Westy's is getting a face lift ! 2/28/2011

Yes, my prayers have been answered. LOL, Ok so I am getting a little carried away however I stopped into Westy's (After boycotting the place because they were always out of food, beer and alcohol, I know, tough to run a bar with out those items. LOL) and a new group has taken over the bar and it appears to be getting a face lift ! The Bar was fully stocked, tap lines cleaned and looks like they had brought back in Yards, Sierra Nevada, Guiness, Blue Moon, Flying Fish and many more. Westy's has always had a great location and it should be interesting to watch what they new group does with the place, based on what I saw the the other day they are headed in the right direction. more

I'll never go again 5/26/2009

Me and a few friends were there and one of my buddy's politely told the owner that the beer he ordered didn't taste right and he thought they may have tapped the wrong beer to the line. The owner very rudely mocked my buddy for pretending to be a beer connoisseur. I tried the beer myself and my buddy was right, his lager tasted like some sort of pumpkin beer. No big deal except the guy acted like a buffoonish ingrate . I'd give it a -5 stars if I could. I'll never go there again. Pros: None Cons: The owner more

Totally redone and now second to none 4/29/2009

i have been coming to westy's for the past 3 years(and it was a mess) and have to say that the new ownership that just took over less than 30 days ago have done an amazing job of making this now the best corner bar in phila hands down - HUGE with 2 pool tables darts, new tv's, bathrooms, live entertainment 4 nights a week, giveaways loud music, 20 beers on tap, new stools ceilings - AND THE BEST KARAOKE PLACE IN PHILA-the singers are incredible . Never any trouble and always open till 2 Pros: 7 HI DEF PLASMAS-20 BEERS ON TAP- BEST CORNER BAR IN PHILA N Cons: NOT OPEN 24HRS. more

Good place, not bad at all 4/16/2009

This place is right near me. My friends and I found ourselves going more often there than elsewhere. They have Yuengling which is the beer/lager of choice for us. prices are ok. karaoke night is fun, even if you dont sing. you can take it as unofficial american idol judging. Overall, its a fun place to just hang out with friends without having to feel as if you have 2 inches of personal space in a bar. Pros: great local place, avoid crazy crowds, reasonable prices Cons: can get a little busy, nothing else unless you complain more

What a Great Place 3/31/2009

I feel that Westy's is a great place to go to eat, enjoy a drink, talk with friends, especially after a rough day at work. I feel great that i work down the street from Westys and i can walk there after a rough or fun/exciting day. I have read the earlier review and i feel very opposite to the feelings of this person. I would question whether this person has an agenda against this restaurant. I feel that every person should check this place out for themselves, i frequent Westy's alot and i understand that they are under new ownership. If you want to have some great food, service, and atmosphere, please do not take my word for it but head down after work for yourself and YOU decide what you Believe of this bar/restaurant. Thank You!!! Pros: Great atmosphere, great people, great service Cons: crowed on occasion more

WESTEY'S IS THE WORSE BAR IN PHILADELPHIA!!! 3/25/2009

The service is AWFUL!! Some of the bartenders have no experience, they were only hired because of family related reasons. The food taste disgusting! The drink prices are ridiculous, they are sooo expensive!! Would I recommend this bar to anyone? NO, I WOULD NOT!!! Don't waste your time. The new owners are unprofessional and don't know what they are doing! I don't even want to rate this bar, but I have too. I give it a 0. WESTEY'S is HORRIBLE! Pros: There is NOTHING good about this bar Cons: HORRIBLE SERVICE AND BARTENDERS! more

Finally Found a Place for Saturday Night Karaoke! 8/23/2008

So, I had out of town guests this weekend and have had a very difficult time finding a place to do Karaoke. Thanks to City Search I came across Westy's. We got there about 11 and as the night went on it got more and more crowded and hopping. The beer was great and the crowd was both eclectic and diverse. It made for a great night with lots of good stories. Pros: Karaoke Thursday and Saturday Nights, Local Corner Bar, Most smokers go outside Cons: At 11 the crowd was still warming up. Between 1 and 3 it was really hopping. more

Westy's is the Besty's! 1/16/2006

Simply put, I LOVE Westy's!!!! The Karoake cop rocks the house. Look out for the Aspen Street Girls, they are so hot and they will rock your world! Pros: Karaoke, Cheap beer, Fun Cons: hangovers more

Game Day 5/7/2003

After several weeks of searching for a good sports bar I found it was under my nose. Living in the loft district you kind of get used to going to other neighborhoods for things but I was mistaken for this. they have a big screen TV and a good atmosphere. the clientele is surprisingly diverse. Best of all, sunday is $2 pints for everything including yards and boddington's. Good corner bar and sports bar. Service varies gratly depending on who's behind the bar. Good wings but stay away from entrees. Still the best sports bar I've been to except maybe ONeals. more

Editorial

  • In Short
    This corner bar instantly puts visitors at ease with its simple, familiar decor; mirrors and signs bearing the logos of beer and whiskey companies mingle with Irish ephemera. Make your way through the row of cramped tables and booths towards the back for a game of pool or darts, or sidle up to the bar and order a pint pulled from one of Westy's 20-plus polished brass taps.
