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

I had the best hamburger and martini ever. The bar is a happenin' place in Saugatuck. Very friendly Bartender and locals were great to chit chat with. Food was pretty good too.

The food is delicious. The dishes are big enough to share if you're so inclined. The place was warm and vibrant. Service was very nice.

We stop in at Phil's several times a year and always are treated to good food and an enjoyable time. Even in the winter you will want to get to Phil's either a little early or a little late for dinner or you will get to wait a while. The place is small and cozy and a hangout for the... More
