About Us

quick link:

The Grey Lodge Pub is a friendly pub in Northeast Philadelphia. We are not the typical Northeast Philly bar, but then again we aren't the typical anything.

Thanks to our great customers, we are one of Philadelphia's best beer bars (honestly - Beer Advocate ranks us as one of the top 50 beer bars in the USA), featuring a constantly rotating selection of mostly local microbrews on draft. All of our beers are hand-tapped; we do not use our feet or any other body parts in the tapping of kegs.

We take our food as seriously as we do beer. Our french fries were named Best of Philly by Philadelphia Magazine.

Thanks to our customers, we are not just a great beer bar, but also just a great bar period; Esquire Magazine named us one of "America's Best Bars". We have multiple dart boards with free electronic scoring, and lots of other fun things to do. Every year we spend the $15 for an amusement permit so badger dancing is permitted.

The Grey Lodge Pub has two floors; each has a somewhat different personality. Both have the same great draft beer selection. Both feature great food. Both have great (but differing) whiskey selections. But each floor has a somewhat different vibe.

Many years and several names ago, we first opened for business during the Labor Day Weekend of 1950. The first floor still has some of that 1950s feel. The large oval bar encourages friendly conversation. Back in the early days as The Grey Lodge Pub, we didn't have any capital for flashy stuff (or even a decent floor) so we concentrated on doing the little things that make great bars great.

Our second floor dining room opened February 2005, the same day as our kitchen. Our second floor is a little more refined than our first floor and tends to be quieter. It is very family friendly, we even have high chairs, and a children's menu.

Our second floor features a small bar. Most of the seating is at tables, which can easily be pushed together to accommodate larger parties. ore intimate than our first floor, it is a good place for a date night, whether with a new friend or with your longtime spouse.


We display works from local artists on our walls. Currently on our second floor, we have work from Jane Keit and others. If you are an artist who would like to display your work, just let us know.
