I reviewed Phillips Original Restaurant a long time ago. The food was very good and service was even better but not any more. Today was my wife's choice for a breakfast spot. She suggested Phillips. We entered and sat in one of our favorite booths, on the right as you walked in the door. The coffee was promptly served. I ordered the breakfast special with two eggs, choice of meat and potatoes. My wife ordered the one egg special with choice of meat. Even taking into consideration that I am a bit on the high maintenance side, we were rudely treated and the food was not prepared as we requested. I prefer my potatoes well browned and crunchy and the eggs cooked over medium. I like my rye bread grilled, not toasted, as this gives the butter a nutty flavor. Upon placing my order, our waitress became argumentative saying "ya get the potatoes da way dare're cooked". She gave a heavy breath, apparently in disgust, as I request the grilled rye and as she walked away from the table, she said, "Whoa". I felt as though my wife and I were totally unwelcome. I knew something was wrong as our meal was served within a couple of minutes. I immediately noticed the potatoes, which were barely golden brown and rather mushy. My eggs were over cooked. The bottom of the eggs had a dark brown lacy coating, indicating they were cooked quickly, at too high of a heat. I had to use a knife rather than just a fork to cut the eggs. My wife's egg also had the dark brown lacy coating. As our meals were placed on the table, our waitress quickly walked back into the galley area making it impossible to raise my concerns about the meals. It took several minutes for me to catch the eye of the other waitresses to ask for hot sauce. The rye bread, and I am not sure that it was rye, was simply warmed on the griddle. Basically it was warm bread with no crisp on the outside. My wife leaned over the table and whispered, I guess we're not coming here any more. In this restaurants jargon, Ya got da't right.
