I was looking for all you can eat crabs, not only did I get all you can eat crabs it's seafood: peel and eat shrimp, snow crab legs, fish tacos, popcorn shrimp, and mussels served with salad and fries all you can eat too. All of that for $35.00. Atmosphere was relaxed and our server was great!

I stopped writing reviews for a while but couldn't let this one go.... Potentially the worst bar/"restaurant" I've ever set foot in. Northern Liberties so parking is nonexistent- ok, no surprise. Walked in, party of 3 at 9pm on a Saturday. No staff in sight, save the bartenders. Ok, fine we will seat ourselves (although sign says please wait). Head... More

12:30 reservation and brunch arrived at 2p.m! so apparently their kitchen is shared with the beach Club next door,hence the delay. I suppose the take on this would be don't go here in the summer! Once the food arrived it was very good. Smoked salmon benny was good as well as the breakfast burrito. The place is not expensive at... More

Went for the 30$ all you can eat seafood and it was terrible. No seasoning. Bland. Just awful. Never again will I eat there. I won't take the chance at eating anything else there.

Sadly, this is the only bar in the area with NFL Sunday Ticket. As a result, we often went there to watch the Packers as I am a die-hard fan. However, it was always very crowded with parties not even watching the games. Twice I have tried to order a bellini. One time I got sick and threw up. The... More

The food here is unique and well done. Despite having a seemingly normal menu, their take on the food is different than average brunch places. The servings are large and the food is tasty enough. somehow it just lacks that final kick of amazingness but good nonetheless

Wow!! So not what I expected. After seeing food pics from Kings Oak on Facebook we (4 of us) decided to go for the first time before a show in Center City. This is definitely not your typical breakfast spot. The food is so unique and interesting that it took us a while to decide what to order. Our waiter... More

My husband and I had a coupon and happened to arrive before 7pm so we took advantage of their happy hour specials. He had a draft, craft beer and I had a glass of wine for $4 each. We then ordered zucchini fries (meh), crab cake sliders (pretty good), and calamari (didn't like the sauce they put with it). It... More

Went here on a weekday night for dinner with friends. Overall, was not entirely unhappy, but not satisfied to say I'd ever come back. The service was very slow - despite the restaurant being virtually empty when we arrived, it took well over 10 minutes for the server to arrive. She was friendly, but there were large gaps of time...
