Best roast beef sandwich in town! 5/8/2009

Another one of my favorites and endearing to my heart. At one time lived in the neighborhood and lived at Cherry Street Tavern. Good memories. This ""old school"" Philadelphia tavern has the best roast beef sandwich, add a bowl of chili for a bonus! The staff friendly and kind, always welcoming. Be back soon! Pros: Cozy corner bar with good old fashion bar eats Cons: Minimal parking more


After the saint patricks day parade a group of about 40 of us all ages included headed to the cherry street tavern, we were greeted with smiles from staff and customers alike.the selection of drinks, food and music were great, this place is like an old neighborhood bar where you feel comfortable,yet hip and fun enough to bring a date.the cherry street is very clean the food is excellent, the drinks are cold and the owners treat you like family, why would you go any place else? We won't . Thank you colleen. Pros: the whole package: service, food, drinks, location. more

The only thing I love more then Igor is DogFishHead. This place is da bomb. Igor is so cool even when she fights with the little fat guy. I like chicken and Joe Dirt. Pros: Igor more

Best bar in the city! 2/4/2007

We've been going to the Cherry Street for a while and just stopped in after seeing the King Tut exhibit at the Franklin Institute. The place is awesome! We love neighborhood bars and this one is the best in the city. They've got the best local beers on tap... Flying fish, Yards, Dogfish, Stoudts... and tons more. Since we were there last they put in a new tap system and a plasma TV in the back room! Pros: Great Atmosphere, Great Food, Great Beers! more

Best local bar around 7/25/2005

I've been drinking here for awhile and absolutely love this place. Eventhough I'm only 24, I know bars. The microbrews rock and the bartenders are freaking hilarious. Pros: Beer specials, Nice vibe, Historical landmark more

Perfect local hangout 1/17/2005

I moved to the area last year - and this is by far my favoriate local hangout. Most people know each other, and the staff seem to actually enjoy their jobs. The roast beef sandwichs are awesome after a few beers! Pros: roast beef, beer, people more

Loved It! 12/5/2003

We were surfing on the net before our trip to Philly and found this place on MSN City Guides. Since we stayed at the Embassy Suites, it was within walking distance of the hotel. I went there with my son for a quick dinner while my sisters were at a concert at the First Union Center. When they returned, I took them there also! Pros: Inexpensive, Easy Access, Great Atmosphere more

The BEST People 1/9/2003

This place has the best people working there. The service is fast and friendly, the beer is cold and inexpensive, and the food is awsome. They have the best hot pork sandwiches in Philly, and the homemade chili is to die for. You're missing out if you don't check this place out! Pros: good food, good service, hot chicks Cons: parking more

swell sandwiches 5/15/2002

They've got the best bar sandwich in the city: roast beef, big pickles, cold slaw on rye. Like a reuben but not as greasy. more
