Except for the old wooden paneling that I miss, this spot is much improved and offers great value. I had the brats & homemade sauerkraut; my wife the Phil's Cheeseburger. The old Phil's just down the street was decent after years of being only so-so; the new Phil's really delivers quality and value. The beer selection is not fab, and I'm a beer snob, but they do have decent two locals on tap and some variety in bottles. I look forward to trying a cocktail. Unlike many such bars, the TVs were easy to ignore...Thank God, for they are plague on the land.

Get a limeade and call yourself a Richmonder. Phil's harkens back to a more tranquil time, and I'll be sure to return again and again.

I, just like many other Richmonders, was excited about the "new" Phil's opening up after the original Phil's close down. I have been to the new location a handful of times to meet friends, and let me just say- they have some issues. The service is incredibly slow- it's almost like you need to wave a flag and yell "I'M HERE" for anyone to notice you. All and all, the service is so frustrating that it's hard to go back... Don't get me wrong- the service is friendly, but it seems like they are lost. Also, both times I ordered a limeaid they were awful- like they forgot to add sugar to it... You can't mess up what you are known for!

This place has a good club sandwich, and the best Limeaid in town. However, it seems the size of the club has been diminishing in the last year. This place has been around forever, and is good for getting a good deli sandwich and a limeaid... or a vodka limeaid if you want to have a little fun!

I have been gong to Phil's for a LONG LONG time. It's been around forever. Seriously, it was here whne Pocahontas was around. She loved the cold PBR. It is under new ownership, but it is still a great place to have a cold one and a burger. Their Club Sandwich has always been great and they still make a great one. The beers are cold as they have frosty pint glasses. They have inexpensive beers and good food. What's not to love. Get by Phil's and have a cold one and Club Sandwich - DELICIOUS
