Phil's is the place to eat if you are in Moss Landing and you like seafood! Lots of yummy choices, from seafood tacos and enchiladas to any number of fish dishes. Great salads, too!

I think this restaurant is good. It has good clams. The spaghetti was marvelous. The fried food was pretty good. It was pretty noisy, and crowded. Don't get too much food. I guess the food is really filling. But after all, I would prefer this.

Perfect spot for casual seafood. Sometimes loud live music which is not our style but the food is always good, and most importantly fresh. Artichokes are amazing. You order your food at the counter and then they bring it out to your table according to your number you place on the table. Very casual but very fresh!!!

This is a brilliant place to come for lunch....there is a fish counter where you can buy freshly caught fish and additionally a large lunch menu with a wide selection of fish and shellfish dishes.I had halibut tacos and my partner had seafood linguine. Both were cooked to perfection using fresh and tasty fish. You will probably have to wait... More

Seafood was excellent - product was fresh and coating on deep-fried products was crunchy and thin....mmmmm......The vista of Monterey Bay was outstanding. I believe Phil's Eatery is a diamond in the ruff that not too many people are aware of and is well worth the effort to venture off the 101 to investigate.

I had the cioppino and oh my it was amazing!! So much fresh seafood, and the broth was so good, the perfect amount of salt and spiciness. It may seem pricey at over $20, but it is so worth it. My husband had the fish and chips and fried scallops, he loved it and wanted more, so he also ordered... More

Local landmark. Super informal. Pretty good food, but we'd expected to have our socks knocked off. Go for the fun of it, but don't expect too much.

Phil's is a local joint. But, after a spot on the Food Channel --it was busy for lunch at 2:30pm. Large portions of mussels--crab salad and clam chrower. Reasonable prices and lots of food. It is about 20 miles North of Monterey. But it is worth the drive.

A wonderfully diverse seafood menu from fish tacos (two huge flour tortillas with salad and rice for $18) to specials ($20-30). Big portions. Order at the window and take a seat on the enclosed porch and they will bring the food. Excellent clam chowder. Also a fish market.

Thank Suzanne M
