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.

    First time here to this restaurant it was really beautiful and the food was good! The salmon could have been alittle more flavorful but overall I would give it a 9/10 definitely coming back!

    The buffalo cauliflower and table snacks were good, loved the jam, sausage, and cheese. However, the crab dip and it was forgettable, the burger reminded me of a Burger King Whopper, salmon was slimy, fries were too salty, cookies weren't warm. Service was a bit slow—but it was during restaurant week and a bit busy. Overall, the food was just okay, but the drinks (Blueberry the Hatchet was DELICIOUS!) and ambiance (indoor and outdoor—dining outside under the bridge at sunset was fabulous) were great for the Restaurant Week value ($40 + drinks).

    This was our second time at La Peg. We have had two great experiences at this restaurant. When you first walk up, you may think it's a bar atmosphere with the casual outside seating and bar inside. But, the food is anything but bar food. This visit they had a special menu and everything we ordered was excellent. The staff is friendly and attentive and appear to enjoy their jobs. Also, both times we visited the weather was perfect...sunny and not too hot. The views of the bridge are great too. It sits on the corner of Race and Columbus Ave, which can be noisy but nothing different than most city restaurants with outside seating.

    There were open seats available on my birthday for 9:45. We arrived at 9:30 to only be turned away. If the restaurant is closed, why would I be able to make a reservation? Or worse why would an establishment allow us to book, walk over and not at least serve us drinks.

    We went for lunch on a Saturday in August. The food was very good but the portion size was a bit small. They only offered outdoor seating. The staff was excellent. We will return for dinner for sure but maybe not lunch.

    Service is great. Lots of outside seating. The ambiance is no where to be found, surrounded by two highways and a bridge...you'll have to scream to be heard between the cars, trucks and motorcycles racing along the Delaware River.

    The waiters were very respectful. Environment was clean, outside and inside seating design is very appealing. However, the lighting inside the restaurant is too dark..table candles etc were unavailable. Outside seating is better for the visually impaired. The food and menu was to be desired. We started with a cold plate appetizer and for 6 crackers to eat with a small scoop of liver patte, cheddar cheese and smoked sliced ham with a large helping of jam??? What to eat the j with if you only have five to six crackers? Then the sandwiches and hamburgers were nothing to write home about. The whole entire experience has led me to believe it's just a over the top diner/neighborhood burger joint. The menu is dolled up to make the choices seem more than it really is. That's my honest opinion.

    The food and drink were great, but the service is absolutely terrible. The server didn’t introduce himself, so I have his name from the receipt (Brando). He didn’t check on our food until after we were done eating, he didn’t bring out waters nor take the drink order (the manager did), and he didn’t run our food (the food runner did). He took our order (two burgers) but didn’t ask for their temperature- he just ran away. The only task he accomplished was bringing our check. Too bad, cause the food and ambiance are both good.

    Fun atmosphere and the food and drinks were interesting. Server could have been friendlier and more knowledgeable about the menu. Other server pitched in to answer our questions though. Hostess staff rather aloof, seemingly because we are not hipsters. However, I would go there again - it's a nice change from Old City when we go to the theatre.

    We decided to eat at LA Peg for the evening because of proximity to the hotel. When arrived, we were greeted and seated promptly. Our server was very friendly and prompt. She allowed us to enjoy our meal and conversation with minimal check in, which is very welcomed with Europeans. Our meal was very good, the blackened salmon was delicious, as wad the vegetarian burger that my wife loved.

    La Peg is a delightful place to eat. Formerly a municipal pump room, it has a rough, industrial character, but the food is good. We enjoyed the beet and arugula salad, a hamburger for me and "The Bird" for my wife. Our server, Emmanuel, was personable and attentive. La Peg gets extra points for not only serving non-alcoholic beer, but also an Atlantic Brewing NA beer.

    This place used to be amazing. We paid for a sitter and left disappointed. If we are going to spend the money to go out the food has to be good. The manager and hostess manager couldn’t have been nicer for the errors made on our food but it wasn’t a great experience overall. Hopefully they will get it together with the new staff post-pandemic because the views are amazing. If you are not a city person the motorcycles will probably ruin the outdoor seating for you, but it is normal for us!

    Horrible service. Being that it was a nice night in the city we tried to just be patient and go with the flow. But we only saw our waiter once, when he took our order. The food runners brought us our food…which wasn’t what we ordered, and we saw the waiter pass us multiple times and never bothered to ask if we needed anything or how everything was. Finally I flagged him down for the check. We would have ordered another round or two of drinks while we sat there had we been tended to. The food was good though. We love Philly. I probably won’t be back though. Sorry Brandon but you need to step your game up!

    This place is special. We dined there on mothers day and were greeted with a huge smile by Liz, the GM. She is as friendly and helpful as it gets. She helped us plan and execute our wedding last August. We then saw another familiar face, Henry who we had sat with at the bar a few times who helped us and made us laugh for hours. Our server Anthony was one of the best we have ever had at any restaurant as he and Liz explained all the new items on the menu and helped us make our very tough decisions as to what to try on this first visit this spring. We had the French onion dip and the cheese curds for appetizers. Both being gluten free, if I am not mistaken, but you would NEVER know. The marinara served with the cheese curds is amazing they were was fresh and crispy with a bit of basil flavor added. The dip was actually refreshing and not too heavy with scallions on top and house made chips. Then for entrees we had the chicken fried steak which was delicious and I had "the bird" which was their fried chicken sandwich, as recommended to my by Liz. The sandwich, though fried, was actually light and clean. Sometimes friend chicken sandwiches can get greasy and be heavy- this was quite the opposite. The house mayo and pickles really made the sandwich as well. For drinks, I love the pinapple and sweetness of The Pharmacist, bourbon, honey, and pineapple. My wife had one of the new espresso martines which was on TAP. This was smooth and creamy. I actually woke up the next day wanting to go back for one. This place is amazing and its not even warm enough for them to get the Beirgarten outside going. I cannot wait to go back for live music and to see these wonderful and friendly people who have never once disappointed. We are so glad we got around to writing a review as tribute to the food, ambience and especially service that we always receive there. Before dinner was done we began making plans to go back with friends of ours in a week or so!
