Stopped here for a beer and quick bite to eat. This is a great neighborhood joint with many regulars and good service. We enjoyed a couple of Yuengling beers – one of our favorites when we visit the east coast since we can’t get it in Minnesota. We also had an order of the beef street tacos which were very... More

Spent an afternoon here sampling beers and catching up with friends. If you are looking for somewhere hip and classy...this isn't it. However, if you want a low-key type of place that makes you feel at home, I recommend this spot. We did not sample the food, so I can't speak to that, but there was a good selection of... More

Got a few bits of bar food which were great, wings, chilli cheese dogs and tacos all around $3-5 Staff are very attentive, Debit Card mosaic on... More

Drinker's is a tough one. If you asked me to describe it in one word, I would quote Moe Szyslak in asking, "Is crap-hole one word?" It's a real, real dive. It sells 40s. Its "Taco Tuesday" is literally a joke, and one which often gets laughs. It's the worst. That said, it's a real, real dive. It sells 40s... More

This Pub does not try to be much more than a local neighborhood tavern and due to modest expectations and modest appearance with corresponding modest prices (For Center City) it succeeds beyond many places that deliver a fancier product at much heftier prices. It offers typical pub food...wings...sandwiches...fries etc plus dollar hot dogs during every Phillies game. And again, for... More

The plan for me and five of my friends to meet at a super-fancy Philadelphia landmark restaurant for boys night out. When three of my friends bailed on me, the rest of us decided to check out Drinkers. We were very pleased. Like the other reviews suggest, the ambiance was that of a dive bar, but it certainly didn't have... More

Went for drinks - nothing else. Was a slow Sunday. Have heard it is crazy on Friday and Saturdays. Service was attentive all night. Price was right for the excessive amount of beer I consumed. Loved the dive atmosphere and attitude. Would have loved to have a bar like this in my college town.
