I had the fish tacos and they were delicious. Partner had pork sandwich and was a little disappointed. Service good and nice location.

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

Went to Phil's with my folks on a Saturday night. I knew, even in January, that restaurants in Saugatuck fill up early, so we were there at 5:45. We got the last table (up by the front door). Mom had the daily special, Buffalo with Kale, squash, wild mushrooms, in a molasses demiglaze. She absolutely loved it. The wife got... More

Love the ambiance! Food was great. Service fast and friendly. Today I had the fish tacos... Yummy! Fish prepared to perfection and served with fresh salsa, chopped cabbage, avocado slices and chips.. Very filling brought half of it home. Also had a cup of their homemade chili.. Yum!

We had heard Phil's was great. Wasn't overly impressed. Small and dark. food was ok! Would have liked more selection on the menu.

Here with family and friends for lunch. Nice pub feel and menu. Perch was fried perfectly and not greasy. Huge portion of fries. My daughter enjoyed her fish tacos. Burgers also good. Gorgonzola appetizer has an overpowering flavor even for a blue cheese lover. Definitely worth a visit.

Fish tacos were good and more than I could eat. All of us were satisfied with the food. Restrooms are hard to find. Ladies room was most difficult. Our waitress was average but when she brought the bill she gave us one bill for the table. When asked to separate it she gave look and said it will be a... More

You only get to eat so many meals in your lifetime. Make Phil's one of them. Saugatuck is typically a summer destination and the place was packed for lunch. All of the food came out hot which can be a rarity at other restaurants. My son who is a big eater had the perch basket and couldn't finish. The chicken... More

That is what Phil's feels like. We have a home in the area and have lunch here often, although in summer and some fall and spring weekends the wait is simply too long. Which isn't the fault of Phil 's! It is the very definition of a small town bar in appearance, but with portobello mushroom fries and tuna poke... More
