Our menu features modern American fare including the freshest seafood, steaks, and sushi. Paired with seasonal craft cocktails, canned beer, and an extensive wine list.

    Moshulu is a legendary ship over a century old with rich history of sailing the world as a trading vessel to now being an award winning, AAA 4 Diamond rated restaurant nestled in Penns Landing on the Delaware River. If that isn't impressive enough the ambiance and dining experience, including beautiful vistas will surely captivate your senses. Everything was perfect!

    Well, your pricing, City or otherwise, is far too high to attract regular attendance for dining. This will be a real problem moving into a downward market, and I suggest you revisit this exposure. Secondly, slovenly dressed persons ( tee shirts, essence of marijuana, stripper clothes) diminishes the experience. Parents with out of control children should be asked to leave. The "ship'' is a unique structure to Philadelphia, and it is incumbent on the management to hold standards and rates that make sense and ensure repeat customers. I have been to the Moshulu many times over the decades. I would like to wholly recommend at this time, but I am not in the habit of over-exaggeration. Help yourselves to a better future, not declining one.

    So disappointing… the only saving grace for the Moshulu is the outdoor seating. From having to send back our drinks to our noodle salad drenched in the dressing to bus staff continually coming by to clear our still full plates to the final clearer taking classes with her cell phone between her ear and shoulder chatting away. What a mess!!!

    I visited years ago. At that time Moshulu was more elegant. This time it was much more casual and food was subpar for the price. Service was good and friendly, though less formal than in previous years. I'd be back for the deck and music but the food wouldn't draw me back.

    We had reservations and still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated and there were plenty of open tables. They seated us by a window, like we asked and then made us move to another table away from the window. Our server was very nice and somewhat attentive. Our meals were decent, but very overpriced. My mom didn’t even eat her chicken. She said it was dry. Would never go back.

    The dinner was for my mothers birthday, she has been wanting to go to this place since COVID. And it has always been reservation and we can’t get a reservation. I finally landed one for her birthday and drove 2 hours to make it to this location and was not disappointed. Our waiter/server Michael T, was Amazing, great service on his end. From explaining what the foods were to what was in it to quantity he was just plain great even w a lot of tables to take care of he was very attentive. the food was also good. the prices were a bit extreme you are paying for location basically but over all the food was also good but again over priced. how ever it was a nice experience and nice scenery. My moms birthday dinner was a success. Thank you to open table for managing reservation and thank you to Moshulu staff for making a great experience.

    We've been going to the Moshulu since 1984 and this was the first time that we were dissatisfied. We weren't given a wine list, and ordered a variety that wasn't available. Our waitress brought the completely wrong wine and didn't know it was wrong. Then dissapeared for 20+ minutes before she asked if she could bring something else. Another drink we ordered was watered down. We weren't given any napkins with our drinks, and our water glasses sweat so much we had to take a napkin from another table to stop the water from drenching my husband. The menu has been curtailed and no longer has the selection it used to. Only one beef choice. Our meals did come out timely but we weren't asked how everything was until we were half done. Then I tried to order Port for dessert was told after another 20 minutes they didn't have anything in stock, in the meantime everyone else was eating their desserts. Our experience at Moshulu this time was less than expected yet the cost was the same. I'm not sure we'll go back. This is a yearly tradition for us, and it was sub-par.

    Food was very good but was expecting more at those prices. Service was poor and waitress was gone for long periods including 20 minutes after she left the check. She barely made eye contact. We looked like a typical tourist family and definitely made to feel like we didn’t belong there

    Went for a quiet Sunday dinner. Was greeted by the cast of Jersey Shore throwing a party on the deck with obnoxiously loud music. Apparently there’s some kind of brunch thing they do that lasts all day and they don’t cut anyone off at the bar. My girlfriend went to use the restroom on the upper deck and as I was waiting on her, two women from a private event almost got in a drunken fight at the top of the stairs. It was ridiculous watching a bunch of drunk 20-something’s stumble around. Also, our server just wasn’t great. She was nice enough, but just overall aloof. No silverware, never asked us if we needed drink refills (we had to flag her down), etc etc. Overall, just a bummer when we were expecting a somewhat romantic dinner at an upscale restaurant.

    A lot of restaurants in amazing venues like this treat the restaurant as an afterthought. Moshulu is a fantastic restaurant in its own right -- the food we ordered was phenomenal; the staff were friendly, professional, and accommodating; and the ship itself is beautiful and well maintained. It exceeded all of our expectations and did all of this at a price point that is in line with, or less expensive, than a lot of big-name restaurants. Could not have been happier with everything about the night.

    I think the concept is better than the actual restaurant. They wouldn't seat us outside on the ship deck, despite the fact that I made a reservation days before we went and requested to be outside. Also, the shrimp cocktail appetizer was $22 and you only get 3 shrimp. You cant even really share that- we ended up having to cut a shrimp in half. Our server was very nice and she did a great job, but overall the experience was disappointing. We ended up not eating dinner there and going somewhere else.

    Singularly the worst Bloody Mary I have ever tasted- pepper water and a little tomato juice. Mostly water. Our mimosas were warm. The bar work ruined a otherwise fine brunch. And I am bewildered that at 10 am we were not allowed to sit at a 6 top table - there were 4 of us- because it was " reserved" but 2 hours later there was only one other table seated.

    Expect to take 3 hours here, service was extremely slow, we ordered everything right away too, the language of the bar staff was horrible, they were cursing every other swear word, and the bartender was very rude to several customers, not very profesional, very expensive for what you get, bill was over $300 for 3 people, I even had a burger, mainly mad about the service, barely filled up water, never checked in on us, and they had lots of staff as well, will not be returning and did nothing for a birthday

    I want to like it here, I truly do. But for the third time in the last two years… the food was just ok, the service was attentive at first then all but basically disappeared to the point I had to wave over the waiter to place our order. Over all the it was a $250 (with tip) ho hum dinner. I’m out of hoping for better and the wow and just moving on.

    We have dined here many times, which is why we decided to return for Father’s Day. We were escorted to an outside table on the lower deck, which was very slanted. The tables were literally on a tilt. A few patrons seated after us got up and went inside for their dining experiences. However, we stayed since we wanted to enjoy the outdoors. Our server was attentive. He took our drink and food order within a few minutes after we were seated. We ordered the beef dumpling appetizer, shrimp & pork belly entree, salmon entree with a side of mac n cheese, and fingerling potatoes. The food was decent, but all served luke warm. I mean, everything was room temperature. Not sure why, but that’s the way everything came out. After we wrapped up dinner, we went upstairs to the upper deck to enjoy the views and drinks. I went to the bar to try and order 2 drinks. There was a group of people standing off to the right of the bar. Three members were ordering drinks when I walked up. Another 2 came over to the bar and ordered drinks as I stood there waiting. They didn’t care that other people were there before them as they skipped the waiting period to order their 2/3 drinks a piece. There was one bartender trying to make drinks for everyone. I waited 15 mins for 2 drinks. It was a complete mess. We finished those drinks and got out of dodge quickly. Not sure if we will return for another Moshulu visit anytime soon.
