Route 6 Restaurant
My family went here as a bigMy family went here as a big group, for a special occasion...it has a very energetic, fun vibe. We were in a rush and had special requests on top of it. The staff could not have been more professional, friendly and supportive. And the food was just excellent!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to lingersuper brunch. The waiter was excellent, Mark. We had a great time. It was very nice for the pair of little twins across the room, who were provided the cutest wrap around bibs. Nice time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great EscapeWhen you walk into Route 6 you are transported to a beach town having great seafood. You forget you are in Philadelphia yet alone on North Broad. Route 6 is a great escape! We went with our kids and had a blast. Everything was great, the raw bar, lobster roll, fish sandwich, everything!!!!! We can't wait to go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionReserved a table for four for my Sister's Birthday, Everything was terrific from the moment we entered the restaurant to when we left. Cherrystone clams from the raw bar were fantastic. Our salads and soups surprised everyone. All entrees were tasty and prepared to perfection.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good, althoughThe food was good, although the portions were small. Atmosphere was great and having valet was a plus. The service was just okay, I felt our waitress had too many tables on a busy Saturday night.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, but not GreatThe food here was good, but was overpriced for what it was. I was greatly disappointed since this is the first time Steven Starr has let me down. :(5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellentThe service was excellent and the food was really good but it was really noisy. We were a party of 7 at a long table and the people at one end couldn't easily talk with the people at the other end.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCasual center cityGreat place if you are in the mood for terrific seafood and want to be a little casual. The Martinis, service and food are great. I wish the bar area was a bit larger.
I will return to sample more things on the menu.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one of the nicestThis was one of the nicest restaurants I have been in a really long time. Certainly one of my favorite Steven Starr restaurants to date. The asthetics were beautiful! The food was fantastic! The service was top notch! I really cant give this place enough stars.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, staff wasFood was great, staff was great. Another Starr gem. Downside they should not charge $12 for valet. Bad area, and they are doing fine on the food and drinks to club you on valet.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent seafood in PhillyThe food was excellent and the decor was well done. Prices felt fair and although it was prime time on a Saturday night, the staff was on top of everything. The main room was a bit loud but nothing that disturbed our meal. There is another room which seemed more quiet. The only other criticism, which is no fault of the restaurant, would be that some people had brought young children which felt a bit inappropriate. I would highly recommend Route 6 and look forward to going there again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster Roll is all I can say!!Everything we ate was amazing!1 I love,love, love the lobster roll!!!!

So much better than the traditional crumbly ones I grew up eating. We shared an order of calamari, just so-so. Too much breading and very meh! I got the wreckfish with broccoli and corn. Delicious! My husband got the salmon with rice and broccoli, also delicious. My brother got the special halibut which he thoroughly enjoyed. My sister-in-law got crab cakes just bursting with jumbo lump crabmeat. We loved how you could pick the sides to go with your meal. For dessert we shared 2 apple pies which were very good. Dessert menu didn't have anything else we liked.Great atmosphere. Crowded but had no trouble talking at our table.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food-small portionsVery good fish and shellfish but we were disappointed by the small portions.
