Great seafood on the shore

This is a busy restaurant in an old cannery or warehouse. There was a long line of about 15 minutes wait to get to the front desk to order. My friend went outside and waited to grab us a great table on the edge of the sand, while I ordered our food. After ordering you fill your own drink glasses... read more

I loved the atmosphere of this eatery! Definitely a diamond in the rough! I never knew it was there but I will be back EVERY time! Their clam chowder is so good I almost bought a second bowl! Cashiers are so attentive, and it has a Bay Area vibe to it. Literally FEET to the beach, and gorgeous views!! Every... More

The wait is well woth the food, such a large selection and everything my wife and i ahve had here has been delicious. A tip, stop by a local Costco and buy gift cards for here, you will save, getting $100 worth... More

Amazing food and great eating experience just off the beach at Moss Landing. The queuing is well worth it.

Monday evening and a packed house. Great food, live music. It's off the path a bit but really worth the time. They have good sized plates, a bar, fresh seafood market and a really festive atmosphere.

My family always wants to eat at Phil's. We are never disappointed in the food. The cioppino is the best anywhere. The local fish and artichokes are the best choices. In season, the lines are long. You place your order at a counter and look for a place to sit. Not elegant dining, just good food.

Been stopping here for many years, always crowded, Phils is in every tourist guide book as a "must stop" seafood restaurant. Over the years the quality of the food has gone down but the atmosphere stays the same which has been accurately described by previous reviewers. Some issues are that the portions are huge, everyone leaves with a box, the... More

Come on a Sunday afternoon. It was very crowded and with long lines. However, the cashier service (pay first, eat later) was quick and so was the kitchen. Only "but" was that we had to pick a table before we actually order, to prevent us from just having nowhere to sit after ordering (which seemed to happen to other customers).... More

When you drive up and see the place, you really want it to be great. It's a great location in a funky little commercial fishing area and it just looks like a "special find". Unfortunately, it isn't so special. You line up to order good and then the resulting meals are delivered to your table. Once you order, you are... More
