Enter the world of the Moshulu for a relaxing step back in time. Our 6th visit for Sunday Brunch, but sadly no longer the buffet. All was excellent, especially the lobster bisque. For nutritarians, shy on vegetables. Always love sipping the optionalLy unlimited choice of champagne drinks while watching the activity on the river. Afterwards go up on deck to... More

Great location and actually good food but that's where it stopped It was a case of unqualified servers doing their best but totally ruining an evening Where they think banter is more important than technique leads to being unaware that 100 USD Chardonnay should be chilled or all red wine is not the same and steak is best cut with...

You feel like you are on the high seas even though you are docked. The service is ok and the overall experience was average

What a wonderful experience! The staff was so polite and accommodating, making sure we saw the sights from the top of the ship. The food was AMAZING, the drinks were fantastic, and the prices more reasonable than I expected. Paying $17 to park in their parking lot sucks, but it's the city, so it's not surprising. Highly recommend this restaurant... More

Moshulu has a great view of the still commercially active Delaware River. It still retains the feel of an early 1900's luxury passenger ship. When we visited for the first time in years, we found the new owners emphasize sushi that we don't eat. Fortunately, they still retain eight classics. We always find their seafood great. A large crab cake-100%... More

Although this is a restaurant and catering facility, one may just tour the boat, which my son absolutely loved! Photographs, a map, and a plaque/article, right by the reception desk, give a good history of the boat, where it went, when it sailed, and what it was like. Seating is outside and inside. It looked lovely! This was the highlight... More

3.5 years ago, my wife and I celebrated our wedding reception at the Moshulu. The great ship was the perfect spot on a summer afternoon to celebrate on deck with our family and friends, followed by a wonderful meal and more dancing and drinking. Every year, we try to come back to the tall ship to relive that night. The... More

We enjoyed a quiet Sunday evening celebrating an early Valentine's day (02/12/17), reservations were for 7.30 and we were seated quickly. Excellent views of the harbor and definitely lived up to our expectations. We ordered off of the special Sweetheart menu for Valentine's week and the service was very good. Food was fantastic, drinks were well mixed. All in all... More
