I was looking for a seafood/crab restaurant in Northeast Philly and found Chickies & Petes. It is well known in Philly and there are a few locations. Do not be fooled, it is a Sports Bar. There is an extensive craft beer list and a very interesting menu. The cheesesteak nachos were good but definitly overpriced at $14 and lacked... More

It's been a year since I visited Chickie & Pete's on the Boulevard, but I was meeting a friend for lunch and crab fries can be a strong pull. Today I decided to change up from my usual order of seafood and ordered an Italian chicken cutlet. They use cheese sauce instead of slices of cheese which made the bread... More

This place is popular in Philly (and the surrounding area). Any place that serves seafood seems to have a cult following and this place is no different. Being someone who doesn't eat seafood (only crabs and some fish) i can't comment on that type of food but the mussels seem to be really popular. And there are the fries. They... More

Can you say Sports Bar, with Fries sprinkled with old bay! I really don't understand, this is a really crazy place. Made a reservation and when I checked in they said OK we'l let you know when a table is available, waited 20 minutes. Then they gave us a table on the side of the bar one step up on... More

While visiting my son when he was doing his residency in Philadelphia he took me here and I haven't stop going back since. I'm from Massachusetts and even after he graduated two or three of my friends would make this 8 to 9 hour round trip once a month just to have the CRAB FRIES and BLUE CRABS. I wish... More

Went to this place for the first time (also my first time in Philly.) My first impression was how surprised I was at the size of the place. Cool atmosphere, huge tv's and screens all over. I had a bowl of mussels and some crab fries. The food was very good, as was the beer and service. I would go... More

This was my first visit to this establishment. My family and I really enjoyed our food. We had the crab fries which were excellent. The crab cake sandwiches were really good and a nice size. They had plenty of crabmeat in them, no fake stuff. The atmosphere was nice. Service was very attentive to our needs. We went on a... More

The bars are big with an outdoor seating option. Nice all year round. They have some very tasty seafood, but can be pricey.

I came here wanting crabs, but at $18 for three crabs, I decided I'll just wait to go to BlueClaw. Service was good, but for some reason our food was brought out separately, and the wings took forever to come out. Also, the table had a sticky icky feel to it. The roast pork sandwich was okay, but.the flying Hawaiian... More
