After trying bloody Mary's all across Saugatuck, and sadly being disappointed, my wife and I finally tried them at Phil's, where we were pleasantly surprised. We like them spicy, hearty and with good flavor, and Brandy at Phil's did a great job meeting our expectations (I am a bit of a bloody mary snob!). What really made this experience special... More

This was by far our favorite restaurant in Saugatuck. Food was fabulous with great service. It's like a place you would see in a movie. We will return!

If you are looking for great food, with non traditional offerings included, in a non glam setting, go to Phil's. This place has the best food, with very generous portions. Must haves include the Goat Cheese appetizer. Entrees, like the Filet, big and juicy on a mound of mashed potatoes, the Scallop Pad Thai, with a ton of big scallops,... More

Phil's Bloody Marys are DELICIOUS & contain a munchable garden (pickle, cheese, salami, olive, YUM!) The tuna poké is absolutely outstanding...the best I've ever had. I also enjoy the scallop appetizer & fish tacos. The potato wedges that come with the burger are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. Daily specials are varied & interesting. I enjoy the...

We went on a Thursday night in December and it was packed, a 15 minute wait. It was worth the wait. The food was excellent. I really liked the Phil's pasta (buttery pasta with chicken & bacon). My wife enjoyed the fish tacos. Also great atmosphere.

This is our favorite place hands down! It is a great blend of old west saloon, sports bar and gourmet bistro. Everything we have ordered has been cooked to perfection and presented in style. Be sure to arrive early on Friday or Saturday nights or be prepared to shop downtown while you wait. It gets very crowded on the weekends.
