This was my first visit to this restaurant since the pandemic and it was disappointing. A positive was the reservation process. My reservation was located by the restaurant and honored at the reserved time. My party and I (4 people total) were seated immediately. The host staff were friendly and courteous. The table I was seated at was dirty upon further inspection. Other tables in the section I was seated in were also dirty. A few tables remained dirty, with dirty dishes and partially consumed food and beverages, sitting on them, close to the end of my visit. The menus provided were dirty. The server did not arrive at the table until seven minutes and 23 seconds after my party and I were seated. The server was friendly. She explained the service model and took my party's food and beverage order. The beverages ordered (water, two draught beers, two mixed drinks) did not arrive at the table until 13 minutes and 39 seconds after being ordered with the server. Two other tables were seated after my party and received their beverages before my party. The mixed drinks did not have a standard measured shot in them. The crab fries were not hot when they arrived. They were lukewarm and not crisp. The chees sauces were also lukewarm and forming a skin on the top. All other food items were served at the proper temperature. Bread was not included with the mussels ordered. It had to be requested.

Chickie's & Pete's and been a long time favorite of mine, until this visit. Based on this recent visit I would not recommend this restaurant.

It was pretty loud but that was to be expected since the sixers were playing really didn’t bother us much…food was excellent and came out pretty quick even though the place was packed. Will be back.

Fries were cold, we didn’t get our order of mozzarella sticks and I didn’t get a side I asked for. All of our plates came out at different times so we thought the mozza sticks were coming and then never did. Rest of the food was ok

It's a comfortable Sports Bar - we went for lunch before the flower show - seems a strange place for a "ladies lunch" but we were seated in one of the booths and our waitress was very pleasant and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the time spent there.

Another great time at Chickie’s! We needed to add a guest on to our reservation but couldn’t do so through the Open Table app. We called the restaurant and the request was handled right away.

One of the best Sports Bars I’ve been to. I’d like to see a greater variety of IPA’s and dark beers, specifically stouts
Our service was very good but dinner took way too long to arrive.

Overall, the experience was great!
I recommend it highly. Northern DE needs a Chickie & Pete’s!

Tammie was the worse server I’ve ever had at any restaurant. She was rude and aggressive. If I were the manager at chickie’s I would absolutely reevaluate Tammie working there or have her retrained. She should not have any encounter with customers if they want to continue to run a successful business

Food was great, highly recommend the seafood saute (wish they still had the lemoncello seafood special!). Sandwiches are always good, love the seeded rolls, and their pizza is just as good as any pizzeria I've been to. Service is always excellent, thanks to Justin for taking great care of us! Will be back soon!

LOVE their outdoor seating & I hope they keep it even after Covid. Service was ok...a little slow & my crab fries were not hot but after a year of staying home I really didn't care that the fries were just warm. I cant wait to go back. I really like that when I made my reservation that it asks if u want outside dining. Very simple process. I highly recommend 👌

We had such a great night out! We had friends in from upstate New York, and had to bring them to Chickie’s! We were disappointed about the beer towers not being available due to COVID-19, but we understood! Our waitress was friendly and the food was amazing!

Everything was great except checking in for our reservation was very disorganized. In addition - I’m not someone who is fanatical about people wearing masks but if customers have to wear them then the person checking us in for our reservation should at least wear it properly.

Steamers were very, very sandy, and sandwiches were just OK.
Service was fair, at best. We told the server the claims were unedible but she still included them on the bill. I had to request the manager to remove the charge.
Also, the server forgot to bring utensils after she delivered hot food. She said she would be right back but instead stopped at another table to take an order.
We were excited to be out to dinner but were extremely disappointed with the service and food. We won't be back.
