Watch as the sunlight or the moonbeams, depending on the time of day, jump off of the Delaware River in Pennsylvania from your seat on the deck of the Moshulu, a Pennsylvania restaurant that once sailed the world’s waters.
Docked along Penn's Landing on the Delaware River stands a majestic ship with a storied history. The Moshulu boasts some impressive statistics. She's both the largest and the oldest "squared rigged sailing vessel" that remains in the water today and she is the world's only tall ship that has been transformed into a restaurant.
The Moshulu sailed the world's waters until the early 1970s when her role became one of a restaurant. The popular restaurant served Philadelphians and visitors from 1975 until it 1989 when she suffered severe damage from a fire.
The Moshulu remained but a memory until the mid-1990s when she was restored to her former glory and docked at Pier 34 in Penn's Landing, reopening in 1996.
The majestic ship moved once more in 2002, to its current location at 401 South Christopher Columbus Boulevard, and it again became a masterpiece against the Philadelphia skyline.
Guests can enjoy fine dining at the Moshulu 363 days every year. The Pennsylvania restaurant offers special menus during holidays and welcomes guests to celebrate Restaurant Week every August with a three course meal aboard the esteemed ship.

Enjoy a cocktail or the non-alcoholic mocktail or choose from a selection of coffees.
Scan through the dessert menu to find the perfect treat, such as white chocolate cheesecake, dark chocolate pecan tart, ice cream or sorbet, or coconut creme pie. Toast your dessert with a steaming cup of coffee, a dessert wine, or a single malt scotch.
