If you want good music or want to dance this is the place. We barely sat down all night. Food is average or below for la cruz. But go there for the bands as they are awesome.

The evening at Philo's sweeps you into 60's and 70's soft rock with a little latin music thrown in for good measure. Great local talent and the food is as good value as the music!

A fun place with great service. I ordered the pizza and was disappointed. A fun place to go for drinks and see the live entertainment but eat before you go.

Philos ribs are great! Rarely can do any justice to the "all you an eat". Atmosphere, with the band, is a bit depressing now that Philo is gone. Admire the philanthropy that Philo started for this community and that is ongoing.
