Traveling from State College to Philly for a sports weekend, our hotel recommended this joint for a great beer and sandwich. Local live music, nice beer list, cool neighborhood setting and easy parking. Most importantly, damn good food and lots of it.

I have visited this restaurant several time with large groups of people including co-workers and customers. We had a great meal every time. The Portions are huge and we always take food home with us.

My family loves Phils. The menu is large and varied, the beer selection is good, and the people make every visit pleasant. As a bonus, their take out food is as good as eat in.

I returned here after a long hiatus. Phil's Tavern still has the best cheesesteak and largest menu. A plus was how cool the restaurant was on a hot day. The service was excellent.

I had been here in a while and went back with a couple friends. The beer was excellent, the food was very good, and the server was great as well. Left fully satisfied and didn't pay an arm and leg. Very good little joint!
