I was craving an open faced roast beef sandwich and chose this place. I was not disappointed! Lots of food and it was GREAT! Our server, H, done a great job. We will definitely return!

This is a great restaurant and bar in downtown Manassas, featuring great sandwiches and authentic Philly cheese steaks (they get the rolls delivered straight from Philly). Broad menu featuring lots of sandwiches. We tried the cheese steak (with cheese Whiz), the Reuben, and the gown up grilled cheese: all were excellent and we ate for $45. Old time bar atmosphere...

Every single aspect of this visit was perfection. We stopped in for a brew and dinner following adopting our foster puppy to his forever family. Jumped on Trip Advisor to see what was around and found The Philadelphia Tavern. We enjoyed the pretzels, baked brie and split a Philly cheesesteak...every bite beyond delectable! Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and courteous.... More

This restaurant is located on a side street in Old Town Manassas. It is a wonderful spot. We ate brunch there on a Sunday. They have a small outdoor seating area where we sat. Their brunch options are not huge but the food was delicious. One of us ordered the steak and eggs and the other ordered the traditional breakfast.... More

It's a neighborhood place. Usually, we get a Cheesesteak but tonight I had the Chicken Fried Steak w/mashed potatoes/gravy. The steak was an inch thick - best I've ever had. Good choices of draft beer, too.

We always go here for Philly Cheesesteaks because they have the bread brought in fresh from Philadelphia on a regular basis. You can also request "whiz" on your sandwich which is authentic. They have a great selection of beers as well and TVs to watch sports on. A really fun place to hang!

Had to try the Philly cheese steak which was excellent. Many items on menu to pick and we each ordered different things. No complaints from any of us and good portions. Service was excellent and nice variety of craft beer.

The Philly Tavern is ok pub food; greasy and none too healthy. The burgers are cheap meat, the onion rings are saturated in oil, and my stomach is usually gurgling and none too happy after dining here. If you like this type of food, you'll like the tavern. If you prefer food with a healthier flair, steer clear.

Thank Paul A
