A word from Phillips Seafood
Classic Casual Dining: Phillips new Baltimore location, is an exciting and easy blend of vintage and modern, with a nod to the longstanding tradition of Phillips restaurants. Phillips at the Power Plant sits directly on the water, just a few steps away from the old Light Street Pavilion location, in the iconic renovated Power Plant industrial building. The innovative redesign of the interior by Carl Myers and Marcie DeLaRosa shows off gleaming, rich woods and jewel toned stained glass fixtures, distressed finishes and antiqued mirrors juxtaposed with a modern, open kitchen.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Service was excellent- they were busy, but the seating was well spaced between parties, so still had a private feel. Staff was excellent and knowledgable- answered any and all questions. Food was fantastic- we spent $130 on two dinners, 2 drinks, one alcoholic beverage, soup and dessert. Well worth the money. And as a side note, I am not a drinker by any means- but I would highly recommend the white mango sangria to anyone!!"

  • "I never write reviews because I feel people will make their own choices. My advice is stay away. If you want to experience Baltimore seafood, go to the oyster house. If you want validation, go to trip advisor and read the reviews for both restaurants. The numbers (comments) don't lie."

  • "Service slow meal was blah and all around below average meal. Maybe because the Yankees in town bringing many fans with them because next night meal at M & S was worse"

  • "My family and I visted Phillips while in Baltimore and thought it would have great seafood. I ordered the twin lobster tails and they were a bit tough. I had also ordered an appetizer with the meal that was never brought out. When I mentioned it to the waiter he stated that it might have been a "good mistake" on his part since most people order too much and can't finish there meal. My daughter had also ordered a fruit cup with her kids meal and that was never brought out either. Eventually, he did take her meal off the bill, but we could have done without his comments. Plus, everything we ordered was covered in cracked pepper, from my lobster, my sons roasted potatoes and my husbands salmon. It was not worth the high priced bill in the end."

  • "excellent seafood and excellent serviceI was on vacation with my family and that included at 2 & a half year old child and the service was very nice for her as well they had food choices them in her needsthe checking in process could be better and the staff at the door could be a little bit more friendly and inviting the lack of interest was overwritten however by the service we received from our waitress"

  • "We were trying to find a nice and quiet place to eat and we are glad we found this place. Very relaxing and you could actually have a conversation without having to yell, which is hard to find these days. Took the kids and they loved it also. Service was great and dessert was two thumbs up. Would definitely recommend it."

  • "We were in Baltimore for the holiday weekend and decided to stop into well-known Phillips for steamed crabs. The crabs were great (but small due to overharvesting...). The service could have been better, but overall a good experience."

  • "The food was a disappointment. Their crab dip was a mousse presented as a dip. There were no pieces let alone chunks of crab. If you don't want chunks, this is for you. I ordered crab saute. That's what I got, but it didn't taste fresh. It also had a piece of hair in it. Their crab cake was good, but one out of three items isn't right. Their Sangria was the weakest either of us have ever tasted. If you want a weak Sangria this is for you. The meal cost us $100 but should have cost $50. We only had 3 nights in Baltimore Harbor and wasted it this evening."

  • "The food and service were OK but just not what I had expected. I had always thought of Phillips as a very high end Seafood restaurant. I wasn't really impressed."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I had not been here in several years and wanted to try it while back in town .... major disappointment. The appetizer and ambiance were wonderful, but the kitchen was not having a good shift (or they saw me coming through the door with a bulls-eye). Either way, the oven cooked fish bled when cut open, the crab cake was hot on bottom though cold throughout, the grilled shrimp did not even get seasoned with salt or pepper and the rice was half cook (crunch crunch). Major FAIL. I will say the the wait staff and management were extremely apologetic, but my appetite was gone. On a positive note, their house made sangria's are wonderful."

  • "Went there 2 nights in a row when staying in Baltimore's Inner Harbor area, largely because the Yelp reviews were slightly better than other Inner Harbor places. The steamed mussels were quite good, but the broth could have been more flavorful. Two broiled lobster tails were good, but had some garnish on them that detracted from the flavor rather than added. The drawn butter was not plentiful. The accompanying vegetables--green beans, 3 pieces of squash, and a few tired red onions--were largely tasteless and underdone. Chocolate cheesecake was good. Night two: clam chowder--very good flavor, but served tepid. Ultimate crab cake--a generous serving of loose crab in a small skillet, not a crab cake at all, that was again good not great"

  • "First time customer, very disappointed, my wife and I each had the fish plate at $38.00 a plate. Not exactly cheap! Took a long time to come out and the food was not hot, warm at best. Tasted like a typical franchise, frozen with not much taste at all. We may be spoiled, we live along the north east coast with some great seafood take out. This was not even close. We are honestly not picky but this was pretty blah, scallops, shrimp, fish and even the asparagus all tasted the same. Really don't how they got famous, must of been a bad night!"

  • "Don't waste your time or money. This place is just an overpriced TGIFridays. Way to expensive for a crab cake that is no better than one from McDonalds (when they had them). So, save your money and go to Jimmy's in Dundalk. Phillips is only getting by because of the say it used to be 20 years ago. It's a shame visitors think the crab dishes served here are what Maryland is famous for."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "From sampling dishes at our table: calamari, soups & crabcakes were excellent. Best calamari I've ever had. I love sashimi but the fish in the fish&chips was not fresh (very fishy smelling) and inappropriately undercooked which made it worse. I couldn't finish it. This was my first time here but based on the restaurant's reputation, I suspect it was just an unusual slip in quality that day. Everything else was great including service & the view."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Food wasn't anything to write home about, standard seafood fair, cooked well. I wasn't sold on my scallops dish but my boyfriend loved his crab cakes, so it all balanced out. The waiter was fantastic, friendly, and even gave us some tips on hanging out in the area. We also requested a booth which they accommodated no problem. It helps that the place is huge! Overall well done!"

  • "I was not happy with the fried seafood platter. The food appeared to be fried in dirty oil as it was very dark and salty. I came all the way from Connecticut to try this restaurant and was very disappointed."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Friday night...hardly anyone there even though open table said they were booked. Food was okay but the atmosphere was more like a cracker barrel. Service was not good, food was served unappealing looking, sloppily plated, soup spilled all over the dish. We had to ask for bread. Place was not clean and there was NO attention to detail. For a meal that cost the two of us $150 for 2 cocktails, fish dinners, and a shared dessert...very disappointing. We will not go back. "

  • "My husband had the fried shrimp which were tasty but I could get the same fried shrimp at a dozen other places. I had the broiled seafood platter which was a complete disappointment. The crab cake was very tiny and full of filler, the 2 shrimp and 2 scallops were rubbery and both had pepper as seasoning. The salmon was decent, it was served with 'yellow rice' (their words) which was awful. It tasted like a box mix of chicken flavored rice. The only good things were the crab dip (we could have used 4 more breadsticks to actually finish it though) and the berger pie which they don't even make. "

  • "Our service was the worst I have ever experienced. It took 30 minutes tp place a drink order and 15 minutes to get them. One person was served the wrong meal and the waiter tried to get her to accept it twice. Entrees were served with the appetizers - the food was not very good and it was a horrible experience. We were entertaining guests from out of town and wanted a nice Baltimore waterfront experience. Never again."

  • "I've been bringing my guests who visit Baltimore to Phillips for crab cakes for a couple of years. However, I did noticed the size of plate became smaller this time. And the front reception had us waited for 20 mins until they found out they checked the wrong reservation. "

  • "Service was great and the outdoor dining on the water was wonderful. Sangria was cold and delicious and I recommend getting by the pitcher. The food was tasty and plenty of it. I would go back again but would try other seafood dishes because they have a huge menu and it was hard to choose.."

  • "My husband and I were visiting Baltimore for a conference. We enjoyed everything about our evening. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The food, (crab dip, oysters, broiled seafood platter) was delicious. Our server was very pleasant, prompt and never intrusive. The manager stopped by our table and we had a lovely conversation about our meal and the bottle of wine we ordered. All of the staff made us feel very welcome and valued as guests."
