Map your way to Phil's before you leave because it is tucked down among the fishing boats and repair sheds of Moss Landing. Parking in its own lot, which was obviously there before it achieved fame by besting Master Chef Bobby Flay at making cioppino, is a a bit problematic (there are only about 15 spaces) but if you don't...

Loved the snapper tacos, but our serving sizes were ridiculously ginormous. These were not tacos, but burros, plus a supermound of fries plus a generous side salad. Seems wasteful in an area (Monterey Bay) that is recognized for sustainability to serve so much food on one plate to one person. So, unless you are a professional athlete or pregnant, I... More

We love going to Phils. Generally my husband gets fish & chips, his favorite. I am trying to eat my way through the menu, which is huge. Usually we sit at the bar and start our lunch (or dinner) with a Bloody Mary. The service has always been great. The fish always fresh. This place is normally crowded. The market... More

Live locally so we have been here a few times and the food is always wonderful! Crowded but worth the wait. I had not seen the picnic tables located outside beach side before....perfect for our birthday party gathering! Saw a pod of whales and someone said they were killer whales...made the meal even more fun! Love the fresh fired shrimp... More

Decided to try Phil's Fish Market and Eatery after reading all the good reviews. Nice location, right opposite the Moss Landing harbor with all the fishing boats and backing on to the beach. They have a nice patio in the back – on the sand with picnic tables that is probably great on a sunny day (which this was not).... More

We stopped for a sea otter search and lunch and were happy with both! Once again, had the clam chowder!

Since I was in the Moss Landing area, I stopped by Phil's for a medium bowl of clam chowder for lunch. It was just perfect. Lots of clams, good broth. It was a Tuesday so did find the last spot in the parking lot; only had to wait for a couple of people in line, and enjoyed my lunch. Phil's... More

My family settled on Phil's Fish Market and Eatery. I wanted to go to Moss Landing Cafe; however, this place has excellent reviews. Well, perhaps they were having an off day. The establishment is clean and charmingly themed to reflect a fresh seafood cuisine. I ordered the highly recommended sand dab sandwich. The sandwich was just okay. My family had... More

When we first pulled up to this restaurant, we were taken aback by the intimidating line snaking out of the main building. However, the delicious seafood proved to be worth the wait (and then some). So don't be driven away by the line, you won't regret waiting!

OK I get it that visitors want fresh seafood but for the money you spend here I think you can do better. Yes it's laid back, with no pretense but it also comes with little parking, long lines, family style seating and too many menu items. A great place for college kids, tourists and large groups on the company credit... More
