Rough around the edges, but good food and friendly service.

It is a bar, but offers excellent food and portion size for a decent price. Needed a quick place to eat for 3 and got seated immediately. More of a "sports" bar with numerous tv's, they also offer live music on certain nights. Bee selection is basic, specials during "happy hour". Loaded Nachos... read more

Convenient to I-87 and US-9, this pub offers indoor, outdoor under cover, and fully outdoor seating, and is on the same driveway as the Latham Inn (see my objective review on that). They offer a build your own Philly Cheesesteak, and my associate, native of PA said they did a very good job. My burger with cajun spice and crispy... More

We're in our late 60s, and stopped in for dinner. We each had one beer with our dinners. The waitresses were great, but stretched far too thin. Service was slow. The place was loud outside, where we sat, but eardrum-busting loud inside. The food was mediocre at best. When we left, the bouncers, who are stationed right at the exit,... More

My group of five were fashionably dressed and looking for a fun, local place to meet other friends on a Saturday night. Myself and my girlfriend had had dinner at Philly's previously, it seemed like it would be a fun place to hang out. Apparently, that was only going to be true if you were not as "colorful" as two...

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

This is a cool place, it has a bar inside and another outside. Their Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches are unbelieveable!!! 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

The Philly Bar and Grille is by all means the real deal. It has an incredible atmosphere(day or night), unbelievable great service, great prices and yes the best cheesesteak in the area. You customize your sandwich, coose either shaved steak or chicken, then up to three toppings and your choice of about six cheeses all for about eight bucks. The... 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
