With a liquor license dating back to 1933, the year Prohibition came to an end, The Deck, which it is often referred to as, was originally located on the 3400 Block of Walnut Street.

  • The New Deck is a terrific spot on the University of Penn’s campus. Whether you are looking for a quick meal or a place to hang for the night with friends you will find a friendly, upbeat atmosphere with great food, drink and service. Enjoy!

Special Review:

“Simple, classic burger reigns over fancily topped
New Deck Tavern is a restaurant located just a block away from campus on Sansom Street that has vamped up the classic hamburger with new and tasty twists that can make anyone’s mouth water.

One of my personal favorites is the Deck burger – a juicy, well-seasoned, grilled half-pound burger covered with maple bacon, slices of Portobello mushrooms and topped with loads of melted Colby n’ Jack cheese. All of these flavors go well with one another and none overpowers the others in a strong way.

Another favorite is the crispy onion burger – a classic burger stacked with crispy onion rings, Swiss cheese and creamy horseradish sauce. The horseradish sauce is a nice complement to the fried onion rings while the mild Swiss does not take away from the overall meaty-burger. All of the hamburgers are cooked to order and not dry. Also, all burgers are served with a generous portion of crispy french fries and range from only $6.75-$7.50″

Our driver arrived a few minutes early, was professional, courteous and got us to the airport for our early morning flight without any problem! The car was immaculate and comfortable. I especially liked the 24 hour and 2 hour trip notification that was sent via email. It was reassuring to know they were following up. I highly recommend Corporate Sedan for any transportation needs!

My company had an international artist picked up at JFK and dropped off in Philadelphia, and the artist had the best time. The driver kept in touch with me throughout the day, so we could plan for arrival, and our artist had the most wonderful experience with the driver. That’s really astounding considering our artist had just gotten off a red-eye from across the world. Thank you so very much!
