Having practically grown up in Ocean City Maryland and having been to the original Phillips on Philadelphia Ave more times than I can count through the years, I was delighted to see a Phillips outpost at Newark Liberty recently. Waiting a couple hours for a layover suddenly had a benefit. Being right near our gate was a bonus. In short,... More

If you see a Phillips Crab House you must stop to eat. The food is great and I had the crab and shrimp sandwich with steamed vegetables. Keep in mind you can't compare this food to a real sea food restaurant on the shore. But it is the best airport food I have had.

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
