Should be ashamed to charge over $30 for lukewarm crab cakes that were more filler and shells than crab, lukewarm, overcooked seafood, lukewarm undercooked vegetables, and deserts that tasted awful! Need new cooks and/or a better cookbook! Brit our server was very good. Will never leave my hard earned dollar here again-even LONG JOHN SILVERS or RED LOBSTER would be... More

Phillips is a chain. I'm not going to write home and say this is inspired, life changing seafood, and I think it's a little over priced. However, you know what to expect when you go - the food is good, though I think the menu could use a few healthier options; there's a buffet, which is also good and reliable;... More

Was there for dinner buffet on Tues September 9, around 7:30 pm. I realize it was after labor day but the buffet was not great. Have been hearing about this place for years. Assortment of food was ok, desserts were terrible like they were sitting out all day as it seemed most of the food was. Crab legs were good!... More

The food was good and the selection was great. Lots of food and for a buffet, the crab legs, clams and oysters were not bad. We ate lots and had a great time. Our server, Molly was very good and attentive.

I went here last week with a seafood lover who went for the all-you-can eat seafood buffet and since I'm a vegetarian, I assumed a salad would be my only option. We mentioned to the server that I was a vegetarian and found out they had a salad, pasta and dessert version of the buffet for less than half of... More

We dined here recently, after not being in the area for many years. Phillips has a good reputation in general, but our experience was poor, and I realized that Phillips’ specialty is now marketing. One of our entrées was good (broiled scallops), but the other was fried shrimp, which were poor quality and likely made from pre-battered frozen bulk quantities.... More

I gave a 4* for the crab legs at the buffet! A lot of people come for those! it's a good deal for 34$ all-you-can eat! we also tried the other foods - they were good and you can find everything you want including dessert! But we mainly focused on the legs - had 4-5 rounds! :) huge line at... More
