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.

Haven’t been to P&K in years. This was a brunch visit. It was good, but nothing special really.... Baked eggs with fennel sausage in tomato sauce, similar to a shakshuka, was decent. Friend had an egg sandwich. Also decent. We heard their Bloody Mary’s were out of the world. Nope. My regular one was tiny, with one lonely olive, served in a wine glass, weirdly. Friends bloody was the Wrangler, a spicy version. Tasted ok, but was a salt bomb. Everything was overpriced. The bacon was super fatty and disappointing. Oh well. Service was great - friendly and attentive.

Back again to phenomenal oysters
The East-Coast oysters at six for $10. are the most delightful bargain in town. The oysters are so good, don't put any sauce or vinaigrette on them; they are superb by themselves and much better than the buck-a-shuck at the Oyster House, I am not happy to say. I used to love coming to the Oyster House on Sansom. I can't say I've liked anything else at Pub and Kitchen, not so much the famous hamburger and not the brussel sprouts with grated cheese on top. I say these are the best oysters in town and a phenomenal bargain at Happy Hour (4-6!). As for the sauce, ask for bread. They don't have oyster crackers or saltines, OK. But you ask for bread, and they give lovely slices of grilled baguette. Get that to savor their excellent oyster sauces, but the oysters are too delicious on their own to put the sauce on. All the specialty beer was half price too, a big deal, but not for me, and I thought the cocktails were a bit watery.

We were visiting from out of town and celebrating our anniversary. The food was outstanding, cocktails and beer were great and the service was fantastic. It was St. Patrick’s day - so probably a little louder than normal, but I was glad we were seated in the back room.

Very good, we enjoy P&B but wish the menu were a little more extensive. Sometimes we bring friends who aren’t familiar and they’re surprised at how limited it is. That said what we chose was delicious, root vegetable pie, vegetarian pasta, Brussels sprouts, wings. All were perfectly prepared and flavorful. Not your typical bar food!!

The hostess was very accommodating with our families as we had two children in car seats. The back room is just as fun and cozy as the bar area. Service was great and attentive. Their happy hour deals are fantastic. Probably the best brussel sprouts I’ve ever eaten. The burger lived up the hype. As a party of 4 adults we are our way through most of the menu and everything was great. It was a perfect place to get together with friends and we will definitely be back since they were helpful in getting us seated with a baby, which is a challenge at most places.

Came for brunch with a few friends and had a great experience. We had a wonderful spot outside on an absolutely gorgeous day.
Our waiter was great and accommodating and let us put two tables together as we actually knew the people next to us.

Food was fantastic. Great restaurant, service and food!

Great spot for dinner with friends. Food was great -- ordered a whole bunch of apps to share, including brussel sprouts, calimari, oysters, and the pretzel. All were great! The entree selection is limited and some of the entrees are expensive -- we all went with the burger, which was delicious (and a reasonable price). Cocktails were approachable and well made. Service was excellent. Would return!

Food is overpriced for its quality and portion. They charged almost $30 for a menu item "market fish" which is just a small piece of sea bass and some garnish from left over vegetables.

Overall it was pretty good. The food was really good despite the limited options. The burger was great and cooked to order though be sure to specify how you would like it cooked. The handmade pasta was really tasty however the portion size was tiny, my guest got this dish and we had to stop somewhere on the way home as he did not get enough to eat, that was a little disappointing. The experience would have been much better if we had been seated further away from the bar. The noise level was the loudest I have ever experienced while in a restaurant or bar. It was seriously deafening. At first I let it go because I figure all the other seats were taken but after getting up to use the restroom there was another dining room with only two parties in it that they failed to mention. Despite the good food and pretty good service, the good and the bad are about equal.

We went to Pub and Kitchen during restaurant week. The food was good, but not fantastic. Our biggest complaint was that the restaurant was only 30% full but it took 1 hour and 20 minutes for our food to arrive!

Darling place with a bar food type menu that was okay to good and varied drink selection but way too loud and cramped for dinner and any conversation. Lucky walk ups get tables outside which in a lovely night would seem delightful and quiet enough o have a conversation. If you make a reservation then apparently these tables are not available to you.

I live in the neighborhood and am constantly taking friends to what used to be one of my favorite local restaurants. However, on July 4 it was horrible and disappointing--I'm hoping that perhaps they were training a new chef? Pretzel with crab hard to eat , hamburger over-salted, beignets equally terrible and tasteless. The waitress, however, was great--she's a regular.
I won't be going back anytime soon after this experience.

Completely underwhelmed by everything. Service was beyond slow and not attentive. Only one glass of water is standard apparently. The fish and chips for $20 was literally the most expensive item on our $90 bill and it was one super small fish stick of fish under 5 undercooked potatoes wedges. Super disappointed for a $100 meal.

Normally the back is pretty quiet but really unpleasant AC or generator creates awful vibration.
Terrific food. Waiter modestly attentive. Would say that the men's room is not handicap accessible. Grandpa made it up the steep stairs but it was quite a work out.

Gastro-Pub sells this place short. Food is a notch above most, excellent dishes, always fresh ingredients, recently revised menu, not that anything at all was wrong with the existing one. Portions sized right and fairly priced. Highly recommend the stuffed meatballs on polenta. Staff and service always competent and pleasant. Good beer and cocktails. You should consider it a go to standard when you can't decide where to go.
