We arrived at Perch Pub and had to wait a strong ten minutes for beers to arrive before dinner. I ordered a soup and had to wait a long time for that to arrive. No sooner did the soup arrive then my meal on top of that. Our server was not observant and struggled to identify the problems we had for dinner. Then, my friend ordered a Rueben and asked for mustard no thousand island. When he sandwich came soggy and sloppy, no mustard was given but thousand island on the side. I have been to this place before and had excellent service with food; however, this visit was not enjoyable at all.

Yummy meatloaf and steak. Love the location up high overlooking center city. Very sad this place is closing!

Staff could not be better for serving us and making sure we were out in time for theater performance. Food was great. Really enjoyed the experience.

Happy hour can't be beat, but it gets crowded. They play good music. It can get a little loud, but it's fun and high energy. All ages.

Food is also surprisingly good. Better than you might expect actually. Love the veggie burger, fish tacos, and fries.

Nice views of city. They get you in and out if you are seeing a show.

This is a place to have a good lunch with a nice atmosphere and view and still pay a reasonable amount for lunch.

I was seated in the back room. Disappointing. I love the Mediterranean sandwich, I just wish they'd bring back the lamb burger. That was fabulous.

It's like they have closed already and don't care anymore.

We go to Perch Pub often before events at Kimmel or Wilma. Food is reliable. Service was slow and uneven this time which is unusual. I think they were short-handed.

I really wanted this to be Terriffic, alas it was serviceable. My most needed feature for the day's pre-matinee luncheon was location, and for that it was perfect...a ten!! So, just for a drink before or after a performance at any of the Avenue of the Arts/ Broad Street venues it should be okay. Good simple wine list, extensive beer list, some interesting sounding entre offerings, but we chose main dish salads. Greens were overly wet, and unnessarily cold, with watered down or very light dressing. My partner ordered cranberry juice which was also watered down by ice.
Maybe another day, another time, another menu...

I had been to the Perch Pub on two previous occasions, but only ever ordered drinks and "snacks". Those had been great so I decided to try for dinner this time. My food was delicious! Got the Italiano sandwich and it was really good. Comes with a house salad, but I substituted that for Caesar salad which was also good. Was a yummy filling meal. The Malanga Chips with garlic aioli dip are really good- I've gotten them all three times that I have been here now. The place was packed on a Thursday night so I am glad that I made a reservation. The other two times I had gone it was almost empty, but once was the day after a snow storm so that may have had something to do with it. Nice big windows and a nice view of Broad Street from the second level "perch"! Will definitely be returning to try even more menu items!

Was impressed at how quickly we were served. We didn't try their extensive beer menu, but my companion enjoyed her hard cider. Were seated by window and enjoyed the street view. Food was good.

It was good, except for the pancakes. A little dry and cake, not enough strawberries.

We had dinner here on Friday, March 4. I had the salmon dinner which was very dry. It seemed it it was sitting under the hot lights for a long while. My friend had the burger. This was a good choice. This is a burger and sandwich place NOT for real dinners. My mistake.

Was there for lunch. The food was very good. They have a nice beer list. The service was very good and friendly.
However, they are on the second floor. They do not have an elevator just a spiral staircase. If you have problems with steps, you may want to go elsewhere.
