    Can’t say I’m surprised. I ate there a couple of times, and it really not that good.

    Unsurprising. Odd location and overpriced, meh food.

  • Phoodie

    This place was one of my favorite Starr places. Very sad to see it go.

    Route 6 was overshadowed by Vetri’s Alla Spina and Osteria. I liked seeing a Starr restaurant in that location though! Hopefully something better takes its place.

  • Sonja

    One of my favorite places.

    This would be a better location for a Blues and southern comfort food by Starr.

    North Broad has a long way to go – until then not much is going to survive there. Vetri yes because of the name and the options that are more affordable than the Center City locations. But North broad is not attractive to Center City residents nor visitors. Clean it up fast

    The space was quite cozy and quaint. But during my entire meal, I was wishing I was at the Oyster House in center city instead. Over priced and small portions. Such a let down.
