On a Saturday evening, you can expect a wait to be seated. The place was mobbed. Great beer selection, many TV's covering sports events, and of course a great meal of very fresh seafood. Spicy Mussels, highly recommended.

The pizza at Chickie and Pete's is my favorite. I also get a pizza to take home. It is great for breakfast the next day.The only drawback is the city tax on drinks.

Fun sports bar with great seafood and fries. The crabby fries are a must. The mussels and lobster rolls are really good, and the pizza hits the mark as well.

This is truly the best around. Great atmosphere, a ton of tv with all the local sports games on. The best crabs, wings, pizza and don't forget the crab fries!

We had a group of approx 26. They packed us into a room with buffet set up that would be appropriate for 12 people. We had to walk over each other and the food quality / price not worth it! Beer was cool; not cold!!!!

Great sports bar and we appreciated they were open late as we flew in past 11:00 pm. However the food was typical bar food, but really bland as well. Service was good though and it was busy at midnight so not a bad place, just don't expect a lot of flavor.

My brother and sister-in-law had a 6 hour layover in Philadelphia so we decided to go Chickie's & Pete's on Packer Avenue to eat and watch college football. The staff was very accommodating allowing us to watch the game of our choice. The environment was very pleasant and the food was great! Very seldom do you find a nice sports... More

My friend and I randomly ended up in philly and we're looking for a spot to eat at. We asked around and got the same response! Their crab legs were so good. Definitely going back to them the next time I'm in town.

Though staff is friendly and accommodating, food is awful! Mussels were foul and half of them were closed, plastic cheap silverware for a $30 meal served in a plastic carton? Pleaseee, skip this stinker.....

We were visiting Philadelphia for one night and discovered this place. Absolutely loved it! Sports bar and full menu restaurant, with fantastic atmosphere. Wish they would open a location in central Florida - East coast!
