My daughter and I just got back from a long weekend in Halifax. We were there for 3 days and ate at Phil's 3 times! We loved the fish chowder, scallops, shrimps and the gingerbread is TO DIE FOR! Most of all, however, we enjoyed the atmosphere and the great staff. They were so friendly and genuine. Phil's will definitely... More

Phil's Seafood is a popular place, on a restaurant-packed street just down from the Oxford Movie Theatre. I confess. I go for the fish and chips (or fish and salad) and have not sampled anything else on the menu. If it's good and consistent, don't deviate. Phil's food is substantial and filling. If you have room, the gingerbread cake (served... More

After spending a day in the waterfront area of Halifax, we wanted some seafood. Most restaurants downtown were a bit pricey, but we found Phil's seafood a few minutes out of the downtown. There are 4 in our family and we all enjoyed. The seafood was great with generous portions and reasonable prices. Give it a try if you are... More

Great food with excellent service. Prices are very reasonable and the portions are VERY generous. The kid's menu is also very affordable which is something that I personally appreciate.

We eat at Phil's every couple of months. It is unpretentious, serving excellent fish and chips, panfried fillets, poached fish, and decent salads, all in good-sized portions. The fish is always very fresh, the service is always good. Phil's is a neighborhood, family-friendly place with reasonable prices. This is not the glamorous place you go to for the big anniversary...

We come here every year when we drop our daughter off at school. It's centrally located and a great casual place to come to when you're tired after a long drive and need some comfort food. It's pretty conventional, with few touches of chefly innovation, but that's the reason to come here. I think the broths and soups are the... More

We live in the neighbourhood and we used to count on Phil's for fresh, crispy-coated fish, generous and well-cooked fries, served with a smile and ready for take-out in jig-time. No longer! Most times, the fish is dry, fries limp and all of it tasteless. What happened? We had decided to give up trying, but found ourselves needing quick comfort-food... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by some friends who frequent Halifax. I must say I was definitely not disappointed. The service was great and the fish and chips were definitely the best I have ever had.
