Moshulu is one of the most unique dining experiences in Philadelphia aboard a ship. Dine indoors in our newly remodeled dining rooms or outdoors in the open-air or covered decks. Our menu features modern American fare including the freshest seafood, steaks, and sushi. Paired with seasonal craft cocktails, canned beer, and an extensive wine list.

    It's the city, so of course it was $20 just to park; to be expected, I suppose. The food was okay at best, and extremely over-priced. The service was pretty good, and the general ambience was nice. If you don't mind spending too much, it was a nice enough dining experience overall. There are much better places to spend that kind of money though.

    I took my girlfriend there for dinner. I asked our waitress if i could go up deck. (I wanted to propose). She showed us up deck and my girlfriend and i walked around while i found the perfect spot. We were all alone up there and it was such a beautiful night out. We came back to our seats and started to eat. The food was all so fantastic!! So we finished our food and we ordered desert. When it came out it said “congratulations “ written in chocolate!! And on top of that we got “2” free full glasses of champagne!! This was the best night of my life and the staff on board made out special night even more amazing! We both cannot wait to go back!

    Commendable service, wonderful food, and nicely recognized birthday, too. We had tried a well-known rooftop restaurant the night before, and Moshulu beat the view, food and prices. Good wine/drink list. Loved the setting, scenery of the water/harbor, and the history of the ship -- which alone makes it worth the trip. Only wished for a few meatless options.

The view is amazing and the management always stops by to check up on me. I love this restaurant and the people who work here. THANK YOU so much for your great food, fine atmosphere and excellent service. Jeff

    Food was absolutely delicious. Front desk service was awful. The three girls that work there are rude and unprofessional. They have no sense of what their jobs entail and how they should behave and act. The woman that took us to our table ran in front of us and seemed to be annoyed by our presence. Waiter was nice but spoke so fast we hardly understood what he said. Ambiance was nice. I would not come back.

    Good meal aboard a very large interesting historical sailing vessel. One annoying thing: a serval dollar credit card processing fee was charged. The check for a bit terribly extravagant dinner for two (with two glasses of wine each and tip) was $180. I imagine not many pay that in cash so I found the fee annoying.

    After an initial hiccup (no service after sitting for almost 10 minutes), staff and manager were very attentive and helpful. Food was good, not great. I had french toast and it was way too sweet. Ambiance and drinks were great. I would return again. You can never fully judge a restaurant on 1 visit.

    Wonderful Brunch at Mosholu this past Sunday! We had the South Philly Breakfast Sandwich & the Double Cheeseburger, both fantastic. The SPBS was quite a tasty delight. Started off with delicious Lobster Bisque Soup & the Warm Ricotta Donuts also a delight. A friendly & charming server, wonderful atmosphere. Will be back!!!

    Food was great. We were celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary. Appetizers came out promptly however our entrees took almost a hour to get to us AFTER finishing appetizers. Had to ask the waiter 2 separate times to check on food. Ticket must’ve been lost.

    The food was great. The service in the bar while we waited to be seated, not so great. We both felt dismissed and by the time our drink order was taken, we were informed that one of the drinks on the menu was unavailable. Once seated, our server was friendly and attentive. The first impression was not a great one but the food pulled them out. 50/50 on whether or not we would go again.

    A great place to eat for any occasion, good food and professional service. I order a glass of merlot and was not happy with the price for just one glass, I did not mention anything to my wife not to embarrass the waitress but $42 for just one glass without any explanation. The rest of the food and drinks was transparent. I would recommend the restaurant. Claudio Pujols
