Chickie's & Pete's - Drexel Hill
Waitress was training new staff and her energy started off great but decreased as the night went on. My date asked to see the desert menu and she completely forgot to bring it.
Our server was great, genuinely friendly, checked in regularly and helpful with the menu. Food was hot but I have had better. I wasnted seafood and found the crab cake to be average and my sandwich fell apart to the point I had to eat it with a fork. I love mussels but the were the worse I ever had, I like the spicy kick they had but they were still pretty bland and gritty. My drink was watered down, not flavorful and I doubt it was an honest pour of whiskey in it. I made the most of outing and left a 20% tip. My first and last time going to a C&P
Great place to eat. A bit noisy, but the food was good and the staff friendly and helpful!!!
My waitress Cassandra was very sweet and helpful. I had an amazing time!
They never seem to honor request for seating. They ignore any request that are in system. The other restaurants try to accommodate request and if they can’t they will at least let you know. The Drexel Hill host are rude and don’t know how to make you feel welcome.
Our experience was absolutely wonderful. The staff were accommodating and the food was excellent!!!
I always enjoy myself here! Friday nite I never had an experience like this, the waitress said she was ready to go home and she was waiting for us to close her bill.
Waitress Kelsey is very rude and unfriendly. She ruined our meal with her attitude. Turned a great day into a horrible night.
I've been here before and the food was WAY better. I got the chicken sandwich and it was so dry it was practically inedible.
Overall good experience. Didn’t enjoy crab cakes. But that’s always a hit or miss anywhere.
None of the three employees at the host stand smiled or seemed to like their jobs at all. They clearly didn't like their manager because I saw numerous eye rolls when he would give them a request. You've clearly got the wrong people in service positions.
The food came out in the wrong order. One of our diners didn't get her entrée until after everyone else had finished their meals. The silverware was dirty and we had to request new pieces. The server never removed one empty appetizer plate or empty glass until we handed it to her to take it away. I like the food here but the service has been terrible every time we come. Disappointing.
The service tonight was terrible. First, we ordered roast beef sandwiches and were served pork, so we had to wait to get new sandwiches. The cheese sauce on the sandwiches tasted off...it definitely had a grainy texture and almost tasted like it was spoiled or on the verge of being that way. I could barely eat it but I couldn’t send it back a second time because I couldn’t stay there all night with a two year old. Also, we ordered chicken fingers which came out after we got our remade sandwiches because they were never rung in the first time.
The waitress was friendly but it just seemed like an off night across the board. It’ll take some convincing to come back to this location anytime soon.
Like this place great mussels will go again
Had a great time watching Villanova win. Our waitress, Julia, was the best!
Everything was wonderful!!
The hostess at the front desk you need people with restaurant experience. They can not handle seating people on nights when it’s fight night and you can’t make reservations. It use to be one of my favorite sports bar to go to. It was such bad service last Saturday night I had to leave and go elsewhere not sure if I would return again. Front desk very rude young inexperienced help.
Very Good - all went well !!
When you order a few courses, they bring to table all at once. I asked why????? They stated when it is ready it is delivered to table. All at once we were served with u peel shrimp, soup, crab cakes, salad, and pizza.
Ridiculous!!!!!! The way they do it!!!!!!
There was a wait but with open table we sat right down. They were crowded, but our waitress was taking it in stride and was fabulous! Great food and fast service!
We sat right away. We were surprised for a Saturday night. Great service very friendly.
Good experience, except that we asked for a booth and when we arrived they did not have it. We waited about 20 minutes and finally the manager accommodated us at a booth that was supposed to be for a larger party. We were able to watch the fight and had a good seat.
Had a relaxing meal and good conversation. Food was delicious.
Everything was good - service was great - food was good - little loud but not bad !
Very disappointed. Everything is a la carte, but you cannot order a vegetable or a starch, other than fries. Asked about the soups. Was told that they were not made in house. Ordered crab nachos. They were served with cold crab meat. We each ordered king crab legs (which came with nothing else). They were water logged. The shells were so soft and rubbery that they could not be cracked, as they kept bending. I believe that these were pre-cooked and frozen. Then they were heated in a microwave. Terrible meal that came to $80. Never again.
We order a Philly cheesesteak, but they forgot to put any steak on the sandwich. There was only a sliver of meat and 90% roll. They had the audacity to charge $9 for this bready meatless sandwich!
I enjoy the seafood at Chickie's and Pete's but the extensive beer list and sports on several big screens could be reason enough to pay it a visit. The service is a little chaotic the meals did not come out together making it awkward for the person dining while the rest of us waited several more minutes to receive our food. They didn't have the white wine my wife ordered. How do you run out of Pinot Grigio? The mussels I ordered were excellent and plentiful but served without bread. Ah, the meal would have been perfect if only for some nice crusty French bread.
Sister-in-law on business from out of town
Ordered French fries, huge quantity and great taste!
Crab legs not as good as they should have been! They were cold & bland, had to ask for dipping butter which was also bland. Servers didn't seem to have a good system for how to know which order belonged to which table.
! Waitress was great !!
Food was good ! A little loud but it was a table of guys who I though had a little to much to drink .!!
Our waitress was Andrea she was amazing. My husband and I decided to do our date night there, I had heard so much about the Fries but I was a little disappointed because they were too salty and just not what I expected. The Sweet Potato Fries were ok.
Not one of my favorite anymore. I feel the chicken wings are getting smaller. Service only okay. Food just average. Probably this was my last visit.
We have this chickie and petes a second try. Big waste of time. Crab fries were the only enjoyable part of our meal. I had chicken cutlet sandwich. It was deep fried chicken with honey mustard dressing drizzled on top. Supposed to have cheese, there wasn't any.
Boyfriend had roast beef sandwich. Terrible. Not hot, thin sliced similar to lunch meat. It wasn't the way a hot roast beef should be served.
It was 1/4 full of patrons at 6:15 which is sad on a beautiful night. We won't be returning again ever. We have it a 2nd shot and wasted our time. In and out of there in 15 minutes!
I went to Chickie's and Pete's for Mothers Day. The ambience was great and the food was wonderful. My sons really gave me a great Mothers Day meal, the grandchildren were there and it was a great way to spend some time with them. Great place, great service and great location!
It was very good and whenever we go there the people are very nice and friendly !!
Food and service was good. One thing is that it was difficult to get into the parking lot from the direction we were driving. Can't turn left into lot. Turned left at light and thought could just make a right into lot. Nope. Can't do that. Drive around a circle go into lot with other stores. Ok lot is fenced off. Try to get out of lot so I can make a right into chickies. Nope. Can't exit this way. Go out the way I came in go down a couple blocks. Make a right on street th hat will get me there. Nonstop traffic and parked cars blocking your view. Finally able to get on street to make a right into chickies. Looked online for a better way next time.
Waitress was awesome!
Waitress was not friendly ... at times seemed annoyed at every question asked. Crabs were small and more expensive then usual (3/22 not 3/17)
The south philly location is better.
My son loves the crabs and crab fries so I reserved a 6 person seating for his birthday. We were seated right away but our server was rude and we had to remind her several times for our food requests. First time in decades I've left less than 20% tip. I doubt I would return.
