    I have been coming here for a few years with my wife for our anniversary. I don't know if the chef is different or what, but the food is too fishy and stuff that shouldn't even be spicy was burning hot. We had to leave after just having drinks and a soup. Not planning on coming back.

    If you want an impressive and delicious dinner,order the clam bake for two. It is well worth the price and the seafood was Amazing. Also the fried calamari appetizer was also awesome. It's a crowded and lively place but they are quick to serve and very attentive. Would love to go back.

    The service and scenery is very good. Located on the pier extending into the ocean gives a wonderful view of the beach and the Boardwalk. The food is pretty basic and not notable. No surprises and enough variety to please a group of people.

    Went for our 40th anniversary dinner. Staff was very nice, even when asked to take our picture. Appetizers and entrees were varied- something for everyone. Crab patties a necessity. Nicely varied seafood platter. House salad was different and delicious, with bacon and feta cheese. View of the coastline was beautiful. Desserts very good. Would recommend everyone to go.

    Dissapointment
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    Went there to celebrate an anniversary. Our meal came out before the appetizer and then in the middle of eating they decided to bring it out. I ordered lobster and was not given anything to clean my hands. Lobster and scallops were both overcooked. Crab Mac n Cheese did not have any flavor. My husband's portion was small. When sides are sold ala carte they usually are large enough for 2. Not the case. We had eaten there several years ago. We will not go back.

    This had all the parts of a good dinning experience for me.. Open air not stuffy, great view even with the sun going down, good service, good food though pricy. Had the New York strip and shrimp and the seasoning on the steak was a bit over powering. but it was done as requested.. Happy hour drink prices were very good. but all other prices seemed to be maybe 20 % higher than what I would have expected for this type of dinning experience.

    Pleasant decor. Friendly staff. Waiter was terrific; got food order right. Only restaurant with good menu to be opened in Atlantic City. Menu is limited but still choices are abound. Food was well done: Nothing raw especially seafood. Wine selection is limited but they do have a bottle or two from Chile. Deserts were good too but Lava Cake wasn't what I expected but still deiiscious. Worth going for lunch if you are in Atlantic City.

    We went for dinner but decided to fit at the bar instead of a table. Perfect choice because they have ALL DAY HAPPY HOUR on Sundays. We got a smorgasbord for less than half the cost of 2 entrees plus drinks. Oh and there were 4 of us.

    I hadn't been to a Phillips in years, and made our reservation on a whim. My have things have changed! It is no longer your run of the mill seafood restaurant, but classy and refined. Despite that, they had a great set of selections on the kids menus. The entrees are on the pricey side, but our portions were ample, the food was good and our server was amazing.

    Not the Phillips I know. Very inattentive service. Drink glasse and appetizer plates were not removed until we asked. Also, had to request bread while other tables received. The food was just average- not the quality I have had at Phillips in Baltimore. One positive- I asked our server who is responsible to remove dishes and she said both herself and the bus boy. She did thank me for the criticism and said, " most people are afraid to say anything negative."

    We arrived for lunch. Disappointed that they had no blue crabs at a seafood restaurant. They have a huge crab at the check in station. Service was ok. She did not go out of her way. They served water without ice , food was ok. Chairs were dusty. We recently went to Philips Baltimore . Service was outstanding. They went above and beyond to make happy. Good was delicious . Menu had blue crabs. I would never recommend Phillips atlantic city to anyone. I'm a little worried about going to another Philips .

    We were in AC for the night and last minute we had time to eat before a show. Found it was on the Pier and was not sure if we were going to dig it. Since the Pier has become more of a "mall", I was questioning my call on this. It was right next to the Continental, which is decent. Service was very good. Friendly and available. 2 things I like in a server. We got the Oyster sampler app and wish there were more. I got the scallops and the GF got the shrimp. Both were excellent. To be honest, I still had some room left in the belly. For some people that's ok. I dont like to be stuffed, but comfortably full. So I ordered the Bread pudding which was great as well. Great place!! You will not be disappointed!!

    They were very accommodating. Due to a major accident our party was delayed by 45 minutes. I was able to call from the road and adjust the reservation. We were seated immediately and with a show to catch, the waitress quickly responded to our order and managed to get us everything quickly. The food was nicely prepared.

    Dined on 7/25/2014
    For a place that refers to itself as a seafood specialty restaurant, we were terribly disappointed. The only thing we ate here that was awesome was the poached pear and fig salad. The shrimp cocktail tasted about the same as you'd find in an average grocery store. It was watery and lacked texture. The crab soup tasted and smelled awfully fishy, and the crab stuffed mushrooms tasted so bad that we left on the rest to be thrown away rather than force them down. The wedge salad was good, as was the mixed greens salad. This and three drinks took us over $100 and we decided it was not worth the risk to try their main courses so we left. If you want the best seafood experience there is, you'd thank me for going to Dock's Oyster House

    I was pleasantly surprised with the beautiful views, and we were able to be seated next to the windows. Started off at the bar with happy hour mussels and oysters-definitely worth it, and tasty, though the actual mussels seemed small. Excellent service from the hosts to the bar and throughout the meal. Crab cake was as delicious as i heard it described. Salad made table side was a nice touch and quite tasty. I was not as impressed with the mixed oyster appetizer, but i should've asked for a better description of the dish before choosing it

    Service was terrific for a group of 13 guys. Held our table while we met and initially got drinks at the bar. Kerrie (waitress) did a great job once we got to the table. Comped one dinner when it came out just 2-3 minutes later. Very attentive. Made for a nice meal which everyone enjoyed. Quality steaks for a seafood restaurant.

    We made our reservation with a few days before a Saturday event. As it turned out, the reservation was a GREAT idea, because the wait upon walkup was an hour and 20 minutes. Way too long for concertgoers! Anyway, the food was very well prepared, and we enjoyed it (crab cakes and scallops). However, it was a little expensive. We expected this somewhat because of the location (near the casino), but we did feel a little "taken advantage of". Service was great, and the mango sangria (ordered from the bar) was very good. We might be back (because of the food), but probably wouldn't if we were on a budget.

    I dined at this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend who had eaten at the Phillips Seafood in Maryland. First off, the restaurant was not full on a Friday night in July during vacation season. This should have been a clue right off the bat! We both ordered the broiled seafood platter. This food had absolutely no flavor what-so-ever. No seasonings, no sauces...I felt like I was eating hospital food. One of the things I heard this restaurant was famous for was the crabcakes. Mine were mushy and disgusting. The only thing edible was the cream of crab soup. I will not be back to this or any other Phillips Seafood restaurant. What a disappointment, especially when there are plenty of great restaurants to choose from in AC.
