Phillips Seafood Restaurant Buffet is Fresh and Tasty | Ocean City MD

I know, today is the first day of Ocean City Restaurant Week Spring 2014, but last night I was invited to Phillips Seafood House Restaurant, so how could I resist.

As we walked in we were greeted by a friendly young lady who showed us to our table in the buffet dining area, telling us our server would be with us shortly. Moments later our server, Ryan, approached our table, greeted us and asked what we where having and for our drink order. Off we went…

For a pre-season Saturday night, it was busy in the buffet area, but as you can see the Dining Room has plenty of room for when things start warming up this summer.

And, as Phillips Seafood Restaurant Buffet is good eating, it is, also, a great place to have a bachelorette dinner. I met the bachelorette at the dessert counter, and though the bachelorette party is here in Ocean City, she says the wedding and honeymoon are going to be in the Dominican Republic. I wished her many, many happy years with her fiancee…

Got to love a Hobby Horse, and I love the one’s here at Phillips, good shape, adds a little flair to the atmosphere.

Time to check out the buffet, and it’s a long one, up one side and then across the whole back area. Starting from where we were sitting, first on the buffet menu was the Beef Bar

I love the way the Dessert Bar comes next along the buffet line, perfectly placed to make sure you stop and look, I know I did, I know I stopped back after trying a little of everything else on the buffet. Didn’t have enough room in my belly for anything, thank goodness the pieces they cut are small, so had the brownie,the cheesecake, and a little soft vanilla ice cream, yummy! (Hey, could I give you an honest review without trying some dessert, it just wouldn’t be fair to you, right?!)


Let’s start talking tasty, these fresh, steamed clams, shrimp, crabs… were fresh and tasty, hot with what ever toppings you may like. Then, a little fruit and/or salad to cleanse the palette before moving on to the next courses…

OK, I’m guilty, I passed right by the Pasta Bar (yeah, not the Dessert Bar), didn’t want to fill up when I saw those oysters, clams, crawdads…

I have to hand it to the gentleman cracking those little babies open, talk about efficient, like a machine, guess it just takes a little practice, but this guy is talkin’ to us and crackin’ at the same time, I was impressed.

And, when I sat down to slurp down those little babies, they were good! Yes, I have always loved oysters and clams, and these were as good as I have had anywhere. Crawdads, well I lived in Texas for a few years, so though they were delicious, well…

There was one other station, forgot to take a picture of it, it was the Fish Bar, which I did sample 3 very tasty fish, and 1 dry one (it was one of the last pieces in the batch, so…). I must say, it is most definitely a must stop at, you will be tastefully pleased.

Phillips Seafood Restaurant Buffet is a Delicious Deal!

Well, that’s it, very friendly atmosphere, food is delicious, not rushed, nice background music and the service (thanks Ryan) was great, definitely one of the best seafood buffets in Ocean City Maryland.

During this Ocean City Restaurant Week Spring 2014, and I do not know if the buffet is part of their special pricing, but Phillips Seafood Restaurant Buffet is definitely a candidate for best raw bar and best restaurant in Ocean City Maryland.
