Better ate than never

I go to Moss landing 4-5 times a year and never tried this restaurant before. It was a nice surprise. Did not order anything fancy, but the hot fish sandwich was made for us, piping hot the way I like my food. Will definitely try other items on the menu on my next visit. And remember not to go... read more

We are staying in Santa Cruz and had to visit based on the coverage in reviews and the food network. What a disappointment. The fish market was ok but nothing special. The restaurant had a lot of choice but mostly deep fried food. We opted for the Manhattan Clam chowder, one of our favourite but seldom seen menu items, and... More

Phil's is a off the beaten track. Located across from the Moss Landing Harbor. By the look's it's just another warehouse. Look's are deceiving the food is fantastic. When you enter there is always a line. The menu is large and the portions are above average. Every time I eat at Phil's I try something different. I haven't been disappointed... More

After kayaking with otters in Elkhorn Slough, NOTHING beats a big bowl of cioppino at Phil's. It simply doesn't get better.

Came here on a rainy Saturday for lunch and waited in line for around 10 minutes to order. Menu had numerous choices, broiled and fried including many shellfish choices. Food came out very quickly, before I even had a chance to find a seat! I had a fried combo (cod, shrimp and scallops) and a medium chowder. The cod breading... More

Went there with a local (my Brother) along with my 23yr old son. Got Oysters for the table, Cioppino for my son, calamari fillets for me and lobster roll for bro. Everything was amazingly fresh. My brother kept insisting we get there by 11am (when they open) and soon I understood why: By 11:30 the line was out the door... More

The food here was pretty good but the long line was ridiculous. Only one was cashier was working on New Year's Eve for lunch and the line was not that long but the restaurant is very poorly managed. I have to admit our appetizer platter was served very quickly. Unfortunately, my fried seafood platter was over battered and not very... More

You definitely need to have one person wait in line and another reserve a seat. The line is crazy and the seating is limited so there's a good chance you'll be waiting on both. That said, there's a line for a reason. So delicious. The Cioppino is a famous.

This place is THE BEST for seafood outside of Monterey. The Cioppino is absolutely amazing as is most of their offerings. They also have a local wine list that is great. if your driving though Moss Landing- take the time to stop and have lunch or dinner- prices are pretty reasonable too
