Not a lot of restaurant choices in Newark so I gave this place a try. Food was fine, service was really good. My server Paola was very friendly and attentive, made me glad I stopped there to eat.

Newark isn't one of the most modern airports with the restaurant amenities that many other airports have. So, Phillips, while not being fine food is a decent option.

Prior to our early flight on a Friday morning we decided to stop in for breakfast. There is not that many places open that early or that even serves breakfast in the airport terminal. My wife & I thought our breakfast was just ok, not great. Everything seemed real greasy, especially the home fries. In addition, the toast was stone... More

We had a few hours waiting for a flight and decided to grab some lunch. Restaurant was conveniently located next to the American Airlines gates. We were warmly greeted at the entrance and shown to the seat of our choice. The menus had plenty of options. We settled on the crab sliders and clam chowder. We could not have asked... More

Had lunch before catching our flight. Crab cakes sliders were very good, even though this was at the airport. My husband had the Seafood sampler. Pretty good but a loft of breading. Calamari was not overcooked. A little pricey but what you would expect being at the airport. Definitely stop here if you want other than the standard airport fare.

We waited 20 minutes to be served and 30 minutes for the food. The place was empty!!! The food was not good, no choice of breads, came with half a slice of bread per serving. have been there before and had a much better experience.

bad food, bad service, very rude staff, Lavazza Italian coffee served as a hot soup, but the worst experience was the BIG rudeness of the manager, really a place to AVOID. Next place Rudy Tuesday much better, friendly staff and better service.

What a nice place to have some good seafood dishes while you wait for your plane. We enjoyed the crab cake sandwiches and lobster bisque. We even ordered more it was that good.

So terminal A badly needs a facelift but fortunately this restaurant has already had one. Bright cheery and good service. If you have the time for a sit down airport meal, this is your best option. We only had breakfast which is admittedly hard to mess up but we enjoyed the food thoroughly.
