Physically Assaulted Here!

Do not go here, the way this place treats their patrons is a disgrace! I was there for a total of 5 minutes - I wasn't there long enough to order a single thing - before I was physically assaulted by a bouncer. He grabbed me at the top of a large stairwell, and roughed me up for a few minutes without my doing anything aggressive against him, and I was lucky to get out of there before being shoved down the entire st... view more

LOVE THE FOOD>>>>LOVE IT THERE!!!

I absolutely enjoyed myself. My fiance and I went here for Valentine's Day and we sat by the little fireplace. The food came in a timely manner and our waitress was just delightful. The prices at this place was unheard of, I mean you can get an appetizer, an entree and 2 or 3 drinks if you'd like for under $20..... I would strongly recommend McGillins to anyone interested in having a good ole time!

Love this place!

I go to McGillin's all the time. They have a great list of regional beers and a friendly atmosphere. There's always something giong on - a party, Eagles game to watch, karaoke. I usually order the tuna melt - but lots of times they have unbelievably low priced specials on pizza, tacos, wings and beer - cheap and they taste good too. I love this place.

Avoid on Football Sunday

Entire place smelled like urine on a Sunday afternoon after the eagles game. Even the smelly alley outside had a better aroma.

Not all that its hyped up to be

My friends and I went here for the first time on a Tuesday night because we heard great things about the place....there wasn't anything special about it. Our waitress wasn't friendly or helpful. It took way too long for our food to get to us. My friend ordered malibu bay breezes that tasted like juice. The $0.25 wings came with bleu cheese and celery that was an additional $1 (which we didn't know, they just gave it ... view more

Best Bar in Philly

This is my favorite bar in Center City. It's reasonably priced with great weekly food specials. Their Tuesday $.25 wing special is the best in the city. The crowd is always friendly and ranges from college students to older professionals all wanting to enjoy the $5 pitchers of Bud lite and PBR. The Karaoke regulars are worth watching!

If you're over 30... Leave after Happy Hour

I would ceratinly recommend this bar to a tourist because it is THE oldest tavern in Philadelphia but after you've enjoyed a serene happy hour drink, some cheap eats and chatted with a friendly bartender, I would advise that you seek out a more ""adult"" spot for an authentic philly vibe. By 8 p.m., this tavern is over run with college students swilling $5 pitchers of Miller Lite and So-Co and Lime shooters, while ... view more

Best place in the city for great food, good friends and great prices -- Anytime. Don't miss the best wings in the city! No Guinness, but I respect the owner for standing his ground!
