My wife and I have eaten at the King Phllip many, many times going back as far as the the mid 1990's. We lived in the area for several years and ate there on a regular basis. The food was always delicious and the service excellent. Even after moving away from the area in 2006 we would meet up with friends once a year at the KP for dinner.
The past couple years I had noticed the restaurant wasn't as busy as usual. The food was good but didn't seem as top-notch as in the past. This past September however it became very clear things have changed. We met our friends for dinner and my wife ordered an angel hair pasta plate. For the first time in 34 years of marriage she sent a plate of food back! In her words, "it was disgusting". I had the chicken parmesan plate which was heaped with food but was mediocre at best. Overall a terrible experience. Only saving grace is the waitress was excellent.
We stayed at the King Phillip for 2 nights, which may have been 3 but due to the woman in the office who was rude to my wife, we cut it short. The motel in general is looking rundown. The inside wasn't too bad but the outside is filthy with siding coming off in a few places. The outdoor ice cream bar, which was added a few years back, was a rather cheesy move for what was once a nice restaurant. Overall very disappointed with the King Phillip and likely won't be back.
