Nothing matches Phil's

Ample doesn't begin to describe the portion sizes they serve at Phil's -- and it's all very good, to boot! Service is excellent, atmosphere is fine. You can't go wrong with just about anything on their menu.

I stopped by to pick up lunch on my way home from golf, called order in on my way home. My sandwich was ready as I arrived. The best turkey club ever! So large I could only eat half at first but had to stuff the rest down because it was so good. Lots of crisp bacon and ample turkey.... More

Phil's Tavern was the first place I ate at when I moved to PA almost 30 years ago. Over the years Phil's has matured. Gone are the free pickles, wobbly chairs, paper menus and no waits. In are wine by the glass, many more rooms and tables, entrees, bound glossy menus and expect long waits on weekends. Parking is tight... More

This is definitely the place to go if you're really hungry or want 2 meals out of your 1 meal. They portion sizes are awesome.

We went there with few colleagues for dinner. We had few starters and drinks and service was great. Food was also very tasty and nice. Just an advice: the portions are huge so watch out when ordering as we had lots left on the table and I felt bad about food waste

The food quality and choices have improved over the years. It used to be huge portions of only fattening food, but not so any more. I had an absolutely delicious salmon sandwich there recently. The salmon was cooked and seasoned perfectly. I was with 4 other people, and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

Parking lot was full on a Friday for a late lunch. Most everyone leaving the restaurant were carrying doggie bags. We thought ...it must be good. The place is much bigger inside than what you see from the street. Quite a few cozy, old, rooms of seating areas and a large bar as you walk in. I was surprised to... More

Where do you go in the 'burbs of northwest Philly for good Philly fare? Well, Phil's tavern, of course!! I love the steak, cheese steak or pizza steak sandwiches, mozzarella sticks and draft beer. It's comfort food and the environment has something for all, family restaurant on one side, bar on the other. It's been around for a long time... More
