    Pat's King of Steaks

    34 reviews

    So good! I ate one of their cheese steaks in under 5 minutes. Pat's is known as one of the top two places for the delicious cheesesteaks (Gino's is the other).

    Reading Terminal Market

    Love this place. They have food for anyone. A great place to go if your not sure what you want to eat. You can walk around and sample different cuisines. The fresh oysters are amazing and a great price. Also at the Cajun place the gumbo is excellent. My husband and I go and get a smorgasbord of different things. ...

    Jim's Steaks

    23 reviews

    Pat's and Geno's are more highly publicized in part due to their rivalry and location across the street from each other. But if you ask me, for the best cheese steak in Philly you have to go to Jim's. I don't think I've ever seen Jim's without a line out the door. I order a "whiz with", that is with ...

    Geno's Steaks

    27 reviews

    Geno's or Pat's? That is the age-old question for visitors (and residents) to the City of Brotherly Love. When I visited the first time, I tried both cheesesteaks - and came to the conclusion that while Pat's was more tasty, Geno's was far friendlier in service. However, that was 6 years ago. On my last outing, in 2008, I preferred ...

    Di Bruno Brothers

    5 reviews

    If you want to have some fine cheese, sausage and olive, find Di Bruno Brothers. They have the best selection in the entire city. Also the staff will help you to find the perfect cheese for your needs. I always have a lot of fun whenever I visit Di Bruno Brothers. Some of the finest cheese I had were from ...

    This historic sailing boat is now a luxury restaurant and nightlife attraction. Begin the night with a three-course seafood menu, then transition to the Bongo Bar and Deck to dance on the Waterfront til close.

    City Tavern

    6 reviews

    I have been wanting to visit City Tavern for quite some time now. After a day at Independence National Park it seemed like a perfect opportunity to cap off a day full of American History at our founding father's favorite bar. Our group had an early reservation for 3:30pm which was perfect because we were starved after touring Old City. ...

    Front Street Diner

    2 reviews

    One of the best spinach pie I've ever had. Meatloaf was wonderful as well. I really liked the gravy. There's a lot of choices on the menu. Doesn't look like a typical diner, it's quite big. Nice place to stop for a meal.

    Monk's Cafe

    15 reviews

    Regardless of your dining preferences, this is a pub-styled establishment with really delicious options! Everything from salads to sandwiches and mussels are great. Once, there was frog legs on the menu and a friend and I wanted to be adventurous. I will stick to the sandwiches and salad. Their beer list is really unique and varied.

    Continental Restaurant & Martini Bar

    3 reviews

    A very fun, quirky atmosphere - we ate in hanging birdcage-like chairs when we visited. The food is eclectic but delicious.

    The Market at Liberty Place

    2 reviews

    Lots of local goods and great ice cream just a few blocks from the main square. Worth a pop in if in town.

    Eulogy Belgian Tavern

    6 reviews

    My favorite bar/pub/tavern in America. Plenty of good quality draft selection and bottle options. Try the Swedish meatballs for an appetizer. You'll be back.

    The Dandelion

    5 reviews

    The restaurant can be very packed or empty - I recommend reservations just to be on the safe side. The food is delicious - try the cheese platter for an appetizer. It is also a good brunch destination on the weekends. Their entrées and meat dishes are delicious and are at a very fair price. Also they offer a good ...

    Triumph Brewing Company - Philadelphia

    5 reviews

    Really good classic American bar food. The soft pretzels are to die for, and they've got an amazing selection of beers, including a lot of great, local breweries.

    John's Roast Pork

    3 reviews

    I can't even begin to tell you how hard it was for me to finally get to this place. The first time I visited Philadelphia I wanted to try this so bad, but unfortunately my high-maintenance travel partner wouldn't be so adventurous on public transportation. I dropped into Philadelphia a second time years later on the way to NYC with ...

    Talula's Garden

    3 reviews

    Great place for lunch and snack. At night dinner is offered at a prix fixe menu. The tailored cheese plates are to die for! The server behind the counter will ask you what your tastes are (or you can go for a surprise), and provide delicious condiments to accompany them. Ask for the $10 plate, if you are not that ...

    Oyster House

    2 reviews

    Best deal for oysters in the city. Buck a shuck during happy hour. Clam chowder is really good too. Love that they have the oyster crackers on the table in a large bowl along with cocktail sauce and horseradish. You must sit in the bar for dollar oysters and get there early as it's always packed. If your a oyster ...

    Chickie's & Pete's

    2 reviews

    This place is always alive and booming - and after nearby matches and concerts, it's the most happening place in town (and celebs like it too.) Great atmosphere, fun crowds (definitely reserve a table in advance if you have a party), and fantastic food. Throw cholesterol to the wind and chow down on their signature crab fries (sinfully, greasily delicious), ...

    Amis Restaurant‎

    My First dinner in Philadelphia was awesome. I was watching Unique Eats on the Food channel and they did a feature on Amis. I was going to Philadelphia in two weeks so I bookmarked it. Wow, good thing I did. The food here is awesome. We got there at 7 pm without reservation, they were packed, but I mentioned we ...

    Good local bar, beers with stars (plenty) are $4 4pm-630pm and 10pm-midnight on all weekdays. I live in the neighborhood and this is my favorite bar.
