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.

We love Jerry's and eat there often. We are always happy with the food and service. There is one issue and that's the noise level especially in the back area before the restrooms. The noise level (especially there) is so high conversation can be nearly impossible. I love the bare brick and the tin ceilings but if anything, no matter how minor, can be done to lower the resonance of very loud sound it would make Jerry's near perfect.

I'm a big fan of Jerry's. My girlfriend and I go for dinner all the time and love their menu, cocktails, and beer selection.
This was the first time we've been for brunch and they didn't disappoint. The Bloody Jerry was awesome and everyone enjoyed their meals.
It was surprisingly quiet for Saturday brunch in NoLibs, the restaurant was almost empty. Not sure if that was an anomaly or if they just don't get busy for brunch - I'll be back soon to find out!

Had friends in from California, including one named Jerry! Everyone enjoyed their dinner -- burgers and other sandwiches, and a great beer list! Deserts were a little off -- seemed like they were frozen/microwaved as they were extremely hot on the outer edges and still cold inside. I would stick to the brews and burgers, but otherwise a really great time. Parking is always an issue, but patience prevailed! Great time, been there often, and look forward to going back.

Finding the restaurant is a bit difficult and the neighborhood is changing, but not quite yet. However, once you walk into the restaurant you are transformed. The staff is great, very helpful, the food is superb and the atmosphere is wonderful.

Visited Jerry's once and had a great experience, so I decided to come back with a large group before a concert. Our server was very very nice, I think the issue was the kitchen and bar coverage. The food was over cooked, took forever, sodas flat, drinks took forever. It was a pretty bad experience. We ended up being late for the concert and what we though would be an hour dinner turned into 3, most of it being the wait.
Good local place
It took a few minutes longer than normal to get the table. It took longer than normal to get drinks. It then took me to notice that someone didn't show up for work and the skeleton crew did their absolute best to take care of everything. Cocktails were interesting and dinner was lovely. I'll try it again for brunch sometime.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
