We went here based on the recommendation from our hotel. It was a crashing disappointment. The food was just average, at best. I had the ribs (which is a specialty). They were OK, but certainly nothing to get excited about. My wife had the special...More

Came in as family of 5. Seated quickly. The place was so busy. Filled with many good smells of steaks, pulled pork and burgers. We ordered chicken, and a few different fish dinners. Everything was good. Service was decent. Cheesecake was excellent! Would come again.

The ribs are to die for. It is a fun place with an active bar with excellent bar bites and sandwiches.

Went on a Saturday night and the place was not very crowded at 6 PM. None of the 4 of us ordered ribs and all of the 4 entrees were pretty unremarkable. The chicken/cheesesteak combo sandwich was so dry it was impossible to eat without...More

Top notch local spot in the Philly Suburbs, classic look inside but strong lunch/dinner menu and beer list. I've been here a number of times mostly for late night & sunday football games. Italian hoagie was huge & the ribs are downright legit. Cool spot...More

I have been going to Phil's for over 20 years. Love the burgers and ribs. My husband likes Charlie's Salad and the flounder. Good onion soup snd Reubens too. The menu is HUGE! Easy to find whatever you want! Large portions too.
