Dinner after Cedar Point

Small place with wonderful people. They said to try the sauce so I got a combination of lasagna and spaghetti. They smothered both with a rich tomato sauce. Sauce to be honest was a little heavy, needed a more tangy flavor for my taste. But I ate the whole thing. Bread was plain white bread... read more

If you love homemade Italian food, Phil's Inn Restaurant in Port Clinton, Ohio is the place to go. They have the most amazing lasagna and sauce. The homemade bread is delicious also. 19 years ago my husband and I spent our honeymoon at Lake Erie and ate at Phil's. When we went back a week ago, it was as great... More

My aunts and uncles have been there and for our anniv. we went there and took our daughter. It is a small homey place. We had the perch and was awesome and big portions. Then my aunt and uncle got some kind of sandwich with huge sliced homemade bread and cheese and onions plus sides. The only problem is all... More

OMG! I just had the best lasagna I've ever eaten here at Phil's! Huge portion that left me stuffed. The sauce was fantastic! It's a small diner sitting across the street from Lake Erie and well-worth stopping here to eat. I HIGHLY recommend Phil's!

My mother and I visited Phil's today. Been going here 50+ years. There was a problem with the pos printer, but the food was as good as I remembered. I had the spaghetti special and my mother had the fish and chips.

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 miles away, so when we are in Port Clinton, we frequently... 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
