Broiled Seafood Trio
Hoopers Island crab cake, catch of the day & shrimp, served with chef's vegetables & mashed potatoes
Ultimate Crab Cakes
made with all jumbo lump crab meat; served with chef's vegetables & mashed potatoes
So good. Loved our meal and drinks. The MD Crab soup was the best I’ve ever had… so was the ultimate crab cake for that matter. Sad that their OCMD location closed so I felt like we had to go when we were in town. It didn’t disappoint!!
My dates food came out cold but did not make a fuss out of it. Cups were dirty and the soda was flat. I hadn’t been to a Phillips since I was a kid and was highly disappointed because I had talked so highly of it. The service was amazing just everything else was not up to par.
We had a wonderful time here. The atmosphere was great, the food was delicious and most of all, our server Dale was great. He was fun, friendly and professional. We had a great time and will be back in the future.
The shrimp was just ok….steak was more like a 5-6 ounce precooked rather than 8. Crab cake and bisque were good. Honestly wish we’d tried a different place rather than spending $140 for two adults and a kid for just OK food. Our server was AWESOME. Also, why is there a bread plate but no bread? No side salad either… was it good. Yes for about half the price, would I go back. Probably not.
Food was very good. Wish they had the seafood tower and charbroiled oysters
Understand that Covid has taken a toll on restaurants in general
All in all very satisfied
Our server was excellent and took very well care of us.
The service was great; our waiter was attentive and personable. The crab cake was delicious but portioning was small for the price. My Cajun pasta was room temperature, which was disappointing - I’m assuming so it would be at the same time as the other dish. The food was alright but the value was not so great. You pay for the location.
Another delicious meal, on this visit we had Ananda as a server and she was absolutely delightful, very helpful and outgoing. We really liked that Ananda gave estimates of how long each course would take to prepare - we didn't keep track of how long they actually took but it was nice having a general idea that our apps would be ready in 5-10 minutes. We had the Crab Rangoon as well as the Chesapeake Crab Dip, both were outstanding. The dip is very rich and cheesy and served with buttery crusty bread; the Rangoon are light and crispy with a nice savory bite. We both had Ultimate Crab Cakes and they were amazing with huge lumps of crab meat and the perfect amount of wet mix to hold them together, no tartar sauce or mustard needed - just a few squirts of lemon juice. The mashed potatoes on the side were also delicious. For dessert we had the gluten free chocolate torte and tried the Smith Island Coconut Cake. The torte was incredible, super rich and fudgy, while the cake was light, airy and delicious. Also really enjoyed the Raspberry Lemon Crush. Thank you for another memorable meal, with special thanks to Ananda for taking such good care of us!
Great food and awesome service! The crab cakes, crab dip, and crab and shrimp spring rolls were very good
Our server Eric was fantastic and made our visit really nice. The food was only okay. I think we had really high expectations for our inner harbor visit.
Our server, Corey was lovely. Great food. Easy location to get to!
Great time, excellent service! Will go back again!
This was the first time my husband and I had been out to a restaurant in 2 years. Phillips was clean and felt very safe. The service was wonderful and fast, and the food was delicious. Our server was very friendly!
Bartender Phil was amazing with service and jokes! Came here knowing I would have a great crab cake but the service made the experience even better!
Me and my gf were impressed. I haven’t been to Phillip’s in awhile. Enjoyed our time at the restaurant. Wondering will they bring back the buffet like back in the day.
Spectacular meal! I had the Ultimate Crab Cakes and they were melt in your mouth delicious! Best crab cake I've ever tasted. My mom had the Steak & Crab Cake platter which was also incredible and cooked to perfection. We started with Crab Rangoon which went perfectly with the sweet dipping sauce, and the Shrimp Sriracha Dip which was unique and very tasty. Loved the bread that came with it for dipping as well. For dessert we had the ice cream sandwich and cheesecake, both were exquisite (although the flourless chocolate cake is my absolute fave - I had on a previous visit). Also loved my Frose drink. Our server checked in often but wasn't a bother and was quick with refills and clearing plates. The overall ambiance was very chill and a nice respite from Black Friday madness. We will definitely be back!
Reservation was very easy to make, no waiting, and the food and service was great!! Visiting Inner Harbor!
The server Dominick was the best! The food was good, but the service was amazing!!
First time at this establishment. In my opinion food was mediocre and pricey. In fairness, I have yet to find good fish and chips in an American restaurant. Server presented bill before we had finished eating and did not offer the dessert menu or after dinner drinks. Disappointed with experience.
Great seafood especially the crab cakes
Awesome service. Came from
Out of town would definitely return.
Service was terrible. Took forever to get drinks and then the waiter messed up our order. And food was not worth the money. It was disappointing. Was looking forward to some good crab cakes!
The food was really fantastic and delicious. The service was good, but apparently they were backed up in the kitchen so it took awhile for our food to arrive and our server took awhile to greet us, but after that she was great so I docked a star for service because of these two delays. Overall I enjoyed my visit and would definitely recommend a stop here to anyone.
Love this place, 10/10 recommend every time. The only thing is the mussels were very fishy smelling.
We sat outside and had great food a service. Crab cakes and muscles were excellent!
Great service with food to match! Very enjoyable evening!
The Bloody Mary was plain. No celery or anything else. Gluten free options are minimal. Barramundi was on plain rice with raw bean sprouts. No flavor. Meal was nothing special
The manu was surpringly limited. No crab imperial or expected crab dishes. Probably the place to go during crab season. We were there in November 2021. The fish and chips were not a crisp as we expected. However, I have to admit that the bill was much less than I was expecting to pay.
Great food and service. Our server was very nice and good at her job.
Phillips Seafood has been a local favorite for years! This recent experience was no different - the quality service, freshness and great taste of the food, and the atmosphere were all wonderful.
Disappointing crab cakes. Beer hall atmosphere. Not a pleasant dining experience. Would not recommend Or return.
My waitress, Maura, gets 5 stars! Attentive, not intrusive and good listener. Everything came to the table as I wanted. Checked back frequently to ensure all was well and if I needed anything. She had tried numerous dishes and made several suggestions. Also recommended several items from wine list. Very informed about the history of the Phillips restaurant and how it came to be where it is today. I ordered the crab rangoon, mushroom pot stickers, shrimp & crab spring rolls, crab dip and fried seafood platter. I love bread so the crusty bread with the dip was delicious. All the other items were good. I had said I’d probably take some items home, so Maura brought containers early during my meal, which was great for me. I dined inside the restaurant and it was not noisy at all. The food was good later as a late night snack. Talking with Maura, she said she was impressed with how the company trained the employees and how they felt like they were all family. I asked where Phillips sourced their crab and she was very informative about that too. Explained that it comes from the Philippines (their crab similar to the one here) and the plant there keeps to very high standards in quality control. Keep up the great work, Maura, and Phillips Seafood Restaurant!
Very average food, with average prices.
Highlights were the staff. Both the front and our waitress went beyond to give us a good experience
The food was good. I have had better but good. The service impacted the experience as our server was not attentive and she did not own the fact that she was not attentive. She did not refill our drinks. We asked for extra sauce and she brought it after we completed the meal. As a result, I would not return to the restaurant in the future. Many other seafood restaurants in Baltimore…pass this one by.
Crab cakes were average. Asparagus was fresh, oysters were excellent as well as optional horseradish.
Food was absolutely delicious and service was great! We will return next time we visit Baltimore!
Went for my birthday towards closing. The menu had so many options the staff was very polite in person but over the phone not so much. They value for what we paid versus the quality of food received was a perfect match. And I also received a free birthday dessert. We had the crab dip and ultimate crab cakes which is a must have when dining here.
The outside patio was beautiful. The atmosphere and staff were both wonderful. The food was delicious!
Very good food and attentive service. Snow crab and shrimp delicious. Lovely comfortable booth for 4. Also NZ wine available which I love, so all in all a great place to eat and drink!
reasonable prices, smallish portion sizes, food was well prepared and prompt, service was good but she was busy, drinks were generous, crab dip was excellent, crab cakes were small but tasted very good - only a little shell (that's normal and acceptable)
