City Tavern

Once called "the most genteel tavern in America" by John Adams and the first unofficial "White House," Chef Walter Staib's City Tavern has boasted the finest celebrations since 1773. With over 230 years of hospitality, City Tavern has been the centerpiece of affairs now immortalized in history. An evening at City Tavern is certain to be remembered. Just imagine sampling specialties, such as pepperpot soup, colonial turkey pot pie, roast duckling, Thomas Jefferson's sweet potato biscuits paired with ales the ales of the revolution made from George Washington & Benjamin Franklin's recipes -- all served by costumed wait staff.

Watch an episode of A Taste of History on PBS, our Chef Proprietor Walter Staib will give you glimpse of what we do here at City Tavern.

"It is a must do in Philly when touring the area. Food and beverages are always good. Service is average for a big city like Philly."

"I chose this restaurant because of its historical significance and the food looked good. The ambiance is great but just wish they had the fireplace going the night we were there. One thing I noticed and I am sure it's meant to be that way, but I thought the chef/owner was too self promoting. His cookbooks were everywhere, there were all kinds of postcards on the table promoting his products. They were in your face. The fireplace mantle in the room we were seated in had his books on the mantle. Very kitschy. The turkey pie I had was ok, it could have used more flavor like poultry seasoning and I did not like the turkey cut into cubes. It made it seemed processed. The bread basket was good, I liked the rustic breads. I would probably go back some time in the future and try it again. I think it would be fun with a large group of friends. Also, we had a window seat and could see out the back and all I saw was plastic lawn chairs, did not go with the look of the tavern. Made it look very cheap."

"Showed up on time, restaurant was not full to capacity. We were asked to wait in a side waiting room. After 15 minutes hostess says will be a little while longer. 15 minutes later she suggests we eat in the waiting room. Instead of walking out we reluctantly agreed. Quite a while to get utensils, water, table candle, bread, salt and pepper for the table. These things had to be asked for or just appeared as the bartender brought them out. Yes, not a waitress. Soup was salty, turkey pot pie was excellent. Harpist was cool but no discussion or interaction with staff about the history of the location. Really annoyed me was a few minutes after we had the table set up, I went to the men's room and there were at least four open tables in the main room and in the basement dining room. So I returned to eat my salty soup looking at a wall in the waiting room."

"Though City Tavern is rebuilt, it was rebuild to make it seem quite old. Even the lighting makes if seem like you are dining in Ben Franklin's time. The food is from recipes of the time and the staff dresses as they did back then as well. It fits well with the old city and Independence Hall."

"There was a vegetarian in the group. When we asked if Ben Franklin really invented tofu, as the website somehow implied, the server was very gracious and gave us a mini history lesson about Franklin's time in Paris and his correspondence back to Philadelphia about how to cultivate soy into tofu and the origins of the rest of the recipe. He was great. So glad we asked. Got the beer flight which was much better than I expected. The bread basked was rather boring which is too bad as I normally really like Sally Lunn bread. Other dishes (pot pie, beef medallions) were fabulous."

"The staff was professional and courteous. The atmosphere was quiet and conductive to conversation. The service was prompt and accurate. Our experience was enhanced by the presence of fellow diners dressed in historical garb - a very interesting addition to the evening.
We recommend City Tavern and will go back on future visits to Philadelphia"

"Took my 92 year old mom for her birthday and she loved the ambience of this genuine colonial tavern. Our lovely young server in her traditional garb was friendly, and the menu, although leaning toward German fare was very well prepared. Appetizers were 4 large bacon wrapped shrimp with basil in a barbecue sauce (great) and cornmeal fried oysters (good). Entrees of smoked pork chop and homemade veal sausage both came with identical sides (sauerkraut and excellent buttery mashed potatoes), and my mom enjoyed her creamed mushrooms on homemade toasted bread, which also came in the excellent assorted bread basket. Only downer is we all craved bloody marys and they were out of tomato juice. Oh well, still a positive experience."

"For a "theme" restaurant, there was absolutely no follow through. The service was so inattentive and inexperienced. The way our wine was delivered actually was comical. The food was very tasty but the rest of the experience lacked so much."
