Fabulous food and service. Large enough for groups though I felt the amtmosphere was well suited to small groups and couples. We had a lovely romantic evening as the setting was comfortable and not overly loud, mainly the food and service was what won us over. We will definately be back again.

Loved it! Took my mother
Loved it! Took my mother there for her birthday and she is fussy about her calamari. She said this was the best calamari she had ever had! Definitely in my top 5 restaurants in Philly!

VG Food & Great Value
Reservation for two on Sunday evening, 4/14/13, at 6:00. Ate inside, but there are outside tables. It was a bit too cool for us to eat outdoors. Very interesting decoration/mural on main wall -- worth viewing. Outstanding service. Very good food and a very good value for what you get. Just a very "cool" place to dine.
4/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place. It's nothing exceptional, but always very good, and not expensive. Eating at the bar is great, usually have some really good happy hour/bar deals. Definitely recommend. The new renovation makes the place even better.

Very, very pleasant restaurant
Very, very pleasant restaurant in Rittenhouse Square. I had their Manhattan Clam Chowder and it was terrific. A bit different than the normal chowder. Tasty. Then it was the swordfish. Cooked just right. And all for a very, very good price.
5/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant is aptly named
The dining selections are on topic and well prepared. The servers are always knowledgeable and friendly.

The food was excellent, and
The food was excellent, and the artistic flare to the decor was wonderful to look at. I would definitely go there again. The waiter was great, and knowing that it was a husband and wife team that ran the place gave more confidence to having a wonderful time.

Great Food. Great Service.
Seafood Unlimited is a very nice restaurant with great food, great service and the ambiance is quite nice. The servers and kitchen staff were very accommodating. I enjoyed eating at this restaurant very much.

Best softshell crabs
I love the softshell crabs here and look forward to eating them every season (late spring.) They have 2 ways of cooking them - sauted in butter with garlic and tempura fried. The first one is my favorite. They are always tasty and tender.

Best swordfish ever
The calamari was average, but tender. Swordfish was fresh and delicious. My wife really liked her Mahi Mahi special. Nice beer and wine selection. Service was average, server was busy and didn't check back after meals were delivered. Luckily everything was good. Would return.

Fifth time here in the past month!
Stumbled upon this just-off-Rittenhouse-Square place in May and keep coming back. Don't let the name dissuade you for trying them for brunch. The shrimp and grits are divine. So is the flounder Reuben (even though it sounds strange-it's great!) There are plenty of non-fish items too. The prices are great, and unlimited mimosas for $12 make it a real bargain compared to the places just a block away. I've tried it for dinner once, too. Only had a few appetizers, but they were all very good, and again, the drink prices are very reasonable compared to restaurants in the area. My only concern is that this place gets "discovered" and I won't be able to get in so easily anymore ;-)

We (three) enjoyed the 7 oz Lobster tail dinner special for $19.00..
It was very attractively served and perfectly cooked. It came with two "sides". Among us, we had french fries, baked potato, brocolli and all had cole slaw.
We will be back soon.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We've been looking for a good seafood restaurant for a while and saw the reviews and decided to try. So glad we did! The food and were great, loved the Rosemary Thyme Sangaria, and the Coconut Bread Pudding....OMG!! Will definitely be returning!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
best fish in town
I love the grilled fish. My favorite is the swordfish. My friend had arctic char. Both were delicious. I go there very often and am always delighted. I will definitely return and recommend it to others.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed the Saturday brunch - crab eggs benedict and shrimp with cheese grits. I would recommend this brunch for Sat or Sun. You can make a reservation and it is not crowded. There are many menu options and the food is very tasty.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service and quality of food
Service and quality of food was excellent! The decor was a delightful surprise. The Manhattan clam chowder was the best I've ver had.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great find near our house
Great little restaurant near our house - tasty food, good ambiance, not crowded. Will definitely be going back for the $12 bottomless mimosas!
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Softshell crabs are in season and are offered fried on the menu but you can ask for them sautéed which is my favorite. A delicious treat - the key lime pie has that perfect combination of sweet, tart, and creamy.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lobster dinner - delicious
We enjoyed whole steamed lobsters along with 2 sides for a very reasonable price. I dine there frequently -- all the fish and shellfish are excellent. The place is friendly and attractive. I will return many times and recommend it to others.

The special was great (twin
The special was great (twin lobsters) and the service was very pleasant and helpful. The drinks were great as well and at very reasonable prices.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I have lived in Center City for over 20 years and tried various restaurants in the area. My Thai and Seafood unlimited are the two we have stuck with. We have known Seafood unlimited when it was just an informal bunch of tables and chairs in back of the fish store. The quality of the seafood has been consistently outstanding and the atmosphere and service are friendly and comfortable. (My husband grew up clamming on the NJ shore so if he likes seafood it is good!)
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
it's a steal
The fish is really well cooked and super fresh. The prices are amazingly low for what you get. I only wish I'd remember to eat here more frequently.
8/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
My co workers and myself choose a restaurant once a month. All I can say from our waiter" David" to our tandelizing seafood dinner, every thing was perfect.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seafood, fresh and well prepared
Seafood, fresh and well prepared at reasonable prices! BYOB even though they have a full bar. My group of 5 loved it! The Lobster special was great and a real bargain.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't Miss the Lobster special
The Lobster special was amazing (transported us to Maine during a recent visit). The Tuna Pops were a perfect choice to start and since developing a taste for raw oysters, am glad to have a neighborhood spot that consistently has them fresh and delicious! Also, love the restaurant makeover last year and the attentive service and management.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
A few bones
A very good meal but a few too many bones in the very tasty fish.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent shore dinner special
We had the special shore dinner - mussels, a whole lobster and corn on the cob. Enjoyed it very much. I am a frequent diner at this restaurant and recommend it highly.

This seafood restaurant is
This seafood restaurant is a gem. The fish is the freshest and deliciously well-prepared. The servers are both pleasant and efficient. The bar area's walls are covered with the beautiful ceramic designs of Isiah Zagar. We dine here often and have never been disappointed!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seafood Unlimited, for it to be such a small & intimate place, packed a powerful punch in the seafood department. The seafood empanadas are DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!! I went for restaurant week, so they only give you one, but I will definitely be back to get 2, or maybe 4!
I didnt' care for the butternut squash soup and sent it back for the manhattah claw chowder. YUMMY! Seasoned very well and they did not skimp on clams.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went here for restaurant week. Great ambiance and cute restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was quick and attentive. Definitely try again.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I ate here during restaurant week. It is a small intimate space. I had ridden past the restaurant earlier that day and didn't even realize it. We had a four course meal. The New England clam chowder was great. It wasn't too rich. The seafood empanada was good, but the sauce was a little spicy. The steak and shrimp were very good I didn't care for the roasted veggies. The pineapple coconut bread pudding was delicious. It wasn't too sweet. I would eat there again.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very fresh seafood at reasonable
Very fresh seafood at reasonable prices. Extended Restaurant Week menu to Saturday night. Prompt, attentive service.

Excellent fish lunch
We enjoyed the Restaurant Week special. Started with mimosas. Then squash soup, panko-crusted fish entree, and carrot cake for dessert. Delicious food, courteous and attentive service. I have dined at the restaurant many times and will return again and recommend it to others.
9/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
20th st. dining
Small restaurant with excellent seafood that is reasonably priced.
The oysters are a real treat.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was very good (cooked very well, and served while still hot). Our waitress was very good at her job. Had a quality meal for a decent price. Would definitely return during the week, as it's a small restaurant and probably extremely busy on the weekend.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I came for dinner during Restaurant Week and the food was delicious and filling...we had to take the rest of our food home with us. I am definitely coming back to try their other choices on the menu with my fiancee in the near future.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
As usual, the quality and preparation of the fish was outstanding. On this visit, however, my roll tasted like it was defrosted in a microwave and the bits of broccoli that were served on the side were past their prime; if at home, I would have trimmed the brown spots from the stems. Otherwise, a very good meal.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not a fancy restaurant. Just consistently
excellent preparation of very fresh food served very professionally in a comfortable setting.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Seafood Meal
Good service, good seafood, Isiah Zagar mural a plus. BYOB and fillbar also a plus.

Although there is a full bar, the acceptance of BYO wine is a plus!

Lobster dinner - Wow!
We had an outstanding lobster dinner - the lobster was sweet, fresh, and tender. Our server was attentive and courteous. Wine was excellent. Not too noisy - great for conversation. The restaurant is one of my favorites and I will return many times and recommend it to others. Another thing I like is the happy hour. There are many choices of wine, beer and cocktails and tasty apps at discounted prices, offered consistently.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
we went for lobster night. The special was a 1 1/4 lb lobster with 2 sides for $15.00 or two for $25.00.
The lobsters were attractively presented, split and cracked. They were very delicious. Sweet, moist and easy to get out of the shells.
I had the sauteed vegetables and the home-made coleslaw for my sides. My wife had the baked potato and coleslaw.
We started off with a happy hour ($5.00) drink. Wine for her and a margarita for me.
All in all, a delightful experiece.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
As other reviewers have said, this place is tiny from the outside, and not much bigger on the inside, but the food is absolutely terrific.
The raw clams were so very fresh. The Sauteed Scallops & Mushrooms Over Rice (we substituted pasta) was rich and flavorful. The fish of the Fish & Chips was light and flakey and the chips were great: hot and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. The tuna, asked to be done rare, was actually done rare and was quite tasty. The calamari stuffed with crab meat was terrific, particularly the sauces (NB: It's not stuffed, fried calamari).
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Seafood Unlimited is one of our "go-to" restaurants for a reasonably priced, quality, delicious seafood dinner in Center City. The food is consistently very good to excellent, not exorbitantly priced and they are a byo with an extremely affordable corkage fee.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed crab eggs benedict, French toast on brioche, and other dishes. I like being able to make a reservation for brunch and not waiting in line. Server was courteous, friendly and attentive. The place was not crowded, not noisy. Overall very pleasant and relaxing.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had never been here before but had looked over the reviews and they were great so I dined there with my boyfriend and 8 others. It was excellent. The steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned, they didn't skimp on the drinks either. The service was impeccable and last but most definitely not least, the seafood was fresh and absolutely delicious. I would come back here again and again and it is most certainly one of my new favorite hidden gems in the city. A must visit for any foodie because you can tell that the owner takes great pride in his food and restaurant and my hats off to them!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding fish dinners
We enjoyed the veg tempura appetizer, then very delicious swordfish dinners with sweet potato cakes, then the best key lime pie. I go their often and will return and recommend it others.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Neighborhood Gem
We have been here twice and the food is fresh, tasty, consistent, well-prepared and well-priced. It is nice to have a few places in Rittenhouse/Center City West that are not too crowded (Audrey Claire, 20 Manning, Continental) or overly sceney (Pac, Rouge). It is a great place to drop in, have dinner and a beer with some friends.
