Maybe it was an off night, but my wife and I came away happy but not impressed as we thought we would be. After hearing so many accolades, I was sure we would hit a home run here. The boiled shrimp appetizer was overcooked and pasty. The main courses were cooked properly but just seemed, well, plain. You know that... More

Had the opportunity to boat over to this restaurant. Lots of dock space. Got a table by the window to catch the subset! We ordered royal red shrimp to start & they were amazing! Very meaty & tasty. The dishes we ordered for main dinner were eggplant Christopher, shrimp su gratin, sirloin steak & 24 shrimp. There were no complaints... More

You cannot go wrong with Phils! The crab dip with bowtie pasta is a must- not too strong of crab flavor - creamy & perfect. The seafood platter is the perfect amount of food to split. Not too much or over the top & frried perfectly. Ice cold beer. Great service (thanks Savannah)

I alway get the boiled shrimp but they don't alway have them. I don't know why they make it so hard to get boilded shrimp, it's already come frozen. they just have to put a pot of hot water on and pop the frozen shrimp in the pot.

We read such good reviews on Phil's it was the first restaurant we visited when we got to town. It's a bit off the beaten path but a really nice facility that it shares with the yacht club. They told us to sit anywhere we wanted so we sat by a window looking out at the boat slips. We had... More

Quickly seated on a Friday night 9 (about 5:30) but when we left there was a crowd waiting. The gumbo starter was good but I found the fish entree slightly dry even with a sauce. Serving sizes are good. We had a larger party and all, even the children, ate well.

Food was pretty good, $30 lunch for two (shrimp on a bun, and catfish lunch special, with two sodas). Nice view of the marina, people coming in and out on boats. Weird, slightly sickening smell in the little outer room by the windows, which was also about 8 degrees too hot for comfort. Waitress would disappear for long spells. Nice... More

We went with a group of 7 on a Tuesday evening. Quick seating, nice atmosphere, fast and friendly staff. Seafood was fresh and cooked well. Large portions (I could not finish my shrimp po-boy).

We went on a Thursday evening. The restaurant was not overly crowded so we were seated right away. We were a party of 10. The staff was very friendly and the server attentive. The restaurant is next to the marina so the atmosphere is nice. I had a shrimp special which was 24 fried shrimp and fries for $12.95. It... More

Everybody in our party had a huge portion, nice flavors and appetizing presentation. For some reason my soup was way too salty (hence the 4*) but the chef claimed that's how it was meant to be. Great view and surrounding.

Thank utaznijo
