Where to Eat at Citizens Bank Park, Home of the Phanatic (and the Phillies)

With capacity limits lifted, Citizens Bank Park is building back its ballpark dining options, from vegetarian hot dogs to classic crab fries and cheesesteaks

Whether you’re a devoted Phillies fan or just in it for the pageantry and the Phanatic’s iconic antics, there’s nothing quite like catching a baseball game at Citizens Bank Park, which is open once again at full capacity. Located in South Philly in a stadium complex that’s home to Lincoln Financial Field and the Wells Fargo Center, as well as the Live! Casino and Hotel and the Xfinity Live! bar, it’s an easily accessible ball park that’s also a ton of fun. You’ll never go hungry while taking in a Phillies game — just don’t forget to snag a soft serve in a tiny plastic baseball helmet. It’s not quite baseball season without one.

New at Citizens Bank Park for 2021

There are a handful of new watering holes in Citizens Bank Park, all intended to quench your thirst on these hot, hot days. Here’s what’s new this season:

  • Yuengling Party Pavilion: If you’re a Yuengling devotee, like much of the population of Southeastern Pennsylvania, you’ll have a new place to imbibe on a local staple. In the 105 section on the Field Level, a new bar dedicated to all things Yuengling is open now.
  • Jim Beam Bourbon Bar: Looking for something harder? There’s a new Jim Beam Bourbon Bar, for cocktails and beers in Ashburn Alley behind Section 101. Feeling like you need to cool off with a cold beer instead? There’s a new Leinenkugel’s Bar Stand in Section 142.
  • Farm System: Behind Section 139, there’s a new location dedicated to gluten-free and vegetarian menu items for those who would prefer to skip the cheesesteak this time around.
  • Miller Lite Liberty Landing and Harry the K’s: Upstairs and behind the left field scoreboard, there’s the Miller Lite Liberty Landing bar for beers and cocktails, and Harry the K’s, where you can get a limited menu of ballpark go-to’s: cheesesteaks, jumbo hot dogs, wings, lighter fare, and of course, tiny plastic baseball helmets filled with soft serve ice cream.

Stadium Dining By Location

Field Level

  • Boardwalk Eats: All the hits you’d find strolling the boardwalk, but without any of the car traffic to get there. Think hot dogs, burgers, boardwalk fries, and soft serve in mini Phillies helmets. Boardwalk Eats is also a good spot for vegetarians: they serve both veggie burgers and veggie hot dogs. Left Field Plaza.
  • Budweiser Rooftop: With a great view of the city, the Budweiser Rooftop sells — obviously — Buds. It’s a great place to come for a mid-game drink. Ashburn Alley.
  • Bull’s BBQ: This BBQ spot is outdoors, and features pulled pork, smoked brisket, and sliced smoked turkey sandwiches, plus sides like baked beans, coleslaw, and cornbread. Left Field Plaza.
  • Campo’s: There are two historic cheesesteak spots at CBP: Campo’s and Tony Luke’s. If your loyalties are with Campo’s, you’ll find chicken cheesesteaks, vegetarian steaks, and a signature spicy cheesesteak known as “The Heater.” If you happen to be at the game early, Campo’s opens two hours before first pitch. Ashburn Alley.
  • Elfreth’s Alley Grill: A classic grill where fans can get cheesesteaks, Hatfield sausages, fries, tenders, and all the classics. Section 108.
  • Federal Donuts: Mike Solomonov and Steve Cook’s famous fried chicken and donut spot has an outpost at the ballpark, for crispy sandwiches to eat in the stands and freshly made donuts to take for a walk around the park. Section 140.
  • Pass and Stow: This spacious outdoor beer garden at the Third Base Gate is designed to feel like a backyard — if your backyard has Goose Island at the Park serving beer, wine, and spirits, brick-oven pizza from Foundry Pizza, fire pits, picnic tables, and tons of TVs. Pass and Stow also includes an indoor sports pub complete with a split flap display (like the one just taken down at 30th Street Station) showing the score. It opens two hours before the start of each home game and stays open until post-game. Third Base Gate.
  • P.J. Whelihan’s: At P.J. Whelihan’s, tater tots piled with American cheese sauce, shredded cheddar jack cheese, and bacon are a highlight, but boneless wings and wraps are available, also. Ashburn Alley.
  • Seasons Pizza: Personal pizzas are available here in plain and pepperoni varieties, with gluten-free options, too. Behind Section 101 in Ashburn Alley.
  • Shake Shack: Citizens Bank Park got the first sit-down Shake Shack in a sports venue when it came to South Philly in 2019. Set next to Pass and Stow, the Shake Shack sells burgers, including the SmokeShack with bacon and cherry peppers, crinkle-cut fries, and shakes. Third Base Gate.
  • Tony Luke’s: Cheesesteak fanatics need look no further than Ashburn Alley to get a taste of the local sandwich shop’s filling lunch and dinner options. Curly fries are an enticing side option. Ashburn Alley.
  • The Yard Bar: Here, fans can pick up beer, wine, and cocktails to wash down all those savory crab fries. Behind Section 104.
