My wife and I met our realtor here before we ventured out looking at neighborhoods and homes. Our realtor mentioned Phil's was an institution so we had to try it. We visited at lunchtime on a Tuesday and the place was busy. There is an upstairs and a downstairs and we sat downstairs by the front window. We sat down... More

Breakfast on the upper deck is one of my favorite ways to start a Saturday. The servers are very attentive and the food is good. The Mediterranean Benedict is my favorite.

Was recently here for dinner/auction with a large group of folks (~30). We were served a buffet of salad, fish, chicken, pasta, veggies, and rolls. All the food was excellent, but I went back for seconds of the chicken, veggies, and pasta! The staff was very efficient and did well catering to such a large group. Well done! I wouldn't... More

At on the roof top with my son after a long day at work. The service was great, beer cold and food was excellent. We shared the clam cakes and they were really good, a hint of lemon and the dipping sauces had a kick to it. I would get them again. My son had the french dip, said it... More

We went on a Sunday. It was very crowded and we had to wait for awhile, but it was worth the wait! And there were 6 of us which didn't make it easy! However, we were seated upstairs and so enjoyed that open area! What a great spot! The staff members were cordial and efficient. Each of us had something... More

I love the outside dining up top! Service is good as is the food! Nice inside seating too. Downstairs of course is the gold standard for breakfast in Wakefield. It's the kind of place that when you are home visiting you "have to go to Phil's!"

Phil's deck is a surprisingly pleasant spot for a drink or simple dinner in the summer. You are away from the traffic and instead have a view of treetops and a peek of the river. On Monday night you can hear the outdoor jazz from the Contemporary Theater's patio. On Thursday you can hear the musical performances connected with Riverglow.

We go to Phil's generally twice a year in the summer while visiting RI. We always go for breakfast. The food is plentiful, cooked exactly how you want it and the service is friendly and good.
