Covid 19 not stopping Race from pleasing their customer.  Order and pick easy and all so friendly! The chicken Parmesan dinner was delicious from the sauce to the chicken to the homemade noodles!  Plus there's bread and the most amazing salad with tomatoes and bacon.  The salad dressing was also delicious.  Plenty of good!  Definitel ... read more

After staying in a small apartment down the street from here I frequently stopped in for some drinks, if you’re lucky to get a bar seat on a busy night you’ll get a front row seat at som seriously skilled bartenders, beyond the aesthetics and old school charm, this place has great brews, good food, and EXCELLENT service.

BUFFALO CHICKEN SANDWICH!!!!!! Seriously though get it. Also, the fireplace is legit during the winter, and the front doors open during the summer. Convenient dog hooks outside for the doggos while you eat, and they have the best d@mn staff around. Shout out to Caite - she's the best!

Risotto with shrimp, crab; smoked salmon. 8oz Denver steak Au Poive (peppercorn crusted/ Cabernet Demi Glacé). What a great hidden gem in Old City, Philadelphia. Risotto was executed perfectly. Tender rice and the flavor of all the seafood came through. The shrimp were also cooked perfectly and seasoned just enough for my liking ... read more

Excellent. Will definitely go back again
Excellent food and unusually large beer selection for a small pub. It has become a must visit the next time I am in the area. They have a small but varied menu that is constantly changing. Good sized entrees in the $15-20 range ... read more

This cozy tucked away spot is perfect for a drink or a full meal. Escape the hubbub of the city and go where the locals do for good eats and tasty drinks.

Dropped in for Army Navy game with a group of 7. Just found this spot right around the corner from our hotel. What a lucky find. Would travel from the other side of town for this quaint, cozy, and timeless joint where the service was as top notch as the food. An absolute hidden gem.

Quiant and cozy. Food and beer selection were good. This place has a love for the Flyers so that's a good thing! An old operational antique cigarette machine down by the bathrooms complete with some vintage photos of the area is cool. Uber impressed with their care in not using plastics/styrofoam for to go/take home. No plastic straw ... read more

Dropped by on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was packed! It had a real neighborhood feel. I mean, there was literally only one table left and luckily, it was ours for the taking!! My friend and I were tucked away in a corner of the restaurant, directly adjacent to the large barn doors that open in the warmer months (so I am tol ... read more

I returned to Race Street Cafe for brunch recently and was not disappointed. Service was friendly and there were quite a few brunch selections that sounded great. In the end, I went with the feta and spinach omelet, which came with tater tots, choice of breakfast meat and toast, and a side of fruit. Everything was delicious!

My family is here and they can be picky eaters - which can mean that I don't enjoy where we eat as much. Race St was good for them and I still got to enjoy my food too. Might be the best French Fry in Philly.

Nice ambiance, good prices. Great choice of drafts. This bar is a great place for lunch, they usually have specials that are really interesting and some surprisingly good like a chicken dijonaise with Dauphine potatoes. The brunch is not as diverse but again great specials on the menu. Fries are good. Would recommend any time ... read more

Started with great calamari, then the Spicy Southwest Turkey Burger which was cooked perfectly, and finished off with the tastey apple crumble.
Jack Morgan via google.com - Oct 30, 2019
Then we ordered the chicken quesadilla for an appetizer to start off. It came right away and tasted so good. It had just the right amount of chicken and cheese inside, and had a spicy salsa drizzled on top. I like this place cause the food is always so tasty, and the staff are super friendly and are good at their jobs. When people ge ... read more

This was a gem, we were going to the aquarium and looking for some place close by that was local and this place was perfect. I had the eggs on horseback, which is Filet topped with two poached eggs with fruit and tater tots. Let me say it was amazing! The location is small but we had great service. Would highly recommend this place.
