Well if I was you, I would not take that person's review serious at all. How can you rely on what somebody says that goes to a neighborhood bar and orders a drink that cost $12.50 a real airhead and obviously blind as a bat. There is no free pour at Sheba's, each drink even if you are ordering a Long Island Iced Tea, each bottle that tilts in your drink, you are charged. You need to get out more often. As for people looking for your music in a book, you cannot read either? I laugh at you, you think if you hand the KJ not DJ (as you referred to a KJ as, again who has a learning disability 5 slips, you are supposed to sing all of your songs you are seriously WRONG, you need to go to an OPEN MIC where you have allotments of time. You are right on one thing, the ladies room doors do need to be fixed. I am glad we live in a BIG city with plenty of things to do. You will not have to visit again. Besides when it gets BIG and it WILL you'll be back and your friend and I suppose your complaint then will be you and your friend had to stand. Go back to the karaoke you came from that looks for your songs in their one book, eat some food, lets you sing all of your songs together even if it is more than 3 and by the way if you have to splash in the bathroom, maybe you should try the men's room
No where else can you walk in and feel comfortable and at home immediately. The staff is friendly, smart and service is great. The food is always great and the bartenders are fast and friendly. The only downside might be it gets so busy sometimes there is a wait for a table (obviously it's got a great rep!). As I read these reviews i am laughing at the "genius" who went to Drexel who is complaining about the drink specials. New Deck isn't a sloppy college pub and the "owner" is a restaurant group who also owns SLAINTE PUB (means cheers in gaelic) at the corner of 30th and Market so this self proclaimed "insider" who claims the "owner" left this to some daughter doesn't have his facts straight. Poor guy .. maybe he's just bummed that New Deck remains a predominantly Penn grad school/HUP/Law school crowd and this guy just wants somewhere he can puke on a floor .. head to Cavanaughs buddy! And for anyone else reading this, head to New Deck and you'll understand what all of the excitement is about and why it's the most famous bar in University City, if not Philadelphia!!
Stumbled on this place looking for a place to eat before a Phillies game. While the service was just a hair slow for a not so busy Thursday night, it wasn't slow enough to complain about. I got the Wake and Bacon burger. If you're looking to speed up the possibility of a heart attack, this is your burger! A fried egg with bacon and cheese- very good. I like my burgers well done. They did it perfectly, giving it great flavor without ruining the meat or drying it out. My cousin got the turkey burger which he liked very much, and his step-father got the featured special chicken dinner which he liked a lot. Comfortable atmosphere for a pub-the bar and dining area are separated so it's not terribly noisy, and the prices were quite reasonable for a place in a high rent area. I also liked the fact that there's a SEPTA subway stop just outside the front door for the Broad St. line which we were able to hop right on to take it to the stadium! I look forward to going back.
