Sorry this is great sports bar but I am Jack drinker and they had Jack Fire which is first time I had so I was quit excited. Friends had some crabs and we had some good times with friends.

I agree with the previous comment. The best lobster roll I have ever had! I would love to find a recipe for it. If you are skeptical, or if, like me, you don't like a mayonnaise based seafood salad, this one is more of an oil and vinegar base. Nice crunch with the veggies in it, and large chunks of... More

The crab fries and sauce are AWESOME!! Drinks are good, nice selection of both non-alcoholic and alcoholic thirst quenchers. What would have made this review Excellent would have been if the food were seasoned while it was being prepped. Both my husband's steak sandwich and my burger were underwhelming. I was surprised because the fries are seasoned so well. The... More

Cheesesteaks aren't the only things Philly is known for --- If you are going to be in the city, you have to stop at Chickie's and Pete's for their CRAB FRIES! So good!

I have been to Chickie's & Pete's a few times before this last visit, August 2nd, with friends from work and other family members. My daughter's and I met up with my sister and her family before a Billy Joel concert at Citizens Bank Park. We arrived and used their valet service which is less than the venue parking and... More

We were down at an event at Wells Fargo center, and decided to visit Chickie & Pete’s rather than buying the crab fries at the center. We have had the fries many times at sporting events, but have never visited the actual restaurant. It was a Saturday afternoon, so no problem getting a table. Waitress was friendly, although given it... More

Fairly typical sports bar, a local chain operation distinguished by its' emphasis on steamed blue crabs and crab fries and its devotion to local sports teams. Local sports radio shows often broadcast there.

I came here because the hotel concierge recommended their burgers and he was right! I had an awesome ultimate tailgate which was a crab cake on top of a burger- it was phenomenal. I also tried the house specialty crab fries. I now remember why I don't dine in sport bars- too loud. The music, flashing lights and loud patrons... More

One of my favorite sports bars in the world! Fantastic crab legs. And, the crab fries are a must! Atmosphere is second to none!

Chickie's and Pete's was a late night stop after a Phillies game. The Crabfries are the signature item, and yes, they are great. The food was good as well, the service was quick, and the restaurant/bar was huge. It's an easy walk from the stadium complex, or there's a shuttle that will bring you there. The prices were good too.... More
