Great food and amazing setting! Great place for a special night out! The seafood dishes were amazing and they have a yummy cheese and cured meat plate.

This unique restaurant/4 masted ship provided us with the most enjoyable evening of delicious food and lively entertainment. We were part of a large group dining there and the service was impeccable. The salmon that we ordered was cooked perfectly, as was the accompanied dishes.
We were celebrating an anniversary, along with another couple in our group; and our dessert arrived with a candle and "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate. Nice touch! Both couples were invited onto the dance floor for a special anniversary dance. We really enjoyed our special evening. This is a place not to be missed if you are ever in the area of Penn's Landing.

We decided to eat at the Moshulu to end our fantastic stay in Philadelphia....and are so glad we did. It is a beautiful ship docked in the harbour! We were welcomed in by excellent staff and our service was great. Our waitress gave us a great run down on what was available to eat and what delightful choices there were and was very attentive to us. The portions are quite big so choose carefully. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a different experience.

First time to this charming ship restaurant, Were dining in s small private party so menu was limited but seemed to have basically the same item to choose from. Wonderful lobster bisque and the Atlantic snapper was perfect - better than I expected. Mrs Dogface had the chicken dish, which needed some sort of gravy or sauce but was still tasty. She also had a wonderful roasted beet salad. Other members in the party around us had the duck and burgers - all were quite satisfied. If you are not concerned about the pricing, you will definitely have no problem with the food quality and truly exceptional service. Desserts were crazy good. Nice creme breule and the sorbets are home made. Only dogs at that parking there is 15.00 (I was lucky to get some street parking for 1.00 an hour) and for some reason, they could not make a decent Old Fashioned. Very surprised.

Four of us went to the Moshilu for Sunday Brunch to celebrate my mother's birthday. The views were so lovely and the service was excellent. The variety of dishes range from fair to very good. The house smoked fish and omlette station were highlights and the desserts wonderful. The creme brulee was remarkable. The $40 price is justified because of the unlimited champagne but for tea tottlers it may seem a bit expensive.
