2-14. We both ordered soup,mine came out fast, my husband didn’t come for 20 min. I said no garlic and was assured their wasn’t any in potatoes or chicken. Potatoes were great, chicken had so much it almost took my breath away. I asked for gravy thinking I could smother the taste, didn’t work at all, actually made it worse. To late to reorder, my husband was almost finished , so what was the point. We did have carrot cake which was fabulous!

Overall was very good. The crab bites appetizer was not. Just completely saturated in oil. Couldn’t even finish them. I had a lobster tail with my steak. The lobster tail was cooked well but just had way too much pepper. Same with my steak. Cooked just right but was practically coated in garlic. Good service.

Excellent food, of course ever so slightly over priced due to it's location. Nice to see the strip out the window while you eat. Service speed could be improved, lit sat on service bar for a good 8 minutes before being delivered.

We had a reservation and we were celebrating two birthdays. I was hoping to have a nice table but they put no thought in that and there was a stand of dirty dishes beside us for the first 40 minutes. Service was a little slow but the food was very good. I just wished they would have put a little more effort into a nicer table and acknowledged the birthdays.

There wasn’t anyone to greet or seat us when my party arrived for our reservation. I had to go look for someone. Fifteen minutes after being seated, our waiter never showed up. There was no acknowledgement from any employees. We didn’t even receive a glass of water. We left and went elsewhere to have dinner.

Service was slow before and after the meal. Had to ask several times for water refills. Food was great as per usual for Phillips. I think our waitress was just inexperienced. Ambiance is different. It is in the upper floor of a mall setting so we sat looking out onto the mall floor. In the daytime, I bet the water view is pretty though.

Me and my girlfriend came here before and it was ok but tonight it was horrible, the waiter was good but the food was horrible the steak was hard and could barely chew we ordered crab mac and cheese they brought it out with no crabmeat in it, when we told the waiter he told the supervisor who then told him to get two cups of crabmeat and bring out to us so we could put the crabmeat in ourselves but by then we didn't wan a eat anymore, and his supervisor never came out to see what was wrong or anything didn't offer to take it off the bill or anything it took the food forever to come out and it wasn't that many people in there, so me personally I will never go there again.

Surf and Turf for $19,95 is a real bargain. The steak was so tender and it was just enough to eat.

It was my Mother’s birthday and all she wanted was a fried Seafood platter from Phillips because it was so delicious any other time. We drove an hour just to have it. We arrived at 8:45 and there was no hostess. We stood and waited until a server noticed us and went to seat us. I mentioned the party name specifically because I added a note about her birthday to the reservation. He looked at the screen, repeated the party name and seated us. The waiter was very pleasant. I have no complaints about him. The food: eh. Much to be desired. Even our rolls seemed stale.

Both platters were warm at best and seemed like whatever they may have had left over and not a platter straight out of the fryer. The food had a good taste but it seemed like it had been under a warmer waiting for someone to order it and the fish was dark. There seemed to be more fries than anything else and the coleslaw had hardly any taste. This portion at least was remedied with a dash of salt.

The coffee came out and when you added cream it turned into a greenish grey color. The waiter assured us the coffee is very strong and was probably okay but we asked for a fresh cup. He came back saying he out in a fresh pot and it was much better.

While sipping our coffee and chatting he brought the check and never mentioned my Mother’s birthday. I went to find someone but could only find a server passing by with a tray of plates. When our server arrived with the cake and song, he apologized stating the hostess already left for the night and never informed him there was a birthday.

All in all, what should have been a lovely birthday dinner was not so. I still tipped the waiter 18% because he certainly did his part but the evening wasn’t what I expected.

Our only complaint was that we ordered an appetizer and our dinner came about 5 minutes after we got the appetizer. I expected some time between the appetizer and dinner. We didn't want our dinner to get cold, so we barely ate any of the appetizer. We were visiting from out of town, so we really couldn't take it with us to re-heat at a later time.

We decided to dine here for our Anniversary prior to attending a concert and our food was delicious, and the portions were a nice size. We had made reservations and arrived a little early, the hostess seated us right away and didn’t make us wait. The waiter was friendly and gave us great recommendations on our meal and drink selections. I will definitely dine here again and recommend to others.

My wife and I did a weekend trip to Ocean City, MD and had intensions to dine at the Phillips, but
due to time constraints, we were unable to make it and were due to leave for home, NY. Upon viewing the website, we learned of the location in Atlantic City, NJ. Well, what a treat!! The food was amazing, from appetizers to the main course. Everything was fresh and delicious. We are looking forward to going back.

My wife and I arrived looking forward to a nice seafood dinner. I have eaten at this chain before and thought it would be worth eating at a Phillips again. I ordered clam chowder and the mahi dinner; my wife ordered crab cake appetizer and the shrimp scampi. My food was fine. The chowder and mahi were both properly prepared. tasted good, and I would consider ordering them again. However, either my wife's crab cakes or the shrimp scampi were bad. She ate three crab cakes and one shrimp out of her scampi and quickly became ill. She loves scampi and thought the single shrimp she ate tasted odd. This was the first time she has ever had a problem with a seafood dish in any restaurant anywhere. Our server offered to replace the dish, but at that point my wife couldn't even look at seafood (or any food for that matter) without gagging so we declined the offer. Our server said he would remove the scampi from the bill, but I asked him not to do that. We had ordered the food and the restaurant is entitled to be compensated even though we strongly suspected at least one of the shrimp was tainted.
The server we had was very friendly, but unfortunately he neglected to tell us about the special that day (which I probably would have ordered had I known about it). Neither he nor anyone else stopped by to refill the water glasses when they were low. Would I return to this restaurant? Definitely not. Would I recommend it to someone else? No, I wouldn't be able to do that.
