I have dined at Phil's several times, and have never been disappointed. The restaurant is a friendly, casual place, with delicious food. There is fantastic broasted chicken for chicken lovers, and always a very creative special of the day. At lunch we had a hearty eggplant soup that was fantastic. They have a gluten free menu that is amazing. If you have given up gluten, you will not have to give up wonderful gourmet meals at Phil's. The service is always friendly and efficient. Weather permitting, you can dine outdoors. Inside, the walls are adorned with original works from local artists. Just a great dining experience!

We trusted the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The vibe in the bar was eclectic and the food was fantastic. Service was excellent as well.

One meal ordered was the broasted chicken with fries and cole slaw. Chicken was five out of five. Four pieces were plenty. Crispy, juicy and great flavor. Concentrated on the chicken and not so much on the fries. The cole slaw was nothing to write home about.

Two of us had the grouper special which was awesome. A large meaty piece nicely grilled. Sitting on fingerling mashed potatoes. Corn relish and a jalapeño cream sauce on top. Just the right amount of spice. Corn relish was very fresh. Would definitely order this again.

Almost forgot the lobster Cobb salad. Two of us split the salad and the grouper with no issue from server. The salad was outstanding. We got the garlic and balsamic vinaigrette. Really good.

Service was both friendly and efficient. Check came quickly at the end which we like. Only issue was the Cosmo. Not good. I think the bartender missed the Cointreau.

Will definitely return.

My wife and I ate dinner at Phil's tonight (a Thursday). I had a cheeseburger and she had a fish sandwich. We ate on the "patio". We both enjoyed our food and the service was good too. We had no wait. We stay in Saugtuck for a while every summer and we will definitely add this to our short list of places to eat. The burger is really big.

My favorite restaurant in Saugatuck. The food and service are always excellent. No reservations and expect a long wait anytime, but it is worth it. The specials are always great

Definitely good food, very noisy atmosphere, excellent service, crazily busy bar and restaurant at 5:30 p.m. - had to wait for a table but only about fifteen minutes. I would go back because I could have enjoyed a number of items on the menu. Obviously one of Saugatuck's best.
