The Twisted Tail
The Twisted Tail is a bi-level restaurant, bar and live music venue featuring a charcoal-fired grill, a wealth of bourbon selections and the rollicking ambiance of a "juke joint" (or old school Southern music hall). The inventive menu highlights ingredients in their simplest form, flame-broiled over live coals for rich, authentic flavor.
Inside a warm, welcoming dining space makes The Twisted Tail South Street’s best place to catch a band - and a bite.

Everything was amazing! The ambience and vibe was immaculate. Live music was perfect during brunch! Food was delicious, great cocktails, and the service was incredible too! Will definitely be coming back
We met for brunch prior to a performance. Overall, the experience was just ok/mediocre. We waited too long for cream/sugar for tea/coffee, both drinks were tepid by the time it was ultimately delivered. I had an omelet that was so poorly cooked that it was positively runny and mostly inedible. The portion of ricotta for the whipped ricotta was negligible. I would have liked a second cup of tea, but our waiter was MIA for most of the meal. We had to ask another waiter to get our check. The funny thing is, as we were waiting to order, we kept saying how good the meals of guests around us appeared. One of us ordered the chicken and waffle and that was a favorable and tasty selection, so there was that……
I was there for brunch, and we sat outside. The good was amazing and the service, excellent. I will be back for sure.
We had a great experience! We were celebrating a birthday with a larger group. Our waiter was fantastic. Food was delicious.
My only challenge was the music was very loud which made it harder to converse with our friends.
Food was amazing. We had ribs and shrimp as an appetizer.
Dinner, I can't believe I'm saying this..... The fried chicken was better then my hanger steak. And my steak was perfect.
George the owner, Colleen the manager and their entire staff always make us feel welcome and special. This is one of our neighborhood go-tos as the food and service are always terrific!!
Wonderful place to eat dinner and have drinks. Outstanding bourbon menu and house cocktails.
Our party of four's 1st time at Twisted Tail and we dined outside and had a great time. I don't know how many "small plates" we ordered, probably 7 or 8, but we ate every last morsel of each and enjoyed them all. The service was well done by Josh and the others who assisted and we had a very enjoyable dinner. Would definitely be nicer without the motorcycles, dirt bikes and ATVs riding around the streets, but nothing the restaurant can do about that.
Was great to share food and good conversation.
Food was good and fresh - we liked our sandwich and omelette, and thought the service was good, and the prices were fair. I would definitely go back!
We really enjoyed our meal of the evening sampler. Each sample serving was more than expected and all very good. The BBQ ribs were excellent as were the beets in ricotta. Everything was delicious. The staff was friendly professional and on point.
We would highly recommend.
Amazing food - go with the chef's tasting menu for 7 courses at an extremely reasonable price. Great ambiance and service.
This may have been the best food I have eaten at a restaurant in a long time. Every course was exceptional. I wish I lived closer to Philadelphia.
Extremely good food, fantastic service! Not a thing to complain about would highly recommend this place for a fun dinner date in the city
Had a wonderful brunch, the food was amazing, and the service was great.
Food was good. Service was a little slow. The hostess at the front door, though, was insufferable and rude. You could tell she didn’t want to be there and it set the tone for the experience from start to finish.
The owner is very friendly he checks up you from time to time so see if you need anything and if your enjoying the food. The food there is amazingggggg soooo good and the prices are very friendly. We will for sure be returning!!!
I came here for my Birthday dinner, I ordered the roasted Salmon and it was excellent and a light meal. For desert the lemon tart was the right sweetness and the fruit on top was savory.
The food here is awesome. The service was great. I highly Recommend.
I have lived in the neighborhood for a long time and just "discovered" the Twisted Tail. They have the best happy hour in the city that I am aware of! Lots of very tasty offerings for very reasonable happy hour prices. Service was exceptional; friendly and timely.
I loved our meal and Ender was great. The entire staff
This place was fantastic! Live music on a Sunday night helped drive the Sunday Scaries away, and the entire staff was so nice and accommodating. Definitely going back.
Our waiter was nice. The service was great. The food on the other hand was lack luster. It was not seasoned.
We enjoyed our experience went there to be with friends and the music is always the best. There were a few misses in service. Well worth it to go back!
Out of fried chicken… only reason we went. Food came out in no particular order, we had sides for dinner before appetizers. Unfortunately staff was light and waiter was all over the place and could barely attend to us. Not his fault, but worth noting.
We had a an amazing experience. Great service great food great atmosphere.
First time here but not the last. We came for a quick bite before a movie and it was perfect. Fast and friendly and the cheese plate was amazing! So good, In fact, that we dove right in and didn’t even take a picture. We also had the fried chicken sandwich. Yum. Perfectly friend chicken breast, nice size, toasted bun, LT & pickle, couldn’t have asked for better. Happy hour menu was very varied and included good drink specials too. Our server was great in explaining everything but I didn’t really get his name because he was masked. The noise level was loud, not the music, the people, but we could still converse. Will definitely be back here. TYTT
Great food, fun ambiance. Noise was a bit loud for us and didn’t change when we mentioned it. Would definitely go again!
Fun place with interesting food and friendly service.
A little too loud for my taste. Music should provide ambiance but allow for casual conversation. It was hard to hear others at the table. Food was very good. Cheese plate was great. Crab cake was great! Mussels were pretty good, but a couple of them seemed undercooked.
The food was delicious. Our waitress Molly was great!
Amazing menu for food and drinks. Everything I tried was amazing.
The happy hour was great. Delicious wings. Great ambiance.
Our server, Steve, was great— super friendly.
Unfortunately, the restaurant was out of everything I tried ordering, at least 3 items (food and drinks). It was disappointing because the menu was small to begin with. We dined in at 6:00pm so right before the big dinner rush. I couldn’t imagine if we had came any later, we would of been s.o.l.
Fantastic dinner! The food was amazing. Drinks were fantastic. Ambience was perfect. I can't recommend this restaurant enough. You've got to check it out even if you've been before. It's got even better!
The entertainment was was awesome!
We love the twisted tail! Great food and cocktails.
Food was too sweet and overpriced. Service was good.
Great music, good food and delightful service.
Food was delicious, music fabulous, can't wait to go back!
