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.

P&K was a great spot for brunch! We enjoyed the beet salad appetizer, cheddar and ramp omelette, and the burger was fantastic! Highly recommend.

We’ve been coming to P&K since it opened and we’re never disappointed. The menu and specials are refreshed often. The bar cocktails are well crafted and the beer selections usually have a gem or two. Noise can be a problem in the main room with the bar especially early dinners with parents who negotiate with their screaming child instead of taking them out for a walk to settle down. No consideration for other diners. Kids can’t behave...Applebee’s or take out. Anyway, service is exceptional without intruding. Food quality, creativity, portions and value are always worth the trip.

Every thing was great except there was an unruly child melting down at the table behind us and that put a damper on the experience, so we removed ourselves. Appetizers were great and the special pasta was also exceptional.

My husband and I have been coming here for about 3 years. I was a huge fan of their burger. The French fried onions, whisky sauce and skinny shoe string fries. However, we went this past Saturday and their burger had changed. The burger had regular fried onions, regular fries and dijonaise sauce. I was so disappointed, the burger was just okay. I most likely wouldn’t come back from the burger, and would go somewhere else. We asked the server and she said they change their burger all the time? However, every time I’ve gone it’s been amazing until this past visit.

The grilled Romaine lettuce and the Brussels sprouts were very good, as was the service. The major drawback was the noise level, which had all the diners yelling to be heard. As a result, Pub & Kitchen is not a great place for conversation. It would benefit from more sound-absorbing materials on the walls and ceiling.

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.

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.

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.
