Saloon Restaurant Restaurant Review

: The over-decorated Victorian dining rooms are always crowded and noisy, and the polished wood, brass fittings and stained glass always gleam. Waitresses breathlessly recite long lists of daily specials, and then deliver portions of food that are as outrageous as the décor. Steaks and chops may be the Saloon's bastion, but the Italian specials (after all, it is in South Philadelphia) are well done. Start with, but share, the antipasto-inspired Saloon salad that is full of salami, eggs, bacon and artichokes as well as greens. Fried smelts are a crisp treat. If radicchio sautéed with lump crab meat and shiitake mushrooms is featured, by all means try it, and also the deep-fried fettuccine fritters with crushed fresh tomatoes as well. The wine list is as enormous as the portions. The bar scene hosts a lively mix of neighborhood regulars, trolling singles and date-night couples.
