I give it 5 stars on everything. It's a lively tap house, also a romantic spot. How's it both? It's due to a good policy; the downstairs w/bar is open seating (cheerfully noisy, a l'il loud for us). But the upstairs is for reservations, & (at least on a warm, muggy, Thurs. PM in June) most people ate outdoors on the deck; so we had the quiet, softly lit indoors almost to ourselves. We had a lovely anniversary dinner; food was delicious, & the portions left us comfortably full, just barely room for dessert. The sound track was mellow old-time jazz, which we liked too.

We live in West PHL, lots of great dining nearby. But now & then we trek across town for the historic vibes & current tastiness of the Standard Tap, too. Well worth it!

I guess I was expecting more since I saw it on the food network show. The menu was interesting and the beer selection was good. I would recommend it to those who are beer drinkers.

This is one of the best bars in all of Philadelphia. The food is eclectic an excellently prepared, service is friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. Draft list is all local craft (within like 90 miles). Go there, you won't be disappointed.

Went here for softshell crab. Both the sandwiches and the salad (which we saw but did not try) were awesome.

Huge portions and nicely presented.

This place is ahead of its time - the neighborhood is quickly becoming upscale.

loved dining here for "Dine Out for the Environment" night, and knowing all the delicious food was sourced from local and sustainable farms. http://www.dineoutfortheenvironment.org. service was a little slow. and the party next to us got a little too loud for me to hear my friends across the table. but we will definitely be back

My boyfriend and I were seated outside for dinner which was great. The porch was nice except the tables were extremely close together making it difficult to get up to even use the bathroom. Also, the only menu placed on the wall was behind me and was very difficult to see. Nothing had explanations and I had to ask the server many questions, which made it difficult to make a decision because I felt I didn't really know what I was getting. The beer was great and the list had many options. The food overall was not exceptional but it was fine. I had the grilled chicken and my boyfriend had the tuna sashimi. We would come back but probably just for drinks not dinner again.

From the bartender to the hostess (mandy) to the waitress, service was friendly and accomadating on a busy Friday night. The menu is so much more then pub grub which is great for mixed groups (some were healthy and some were not)...

Went here for a date, was really surprised at the great ambiance and food. We both had oysters, my boyfriend had the mussels, I had an asparagus sandwich, and everything was great. They also donate $2 to CHOP if you order a brownie sundae, which was a great excuse for us to go ahead and splurge (it was huge even being split between us). Draft list is great, highly recommended.
