight, uncomfortable and awkward to stand and wait. The host was very friendly and let us know our table was almost ready and kept us updated. He was also handling walk ins as they came and seemed to have a handle on all things going on. We did have a reservation and were taken right on time and seated at our table exactly on time. I was pleasantly surprised by that since the restaurant was packed. They do a good job sticking to their times. As soon as we got to the table, our server greeted us and got our drink order and appetizer order. Service was great and the food came out quickly. We ordered our entrees and the food came out great and hot and well made. No complaints at all. I ordered a holiday milkshake and loved it. For my husband and I, it was worth the drive and it was a nice time. There are a few areas for improvement I’d like to suggest. There’s no where to stand and take unobstructed pictures. I know space is tight, but I would have loved to get a picture of my husband and I in front of some of the decorations. The pictures I took all had people in them and just didn’t do it justice. Also, as someone who is sober I would have loved some mocktail options and more than just two milkshakes to choose from. I kept seeing the specialty cocktails coming from the bar and I would have loved a fun little drink garnished with gingerbread and marshmallows or a cute colored drink with a Christmas ornament in it. I understand it’s a bar, but children and families come in to eat as well as sober people like myself who are coming to visit for the ambiance and decor and get in the holiday spirit. We really had a great time though and I recommend everyone try to get to see this place while it’s decorated. Staff was great, food was great and decor was very well done. Thanks for a great time!
