This casual place with outstanding food is busy, busy, busy all the time. There isn't one thing on this menu that won't impress a seafood lover. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is conducive to chatting up your fellow diners... from all over the globe... which just adds to the fun. This dining experience at such a popular place...

After three years of hearing how great this place is, we finally made it out to Phil's, about 30 minutes from Monterey. We first went on a Sunday and the line was spilling out the door into the parking lot. Orders are taken at the counter (which passes by a small bar in case you need a refreshment to help... More

There is a large variety of fish and preparations. Going on the weekend, plan on waiting in a long line. Head there during the week and the availability is much more pleasant and easier. The Cod fish and chips is a large portion and tasty. The Shrimp and chips was delicious, nice size shrimp and fresh The food is made... More

Heard about this place from a few friends and decided to try it out. The line was out the door the entire time we were there, so we figured that must be a good sign! The line moved quicker than anticipated, but DEFINITELY worth the wait for the food. The prices were a bit high but definitely worth it compared... More

I was completely shocked when I tasted their cioppino. I have eaten cioppino dish at almost every fish market I have ever been to, and this was absolutely the best I have ever had. The atmosphere wasn't so great, so we got a take out and ate it at our ocean view condo. I also bought fresh salmon here and... More

Try the NE clam chowder. Overall everything was very good and the fish was really fresh. Nice casual atmosphere - great stop after kayaking on the Elkhorn Slough.

Our expectations were high, given the reputation of this establishment, but the food is rather mediocre. Portions are very large (perhaps that explains in part the popularity of this place), but the food is not flavorful. The general feel of this restaurant is of an average fast-food joint with high prices. The french fires had an off flavor, the fried... More

After a long grueling day in the central valley heat we drove out to the coast and stumbled across this wonderful place. Generous portions, reasonable pricing. You can eat inside, outside on a covered patio or outside in uncovered patio area overlooking the ocean. It's a go-up-and-order place and they bring it to your table. I was very impressed with...

Fresh fish "off the boat" prepared in different ways. Pasta options and hamburgers as well. Other patrons confirmed these were excellent, too. Great variety, generous portions, fun for all ages.

We were visiting the Monterrey Bay area with a California native friend, who knows the area well and she introduced us to Phil's. What a gem of a place. They have an extensive menu of fresh local seafood. Nothing fancy; you order at a counter and the food is delivered to your table, but everything is superb. We had the... More
