Originally established in 1773, a full-service restaurant recreating an authentic 18th century dining experience. Stop in for lunch, dinner or drinks in the tavern to dine where the founding fathers did. Part of the Independence National Historical Park, this is the location where George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and so many famous history makers came to celebrate liberty. Waitstaff is in colonial costumes and the menu is based on recipes from the era.

Absolutely had the night of my life thanks to the staff and the experience here. Went on a date with my dream girl, and they treated us both like royalty.
