Lots of choices at the buffet. The crab legs were well seasoned and the cuts of meat were delicious and tender.

It was our first visit to Phillips . 15 in our party . Everyone like the food , the fresh bread was a big hit but the steam crabs were awesome. Crabs cake was ok but a little under cooked.

I go to phillips every year I always say I'm never going back because of the price but I do. You really do get bang for your buck the whole crabs were so good this time I had a huge craving for them. Our servers name was Missy she was great very attentive to our needs but not intrusive.

The service is great! Waiters and Waitress take very good care of their customers. They clean up so quick. The food is excellant !! The variety is impressing. Ham, Roast Beef, Pizza, Alaskan King Crab Legs. Soups, Clams, Oysters, many different kinds of Maryland crabs in different dishes, Pasta dishes and this is only to name a few. And pretty good Desert stand.

There's a reason people line up around the block for this place! The original Phillips on 21st street in Ocean City, MD is a must visit when you're dining in OC. Whether you're a party of 2, or 12+, you can't go wrong with choosing this all you can eat buffet. They have the staples for a seafood buffet, Alaskan crab legs, shrimp, clams, mussels, crab cakes, imperial crab, fried clams/shrimp, raw bar, etc. plus a made-to-order seafood pasta station, seared soft shell crabs, carving station, kids buffet, and dessert bar with soft serve, chocolate covered strawberries, etc.

The tables are adequately stocked with paper towels, salt/pepper/various sugars/substitutes, and covered with brown butcher paper.

Bathrooms appeared to be well maintained and adequate.

We had excellent service from Sarah, who was so patient, friendly, and absolutely superb! She rattled off all the info we needed so expertly (as this was our first ever visit) and in a way that we didn't feel rushed or confused. She kept our table cleared and drinks filled and checked in on us throughout our 2 hour stay. We never felt rushed and always felt welcomed.

So, needless to say we experienced every part of the buffet. We will be back!
