Phil's is a Wakefield institution. In 2011 the business was bought and the new owner created the upstairs dining room and the deck that overlooks historic Main Street in Wakefield. Having a beer or cocktail at the upstairs bar on a sunny summer afternoon is a real treat. It is also a fun place to go for brunch. The best... More

The place I usually go for breakfast was closed so I decided to go back to Phil's which I had tried years ago. I am a local so try to support local restaurants. I figured with all of the hoopla over this place, the food must be better than average .I was greatly disappointed. This was likely the worst breakfast... More

We live about 10 miles away but drive here for breakfast at least once a week. It has all the "normal" breakfast items at realistic prices. We have never had a bad meal here.

I have been eating at Phil's since I was in high school. That said, there are some great aesthetic updates throughout such as the new outdoor dining area, more contemporary dining and bar area upstairs,and historical Wakefield decorative touches that make Phil's less diner, more family-style eatery. The meals are inexpensive, food good but nothing too fancy, and the service... More

We have been going to Phil's for years for breakfast and have never had a bad experience. We decided to try the rooftop dining during lunch. I ordered the whole belly clam roll for $14.95 since we were so close to the ocean and I assumed I would get a nice meal. When the waitress brought the clam roll to... More

Great breakfast place. The pancakes were outstanding. Good service as well and centrally located. Plenty of parking behind the building. The place was very clean as well.

Me and my girlfriends come for breakfast and lunch whenever we go out to eat. Servers are always wonderful and accomodating. It's more comfortable to sit in the loft, however, in comparison to the dining room or outside rooftop.

I had been wondering where all the Bluebird patrons had gone and this must be the place. We came here for breakfast, pretty late (11:00 am) and it was packed. Took a little while just to get a booth. Note: at the time, we didn't know there was a quieter place to eat upstairs, which would have made the visit... More

Happened upon this restaurant while going to Brickley's for ice cream. My family and friends were so happy that we did. The food was excellent. Great salads, sandwiches and seafood. Good selection of beers. Fun atmosphere.
