All four lunch items were excellent... burger, crabcake (my wife's a hard judge, she's from MD and makes them herself), harvest salad, and turkey club. Some noise from nearby construction, but overall very pleasant out on the porch, weekday so not as much foot/bike traffic. Walked a few miles on the path afterwards, always pleasant... we took friends who'd never been, they said it was hard to believe this tranquil a spot exists within a large city like Philadelphia.

We all ordered egg dishes and they tasted very good. 1 of the 4 orders came out incorrectly. The coffee was served lukewarm. It's a very nice place. Service is slow even when it is not crowded at all. We did not complain. I would return

The service was slow, but it looked like it was one waitress for the whole outdoor seating. The food was good but the fries were cold. The atmosphere was nice. The price was a little high for burgers and chicken sandwich.
