Food and ambiance are very good. Service is prompt though not impressed with how long it took for simple entries when table of 8 who came in 30 minutes after us were served about the same time. Food prices make this a special occasion place especially if you were from out of town like we were. My first Bookbinders was in 1958 and many times since in Philadelphia. Menu here has more variety.


Great, good food. Came out quick, hot and correct.


Went to celebrate 60th Anniversary for our parents and the staff printed special menus with their names. What a nice touch. As always the food was amazing and service excellent!!!! Love the setting of Bookbinders!


I definitely recommend Bookbinders! I would definitely eat there many more times.

Amazing, delicious crab cakes


Great food and atmosphere , would definitely recommend and visit again!


Pleasant outdoor scenery. The plates were amazing. I recommend the crab stuffed salmon! Excellent service!


Excellent service in a really cool, old school setting. Food was outstanding. Drinks are a bit overpriced but nothing crazy. Overall, very much recommend.


We had not eaten at Bookbinders in 12 years and were excited to go back; however, our dinner started off on a very unpleasant note when the glass my husband’s whiskey was poured in was badly chipped around the edge. Luckily we spotted the chip before he drank from the glass or he would have cut his lip. The server was quite rude throughout the evening and even debated with my husband about his steak being over cooked. After our meal was completed I asked to speak to the manager to ensure he was aware about the chipped rocks glass so the could check their inventory and was very surprised that I was notifying him of this because he was unaware this situation had occurred.

Amazing food and service!

We had never been to this location, but they upheld all of the tradition and quality of the original. Special accolades to our server, Patrice, who juggled us and some large parties without a problem. Small problem that night was that something in the air circulation system in the front of the restaurant malfunctioned, so we left through a cloud of smoke. But, with that being a temporary problem, we will definitely return.


Gorgeous setting wonderful service excellent staff!!

Went to dinner with my mom and loved the vibe of the place! Yummy dinner and the desert was amazing. Would recommend!


It was great overall. However, the food was a little salty.


The atmosphere and the staff were exceptional. We were there for my wife’s birthday and they treated her to dessert after our meal. Atmosphere was inviting and relaxing. Very clean.
