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! Every year we are in OC the week after labor day and the first week of Eagles football and every year we search. This bar has lots of Eagles fans. You do have to get there early... More

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

Yes, I will echo the sentiments of most on tripadvisor and say that these guys know their cheesesteaks! Consistently the best around in my opinion. Great quality meat (no gristle or gnarley bits) and great rolls--can't go wrong with one of these. Good wings too. The crab cake sandwich is large and is pretty good. Definitely give this a try.

Awesome Old Bay wings & cheesesteak subs. Onion rings and fries are delicious, too. Just a great place to go! Went twice in my one week vacation!

Hey Kelly, I always like to hear when people come back a few times in one vacation. Lots of times people like to spread it out and try a bunch of places. People love the Old Bay wings... I'm a Honey BBQ fan myself... try them next time! Best, Brian More

The cheesesteaks were wonderful. We ordered them for carry out and they were hot and made exactly as we ordered. The portion is quite large and there was tons of meat. You may want to share one but I enjoyed the leftovers later :)

Hey JWalkerr, There are occasional times where people prefer the take out because there is just something different about eating a warm cheesesteak at home. You are very right about eating the leftovers later on as well... especially when you forget about them and find them the next day. Score! Thanks for the review! Brian More
