Saloon - Jeffersonville - CLOSED

The Saloon in Jeffersonville has closed its doors again. Back in the mid-eighties it operated as the Saloon. Through the years it was reopened as The Moody Monkey and Ryan's, then "The Saloon" again a year or so back.

Food was good there and they ran some great specials during Phillies and Flyers games - also good entertainment - Chatter band, comedians..... Too bad....

Tough competition in the area with Chaps and Nippers nearby, Capone's, Steppy's, Vally Forge Beef and Ale and a few others a stone's throw away. Also rumored is another Chickie and Pete's at the old Pub 99 location just off Trooper road.

    I went to the Saloon once. Felt it was overpriced and not very friendly. Chap's across the street has always been the better deal. I agree with cwdonald that our new hospital (R.I.P. Woody's - as we always called it - Golf Center) may bring some new life to the area. More ethnic and less sports bars would be my preference.

      I too went to the "new" Saloon for lunch one day and was like one of 2 tables in that big place the entire time, and it was way overpriced. $12 for Mrs T's Perogies that the cook threw in the fryer, ummm, no.

            I think the area is heating up because they are building the new hospital up Germantown Pike. Probably will see more places try to push their way into this corridor.
