Two Stones Pub

The best craft brew selection and food to match, that’s Two Stones Pub. 

Sometimes you find a place that you never want to leave. It’s not the food, the staff or the beverages served. It’s a combination of all three that just hits you perfectly. The rarity of the special craft brew selections proffered at times. The way the bartender smiles when you walk in the door. The way the seat feels just like it was built only for you. That’s how we want you to feel at 2SPK. Plain and simple.

Join the PhillyMINIacs and enjoy an evening of gastronomic joy. We will be ordering off the regular menu, and separate checks by table.
