We have enjoyed eating at Phil's Inn Resturant for over 47 years. We stop in at least once on every trip to Lake Erie. The portons are generous. But if you don't like spaghetti there is plenty on the menu to choose from. The prices...More

I have been coming to this place since I was in high school. Yes, the sauce is different, but that's Phil's sauce. I LOVE coming here for the oldish atmosphere and the good food. The servers are very friendly.

Spaghetti sauce was good. Not fond of the ravioli. Heard about this place for a long not sure it lived up to all the talk.

Phil's Inn Restaurant has been a staple of Port Clinton, OH since 1948! In a small town, that says a lot about any small business. Though Phil's may not be the fanciest, most up to date restaurant, it is unique. The atmosphere takes you back...More
