“Local diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Loved the early morning breakfast special. It is great to have a 'local" establishment to enjoy breakfast in. Highly recommend this non-chain restaurant!

“Great local spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

For years, Phil's was were all the URI students went for breakfast. Now, it's morphed into a very neat, sort of funky local venue. The food is great and so are the prices! What's best is in the summer they have a roof top terrace which is just lovely.

“Pure Rhode Island !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

If you are really hungry for breakfast, Phil"s is the place to go. A real down to earth, no frills, sit at the counter or in a booth restaurant. I try to hit it once a week for breakfast only. That breakfast can last me till dinner. Not to be missed and the price is right.

“Can't go wrong!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Although we are locals, we've only experienced Phil's for breakfast - so far! Now that tourist season is over, we are looking forward to trying their dinners. If the dinner food is on par with the breakfast food, we know we will not be disappointed. In busy times, may have to wait for a table, but once seated, service and food are both wonderful. It is a little noisy, but that is part of the charm - you are still able to carry on a conversation. Portions are extremely generous and the coffee is excellent (endless refills). Love their veggie omlets! Oh, and prices are very reasonable! Can't wait to return.

“Great Breakfast in R.I.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Referred by a co-worker, and very glad we listened! Laid back/casual and a bit on the loud side... great place to go with the kids. Seemed like awhile for the food to come... but probably because the flat top grill is right in front of you and you get really hungry seeing and smelling the great food. The Cinnabon French Toast was amazing!
