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.

I went for Mother’s day so it was a Sunday. They had a duo playing jazz, it was a nice vibe. The food was outstanding. I don’t know if the short ribs and eggs were a Mother’s Day special but it was out of this world! The pancakes and the French toast were bit too thick for me. If I would’ve eaten even half of one, I would not have had room for anything else. The loaded home fries were delicious also. We had a great experience. My 14 year loved everything as well. He wants to go back ASAP.

The food came out cold or warm. The mussels were bad. Not a good experience. Sorry.

We reserved a table outside. Even with outside dining it wasn’t super noisy. Our server was excellent and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. I had the impossible burger with the jalapeño jam. It paired so well with the burger, definitely a great option for a veggie based diet. My date had the crab pasta and that was also very good. The establishment was very clean and I feel like no matter if you’re sitting inside or outside you will be happy with your seats. Also loved how hospitable every single staff member who came up to the table was. Highly recommend and will be returning!

Food was very good. Enjoyed the halibut and crab meat. My husband had the coconut risotto but it didnt have much coconut flavor., but spicy if you like heat. We thoroughly enjoyed the hummus tray.

We were here mid-pandemic and the food was MUCH better than what we experienced during this recent visit. The burger's were overcooked even though different people in the party asked for it medium/medium-rare, my wife's dish was way to salty to the point of not being edible, and the raw seafood was not as cold as it should have been. The saving grace was that our server was apologetic the entire time and tried to move things in kitchen as much as she could. I don't think I will be coming back here anytime soon. It is too bad as I really had liked this place before but the food was just too subpar to give it another chance.

Service was terrible, the waiter was rude, unapologetic, and extremely slow. He got our order wrong, we told him it was wrong, and then he didn’t come back for over 40 min, when he did come back he didn’t even correct the order and seemed bothered that we asked about it again. Our table was also completely tilted to the point where our drinks were sliding off, the table was also dirty and had oil all over it.

The place is really cute. The ambiance is awesome and so is the service but food is of an average quality. This is just my opinion. The pancakes tasted undercooked and dry. Jerry’s eggs were okay. The home fries were good. I will still give it another try, but not ok special occasion.

The food is definitely worth it. My family went for brunch, and we were all very happy with our food. It was very tasty and the portions were a good size. The service is slow though. It took a decent bit to get greeted, receive waters, utensils, and our drinks, etc. The outdoor setup they have is good, a little crowded on the sidewalk but if you get in their construction then its nice. Overall I would recommend but going in just know that it might take a bit for things.

Jerry’s Bar is my new favorite restaurant in Northern Liberties. The food is absolutely amazing and the drinks are really affordable ($5 city wides???). I have been there twice, and Melissa was an amazing server the first time with great recommendations and quick service. Last night we had Anette and she was awesome as well, and was super friendly. Overall, whether it’s a night out to get drinks, or a special occasion, Jerry’s Bar has the range to provide a great experience each time.

Heard really good things about their brunch but the service was soooo slow. Bar was backed up and our first drinks took a while. And even after the place slowed down and there were only a few tables of people the service was so slow. They also ran out of some of the brunch specials by 1 pm so that was disappointing too.

Jerrys Bar is one of those neighborhood gems that you just can’t wait to get back to! The food is always fantastic, the help super friendly( and they’re happy to stop and chat when they can) and the ambiance is super relaxed and stylish. I love this place and would go every week if I could. Definitely put it in your list of awesome local spots to dine.

We liked the look of place. It was Northern Liberties Restaurant Week, so we looked at quite a few options. Outdoor seating was great, as was the friendly service. The food exceeded our expectations! Three of us chose from the Restaurant Week menu, one from the regular menu, and everything was sooo good.

Went on Sunday 4-11-21 reservation was on time. After being seated we had about a five minute wait for the waitress, she was very kind and polite. She took our drink order and offered us some bread and cake before the meal, the cake was very tasty. After about 20 minutes our food arrived hot and good. Only issues people walking past with dogs and pets come very close to customers.

I've been to Jerry's a million times but this is my first time back since the reopening and it was perfect.

Made a reservation with a request to sit inside and it was not honored. Ended up being seated 20 minutes late, outside. My boyfriend and I ended up ordering our food to go because it was too cold to eat outside. Our waitress was wonderful and super accommodating and the food was delicious, we were just disappointed that our reservation was not acknowledged.

Went for a special occasion with a table of 6. While many Philadelphia restaurants do not allow a table of 6, Jerry’s did. Upon arrival I was informed by party would have to be split with a glass wall diving us. I wish I had been informed of this prior because I would have made a reservation somewhere else.
