Entering the Saloon, a family owned restaurant since it opened in 1967 is a bit like stepping into Philadelphia's past. Dark oak paneling, shiny brass and authentic local antiques create a warm congenial and casual atmosphere. The choice of two comfortable dining rooms each with its own vintage bars make dining and conversation a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Both bars feature a delicious and moderately priced food menu. The menu is Italian with seafood specials such as grilled octopus and dover sole. Saloon steaks and veal chops are legendary. Many prefer a plate of fried long hot peppers to compliment the steaks. All desserts and gelatos are made on the premises daily. The Saloon is a Philadelphia neighborhood bar and restaurant with a national reputation. And the parking is FREE!

    We celebrated a birthday and no one really made a big deal. They put a candle in their desert and left The portions are small to medium and I don’t like when a filet is covered in a gravy. It is labeled as an Italian steakhouse and I don’t know if one that covers their meats

    The Saloon is our favorite Philadelphia restaurant. We dine there a few times a year. The service is always top notch. We were welcomed by an older gentleman tending bar who made us wonderful cocktails & had some nice conversation with. Our server Rachel was pleasant, attentive & well informed on the menu. A perfect meal start to finish!

    The Saloon has been around for more than 50 years because it delivers on the promise of what a fine restaurant should be. The decor is interesting, the service is fine and, most importantly, the food is great. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for. A perfect spot for any special event.

    Saloon never fails to impress me. Even with a basic gnocchi with Alfredo, I was blown away. The flavor is just insane. Went for my boyfriend’s birthday and he was very happy. Will forever be a go-to spot!

    I had the veal chop park special which was wonderful. My wife had the Dover sole special which came to the table cold by the time it was filet (there was a trainee) we asked for it to be warmed up and when it came back the fish was rubbery and not like typical sober sole. At over. $300 with a tip for 2 people, I’d expect better.

    As a former Philly resident visiting from California, Saloon is a must-visit on my list. My west coast kids didn’t even understand what South Philly is, and the outstanding food they have been missing out on. I only wish we had more time because I can eat their food every night. Wonderful people, wonderful place, wonderful time!
