A fire crackles away in a stone fireplace. Natural light streams through large windows. Candlelight casts a flickering glow across glossy wooden tables. At Jasper's Backyard, it's hard not to feel cozy, especially with the wintry air swirling around outside. Perhaps that's why this comfortable, casual pub is beloved by locals.

From the cocktails to the crab fries, Jasper's Backyard has something for everyone. Kick off your meal with the Conshy Crab Fries, which are smothered with tender lump crab meat, Mornay sauce, and, of course, Old Bay seasoning. Pair the snack with a Pomegranate Mule, Jasper's sweet take on the classic Moscow Mule. Or try one of the local beers (some crafted right at the Conshohocken Brewery) or a glass of wine. Then move on to one of the inventive American entrees, like the chipotle-marinated Mahi, the balsamic-soy-braised short ribs, or the eight-ounce filet in a sake-shiitake sauce.
