Phil’s is a popular spot. Plenty of food and drink options, good service. Very noisy and loud. It was hard hearing my husband sitting right across from me. Food was good and mid range prices.

Phil’s is my number one go-to place in Saugatuck. The menu is a little eclectic, but with enough mainstays to satisfy that “picky friend.” On my last visit it was unusually noisy inside, but I hadn’t noticed that on prior visits. There is a small...More

We arrived at a busy time for dinner with a large group. But they quickly rearranged a couple tables to seat us. Service was excellent. And all the items from the menu that we tried were very good. I was happy to see they had...More
