Old World Ambiance with Great Food
Provided by Citysearch
We made reservations for 6 (5 adults and one baby stroller w/ 10 month old) on the same day with no issues. They seem to have ample seating - 4 indoor floors and at least 2 outdoor levels - from what I could see. They did a great job restoring the original feel of 1700's living in Philadelphia. The weathered wooden floors, pewter water goblets (yes you drink out of them), and serving staff and characters from the time in traditional outfits. We were a little skeptical about the restaurant based on billboards and on line description specific to the ""costumes"". Thought it was going to be cliche or childish. Were we wrong! It was great fun. They were very accomodating with our 10 month old - child friendly. The service was great and the menu caters to all tastes. It does seem to be heavily German inspired with brats and krout. It's not fancy food and won't knock your taste buds out of your mouth but it is good food. The pale ale is great refreshment after a day of Philadelphia sightseeing.\r The food on the plate is more than enough to fill you up and if you have room afterwards; the desserts are amazing. Bottom line: great atmosphere for all ages at any point in the year with prompt, helpful service and delicious food. I do highly recommend going here at least once.
