My headline would be TERRIBLE !
My appetizer of baked clams were so tough I could not chew them.
Main dish was to be a Cajun Mahi Mahi with shell fish.
There was nothing Cajun about it. Just grilled fish. Served at below room temperature almost cold.
The surrounding shell fish were clams and mussels.
A few mussels were OK. Clams were just like the ones in the appetizer, uneatable.
Biggest problem were some clams and mussels were served unopened.
This is very bad they are uneatable.
Won't be going back.

I loved the service! We were seated immediately and our waiter was very attentive. Food was AMAZING and it was the perfect date night vibe. We even received a birthday card signed by the staff for my partners birthday which we were celebrating. Definitely coming back! Thanks Atlantic City Phillips

Had a great time celebrating my birthday on Saturday night! The Waiter was awesome, ambiance was nice although quieter than I would have expected on a saturday night. The Baked shellfish imperial was DELICIOUS and birthday chocolate mousse cake was good as well. A nice time was had by all.

Really tossed up about this. The appetizer was very good but the for the main course there was an issue. My wife ordered the blackened ribeye with asparagus but the kitchen made a mistake and brought her short ribs over mashed potatoes. The mistake was corrected but while we waited the seafood I ordered got very cold. The waiter was very apologetic but I feel the manager should have made an apology as well. My seafood was …. ok, probably would have been better if I ate it warm. We came to Atlantic City for our 21st anniversary and to your establishment for our anniversary dinner. We thought it would be a 5 star experience but it was more like a 2 star. I feel my dinner should have also been remade so we could both eat together instead of waiting for my wife's dinner to come out 15 minutes later. Lobster, crab, and shrimp don't taste very good cold. We came to eat and celebrate together, not for me to eat before her while she sits there and then her eat while I sit there. What was really surprising was watching the manager take the short ribs we sent back, because they brought out the wrong item, and sit down at a table and eat them. The least the manager could have done was apologize but no.... nothing. Just not what I expected from what was supposed to be a 4 1/2star restaurant.

We were seated in the rear of he restaurant where the ambiance was not appealing. I’m sure those who sat upfront were very satisfied with their ambiance, I however, was not.

A bit pricey. My Fish was NOT flaky but quite rubbery. Server seemed preoccupied, had to request drinks several times. Need more Vegan type items (No Meat/Fish)

We chose Phillips Seafood for lunch as we visited Atlantic City yesterday. The building is a good place to view the beach and sea. There were not so many people in the restaurant but I believe Phillips gets most of the people in this mall...Business is just not so good here.
The food is not great as we expected. The Oysters are ridiculous small. I have never seen such small oysters before. The Surf & Turf is okay but the steak is bitter and we do not know why.
The Scallop risotto is great but the risotto is way too little. Just four spoons would finish it I guess.
The crab stuffed mushrooms is creative and delicious. We both Love it.
I could not remember the waitress’s name. She had short (around shoulder) blonde straight hair and she is quite considerate and friendly. Always asked about whether we are good and enjoy the food or not.
Anyway, the price is worth the food and the service.(Except the Oyster)

Food and service was excellent. A bit noisy. Prices are fairly high, but the quantity and quality of food is probably worth the price.

I brought my boyfriend and his family for his 50th birthday this past Saturday and was very disappointed in the service. We were a table of 6 in a very large check and our server was not attentive whatsoever. 4 of us were served and then 5 minutes later at the other 2 got served. Extremely disappointed in the whole experience. Spent over $400 had to Chase after my waiter!!! Food was good but not worth the price.

The fried shrimp were over cooked and chewy! Also didn’t like sitting next to the open wall where everyone walks pass while you’re eating.

Nice place. A little pricey for the seafood for two dinner for the amount we were served - also didn’t receive all food that was listed under this dinner. Besides that it was great!!

Bad ...like really bad. The broiled platter's "butter drizzle" looked unappetizing. Lobster tail was nowhere to be found. Turned out the shrimp was raw and not even deveined. I sent the whole plate back untouched. My sisters risotto was also sub par ...really grainy and chalky. Server was great and management will say they tried to accommodate us ...by remaking the food but at that point my confidence was lost.

Derek was our waiter. He took our order for appetizers and we ordered dinner at the same time. He came back with our appetizers and water but no straws. We asked Derek for straws. He said ok and never brought them so we asked Raoul. Raoul brought them right away.We asked Raoul for ketchup he brought it right away. RAOUL WAS WONDERFUL. We could not find Derek. An hour later Derek brought our food to us cold. We were angry and asked him where was he. He lied and said he was waiting on customers. Not true. We asked him to get the manager. He never got her. We asked another waiter for the manager. He got her right away. Allissa the manager came to our table. We complained to her about Derek bringing us cold food. Allissa took the cold food back to the kitchen and they sent us some more food. We ate it because we were hungry but it did not taste good. The mussells were really nasty. Allissa (the Manager) took $40 off the bill and gave us a $25 gift card. DEREK THE WAITER WAS THE WORST. HE WILL DISAPPEAR ON YOU. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO DINE.

The food was not good. My lobster tasted bad as did my friend’s steak. The split lobster tail was ridiculously small. Our server was very good and very pleasant. Very pretty view of the ocean. They need to step up their game on the food.

Not much to rave about from the food perspective. One of us ordered a filet and the other a sirloin and you couldn't tell a difference between them. The asparagus was bland while the Maryland crab soup was decent but not great. Dessert (wild berry cheesecake parfait) was the highlight of the meal. Our server did a good job but you can't make up for average food. Overall I had higher expectations for a renowned restaurant but left disappointed. Maybe it was an off night but I doubt I'll go back.
