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.

I was definitely not impressed, and actually disappointed because It was highly recommended.
I ordered a broiled combination that was not
broiled, it was almost as if they forgot the final step. The food was bland, even the salmon which is crazy. Even the presentation was blah. To make matters worse, our waitress was completely MIA if I wanted to send it back. She was so inattentive.
Food was poor, service was poor, restaurant was nice atmosphere.
One last thing, I was given my check for 63.00, gave them my debit card and when they returned it for me to sign, they had added an item and 10.50 to the bill. There would have been 0 reason for them to run a new check, just felt a bit sketchy.
There are many alternatives in Baltimore for seafood, don’t think I would give Phillips another shot.

Phillips is a tourist trap. Very expensive for just ok food. Our waiter was great and it is a cool place to go, but wouldn’t go back anytime soon.

Service was very good. Food was mediocre for the price we paid. The lobster and salmon were overcooked and would’ve been great because it does have good flavor. Overall, it was a decent experience, but I expect more for the money in terms of proper cooking techniques. It’s in a tourist area, so you have to expect it sometimes.

Food was cold and rubbery like it had been sitting out for at least 10 minutes before it got to our table. Tons of shell pieces in the crab cakes.

We ordered two kids menu, one lobster roll and crab cake salads at two pm on winter break Saturday. Waited 38 minutes for food.

It was just too busy at the kitchen. I understand but too long to wait.

We had a mixed group of kids and adults for a lunch visit the day after Christmas. They were very short staffed which impacted our service. Food was ok but nothing to sing about..

Nice place to eat! Staff very friendly, welcoming environment. Food menu is okay, should include rice beside mash potatoes. Great salad! Resturant appearance is nice for business, birthdays or anniversary.

Open Table is The Way to get the table You Want! I love that you can see the opening reservation times and search through them. There's also a way that you can add notes regarding special dietary concerns. Thanks for being such an asset to so many restaurants! Phillips Seafood was fabulous!

Good place on the inner harbor of Baltimore. Crab cakes were great, vegetable crab soup was everything I hoped it would be. Steak, Shrimp and salads were fresh and cooked to order.

The first restaurant we go to when we arrive from Tampa is Phillips harbor. The prices seem to be increasing much higher and the quality of the crab cake is more filling and less crab

Phillips was a delightful experience. The food and service were excellent. The crab cakes were just as I remembered from the taste I remembered from Annapolis. The experience couldn't have been better.

We were only in Baltimore for one night, so we definitely wanted to get some seafood, and crab in particular. The food at Phillips did not disappoint. Two of our group of five are gluten intolerant (one is celiac), so we appreciated the extensive gluten-free menu, which actually included most of the highlights from the main menu. There is also a good children's menu, and the atmosphere is very family-friendly. The crab cakes were fantastic, as were the crab legs and salmon, and the shrimp were the best I'd had in a long time. For the non-seafood-lover among us, there were also good options, including a perfectly cooked filet mignon. The beer and wine list was extensive, and Phillips' own Amber Ale paired perfectly with the seafood. As an added bonus, we enjoyed the live music by a guitarist, featuring a fun mix of classics as well as covers of modern artists like Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the Inner Harbor area.

It was terrible. We waited 30 with no service before getting the manager just to get service. Our food was wrong when it got to our table and we had to ask twice to get it fixed. Over all it was a horrible experience and I won't be back

My family and I greatly enjoyed the setting and the restaurant in general. The food itself was not equal to the price charged. My husband ordered a New York steak and crab cake. The crab cake was good, but the steak was extremely under seasoned. It tasted like it had no seasoning at all added. My sister and I each had the broiled seafood platter. It was good, though it was also under seasoned.
