  • Congratulations. "Saveur" magazine named this one of the "Top 100 Experiences in the World." You've only got 99 more to go!
  • When you want something more than a plain old watering hole how about a place set within the Greek-temple-like grounds of a 19th-century waterworks, looking out on the Schuylkill River.
  • The $40 brunch buffet spread. (Smoked salmon, or broiled? Waffles or croissants?)
  • One of my favorite places to Snap some great pictures.
  • The bar is cozy, has interesting taxidermy and if you can, sit at the window framed by candles.
  • We don't serve squid, we serve octopus! Completely different animal, but we take 3 days to cook it so it's really good. It's also the leanest protein humans consume! Get the octopus or lamb chops
  • Sunday May 23rd, check out the "Wet" Party, 4p - 9p; make sure you say hello to Sophia! Prodigal Security will be there keeping it safe and sexy so enjoy the view and the sounds!
  • Great place to have a special occasion dinner, especially when the weeather is warm - for a nice walk on the water.
  • Fantastic place.
  • Great place.
  • Great brunch
  • Way Too expensive. Not worth it for the little you get. Very outdated and overrated. Service was slow and only attentive when convenient for them. Had to send 2 dinners back - not prepared as ordered
  • It has tremendous promise as a destination, but an inexperienced kitchen struggles to realize an ambitious Medi-Mex menu that ranges from seared watermelon and baked feta to whole fish with mojo.
  • Had a first date there the crab cakes was Great! And now he's my husband and we still go there.
  • A must experience. Fantastic
  • Not bad.......but if you ask me......Overhyped
  • They are working on a new cocktail and infusion using Veev. Basil gimlet and also the superfruit sangria, omg so delicious.
  • Caribbean Cruise and Ocean Breeze drinks are great, and a terrific bartender to boot!
  • Perfect Venue for an outdoor &/or indoor reception
  • Excellent place for great views, very good food and a great night out. Valet park if you arrive early as there is a time limit on some spots. Also try the squid as they are known for seafood.
