“Best Cheesesteaks South of Philly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Went today with the family for the first time and we'll be back again and again. Fantastic subs and cheesesteaks made with quality & care. Big Mike is an awesome host and a very nice local guy (he is also seen with his friend Shannon Tanner in the evenings at Shelter Cove). Off the beaten path on New Orleans Road, but close to all the attractions of HHI. Could use an Atlanta Braves/NY Yankees pennant or New York Giants poster on the wall though ;-)

“Best Sandwiches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

My wife and I got some sandwiches around 2 AM, and they were better than any sandwich made at any time of the day. They were nothing short of amazing. I had not eaten a philly sandwich even close to that good since I was in PA. My wife and I went on and on about how good they tasted, and how big the portions were. It was obvious that both owners care about their customers and quality. Phillys also catered our wedding, and the food was amazing. They were very accomodating and made food that wasn't even on the menu. Phillys will be a regular stop for my family on every Hilton Head trip.

“excellent sandwiches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

My wife, 3 kids and myself were on vacation at Hilton Head, SC.
we hit all the "restaurants" you were supposed to go to. And they
were all good. After a short cruise on friday morning, we went to
Phillys just to have a sandwich. While eating we both looked at each other
and said "this is about the best meal I've had since we've been down here".
The kids had hot dogs or salami and cheese. I had a meatball and my wife had a
phillie cheese steak. We have said that we ever get back down there for any reason,
we know where we're going to eat. i don't think you'll be disappointed.

Great deal on sandwiches on the Island. Kid friendly and Mike the owner cannot be nicer. Give it a try...

“Good deal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

First thing I noticed was that it was very clean. Staff was friendly..prices reasonable. My buffalo sandwich was great.. My parents liked their BLTs. The kids meals were good too...good quality chicken (not your normal short filler nuggets). The fries were to die for! Mike the owner is super nice and came to our table and spoke with the kids! Great for a quick lunch with the family!!! We will go back again
