Dock Street South is a brewery, mess hall + restaurant, lounge, and coffee bar opened in August 2019.

We’re open seven days a week, beginning with coffee at our on-site, Center of Gravity Coffee Bar in the morning, where you can snag coffee, cappuccino, espresso, pastries, and wifi. A full menu of Mediterranean small plates is available for lunch and dinner.

All brewing and canning is done on site. Brewery tours are offered.

Dock Street South is available for parties, weddings, showers, graduations, birthdays, meetings and more.

A menu of rotisserie, Modern Mediterranean, and European small plates with some focus on Sicilian dishes. Think: sandwiches on rustic bread with olive oil, inventive salads, international cafeteria classics - great food that stands on its own and also pairs well with phenomenal beer and cocktails.



Dock Street South has 12 beers on tap, as well as hand-pumped cask beers. The list is constantly changing, as fast as we can brew and you can imbibe. Check back for exciting new year-round and seasonal offerings that include a pale ale and decocted lagers. Our taps are always a mix of staples and one-offs.



Come early to enjoy coffee, espresso, cappuccino, pastries, small bites and bagels beginning at 7a.m. during weekdays and 10 a.m. on weekends. Bring your laptop and work in the daytime or meet friends for something caffeinated - long before Happy Hour.

Is Dock Street South Dog-Friendly?

We sadly aren't able to allow puppers inside (as per the health department - if it was up to us we'd have a dog:human ratio of minimum 1:1) but we are adding outdoor seating soon and will happily host pups (and their humans) outside!

Do You Have Pizza at Dock Street South?

We have pizza at Dock Street West just over two miles away, and we don’t feel the need to duplicate that - and frankly, we could never recreate what we have in West Philly anywhere but there. So, you’ll have to cross the river to enjoy the best Pizza in Philly, but here at Dock Street South you can enjoy Mediterranean-inspired small plates. Like the menu at Dock Street West, the food at Dock Street South feels very true to our roots, in a different way - Dock Street's president and founder was born in Sicily and grew up there, and like many immigrants in South Philly and beyond, she is happy to share this other part of her culture via food.

The concept behind the food is super fresh, seasonal, high-quality and high-end food minus the fussiness of a fancy restaurant. We want people to sit back and enjoy the space like it’s their own home - communal tables, little nooks and crannies to gather in - but eat like it’s fine dining. And hey, if that’s not your thing or if you just really, really love our pizza (understandable!), we would be more than happy to see you in West Philly!
