Gather ‘round the campfire! Our distinctive, open kitchen concept – surrounded by a line of intimate counter seats – will immerse you in an inviting experience of “front row dining.” You can even strike up a lively conversation with your server to learn more about our ample selection of Pennsylvania =craft brews.

What’s there to see?? In a nod to the long cooking traditions of Argentina and Spain, our kitchen crew prepares your meals and cooks them over a “live” wood fire and embers to create a refined, pure wood flavor.
Sure, you can sit at a table…or dine alfresco on our patio…but remember, a counter seat gives you a clear view to your very own cooking show! So, belly up!

Food was great. Our server was either very new or oblivious to what attentive service means. My wife was 2/3 through her drink and I had to ask twice about mine. Would go again for the food though.

Waiter was inattentive and a few times downright rude. He chastised my dining companion, a 78-year-old woman for using the napkin that he had put down to place her drink on, saying that if a waiter puts a napkin down to put a drink down she shouldn’t use it to for anything else.

So much staff turnover. That may not be so bad, except, there’s seemingly little/no training on server fundamentals.

We typically sit with Vanessa at the bar and she never disappoints when it comes to customer service. Always has a smile and kind word after a long day and/or week. Always on top of your order to ensure it is correct. Thanks Vanessa!

We really enjoyed our meal here and felt it was overall a wonderful experience! Our waiter was great - he has perfected the art of checking in on you but not feeling obtrusive at all. We had children in our party, and it was very much appreciated that he made the extra effort to make sure they had food and drink ASAP (we went on the last day of vacation, and they were pretty vacationed-out). He offered great advice for our dinner choices. The food was delicious and plentiful, and we enjoyed that you can watch the grill. The decor is very on trend. Can we repeat that we loved the service? We will definitely be going back.

I had the cheesesteak. It was tasty but my only complaint is that it was greasy and the grease pooled in the basket and soaked the bread.

Good menu and food. Large draft list. Other reviews complained that all the food didn't come put at the same time. This happened to us as well, sides came before appetizers, appetizers came with meals, meals came at different times, etc. However, it wasn't a big deal for us. We would 100% go back!

The food was outstanding. I had the special seared tuna burger (it’s a tuna steak, not a burger made from ground tuna). It was perfectly cooked and seasoned and served with avocado, citrus slaw and a spicy aioli on a brioche bun. Messy but delicious. The tap list is large and diverse. Service was fast and friendly. My only compliant was the searing sun. We sat along a window wall and even with the black blinds pulled down we roasted in the strong sun. In the future I would ask to sit elsewhere on a sunny day.

A great spot to meet with friends. We had an early Saturday supper to avoid the crowd and FSPH was kind enough to let us linger until things got busy. The gang enjoyed their meals, brews, and the attention of our server. Been to the FSPH 3 times and will be back (with friends).

The service, food and cocktails were very good. My only complaint is that it was about 90 degrees in there. I saw some guys who had sweaters over shirts taking sweaters off. I know it’s an open cooking concept, but it was uncomfortable in there. Aside from that, the crab cake sandwich and pierogies were amazing. We had friends with us trying the restaurant for the first time and they said definite go back!

I made a reservation for my fiance's birthday, putting in the reservation notes that we were coming for a birthday. When we got there the hostess was overly curt, the menu was not what I had expected- I should have looked at it online, so really my fault but still disappointing- and the tables and chairs were all wobbly. We didn't even wait for the server to come, we went elsewhere.
