    The staff was polite and friendly but perhaps a little overwhelmed. We were brought to a dirty table and the hostess noticed so she told us to sit at the one next to it, but that one was dirty too. We tried to tell her that it was dirty but the restaurant was so loud that communication was extremely difficult. My boyfriend went back to the hostess desk to alert her, and she apologized and brought us to the third dirty table. At that point she asked which table we would prefer and then she ran to get a rag to wipe it. We say down but couldn’t really have a conversation because the restaurant was just too loud. The server was friendly. We ordered a buffalo chicken cheesesteak, crab cakes and an order of combo fries. The cheesesteak came first, then the crab cakes and then the fries. He loved the cheesesteak but my crab cakes were TERRIBLE. I’ve ordered them a few times in the past and they were great, but that was years ago at another location. This time the crab cakes were more like fritters or something, since there was more filling than crab. I found the whole experience to be very disappointing.

    Food came out to our table randomly, no rhythm to the service and it was not very busy. We kept requesting normal table set up items such as napkins silverware, appetizer plates. Server was not very attentive. Cheeseburger was ordered well done but came out medium. I understand inflation has affected everything, but we essentially had two appetizers, two sandwiches one beer one club soda, final bill was not worthy of service and food quality.

    Food is tasty and hot. Service leaves something to be desired: no smile or greeting from hostess, server didn’t bring us napkins until we were most of the way through our crab fries, and 3 of the 4 of us were nearly done with our meals before the 4th person got his sandwich.

    It's been awhile since we went out 2 dinner at chickies n petes because of covid. I waited until the Phillies were at an away game so that chickies wouldn't be crowded. It was the right amount of people there so that I didn't feel nervous about covid. The service was perfect and the food equally so. I kinda wish we could've eaten outside tho but it was kinda hot so I gave up and went inside instead but once the weather gets cooler I'd like to go back and eat outside.

    I brought my 80 year old cousin who uses a walker and had recently recovered from Covid and asked to be seated away from crowds. The staff were so sweet setting up a table on the floor close to the bathroom and away from others! I really appreciated their kindness and we thoroughly enjoyed the seafood sauté!

    It was horrible, the oysters came out warm and spoiled. The lobster roll was horrible, scraps of lobster, terrible presentation and not tasty and my margarita was like a watered down shot of bar tequila, no flavor at all. I was very disappointed.

    We got seated right away for our reservation only to wait 35 minutes for a waitress to come. We had to go up to the hostess stand to ask for a server to come. When she finally came she was extremely inattentive and on the verge of rude. We continued to wait for simple things like napkins, silverware and even sauces that were suppose to come on the food that did not. It was as if we were bothering her because she had to wait on us. We come to Chickies and Pete’s a lot but the last 2 times have been absolutely awful with service. The franchise raised their prices which I could deal with if the service was better but it just is so had that it doesn’t out way the increase in price point of the food.

    Service was deplorable at the bar. The staff was nice enough but incompetent. The atmosphere at the bar was loud and rowdy. Which is to be expected at a bar. It was a bit excessive. The place looked a bit shabby. Food was very good but it arrived super late. I think they forgot to put the initial order in and instead of admitting it she came up with an excuse . Won’t be back. It’s cool though. I romanticized the place having moved away. Now I can put that to rest. Thanks Chickie and Pete’s!

    Your best bet are the mussels and the underrated thin slice pizza. It remains a mystery why in the heart of South Philly with great Italian bakeries, the restaurant uses mediocre bread for sandwiches and for dipping in the mussels sauce. Patrons are forewarned that the food is served as it comes out of the kitchen--in no particular order. The result is that as is often the case, one or two people in the party are left watching the others eat. The crab fries are famous, but in reality are frozen crinkle cut with bay seasoning. Their popularity is as mysterious as the poor bread that's served. But go for the great mussels and the crispy pizza. Forget about the outrageously priced shell fish. $31.99 for a so-so lobster roll. $91 for a pound and a half of crab legs.
