Eulogy Belgian Tavern is Philadelphia's Premier Beer & Dining Institution featuring 21 drafts & 300 different bottled beers. The food is award winning & noted for plump, juicy mussels in a variety of beer & other sauces, as well as the city's best hamburger made with seven secret spices & the only authentic double fried Flemish Belgian style fries found in Philadelphia. The restaurant is owned by a Belgian American family from Brugge Belgium & staffed with a few employees on visas from Belgium, two other attributes which make this the authentic Belgian experience.

Rated as the fifth best beer restaurant in the United States by & winner of numerous awards on with friendly & knowledgeable staff, Eulogy Belgian Tavern is a dining experience you must see to believe.
For the more adventurous call for a seat in the "coffin room", a small room in the back of the second floor where the three tables are coffins. In high demand so call early.

This would be a great choice if you are looking for a frat house atmosphere with terrible service. The floors were sticky, the food greasy, the service lackadaisical.

this place needs a really good clean, look to Monks as your benchmark.

Beer was warm, even requested "cold" beer was warm. Server seemed really indifferent but somehow came to light when it came to bringing our bill.

It's a pity, really wanted to enjoy this.

The place was awfully dirty. The food and service were certainly OK, but your shoes stuck to the floor when you walked across the room.

Basic hamburger place with a bar
Tight space

Eulogy has the best moules frites that I have had outside of Belgium! The burger was great and the beer is always top notch!

Our biggest complaint was that the beer was warm. I spend 4-6 weeks a year in Belgium and they server the beer cold, very cold. Not sure why a "Belgian Tavern" does this. Perhaps it was a fluke the day we were there... The food was excellent as was the service. Very friendly staff and just a lot of fun!

The service was excellent, the Beer was fantastic, food ok, Belgian Fritas and Fish/Chips batter was great, but the fish were just undercooked at bit and the Coke was watery. The place is a real dive, but is unique. Have a beer and the Belgian fries..

Six of their tap lines were down the night we were there. They were all Belgium beers. We were offered local and other nationally distributed beers that you can get anywhere. The waitress then suggested the bottled beer list. That started the "we are out of that one" every time we picked a bottle. It was disappointing to finally be at the Belgium beer mecca only to find out they did not have a good chunk of their Belgium beers available. The food was very good.

The chicken fried steak is the bomb-diggity! And the shrimp and grits ... and I don't even like grits!
