A shopkeeper recommended Phil's, and although there was a long wait list, the very friendly hostess managed to get the two of us a seat in only 5 minutes. I wanted walleye, and it was great. All our food was very tasty and well-prepared. Good service, casual pub atmosphere - a fun place!

We had lunchtime drinks and Gorgonzola dip (yummy) while sitting at the bar. The gal tending bar was super friendly and eager to accommodate. We returned later @ 7:30 after walking through the City (we were first timers to Saugatuck). We traveled after Labor Day, which is my preference ALWAYS and everything basically closed @6. Phil's was open and jammed packed but we were lucky to get a table in just a few minutes. Great atmosphere, our server was very friendly and hardworking. The food was very good; hot, fresh, and good quality.

We chose this restaurant based on a recommendation from a friend. From the outside it doesn't appear to be anything special, but once you enter it is a great bar/pub atmosphere. We were there on a week night off season and there was still a wait to be seated. It was worth it though. The menu offered a wide variety of choices as well as a couple specials that sounded amazing. I ordered "Phil's Pasta" which was a different take on a pasta dish and was very good. My husband got the broasted chicken and enjoyed that. We both also had draft beers and they were served very cold which we both loved! We will definitely return to try something else from such great selections!

Friendly and accommodating staff. Be prepared for a wait though. We went twice in one day and got lucky but it filled up quick each time after. We ordered a ciabatta grilled cheese with potato wedges and vegetarian pad Thai. Both were good.

We ate on the patio and thoroughly enjoyed our casual food. The draft beers were fine and we enjoyed our meals (salad and a fish sandwich). It was a beautiful night. The interior of the bar is full of wood and looks like it has regulars and is a real part of the town.
