I recently had my son's baptism luncheon at Anthony's Caterers at the IATSE Ballroom and had such an amazing experience. First off, this place is a hidden gem in South Philadelphia and the perfect place for an event. I will say that the venue was a bit nicer than I would have planned for a baptism and definitely more in line for an elegant wedding. However they had a wonderfully priced brunch menu that was equal to places half as nice. We had a brunch that included an omelet station and a buffet with french toast, bacon, sausage and potatoes, as well as, chicken piccata and penne a la vodka. I also added on a cheesesteak station as many of my guests were from out of town and would (and did) appreciate the "philly-experience". The food was great and the service was even better. We had young children at the event that were a little on the hyper side and the place was fine with me bringing in some games etc to keep them occupied and the staff even managed to continue smiling as my 3 year old son went around and blew out every candle that was lit in the place. We had an open bar for our guests in which we paid the final bill and the prices on that were reasonable as well (considering many places completely overcharge you for drinks etc). This place was wonderful and my husband and I will continue to tell everyone we know about what a great event they planned and delivered for us. I highly recommend you check them out for your next event.

Pretty cool concept this is! I work about 65 to 70 hours a week and needed to move to a larger apartment since I work out of my home a couple days a week and I was starting to drown in paperwork in my little one bedroom on Arch St. I have no time to search through a bunch of newspapers and 10 different web sites every day so after talking to Ed, one of their reps I signed up right over the phone. He gave me access to their web site and I had password to get in to my own personal site that showed me everything that matched what I was looking for. I looked every morning at 5 AM while I drank my coffee, some days there were a lot of new places to check out, some days not. I liked it because their website gives you all the information about the places so I didn’t even have to waste time calling some of them because they didn’t have exactly what I wanted. I found the perfect place in a little less than a month and finally moved in last week. I love all the room I have, a great city view and all the amenities I needed. This was a fantastic way for me to have a lot of options with no time to search. Will recommend them to my co-workers and friends. Samuel D.
comment share 03/14/11Skowronski Realestate and Staff are the best!!!! by Roxanne Gliwa at Citysearch My husband and I purchased our home through Skowronski's 20 yrs ago. Since then we purchased investment properties and insurance through their office. They collect rent for us with no issues with the tenants. Many of our tenants are long term so Iwould strongly say they are also satisfied with their estate and insurance service. Mr. Skowronski is well know in Port Richmond and I find it hard to believe the one comment I just read. I talk to so many people in this neighborhood and all's you have to say do u know Jimmy Skowronski and the answer is of course who doesn't!!!! Mr. Skowronski couldn't of been in business all these yrs if he wasn't doing something right.. His staff is super nice Margaret & Joanna I don't know how many times they went out of there way to answer my questions and help me as much as they could. Just this pass Friday they both stayed passed there working hours to help me resolve something.. I wouldn't deal with anyone else.. helpful (0) not helpful (0) comment share
