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

PHILLIP's SEAFOOD HOUSE on 141st Street is now my #1 Buffet in OCMD!!! For many, many years my husband and I have always made a point to have dinner at Phillip's every time we were in OCMD. Sadly, the last time we visited in 2012 we ate at the Buffet at Phillip's Crab House on 21st Street and had horrible... More

My parents and I went to this location just as it opened at 4:00pm. From 4-5pm, they offer four dollars off their buffet price, which makes it one of the less expensive quality seafood buffets in town. We were greeted by our waitress, Laci, who has been one of the only people that we've met down in the food service... More

Arrived around 5:30 on a Sunday night and was seated within 15 minutes. Had a wide variety of food, loved the crabs (all you can eat), shrimp and the bread pudding was awesome. Was pricy at $33 each for the buffet. Nice to go once during our week long stay but probably eating fast food rest of week to keep... More

Upon our arrival we were greeted at the door with the statement "Having the buffet?". My husband asked about the menu and the hostess ignored him and took us to a table. We assumed we would be given a menu then. We waited for 15 minutes before our server came over. We were not given a menu so we elected... More
