Per the reviews on trip advisor, we knew there would be a wait. When we got to the restauranat 1:30 we were told it would be about a 20-25 minute wait. After waiting 45 minutes we could not see a light at the end of the tunnel because none of the tables were close to finishing and we heard seated... More

Wonderful, casual and friendly atmosphere. Not your run of the mill bar selections. Busy always means good food, so that doesn't bother us. Great service, nice wine selection, beer for the hubby. Fun and very enjoyable.

This was highly recommended, and we were NOT disappointed in the least! We were told it can be crowded at times, but we did not have to wait. There is an extremely small/narrow outside dining option. However, the humidity was high and we sat inside. Our server was friendly and answered our questions with patience. She explained the options accurately,... More

Great food, especially the portobello mushroom fries. We went about 1 PM on a Thursday and had no wait but the place filled up quickly after we were seated.The pear and walnut salad was very good although a little small as an entrée. Definitely worth the stop.

Best food in Saugatuck! A little loud but the food is fabulous. The salmon with broccolini and spaetzel is a delightful blend of savory and tangy. This chef nails it!!

This was the best dinner we had the weekend we went to MI. We had to wait like 40 minutes but we walked around the shops, it was worth the wait.

We stopped in here while we were waiting for check in time at the Wickwood Inn. We were told that it was a 20 minute wait - which turned into 45 - but it was well worth it. There really isn't a place to wait or not very offering with drink service, etc. HOWEVER, food was awesome and I am... More

Phil's is in many ways an old school bar. But it is also so much more with its upscale bar food. Very popular with locals as well as tourists. Plan on a 30min or longer wait, midweek. Well worth it though.

Thank FrednLes
