Food is good, service was horrible Won't be taking guests again after Danny, our server rolled his eyes at us. Appetizers were served with our meal, when I asked for the sauce I ordered with my food, he literally rolled his eyes after he ignored me.

The food really is good, the prices a bit high but for g*ds sake do not go on a Friday evening during snowbird season. I had the Au Gratin Scallops which were quite good, also a Margarita (ok, 10 bucks, a bit high on the price). an't remember what the others in the party had but nobody complained about the... More

Had dinner this evening at Phillippi Creek. The parking lot was pretty full when we arrived at 5:15 but we were able to give the keys for the complementary valet with a very short 90 second wait. Given the option of being seated inside immediately or waiting 30 minutes for a table outdoors we opted to dine inside. This was... More

Some visiting friends wanted to go there, so in spite of the fact that we have not been overly impressed during previous visits, we went. The setting is very nice, service is good, but the food is overpriced and not that good. Now that our friends have gone, we won't be going back. There are too many really good seafood... More

This is the second time I have been to Phillippi Creek while visiting. I love that it has been during the Stone Crab season each time! It is something I just can't get in the seafood world here in Boston and I think about it all the time. The juicy little claws (cold of course) and just perfect! FOOD: STONE... More

What a great casual fun restaurant. Ursula was a very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive server. Our food was delicious and we had a lovely view from out table. It was a little chilly the night we came, but we thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside because they had heaters outside.

For years we have passed by this restaurant! It was always a busy spot with a fun outside patio right on Phillippi Creek Every year we said we must try this place. Well this was the year. We were not disappointed. The seafood was fresh with a light,not greasy batter. We tried the combo platter and shared it. There was... More
