Traveling in Philadelphia for Thanksgiving, we chose the Moshulu for dinner. The atmosphere on the ship is unique and very comfortable. The pre fixe dinner was $60 for adults and $25 for kids. Portion sizes weren’t very different and the kids had full sized appetizers,...More

While the food was ok, though not great, particularly for the money, the service left a lot to be desired. When we arrived there was no setting for our mother. Needed to ask for it. My lobster bisque was brought to me, but with no...More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local as a unique dining experience. It lived up to its billing. Although a little on the pricey side, for that special dinner it was terrific. The service was outstanding. There was no hovering, but there was...More
