My kid’s cheesesteak didn’t arrive until after the rest of our party had finished eating. It’s a cheesesteak in Philadelphia, so should never be a problem. I ordered ultimate burger. Crab cake on a burger sounds good, but half burger was well done and half medium rare.

It was so,loud you couldn’t hold a conversation, the ac was leaking on customers. Half of our table received their food and were just about finished by the time the rest of us were served. I asked for pickles on my cheesesteak and got 2 pickle chips UNDER my sandwich. My roll was sliced through so the cheesesteak fell all over while I was trying to eat it and it’s flavor was mediocre at best. Our waitress was friendly and helpful but the kitchen was extremely slow.

This is one of the Chickie & Petes in and around the city - great place to watch sports, grab a drink and have crab fries and chicken tenders. We had wings and the crab dip special they were good. Unfortunately, there was only one game on baseball which I am not a fan of but it was a great spot for after a movie.

Last minute dinner with friends. Was able to get a reservation and when we arrived we were given great attention and immediately taken to a fantastic table! Waitress was friendly, food was as expected. Consistently delicious. When you crave muscles in red sauce or crab fries ....have to go to C&P

Been to Chickie & Pete's several times in the past with great results. Not this time! Steak sandwich meat was dry and chewy. One guest had crab cake delivered with a spicy sauce, asked for tartar sauce and was told that do not have it! Really, a restaurant that serves seafood and dies not have tartar sauce!! No rush to return to this location.

Our server Sean was amazing at his job! He did not need to write down anything for our group of 6, he got all the orders correct and everything was out in a timely manner. We had fun playing the song bingo on Tuesday night. Sean told us a funny story about Sweet Caroline and had us all cracking up laughing. My grandparents are needy and love good food and they had a great time out for my brother's birthday.

Been to Chickie & Pete's quite often but normally in South Philly. This is only second time at this location. I did not get a good feeling about the place from meeting the hostesses. Even though I had a reservation and place was only half full they seemed "bothered" to have to work. put us at a table for 4 that was so close to another one could only get in and out from 1 side. Waitress never put a smile on her face. Wife had Snow Crabs which were good but did not receive a "Crab Fork" to help remove crab. Friend had a salad. Other friend had the seafood bisque which only had 3 pieces of seafood in it and was way too watery. I had the meatball parm which I expected on a steak roll. Was very small and only 2 meatballs in the sandwich. The crab fries were not "crabby". Found out all the seasoning was in the bottom of the bowl. Not the greatest visit. I will not go back to that location again

We had a 7pm reservation and we weren't seated until 7:30pm! They forgot that we checked in - twice! The older blonde woman with tons of makeup on acted like she couldn't care less when I asked about our table. No eye contact at all. The whole check in area is chaos. When we were finally shown to a table I can clearly see 4 or 5 empty tables - we could've been sat sooner! Why did I even bother to make a reservation?! Get it together, Chickies!

Went on a Saturday night. Wasn't too crowded, but our waitress had too many tables. We waited for drinks way too long. Four dinners ordered and they all came out at different times by different people. I ordered a meatball parm and actually laughed when it was put in front of me. It was a small roll with two meatballs. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but nowhere on the menu did it indicate the size. Oh well, lesson learned.

This had to be one of the most horrible dining experiences I have ever had.

First it took forever for the Crab fries to come out. And they where warm at best.

Second, our dinner was brought to us in a to-go bag. I was like really. They took the bag back into the kitchen and 10 mins later the same food, only cold was brought to the table. Then they took the food back to the kitchen and brought it out now a third time. And colder. After being told they where remaking the food.

We than asked for the manager, who came out and seemed annoyed, told us they where remaking the food for the third time.

At this point we had been there for over 45 mins and only had Crab Fries.

We told the manager we just wanted to go.

Absolutely a horrible experience on every level.

We had reservation on Thursday March 9, 2017, for 7 people at 7 pm on all you can eat crab night. They are always busy but since it was all you can eat it was even busier than usual. We all arrived in the parking lot at the same time. Four of us went in while the others parked so we could let them know we had arrived. Upon checking in we were told they were getting our table ready and we would be seated in a couple of minutes. The rest of our party parked and came in. After about a 20 minute wait we went back up to the counter to inquire about our table. The gentleman was extremly rude to us. He said he didn't see any reservation. We told him that we had been standing there waiting for the table they said they were preparing for over 15 mins and he said impossible because he had been there over 15 mins and did not know what we were talking about. We pulled out our reservation confirmation on our cell phone and showed him that yes we do have a reservation. We waited another 10 mins while they scrambled to find and get a table ready for us and said that they would "take care of us". Once we did finally get seated and placed our order we then had to wait even longer since the kitchen was backed up due to the volume. This was supposed to be a nice family dinner for a birthday celebration. Instead it was an expensive disaster. The only saving grace for them that night was our waitress who was very attentive and apologetic. We used to always enjoy our visits/meals at Chickies and Petes but this last one has literally left a bad taste in our mouths.

Reserved table for 12 for 730pm, but wasn't seated until 8. Service afterwards, however, was wonderful. Food came out as they were ready, which was fine. Food, was not as good. Had fried shrimp, tasted great, boneless buffalo wings were forgettable, chicken signature salad was not appetizing at all. Overall, the price did not match the experience. Our server was the only saving grace of our experience.

Apparently when we made the reservation through Open Table the computer assigned us a table. We've been here many times before --- when we told the host & hostess that we preferred a different table, they were confused. We spent the next 10mins waiting at the desk while they literally hid behind the podium trying to figure out how to override the computer.

The restaurant was no way near busy -- plenty of empty tables

We waited an hour with our reservation. We were a larger party (7)but the staff were not in touch with us at all during the time we waited about trying to accommodate us or trying to put together tables to fit us. That lack of communication is why I will never dine here again. I understand delays, but that was unnecessary.

I was not happy this time. I am usually very happy at this location but this time we were crammed into a makeshift seating arrangement in the very tight fitting back room. The servers had a hard time serving the food and forget having to get up for any reason. It was not the birthday celebration that I anticipated for my sister. I thought with the open table reservation that we would have had a table ready for us.

Less fun than when I was younger. Many odd things that make dining here with a full family ranging from 5 years old to 79 less than ideal, but food was good and we were able to get in on a Saturday night, so was glad they were an option on Open Table. When we arrived, they told us we'd have to wait 15 minutes for a table that wasn't on a platform (which wouldn't have been a great fit for MIL who uses oxygen and a walker). Most of the seating is up steps or on a raised platform or at high tops with bar stools. Welcome desk is strangely placed up high, so you can't look directly at the folks who are there to greet you, and its so loud and so many people in that area, it took 5 minutes for them to actually get my name and tell me when we'd be seated. There is no seating inside while waiting, well, 2 small benches in the vestibule, but nowhere good for more than 2 to 4 people who need to sit while waiting, though there are 2 benches outside which worked since the weather was decent. Its fun, and tasty, but nothing special now that they have been around for so long and have made such a crazy stink about suing over other restaurants calling their fries crab fries, as if they honestly invented the concept.
