The oldest continuously operating (since 1860), family-run, beer-centric tavern in the city. Know this: they don't serve Guinness. You can get O'Hara's, a stout exclusively brewed in Ireland.
Allie Harcharek
Philadelphia's oldest tavern (open since 1860!) offers a spot to grab a pint, watch the game and lap up local history in a spot that outlasted Prohibition. Try the "Iggletini" during football season.
Philadelphia Magazine
Philadelphia's oldest tavern provides a suitably old school way to warm yourself.

McGillin's is transformed for the holidays. It takes 15 people 5 hours to hang the over-the-top decorations -- 3,000 feet of garland, 1,000 feet of lights, 150 red bows and 200 ornaments.

Love the free soup! You’ll have to order something — a drink, a sandwich (we like the straightforward and substantial turkey club) — to access the free soup (at lunch only).

Get a steal of a price on a pitcher of PBR or go for the craft brew. Either way, you've got to try their chili nachos or $0.35 wings on Tuesday Nights. See the fun we had on a Saturday - Tap More Info

On Wednesdays, two tacos for $1. Good food/good price!
Take off your hat and show some respect, they’ve been serving ale in this spot for 150 years. Try the McGillin’s 1860 IPA.

Try the Texas Fries - basically nachos with seasoned curly fries. Amazing.
