Phillip’s Seafood at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

TEDDY’s RATING: 

It’s not often that I have to go out of town for work (alas, I don’t write my blog for a living.) So, this was a great opportunity to write about places outside my usual stomping grounds. This trip took me to Baltimore.

Even though I was out of town, I still found myself eating at yet another seafood restaurant. But this time, I actually had one of the few seafood dishes that I like, New England Clam Chowder. The restaurant was Phillip’s Seafood at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

The Phillips family has been in the seafood business since the turn of the century. Grandpa first had a crab processing plant in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay. In 1956, the Phillips family moved to Ocean City, Maryland, where they opened a small carryout restaurant, Phillips Crab House, where they sold the overstock from Grandpa’s plant.

The company has grown considerably over the last 50 years. They now have several locations along the eastern seaboard where they serve fresh seafood in a casual yet classy atmosphere. In addition to their Maryland locations, they also have restaurants in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Washington D.C. They even have several airport locations including ones in Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Newark and Savannah.

But back to the food, the New England Clam Chowder was good, a bit fishy for my taste, but nice consistency. My colleague ordered the grilled Mahi Mahi, which he enjoyed. And for dessert, chocolate lava cake.  Of course, they’ve got all the usual seafood dishes like lobster, shrimp, clams, and what they’re most famous for…crab.
