The food was terrible. Our server brought over everyone's food and said she'd be back with mine. 15 mins later she came with my dinner. The scallop appetizer was Disgusting and drenched in BBQ sauce. The crab bisque soup tasted old, my husbands steak wasn't bad. The bill was $90 for 2 adults and one child. No alcoholic beverages. Maybe the buffet is different but the sit down food was terrible and pricey.

Not impressed. This restaurant has really went down hill from last year. Dark and dingy. We had a large group and they placed us at two small tables. Waitresses stayed in a corner and stared. Crab legs were water logged.

My wife's shrimp were horrible. My prime rib was horrible. This place isn't what it use to be. There are so many more good restuarants in Ocean City to spend your cash. Never again.

We didn't have the buffet. The crabcakes and shark were awesome. We didn't have anything we didn't enjoy.

We have eaten at other places but tried Phillips for the first time upon reccomandation. We wanted to stay away from the buffet so we ate in n the restaraunt. Our waiter was more than friendly and the meal was worth the cost.
