“The BEST tasting crab legs!!!!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

You can go to a lot of places with all you can eat crab legs but if taste is what your looking for, go here! First on Wednesday it's all you can eat Crab legs, other days I think it's something like 20 dollars a bowl and the bowl is not that big but the taste is worth it. I just did showboats buffet with all you can eat crab legs and they tasted like water, at Chickies you want to suck the shell! At Chickie and Pete's you can get crab legs done two ways. You can get with seasoning or with out, both are to die for! I have also had a cheese steak, wings and pizza, all good for bar food. Definitely try them out for the crab legs alone. As for atmosphere it's HUGE TV's all playing sports and a mixed crowed. Over all a great place.

“Just the Crabs thanks”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

My honey wanted all you can crabs and we remembered that Chickie's & Pete's had All you can eat snow crabs on Wednesdays. They were fresh, hot and sweet. Our waitress was ontop of it and made sure we had full bowls and fresh beer. The only complaint was the first cup of "butter" was some very salty tasting water with yellow beads on top?? didnt eat it but the others came out full of just butter.

“But, don't expect dessert”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

This was our first experience with Chckie and Pete's. The waitress was very attentive and explain how things worked - fries would come out before the rest of the meal. We had the mussels - both red and white and were both very happy with them - all were open, tender, and clean. Good flavor in the sauce. When it was dessert time, we were informed that the best they could do was a cup if coffee -- so we crossed the parking lot to the grocery store and bought ourselves ice cream to take back to our motel room.

It is a sports bar with lots of tv's and a high noise level, but the acoustics are such that hearing each other and the waitress was not a problem!

“Don't go if you are looking for good food”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

this was my first time ever going to a Chickie & Pete's and I did not find a reason to want to go back.

We met a group of people there for a going away party for a co-worker. Drink orders were taken and delivered very quickly but it was downhill from there. We ordered the famous crab fries, they were not bad nothing to rave about though. Unfortunately after delivering the fries our waitress just disappeared. Having never been here before I was anxious to try something else on the menu but could not find a waitress to take our order. Finally someone from the group was able to flag her down and decided to order several plain pizzas. What was delivered to the table was nothing like any pizza I have ever seen before but perhaps that is their version of pizza. Sorry but it looked like a very thin pizza crust with some crushed canned tomatoes on top and one basil leaf. There was no cheese that I could see unless it was under the pile of crushed tomatoes. Some people scrapped off the crushed tomatoes and just ate the pizza crust. Not very appetizing and very disappointing to look at as well as taste. I asked what everyone else thought about the pizza and not one admitted to liking it. I heard comments like the sauce was too spicy to it was like eating plain pizza dough without the toppings.

Sad to say but we left there and went to Wendy's which is right down the street and had a chicken sandwich and fries.

“Service kills this place....”
Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

If the waitress's would put just as much energy into their tables as they do standing at the back bar talking, it would have been a great night. Thank god we all had a drink before we got their and had some patience to spear. Our waitress with long black hair threw our drinks down and ran away before we could even speak. Then stands around talking? Ugh....another place with bad service. Food was good though.
