“set sail with fine dining”

Since the launching of the Moshulu (pronounced Mo-shoe'-loo) in 1904, she has had a long and exciting career on the seas working the ports of Europe, South America, Australia, America and Africa. She was confiscated by the Americans in one war and by the Germans in the next. She has traveled around Cape Horn 54 times. She has hauled coal and coke, copper ore and nitrate, lumber and grain. In lesser days, she has served as a floating warehouse. In grander days, she won the last great grain race in 1939. Today, the Moshulu is the world’s largest four-masted sailing ship still afloat.The Moshulu was purchased in 1968 in Naantale, Finland for restoration and conversion into a restaurant. In the fall of 1974, she was towed to Philadelphia and opened as a floating restaurant on Philadelphia's Penn's Landing in 1975 until she was damaged by fire in 1989.

In 1994 the Moshulu was purchased by HMS Ventures, Inc and restored in the style of a turn-of-the-century luxury liner. The Moshulu was re-christened by Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell on July 24, 1996. In 2002, restaurateur Martin Grims, owner of many other restaurants, took over the operation of the Moshulu and opened the restaurant on May 1, 2003.

Since then, the Moshulu has established itself as one of Philadelphia’s best restaurants with AAA Four Diamond ratings and many "best of" honors. Ownership takes great pride in bringing inspired hospitality with adventuresome food and outstanding service to their guests. The Moshulu provides private party options with private dining rooms as well as outdoor decks with unparalleled views of the city and waterfront.Originally launched under the name Kurt and built for the GJH Siemers & Co of Hamburg, Germany in Port Glasgow, Scotland. During the period of 1904-1914, the ship was used to transport supplies to a copper mine in Santa Rosalia, Mexico. She carried coal and coke to Mexico and returned with copper ore.

It's a little pricey, but you're paying for the experience of eating on a historic ship. The food is good though, and they have an excellent brunch and an amazing bar.
