Food was good and service was excellent. Phillip's food is not quite up to the quality they had a few years ago. Still good, though.

I've had the buffet and it was wonderful, but way too much for me to eat, so we used the regular restaurant... which wasn't as good as the buffet.

We have been here a few times over the years, and it never disappoints. A large selection of seafood and carved meats. We also really enjoyed the pasta station that is made to order. We also love crab legs. The only thing that we were a little disappointed with in our last visit was that they did not have cold... More

Went for Buffett $35 for adults but kids 3 and under were free and other children $10 so that made it manageable Still not really creative for the price for adults. Don't think we'd go there again.

We just ate there Saturday evening. The servers were very attentive and helpful. Huge menu made choosing difficult. I had twin lobster tails that were just perfect. My friend said the lump crab meat was wonderful as well. I cannot wait until we go back next year!

We were disappointed in our dinner. The crab cakes had shells. The service was so slow and it was not crowded. Should have gone to the other Phillips.

We made the mistake of ordering the buffet, so I can't comment on the regular meals. We've eaten at quite a few buffets. Our problem with this one is that a lot of the choices looked and tasted dried out and it wasn't worth the price. Several items ran out and were slowly replenished. We went on a Monday night...

This place was recommended to us by one of the hotel staff at Sea Bay resort. We weren't disappointed at all. My son , husband and myself ate a lot. There might have been one or two item on the buffet we didn't like but that is normal when presented with a range of item. We went here as soon... More
