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 ...

Came here because I heard great things about Devil's Alley, especially for Happy Hour. I scheduled a friends get together this past Friday. The food was definitely a hit! However, the drinks were horrible. In any case, I would definitely recommend/suggest that anyone check out Devil's Alley.

Everyone enjoyed their meals and the drink selection was great! We also had a fairly last minute reservation (booked on a Thursday for a Saturday) for a larger group and they were able to accommodate us, so that was a plus!

Pretty casual spot with matching menu- the service was slow and it took a long time to be approached. Drinks also room quite some time and then the check was just dropped on the table mid meal. Really? Sandwiches were tasty the pulled pork and Cali Turkey.

Had never been before, but heard good things. I had a couple of friends in town visiting from NYC and wanted to take them somewhere we could talk and get good food and drinks. Service was quick and accurate. The portions were large. Had to take most of it home. The food was good. Everybody was friendly. The graffiti downstairs was cool. I’ll be back for more crab cakes and pulled pork.

I Always have a good meal and a great beer here. The food is familiar but creative, so it's a nice place to go if you want something a little different but might not have the most adventurous palette. My go to is their Fried Green Tomato BLT.
I used Devil's Alley as an introduction to Philly restaurants for my mother, who had never spent a night in the city. She was very excited by the atmosphere of the restaurant (business casual grunge) and said the crab cakes were delicious.
And a special thank you to the wait staff on St. Patrick's day. It was busy and loud, but they were on top of everything.

We are 4 adults who went to celebrate a new job. The food was excellent! Vibe is cool and good for date night or friend gathering. Nice casual clothes works. Waitress may have been new. She was slow to take our order,
Slow to bring our drinks, brought us a glass of whiskey that belonged to another table and didn’t realize it for a good 15 minutes. Then she proceeded to take the drink from our table and give it to the customer! We drank from it!! Next-My husband ordered a margarita. When the bill came she charged him $16.50 for a small glass mostly filled with ice. I told the manager and was told that she would make sure we got a few drinks in the future. Other than the bad service-I completely recommended Devils Alley

I was very disappointed. I made a reservation for my family days before the Eagles parade because I wanted someplace we could eat while the crowds thinned out after the parade was over. When I got to the restaurant, we waited 15 min and no host ever appeared at the front to even speak with us. It was clear the restaurant was overrun and out of control. We had to leave the city without eating and missed the experience of staying around all the other fans after the parade. Don't take reservations if you aren't prepared and organized enough to honor them.

Found the ambiance and food agreeable -- possibly because of low expectations after YELP reviews. Salt, pepper and catsup were on the table, and were needed for an uninspired duck pot pie. The steak was perfect as it was served, though. Fried cauliflower with chili mayo, fried green tomatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts were all very good. I LOVED the "potted brownie." We ate early in the evening during restaurant week and thoroughly enjoyed sitting next to the fireplace upstairs. I can imagine when the place is crowded as it would be for lunch or happy hours, service would be more difficult. Plan accordingly.

I’m disappointed to report my recent lunch to Devil’s Alley was horrible. It was clear they were slammed, which should have been predicted due to the women’s march nearby, but understand sometimes the unpredictable happens and we anticipated delays. Unfortunately, it was much worse than expected.

We came with a reservation for 4. We were first seated at a round table clearly big enough to fit only two, with additional chairs squeezed in, and were accommodated when we requested a sufficiently sized table for 4. Yay for that!

Then... It took a least 10 minutes to order drinks, at which time we also ordered food to expedite eating. 2 of our 4 drinks were delivered to the table 15 minutes after that...we had to stop our server to inquire about them and that’s when we got the first two drinks. We didn’t see our server for another 10 at which time we asked for the additional two, one which was a soda. It was clear she had a tap to use and got the soda to us within minutes. The last drink was alcoholic and took another 5. It should be noted the food came while waiting for the last drink, which is evidence of how long it took to receive our drinks. Our food was set down - but one meal was missing and we had no utensils. 10 mins passed and we saw a busser, asked for utensils and he agreed but continued to clean the nearby table...the silverware came 5 mins after that, around the time when the last meal was delivered. There were also delays getting our check. Not only did our server not service our table, but she was nowhere to be find when we needed to flag her down.

It’s clear they were way understaffed or untrained. I’ve had marginal service at this venue in the past but this was too awful to overlook - was one of the worst restaurant experiences I’ve had since moving to philly 2.5 years ago. I do not plan to visit again.

They were extremely busy so it was understandable that the food and drinks took so long to get to the table. Food was good overall except for French toast that was undercooked and mushy on the inside.

Sat downstairs towards the front - unsteady table, waiter served all dishes on top of each other within minutes (could have been because of restaurant week)

My friends and I decided on this place for restaurant week. The food was pretty horrible! It had no taste or flavor and was just down right nasty. I was so excited because this was the first place that I went to over the past week for Restaurant week that offered ice cream, which I love! I didn’t even eat the ice cream and cookies, which says a lot because I ALWAYS eat dessert. The waiter was cool. He apologized and said that he would tell the cooks, but not once did he offer to send a manager over. On the flip side, the drinks weren’t bad until our pitcher of lemonade was brought out with blonde hair on it 🤢. I would not recommend this place if you like good food!!!
