We came to town to see the Mummer's parade on New Year's Day and stayed in the historic district so we could enjoy the fireworks at Penn's Landing New Year's Eve. This place was within walking distance from our hotel and $75/ person for a holiday meal seemed reasonable. We arrived for an early dinner with very little wait time. The atmosphere was the first thing we noticed. All candelight, period costumes, live music upstairs (harpist) and down (cellist). This setting would normally feel very stiff and formal, but somehow it was casual and intimate. This was probably due to a collection of smaller dining rooms. Our server was friendly and attentive while still staying in character. Serving times for each course were well paced. I recall having duck sausage, soup, prime rib, and I think my other half had pork chops. All dishes were executed very well, and while I didn't have some revelatory experience (I like to cook a lot at home), I do recall having no complaints. For me to leave a restaurant feeling content is the highest compliment I have to offer. So, plan a visit and take a little step back in time. Enjoy!
