Huge selection of food items. Awesome lobster mac and cheese. Pizza is also good. Menu will cover everyone in your family

For a place to be popular there has to be value. Almost all of the omelettes were $12 and that's with no drink. There were no breakfast specials that were posted or told to us. With a drink, tax, and a tip that will put...you back $20 for breakfast. The tax is 10 percent which is double what we pay in Wisconsin. Overpriced for my budget. Maybe Snowbirds have deep pockets.More

Phil's has a true diner atmosphere. Its decor is '50s with Coca Cola memorabilia decorating all of the walls. '50s music plays in the background, low enough to enjoy and still hold a conversation (thank you!). Our server was attentive, and our meals arrived quickly....I ordered the Lobster and Shrimp Tacos. My meal came with three tacos that were overflowing with seafood. They were excellent. The mango salsa that topped them was tasty. The tacos were accompanied by rice and beans. My daughter started with a bowl of clam chowder, one of the two soups offered that day, followed by the Shrimp and Avocado Salad. The clam chowder was a decent sized bowl, and she said it was excellent. Her salad with lemon herb vinaigrette was quite large, and the shrimp were of a good size. We were impressed with the variety of offerings on the menu, which made it hard to decide what to enjoy. If you have never been to a diner, or if you enjoy eating at diners, Phil's is a great choice!More

We have found over the years that breakfast can be hard to mess up but it is equally hard to do really well. This is the “not mess up” type. Read reviews, hoping for a little imagination, didn’t find it. Omelettss cooked hard, chunks of...potatoes chunked, pancakes on the heavy side, and “Benedict” with bland sauces and a thin slice of ham from a package. Nice to sit outside in the sun and staff were agreeable but the best breakfast in town - hardly. Fried things we have found don’t have to taste like they were deep fried - breakfast can be creative but not here when we visited.More

Very cute. Friendly service. Ate here twice so far and will be back I'm sure. Food was good, both for breakfast and for lunch.

We were seated very quickly, even though the restaurant was very busy. They took our order almost immediately and the food came in record time. Service was amazing!!

Great food. Reasonable prices. Good service. Friendly people. This just became one of my "go to" spots for out of town guests. We'll take them to the fountain (walking distance away) and then to Phil's. Breakfasts are super. The Rueben is also great and get...the potato salad as the side dish.More

This place used to be a great diner for lunch. I’ve been many times over the years but this last visit was horrendous. Coffee was cold, host didn’t even notice we were there, soup was cold and sent back. They microwaved it and sent it...back (we know because the crackers we added were still in it) then it was congealed. Ordered a buffalo chicken wrap with crispy chicken, got grilled and got about 10 fries. Not sure what was going on with the kitchen that day.More

I've been here with my son, as well as friends and wow, not only do you have a view of the fountain, they also have a pet friendly patio! I had ordered eggs Benedict, totally awesome, as well as egg white omelettes, both were great!...They also have a nice, cozy dinner atmosphere, and serve cocktails. I will be returning!!More
