Casual Dinner in Philly Friday night
- thatgirl153 Aug 15, 2007 07:42 AM
First time in Philly...looking for good casual dining without the need for reservations. Brew pubs, burgers, crab cakes, fish and chips with a Philly flair. We will be staying at Loews Hotel which I think is near the Reading Terminal. We will probably be out and about looking at the historical sites and such. Any recs?
Nodding Head (great fish & chips and burgers)
Good Dog (great burgers and make a great cheesesteak egg roll)
Tir Na Nog & Public House are both not bad, but can get crowded during happy hour.
I like Jones (7th and Chestnut). Located sort of between your hotel and the Independence park sites. They have solid American food, the place is spacious and I've rarely had to wait too long for a table. There is outside sidewalk seating as well. The bar area is lively and the prices are good, though it can get loud. Service is efficient and friendly and they have fish&chips, burgers, crab cakes, and good fried chicken. The website is fun too: http://www.jones-restaurant.com/
