There have been different owners over the years; the newest owners have maintained the quality as well as the local flavor of the area- highly recommended- great salad bar included as one of the sides

Very nice ride from Camden to Penn's Landing for the Tall Ships event a few weeks ago. Be aware that prices are raised during "event times" ($11 instead of the usual $9) Staff was very professional and polite.

The Ferry is a great option to use when going over to Camden for a concert. It is typically not that crowded, it is quick and can be pretty during sunset!

Depends on the tides and the amount of traffic on the river. For us it took around 20 minutes. It's not a straight shot across the river. When we came from Philly, they went up the river a ways before turning back downriver... More
