"I'll rarely give 5 stars for a bar. But Bards has it all. Excellent food on each menu. Always inventive specials on new dishes and alcohol specials. The wait staff and bar tenders are truly the nicest in Philadelphia. They're quick to help local organizations host fundraisers and events. Simply put, it's top class."
