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.

Phillips Seafood Ratings and Reviews
Ate dinner with my SO on Saturday night. Made reservation, but it was not full, so maybe I didn't need to. The specials, which you need to ask about because they don't give you the 'ole spiel when making introductions, is what really made our night. They have an off-season special Surf & Turf for 20 bucks. Its a 6 oz lobster tail & 4 oz filet mignon. It does not come with a side vegetable, but we ordered a side of mashed potatoes and it was a perfect dish for both of us, for about $50. The appetizer special, which was printed on a table tent on some but not all of the tables, was a Five Dollar Oyster & Crab Claw plate! Yes, I said $5.00, you get four oysters on the half shell and a dozen small pre-cracked and spiced crab claws. It was a great deal! Throw in a few craft beers on draft, tax & tip and it came to right around $100 for a date night at a waterfront seafood restaurant in the Inner Harbor.
The server was very attentive to us which is rare these days. He is the only reason I chose to not give zero stars. This was an anniversary dinner for my wife and I and we were hoping for some really awesome food. The atmosphere was pretty quiet and nice for the occasion. We ordered the crab dip as an appetizer which was pretty good. I ordered a Bloody Mary from the bar which was $12. The drink itself was not bad but the garnish on the drink was almost rancid. It included a shrimp, olive, jalapeño, cheese cube and maybe some salami. The cheese tasted awful, the salami had a white color to it and the shrimp was disgusting. I did order another one and the garnish was equally bad but the drink itself was ok. For our entree, we had the bake for two. It had zero seasoning on it so I assumed the kitchen staff just steamed it. My lobster was cold to the touch and the snow crab cluster I got was bad. The legs looked big but the meat inside was very small and didn’t have a good taste to it. I tried my wife’s cluster and it was very good and had the sweet taste that it should. We did use the valet parking at the restaurant and honestly, after spending $220 in the restaurant including the tip. I would expect them to validate the parking completely and not just give discounted valet parking. I don’t mind paying for good food and good service but the food was not remotely good for the money I spent. Next time, I will go to Cheesecake Factory or Stoney River.
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.
