Best Spaghetti

The outside, has been redone and looks great. The inside looks worn, but clean. Service is very good. Very good coffee, and the portions of spaghetti are generous. Their meatballs are superb. They have all the right seasonings. Salad dressings are homemade, as are the raviolis. We live 60... read more

Every year I wait for Phils to open back up. I am not a fan of any tomatoe based pasta but Phils Spaghetti is one of a kind. They also serve fresh bread with their spaghetti. Phils is one of the few good places to eat in the surrounding area. It isnt fancy, hasnt changed in years, but some things... More

We stopped here for an early lunch last weekend. The service was great and food was good. We didn't have anything Italian but our sandwiches and coleslaw were delicious. Our kids enjoyed their food as well. The food came out of the kitchen fairly quick. I can imagine this place being really busy when the weather is warmer. It had... More

The spaghetti sauce is still amazing as I remember! Meatballs huge and good! Italian dressing is a fav. Didn't have perch or chopped sirloin but they looked good. They need to go back to making pizzas the original way. It was my favorite all my life. It's nothing fancy for sure but my family still LOVES IT!!!

This is my favorite spaghetti sauce of all time. Love their celery seed dressing too. My son had the perch dinner and loved it. Running a sweeper on the rug once in awhile would be an added plus. Will eat here every time I am in Port Clinton!!

Great homemade sauce that really makes the pasta dishes shine. Though on the sweet side, their sauce is very unique. They also make their own pasta and several of their salad dressings. It does however need a major facelift and remodeling on the inside. Too dark, too old looking.

To start off with, the hostess brought us to a dirty table. Then once we opened up the menus, the selection was very limited. There was one salad option aside from the regular side salad. And speaking of salad, very poor quality, all ice berg lettuce. So if you want a healthier option or are on a diet don't come... More

Its a small place with a mall parking lot with an even smaller menu - but what it lacks in size it makes up quality of food and service. The lasagna was excellent and a fair portion. Though I liked the sauce (I can assure you, its nothing like what you'd find at Olive Garden or other places), it might... More
