We were the first ones seated in the back left dining room. When we left, it was busy. Lauren was our server. She always had a smile on her face and she was swamped. She maintained her composure during our meal. I give her a lot of credit. We started out with the Bruschetta on toast points. A bit too... More

Phil's is a classic Italian restaurant where you feel like family. Lisa, our waitress, remembered us even though we hadn't been in town for at least 6 months. She even remembered my usual order. I told her she looked familiar and asked her if she had been there long, she said yes and aren't you the guy that really likes... More

Came in at 8:45 on a Saturday night when they close at 10 and everyone was so nice, we didn't even know they closed at 10. Had the bread with garlic & oil, sausage/lentil soup, spaghetti with meatballs and chicken picatta. Everything was delicious. Everyone from the hostess, Bonnie the waitress to Tyler the busboy was so accommodating.

One of my FIL's favorites but my first time. Hostess and staff were friendly and welcoming, the selections from the menu were from basics to superb Italian dishes. Servings were plentiful and delicious. Looking forward to going back!

I met friends here for a birthday party. The place just feels old and dingy. The service was slow. The pot roast was very tough and chewy. I couldn't really cut it with a fork and knife. The waitress was unapologetic and just took my plate without offering something else. Big disappointment!

I stop in for lunch a few days later. Had the Maryland Crab Cake Sand. Very good but I passed in the Chocolate Cake,... More

Met friends here for lunch yesterday, easy parking, quiet older looking restaurant, courteous staff. They have a pretty good variety on the menu to fit most tastes. The meals came in a reasonable time and everyone enjoyed them. This is a good place to come and enjoy some good food and pass some good social time with friends.

Thank Roy C
