Since 1983, Philadelphia Fish & Co. has been an Old City favorite for simple, fresh quality seafood. Choose between the simply prepared dishes, like grilled or pan-seared salmon, tuna, butterfish, swordfish, or shrimp, or have one of Chef Rambo-Garwood’s unique creations like rare yellowfin tuna served with chickpea puree and red pepper sauce.
While seafood is the major draw, meat lovers will not be disappointed with the delectable strip steak served with bacon, mushroom, pearl onion, and scotch butter sauce.
Come for lunch to try variations of many of the dinner entrées at lower prices or the absolute steal of a bar menu, where for $6 you can enjoy seared catfish, steamed mussels, or one of the best burgers in town, any time of day.
Happy hour specials are offered from 9 p.m. until closing with $5 cocktails.
