Venerable Old City destination for eclectic, occasionally exotic beers. Just be careful: There is a very good chance you'll end up spending the entire night here once you get started.
Prime day-drinking vibe, with just enough light streaming in to keep your internal clock ticking. Only opens early Thu.-Sun., but put it on the shortlist for pre-Ritz-matinee drinks.
A welcome haven for beer lovers (especially fans of Belgium's offerings) that's much calmer and grown-up than many of the surrounding businesses in wacky Old City.
How do you educate a fool? – Too many people believe the Irish bar Monks is actually Belgian. How do we educate these fools? Some of them have enough digits to write, quite a surprise. Actually it's just one kid who'll never have the chance to learn foreign culture. This place is Belgium. Belgium, the amalgamation of quirky towns and traditions, it is not something that conveniently fits in the simple mind of a young South Jersey person. What you see at Eulogy is the true Belgium, something that will elude the ignorant for a long time but not you and I, come learn and enjoy.
Belgian?? – I went to this so-called Belgian bar/restaurant just this week and thought it was awful. They have good bottled beers but the draft selection was poor. And the food was just you're usual bar food with no Belgian twist at all. Monk's is still the as authentic as you can get.
First Time in Philadelphia – I just moved here from New York and was very happy to find a restaurant tavern with international aspects to it. Too often Philadelphia is thought of as a blue local local town with no acceptance of the outside world. When I stopped in this restaurant this weekend I threw that stereotype out the window. These were very friendly worldly people. Both of the bartenders were from Belfast and the host who greated me was from Puerto Rico. Right from the start I was happy. They had a huge beer list of delicious beers and the food was great. I'm glad to be in Philadelphia
Where have all the cowboys gone? – The food is fantastic, the red mussels remind me of my favorite Italian restaurant. I asked the chef about them and he said they make them that way because so many people from south philadelphia expect them to taste that way. I loved the french fries, they are the best I ever had and now I want dip in a bottle at home. They had over 200 beers and that's the most I ever saw. The bartenders are very witty attractive men and they get as many women at the bar as men, that's really rare in the city. Don't know how this wound up in Old City but thank God it did, no Glam phonies here.
THE GREATEST RESTAURANT IN THE WORLD – Had the duck, mussels and fries and they were exactly the same as my trip to Brugge Belgium in February, superb! I thought mussels from Maine would be different than the North Sea mussels but somehow this place got it perfect. The fries were exactly the same and they must import their dip for the fries because it's the same as the Devos Lemmons brand I brought home a case of from Belgium. The duck was right on, I hate it when places try to overcompensate with a lot of sauce on duck. This duck was perfect, not too chewy and cooked perfectly with understated seasoning. Great job, this is the greatest place on the face of the earth.
Philadelphia's ONLY Belgian Tavern – I've been here twice every week since it opened and this place is outstanding. Neither I nor the citysearch editor know what she is talking about, this is the best food in Philadelphia. As an ex-Monk and Notredame diner the thing I love best is the fact it is actually owned by a BELGIAN who is passionate about the country's beer, food and history. You don't get that at the Belgian places owned by the Irish, all they are doing is benefitting from this guys country's beers. The ribs are to die for, and the fries are incredible authentic Belgian, better than in Brussels. The reviewer from citysearch obviously has never been to Belgium and probably rarely outside her New Jersey hometown. If you want authentic Belgian food and beer be real, go to Eulogy Belgian Tavern if you're not careful you might just learn something.
Not quite there – I went to Eulogy on a sunday afternoon. It was quite only a few people at the bar. We sat on the second floor and were the only people there. The service was phenomenal. The beer list was extensive however is seemed to be beefed up with less than belgian brews. I thought the menu was thin. The food however was very good. My biggest problem was that I kept wishing I was at Monk's. Eulogy tries the go the distance unfortunately it falls short.
At Long Last...... – Finally Eulogy is open!
And I was not disappointed. Good food (reasonably priced) Great beer selection, knowledgeable staff, charming atmosphere.What more could one ask?
I particularly recommend the Napoleon Burger, washed down with a tasty bottle of my new favorite beer Mortimer!
Keep up the good work, Old City needs this place!
Great Beer and Food – This place was crowded when I went during the weekend but I got a seat upstairs. I ate the ribs and they were very good. They've got alot of beers and I tried a couple Belgium beers I don't remember the name though. My waiter was quick and friendly. I recommend this place.
