We were going on the tour of the Lincoln Stadium and thought Chickie's & Pete's would be a great place for lunch first. Service was great,friendly staff.We had the Broiled Baby Lobster tales (3 on a plate)($15.95) and the Famous Crab Cake sandwich ($13.95). They both were well seasoned and very good, a siding would have been nice to include with the platters!
We had a blast at our first time visiting this restaurant. One of my friend's lunch was served cold, and the waiter was extremely attentive to this matter. It was taken back and heated up. It still wasn't too hot, but my friend ate most of it anyway. The manager came over and spoke to us about this...and removed the price from our bill. We were not looking for that, but he insisted.Great customer service!
I love chickies mussels in white! however my waitress was rushing us ans when i went to the restroom i came back and she took my unfinished bowl of mussels! i was very upset! i dont eat fast. and just because i was eating slowly doesnt mean i waa finished. terrible service. she never asked me if I needed a water refill. I had nothing to drink half way into the meal.
Great place to meet your friends. Service was outstanding and food was great as well.
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!
Perfection! NFL Playoffs
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!
Delicious as always ! First time at this location. Good service.
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.
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
Great service. Best muscles and sandwiches in town.
Great night great food!
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!
I was there with my family prior to the Bruno Mars concert. I made a reservation and was seating as soon as we arrived. Service was great and the food was very good.
