Good selection! Great waitress! Poor crab quality!

Price isn't bad but the crab quality was poor. I liked the fact that they have a kids section. Our waitress was enthusiastic and super nice! Service means a lot to me!

Phillips is known for their seafood in many cities. This is no exception. They have a seafood buffet that is supposed to be great. We chose to eat off the menu and had no complaints at all. The portions are huge.

It was not liked we remembered it to be. It was not crowded on a Sunday night. The crab bisque was amazing. I had fried chicken it was great. My wife and son had the crab imperial which they enjoyed.

Love the seafood buffet. The dining area we sat in was very cold. The food got cold if you didn't hurry and eat it. Told the waitress it was too cold and she sais when it fills up it will warm up it didn't. The desserts were not very good. I always love their choc chip cookies. There were none.... More
