I have to say YUM everytime we have been to Phils. I don't know that they take reservations. There is never anyone at the door and I think it is first come first serve. Awesome food!!

This was a really fun place. The atmosphere was casual but fun. We got the broasted chicken meal and it was really delicious. You got two pieces of white chicken (breast and wing) or four pieces of dark (thigh and leg). Plus thick potato wedges and coleslaw. The waitress was great!

Great atmosphere. Sat outside on a beautiful day, so that was nice. Large beer and wine selection. Absolutely loved the warm Gorgonzola appetizer--yummmmmy! Also got a vegetable quesadilla that sounded better than it tasted. It was just ok-- ingredients seemed fresh-- refried beans, avocado, cheese, asparagus, cilantro... But it needed something else-- we tried salt, but that didn't do the... More

While we were waiting for our table at Phil's, a local suggested that my father ordered the chicken. During our wait, we noticed many people picking up chicken orders. Several members of our party ordered it for dinner and were not even slightly disappointed, it was delicious as was the pan fried perch. They serve it with an incredible homemade... More

Stopped by on a Sunday night and the place was packed. Told us it was an hour wait, understandably so because this isn't a large place. Cozy with great background music. We ended up with a couple of spots at the bar with the help of the gentleman at the front door which was just fine. Very accommodating. Had a... More

I've tried other items on Phil's menu over the years, and everything is good, but I always come back to the broasted chicken. The wings are also really good. We try to at least stop in here for a drink every time we are in town. If you sit at the bar, try to sit in the corner by the... More

You might have to wait a little to get in depending on the time of the year, but the food and experience is worth the wait. Tables have butcher block paper on them with a supply of crayons so you can draw to your hearts content while you wait for your food. Service is excellent, and the food is great!... More

After all the great reviews I'm sure our visit was a fluke??! First off the food was well prepared and full of flavor, no problems here. My first issue was with the quality of service we received. We were seated at the table to the immediate left of the door next to the bar. The bar was packed and the... More

Had a marvelous dinner at Phil's on a Sunday evening. The special of the night was salmon with smashed potatoes and risotto-it was delicious. Also had the broasted chicken (brought back memories from childhood)-and it was great. We are bar diners and got in before the crowd (6ish) - Jimmy the bartender does a great job and has a wonderful... More
