Extremely poor service, the meat is good, but sauces are well below average. Plus they are too cheap to get occupied locks for the personal bathrooms which makes going to the bathroom unnecessarily difficult. And those bathrooms are desperately in need of cleaning. I do not recommend this place for a meal.

Now that I have been there, I know that I am not the targeted demographic for this restaurant. More pictures on the website might make it clearer, but not certain about that. Trademan's is actually more of a bar, even though the food was pretty good. My husband and I, 60-somethings, were the only people there over maybe 35-ish, most younger. The music was very loud, even at noon. The back was really cold, the front was all high-tops. I didn't feel overly clean, and someone was still cleaning bathrooms downstairs from what had obviously been a busy Friday night, again at noon on Saturday.
I personally would never go again, but honestly, I recommended it to my daughter.

I love to support local restaurants, and rarely offer a bad review. Unfortunately, that is not the case for our experience at Tradesman's Philadelphia. We were celebrating two birthdays, and we were a party of five. When we were seated at the table the first thing we noticed was that the top was broken off the base and wobbled , so we needed to be re-seated. Unfortunately, the food we ordered was inedible for four out of five of us. The taste of the meat was rancid and freezer burned, and the chips we got with our dip were stale. The crisped onions on top of the caramelized Brussels sprouts were also stale. Four of us ate a single bite of our meal, and could not eat any more of what was presented to us. We literally made reservations at another restaurant for the evening while sitting at the table waiting for the manager to come over. Kudos to the manager for removing the food from the bill. We also had no complaints about our server, but I feel for both her and the manager given the poor quality of the food they have to provide to customers.

We did not have a great experience. Service left much to be desired. We had to ask for water multiple times and could not get more than 1-2 cups at a time for a party of 8. Any special requests were treated as strong inconveniences and no effort was made to make the party feel welcome.

We were a bit disappointed. The food was just ok. Nothing really stood out. I think they were really short handed because the service was really slow. On the positive side, the outdoor dining set up is awesome.

We had a great time, we were kicked out of restaurant right when our time was up. Our waitress kept asking for our table when we hadn’t finished our bottomless mimosas yet. The food was very good it was just our waitress

A few friends did our first outside HH of the year Friday night and wanted a new outside dining experience as well. We booked Trademan's. Dinner was fine, we each had a beer, and mainly bar food, pork sandwiches, chicken fingers, etc. I asked for pepper for my fries, and got it. Only minor surprise was we asked about dessert, no dessert offerings. Not that any of us needed it, but not sure I've ever been to a restaurant that didn't at least have cheesecake or ice cream or something. Overall good experience.

The food, all items ordered except for one side dish were way, way too salty and the smoked flavor of the meats seemed/tasted artificial (e.g. sprayed with something) vs. the true flavor of the meat actually being smoked in an smoker. Pulled pork had too much fat too..........

After we were seated, no one came up to take our order for a good 20-25 min. After we finally placed our order, it took another 20-25 min to place another order for drinks. So in 50 min, we received 2 drinks.

The food was not very good her, we all ordered something different and none of us were impressed. But the atmosphere is nice. It seem like a nice spot to just link up and have drinks and party favors. Nothing more.

This was so fun! Love the atmosphere, food was AMAZING, and good covid set up. My boyfriend LOVED it here & that’s pretty a pretty challenging feat when we go out, so we will definitely go back again to check out the rest of the menu!
