Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Named for an old Celtic slang expression for a perfectly poured pint of Guinness, the Bishop’s Collar is a Fairmount staple. Drop some coins in the jukebox, kick back with a beer and discuss what you saw at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, just a 10-minute walk from the bar. Hungry customers love to pair their fare with the steak tip sandwich, chili, nachos or other dishes from the kitchen. Snag a seat outside when weather permits.
