The food is good but nothing spectacular, you do get large portions of food and the prices are fair, depending on what you order. P.S. you go to the counter to order your food and they will give you a number to place on your table and they will bring you your food.

We live in the area and periodically take out of town guests to Phil's as it is a very popular and unique local attraction. Part of the attraction is its rustic atmosphere, but on our last trip there to but fresh sea food to take home, the rustic atmosphere had deteriorated into unsanitary considtions. The bulk clams and mussels had... More

The food is great, for the price it's fantastic. I had the grilled swordfish and my wife the grilled salmon. For $20, I got a good sized swordfish steak, grilled perfectly with rice, salad and toast. All the portions were very generous. While we had grilled options, I did see a few of the fried fish offerings. I wish I... More

I had a great meal here! The clientele are super friendly, and it's just a pleasure to enjoy the food and the conversation. My only complaint was that I had ordered a beer to go with my food, and it was not delivered to my table. It turns out the customers have to pick it up at the bar, but... More

Huge fresh portions of food in a wonderful setting! (Go to the back and sit at the benches by the ocean! Just watch for scavenging seagulls!) I had the softshell crab sandwich and my wife has the fish & chips. Delicious! Definitely a must revisit on our next visit!

Phil's seems to be really popular, so I guess they must have some dishes that keep bringing people back. Unfortunately, we didn't seem to choose those dishes. Both my husband and myself got fish sandwiches and shared a fried shrimp platter and French fried artichoke hearts. The shrimp was super expensive, $19.99 for 12 shrimp and French fries. The artichoke... More

We always come here when we're in the area. Manhattan clam chowder, fresh Dungeness crab, fabulous chippino, fresh blue points and a great menu - can't ask for more.

In California so figured we had to have a really great fish taco. Saw signs for halibut in the area of this fishing community so when we ordered our fish tacos they were absolutely delicious. We were very happy!

we lunched here after a whale watching trip, mid afternoon midweek it was quiet, no delays compared to a previous visit when it was jammed. We stuck to the appetisers menu and the smaller size portions, four of us ate well for $80, crab salad, mussels, chowder, ceviche etc. A good selection of craft beers too well kept and served.

Phil's is very different. It can best be described as High End Fast Food. This place is order up at the counter, get a number and find a table. They find you number and bring your food out to you. There is nothing fancy about this place. There is a huge menu to chose from. The fish and chips we... More
