12 Awesome Places to Eat Along Philadelphia’s Waterfront
A guide to dining on the Delaware River
It’s no secret that delicious food tastes even better with a riverfront vista.
Thankfully, some of Philadelphia’s best dining neighborhoods — Northern Liberties, Fishtown, Old City and Society Hill — run right alongside the scenic Delaware River, and there’s no shortage of great places to grab a bite to eat overlooking boats on the river, the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, New Jersey and more.
Philly’s waterside dining options include traditional favorites like the Moshulu and La Veranda as well as relative newcomers like FringeArts’ La Peg and seasonal pop-up offerings like Spruce Street Harbor Park and Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest.
Some of the city’s most scenic eating can be enjoyed at the following venues.
