I used to live in the area and would go to Philly G's every couple of months. Since we moved, I still try to make it there as much as I can. Good food, nice staff, and comfortable ambience.

We planned for dinner at Philly G's, only to find a sign on the door that they had closed for good, with no other explanation. The website is no longer active. And the phone number is out of service.

Thankfully we had a Groupon as the real price was not worth OK only quality. Not enough selection in food for common Italian dishes. Would have liked Chicken Visuvio on the menus.

Stopped here for a quick bite after the show at the Mariott and was immeasurably impressed with the tastiness of a simple hamburger. Mine was with avocado and was served on a toasty garlic spread bun. I normally don't get much involved with food but...More

We had restaurant.com coupons and said lets give it a shot. It is a nice restaurant with outdoor seating and the food is mediocre. The service was confusing, we did not know who our server was.
