A word from Route 6 Restaurant
Named after the famed highway that begins in Provincetown, Mass., and runs through the heart of Cape Cod, Route 6 celebrates the cuisine that is beloved in coastal towns from Maine to Maryland. Offering a seasonal, sea-to-table menu with classic dishes from Executive Chef Andy Kitko, such as clam chowder, lobster rolls, and buttermilk fried oysters as well as daily lobster and whole fish selections, this 150 seat restaurant will instantly transport you to the relaxing lifestyle of the eastern shore. A spectacular wood-burning oven and grill adds a distinct flavor to the food while filling the room with the smells of oak and fruit woods. The chef's counter, with seating for 20, is the ideal spot to order oysters and clams from the raw bar, and peek into the open kitchen. Dessert is not to be missed, as pies and cobblers are served up hot and fresh. The beverage list will feature 20 beers by the bottle and six on tap.

    A welcome addition for seafood lovers. I felt like I was back in Maine. THe fried clams were excellent as was the fish of the day. Everthing we had was delicious. THe bread pudding was amazing and didn't need the bourbon caramael sauce.

    We have been waiting with anticipation for our first visit to Route 6, since we heard about the plans. It DID NOT disappoint. We have reflected back all weekend on how much we enjoyed the meal..the oysters, fried ipswich clams, the caesar salad was one of the best we've had, the black bass, lobster roll and johnny cakes (actually for desert) to finish our wine with. They were savory, but had maple bourbon butter which was perfect. The wait staff was professional, attentive without being too aggressive. If we had one suggestion to offer to even "up the ante". The buttery lobster roll would have been even better if the meat was less chilled. We let it sit for a little while...otherwise...PERFECT!

    waiters overly solicitious. telling us "their favorite drink" we eat out almost every night for the past 30 years...we know our drink & we know when something is being pushed from the kitchen. steamers inconsistent sizes, & sandy.ordered a martini straight up, olives on the side. glass arrive 3/4 full my husband commented she had no trouble delivering w/o a spill. he ordered another martini asking for it to be filled to the top just like other quality restaurants do. it arrived 3/4 full her answer. we measure by the jigger, interpreted, chain-style restaurant) disappointing. Palm is a chain, their Martini's overflow. our fisherman's stew was skimpy with fish, but served beautifully. went home and had a PB sandwich

    The food was excellent - the smoked bluefish starter was great as was my 2 lb grilled lobster. The only possible short coming is that the wine list is pretty short, but a reasonable selection. Big beer list, though.We will be back!

    Dined on 11/30/2011
    I dined at Route 6 last evening. The space is cavernous with an "industrial" feel. I think it has the potential to be quite loud. We were seated in the outer dining room where there was a banquet table set for what looked like 30 people (but no one ate there while we were there.) Service was a bit uneven. My DC arrived before me, and rather that just taking a drink order from him, the waiter insisted on telling him the specials. During the main part of the meal the service was prompt, but it took forever to order dessert and to get the bill. The drinks were good if not a bit mundane. They had takes on a Cape Codder and a Blueberry Cosmo. Pretty standard. To begin the meal they bring you their house made oyster crackers and horseradish

    The service was fantastic! Our server, Ben, was great! The clam chowder was....wow! And the bread pudding we had for dessert - with house-made banana ice cream! - was so, so good! OH! And they make their own hot sauce! Ha! Ha! It was great!

    Not open for lunch! Wanted to have a luncheon with a group later this month, however, they haven't yet decided if they are going to open for lunch yet. Service was very attentive. Raw bar was delicious. Crab cake delicious. Although it is mostly a seafood house, my husband was in the mood for steak and the filet mignon was seasoned and prepared perfectly. Filet was tiny but really good. Portions are generally small, prepare yourself to have an appetizer and salad or soup before your entree if you are very hungry. Clam chowder was pretty good, although lacking that clam chowder flavor, not many clams, tasted more like good potato soup. Crab cake came with cole slaw, not a good pairing especially not at dinner time. Overall a great experienc

    The decor is nice, otherwise nothing special about the food especially for the price given the many dining options in Philly... Good for those who live nearby, otherwise not worth the trek.

    Another perfectly themed Starr establishment. You really get the New England clam bar feeling, but nicer. I'm a big soft shell clam fan and they are nearly impossible to find in this area. I was in heaven. Also, the house made oyster crackers were far superior to the typical seafood restaurant fare. Clam chowder (New England, of course) was yummy as was the crab imperial. Fried clams and oysters were very good but I prefer less crust. The perfectly fried very thick, crunchy coating overpowered the delicate seafood inside. Next time I'll try a lobster.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 11/19/2011
    Raw bar was surprisingly good. Johnny cakes are great, but the maple butter is a little heavy. W went on the opening weekend, so the server s still getting the hang of things. Tables are great, and even thou the place is huge the ambient noise is quite low. Solid beer list, and the wine was great with the seafood. One final note - we tried a lot of the sides, and found that the Brussel sprouts were unusually good' charred just right and paired with a few chunks of apples which were a great add-in Would recommend the chocolate bread dessert, which was incredible with their banana ice cream. Fish is incredibly fresh, as you'd hope given the name.

    Very nice recreation of a New England seafood restaurant. Seafood was very fresh and the service was very good for the 2d night the restaurant was open. Special recommendation for the chilled lobster appetizer. A real bargain at $13. Nice wine and drink list.

    Wonderful dishes. Went the second night it was open. Helpful staff if you want to try something new. The chicken fried lobster tails were good. Would definitely make a meal out of the starters. Took a little too long for entrees after appetizers, a concern as we were a 5:45 reservation Great spot, hope they invigorate the neighborhood even more. The perfect place to go for treif after services....
