    Great for a REAL meal before them game. Xfinity Live has lots of food, drinks, and fun available before, during, and after the game. But the Xfinity Grill gave us a place to valet our car and sit down and have a real meal. And it was good!! I definitely recommend reservations if you are going before a big game or concert. We did thank goodness and moved on in front of a whole lot of disappointed people!

    Nearby the sports arenas make it a great stop before a game. Perfect location, great setting, easy to get to while parking for the sporting event of your choice. Very enjoyable, at a minimum it could be quieter but with the present decor it would be tough to muffle. Not a big concern as if you want vibrant you get it.

    I visited Spectrum Grill prior to a show I was attending at Wells Fargo with my husband and 2 friends. The service was definitely the highlight of the restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly, attentive, and efficient However, the food really was not worth the inflated prices that I have come to expect from Comcast/Xfinity. Fries were overdone and lukewarm at best. My husband and one friend had ordered the steak as they offer a half price special on Friday evenings. The steak was salty and poorly seasoned from what they told me, and it was not worth the money even with the discount. If the restaurant is charging exorbitant prices for pub food, I expect much better quality entrees than what we received.

    Had a good time before Xfinity concert on Saturday night. Excellent waitress from New Zealand. Ordered bread pudding for dessert and that certainly was beyond perfection! Outstanding! You have to see and taste it to believe something could be so good! Well done. Overall though, a nice experience with a great waitress in a comfortable slightly upscale impeccably clean setting. Will go back again.

    We had a wonderful meal here before the phillies game the other night. We were treating my parents and grandmother so it was nice to find a spot with something for everyone and not crazy loud like a lot of the other spots close by. Service was absolutely perfect. The managers and servers were super attentive and nice. Thanks for a great start to our family evening out!

    Food was wonderful and the price was very reasonable. We only went there because the kids were at a concert but I would go again. I went with my mom but there was all size parties. We Didn't know about the valet till we were there. It was $26.00 but they took $16.00 off the bill. The only downside of the place it cost you $10.00 to park. I don't know if there is not a concert if there is street parking. I don't like to have to pay but had no other place to park. Another downside was if you are waiting when a concert is over they don't let you out of the lot. The attendants were very nice and I felt bad for them that security told them that no one can leave. So if you want a fast get away do not park there. I would go again :)

    Went before a game, but very busy and slow service. Had to take our dessert with us because it was almost starting time of game. Over one hour for a sandwich!! Food was good but on game day you must plan on extra, extra time.

    Dined with 2 other adults and 3 kids before the KP concert. The restaurant is conveniently located at the site of the big stadiums; that is why we chose to dine there. The staff was attentive and provided good service. The waiter was friendly. We had a reservation and they honored our reservation - on time! The food was average.

    While the food is so-so, the location and comfort are excellent if you are looking for a quick bite or drink before or after a baseball or football game. I like having a nice table or booth, waitress service, air conditioning or heat, and the five minute walk to either ballpark. This has become my go-to spot for avoiding the heat at a Phillies game, going in right at game time. And getting to the Linc on the early side to relax before walking across the street. On the menu, stick to the "standards".

    The food was great, but we really had lousy service. There were people that came in after us and they all left and we were still there eating. My husband ordered soup and I ordered a salad, which came right away but our sandwiches took a very long time. Our reservations were for 5:45 thinking we would be out in an hour, but as it was we were late for the game. We are thinking something happened with our order, but the waiter kept saying they were really busy which is understandable, but why did everyone get there food and leaving and were still there. Probably won't come back.

    We've dined at the Spectrum Grill before events at the Wells Fargo Center several times. The location is its best quality. Food is mediocre and the service is OK. We will be exploring other venues within the Xfinity complex to see if there is a better value proposition than the Spectrum Grill. Will be be back, likely, but really need to visit some other venues.

    Great food, little disorganized service. Our server had too many tables to take care, kept forgetting to bring us drink refills. When we gave him our dessert order... waited and waited and desperately tried to get his attention. By this time after at 20 minute wait we just asked for check, which still took time.

    Very nice ambience with good attention to detail by waitress. $16 for a burger, fries and small cup of coleslaw is too much. Only bottled beer for $7+ also a little high. Location is key but you pay for the convenience. As long as you are willing to spend too much, you will be happy with your decision since they will modify your order to work with the customer including cooking instructions and gluten-free.

    When attending a sporting or music activity, it is nice to have an upper level eating establishment. The Grill is just that; the good is very good-a little pricy, and the service very professional and warm. We had a great time which was our second visit and would return when in the area.

    You would think that a burger and fries would be easy to prepare and serve. However, my "classic burger" wasn't hot when it came to the table. It had great grill markings which were obviously not from the grill but the standard form of the burger gave away that this was a pre-formed burger. The fries are touted as "parmesan and rosemary" which looked very nice but lacked flavor. My dining partner had the crab cake sandwich and was pleased with the meal. Our server was very good and overall did a fine job. There are better places to get a burger. I may go back and try something else--like a sandwich. After the burger, I'm afraid to spend the money on their higher priced entrees since I may be disappointed.

    Our group met for dinner before the Phillies game. More upscale than any of the other restaurants at XFINITY Live. Everyone at the table enjoyed their burgers and sandwiches. The burgers were fresh, and the fries sprinkled with cheese were delicious. We all shared a desert that was as good as any fine dining restaurant down town. Since I made the reservation on Open Table, our waiter greeted me by name and thanked me for booking through Open Table. Nice touch.

    This Spectrum Grill is a special gem in the craziness of Xfinity Live! It is lively, but a little quieter than the rest of the complex. The food is absolutely delicious! I was there after a Flyers game with my sister. We celebrated her birthday for the second year in a row at Spectrum Grill and look forward to retuning soon. The bar was busy and energetic with everyone watching sports on the TVs. I highly recommend the Spectrum Grill!
