    In 1956, Philip's started as a crab house selling excess from the family's crab processing plant. It grew into a 2-story restaurant that could seat 1400. There are now 23 locations nationwide!

    My mom (Lorraine S) was right in telling me they have great crab cakes...but they must have liked her better because she got 2 and I got 1! $11 for one crab cake is a bit pricey...

    For an airport, it is fairly good food. If you're in a hurry, maybe not the best place. Burgers take long to cook as our waitress Kendra informed us. Overall good food and OK service. (For an airport)

    Sooo, the food is good but it isn't Maryland crab. Just ask the servers. It's Asian that tastes 'just like'. Maryland blue crab. Chesapeake can't supply enough crab for the chain, whatever.

    The mini crab cakes were good and service was quick at the bar even though it was packed. My first order of calamari was cold so the bartender hooked me up with a new batch that was steaming hot with

    Crab soup was not up to Marylands standards. Id rather eat in Florida @ Clearwater beach Frenchy's! Burger was very good though.

    Not a great. I ordered carb cakes, mashed pots, mixed veg. and hush pups the crab cake had shells. The veggies were hot but not cooked, they subed frys, for mashed and didn't tell me, no hush pupies

    Try the Phillips Amber beer, but don't drink 20 glasses of it because if you did you would die.

    Dined here twice now. The waitresses work hard, but they are slightly understaffed. Food is mediocre - but there is sushi and a wine bar downstairs - venture down there instead.

    If you have some patience and aren't running late for a flight, Crab cakes are tasty but tiny. Takes forever to get service and expensive for the value.

    Service is quite slow. Had time for a drink, but 20 mins later and haven't seen server since she dropped off drinks. Place is slow, not sure what hold up is. Service better at Obrycki's in B terminal

    I will never return to this restaurant. I thought the airport location might be better than the D.C. Location but unfortunately it's not. :( I couldn't even eat the crab cake.

    Slow food service. Staff openly complained about speed of kitchen to customers. Out of roughly 20% of the items on the menu, including salad dressing

    Horrible service! Never refilled any drinks. The food is also just par nothing great. It taste all frozen the crab cake was cold and greasy the hush puppy's were also very bad.

    Yeah, slow service. Don't just blame the kitchen. It was 10 minutes before I had to flag down a server. Then I got my bisque after my entree!

    Avoid!! The quality, look and taste of the food is like a school cafeteria. Service was pathetic, it shouldn't take 10 minutes to get a beer! Do yourself a favor and go to Obrycki's.

    The mini crab cakes were good but you only get 5 super tiny ones for $12. Not worth the price in my opinion.

    Go somewhere else. Sat at the bar and got to listen to the bartender complain about how terrible her life and job are. Very off putting. Lobster bisque was very bland and void of lobster.

    Service is SLOW! Don't really recommend the Fish and Chips - seasoning is funky. Steamed Shrimp appetizer is delicious but if you have less than 40 minutes, skip it and head to Quiznos instead.
