About Jerry's Bar

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.

Excellent place reviews were correct on the website. This was my second time. When I made the reservation I did not know it was the same place I eat at two years ago and the food was still great.

Service and ambiance were excellent! But the food wasn't anything amazing. Everything seemed to be overdone and not very flavorful. Sangria was kind of watered down.

The food and the ambiance were outstanding. The only slight negative was that our food took over an hour to come out. Other than that, great experience. Would definitely recommend.

we've been to Jerry's before and enjoyed it, so we brought some business clients.
our appetizers were great.
BUT, my husband ordered a burger, and he couldn't eat it. I tasted it, it tasted like the meat had gone bad. We didn't want to make a fuss in front of the clients, so we said nothing.
also I had the beet salad- not impressed at all. not many beets at all.

Make sure to confirm your menu selection with your server! I ordered an entree off of my menu but only stated the protein, "salmon." When our meals arrived, they brought a salmon dish out but it wasn't what I ordered. It turns out, we had been given old menus with discontinued entrees listed. So the salmon dish I had ordered (which featured salmon and crab meat over risotto) had been replaced with a seafood broth dish. It was okay... just not something I would have selected if I had the correct menu.

My friend and I dined here on a Tuesday evening for the first time. We had an incredible time and cannot wait to return. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about their food, drinks and upcoming events. The space is absolutely beautiful with an organic flow. I love that the tables are not close together, high ceilings and lots of light. The music that was played set an incredible vibe. We tried a few things on the menu, from raw oysters to the chef's bites and pierogies. All were DELISH!! The signature cocktails were stellar. Our goal is to try everything on the menu!! I am so excited to come back for brunch on a cold Sunday and warm up with a signature cocktail, and live music. If you have not been to Jerry's Bar, please add it to your list. You will not be disappointed!!!

The drinks were great! Hubby had an espresso Stout, I had Last Bombilla. The tuna appetizer was much bigger than we expected. It tasted good, but the fish should have been sliced thinner. I had a broccoli Reuben. It was just ok. He had a burger but they didn't bring it exactly the way he asked for it. He just didn't want cheese, but they left off the onions too. Oops. But our waitress was fantastic!

We love Jerry's. It's our " corner bar" with a twist. It's a little bit more upscale than a corner bar, but that doesn't mean fancy by any means, just pretty and with live music on the weekends. There are also parties in the side room on the weekends with cool lighting which bring all types of people, but always fun to look at. ( i.e.: bridal shower, art opening, engagement parties) We love the " dog days' of summer where we bring out pooch for 10% off. There are often dogs outside with their owners and everyone there is friendly to both us and our pooch. It's a neighborhood " gem". The humus plate is perfect for sharing and their happy hour is great for after work drinks, or a casual date night. Their burger is great and drinks are always goo, what more could you ask for ?

Jerry's Bar was lovely! We were seated on the non-bar side, so it wasn't loud at all. The menu was a little intimidating, but everything tasted fab. Great draft menu too! Our waitress was very attentive and the ambiance was nice. We also got a discount on our meal, since we were going to the Fillmore afterwards!

It was a special occasion, indeed. Both daughter and son in town - long time no see. Introductions to two new fiancee's. The six of us had the best waitress this side of the Delaware, the food was great, and the wine was superb. We had a great evening of hugs and laughter. JB is absolutely on our keeper list.

We went for breakfast on a Saturday.
They delivered two meals to our table of four. We then had to wait about 5 minutes for the other two, then another few minutes for the sausage. Felt like we weren't a priority. No real interaction with our waitress.

Jerry's always is good, but this day for brunch they were especially good - food was uniformly excellent, service on-point from beginning to end. They recently put a roof on their outdoor seating area, which is great too - still has the outdoor feel, but now is climate controlled. A great experience at a great place!

We were a party of 9 and the staff was very pleasant and patient with us (we did not all arrive on time). However our food order got a little confused. My medium rare burger was well done, no pink inside at all. I have been to Jerry's on several other occasions without complaint, I will chalk this not as great of an experience up to the fact that we were a large party.

My girlfriend and I went to Jerry's Bar for date night. We wanted to try something new and boy are we glad we went here! Not only was it close to our home, the ambiance was awesome, service was great, and the food and drinks were incredible for a great price! People had said that this place was pricey but I do not think that is true. We spent the same amount we would have anywhere else. I had the lamb chops which were fabulous. We shared perogies which were different than anyone else's we have tried but still was amazing! My girlfriend got the wings which she enjoyed and we shared fries which rocked as well! What I loved the most was that the server didn't rush us at all. He asked my girlfriend if she wanted another beer after we were finished eating so we thought " sure why not?" Love this place and will now be visiting much much more! Highly recommended!

This was my first time. Supposedly, the place is SRO for brunch on weekends. We were there for dinner. The food and drinks were fine--nothing extraordinary. It wasn't crowded. But when it came time to pay, our server was no where to be found. There are too, too many other places nearby, some sure bets, to encourage a return.

Needed a meal with friends prior to a show at the Fillmore. We were pleased with the ambiance, a more upscale bar. Bartender was friendly and VERY helpful. Good selection of single malt scotch for a local bar. Three of us chose the pork special and 1 salmon order. All the food was tasty, particularly the fries which we rarely eat. Unfortunately management choose to understaff and our waitress did as good a job as possible keeping up with things. That and the noise level were distracting from our experience. I found it increasingly hard to hear our friends across the table as the room filled up. While I would recommend Jerry's to someone, I would suggest they choose a different room than the one behind the bar and hope that management just made a one-time mistake scheduling wait staff.
