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.

Service was slow but once the waiter arrived he was very nice and courteous. Food was very expensive. I had the seafood platter and honestly it tasted like Red Lobster. Others with me had crab cakes and said they were excellent and crab stuffed shrimp which they also said was excellent. Maybe I just picked the wrong item but I way over paid for mediocre

Great seafood always wins my wife's heart, especially crab. Had reservations for a specific time and was very early. Was seated right away with no major issues. We both wanted crab legs, the Clam bake was just way to much for us to eat, so we got the Catch. Wife does not like clams/mussels, so gave her the crab legs and ate the clams/mussels. We both shared the shrimp and one lobster.

So, if a couples going there for any special occasion, just order appetizer and The Catch. But if come to eat, then by all means get the Clam Bake.

The special occasion for us was a combine of anniversary, birthday and Valentines.

It was delicious! Our waiter was very attentive and very informative of the menu. He was busy, we could see, but he took the time to check on us several times. Excellent waiter.

The food and staff are definitely better than 5 stars more like 10 stars. Our server Ziray was phenomenal. I drove from Pittsburgh to Baltimore for my wife and my anniversary, this is our go to restaurant when we go back to Baltimore.

Ordered a ginger ale, and never received it. Clams and mussels tasted like they both still had sand in them. Really that salty. Scallops had NOOOOO seasoning smh. I won’t be coming back.

Very disappointed by prices and quality of meal. our dish was $30/person, but knowing seafood prices, our dish was only worth $27, so my fiancé and i walked away unsatisfied and still hungry. Everything was cold, had a bad fishy smell (like the food had been sitting out), and taste was not good.

Well established restaurant with a reputatiion for excellent seafood. Highly disappointed to learn their shrimp was imported frozen shrimp from Thailand. For the prices they charge, the shrimp should at least be from the Gulf. Average entree is $30.

I will not return, nor will I recommend this restaurant. There are better, more affordable seafood places in the area.

I have been to Phillip’s a few times and never have been disappointed. We went in on Saturday evening and sat in the lounge. Live musician was awesome to go along with the food, beer, and wait staff. Overall a great experience from start to finish!

Food was fabulous with huge chunks of fresh crab in the soup, in the crab mac & cheese and no fillers in the crab cake. Delicious! Shane was a great server!

My boyfriend and I ate at Phillips during Baltimore Restaurant Week. We were very disappointed with portions of our meal. My boyfriend’s steak was rare, even though he asked for medium. And the rolls and chocolate cake were very stale.

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.
