    I thought the seating was a little crammed. It just fit the 6 of us with very little elbow room. Half the people got the all you can eat crab legs. It took way too long for the second batch to come and some were getting upset. The waitress made up for it by a very quick third round. They all said the crab legs were good. I had the crab cakes which were very good along with the aiolli sauce. The most disappointing was when we asked for Grey Goose for lemon drops and it was NOT Grey Goose (although we were charged for Grey Goose.) We didn't discuss this with the waitress. We figured we won't be back.

    We had our first experience at Chickie's and Pete's this past Sunday after the Eagles vs. Rams game. We had been recommended to it by my sister and brother-in-law, and we were certainly not disappointed. The Crab Fries have destroyed our ability to eat any other fries for awhile because they set the bar so very high - absolutely scrumptious. The atmosphere was energetic and fun, and we are anxious to take a trip back to Philly to eat there again!

    the service was not great. we order appetizers and dinner at the same time. part of the appetizers came out, then part of dinner, then the other appetizers and finally the rest of the tables dinner. the dinner was ok, not great. it was the little things ie. toasting the bun, having warm bread.

    Plenty of beer selections. Lots of decent (or perhaps above average) pub grub with a good selection too (although the menu is short in the salads department). Tons of TVs to watch sports. There's no fine dining here but if you are looking for food and drink worthy of sports-bar heaven, this place comes pretty close. And don't forget the crab fries.

    We were taken right in however we were ushered into the back party room, appetizers were timely, my crab came out shortly after and the rest of my family's food never arrived some 40 minutes after I had received my dinner. We are talking about a ham &cheese sandwich, cheesesteak and pizza steak. Essentially I ate alone the rest of our meals appeared after we said we were leaving and to cancel those orders. The manager came over and apologized and took those meals off of the bill,and sent them home with us, but we will never go back

    If you want to eat some good food, have a few drinks, and catch the game with a group of friends I highly recommend Chickie and Pete's. They have the BEST crab fries and wings in the city and the scene is definitely upbeat, especially when the EAGLES are playing and winning.

    Food was Okay...not great. I had Roast Beef Sandwich and asked for provolone on it. I expected a piece of cheese but got watery cheez-wiz cheese. Meat was luke warm. Girls ordered crabs. They were good but $30 for 1 crab. Way overpriced. Ordered crab fries that were not "hot". Ordered appetizers my sandwich came out first and the mussels I ordered came out last? We were eating 1 item and they were bringing out the rest of the order before we were done. I asked for coffee and was told they did not serve coffee??? I asked if they made Irish Coffee which they did so why do you not serve coffee??? Overall was $150.00 for 4 without tip. Very pricey.

    The ambience was great and the music was fun and upbeat. I think the kids really enjoyed that and so did we. The food all sounded great but was a little bit overpriced for what it actually was. Crab nachos were just cheap store bought nachos with canned cheese and crabmeat on top. I expected something more difficult to imitate at home for the price. The menu reads as being much more exotic than it really is. I wasn't impressed. Fodo was ok/good even but not worth the money. Service was average and food came out fairly quick which was nice with kids in tow.

    I would definitely frequent this spot again. I had a pretty large group and cancelled initial reservations we made in a private room. They were very nice about it...no hassle. I booked a large table instead and they still were able to accommodate my group of 11. Food came out fast.....very hospitable waitress as well (Noelle).

    Every time we go to Chickie's & Pete's, we can always count on consistently tasty food. Our favorite app to get there are the combo fries with crab fries and sweet potato fries- each dip they come with is fabulous. I hope they never stop making that combo!

    I initially reserved for 10 through open table and contacted the restaurant to let them know there would be more up to 15. They changed reservation without an issue. They were extremely helpful over the phone. Food was good and came out quickly. The server worked hard but was not so attentive. The atmosphere was awesome and the getup in the bar rocked. I was able to watch my other favorite MLB team on the huge tv screen. Loved it! They don't have desserts! What?? I didn't get cake on my Bday. Get some desserts boys!

    We went for lunch. Made a reservation. Table was ready and service stopped over right away. Wasn't very busy at all. Our orders were messed up. Ordered cheese steaks and they brought out chicken cheese steaks. Then the check came. They charged us for all of the sandwiches and when we brought It to the servers attention she tried to blame someone else. No apology. No let us knock off a soda or something. I'll never go there again.

We were seated immediately in a fun and friendly way (they were busting on us for being 5-min. late.HA! :) We had a beer in hand in 3 minutes, ordered our food, and was half way through eating already by 6:30. In no way did it feel rushed. Our waitress was fantastic, fun, attentive, and just what we needed after a long busy week. Thank you!

    Treated my son to this restaurant. Do think it is better suited for the younger crowd. If you prefer a calmer more serene atmosphere, then this place is not for you. Also, I was aghast when I discovered no dessert/coffee/tea on the menu. Did not care for the selection of salads, if you are a salad lover, beware! the only salad on the menu consist of romaine lettuce and cherry tomatoes, and it is unnecessarily large. On a more positive note the seafood tasted fresh and very good.
