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.

Went to Jerry’s Bar for the first time for Fathers Day Brunch! It was a beautiful building as we walked up but we chose to sit outside, which was equally aesthetic with flowers and all. I do not remember our servers name, he seemed a little flushed in the heat but he provided everything we needed and took our orders promptly. The burrata small plate was delicious and the portions of every dish we got were exactly what we expected for the prices. I would definitely recommend this place and I will be back to try more dishes from here! Good job Jerry’s Bar!

I usually don't leave reviews but this experience was so disappointing.

This is not my first time at Jerry's so I'm really shocked at the service and food this time around. We had reservations went to the front got checked-in and seated pretty quickly. Our server came over with luke-warm water (on a warmer day), which was fine because we just requested ice, which never came. Then we put in orders for drinks. They had a great selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. I requested the lavender lemonade (NA) and my Fiancée got an old fashion. It took about 20 minutes to get our drinks. My drink came out and tasted like lemon water no lavender no sweetener and my fiancée stated his drink was watered. I sent that drink back and requested a virgin mojito which was ok, but would suffice. During our wait for drinks we put in a food order. The waiter seemed in a rush and didn't write down the order, but we repeated back and she stated that she had the order. I got the banana foster french toast two eggs any style and my fiancée got the breakfast burger with oysters as a starter. Everything came out at once and was mostly wrong. First, instead of putting in two eggs any style meal the waiter entered it as a side of eggs and bacon. I ordered regular bacon she has turkey bacon come out. My Fiancée's burger and oysters came out at the same time which meant his burger was cold and they put the bare minimum fries on the plate. I ate the french toast which was good and sent the other items back. They removed my items off the bill, but I would much rather gotten my correct order and paid for my food. I was very disappointed in the service and food especially compared to what I'm used to at this restaurant. New bartender is needed and waiters need to slow down even if it is busy to at least take the order down properly.

First, it's important to note : our service was excellent. Our server knocked it out of the park - I'm grateful for her! I have been wanting to go to Jerry's for a long time, and the food was a let down. The short rib had no flavor. The Crab Pomodoro was watered down. I left hungry, and underwhelmed, especially considering the bull was 170.00. That being said - the Laurel St. Sour was delightful (I just wish the food was better)

While the staff were very nice, the service was deplorable. My party sat for 20 minutes before I ended up asking for a member of the wait staff to come greet us and take our drink order. It took about 30 minutes for the food to arrive and, despite my order being wrong, I opted to just eat what I was given because the poor waiter was doing the best he could and I didn’t want to make matters worse (or wait longer for a corrected order). Based on today’s experience, I would wager that this restaurant is being horribly mismanaged. It’s too bad, too, because it’s a great spot. We won’t be back, though, based on our overall mediocre experience. There are too many other good places to eat - we’ll give them our patronage, thank you.

The food was amazing how ever my friend and I ordered drinks and our server took about 20 minutes to get the first round to our table. She constantly forgot about us and we ended being there for a total of 2 hrs just because of her forgetting to check in with us.

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.

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!
