On the way back from NJ, Caught an early lunch at the airport. Was pleased with the food and the service was friendly and efficient. Recommended spot for a meal while waiting for your flight.

What a nice place to have some good seafood dishes while you wait for your plane. We enjoyed the crab cake sandwiches and lobster bisque. We even ordered more it was that good.

So terminal A badly needs a facelift but fortunately this restaurant has already had one. Bright cheery and good service. If you have the time for a sit down airport meal, this is your best option. We only had breakfast which is admittedly hard to mess up but we enjoyed the food thoroughly.

Had extra time before flight over Thanksgiving weekend and decided to eat dinner at Phillips. It was better than expected for the airport. The lobster roll was very good however it could have used more moisture and seasoning. The crab cake sandwich was good and flavorful - seasoned nicely. The yellowfin tuna sandwich was very good as well. The waffle... More

the staff are non observant and unhelpful. I waited there for 10 minutes for a drink when the restaurant was dead. I also had to explain 3 times what kind of beer I wanted. Try to avoid if you're at newark airport

I get really tired of airport kiosk & fast food. My husband were pleasantly surprised when we went to Phillips Crab House after being seduced by the pictures of food as we walked to our gate. I had the fish tacos which has moist pieces of fish that were seasoned nicely ( I like spicy!) and drizzled with sauce. My... More

I haven't had good experiences with airport seafood but Phillips was the exception. Had the crab and shrimp roll for about $10 which had plenty of real, not imitation crab and shrimp. Service was great. I'll be back when I'm in Newark again.
