Yum! Very large helping of grilled steak and onions- fresh roll - what's not to love? This is a locals hang out, so even off season you get consistent quality. Very good sub for a good price- next time let's try the wings (I've heard good things!)

We love High Stakes where the staff is always friendly and the food is always great. Fantastic Wings and Philly Cheese Streaks. They always have some drink specials and their kitchen is open late. Several TV's to watch your favorite sports events. Also they have some very good musical entertainment on the weekends. Always a good time

Seemed like a place where a lot of locals went. Great cheesesteak, fried pickles and old bay wings. Staff was nice and attentive.

The cheesesteak sandwiches are as good as the ones you can get in Philadelphia. The menu is varied offering different types of sandwiches and salads. There is plenty to choose from.Specials offered depend on the day of the week. The clientele seem to be mainly local, retired people who visit regularly and everyone knows everyone else. Their version of Cheers.... More

If you are true Philly sports fan this is the place to be in OCMD. Serves typical Philly bar food. The food is good and the prices are reasonable.

Hi Frank, Although we don't classify ourselves as a "Philly Bar", we understand why many people think this. We accept fans of all teams and do our best to have as many sports on as possible... all games, all teams. The Cheesesteak is our staple, which is definitely a Philly thing, and man is it good! Thanks for the review!... More

Some had wings for appetizer. Most of us ordered some version of cheesesteak. I asked for a side salad which was fresh and delicious. For dinner I had the original cheesesteak with cheese whiz and it was so good. Another from our group ordered the chicken noodle soup and didn't leave one drop in her bowl. She enjoyed very much.

Hey Lorraine, Thanks for stopping by. There are many different versions of cheesesteaks that people eat. It's always nice to try something new that you may have thought you would have never liked and end up enjoying it. It opens up a new world for some people! Thanks again! Brian More
