Well, when I found out about how great this place was, I didn't mind the hour drive from where we live. And Phil's did not disappoint! We were a group of six and ordered four different appetizers: calamari, gorgonzola dip, tuna, and a pizza. Every one of them was outstanding! The tastes were over-the-top! You can tell they use fresh... More

In town, always busy, Nice drinks, numerous items on the menu that are consistently good. Specials that are interesting. If you like chicken the BROASTED is a real treat!

We went back twice during our stay at Wickwood for the Nutty Salad. Excellent. The bartender makes a great drink!

Met a friend of mine for dinner at Phil's a week ago. The restaurant is small, with on street parking only as far as I could tell. I drove from about an hour south of Saugatuck so I was a little disappointed when I first walked in and saw what a small hole in the wall this place is. I... More

In no way will you be disappointed at Phil's. You have to check out their broasted chicken for sure. Their ribs are unbelievable as are the fish tacos. Don't be afraid of anything on the menu. It is a pub so expect it to be crazy noisy, part of the charm!

My wife and I went to Saugatuck for a weekend anniversary get away. We ate dinner at Phil's. Yeah the wait was a little longer than they said, but well worth it. The food was great. We had the Portabella mushroom fries, ribs, and perch sandwich. All was great! A lot of fresh made food. Our server, Liz, was awesome.... More

I don't often give thumbs up to salmon dishes, as I've been spoiled by some of the best cedar plank west coast salmon cooked at Earls in Vancouver or Victoria. Until now! The salmon at Phil's with a potato topping was absolutely to die for. It had just enough of a crunch from the broiling to add texture yet not... More

Let me admit that while we were waiting well over an hour to be seated on a cold February Friday evening, I was thinking that my review would be less than favorable. However, the food is good - even if it is a bit on the salty side. Both my pasta dish and the broasted chicken that some friends at... More
