Food was very good. One person’s food came somewhat late; other person had completed 1/2 of their meal when it came. Waiter was apologetic. Other than that it was a good first time experience.

Gave it 3 stars because the food really was terrific. I waited 50 minutes for my crab legs though! My friends' shrimp came and she finished eating and still another 20+ minutes before my entree arrived. At NO point during this time did our waitress come to check on us. Waited another 10 minutes for the check...horribly noisy inside, but the music was good - just having 60 people talk OVER the music is too much.

4 adults and 1 high chair. The hostess sat us at a booth (we did not request a certain table), and put the high chair on the end. We ordered our drinks, apps and dinner. We received our drinks. A manager came over and said “we can’t have a high chair on the end of a booth. You need to move to a table”. No apology. We happily moved.

Our apps came out. No plates or silverware. By the time plates came out, our apps were cold. No refilling our drinks. Still no silverware.

Our dinner came out cold.

Sad experience.

Great service from the hostess finding us the right table to the server making sure our drinks were alway full! Fabulous food with huge portions at reasonable prices! Love the crab cake sandwich, cheesesteak, fries and cold shrimp appetizer! Will definitely be back!

Had a nice Mother’s Day dinner with my mom, sister, and grandma. The food was delicious and came out in proper order. Waitress was a little stressed out due to how busy they were and how many tables she was serving. Towards the end she was forgetting items such as the check and boxes but she made up for it because she was so kind and sweet.

This was our first time dining here. So, we didn’t know what to expect. We chose to dine indoors since the weather wasn’t ideal for outdoor dining. The tables were kept apart for social distancing and there were QR codes on the tables to scan to view the menu. My husband and I really enjoyed our bowls of soup. He had the Seafood Chowder and I had the New England Clam Chowder. As an entree, we both had the Seafood Sauté in the white sauce. It was so delicious! We will be back to try some other menu items. I was just in the mood for seafood since it was Mother’s Day. Overall, we had a good time and our server, Sarah, was especially friendly and kind.

Table was dirty when were seated, sat in area where darts are played, wall next to table was filthy with pictures that haven’t been wiped in 10 years! Absolutely disgusting sitting next to that while eating. waitress was awful, disappearing for long periods of time , had to wait forever every time we needed something! Even the check!

Made 7 pm reservations for indoor seating. Got there 10 minutes early, figured we would be waiting a few minutes. Got there and they said they only had outdoor available, indoor would be another 30-40 minute wait. Even with reservations. Not cool. We ended up waiting for the indoor seating. Missed the start of the 7 pm game.

My wife and son ordered cooked shrimp. They come in a broth but are unpeeled. How are you suppose to peel shrimp in a hot broth?
The shrimp were the most overcooked shrimp I have ever tasted.
I said something to our waiter who replied “ They cook them and then reheat them in the broth so they get over cooked”. I should have sent both meals back. The waiter, knowing they would be bad offered nothing.

There food is very good. My only frustration is when you order your burger well and it’s very red. Check, check, check before you serve.

Our waitress was outstanding!
Food was good and quick. I've been a customer for so very long now - I lived near the original C&P at Levick and Frankford Ave in Philly and have been coming there for a long time. This time I noticed that the size of items is definitely getting smaller (still exellent!), but prices are increasing. I know that's the nature of the beast and you have to increase to stay alive ~ for 3 of us with sandwiches (no dinners) and drinks it was $90. I think that's a little pricey personally!

Food was very good but service not great. Asked for water twice and never came. Server dropped a lobster tail on the floor from the dish and never replaced it! When mentioned to waitress, she just said “sorry” with no offer to take anything off the bill. Not cool . . .

Had a 6pm open table reserved time. Sat down at 6:35. Had calamari which was good , crab fries , classic cheese steak and shrimp tacos. Everything took a while. Service while attentive was gone for a spell. I’m sure the restaurant was understaffed. Everything was fine except the shrimp tacos. Soooo much salt. You couldn’t even eat it. In fairness I didn’t complain. Figured at that time it wouldn’t to any good. Would I go back. Sure I would. This is my review

Honestly Chickies Bordentown is always awesome. The staff is attentive and accurate and they are nice. We say thank you and chat with the servers and our server was excellent. She got refills fast and was polite as well. We have had Kaylin Amanda and Daria and they were all awesome! Being approachable and kind when asked for refills, sauces, changes or special requests with food or drink orders goes a long way and that’s what Chickie’s and Pete’s has always delivered. We saw the manager on the floor the entire shift and time we were there and the hostess was welcoming when we arrived. Kaylin visited and said hello and it out a personal touch to the service! We will be returning again soon ! Thanks guys!

PS: the food staff and cooks need love too they make consistent hot and delicious crab fries and I never feel like it’s the end of the batch or scrap crab fries with each basket. The snow crab is fresh and also the crab Mac and cheese balls are always great. Keep up the great work!

The service was fine considering we were an 8 person table with one waiter, the food wasn’t really that great for the money. I ordered a few of the French fry appetizers for the table that were pretty good, I had the Seafood Sauté with white sauce which was pretty bland and a shellfish chowder which was also not very good and had unpeeled shrimp in it which was weird for a chowder; menu says it’s spicy, it wasn’t at all. The misses got the crab cake sandwich and said it was good so we may give it another shot one day.

Service was EXTREMELY slow. We waited approximately 20 minutes just for our drinks and it wasn't busy in the restaurant at all. And the drinks were terrible. The Pineapple Whiskey Sour tasted like straight pineapple juice, and the Old Fashioned was more than disappointing. The waitress was polite and professional but she forgot to bring things more than once. The food quality was absolutely horrendous. The shrimp po boy needs to be taken off of the menu! The shrimp were mushy and lacked flavor; the best part of the sandwich was the bread. The quality of food definitely wasn't worth the money. It's obvious the restaurant is solely surviving on its name and their extra salty crab fries. I most certainly will not be going back!
