The 10 Most Delicious Things to Eat at Spruce Street Harbor Park
This Summer

Fried chicken sandwiches, tacos, waffle ice cream sandwiches and more for 2017

This summer marks another season for Spruce Street Harbor Park (SSHP), a favorite waterfront spot with giant games, space for outdoor lounging, shopping markets, concerts, movie nights, dozens of hammocks, picturesque LED lights and much more.

The park not only promises fun al fresco amenities and attractions, but it also offers a boatload of delicious food and drink options.

Returning this summer are a number of the park's standouts, including Port FedNuts (the Penn's Landing location of Federal Donuts which serves a now-famous fried chicken sandwich and other treats), the waterfront location of Franklin Fountain (ice cream, anyone?), Distrito Taco and Chickie’s and Pete’s (Crabfries! Cheeseteaks!).

New this year, Garces Group debuts Harborside Pizza, which features a solid selection of boardwalk-style pizza pies and slices in varieties like pepperoni, four cheese, meatball and more.

There are also a bevy of drink options, including the park's exclusive Lazy Hammock beer (created by Yards Brewing Company), brand-new draft cocktails, frozen slushies and creamy milkshakes.

Below we've highlighted the must-eat (and drink!) dishes at the pop-up park. We hope you're hungry.
