Ridiculous Experience at Tavern 17, Phildelphia, PA

Strapped for time, I made a bad, bad choice. That choice was to eat at the restaurant at the hotel where Giao's friend, B., was staying. This was really a terrible experience and I was embarrased the whole time for having picked the place. The atmosphere was the opposite of authentic and relaxed. It felt like a prettied up Applebee's or something. The waitress, while very pleasant, was far from knowledgable about food or drink. Giao asked if they had any single malt scotches and she replied "yeah, i think we have all of them". They had 3, and not very good ones at that. Also, 2 of the things we ordered, wings and calamari, they were out of. We settled on sliders, which were actually not terrible. We couldn't get out of the place fast enough. I felt like a food fraud the entire time we were there.

Sliders $13
They had a bunch of different sliders, but we ordered the cheeseburger, the shortribs and the crab cake. They were not bad.
