We decided to try Dinardo's after seeing it in the Visit Philly magazine. We are glad we went. Everyone like their dinners and I thought the stuffed flounder was the best I've had.

312 Race Street dates from at least 1776. Over the centuries it has born the title boards of various establishments. Today the address crowns itself as “Di Nardo’s – Famous Seafood.” But when it comes to vintage history, for those of us of a certain age, a table at Di Nardo’s is a re-creation of a more immediate past.

Wanted seafood and Trip Advisor had this place close by with fairly good reviews. Went on a Wednesday, sat at the bar to eat as it was quite quiet and had the best night eating the recommendations from Mike the barman steamed crab, lump crab cake, shrimp, fries & lovely wine to go with it. Really great good, excellent friendly... More

Great service, excellent food. Would highly recommend! Perfect for families. Very close to the historical sites (near US Mint building).

Dont bother. Plenty of other fish in the sea. Bad soups, mediocre fish, tough crabmeat. And on Saturday night! No excuse. Go to Legal if you want to pay these prices and get your money's worth.

Friendly and very casual wear. The Salmon was fresh and very good. You are not rushed and very accommendating.

Amazingly good steamed crabs. Perfect amount of Old Bay and perfect serving size. Prices were great and it was festive too, since it was New Years Eve. Didn't think you could get crabs this time of year but at DiNaros you can. Really great. Would go back any time.Great service too and delicious onion rings.

I was in Philly for business in December of 2013. Before leaving I did some homework on Trip Advisor for restaurant advice. This place came highly recommended and, after having dinner there, I can see why. It was a little bit of a walk from the Marriott Downtown where we were staying but my traveling partner and I were up... More

The seafood was sooo good here. They had just added crab mac n cheese to the menu and it was absolutely delicious. We told them to make sure to keep it on the menu. The waitress was so helpful at recommendations and so attentive. The main course plates were huge and we ended up taking the leftovers with us. It... More

My experience at DiNardo's began with a blast of warm humid heat coupled with flies that hopped off the fishing lure wall-art. We were seated at a worn in booth with bright red seats. A selling item is the fries and the fish. After ordering from the expensive and limited menu, I was hopeful that the high price would match... More
