“Best cheesesteak at the beach”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Yes, I will echo the sentiments of most on tripadvisor and say that these guys know their cheesesteaks! Consistently the best around in my opinion. Great quality meat (no gristle or gnarley bits) and great rolls--can't go wrong with one of these. Good wings too. The crab cake sandwich is large and is pretty good. Definitely give this a try.

Awesome Old Bay wings & cheesesteak subs. Onion rings and fries are delicious, too. Just a great place to go! Went twice in my one week vacation!

Hey Kelly,

I always like to hear when people come back a few times in one vacation. Lots of times people like to spread it out and try a bunch of places. People love the Old Bay wings... I'm a Honey BBQ fan myself... try them next time!

Best,
Brian

“Get the Cheesesteaks!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

The cheesesteaks were wonderful. We ordered them for carry out and they were hot and made exactly as we ordered. The portion is quite large and there was tons of meat. You may want to share one but I enjoyed the leftovers later :)

Hey JWalkerr,

There are occasional times where people prefer the take out because there is just something different about eating a warm cheesesteak at home. You are very right about eating the leftovers later on as well... especially when you forget about them and find them the next day. Score!

Thanks for the review!

“Good spot for Sandwiches and Watching Sports”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We were looking for a good place for subs and decided to give High Stakes a try on a weekday afternoon. We enjoyed it so much we returned for a second visit.

There is a takeout sub shop next to the bar/restaurant. The shop features Philadelphia sports, with pictures of Eagles, Flyers, Phillies on the wall. I did not see any photos of the 76ers, but I believe that will change as the 76ers improve in the next few years.

The cheese steaks were the special ($4.00) so I decided to try them. They have regular and “mini’ cheese steaks. For us, the minis were more than enough. We opted for provolone cheese instead of the “cheese whiz” that characterizes authentic Philly cheese takes. They were good and loaded with meat.

On our second visit, we want into the bar and went to the section on the right as you are coming in the door. I ordered the Italian hoagie with everything. It came on a hard roll and included fresh Italian meats. Crista ordered the Reuben with sauerkraut. She said the corned beef was very lean and tasty. Her only complaint was that there was not enough sauerkraut with the sandwich.

Although Philly steaks are featured, O’s games were shown on all the televisions in the bar. It really has a “sports bar” feel to it.

Our server was very good. He was very personable and wanted to make sure that we enjoyed our meal. He recommended the onion rings. He was right as they were very tasty, with only a light breading.

I would recommend High Stakes for a takeout sandwich or a nice place to relax in the bar, eat hoagies or steak sandwiches and watch sports.

Hi Hoops!

Thanks for reviewing us. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your time at High Stakes. We support all teams in the bar. We do our best to have as many live sporting events on as possible to accomodate to all sports fans. I hope you are right about the Sixers, but it may take longer than expected! Stop in and see us again soon!

Thanks,
Brian
