Before the Phillies Game?

My daughter got a couple of tickets for us for Wednesday's game with the Braves. Any good pre-game meal suggestions. We'll be traveling from the Plymouth Meeting area to the game.

    1. I was the original one who inquiried on the post below. Go to South Philly Tap room 16th and Mifflin, about a mile from the stadium. It's such a great place, so welcoming, great menu. Have a great time at the game, I was there tonight!

        When my daughter and were heading to the game, I mentioned the SPTR to her. She hadn't heard of it. When I told her where it was, her reply was "NO WAY". She has clients in that area and does not like it, she thinks it's unsafe. So, we wound up eating at the ballpark.

          SPTR is in a perfectly safe area, particularly at 5-6pm. After dark it can get shady. With even a little bit of street smarts you'd have been fine.

          On the other hand, their menu is so hit or miss that you might have dodged a figurative bullet instead of an imaginary literal one. I've had wonderful meals and dreadful meals there. Great beer selection though.

            SPTR's chef changed recently (like 2 weeks ago), I haven't been there since the change though.
