Known for their deicious cheesesteaks, Jon’s Bar and Grille also offers over 80 bottled beers.

Looking for a new place to eat in Philly? Jon’s Bar and Grille is the perfect place to go. It’s a laid-back atmosphere with great food and a wide variety of craft beer on tap and bottled.They are known for their delicious cheesesteaks made from fresh steak that is cooked to order.

Jon’s is the only bar on South Street that has two floors along with outdoor seating for when it’s nice outside. The entire building can seat up to 140 people and there are a total of 10 flat screens to watch different sporting events.

If you like premium craft beer, Jon’s is a great place to try. They have 20 beers on tap including 10 favorite beers and 10 seasonal/speciality beers. Along with the draft beer, there are a total of 80 bottled beers.

“The atmosphere is comfortable, you can come however you are and it’s very casual,” Donna Sarkisian, owner/manager, said.

They also feature something called “craft beer flights.” This includes a beer sampling of four draft beers. The draft list changes and if there is something of interest, you need to act fast. There is a Facebook page for the release dates of the different selections.

During the holidays, if you need a party catered, Jon’s is the perfect place to do so. They have appetizer trays, sandwich trays, entrees and dessert trays.

If you go to Jon’s to eat their cheesesteaks and cheeseburgers, Sarkisian says they are the best items on the menu.

Every Wednesday at 7 p.m., they have a “Quizzo night.” It is a live trivia game that is played in teams. The object is to answer the most trivia questions correctly. Quizzo is a Philadelphia tradition that started in 1995. This game has become popular at different bars / restaurants across the country. You can even win prizes including  t-shirts.

If you can’t stay and hang out, you can always take out beer to go. You can mix and match any specialty beer into a six-pack. This also makes a great gift for beer lovers.

Jon’s is a family-friendly place to go. Children are welcome and there is a kid’s menu if needed. There are also highchairs available and a family-accessible bathroom.

Larry Fine, one of “The Three Stooges,” born at 606 South 3rd Street, used to live in the building that is Jon’s Bar & Grille. They want to remember Fine’s legacy as one of the best entertainers in America, which is why his face is on their logo.
