Bloody Mary's and Burgers are amazing!

I love their burgers and their blood mary drinks. It is a really cool place inside - very old looking bar and always packed. It is well worth the wait.

We had heard this restaurant is busy at night so we stopped in for a late lunch after hiking in the nearby State Park. We had a delightful covered/shaded table outside where we were promptly served. Being thirsty from a long day of hiking, our server was very attentive and kept our glasses filled with refills of water and pop.... More

I had the recommended fish tacos. Good, but not award winning. The service was great. Our waitress always had a refill ready before I could ask. The atmosphere is what makes this place unique.

We decided to take a ride to Saugatuck since we had not been there in a while. We decided to try Phil's Bar & Grill and were glad we did. The food & service were excellent. We sat outside on there small patio and had a nice relaxing meal. My wife decided on a appetizer for her meal she ordered... More

I had read positive reviews about Phil's online and decided to try it for myself. We did have to wait about an hour to get seated, but when the line is out the door, you know the food is usually worth waiting for...plus it was a Sunday evening in July. Our waitress was attentive even though it was extremely busy.... More

Every time I come back to Saugatuck my friend and I meet for lunch at Phil's. A split of champagne, boasted chicken breast with sliced fried potatoes. If the weather cooperates, sit outside and enjoy the quiet amid the bustle. Good food and friendly staff

The food and service were great. The gorgonzola ale dip was fantasic, as was the perch basket. Our server was great about us splitting the basket and brought it out on two separate plates for us. We will definitely be stopping back if we are in town again!

I had a fabulous salmon dish, and my wife had the best filet mignon she ever had. Great service, too. We had to wait a bit but they were spot on as to how long it would be.

Looks like an ordinary bar but the menu is great with really imaginative specials. But also definitely consider the "famous" broasted chicken or the lobster salad. Really friendly and efficient service. Open year-round.
