Food tasted fine, but were well into our meal (steamed snow crab bucket) before crab eating utensils were brought to the table.

Drinks were slow.

Minimal follow up from waitress.

The service was excellent! Our waiter was personable and was very knowledgeable regarding menu selections. We ordered all if his recommendations and I'm glad we did, our meal was delicious. Unfortunately, my husband and I thought the crab dip was too cheesy and lacked flavor, however, our second appetizer, the fried calamari compensated for what was missing in the dip. The white mango sangria was the perfect drink to compliment our broiled seafood trio. Overall, our meal and the service we received was remarkable! My husband proposed at Phillips Seafood and we returned to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.

We had a reservation, but our table was not ready. I ordered a cup of the clam crowder. It was bland and served lukewarm. For my entree, I had the farmhouse salad with a crab cake. The salad was very good, but the crab cake was also lukewarm. My spouse ordered the crab cake dinner. Again, the crab cakes were served lukewarm. This was served with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Potatoes were bland and served lukewarm. I prefer hot foods to be served hot. They missed this all night long. As I told the server, I ate it, I’ll pay for it, but I won’t do that again.

The food was outstanding. Service was less than enjoyable. We were rushed the entire time. We were enjoying our appetizer and the main meal was brought out before we were even halfway done. The appetizer was cleared before we could tell them to leave it. From start to finish, we were sat, had soup, appetizer and dinner in less than an hour. Not at all e relaxing way to enjoy dinner while on vacation.

Phillips in Baltimore, Maryland is a great way to spend an afternoon in the spring. It had been a while since I have been to Baltimore. We decided to go to celebrate a friend's birthday. I made a reservation at Phillips and requested outdoor sitting. Phillips agreed to my request when we arrived. The waitress was really nice and went out of her way to made sure we had everything we needed. The food was very tasty. I had the crab cakes and ordered a salad. I highly recommend going to Phillips when in Baltimore.

I was highly disappointed. I visited Phillips in Ocean City,MD and in Atlantic City a few years ago and I loved the food. So why not try Baltimore Harbor.... complete upset... $50 for a seafood bucket which was dry. I had the broil trio and there was a hair in my food. Drinks were watered down. Needless to say I will never go back. The menu is not the same. The server Greyson was amazing and supportive along with the Mgr on shift.

I thought Phillips was a premium place but I was wrong, its equivalent to a fancy applebee's

The food menu was pedestrian with nothing you wouldnt expect out of a standard american restaurant.

The lighting was nearly off like it was spooky cabin in a horror movie dark, like romantic candle lit dinner dark but in the entire restaurant

We had the shrimp spring rolls as an appetizer and it was tasteless but well prepared as if the chef really cared about what they made and presented but was told explicitly to make it as bland as possible, and the sauce with it as well, this was moderately saved by the pinneapple sweet chili sauce that was so good it we bought a bottle

The entrees we had were the crab cake special and the fish and chips . The crab cake was well prepared had no filler and tasted good and so did the side of mashed potatoes with garlic

The fish and chips where average but the fish was of great quality ...


All and all it was good but I had higher expectations

The waiter was initially attentive but the service decreased from there. We ordered oysters for an appetizer. Forty minutes passes the oysters never arrived. We asked our waiter for the status of the oysters he said he’ll check on them... then our meal arrived. At that point there was no need for the oysters. We ordered the pound of snow crab each for two people and one order crab cake sandwich. As the pound of crab legs arrived, we were not provided utensils. It was twenty minutes before the utensils arrived. We asked for them. It was towards the very end of the meal that we received refills. We planned on ordering desserts but then decided to go to another restaurant. Just wish the experience could have been better.
