Very disappointed in the service. Started at a table outside and after waiting 15-20 min. our waiter finally came over. He tried to start the heater, couldn't, said he'd be back and didn't for another 15 min. Asked him to try and get the heater on again said he'd be back. Finally came back and took our drink order. When the runner came with the drinks the waiter had gotten my wine pour wrong. Then he came back and said the heater was broken, so we moved inside next to the window overlooking the table we had just left. Within 5 min. someone came by and replaced the gas tank on the heater that was supposed to be broken. It went right on.
Our new waitress was very nice but after giving her our order, both the appetizer and main meal came out together, Not good. At this point we just wanted to leave.

There was no soap in the bathroom. I saw a worker just leave before me. Therefore she did not was her hands.

The other bathroom did not have soap either plus there were paper towels and toilet paper all over the floor.

I ordered ahi tuna it was smothered in butter. The menu description did not mention butter.

It was a nice evening to eat outdoors. We eat out often and our opinion is that the experience including food portions especially are not a exceptional value compared to other venues in the area.

We totally enjoyed our anniversary dinner on April 17th. We have dined at Devon in the past and were very happy to be able to come back after such a long wait. Our server was friendly and very acommodating. We look forward to seeing you again.

Worst service I’ve ever experienced - and on my birthday nonetheless.

It started off ok. Got seated quickly. Great view of the park. Ends there. It takes a while for our waiter to come over so we can order food/drinks. It’s Saturday night so we’re patient. We order wine, oysters, mussels and 2 scallop entrees. We ask the waiter for another napkin/utensils since there’s only 1 on the table. Not only does he forget but he goes MIA. Our oysters came out. Great. But we ordered multiple kinds and it would have been nice to know which ones were which. They were just plopped down in front of us. They were delicious so we brushed it off.

Our mussels came out and still our waiter is MIA. My BF and I are sharing a napkin at this point. We’re finally able to flag him down to simply get a napkin/utensils.

30 minutes goes by while we are waiting for our entrees. No one has come to clear our plates. The waiter is again MIA.

Here’s the kicker: he finally comes over to check on us. First time all night. Claps his hands together and goes, hey I’m sorry I guess I haven’t had a chance to check on you guys. Are you ready to wrap things? To which I looked at him like wow, no you haven’t checked on us and it shows. I told him we were still waiting on our entrees. Leaves to go check. Another 10 minutes goes by and he finally comes back and tells us he never put our entrees in! Seriously?! How??

He apologizes but does nothing to try to make things right other than the bare min. of putting our orders in right away. Any decent place in that situation would have at least brought a complimentary glass of wine while we waited. Not here. Just, sorry we’ll put it in now. You know what? NOW we’re ready to wrap it up. Not spending another cent here to be ignored and treated like an afterthought. We left and picked up pizza on our way home. Had hoped for a lovely birthday dinner, maybe take a nice walk in the park. Instead we left hungry and disappointed. So much for a special night.

The server was attentive, & the food fresh & tasty. However, we ordered a scallop dish that was on the daily menu but we got the set menu version rather than the daily special. Also ordered a lobster bisque that was served warm but not hot. Soup should always be served piping hot unless meant to be served cold or at room temperature.

We dined inside and our booth was filthy ( crumbs - and not just a few- were on the booth seat AND remnants of actual food! ) It was clear the booth had not been not cleaned and most likely not sanitized in general. And I cringe to think that no extra measures were taken during this pandemic. I would expect this at Red Lobster ( no offense to RL which I do enjoy once or twice a year) but I did not expect this at Devons Seafood Grill -Philadelphia especially since the menu is does not average Red Lobster prices!

I have dined outside twice with a much better experience and this was my first time dining inside and it was disappointing.
Not to mention the biscuits and calamari were cold, and cloth napkins had food on it.

I have dined her for many years and have noticed a change in the food. The lobster bisque use to be rich and creamy and the crab cakes were the best. I noticed during my last visit the lobster bisque was a bit watery and the crab cakes are down to an appetizer size. Both were not worth the money! The outdoor seating was nice however the tables didn’t appear to be 6 ft apart!

Food was excellent. King crab legs and shrimp Campanella were delicious. Creme Brule was amazing. Good portion size.

Limited drink menu. Prices are too high. Food service was slow. It took over 15 minutes for the waiter to come to our table. By the time appetizer came, he still hadn't brought the rolls. Waiter was inattentive. Overall slow service, but he was polite. There probably weren't enough servers on the floor.

Way overpriced for what you get. Our server, Justin was terrible. We waited almost ten minutes before we ever saw him. I was there with my two sons and I think he thought I wouldn’t tip well so he pretty much ignored us and we all felt disrespected. He made a comment to my sons about being on their phones.
We sat with our plates for over ten minutes after finishing dinner waiting for him to come by. When he finally did he said “do you want anything else”. Yes, actually. We wanted to try dessert since our dinner was not that great.
The crème brûlée was the best thing we had.
Terrible service and the food wasn’t even that good. Will never go back.

Definitely try the biscuit they bring around, that was very tasty. I know it’s a seafood place but the smell of seafood was too much for me. When the food was here it wasn’t bad anymore. But over all the food was great and so was our service. I would visit again for the ambiance, food and the service

Restaurant was very loud.... My date was brought the wrong food and couldn’t order what she asked for because the kitchen was closed. It seemed very under staffed,I noticed my waiter covering a lot of tables other then mine which made it very hard for him to service us in a prompt time. Our Waiter provided great conversation towards the end and apologized about the mix up of our order. Food was cooked thoroughly, but the taste wasn’t to my expectations. I don’t know if I will return to dine in.

Due to the pandemic, I assume the drop in ambiance and food quality is the reason. Our party of four were unanimous in agreement that the meal was under seasoned.

Maybe covid had a huge effect. It has the look and feel of a nice steakhouse but service was very casual and food was just ok.
