Contemporary american food, but done well. My server, Aaron, was awesome when I came through to have dinner with my dad. The cocktails were soooo good!

Love the decor & cared for by warm, polite and attentive staff. Had Caesar salads-they were good. The salmon entree was perfectly prepared and delicious on a bed of kale, pine nuts and golden raisins. Good selections of beer, wine and cocktails.

The Red Owl Tavern was a great place to just stop and unwind for a bit before resuming the craziness of tourism. Grab a local brew. Grab a burger. Grab some memories with friends. *CHEERS!*

Stopped here after exploring the nearby sites, as I’m sure many do, to grab dinner. It’s right across the street from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Prices were decent and the food was yummy. The corn and crab fritters were so good, and the...More

I enjoyed wonderful steak tartar when there. Obviously raw beef is gluten free! Chef Jorge Chicas is extremely talented, Like any good chef he should be able to accommodate dietary issues like yours.
