I hadn't visited Phillips Seafood at the Baltimore Harbor for over 7 years and since they had moved into their current location. I thought it would be a great revisit to celebrate my husband on Father's Day. They DID NOT disappoint!

Although, the menu had been modified for the pandemic, the quality, taste, and temperature of the food were fantastic. And, the level of service was top-notch! Our server (on our receipt, her name reads Zaynab G), she was EXCELLENT! She was so attentive, friendly and nice that we spoke to her manager, Jason about how great she was.

I would highly recommend this location and anxious to return!

Our server Dominic or Dominique, I am not sure of the spelling, was amazing! She was attentive, courteous, and welcoming. My husband's food was delicious. I order a fish sandwich, a very simple selection. I asked could I substitute a salad for the fries. I found out I could not. There was no option to order the salad with an upcharge, which I found odd. When my meal arrived, I was not pleased with the look of the sandwich. I asked if I could have my fish fried in the Phillips Amber Ale beer-battered, instead of whatever it had been fried in. My conscientious asked the manager if that was possible. I was told no. I was never offered the option to order a different meal. I understood that it was Father's Day and the restaurant was busy but this was my first experience at Phillip's Baltimore location. I left the restaurant hungry. My husband's Father's Day dinner was ruined because his wife didn't have a meal. The manager took the sandwich off the bill. I left the restaurant hungry, dissatisfied, and angry. I can not in good faith recommend this location.

I went there before and had a whole lobster, so I took my son for Father's day and they did not offer lobster of any kind. Was very disappointed.

My food and my daughter’s was very good. However, my husband’s fish sandwich was cold!! And They did not offer anything beyond an apology. We won’t go back.

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.
