My spouse and I are OCMD locals, however, we have only visited Highstakes a couple of times since we have moved here 4 years ago. Highstakes was a nice pub, but we found it to be alittle crowded during busy time and alittle tough to get good parking. Highstakes did offer some good food and of course a full bar!!... More

Hi Deuce, Thanks for the review. Often, the bar does get pretty full which is a great thing for us! Parking can be an issue as well but there is parking available in the back and/or on the other side of Walgreens, which isn't super far away. Stop in during the later months as there are times where the town... More

Visited with group of 14 around 5 pm. First person from group announced place is to small to accommodate the size of our group. Almost said okay and started to think where else to head. When out of the blue one of the bartender/servers says we got room for 14 and proceeds to rapidly put tables together. This was our... More

Saw all the reviews and decided to try it out since my husband and family love cheesesteaks. We had a party of 10 and maybe it was because we got separate checks, but they brought out food and the appetizer for 1 check, 5 minutes later brought half an order for others, and the last 4 people waited about 8...

Hey Pa, Thanks for stopping by with your family! I'm not going to give you any excuses, but I'm almost sure that the seperate checks were the issue. I would be quite surprised if there was repetition in that happening again. I'm content that everyone enjoyed there food but I'd like to see everything come out together. I'm aware of... More

Actually went there twice while we were on vacation. They have two bars in there and a carry out area with tables too. Having said that, on both occasions there were families with young children so its great for all ages. It is popular and while it seems they don't have a lot of staff, they do hustle and they...

Stopped in our way back to Bethany Beach from Ocean City. My husband can't say enough about the cheesesteak and is coming back to get another one for dinner. The chicken Caesar wrap was tasty, and the PB&J squares were a hit with the kids. Not much here in the way of atmosphere - really just a bar with some... More

Great little local bar! The patrons & staff very friendly! Good drinks specials & it was trivia night when we went! Good crowd! We ordered a mini cheesesteak, it was ok, being from Philly I'm critical about my cheesesteaks but it was OK, We did also order The crabcake sliders, which were out of this world!

Hey mics, Glad to hear you had fun during Trivia time, it usually starts up in May and ends on Labor Day, just in time for FOOTBALL! I'm sorry that you got the impression that your bartender was a little loopy. She is very bubbly at times and full of personality but nothing other than that. We all have to... More

We've been going to High Stakes since it opened and have never been disappointed. The Cheesesteaks are always consistently delicious. Service is always friendly and with a smile, what more could you ask for.

It's in a little strip mall next to a Walgreen's - watch out or you'll miss it! It looks like a locals bar - it's not fancy, the prices are great and their food is delicious! These cheesesteaks are the real deal! Best I've ever had outside of Philly! This place is a must if you like cheesesteaks!

Hi irish, Happy to hear you enjoy our Cheesesteaks so much! There are so many toppings to choose from, you can create any kind you want! It's funny about our location... I always receive phone calls from customers telling me where they are and asking how to get to High Stakes. You really will miss it if you aren't paying... More
