This middle eastern restaurant does big lamb chops and stuffed cabbage rolls really well. Some people on the web recommended it after I had searched for the infamous Bishops of Lawrence, a standout in the 70's and 80's. The Phoenician did the chops in the broiler just as well, fantastic. Decor is comfortable, but a bit old and anonymous. Don't... More

When visiting this area the Phoenician was the restaurant at the top of the list. The baked stuffed shrimp was my go to dinner. This time that previously delicious stuffing was like eating a mouthful of paste with no flavor. The usuallty coarse delicacy was gone, there were no bits of walnuts, no flavor of garlic and lemon. I couldn't... More

My wife and I got together with another couple for dinner on a Saturday. I've never been here before but the other couple loved it so we decided to meet here. The ambiance is definitely family dining but the food is fantastic! We ordered the hoummos appetizer which paired very well with the yummy pita bread they give to each... More

Both were exceptional as always. The Salad is even one of my favorites as they Blue cheese dressing is... More

First, I really like this restaurant. They really do a pretty good job of carrying on the Bishops tradition. Went there on a recent Friday night and spent over $300 for four. Of course two of us had the excellent 3# lobsters. Now, what's my beef? Well, the owner Bassam is usually present when we go, but never does intervene... More

Okay, I visited this restaurant on a weekend with my wife, daughter & her fiancée the first time around and wanted the Prime Rib. The Prime Rib was sold out so I settled for the Lamb Chops. This time around I went on a Wednesday night with a very close friend and I finally got my Prime Rib. Now I... More

I grew up with Bishops in Lawrence. It was one of the top ten restaurants in the country. The Arabic plate, the Syrian( now known as pita) bread, lamb on the stick, French fries and Baked Alaska are all memorable. Phoenician's is the best. They have replicated everything perfectly . I haven't lived there in 28 years, but my dad... More

My wife and I decided to join my daughter and her fiancée for Dinner on Saturday night. It was rather late so we chose a place close by I have to agree with another diner's review that it has the atmosphere of a funeral home and a little on the dark side. The food now that's a different story. We... More
