Not one to recommend eating seafood at an airport, but this place actually serves good seafood. I highly recommend the lobster bisque.

Poor food quality, poor service. You are better off going to a vending machine and sitting in the terminal.

I had the crab cake and shrimp platter with mashed potatoes and side salad...The food was great,and the crab cake was amazing. I wish I had gotten the double crab cake instead of the crab cake and shrimp. The only thing that would have made it better would have been a beer, not their fault, but due to the odd... More

Because they serve real crab and because this isn't a massive intergalactic chain I thought, wow, I'm actually going to get something good to eat before my flight, but alas. Tough, chewy past-its-shelf-life salmon, a Cobb salad with a very small amount of actually good fresh crab on top of a huge pile of lifeless lettuce and soggy bacon and... More

We love Phillips! Crab cakes are phenomenal. We have eaten them at Liberty Airport, Baltimore Harbor and Annapolis Harbor.

With some extra time at the airport I took a rare opportunity to try the breakfast here before a flight for a business trip. The waiter decisively steered me towards the crab cakes and eggs dish instead of the omelet with crab cakes (or something similar). It was absolutely delicious. The eggs didn't have that powdery taste and texture I've... More

We ate here after driving straight through from the Catskills to EWR. We were early for our flight and had plenty of time to enjoy a meal. The service was very efficient and the quality of the food was very good for an airport venue. They were able to handle special requests. The steamed vegetables were raw but, except for... More

While traveling, we stopped at this restaurant in Newarks´s Liberty Airport for a quick meal. The location was tastefully decorated, pleasant, and welcoming. Our waitress was extremely friendly and made our time there pleasant. The windows also gave the restaurant an open feeling with lots of light. Our order came promptly, and we were not disappointed by the quality of... More

I had not previously heard of Philips Seafood but I will definitely remember it. I had a FANTASTIC mahi mahi with a great sauce (basil/curry?). The staff and manager were attentive and when the manager overheard that I like spicy food he insisted on bringing me some of their pineapple sauce, which wa also incredibly good. We had a couple...
