Come for the delicious assortment of luscious food – stay for the best view of the fireworks and live music!

The holiday weekend is just a few days away and it’s back to school for the kiddos! Celebrate one last warm and memorable evening with us as we say farewell to the official summer season. Don’t spend hours of your holiday weekend in shore traffic come to Philadelphia’s boardwalk and beachfront instead. There’s plenty to see and do before the Mercury plunges! Join us on Sunday, September 3rd from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm for our Family-Friendly Labor Day Weekend Backyard BBQ Buffet!

Expect crowd-pleasing selections, live music on our open-air patio and spectacular views of the fireworks (which start at 9:30pm in front of our neighbors, The Impendence Seaport Museum.)  Jam along to fabulous musical performances featuring our own Dave Tecce, performing 4:00pm – 6:00pm and then our headliner, Ian Lander takes the stage at 6:00 pm-10:00 pm. It’s a fun-filled evening for all. End your summer with a bang and mouth-watering selections from our kid-approved buffet!

Musical Artist, Ian Lander
