The food and atmosphere were perfect. A very nice place within walking distance of our room at Hidden Gardens. Highly recommended!

If you like fish taco's, Phil's is the place to go. I am never disappointed. Many other very good choices on the menu including Perch.

We went for lunch with our 3 kids. Everyone left happy with their meal. We ordered the calamari appetizer which was a favorite. The kids could draw on the paper tablecloth. Burgers are good as well as the fish tacos (fried). Would return again.

Our friends love this place, and it was our first visit. Short wait for a table, even on a Saturday night, an interesting menu made selection difficult.

We stopped for a mid-Sunday lunch, and the atmosphere alone was wonderful. Our bartender, Brandi, who has endured too many renditions of that song, was a tremendously good server, and the food was wonderful. A place worth returning to.

We had great apps and entrees; the bartender made us a delicious salted caramel White Russian after discussing our tastes. Service was slow, though. Pretty sure they forgot about us for awhile.

I visited Phil's in October which isn't prime season but I was really disappointed. First the entrance is strange and uncomfortable. There was a blanket hanging blocking the entrance from the restaurant. Once past the blanket I had no idea if I was supposed to seat myself or wait to be seated. When I asked the bartender his answer made... More

We went to Phil's on the recommendation by a local, we were thrilled with our experience! The food was outstanding! I had the fish tacos and my hubby had the cuban sandwich. Both were outstanding. Great atmosphere too!
