According to the City Tavern's Website, Chef Walter Staib's culinary philosphy based on tried and true traditions, not trends. City Tavern’s cuisine is made fresh daily from scratch with local ingredients. Just as the founding fathers dined on elegant, sophisticated cuisine at City Tavern, so will you.The tavern was built “for the convenience and credit of the city” by a group of eminent Philadelphians who felt that their hometown deserved a fine tavern which reflected its status as the largest, most cosmopolitan city in British North America. Rumor has it that it is haunted! They are famous for their holiday meals like Thanksgiving! Discover history and delicious food in their menu. 

A reconstructed Colonial tavern where servers in period dress deliver old-fashioned American fare.

The meal was delicious. Had the Medallions of Beef. Melt in your mouth tender. The Apple Fig dessert was exceptional. This place is a must if you are downtown and looking for a nice place to eat.

Colonial style dishes at their finest. Food was top notch and the staff and atmosphere made you feel like you were back in time. Everything I had was phenomenal, bit the Pepperpot Soup stood out.

What a cool experience. I was in town at a conference and they fit our entire group of 70 people in there upstairs dinning area. The West Indies Soup was fantastic. Only reason for a 4 star is because if you have a group this big They can only do cash for alcoholic drinks but food was amazing. They also talk about the history of the building which was awesome!

Really cool place! Walking distance from many other attractions around the Liberty Bell. Really good food, moderately priced. White tablecloth service and atmosphere were spot on! Lots of history in the building. They invite you to walk around to see other rooms. Only drawback is the restrooms are on the third floor.

Very nice place. It can get a bit loud, but the harp player is amazing! You will not leave hungry! :) If you like history and food, this place is for you. Walk ins and reservations both accepted. Casual or formal attire is fine.
