About Jerry's Bar
Jerry's menu is anchored by thoughtfully re-imagined bistro classics lovingly prepared by hand. Our bar is impeccably stocked - craft beer, boutique wines, a formidable whiskey selection and exquisite spirits. We offer cocktails as classic as they are inventive.
Like the food and drink, Jerry's itself was rebuilt, brick by brick, by craftsmen with a profound respect for heritage. It incorporates a rich collection of architectural treasures, culled from historic buildings around Philadelphia. The result - old school elegance and refinement, where every brick, column, cobble stone, marble slab, door and fixture has a story to tell.
Jerry's Bar is new in an old way, to be savored and sipped slowly, rooted in simple pleasures that are as fresh as they are timeless.

The Mother's Day Brunch was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The hostess was accommodating to our request to not have a high table and found us a set of tables upstairs over looking the bar and band.

Always terrific! The eggs Benedict was so perfectly prepared, the Bloody Jerry is one of the best Bloodies in the city and the coffee is strong and tasty. Love the jazz combo too for brunch.
Much more than just a bar!
Definitely a huge step up from standard bar food. They offer some special dishes like octopus, roasted chicken, fish and chocolate bread pudding. I have been there twice and enjoyed the octopus and fish both times. The mussels are delicious too, but really small. The bread pudding was enjoyed by all. The hamburgers looked tasty, but nothing extra special, and the Mediterranean salad plate was enjoyed at our table as well, though the fallafals were luke warm as was the octopus. This was not mentioned to the waitress as we had waited about 40 mins before receiving it, and had to ask for bread in between the apps and mains to hold us over during the next 35 minute lull. the waitress had to be flagged down whenever we needed something- water, a refill on a drink, bread, to place an order, and to pay the check. While we were still eating dinner we ordered desert fearing we'd have to wait another 30-40 minutes for that too. 3 out of the 4 deserts were very good, but the lemon curd had an odd texture and not enjoyed by our table as much as the other others. The whole restaurant must have been in the weeds, as the food was good but kitchen super slow, and then it must have been sitting waiting to get to our table as most of the dishes were not hot when served. The octopus was tasty, but very very small- 3 tiny pieces. Overall the food was okay, but not fantastic, and definitely not waiting so long for. The restaurant is really loud in the main dining room due to its proximity to the bar. The upstairs dining area is a much better dining environment as is the charming outdoor area... however, sitting under the heat lamp I was breaking a sweat while others at my table were putting on their coats to stay warm.
Just plain good
Apps did not disappoint. Meatballs and perogies were excellent. Had burger for dinner with a spicy sauce that was also perfect.
Service was awful, sticky bun was stale and cold. Took forever for drinks. Everything came out at different times. They need more staff. Used to be my go to brunch spot. Not going back
Nice Saturday dinner
A friend and I went to Jerry's for dinner at a Satruday night and we were seated in the alley which is one of my favorite spots. The server seemed busy but she was very sweet and helpful. The food was good and came out at a reasonable time. The best part about this bar is the beer list is always different and amazing.

excellent service and hospitality as always and bar is always quick. but as of late it seems like kitchen service has been quite slow on various occasions.
We went here for Easter Brunch on the recommendations of a few friends. I was so surprised and how light and airy the bar area was! We were sat in the side room, which was equally lovely and yet complete different. It smelled of hyacinths which was also a lovely surprise. The food was excellent. The staff was attentive and kind. The patrons ran the gamut from hipster couples to families with their kids. We will definitely be coming back.
I went to Jerry's Bar for the first time during brunch. I loved the atmosphere and that they had other meat options besides pork. The service was friendly but slow I think the fastest item that arrives was the bill. Overall a good experience. I'm always willing to give second chances and Jerry's sure deserves it.

The food was great, the service was lacking. Our waiter kept disappearing and it took forever to place an order. He also left to get wedges for balancing the table but took so long we just did it ourselves.
Poor service ruins the experience
We went to Jerry's before going to a concert at the Fillmore. It's a short walk away---three or four blocks--so it serves that purpose nicely. Okay, we were late for our reservation but we called ahead to say we would be. Our table was in the bar area and near the door. Bummer. It was 6:30 but they were out of pulled pork and another dish I can't remember. Bummer #2. And then we waited and waited for our beer and our food. Bummer #3. We really weren't there in expectation of having great meal. We just wanted an okay meal before a concert. But the poor service ruined the experience.

we go to Jerrys often. always a fun spot. known for great burger but this last time was just so so. salty and not up to usual standard. great service from Allison.
Food was so so but the ambience is what makes this spot special! If there is anything I would highlight from the menu is the homemade pita bread and the exquisite dips!
Very solid brunch place in an area that has too many places to eat in a lifetime. I ordered the eggs benedict and we had the wings to start. The wing were small but very tasty. The eggs benedict was AWESOME! The canadian bacon had a maple glaze on it that provided just enough sweetness and the hollandaise sauce had nice salty contrast. The texture was perfect too; the muffin did not get too soggy too quickly. It took over an hour to get our entrees after we ordered and the server was very nice and apologetic, but do not go if you want to get out within an hour. Overall I would go back.

We enjoy the weekend brunch. The music is a great add on during the meal. Enjoy the people that work there.
Long wait for brunch
Good ambience and nice jazz...but waited forever for our meal and then some of the dishes arrives lukewarm. Disappointing at least on this particular Sunday.

The short rib was amazing!! But besides that, it was a chilly 19 degrees outside and the table where we were originally sat had a slight chill, so they allowed us to move into the well-heated courtyard, which was gorgeous and toasty!
We made the reservation for Valentine's Day so our kids could experience great food, great music and we could do something for Valentines Day. We were not disappointed! From the appetizers (Mussels & Pecan Cinnamon bun) to the entrées we were pleasantly surprised. Our kids loved the music-as did we- and we will definitely be back.
Have lived within 5 miles of Jerry's for years, and finally had the brunch! It was great. Service was wonderful, food was terrific and the tap list was awesome. I definitely won't wait five years for my next visit!

One of my favorite brunch spots, great drinks. My pancakes were my favorite in the city, but were not on the menu last time, only disappointment
Eggs Benny were absolutely delicious! Loved the live jazz music too!
Great meal, service and setting
This was our first time at Jerry's bar and we'd definitely returned. My husband and I shared several small plates and salads, and thought they were all excellent. The draft beers were great and good value, the service friendly and the setting was a mix of couples and groups in the quieter eating section, and a vibrant bar scene on the other side, so it felt like there was something for everyone. Plus it's a fun neighborhood, and even though the parking was a little challenging, we didn't mind the walk to/from our car, since there was lots going on.
Great spot for an upscale brunch.
I was immediately happy with the service, and the ambience had a wholesomeness to it. The food was superb, and I reccomend you get a reservation.

We had a disappointing experience at this restaurant. Service was abysmal! Food was good, but the server ruined it for us.
Great salads, menu is however limited.
Great salads, menu is however limited.
We love Jerrys! Sunday there is live music at brunch! Food was really great. Broccoli Reuben is beyond amazing. Eggs Bene, Taylor ham sandwich, oh and the bloody Mary's! Run to Jerrys!
A New Years Eve dinner before going to an event.
More of a bar menu/small plate, but a few nice offerings for main courses. Nice mix of healthy plates (kale/squash salad, roasted brussel sprouts) and the delicious/more unhealthy ones we love (wings, fries, ribs, etc). Nice cocktail menu and great vibe with some classic soul/groove playing. Party hats and noise makers on each table.

Everything was fantastic! The food was great! Our server was great!
fun neighborhood place
We had a nice dinner with friends, great cocktails, food was pretty good, the perogie appetizer was awesome, my burger was good yet basic. I think this is a great place if you live in the neighborhood, the menu is small and classic, not a foodie place. We were seated in the adjacent "alley" room next to the windows on the street, although there were heat lamps we were very cold because there is a 3" opening along the floor that let in cold air from outside, I spent a good bit of the night rubbing my ankles to keep them warm.. not to mention all of the staff that opened the door next to us to leave after their shift, and 2 even left the door wide open as they left because it's doesn't have a proper hinge to close itself, so i had to get up and close it. I wouldn't be rushing back, but i can see how the neighborhood folk might enjoy a cocktail at the bar and a cozy meal in the main restaurant area.

We were disappointed that the menu has changed. We loved the baked eggs, steak and eggs and the apple spaezl but those were taken off. Please bring them back.

A neighborhood fave!
This was my third time at Jerry's and each time, I was with a different group of people who fell in love with this cool bar. Can't wait to go back and finally try the brunch!

Service was excellent and the place was beautiful. Food was good: the pork belly and grits was phenomenal, the west coast burger and the chopped beef, chopped sausage sandwich were very strong. Mussels were average. Would definitely go again.
Not the greatest but nice ambiance...
Food was ok. My burger was good, but date's fish sandwich was just ok. Non-traditional perogies were ok. Covered outdoor seating was nice if the weather is good.
Great food, environment, and service
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we sat outside under the terrace. Our waitress was so sweet and helpful. They're food was amazing. I think they change things slightly each day, but everything was made to perfection.
What a great find!
Went to Saturday brunch at Jerry's Bar and the food was excellent! Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was so good and even though I knew I should not eat everything on my plate, I could not stand the thought of leaving it. I will definitely go back and am just thinking of the right excuse to indulge in another fabulous brunch at Jerry's Bar.

Good food, good service, good experience. We'd go back.
Good food, low key vibe
Had an enjoyable 3 course dinner there recently sitting outside along the street (I recommend in their courtyard - we didn't notice that). Everything was prepared quite well and although I received duck leg instead of duck confit, it was well prepared. I don't think the 3 course menus are a bargain, so next time we will stick to ala carte :)
