Ms. Tootsie's Restaurant Bar Lounge
If you're really hungry, I would not suggest going to Ms. Tootsie. First off the wait for 2 ppl was 50 mins on a Friday evening. Once we were told that our table was ready the hostess took forever to find us a table after just deciding to seat us right by the door. There was no place settings, no candles or condiments on the table whatsoever. The server took forever to take our drink order. We both ordered the iced tea which was so watered down that it wasn't funny. The waiter seemed preoccupied so it took another wait for her to take our orders. We ordered no appetizers and we're not given any corn muffins until like 40 mins after. Our order took about 55 mins to come from the time we were seated to time the food actually got there. The bbq wings were burnt and it looked like they just covered it with bbq sauce. The potato salad was bland and needed salt BAD. The pork ribs were good but we're like warm at best like it was sitting for a while. The Mac and cheese was awesome while the portion size of the sweet potatoes was very small. The chances of me returning to Ms. Tootsie is slim to none. Also the bathrooms could be alot better maintained. For the amount of business this place does the conditions and service should be far superior than what we experienced. Highly disappointed. The waiter was not tipped because frankly she did nothing to help the situation either.

Red Lobster
This Red Lobster restaurant is a getting a major overhaul with a new management team that is putting an end to some really bad practices. The servers, bartenders, hosts/hostesses are being given a complete revamp with a focus on better service, better attitude, and an end to caving in to the recent customer scams that are trying to take this restaurant under. The food is delicious and the service is good, but the clientele have spun out of the control with people insisting they received bad service in order to have their meals comped or so they will be given some freebie for even the slightest inconvenience. I sat next to a table where an elderly woman got up and began cursing like a sailer to a manager after being seated about three minutes who began screaming that every time she comes, she gets bad service - and she made a scene in front of the entire restaurant! I had to wonder why she continued to come? I have also witnessed a couple on my other side eat a meal they didn't order saying they didn't know they didn't order Lobster! Lobster (at $25.00 at least) that they didn't think they should pay for after eating it!!! Times are a changing here, however, because a new management team is weeding these types of customers out! And thank goodness for those of us who enjoy the food, the service, and will pay our bill!

Penrose Diner
OMG Breakfast is the absolute best time. The food, the wait staff, and the casual settings. It was always a popular local place to dine, but recently the word is out. Stadium events for sports, concerts, marathon runs in the area are drawing many new customers, It use to be just the same old customer faces, now I feel like I am vacationing somewhere new. The two nearby hotels, have found out too, as the quests stream across the street from the Skyview Hotel @Penrose Ave and the Holiday Inn @10TH and Packer Ave. Prices are good, the food is fresh & tasty, the smiles and friendly staff make it a place like no other, a place feeling to me and my family all the comforts of HOME {and no one has to clean up the dishes} Great Place. Don't Miss it, even former President Clinton stopped by on his way to PHL Airport and ate a fine meal, that only an all American Diner can make!!!!

The food was OK as far as the flavor of it, the best part about the food was that it was nice and hot. The wait for your food is extremely long u shouldn't have to wait 1hr for 2 or 3 platters. The platters were also a little pricey, If the ambiance and customers service matched the food I probably wouldn't had a issue with the price.The young ladies behind the counter are OK they lack customer service etiquette, especially when answering the phones. I hate to say this but they're kind of ghetto in the restaurant, but so is the owner. She (the owner) uses profanity entirely to much, especially in front of her customers and on her personal social media account which she advertises her business on. Had I seen that before I went to her restaurant I would not have went. Just because your in the heart of the hood doesn't mean you have to run your business as such.

Really not one person left a review? Well I am not the one to write a review for good service and or food,or yet even write a bad review from a bad experience. But I do feel the need to leave a review for this place. They go up and beyond great customer service,prices,selection It is listed here as a restaurant,which is only half true,they are an entire store as well. Great hours as well,super speedy delivery,and they will bring anything the store has if asked. Need cat food and just don't feel like moving,just want to orde some grub and watch tv,no problem they will bring it with your meal,cigs? Not a problem just have your ID ready. Not going to mention the menu,its very large and everything i have had was perfect if not damn near. No body is perfect, but This place is the closest you will ever see.

Pat's King of Steaks
The hackneyed term, tourist trap, definitely does not apply to Pat's. Pat's is the original and still the best. Pat's uses the finest possible cut of beef for the price, grills it to sizzling perfection, shoves it into a mouthwatering roll, and tops it with tasty cheeses. Yeah, the store is run down and the servers are rude, but this is South Philly, after all. Pat's prices are no higher than the competition's. That makes Pat's steaks a bargain because they taste far better yet cost about the same. The fries are merely average in flavor quality. Pat's fish cakes are surprisingly delicious and fresh tasting, especially considering that they are frozen. You might also like the spicy roast pork and the Chicago-style hot dogs. As expected in this hood, sodas are way overpriced.

Continental Midtown Restaurant
I so agree with the "Horrible Terrible Attitude towards Disabled People"! I just had lunch there with my father-in-law and his 89 year old mother-in-law. There was a 25 minute wait and she has trouble standing for that long, as you can imagine if you are 89 years old. The hostess told us we could sit at the bar while waiting. She sat down, and the bartender asked her to move since she was not going to eat at the bar and he wanted the space for his eating patrons. We offered to buy a drink (3 of us, 4 bar stools available, we are using 1 bar stool), but he said no, she had to stand unless she was eating. She has problems standing that long and almost passed out! He just didn't care. TERRIBLE HORRIBLE ATTITUDE TO DISABLED AND ELDERLY!!!!!

City Tap House
On, March 5th I sat at the Bar of City Tap and was served by all of the bartenders present. Yet, there was one who stood out. Eric, is his name. Eric, was very protective, considerate and aware of all that seemed to be transpiring on this Saturday night. With some things not being quite right, he made sure my friend and I were comfortable, and told us to give him the word if we felt like it was too much going on. We were pretty good at handling our own, but it was great to see that Eric took what he did to another level. It wasn't about just pouting drinks for patrons, but making sure they had an experience while dining at City Tap. He did this all with a smile and really added to our quick night out! Eric, YOU ROCK!!!

Cyber Crepe Cafe
*****Delicious food, wonderful service, and very nice people.Split a roasted veggie hoagie with an "eater", we were both satisfied and very happy. Warm baguette, grilled eggplant, roasted red pepper, red onion, grilled asparagus, zucchini, and spinach with hummus. My daughter had a Parisian Crepe, with pear, brie and lots of walnuts and a honey drizzle...huge crepe and delish. Husband had a Crepe omelette with scrambled eggs, mozzerella, and gouda...very nice size and he was a very happy camper. The rose lemonade and blood orange iced tea were also wonderful. We give the Cyber Crepe Cafe high praise and thumbs up. Also great to see a neighborhood spot that is wheelchair accessible and spotlessly clean. A++++++

This little restaurant opened recently with little fanfare. I went in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. They serve home style latino food such was yellow rice with beans, pork chops, empanadas, etc. For eight dollars, I got a huge heaping portion of yellow rice with beans which was the best I've had at a restaurant, a side of salad and stewed pork rib. It was more than enough for two people. The interior is simple but light and clean with plenty of room to eat in. The staff speaks mostly Spanish but you'd have very little trouble with English as well. They were incredibly friendly. I think it's cash only at this point. Definitely give it a try if you're in the neighborhood or nearby!

Just a moment...
