Stopped in and was lucky the wait was short. The place is small and can get really crowed. But wow, the food is so good. We tried the fried portobello mushrooms and they are awesome. Same goes for the fish tacos and perch basket.

Phil's is always a great stop when you stay in Saugatuck. It was a Monday evening so most of the restaurants were closed making this evening before New Year's Eve very busy. We made acquaintance when a great young couple who found out we were on the trip to celebrate our anniversary - and they sent us a drink! Nice evening, good food!

Phil's is a hopping place with some pretty good waits for tables. Not much on decor, but once seated the service, selection and pricing are very good. We had a $50 bottle of chardonnay that I have paid $80 for elsewhere. There is a Gorgonzola Ale Dip appetizer with flatbread chips that is to die for. The table had the Scallop Pad Thai, the Filet and a special fish dinner and all were way too much food that we managed to eat all of. Unfortunately, no room for dessert. If you are looking for quiet dining, this is not it. For fun, a lot of laughs and a great meal, this is it.

The food and service has been consistently good here for years. It's not "fine dining", white tablecloth type fair but it's very good at what it does, good American food. The prices are reasonable too. I've been dining at Phils since it opened and its a "go-to" place when friends visit.

Always good food and atmosphere. I have a cottage in Saugatuck and make Phil's one of my regular stops. Be careful, it may be VERY busy on the weekends year-round.

My favs: ribs, perch basket, ribs, ribs, and ribs. And the ham n cheese is tasty too!
