It doesn't look like much on the inside and it is not a trendy updated restaurant. However, their spaghetti sauce is the best I have ever tasted and you get a great portion. If you like spaghetti, you have to try Phil's. It has been around for years.

We had a fine dinner at Phil's. Our waiter was terrific. The food was quite good and the atmosphere OK. This feels like a place that's been here a long time and that can be a good thing all by itself.

My family and I have ate here for as long as I can remember and I'm sure they came here before I was in the picture. As a kid I loved the triple decker PB &J and watching the fish tanks. As an adult I realize the place hasn't been updated in awhile and the menu is pretty much still... More

Food has not changed for years--just good old Italian food. The place is definitely not fancy. The service is good and the prices are average.

We have been eating at Phil's as long as I can remember. At least once a summer we take a family trip up to Port Clinton to get our spaghetti at Phil's. My grandparents started this tradition when my father was a kid, my parents took us, and now we still go with my parents. I have pictures of my... More

The place is popular, but was kind of mess. We were seated at a table next to a table used to store napkins, silverware, carry-out containers and such. The waitress was robust and articulate,but it felt like the food took a long while and was utterly average. It was clean if untidy and the food did not harm us, so... More

Best spaghetti sauce I've ever had (except for my Sicilian Grandmother's). Been eating there since the 1970's, when we worked in Port Clinton during Summers. Even the bread is great... Stopped by last month and took home 5 of quarts of their great sauce so I can enjoy it over the winter. Their lunch menu prices are very reasonable and... More

This place seems like it has been around since the 50s. Good food, good service, friendly staff. It was ok. It could use some updating to bring it into this century, but I have no real complaint about that. The spghetti was awesome.

I have been told for years I have to try this place. So I did and I was very disappointed. My wife and daughter both got spaghetti dinners. Both of them got a clump of uncooked noodles in their dinners. It was pretty gross. I got the perch dinner. Word of advice to Phil's inn. Change your grease. You could... More
