We had a fine dinner at Phil's. Our waiter was terrific. The food was quite good and the atmosphere OK. This feels like a place that's been here a long time and that can be a good thing all by itself.

My family and I have ate here for as long as I can remember and I'm sure they came here before I was in the picture. As a kid I loved the triple decker PB &J and watching the fish tanks. As an adult I realize the place hasn't been updated in awhile and the menu is pretty much still the same but I still love the meatballs! My taste has outgrown their sauce but the meatballs are amazing. Staff is always courteous and does a great job managing large family tables with children.

Food has not changed for years--just good old Italian food. The place is definitely not fancy. The service is good and the prices are average.

We have been eating at Phil's as long as I can remember. At least once a summer we take a family trip up to Port Clinton to get our spaghetti at Phil's. My grandparents started this tradition when my father was a kid, my parents took us, and now we still go with my parents. I have pictures of my son as a toddler with Phil's Inn spaghetti all over him. I would definitely recommend Phil's, my favorite spaghetti anywhere!

The place is popular, but was kind of mess. We were seated at a table next to a table used to store napkins, silverware, carry-out containers and such. The waitress was robust and articulate,but it felt like the food took a long while and was utterly average. It was clean if untidy and the food did not harm us, so I would recommend that if you were beat and just wanted to catch some serviceable Italian-like chow, this place will do.
