Last time I was there was a few years ago for lunch with a dear friend - we had the steak subs - good but they still allowed smoking at that time. Not good!

My wife and I stopped here for lunch and had an absolutely wonderful time. The service is top notch; fast and friendly. There were several beers on tap to include some locals. The home made chips are stupendous. The fries are great too, but the chips! It's a smaller place but ample with easy to find parking in the area.... More

Philadelphia Tavern is a small place tucked between other restaurants and stores fronts on Main St. Walking in it seems small and homey,the kind of place the locals would frequent. During my visit it was rather quiet and slow but on busier nights I can see how the atmosphere would be full of energy. Our waiter was sociable and has... More

This is a great restaurant and bar in downtown Manassas, featuring great sandwiches and authentic Philly cheese steaks (they get the rolls delivered straight from Philly). Broad menu featuring lots of sandwiches. We tried the cheese steak (with cheese Whiz), the Reuben, and the gown up grilled cheese: all were excellent and we ate for $45. Old time bar atmosphere...

Every single aspect of this visit was perfection. We stopped in for a brew and dinner following adopting our foster puppy to his forever family. Jumped on Trip Advisor to see what was around and found The Philadelphia Tavern. We enjoyed the pretzels, baked brie and split a Philly cheesesteak...every bite beyond delectable! Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and courteous.... More

This restaurant is located on a side street in Old Town Manassas. It is a wonderful spot. We ate brunch there on a Sunday. They have a small outdoor seating area where we sat. Their brunch options are not huge but the food was delicious. One of us ordered the steak and eggs and the other ordered the traditional breakfast.... More

It's a neighborhood place. Usually, we get a Cheesesteak but tonight I had the Chicken Fried Steak w/mashed potatoes/gravy. The steak was an inch thick - best I've ever had. Good choices of draft beer, too.

Thank CherlynDC
