Chickie's & Pete's South Philadelphia Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was not prepared at all for the MLK lunch crowd with a 76ers home game at 1:00. The waiter apologized before taking out orders and said he could not guarantee how long it would take. The restaurant was only about 1/4 full. All four lunches came out separately over the course of 3/4 of an hour. The first person was done before the second person even received their meal. Food was fair at best. There is always a 76ers 1:00 home game on MLK!
Chicken noodle soup was cold & super bland, clam chowder was boiling hot & bland, nachos were pretty good but disappointed the crab was cold & simply thrown on top. Service was ok..waitress in our section wasn't checking on anyone in her section fast enough or enough at all. Noticed 2 other table with the "where is our waitress look". But when present she was very nice.
Food was delicious! Server( female, name stared with a G) lacked in the communication area of things when the kitchen was backed up( never told us just left us hanging wondering where the meals were). People from my group had to hunt server down to get my water I ordered after she brought everyone but me their drinks and had come to the table twice after that with no water. Other group member ordered his meal first ( when we ordered appetizers) and never got it until the rest of the group was done eating and told the server to cancel it. Server had a bit of not my fault attitude about him being upset. We were charged for things we didn’t order but was served to our table. But we ate it anyways so we didn’t complain about that one :) but heads up on possibly getting a double order of crab fries you didn’t order coming to your table. Manager was great in dealing with the issue that was reported .. server... not so much! Crab nachos are to die for as well as the lobster Philly cheesesteak! And of course the crab fries are a must order item!
Situated just north of the sports complex on Packer Ave. if you are staying at the holiday inn down the road it’s a $6 Uber/Lyft or a 15 minute stroll. Nice to walk, large sidewalks well lit, didn’t feel threatened at all.
We booked ahead for 8pm using open table for a Saturday night. Good job we did as there was a long line of people waiting for tables, but this was probably because there was a home Eagles game on the next day. We were seated straight away at a very small table for 2 by the window.
Why restaurants keep insisting on offering these is beyond me. We had to clear the adverting buff and the condiments off the table just to get some room.
Our waiter arrived in about 2 minutes and took our drink order, no water was offered and you don’t get a bread basket, but they do try and push some of their “world famous” crab fries on you. (Don’t know where outside of Philly would have heard of them seeing as they only have e branches in the city , one at the stadium and one at the airport)
We ordered the gloriously messy shellfish combo ($40),lots of snow and dungeness crap,shrimp, and lobster tail. You would never eat this on your own but the waiter asked if we were having one each! Hey, and let’s try these famous fries.
Now this pot of shellfish is really messy, there is a kinda broth that it sits in, but you are not offered a water bowl,wet wipes,or a bib. The food arrived after about 30 minutes and was delicious,except for these fries,they come with 2 cheese dips and a weird quite tangy if not hot coating on them. Not to my taste.
The waiter was quite good at coming over and checking on us, but when we had finished and he cleared up there was quite a substantial mess on the table, he made no effort to clear it up so I went over to their station and got some cloths myself.
We had the pumpkin desert which was huge, do not order more than one of these bad boys.
The bill was quite hefty I suppose, $100 including tip
We very much enjoyed ourselves on our recent visit; however, the noise level is way too high. Between the active sports crowd, multiple TVs going on simultaneously and background rock music, it was noise overload making it hard to hear the conversation at our table. The food was good. Service was also good.
I was disappointed with this Chickie's & Pete's visit. We've been here numerous times. We ordered their crab fries (which they are know for) and they were barely seasoned. The waitress let us know that the restaurant has gotten complaints about the fries being overly seasoned. We complained because they were barely seasoned and barely warm! The waitress only offered to bring out more seasoning. For the price of the fries, it should of been a no brainer-- take the fries back and give us a well seasoned hot batch of fries! Also, we ordered cocktails The chocolate martinis were so strong (not a bad thing), but it barely tasted like chocolate!
We went to C & P's to celebrate a teen's birthday. We arrived on time at 4 pm and were seated promptly. We were waited on almost 15 minutes later, nobody came by in the interim. Once our order was placed the fries showed up 5 minutes later, first entree showed up about 10 minutes after that, the second about 10 minutes after that, the third about 5 minutes after that and the fourth another 10 minutes later. The fourth was a meatball parm sandwich, I can't imagine why it would take 40 minutes to deliver such a simple sandwich. No explanation was given. The refills did show up as they were by to deliver each item and it was then easy to find a server. We normally eat our meals in under one hour from arrival. By looking at the receipt I discovered it took us one hour and 40 minutes. I am so glad we weren't in a hurry. It didn't take long to pay the bill. One of our party is going out with a group next week and this was an option, not any more.
I brought 3 people with me that have never been before. It was my nieces 12th wedding anniversary and my boyfriends 60th birthday. They were very excited with there experience. We all had a good time, the food and service exceeded our expectation. Thank you
We had 12 come to hear my son's band "Somerville" for MGK's house band contest. Everything was great, drinks were awesome, food seasoned just right, service (our waitress was the best), the music was great and the best was they won the semi-finals round!!! A really fun time was had by all! Thanks for a great night out.
Large state of the art sports bar. Good menu choices, although a bit pricey. Lots of big TV's easy walk to all of the stadiums, but not adjacent, great spot to watch tv sports like golf or baseball. Fun atmosphere. We were in town for a Brewers game. Recommended by some guys from Philly. Not disappointed.
The service, staff and food were GREAT! The only issue I had was that my reservation was not listed. I was a bit confused. However, it all worked out anyway because of the time of day we went. Our waitress was so kind, patient and very attentive. It was my first visit to that location and I will be returning in the future.
We picked this location because it has onsite parking. The food is good, though a couple of more healthy options on the menu would be great. Our group was friends who had not seen each other for a while so we knew we would be sitting for a bit. Service was excellent, though we felt somewhat rushed. We did like the amount of space between tables. Overall, it was a great choice.
