A group of us went to Phils Place for a meal. I found the food to be average and small portion sizes. Several of our group found the food over priced compared with other eaterys nearby.

Good coffee and muffins. Plenty of parking nearby. Friendly staff. For a small place a good range of inexpensive food. Try the fresh muffins they are fantastic.

Thank you for your lovely comments. Yes Oysters are the first to go we order up to 20 dozen a week but can sell 10 dozen in one day. Next time ring ahead and I will put some aside for you when I can.

Trip advisor is about food ambience and service not being nasty and disrespectful to anyone.
