We go to the restaurant often and always love the food, but if you're looking for a great deal, order Phillips' takeout meals. My favorite is the baker's dozen shrimp meal for $13. You get coleslaw and fries with it, but they have no problem making substitutions. The seafood for two is excellent too. Their takeout specials are listed right... More

This Phillips is located at the northern part of Ocean City and offers an excellent buffet. We visited on a Friday night and didn't have to wait. This place is huge. Service was excellent. The buffet offered just about anything a person can think of to eat---plenty of meats, seafood, potatoes, rice, noodles, bread/roll items, casserole-type items, desserts, all types... More

Almost as much of a priority as the beach when we vacation at OCMD! Great variety of food and well worth the price!

This is your typical buffet with a seafood emphasis. I have been too many buffets of this quality but this was by far the most expensive buffet of this type that I have been to. I have no problem with paying high dollar for fantastic food, but this was nowhere near fantastic. I have paid as much as $75 per... More

You won't get gourmet food if you go to a buffet, but it was a good meal. Not sure it's somewhere I'd go frequently because I can get much better food elsewhere for the same or better price.

Loved the seafood buffet. I believe they had the best clam chowder I've ever eaten. Highly recommend!!

Outrageously priced for mediocre at best food. 3 ppl=100 bucks. The best thing they had was pulled pork and chicken and being a seafood restaurant that speaks volumes.

Been going to this buffet for last 5 years. Seems like it's taking a step backwards. First of all the buffet is now $34.99 (no drink, before tax and tip). I'm not convinced there's much value here. First the good. Soups are on the buffet and delicious. We like the crab bisque. Clams were very good. Good smaller size and... More

Normally when I think of a buffet, I think of cheap, over done food with bad service since no one tips because they have to get their own food and figure their server isn't worth much. Not so at Phillips, simply not so... The seafood buffet was incredible. Freshly shucked oysters, just steamed crab legs, salad so fresh the lettuce... More

I'm not much into buffets but this is a good place. The food is good and fresh there's something for everyone. A good place to take the family price isn't bad and everyone enjoyed it. Next time out I will be back.
