We were staying at the Latham Inn and the Philly Bar & Grill is located just across the parking lot. Can have drinks and walk back to your room. The food was good for casual dining, the locals made for great people watching during dinner. The music was a little loud but then we were eating kind of late, can't... More

We were there on a pleasant Thursday evening when the live entertainment (Joes Boys) were the main draw. The food was very good and service was adequate. I would recommend this place for a casual bite. The live music made the environment much more inviting.

I went with a group of friends on a Wednesday night. The place was extremely crowded because of a weekly event. Normally I hate these kinds of weekly events, but in this case, the event was the only thing that made the noise level sometimes bearable. The music was so loud our waitress couldn't hear anything we said to her.... More

You choose your meat, then your toppings, then your cheese from a huge variety of offerings. They are sports themed and have DJ's, bands and Karoke and trivia nights. Always something to do, it's ablast to go to Philly's even... More

They know what they are good at and, if you're in the mood for them, then it's worth the trip. The wings can get quite spicy, the cheesesteaks are top-notch (especially for this area!), the potions generous, and the prices and drink specials reasonable. The large plate of buffalo chicken bites was enough to fill 2 people and have a... More

I love the new deck and the tables with the fans are awesome on a really hot day. They cool you right off. I love the beer bucket deals and the 2 for 1 drafts all the time. Those specials are awesome. The food is excellent as well. i love the loaded fries, the chicken caesar salad, the wings and... More

Sunsets and cocktails. Entertainment and good affordable food. Some high tables have overhead fans and or heating lamps, great idea. Hotel on premise if needed for out of towners.
