About Us

The Happy Rooster has been a Philadelphia mainstay for decades, serving irresistible food in an atmosphere of old-school refinement and quirky charm.

Conveniently located within walking distance of Rittenhouse Square, The Happy Rooster is a Philadelphia icon that has been serving delicious food for over four decades. With the exception of a whimsical rooster-themed stained glass window, the exterior of this corner bar is unassuming. Once inside, however, quiet music and low lights create a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy drinks or a fabulous meal. Perched throughout in every size and medium, roosters definitely rule this roost.

We offer a great menu of lunch and dinner favorites, including Grilled Chicken Risotto, Heirloom Tomato Salad, and Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese. Our most popular dish, the Lobster Roll, is hailed as the best lobster roll in Philadelphia. Stop by for a bite to eat after enjoying the shops in the area, or spend an evening eating and drinking in our intimate dining area or on our outdoor patio. We also offer private dining, so consider us for your next office party, birthday, or special event. Come see why The Happy Rooster has been a favorite amongst locals and visitors alike since 1968!
