Jerry's menu is anchored by thoughtfully re-imagined bistro classics lovingly prepared by hand. Our bar is impeccably stocked - craft beer, boutique wines, a formidable whiskey selection and exquisite spirits. We offer cocktails as classic as they are inventive.

Like the food and drink, Jerry's itself was rebuilt, brick by brick, by craftsmen with a profound respect for heritage. It incorporates a rich collection of architectural treasures, culled from historic buildings around Philadelphia. The result - old school elegance and refinement, where every brick, column, cobble stone, marble slab, door and fixture has a story to tell.

Jerry's Bar is new in an old way, to be savored and sipped slowly, rooted in simple pleasures that are as fresh as they are timeless.

there were remnants of food from guests who sat at the table before us (night before since it was sunday brunch) all in the cushions in the windowsill. this restaurant has always been one of my go to places, so the dirty / food at our table isn't enough of a reason to not come back, but it was a bit gross.

Other than finding a parking space, the food was great. It had an interesting spin on each dish. We enjoy brunch and I am looking forward to going back again because my husband barely shared the Biscuits and gravy.

Lovely bar with great food and drinks. I wish I live closer--would come there all the time. Food was absolutely out of this world delicious, and the service was good, too. Great ambiance. Highly recommended!

Jerry’s used to be our go-to years ago. Recently went back this weekend for brunch and the prices are much higher than I remember especially for the food quality. Our food came out cold, the waitress immediately got us new plates. But to be honest, not sure the heat made it much better. Got the short rib eggs benny “with avocado”. It’s pretty obvious they use guacamole instead. I would honestly ditch that altogether. Chicken sandwich was very good. Otherwise, not sure we’ll be back here for food. $10.25 a piece for a mimosa is pretty ridiculous too...expected more but a great ambience and great service - not worth the $$$.

Great food, and a nice location that never seems to get overcrowded. Don’t dare go here expecting basic pub fare, this place is far above that level. If you’ve never been here for dinner, it’s an absolute must-try. Nice staff, cool atmosphere....I hope this place stays open for the rest of my life 👍👍

The burgers were good but everything else just so-so. It was very expensive for low caliber pub food. The anniversary noted on the online reservation wasn’t acknowledged. This is the 2nd time that has happened. I don’t know why it is asked for when making a reservation. Won’t be back or maybe even use Open Table again

Great place for a casual dinner before a show at the Fillmore or Foundry. We sat outside and enjoyed happy hour wine, wonderful tuna spring rolls, salads and sandwiches. Show your server your Fillmore concert tickets and enjoy a discount. Very enjoyable. Will definitely return and recommend.

Except for the Chicken Sandwich (which was recommended by the waitress), the food was delicious.

If you eat seafood, start with the mussels - they might be the best I've ever had. The scallop and shrimp seafood special was cooked perfectly, too, and finished off with a quinoa salad that was to die for. Go for the food and drinks, stay for the ambiance.

The food, as usual was great! Service is consistently attentive and special. Because the walls are brick and the ceiling tin panels the ambient noise is a high when crowded. That’s my only slight issue but we highly recommend Jerry’s Bar.

Food was ok for brunch but the service was lacking. Our waitress was not very attentive and waited 10 minutes to be seated. It seemed like they were under-staffed

Jerry’s was a great choice for Father’s Day brunch: delicious sticky buns, spicy watermelon jalapeño mimosas, potato pancakes and smoked salmon with poached eggs, bacon wrapped shrimp & grits, among other things we liked. The service was excellent, the live jazz and big open windows and updated retro decor created a relaxing and fun ambiance. Looking forward to trying dinner next time!

We had a party of 6, with two children and one needed a high chair. We had an earlier reservation (6:45 on a weeknight) to accommodate the kids and their grumbling tummies and bedtimes. When we are finally seated with a high chair (we stood around waiting for the high chair for several minutes after the rest of the table was seated) it takes several minutes to finally see our server and get in a drink order (nothing too complicated, a Manhattan, a ginger beer and water). 10 minutes later we finally have enough water for the table (no other beverages came out) and order our food. The appetizer (zucchini fries) doesn’t come out for nearly a half hour and our drinks (other than water) never come. The waitress didn’t check on us and only walked by saying that our food would be out soon. We did not receive our meals (and never got our drinks, but they weren’t on the bill) for over an hour after being seated (7:45). The food was fine, but at that point we had hungry/grumpy kids and just wanted to be done with the meal. It was not busy, the service was just awful. I have been here before and had a pleasant experience, but I don’t expect to return.

I actually first found Jerry's on Yelp and noticed the "average" rating at that time, but I figured people can be picky/unfair and the menu looked great and very trendy, so I wanted to give it a go. For starters, there were not many tables occupied, and we were one of two tables occupied inside. Service from the bar was slow, and I noticed mostly beers getting poured, so I wasn't sure why. My watermelon margarita was terrible; I'm not sure the bartender was experienced, as for the first time in my life, I witnessed a bartender dip a straw into someone else's drink she was making to taste if it was ok!! The cheese board and duck spring rolls were mediocre (and I was looking forward to both), and the Jerry's burger, while cooked perfectly, was unmemorable. Plenty of other places to go in the area.

Upon arrival, there was no one at the host stand. I had a reservation and waited at the stand for about 5 minutes. During this time, the bartender, waiter, saw me waiting but did not acknowledge my presence. The host finally approached me and then told me to wait a little longer. So I sat at the bar and after a few more minutes, we were seated. We ordered drinks and my friend did not get a straw and she had to go to the bar herself to grab one. I ordered salmon and grits and that’s all I got on the plate. The salmon was cooked fine. But the grits were flavorless. It was a poor meal. My friend was also supposed to get a side salad with her meal which did not come at first. She finally got it after requesting for it. And it came without dressing. Overall, food was not good, service was not the best, and the ambience was dark and gloomy.
