We ate here for lunch recently. We ordered cheesesteak sandwiches...the ones with the sautéed onions...and some wings. The wings were nice and crispy but not overcooked and the sauce was just like at home...buffalo style and hot. The sandwiches were on the money, although one sandwich came out as an Italian combo...if you are from up North, it was not... More

We know a good Philly cheese steak, having come from that area. We liked the ones here. Rolls were fresh, meat was good, cheese just right. Service was fast.

My family stopped here on our drive back home from a vacation in southern Florida. It was a bit of a detour from the main highway, but the food was worth it. My husband declared his Philly cheesesteak the best one south of Philly. My son concurred. I ordered a veggie pizza which was also delicious. The small pizza is... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. We try very hard to serve the most authentic food from Philadelphia we can since 2001. You can't make your own bread and have it taste the same but we do tracker trailer everything down from Philly. I am glad you liked it. Thanks and hope to see... More

Stopped in there for lunch. Impressed that they have an ice bar for your beverages. Had the Phillly cheesesteak with white American cheese, sautéed onions, mushroom and green peppers. Very tasty and will definitely return on my next visit to Jax Beach.

I am sorry you feel it was not a authentic Cheesesteak. My wife and I are both from Philly. We can not compete with fresh bread delivered in philly every day but we do tractor trailer the same rolls down from Philly. We use Amaroso rolls like everyone else since 2001 Give us another try...jeff More

In fact, in 7 days we ate here 3 times. You can have your sandwich made to order. The roll is soft and fresh The... More

Googled "Philly Cheesesteaks" in the Jacksonville, FL area and this little gem popped up. It's located near the beach and in walking distance to a variety of good things. It's definitely your typical bar & grill setting but very enjoyable. There are lots of locals drinking and munching on the restaurants speciality. I will say the cheesesteak is worth the... More

I've been going to Philly's Finest for over 12 years now and it always tastes just as good as it did that very first time! Will be a life long fan! I would recommend this to anyone looking for amazing food at a great price! The ice bar is also a great touch!

This place is great. I hate going to restaurants at Jax Beach because they're overpriced and the service just doesn't cut it. But this place has great service AND the food is made to order, it comes out hot and smelling great, even when they're busy . The drinks are fairly priced, and way better than many places out at...
