Nice hangout for locals

We like to eat and drink with the locals, not the touristy places if possible. This is a good one. Typical sports bar atmosphere with the decor and big screens. Claimed to have an awesome cheesesteak, and have to admit, it was very good. Nice overall place for a happy hour.

We had two friends with us and I had read about a placed called High Stakes Bar & Grill on Route 54 in Fenwick Island. I called to find their location and the man told me they were about a mile and a quarter from Coastal Highway (in Ocean City), located on the right beside Walgreen's. You have to pull... More

We heard this place has a reputation for great Philly cheese steaks, so we thought we'd try it out. Nice friendly atmosphere with two bars. Cheese steaks were good. We're thinking, OK we'll come back here again. Then we got the check. $5.25 for a domestic draft. OK it's a resort area, but it's off the main drag and it's... More

Hi Tim, I assume you are talking about the Microbrew? I didn't think that $5.25 for a 16 ounce Microbrew Draft was unreasonable but I will definitely double check that now that it has been brought to my attention. The Domestic Drafts are $1.75 on Happy Hour and $2.75 off of Happy Hour, which for a 16 ounce is very... More

We moved to this area about 5 years ago. We were looking for a place that made REAL Philly cheese steaks and we found it here. The food is good and a great atmosphere. A locals favorite.

Best Philley cheesesteak south of the Mason Dixon! Very reasonable prices. Service was excellent! Mainly a locals bar, all willing to chat a while if you are seated at the bar. Bartender on Saturday very nice (Blondie)! I'll be back!

We have been looking for a bar in the Ocean City, MD vicinity forever to watch Eagles football and we finally found one!

I wrote a review a few months ago that the owner must of flagged because it it gone! Notice only good ones here for this place. That in itself is suspicious. The new young waiter we have had there the last two times is very good, personable and friendly. The waiter I have had in the past was downright rude... More

Hi Annie, Sorry to hear about your unpleasant experience(s) and disappointment of lack of poor reviews. I can assure you that nothing was flagged or deleted. I feel that all reviews, good or bad, should be owned up to. As you may know, the staff works both the bar and the tables and there has not been anyone new hired... More

Been here a alot of times, never a Saturday night, not sure if that made the difference. Why was is it such a big deal to change the televisions to (what was the majority choice) a Ravens game? People came dressed in purple. The bartender feigned that he was "new" and didn't know how to change the television !?!? All... More

Hi Pamela, I am a little confused on what happened on Saturday night. Our staff is the same staff we have had for a couple years now, who are very open to the customers' needs. The times where I had went out and checked the many TV's, they looked to have either the Ravens and/or Orioles games on them... perhaps... More
