I tried High Stakes based on reviews here. Trivia was well run by a very nice man Ted. The drinks were below average, fairly certain as former bartender, a few of our party's drinks were made incorrectly. The cheesesteak which was highlighted in many reviews was just ok. I participated in a best cheesesteak contest for a local newspaper back... More

Hot day, so I stopped in on my last day of vacation for a couple of cold beers and some appetizers. The shrimp was excellent and the wings were perfect. The beer? COLD. Sadly I waited until the last day to stop in. Next time a few more visits.

The steak sandwiches are good, BUT I paid $15 bucks for 2 draft Lienys? So the bill was $40 bucks for 2 sandwiches and 4 beers without tip. Good stuff just pricey

HSBG54, Owner at High Stakes Bar & Grill, responded to this review

Hello 1956, Thank you for the compliments on the food, we appreciate it. The Leiny drafts that you speak of are priced at $6.50 and that is a 16oz. draft not your standard 12oz. and it's actually one of the most expensive beers we carry. I believe it's a fairly competitive price for that beer in this area. As for... More

It's like walking into your local corner bar and grill. You just feel like you know everyone. Stopped in for a sandwich and drinks. Although not quite the same as Philly, the cheese steaks were for pretty tasty. The 12 inch sandwich was just the perfect serving size. Drinks were very reasonably priced. Never had to go looking for a... More

My son and I discovered High Stakes Bar and Grill a few years ago when staying at Treasure Beach Rv park, which is right down the street. Serves sandwiches, burgers and pub food in a great friendly local environment. Great place to catch the ball game on TV while enjoying an excellent, reasonably priced, casual meal. They also have a... More

If you like great deals like me, this is the place. HH 11am to 7pm. The beer is cheap and so is the discounted food.

Also, during Holidays and special events, we have even more for you to choose from. Even without all of these wonderful specials our prices are extremely affordable and that is a... More

If you are searching for an inexpensive spot for good food and drinks, then you should try this place. Stopped in for a mid week lunch and found numerous specials. Amiable dining area and bar. They share a kitchen with the carryout/deli next door, so expect pub-like grub, not gourmet entrees. One of their claims to fame is the cheesesteak... More

Hi Lawrence, We started out with the carry-out and it's just as popular as it has been in the past, if not more. We do not serve gourmet entrees and do not have any plans to at this moment. We know what we do best and that is pub-like grub, as you say. We try and stick with what got... More
