My husband and I visites Phil's and ordered two burgers. He had a regular with sauteed onions and mushrooms added and I had the Blackened burger. They were HUGE and absolutely delicious! The potato wedges were very very good as well. The lemonade was so tasty. Our server was A+! We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and can't wait to return!!!... More

So, heads up--Phil's looks like a hole in the wall or an old movie theater. It's neither. We learned of Phil's from our B&B host and wow, was she right. This place rocks. Fresh, creative, delicious Midwestern cuisine--yum. We ate the Gorgonzola ale dip w lawash chips (bubbly goooood), walleye entree w fabulous potatoes and little Brussel sprouts, and perch... More

This restaurant has an awesome bar and the atmosphere of the whole restaurant is very relaxing with brick wall interior. The wait staff are great. The food is delicious. I had the perch sandwich which I loved. My husband had the cuban sandwich which he is still talking about. This is a great place to dine and fun to be... More

We visited Phil's 4/25...it was busy & worth the wait. Packed and bursting at the seams, I watched the wait staff give great service as the navigated the throngs of locals and tourists enjoying a bleak, cold night out. I can't imagine how busy this place will be in a few months. Fabulous salad, fall-off-the-bone ribs & a great pasta... More

Compared to our dinner the night before which was not good, Phil's was great! It was recommended by some locals the night before while in Holland. It was a great choice! Atmosphere, friendly staff. Walleye was superb as was the boasted chicken! We will return when we are back in the area.

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
