Husband and I went to Phillips for seafood buffet. $34.95ach. It was a very busy place and the service was very good. They had soup, salad and almost any kind of seafood possible. My husband had the prime rib and it was excellent with his seafood. I stayed with the seafood. The snow crab legs and the crab imperial. The... More

There was a wide variety at this buffet even had some things that were not sea food. The food was good, Service was great. It was a little costly.

The place gets a lot of customers and the food is good with a pretty good selection. They really pack us in and it gets very hot and steamy in there. Not the best buffet but is pretty good.

Our family was lucky to find such an amazing buffet while staying in OCMD! We have tried many buffets, but they don't compare to Philips Seafood House. The food was beyond excellent and there were many types to choose from. Our waiter started off a little rocky by leaving our table in mid sentence, but then redeemed himself with his... More

I have been going to this restaurant and the crabhouse location in OC since I was a kid, it is still one of the best values on the beach for the selection and quality of the food. We had a party of 11 adults and children and everybody found something they liked (or loved) on the buffet line. Price is... More

loved the seafood buffet, the food choices were plenty and everything as fresh. the price is a lil high for a family of 4 , we would've been back at least one more time during our vacation if price wasn't so much but the food itself and the service was worth it!! will return next time in ocmd.

The service was wonderful. Cheerful and attentive wait staff. We went to the buffet at 6 p.m. Food was dry, over cooked, and didn't taste very good. My husband and I both had one alcoholic beverage, the buffet and tip. Total came to $100. We are not strangers to eating out and we have been known to spend that much... More

We visited the original Phillips Seafood Restaurant at 2004 Philadelphia Ave in OC. I will tell you to start with that the food is pricey but you can't beat the quality of the seafood. I had the crabcake dinner - all backfin meat and my wife had the Rockfish stuffed with crab imperial. Both were excellent. We had eaten at... More

The best thing I can say about our trip to Phillp's this past Saturday was that the food was hot, we were able to eat and get out quickly and our waitress was friendly. The taste and quality is definately not what it was 20 years ago...it is just average. Disappointed with the Maryland Crab soup....just vegetable soup. The fried... More
