Keating's Rope & Anchor Bar and Kitchen Restaurant is located in the Hilton Hotel along the Penn's Landing Waterfront. There is something for everyone on the menu - small plates, salads, sandwiches, and vegetarian options. The portions are reasonable and the pricing is comparable to any restaurant located within a hotel. I truly enjoyed my French onion soup and the salmon BLT sandwich. The service was very good, the food and drinks arrived at a leisurely pace. There were seven people in my lunch group. All of the servers were very gracious handing our numerous requests. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) dining. In the summer, an outdoor meal and viewing the activities along Penn's Landing is delightful. Even sitting inside during the winter and admiring the view of the river is an added benefit to a delicious meal hosted by very professional and friendly employees. If you are in the Penn's Landing neighborhood, and looking for a place for lunch, or just a few drinks, I would very highly recommend Keating's Rope & Anchor Bar and Kitchen Restaurant.

This was a family dinner for my step daughter’s college graduation. The location was very convenient and there was a nice view. We enjoyed the apps, goat cheese fritters and fried calamari. Service was very good and the staff was nice. The dinner entrees weren’t anything special and the one with the spicy shrimp tacos was very heavily fried. Not sure that we would choose to dine here again.

Was unimpressed, and disappointed. The only thing that was decent was the chowder.- and even that was just above luke-warm when it came out. The scallops and shrimp was supposed to come with risotto, it came with what I can only assume was microwaved rice, and then they covered the whole thing in sprinkled parsley. Shrimp had an okay flavor. Overall it had no flavor profile at all. Was just stuff on a plate, covered in parsley.

Based on this experience i would not recommend for dining. The atmosphere was nice, so if you went to sit at the bar, you’re fine, but definitely would not recommend eating a main course there.

Service was okay. Was not busy but felt like a bother to the waiter. The hostess was nice and pleasant, and greeted me promptly.

Overall 2/5 from me.
