Walked in took a table we liked, interesting menu. Shared the pizza appetizer and I had the fish Tacos and husband the chicken pasta. Both were good. The salsa could have had a little more kick for my taste and the pasta was very rich but in a good way, nicely balanced. The staff were friendly and the place wasn't... More

We ate dinner at Phil's on a Friday night. It was A-MAZ-ING! We met some interesting people. We had great drinks...reasonably priced with a generous amount of alcohol. We had broasted chicken and Phil's pasta. The food was terrific! The pasta may have been one of the best foods I've ever eaten. The oil paintings on the walls are done... More

Neighborhood bar and eatery. Decent menu and bar. Good spot for a casual dinner or lunch. Burgers and ribs were great.

Saugatuck, MI is a worthy, foodie town with some very good restaurants. Two of the very best are The Belvedere and Phil’s Bar & Grill. They are both great and polar opposites. This review concerns Phil’s Bar & Grill, but also read my review on The Belvedere. Phil’s food is everything you wouldn’t expect from a bar. It is foodie-worthy... More

I've been to Saugatuck many times, and Phill's is always busy. My mom and I went early - before 5 on a Sunday night in October, and we still had to wait 5-10 minutes. By the time we left, there was an hour wait. That's when you know a place is good - even in the off season, it's in... More

This has got to be one of the best spots in Saugatuck. The Potato Crusted Salmon is as good as you'll find anywhere in the country. The service is equally as good. We arrived on a Friday night @ 6:00pm and were told we had a 45 minute wait. We were seated within 20 minutes. Our server was the rookie... More

Wife and I stopped in for lunch after enjoying morning walk in town. Neat old style bar/restaurant. Both of us ordered the burger and we weren't disappointed. Really enjoyed the potato wedges and nice touch with the animal crackers with the check. Wish we weren't driving back home or would have definitely enjoyed one of the many craft beers they... More

Met someone here who was local and suggested it. Very relaxing place for lunch. Little bar and restaurant with a portobello burger that was fantastic. The plain portobello sandwich looked pretty inviting too. Good choice of libations and very friendly service.

Not a big place. Friendly staff and it is apparent that they know their regulars well. Ordered two main plates: a rib eye that was perfectly done with mashed potatoes, chard, and sweet potatoes. The other main was salmon crusted with shredded potatoes and served with rapini. Perfect! The vegetables were flavorful and the salmon was moist! Creme Brulee was... More
