The clam bake for two was not worth nearly as much as it cost. Our server Vic was awesome, but the food (reason for going) was substandard. The muscles and clams had absolutely no flavor, the lobsters were small, and the potatoes all the way on the bottom??? Why? Maybe some other food is better, but when we told out Lyft driver where we ate she was disappointed. Listen to the locals.

I have been a long time customer of Phillip's. I drove 40 miles just to come here to celebrate a birthday with my family. Michelle the waitress was great. Really! However, when I got the order of petite crab cake appetizer we only got 3 the size of a 50 cents piece et with some diced tomatoes for $14, what a disappointment. I was not amused with how the seafood platter has Shrunk in size either for $33. I am not eager to return after all these years as a customer and driving from another state to eat

The hostess Star was not attentive and she was extremely rude. After bring out our food to the table she never returned until it was time for the check. She placed the food containers on the table and said how was everything. If she would have returned after she placed the food on the table she would have known that my girlfriend and I were not satisfied with our dishes. I had stuffed crab meat on top of shrimp, mash potatoes and asparagus. The stuffed crab meat was mushy and you could taste the mayo. The potatoes tasted like it was sitting all day and the asparagus was not cooked. It was so hard it tasted raw. My girlfriend had blackened salmon, string beans and carrots; the salmon was freezer burnt bc it had a weird taste to it. Both of our plates were still full of food. I told Star that I wasn’t happy with the food; she throw her hands up, rolled her eyes, made a sound under her breath and was visibly upset. She went to talk to the manager and came back to the table and said my manger took the your dish off the check. I was going to order something else but her attitude was so horrible I opted out. So I asked her was she upset with me bc I didn’t like my food. She said no and asked my girlfriend do she want to put her food in the container, she told her no. I felt like if her food was barely touched and she didn’t want a container something was wrong. But she would have known that if she would have came back to the table. On top of all of that the manager never came over to the table. I will not be returning. Very disappointed

Good food way too expensive for small portions. Expect superior servers and food quantity for the price. I don’t mind paying more if quality, quantity, and service are on par.

We had a great family dinner at Phillips! It was our first time dining here and we came around 4pm on Sunday (which was great because it was not crowded!) Our server, Megan, was very good and the service was fast for our food. We loved that our kids got a free kids meal with our Port Discovery wristbands and the food was delicious! We enjoyed our experience and would come again if we were in the area.

We arrived at 10am for brunch. They were not ready to serve food. It took more than 10 minutes to get the food stations staffed and nearly 20 minutes to get a drink, which I had to obtain by hunting down the waitress myself. She rarely checked on us in the 45 minutes we were there. My husband waited an additional 15 minutes for a drink refill after he emptied his first drink. Worst service we’ve had anywhere in a long time. Highly disappointed.

It was really awesome I wish I could remember our waitress she was amazing. She was also very knowledgeable. I use to work at the Phillips in Ocean City years ago. I was so happy that the crab claw appetizer was on the menu that was my favorite. It left a very good impression on my date. Thank you we will be back 😁

Server was SUPER nice! I forget her name, it started with a K I believe, but she was super friendly, fast, attentive. Food came out very quickly for how much we’d ordered, everything was delicious, and since it was Valentine’s Day, they were giving a chocolate covered strawberry to all the women, which was super cute, I loved it!

My wife and I each ordered the Chilled seafood tower, a crab cake on the side, 2 beers and it was awesome! For the dessert, we ordered the cheese cake. The seafood was very fresh delicious. This is a must go to spot in Baltimore!

I have been here from out of town several times and like this place very much! Just disappointed they did not have the plate of delicious fresh lump crab meat available like last time, but the waitress explained they do not always have the "good stuff." Ask for it when you go there, as it is even more delicious than their yummy crabcakes! Great friendly service, perfect location at the Inner Harbor.

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.
