La Peg is a contemporary brasserie by Peter Woolsey located inside the FringeArts building in old city Philadelphia across from the Race Street pier. The dining room is dramatic with 45 foot tall ceilings with large windows to match that give every diner incredible views of the Benjamin Franklin bridge. Designed by Groundswell Design, the industrial interior pays homage to the building’s history as a high pressure pump station for the Philadelphia fire department. The food is casual American inspired with options for the curious as well as the non-adventurous. The service is relaxed and casual yet informed and unobtrusive. Come in for a snack, dessert, drink, or blow out meal, La Peg will satisfy any occasion.

The drinks and apps were so good! It was great to have the option to go indoors. We did have to wait a little for our table because the party in front of us wasn’t done but I highly recommend! The watermelon lemonade was amazing!

Everything was wonderful, I would go again. We got several small plates which were perfect. One thing to note, the meat and cheese tray value was not good. One piece of cheese and one meat didn't seem to us worth what we paid.

We had ordered two of the same plate for the table and an additional plate of a different item. They charged us twice for both (instead of just twice for the one item we did order two of). I didn’t notice it until the next day.
And the drinks are very weak.

The food was amazing and the service and environment great. A little noise when the PATCO train was crossing the bridge as we were eating outside but really not big deal. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

They were doing construction by the bridge. Our server said they were told it was going to stop an hour before our reservation time. I didn’t stop. We were offered indoors but not dining indoors during Covid. View was great. Noise was soo annoying.

Every time I go they are always out of multiple dishes. On a Saturday night you would expect them to have the right things ordered to be prepared for customers

This is definitely somewhere you go for bar food. First thing the wait staff told us was that we had a set time limit to eat (believe it was 90 minutes) which is totally fine, but the service was incredibly slow. By the time we got our food we were already 75 minutes in. The steak was terrible... we asked for medium rare and got something well done. The waiter got the soup wrong and comped it. They also tried to comp us the steak but by that point we didn’t want to wait for it anymore and decided to leave.
The venue and ambience was cool but just wished the food and service was better.

They don’t currently have their standard dinner menu which was a bummer because they had that posted on opentable but when we arrived they just had burgers and apps. The burger was delicious but the crab cake burger was very standard. I love this place and the ambiance though. I think covid just made it hard to maintain the standard dinner menu.

Great atmosphere, I ordered the chicken schnitzel while my husband got the pasta. Food was good, not as outstanding as I was hoping for. Noise from the street can be a bit much even though we were inside. Service was a bit slow at first. I'd come back for drinks and a show. Dinner itself I think I'll go somewhere else first.

Outdoor seating under the bridge makes for a great view and good people watching. Our server was just the right mix of friendly and attentive ... joking with us without being overbearing while meeting all our service needs. We started with the beet salad (good) and mushroom toast (really good) followed by the seafood risotto (good) and the ribs (really good). We have eaten inside in the past and that also has a really good ambience and vibe. Great casual place to have fun and eat good food.

We went to LaPeg because of restaurant week, let me start there.
The menu was limited that was no problem because I expected that.
I ordered the pork belly appetizer, my husband ordered the arugula salad.
His salad was good, however my pork belly was very tough and nit very well seasoned. I question if it was even pork belly. It seemed more like a country pork chop.
We both ordered the 8oz. Strip Steak. There was a lot of discussion on how we wanted
it cooked, it was decided that medium would be the way to go. They both came way over cooked. So, it was disappointing. They were out of creme brulee so we ordered the flourless brownie and the lemon water ice. The brownie was good but the water ice was outstanding and they make it there. Very lemony, not too sweet and just the right amount of tart. I feel bad writing a somewhat bad review considering what has happened to the restaurant industry because of Covid but there definitely needs improvement. The waitstaff was very professional and so was management. I would recommend LaPeg because of ambience, it has a nice vibe. I think if you stick to more pub type of food it might be a better fit.

The drinks were good but the food was not that great. The steaks were bland and the sides were as well except for the mash potatoes. Wish the steaks had more flavor. The desserts were too much and were not made up to par.
