Dock Street Brewery Hours

i just stopped by the baltimore ave location for the first time and was a little disappointed. after being told seating was first come first serve-my boyfriend + i grabbed a table outside. and we waited. and waited. and waited. no one ever came to help us, even after making eye contact several times with 3 different waiters. so after 15min i walked inside, mentioned we were sitting outside waiting and asked if we could order a drink + get a menu. we ordered a drink from the bar, walked outside and drank it. not one single server came up to us the entire time-even though we were clearly reading the menu + in need of service. it looked kinda like a free for all - no assigned sections for the servers and they were just kinda walking around taking care of what ever table grabbed their attention first-seemed very disorderly. on the positive side-its such a great location + the food smelled great! after finishing our tasty beers and sitting outside for about 30min wo/service, we left hungry. i'd love to go back, but was wondering if anyone else had this experience? was it just an off night?

rotisserie chicken-in Philly?

thanks for everyones reply. i'll definately check out the amish place in reading terminal one day even though it is a little out of the way. the amish place sounds closer to what i am looking for.
i have to admit, i am a little disappointed with the suggestion of Popeyes fried chicken. maybe i should be more specific-i do love fried chicken but it is definately not the same thing.
rotissierie is moister, juicier, golden and definately much more healthy. the places in brooklyn where i would find these delectable birds where usually puerto rican, peruvian and/or chilean/latin american restaurants. the food was dirt cheap, flavorful + homemade.
i am definately not looking for a fried food from a chain restaurant.

rotisserie chicken-in Philly?

I just moved down to philly from brooklyn. One of my favorite brooklyn meals on a cold winter night is rotisserie chicken served with rice and beans. I would love to find someplace to pick one up on my way home (germantown) from work (KofP). Any suggestions other than Boston Market or the supermarket? Thx!
