For more than nine years, P&K has been one of Philadelphia’s quintessential restaurants for quality dishes, craft cocktails and elevated farm to table offerings. Pub & Kitchen has been a comforting neighborhood staple with its selection of local beers on tap (“Pub”) and mouth-watering gourmet fare (“Kitchen”). Menu additions like fresh seasonal pastas and amazing seafood helped us garner a “three-bell review”: from Inquirer food critic Craig LaBan. The ever-evolving menu places an emphasis on seasonal ingredients and satisfying flavors. At the bar, enjoy a quirky selection of bar snacks, crafted cocktails or a nice glass of wine. Brunch offerings include dutch baby pancakes, classic egg dishes and powerful cocktails like the Wrangler, our spicy take on a Bloody Mary.

The food and service at Pub & Kitchen are great. I had the seafood pierogies for an appetizer and they were tremendous. For my main course I had the pork chop - it was a very nice piece of meat that was cooked perfectly. The sauces of both dishes were excellent. The one drawback to the restaurant is the noise level. We were seated in the small room to the side and large table was seated in there as well. We could barely hear each other talk. Not sure if there is anything the restaurant can do about this but I would still go back for the great food.

Very good food, just a bit short of great, supported by excellent service. A very friendly neighborhood restaurant that presents a feel at home atmosphere. Bartenders treated you like an old friend and P anticipate they will be tasty, too!

Stopped in for dinner before heading to hear a concert by the orchestra.

Sampled the brussels sprout appetizer, the I split the filet and my son had their hamburger. Both entrees were cooked to a medium rare that perfectly done. The meat and the sides blended well and the fries with the burger were very tasty.

The waitress was attentive and friendly, without being intrusive.

An enjoyable meal with really tasty food.

My friends and I met at Pub and Kitchen for Sunday Brunch and everything was great from the atmosphere to the food. I ordered the spicy Bloody Mary and tuna toast and both were fantastic! I would come back again for sure!

Usually love it here but had a bad experience. Ordered the omelet which did not contain all of the ingredients mentioned on the menu and the toast was black on both sides completely. Additionally, the server did not check on us once until we went out of our way to get our check.

I’ve been here a lot and always like it but service was rough during my last visit- two of the three entrees were brought out 15 minutes before the last and I had to get another waitress to grab me a drink because ours went missing. Normally really like it so hoping it was just a one off!

I went here with some friends for a late dinner. The ambience is really nice and it has a comfortable, laid back feel. The menu has good variety and so did the specials. I opted for the 12 oz NY strip. I was thoroughly disappointed. The meat was bland and undercooked (I like a bleeding medium rare so this is saying something). Quite let down for a $32 steak. Will not be returning or recommending to others.

The mushroom omelette had a weird taste, almost unpleasant. On the pricey side for $16. The salad was fresh and lovely, that was the best part, as was the sour dough toast.

Advertised restaurant week special as 4 course meal - at restaurant they stated this was a “typo” despite being printed on the menu and website, and provided a menu completely different from what was advertised on the restaurant week website. We selected this restaurant based on the 4 courses and the menu originally advertised, so it was disappointing. Also, server kept forgetting items. Overall, unimpressive but not awful.

I eat here every time thinking it is going to be good, and it isn't!
The service is really bad.The food is never good,but sometime awful.
The last time we were there we were the only people in the back room ,and we were ignored.
We eat out often,and live in the "neighborhood".We feel with a little EFFORT the restaurant could be
good.Instead it feels like a high school or community college cafeteria.

I used to come here a lot and the food was always quite good. But this time my son and I both had meals we did not enjoy. The burger which used to be wonderful was just ok and I had a salad drenched in dressing. Hopefully it was just an off night.

It was extremely loud. My party could not hear each other well but we got over that. The burger was delicious and cooked perfectly. The Brick Chicken entree was interesting. The chicken itself was good but the rice was extremely hard and undercooked. The Brick Chicken entree was honestly a waste of money because we could only eat one part of the whole meal. The calm appetizer and the lobster roll entree was probably the best and tastiest parts of the experience. I would return for drinks at the bar only next time.

Ran into my daughter, husband and Grandson at your restaurant . they were leaving with their food packed up it’s disappointing you only have booster seats Please invest In some high chairs. It would have been a nice dinner had their son not had to sit in the booth.
