Outstanding cheese steaks

I have enjoyed chicken cheese steaks here three times now, and they rank among the best. Excellent choice of ingredients and of course a great sauce are the key. Haven't tried other menu items so can't comment on that. Also haven't spent time in the bar area, just visited the small dining area... read more

Similar review as the previous post. Service was lazy. Girl bartender seemed to be more interested in serving talking to regulars then anyone else and on cell phone. Beers sat empty on the bar. Cheesesteak was recommended it was alright. Won't go back

We were referred to High Stakes by a local person who said he was a regular. We went for the cheese steaks based on his suggestion. Mine was good but my friends only had cheese on half. It appeared it pays to be a regular because .....1) our food was brought from the kitchen and sat behind the bar for... More

We had asked for a recommendation at one of the stores, and they sent us here. Typical bar atmosphere with football on most of the tvs, which was fine with me. They even found WVU game for me and put it on the closest TV! The cheesesteaks did not disappoint us! They were also very accomodating to our vegetarian friend,... More

We stopped by on a Thursday night before we went to see the Xmas lights at Northside Park in Ocean City, Md. They had a band or karaoke going at 5:30 PM.It was very loud. We could not carry on a conversation. We ordered the philly cheesesteak egg rolls as an appetizer. They were very good. They came in six... More

Hello Nihil, Thursday nights we have Baltimore Bob @ 4pm until about 7 or 8. He is a pianist that we have had for years now. He usually is not that loud but perhaps the speakers were turned up a bit too loud... it will be monitored. The Cheesesteak Eggrolls are made and cooked in our kitchen and are very... More

Great bar food and atmosphere. Cheese steak was good. Can watch the Eagles during the NFL season which is not a given down in the OC area.

Hi Alan, Happy to hear you had a good time. Not sure if watching the Eagles this past season was a good thing or not! Sheesh! But yes, we have the NFL Ticket and try to have as many live sporting events on as possible. Not all are guaranteed but we do our best to accommodate to all! Thanks for... More

Interesting that there are 2 bars if you sit next to someone who is a smoker you will know because they smell of smoke...move to the other bar but the wall btw doesn't totally separate customers.....they do have Trivia night and some other game nights and DJ's which is good for locals...cheese steak subs are good put don't get their...

Hello Maxx, Thanks for the review. I'm not sure if that's a coincidence that smokers prefer sitting at one bar rather than another? Obviously, you are not aloud to smoke at either bar inside of Delaware but I don't know if it's true that one bar has more smokers than the other bar. That's a peculiar observation though! We tried... More

A lot of my neighbors love and swear by this place but personally I think it's small, and loud. The,food is good, but when they have bands, it's way too loud and takes away from the ability to sit and chat. It's a popular place, but I'm not a true fan. It's good for quick food

Nothing fancy, just good authentic Philly cheesesteaks and ice cold beer. We never heard of this place. Our friends were going to eat here, so we tagged along. We're glad we did. Located next to Walgreens on Route 54 (just minutes from Ocean City, MD), the bar/restaurant is very comfortable and low-key. There is a very laid back atmosphere. The... More
