What a wonderful surprise! Best Brie Burger ever! The lunch sea bass was a good sized portion for $9, a very fair price. We checked out the dinner menu and will, definitely, be back. The ambience is very modern log cabin, making it fun, too.

Arrived on a Wednesday night... with reservations. Place was CRAMMED. Way too loud to hear the person on the other side of the table. From time of ordering, food took 1 hr 45 min. Took at least 30 minutes before we could order apps or food. Not one person in our party was impressed in the slightest by the food.... More

It's great to have some somewhat authentic greek food in Stillwater, and the food is good, but I have had multiple meals here ruined by the fact that when it gets busy they stuff ya in like sardines. I am rather tall, but there have been nights where I am kicking the person I am dining with, and I am... More

We were a bit tired of spending so much on restaurant meals all the time. Sometimes, it is worth it, sometimes not. Phil's gives you such good food for not too much money. My husband had the fish special which was fabulous. Son had the Greek sampler plate. So much food and delicious. Server could not have been more pleasant,... More

There server was prompt to provide us menus and water and to take our drink order. After that though he was not very attentive. I ordered the lamb chop... More

From the outside this restaurant is not impressive, and it's location is not special. But the service is tremendous, and the food, in variety, cost, and flavor, is exceptional. My wife had the Corinthian Chicken and I had an 8 oz tri-tip steak. Both were mouth watering and inexpensive. We would go here often if we lived in the area.

We dropped in for dinner on a Thursday night during a visit to Stillwater. We were seated immediately, however, the other diners were all so festive (loud) that we asked if we could be seated in the quieter back dining room. Within seconds, we were happily relocated and had a wonderful time. The best walleye I've ever had (and I've... More

Consistently very good. I've eaten here dozens of times and never had a bad meal. Love the filet with the mushrooms and Gorgonzola. Upgrade the salad for a few dollars. The Greek or pear are my favorites. Soups are always wonderful as well. Great bartenders. As others have mentioned it is always busy, tightly spaced and can be quite noisy.... More

We had the prime rib (hubby) and shrimp (me), and both were delicious. Atmosphere is fairly casual, and restaurant is very rustic inside...which we love. It is kind of loud as there a lot of tables in not so large of a space, and with the rustic wood floors and ceilings, there isn't any "noise buffer". We didn't mind as... More

I was with family for my dad's birthday. Everyone loved their meals. I loved the lobster, by the far the best in the area! It does get little busy with how small of a place it is but it's well worth it!
