Table of 10- reservation was ready for us. We were having such a great time sitting outside, we didnt want to come in! Variety of dishes ordered, they all came out at same time, and everyone enjoyed their meal. The owner came over to introduce himself, and our waitress was great. Overall, nice experience. We will definitely go back.

Party of 9 seated quickly and waited on wonderfully! Eight different dishes were served and all were pleased. The taste and portions were in line with the pricing - this is not a 5 star, nor does it claim to be. Phil is the hardest working restaurateur I've ever seen and is constantly on the floor seeing to your happiness.... More

Phil's is nothing special. My wife and I went once and were not impressed with the food. For the quality of restaurant, the food was not exceptional. We are not planning on going back.

Just moved to the area and was told about this place from one of my husbands co-workers. Food is great and drinks are wonderful. We enjoy the bar area/outdoor space. We look forward to going back real soon.

After going to Phil's 41 a couple months ago and waiting and waiting to be greeted and seated we left. I live local and recently asked my barber for a restaurant recommended Phil's. I told him of my previous experience but we tried it again. Wow what a difference. Lisa was our server and went above and beyond. The food... More

This is a local place that we have lunch at every once in a while. I’ve wanted to write this review and finally did. You always get greeted promptly by Phil or a server, seated right away; food is always good, great fast service, drinks filled when half full. All in all a good place for lunch (never tried dinner...

Our first visit to Phil's. Phil, himself, was our greeter and we chose a table in the lounge...it was a pleasant cozy room. I noticed the dining room was a lovely bright room, as well. Our server, Brooke, was pleasant and professional. We ordered their special of the day, stir fry chicken which was so delicious. The right portion and... More

What makes Phils 41 a very good restaurant is the fact that Phil keeps watch over the kitchen and the presentation. Mostly Italian cooking but great all around menu - mostly home made. Specials are "special" and have never been disappointed in a meal. A problem.....Phil makes it right. A fail safe restaurant.
