If you like crabs this is the place to eat. Nothing fancy, down and dirty. Dig in, crack your own and enjoy. DiNardo’s never disappoints. We love coming here for crabs, been eating here for 30 years.
Food was below average especially for such an iconic place. Staff was super friendly especially “blue” one of the waiters. He deserves a serious raise. I would go back to give the food a second chance just because of him. I will say the Crab soup was excellent and the fried calamari was good. My fish entree was a little limp and too much butter grilled shrimp were very over cooked. Love the old school ambiance.
The food was good, the prices are ridiculous $11/$12 per crab, means I Wont be returning. You can get better ambiance and a higher quality of food elsewhere for those type of prices. Dinardos has lost touch with what made it great, great food and reasonable prices are no longer their forte.
This restaurant was over by far the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. The service was slow and couldn’t remember drink orders. The food was small portions for a “family style size”. Fed closer to one person. Example the stuffed mushrooms came out as 4 tiny mushroom maybe the size of a quarter. The crabs legs were priced at $60 a lb for that price I was appalled. Even so I would expect at that price they would be delicious but they were dry and bland. The beer was flat when it finally came out after our meals. Overall this was the worst dinning experience I ever had. I would recommend Red Lobster over dinning here. Terrible. For 5 people the bill was well over $300 for a normal meal. A few appetizers and an entree each. Not a $30 under entree place.
Food was very good. We had the Crab Balls appetizer, sautéed Crab dinner and Broiled Shrimp Stuffed with Crab. However, they don’t offer you bread with the meal.
Go cats. I love jay Wright
Without a doubt DiNardos is one the best for seafood in Center City.
The server barely checked on us. Within an hour and half of being here we saw our server, 4 times and that was all prior to getting food
The overall service was great. Very friendly and customer service devoted staff. I ordered the clam, clams, shrimp and scallops over linguine, ever thing taste good, only thing was some of the she'll mussels were not hot, but appeared fresh. Appetizers were abit pricey given the serving size portions. Given the location i dressed accordingly, but when i got there I felt over dressed giving the atmosphere, but yet comfortable. I would certainly visit again in the near future.
Me and my use to go to Dinardo’s Long time ago, and it was a nice dining place, but on this past Saturday it was not a good experience , will not be going back
