Yes, the chicken, gravy and biscuits were good. Yes, the buffet is small which means the food turns over quickly. Yes, the mashed and scolloped potatoes were good. But, NO this is common average good solid food buffet food but it was not outstanding. The carrots were straight out of a can, the meat loaf (special of the day) was... More

We grew up going to Phil's and it hasn't changed! We still get the same waitress we got 20 years ago! The chicken is sooo good and juicy with just a fantastic, light, bbq sauce. I love their chicken soup, too. They have a nice salad bar as well. The lunch buffet is a very good deal with all the... More

We order on a steady basis off your take out menu. We are always very pleased. The fall and winter soups are amazing!

Ordered off of Phil's catering menu for small Birthday party for my wife. They delivered it (only $10) and it came with everything you would need to eat and clean-up (Utensils, dishes, Napkins etc.). We ordered 1/2 chickens with 3 sides. Also included rolls/butter and a fruit platter. Everything was excellent. The only slightly negative comment I and my guests... More

Quite juicy chicken with a sort of a marinade/barbecue combination. It's just a little bit tangy but with a barbeque taste as well. It has a decent flavored rub on the outside. Lunch buffet is good and it's all you can eat.

Went there with the family. It is a very casual kid friendly place. The food was good. The quarter chicken was cooked well juicy and tender inside done just right. I thought the outside was a little over seasoned too much rosemary perhaps. That was just me some will like it more than I did. The ribs were okay but... More

I first read about Cornell chicken and Phil's Chicken House in a 2003 edition of Gourmet magazine.While planning a roadtrip from the east coast to Chicago I had to make sure the route went close to Endicott NY. The day finally arrived and there we were. It was well worth the wait. The buffet was small, but that meant dishes... More

Phil's catered a famiy reunion for about 60 people. The barbecued chicken was some of the best I ever had. Their delivery was exactly on time. The food was delivered hot. The salads were very good. They even delivered a couple of fruit plates for no additional charge. They are on my list for any future catering jobs in the... More

I have eaten here more times than I can count. In fact I used to work here when I was a kid. This is one of those places that you will crave wherever you go in life. The chicken is rotisserie and just ask for extra basting sauce on the side... I won't steer you wrong. :) As previously mentioned... More

On the advice of our niece we got a family take out dinner from here. We were staying nearby. The take out dinner consisted of chicken, mashed potatoes, cabbage salad, gravy, and biscuits. The marinated chicken was cooked to perfection as was everything else. You can eat in if you choose. The menu offered a variety but we looked at... More
