Been here twice, love the atmosphere when the Eagles are playing! All Eagles fans, oh yeah and the occasional rebel fan! Good food, bartenders are great and you can't beat the ice bar to keep you favorite beverage ice cold!

i always visit here when i'm in the mood for a cheese steak and it seems that since his prices have gone up and the amount of meat you get has gotten smaller. i wonder if the owner realizes that the reason he has slowed down is that you can get just as good food down the road but better... More

We stayed at the Hampton Inn Beach/Oceanfront, Phillies Finest (sports bar) is within walking distance of the hotel. We went to get pizza or salad, I wound up ordering grilled chicken salad, it was very fresh and very good, also very filling, They have nightly drink specials. We had rum and cokes for $3 bucks...can't beat that 😊

This place may have fine Philly Cheese Steaks but don't buy a pizza here. Very plain, crust flat, sauce skimpy and price EXPENSIVE for pizza. Al's Pizza with the Sicilian crust is the best pizza at the beach, hands down!!

Terrific servers -- friendly and helpful. Food was fine and hours convenient. Comfortable ambience, perfect for after dinner or after a day at the beach.

Great Ice Bar to keep you Beverage icy cold, the food is awesome. I'm not from Philly but all my friends that are go here because they say its the real deal for a cheese steak. Great for watching sports. Hosted FSU alumni club for awhile and of course the Eagles. Lots of space for groups.

Introduced Philly's Finest to friends after raving about the cheesesteaks all day, and they were neither disappointed nor did they claim I exaggerated. They thought it was cool/funny that the Phillies game was on tv, to which I mentioned there were a lot of Phillies phans in the room (thank you for having the Orioles game on as well). Given...
