THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Octo Waterfront Grille Restaurant Review

: With its prime riverfront location, live music and spacious deck bar, Octo Waterfront Grille is one cool place to take in the view on Philly’s Delaware River. Enjoy appetizers like homemade cheesesteak spring rolls and mini crab cakes, but don’t miss sampling chef Patrick Dwyer’s well-crafted seafood-centric menu. Dwyer, whose résumé includes stints at Smith & Wollensky and Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, delivers rich lobster bisque and fresh pasta dishes, like the zesty shrimp and scallop fra diavolo with fresh basil. The salmon is another winner, a large portion of wild Atlantic fish stuffed with Brie, crab meat and shrimp. For dessert? The chef’s chocolate malted crème brûlée, garnished with Whoppers, offers a sweet ending.
