About Devil's Alley – Philadelphia

An urban alley interior meets the open-air energy of the park. Touches of Rittenhouse Square-area elegance add charm to the edgy concrete and metal interior. Natural light fills the space and an overlook loft and bar upstairs allows for a view of the park below. Flames from the open kitchen sear classics from slow-smoked ribs to spice-rubbed ribeyes. Ingredients are of the highest quality, with local produce and high end meats. Always affordable, the Devil’s Alley menu bridges the gap between American comfort cuisine and a backyard barbecue, allowing for a delicious lunch, fun dinner or late night bite. Enjoy liquors from around the world, eight seasonal local drafts and addictive signature cocktails. Service is prompt, knowledgeable and fun with attention to every detail of the dining experience. Devil"s Alley, an intersection of industrial and elegant where a touch of mischief unfolds ...

I found this restaurant only by a suggested search on OpenTable. If you like Center City Philadelphia this is a great location, it’s easier to find metered parking. The menu is the same as listed on this site it was very helpful in determining if it was a good choice, It was. The service was quick and polite, the food was more than a fair portion for the price. Everything on my plate was cooked to perfection. I had the Mixed Griddle and the Tasty Orange Crush cocktail.

The question about energy didn't address the one reason I wouldn't return ... just too darn loud. We moved from downstairs so it was better but still louder than anywhere I've been for a business lunch.

First time there - went for brunch. Food was OK, nothing special. One of us had the shrimp grits and eggs - that was one of the better entrees. One of the key ingredients in chipotle Bloody Mary was not in drink. Biggest complaint though - the restaurant was super super hot. Saw many diners posted about that - but thought maybe it was a seasonal thing. We ate there on Oct 8th and it was really uncomfortable - to the point we couldn't wait to leave. Based on all the complaints about temperature you would think they would fix the HVAC.

Fun, casual, young crowd with a great atmosphere. It was a little too noisy but still a great spot. Our server was in a big rush and not very friendly but it didn't stop us from having a good experience

Restaurant week menu had a variety of options and flavors. Every dish brought something new. I was wowed by each dish I tasted. My favorites being the butternut squash, the tuna, and the scallops especially the risotto. Carrot cake cupcakes were a treat! Awesome experience!

Service was incredibly slow and inefficient. Our waiter was very nice, but very forgetful...perhaps he had more tables than he could handle? The food was just ok, not as good as I remember but this was my first time having brunch there. I don't think I'd go for brunch again, but perhaps for lunch/dinner.

They must be under new management. The quality of the food has gone downhill. Overcooked, underspiced and just blah. They used to have creative food offerings and some of those have disappeared. I have been there twice now where the A/C either wasn't on or wasn't working. The bathrooms were filthy and the place was mostly empty. Our server was great but unfortunately this place is no longer as good as it used to be a few years ago.

Hostesses were confused about seating a table of 3;seemed to have to ask kitchen staff about every decision they made. Wait staff seemed overly busy and distracted. Brunch Food was not very good at all.

The food was good, but the service was slow (and forget -- we had to ask a few times before getting our drinks and after inquiring about coffee it still had yet to be made. When it did come everything was fine, pretty basic brunch foods with no extra flair. Probably wouldn't go back just because the food was not worth the slow service and loud atmosphere. Maybe at a less busy time.

The most amazing part was the bartender happily went across the street and purchased bottled water for me to drink at dinner!! Now that's service!!!
Thank you so much!!!!!

I've been here several times and each time was always great, except for this last one. I was here with my boyfriend for a quick lunch break. We had an hour and figured it would be enough time. In the end we had to rush to eat and pay, because our food took so long to come out. I arrived at 1250, ordered around 1, but we didn't get our food until 130. In that time our server stopped by once and apologized and said it would be a minute longer. I don't blame the server at all. I think the problem was in the kitchen and with the manager. During this whole ordeal we only had the one apology. Normally with a wait this long for a sandwich and sliders someone would come and say something, but nothing was said or done.

Looking for comfort food/ pub food... This was a great choice.
The calamari was well done and we had chorzio burger, Cuban and fish tacos... It was all well prepared. I will stop in again.

This was one of the worst meals I have had in 10 years in Philly. My medium burger literally came out raw. My friend had the crab burger, and it was practically inedible. Neither of us ate more than a few bites. There is also no AC, which is super hard in hot weather.

At first we were a little concerned, because our waiter had to be flagged down to take our order, coffee wasn't ready yet, and then he spilled it on the refill. BUT the coffee was awesome so it was worth it (I could've licked it off the table, it was so good, but that would've been gauche). The food was wonderful and we definitely would come back the next time we're in Philly.

I've been to Devil's Alley quite a few times, all for different occasions ranging from happy hour with coworkers to dinner with friends and date night with my fiancé. I've never been disappointed with the food or the atmosphere. I visited over the weekend for dinner with my bridal party for my bachelorette and it was just as good if not better than the other times I've been here. The food and drinks were great! I like the large menu selection. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The only downside I would say are the bathrooms. I think an upgrade is needed. But overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend Devil's Alley to my friends.

Great flavor and awesome SIPS food deals! Absolutely awesome food. Beer came room temperature (probably because it was part of the sips deal and was being restocked often). Not the biggest deal in the world, but odd that the waiter described the beer as "ice cold" while taking our order. When we mentioned that it wasn't even a little cold the response was "Oh I swear I just brought some to a different table and there was condensation. Want a cup of ice?" Otherwise great service, but weird solution.
