Philly Tavern is a huge supporter in our community. I was there for a Christmas in July event for Volunteer Prince William. They always have a nice selection of drafts on tap - including great seasonal choices. Their food doesn't disappoint. Good bar fare.

The Philly Tavern doesn't try to be anything it isn't. It's homey, can be a little cramped and is often noisey. The food is everything you would expect from a local pub - burgers, wings, fried foods - never any surprises. The friendly staff and atmosphere are what makes this place worth the visit. My preference was for after-work beers... More

We met up with friends for lunch. Food was good, prices were reasonable and our server was gracious and patient with our big group with four kids. They had a good selection of beer on tap and a decent variety of sandwiches and typical bar food.

Recently stayed in Manassas for a long weekend and for a quaint little town, I was surprised that the restaurant scene was a bit lacking. The Philly Tavern was one of those places. The food wasn't bad but just ok. The service was slow and the server was very rude which was my biggest turn off here.

Was on way home from a party in Woodbridge and decided to stop for a burger. Tried The Philadelphia Tavern for the first time. Cool interior as if out of the 1950s in a bar near Connie Mack Stadium ... without cigarette smoke. GREAT food ... for a tavern. Had the Philly Burger. Great fries as well.

Probably better for adults than kids but it works for all. This is definitely a lively restaurant, loud and busy. Good food, better than average service. Tight squeeze in some areas. Parking can be a challenge, take the first spot as you approach and walk the balance.

So this is my second review of this restaurant. First, let me say the food is good. I always substitute mashed potatoes instead of fries no matter what restaurant I go to. I asked server if I could substitute mashed for fries... she said no problem.. so I was a little aggravated when there was a $2 charge and I... More

I've stopped in a couple times over the last few months and have always had a great experience. There's a great selection of beer on tap and the food is always great. Highly recommended for dinner or an after work drink.

Hi, we come to Manassas occasionally and decided to try Philadelphia Tavern for lunch. We were told they recently changed owners and thought we would check it out. I ordered spinach dip and pastrami sandwich and my husband ordered a bowl of chile and reuben sandwich. So, the food was very good and we didn't have to wait very long... More
