For every two jobs national #retailers bring to a #community, three #jobs are lost as a result of local businesses closing down.

The Pros: Our waitress (Nicole?) was amazing. The Service was great! The decor and ambience is really fun. The Cons: The food is so tasteless it's shockingly boring and bad. At our table we ordered Gnocchi with Broccoli, Filet Mignon, and Veal Vesuvio. As a restaurant in Chicago, a city known for its italian food, we surprised how amateurish and flavorless the food was prepared. The Gnocchi just tasted like chinese food without the soy sauce. No salt, no garlic, just runny white soupy water all around it. Quite bad. The Filet was charred burnt on the outside, and was not a quality cut of meat. The Veal was chewy, and had almost no taste to the sauce. The vesuvio potatoes were basically just very very dry steak fries. Other than service and atmosphere which were great, the food was very dissapointing. We ended up having it packed up, brought it back home and had to recook everything in order to make it edible. And for the really high prices that they charge, we expected better.

Love this place, the atmosphere and food is fabulous. On the other hand, the last time we visited with are customers. The service was so bad. My husband had to get up three times to find him. When your paying good money. This waiter couldn't handle working at McDonalds

Food was ok, but not a good value. We've been there three or four times, not sure we'll go back. Atmosphere in the bar is a little scary. Seems like a pickup place for late career divorcees. Oddly, the live music was good the few times we went in the bar.

Pilly g's restaurant People ( staff) were not well trained and the bus boy was taking plates off the table before our appetizers were complete, didn't even ask if we were done! Some what fast on food. The table wobbled? Appatizers were good the lemonchello shrimp were nicely prepared sauce had a werid after taste for me. Salad very nice and chrisp also,Dressing had great flavor waitress asked tables next to us if they wanted fresh cracked pepper or cheese on their salad or soup and we were never asked. For the main course I ordered the skirt steak that was for 30 dollars overpriced.I could have got a better skirt steak from a fast food Greek joint. Which is supposed to be the chef special marinated in their special sauce and the skirt steak was dry a little overdone and the potatoes were supposed to be the Vesuvio potatoes just baked potatoes no flavor no garlic no oil no cheese very disappointed! For the young lady who ordered her main course she ordered the filet mignon which had no real beef flavor steak was chewy and the broccoli was so overdone it was mush. It was presented to her cafeteria style. And for dessert we ordered the seven layer chocolate cake came out presentable with whipped cream and chocolate sauce cake was very nice and I'm sure it was brought in. Overall philly g's was a one stars very disappointing. By: Ragon Black

Pathetic service and disgusting attitudes. Waited 15 minutes for our table to be cleared and instead they brought bread. Then the 'waitress' who brought the menus had such a piss poor attitude we got up and left.

I divide restaurants into three groups; gourmet, fun, and other. Philly G's fits squarely into the fun category, but falls very short of the gourmet category. Went there last night with a large crowd. My skirt steak was excellent, and the family style appetizers were good. Drinks and live entertainment were excellent; I will go back.
