I first came here many years ago as a Rittenhouse Square area resident. At the time, it was a seafood store with a few tables available for eating in. Back then, only locals ate there (if memory serves, its original name was 20th Street Seafood). Eventually it became a full-fledged restaurant. I decided to check it out while on a summer of 2013 visit to Philadelphia.
It still has the feel of a modestly-priced local hangout. On the night I ate there, it was very quiet. I had a salad to start and then the crab cakes (something surprisingly hard to find in Europe). Both good if not the best I've ever had. Service was competent and relaxed.
Would I eat there again? Sure. That said, if you want a trendy, glamorous or "destination" restaurant, then you will probably be disappointed. But if you want something low-key and unpretentious, then give this place a try.
