On a Thursday night, this place was hopping with a line out the door and a band playing. For us, it was too loud and we couldn't hear ourselves talk. When the waitress brought us our food, she spilled the salad dressing on the side,...More

The staff of the MOSS landing KOA RV site recommended us to eat at Phil's. I'm so happy they did. It is a popular restaurant but we didn't have to wait too long and the wait was more than worth it. Delicious and so fresh....More

As many people have written, the wait can be kind of long but it's worth it. I had the combination with cod and squid. Large portion of both plus fries and coleslaw. My wife had the shrimp roll and thought it was very good.

We drove about 1.5 hours to meet up with friends at Phil's Fish. Upon arrival, we jumped into a line that was probably 45 minutes in length. I must report that it was well worth the drive and wait in line. My friend and I...More

Get here early or you'll be waiting in line!! The line does move pretty well though, thanks to the staff that gets your orders placed quickly and correctly. It's a seat yourself place, and they'll bring your food to you. Clam chowder, cioppino, crab sandwich,...More

Phil's is a classic fresh seafood restaurant, featuring fresh, delicious, afforadable (this is not a white linen tablecloth, high priced place) seafood in a FUN, exciting atmosphere! There is always a line because it is so great, but the line moves quickly and is well...More

There is outdoor patio seating and I have seen dogs in there in the past. It can be very busy during tourist season, which might be distressing to a dog.
