About Phillips Seafood
Maryland is famous for its crabs, and Phillips Seafood is Baltimore's premiere restaurant for award-winning crab cakes! After more than 30 years in its original Inner Harbor location, Phillips Seafood has moved across the Baltimore harbor.
Beneath the lights of the massive 17-foot tall Phillips letters, now part of the iconic Baltimore skyline, you’ll find a casual, polished restaurant with a revitalized feel. We serve an extensive menu of classic seafood dishes along with plenty of dining choices for non-seafood lovers. Enjoy the music from the famous piano that has been rolled across the harbor, with live music nightly in our lounge. The open kitchen is a model of clean efficiency and provides a birds-eye view of the chefs in action.

Phillips Seafood Ratings and Reviews
I had the Ultimate Crab Cake and my wife had the Broiled Seafood Platter Deluxe. The food was a little pricey but very good. My crab cake and crab mac and cheese was excellent! Our only disappointment was the fish on the Broiled Platter; it had a bland flavor. We will return the next time we're in Baltimore.
This place was a complete disappointment. The drinks are overpriced and quite unsatifying. The food was at best average and not worth expense. My steak which I ordered well done, came to me medium. To make matters worse, waiter took it back three times but not done correctly. Needless to say, we won’t be back.
My husband and I went to Philips because it was recommended to us. We were a little taken back because of the prices but thought to just go with it. We ordered the crab mac and cheese and crab cake and it was amazing! Definitely worth the price you pay. I tried a cheaper crab mac and cheese at a different place and it was not as good. Spend the extra money and get good food.
We went to Phillips for our anniversary. I thought (my mistake) the restaurant was more upscale than it is, although the food was good. My wife and I were dressed up and she expected something more fancy (we were visiting, although I lived in Baltimore 35 years ago). In my opinion, the crab cakes were well prepared, but somewhat underseasoned.
The five of us were less than enthused by all aspects. We did get in on time, however. No vegetarian options other than side salad. Told waiter I am vegetarian and ordered Brussels. They were filled with bacon, which weren't mentioned on menu and waiter said nothing about.
OK and very expensive. I'm not sure why I had high expectations but I did. I ordered the 2nd cheapest thing on the entree menu, a salad and a glass of regular wine and still ended up with $50 for one person. While fine, the $10 wedge salad was small, the Shrimp, while cooked well, tasted just like the fries, and the by the glass wine list was totally pedestrian and included exactly the same wines I'd find at Applebe's. Phillips should be better than that. My server was excellent and working hard.
Went because they had a gluten free crab cake, which they do, and they seem knowledgeable about gluten allergies. However, our crab cakes had a lot of shell (one gluten free, one regular), and the roast potatoes were undercooked. The mash potatoes were really good, and the creme brûlée was good too. We also had the deviled eggs as an appetizer, and they were great. All in all, we expected more from a famous restaurant like this.
My Food was delicious but I'm not sure the price matched it . My waiter seemed like he didn't want to be there so that didn't make the experience that any better.
Also I'm not sure if this was this particular restaurant but I've been to many seafood places in I've never had as many shells in my crab cakes or dip like I did at this at this restaurant.
I'll go back if I'm ever in Baltimore but my expectations will be much lower
I WAS COMPLETELY DISSATISFIED WITH THIS VISIT TO PHILLIPS. I HAD EATEN THERE PREVIOUSLY AND HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE IN 2015 WHICH PROMPTED MY COMING BACK THIS TIME. THE WAITRESS WAS VERY NICE AND BROUGHT THE FOOD OUT IN A TIMELY MANNER. HOWEVER, MY STEAK WAS ORDERED MEDIUM WELL AND AT BEST WAS RARE WITH BURNT EXTERIOR. THIS WAS BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE MANAGER .
I was visiting from Florida - Reserved a table but had to wait anyway. Once at table, waiters weren't sure who had our table so they were very slow. When my order finally arrived 20 minutes after my husbands, my dinner was wrong but I did eat the crab cakes. The waiter came over to see if everything was alright about 20 minutes after my meal was delivered because he noticed all the food on my plate. He offered me other food items and I finally agreed to crab soup (it was delicious) Don't think I would go back if I get to this area again.
Been coming to Phillips the past 15 years. Love this place. After Ravens game! Drinks with buddies and a bucket of crab....don’t get any better then that. Cost a bit more but definitely worth it. Inner Harbor is my favorite. Going to miss this place (again) when I move.
This was a special trip to the Inner Harbour for my family and I. I went to Phillips as a child with my parents when we visited the Inner Harbour many moons ago and it was big deal then for our family. I am a single mom so I saved a while for this trip so my boys could have the same great
experience that I did when I was little. I never forgot the special dinner from when I was a child and was so happy we had a beautiful night there eating outdoors and a friendly server. I thank you for a great evening and making more memories.
