Good Cheesesteaks

We've had both Pat's and Geno's cheesesteaks in Philadelphia, and think Philadelphia Tavern has done a great job replicating the flavors. The bread is what makes it - authentic Philly cheesesteak rolls. I personally prefer the chicken cheesesteak. My husband prefers the beef. You can't go wrong... read more

In town to get my car serviced and had 2 hrs to kill. Wandered around the very pretty old town looking for a place to camp out, have a bite, a drink or two, whilst sitting outside to enjoy the Spring sunshine. Settled on PT and so glad I did! First impression was very positive as the bartender/waitress was incredibly... More

Philadelphia Tavern is the place to be! We love this place, it reminds us of back home (Wisconsin). Great people, great atmosphere, and most of all great food and beverages.

Most of the Manassas restaurants are less than desired, but the Philadelphia Tavern is a diamond in the rough. The food is good and the service is even better. I've been there 4 times now and April has been our server several times. She is awesome! Our food orders have never been wrong and she is very attentive to our... More

Loved the cheese steaks and the staff were very friendly! It was sleeting and the staff was great about making sure we stayed safe on the sidewalk. We will be back in warmer weather!

A table for two on a Friday night was not problem. Most of the business in this small place seems to be on the bar half. They had a reasonable list of beers on tap. The food was ok, but nothing special. I'd go back.

I'm from Phili and used to go to this place all the time, giving it a good 7 out of 10 with the previous ownership a few years ago. Ive been back a couple of times hoping they would bring back the quality from before. They are not half of what they were when orignal owners opened in the 90s.... More

Visited this place twice now and I haven't had a bad experience yet. Little sports pub dedicated to all things Philly. The servers have been nice the beers have always been cold and the food is pretty good. Went out on a limb and tested if the cheesesteak was Philly quality...wasn't disappointed. It's busy but not obnoxiously noisy and its... More

This is a smalltown bar with great food. I like the cheesesteaks and calamari. With their new outdoor seating area you can really relax and take in the main street sights and people watch. (Which is always entertaining in Manassas!) I hear they have awesome karaoke on Friday nights.
