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.

Jazz brunch: the music was wonderful - we were able to hold conversations without raising our voices. I had Shrimp Lejon whiz was cooked perfectly and a large serving. Our server was kind, funny, and right there when we wanted her.
All in all - a fabulous experience!

We were in town for a concert and decided on James’s bar because of their menu. Our experience was perfect thanks to our server Sarah. She was bubbly, attentive and coursed our food in a timely manner. The food we enjoyed the most was the pierogis, the black bass & the panna cotta. Definitely would recommend!

Good food, but the service was ridiculously slow, especially for a small-ish place. Our server was very friendly, and appetizers came out in a normal amount of time. Our mains, though, were about an hour and a half later - it was just an absurd amount of time for some sandwiches and salads.

This is my 5th time here and place is what it designed to be-good unpretentious better than pub food . Brunch is consistent eggs Jerry my favorite along with nice selection of Drinks. It is what it sets out to be
Not a dive not upscale but good every day food I love with consistent quality and great customer service

Excellent food and service and a great place to spend time. My only complaint is that it can get so loud that you have to shout a bit to talk--but as long as you're up for that vibe it's a great choice.

Cute place. Been here to brunch a few times. The pork roll egg and cheese sandwich is delish.
Service has been exceptional and I'm in the service industry. Waitresses have been attentive, friendly and on top of it all. Sunday we stopped in and there was a 2 piece jazz band. Just added to the awesome atmosphere.

Better than average food at an inadequately staffed restaurant. Servers are friendly, but there aren't enough of them and they don't have stations, which means they end up running all over the restaurant trying to cover their tables. We waited close to ten minutes after being seated before anyone came to take our drink order. I walked over to the bartender to ask if we were supposed to place our orders with him. The food was good and the ambiance was nice. I had the Poconos trout small plate and a side salad, and I would have both again. The small plate was fairly generous for small plates: a nice trout filet with a side of asparagus and beets, which made me wonder if they ran out of asparagus (only asparagus was listed on the menu), and a side caesar salad. My mom had the prime rib special, which was definitely a heaping plate of prime rib and (real and delicious) mashed potatoes. If they manage to correct the staffing situation, I would definitely return.

Four of us went for Sunday brunch. The place was packed and beyond the capacity of the kitchen to handle. One of our party never got her order. Telling waitress and one other person did no good. Another one of our party did not get what she ordered and decided that bringing up the issue would not get resolved based on non-response to the missing meal. Waitress told us they were making the missing breakfast as the rest of us were finished. As we were paying the bill we were offered the missing meal that wasn't provided - a little late for that. Coffee was lukewarm and weak. Focus of the service was more on turning over the tables than the service itself. Disappointed. This is what I call two visits in one - the first and the last.

Good food. Went before a gig at the Fillmore. I can only guess they were unaware of the show because they seemed understaffed. Waitress was quite pleasant, but we waited for some time for our food. I plan to return to Jerry's every time I attend a show at the Fillmore; I just hope they are aware and are staffed accordingly.

Food was good,atmosphere was good service was terrible.Sarah was obviously overwhelmed and did not want to be there. She rang our credit card for someone else bill. When I questioned her about it, I was told you don't know who I am I'm a grad student, I'm not subhuman I make mistakes.

Pros: The food, service and restaurant were great. My party and I had the bruschetta omelette, salmon and grits and shrimp lejon and we all loved our meals. We easily secured a reservation and the waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We will eat there again.

Con: The only con is parking. We live in northwest Phila and had never heard of Jerry’s. We learned of it by doing a search for available reservations while we were out driving. It was easily 10-15 minutes before we found a place to park. Unlike Center City, there are no public parking garages in this section of Phila - at least none that we saw. So, if you have reservations, factor parking into your time or better yet, take a Lyft or the train.

Possibly one of the worst breakfasts ever. Veggie omelet (roasted portobello, sautéed leeks, spinach, and gruyere) was very disappointing. Barely any leeks, a glob of barely melted cheese, nearly raw spinach leaves, and large, oddly seasoned chunks of mushroom. The egg was dry and overcooked. The side salad was swimming in an overly sweet dressing. Hash browns were soggy and over seasoned. Bacon was the cheapest cut possible but the best part of the meal. The bloody Mary’s were good, although the celery was grungy looking at the top of the stalk. Cute atmosphere in the back room. Horrendously tacky art.

Really great food and service at Jerry’s bar. There was live music and we sat in a side room where it wasn’t too loud and you could still hear it. I really liked the vibe and design of the whole place. I will definitely be back and recommend to friends.
