We all know weekends in the summer mean an escape from the craziness of the city to enjoy the beautiful beaches of the Jersey Shore. Be sure to make a stop in Atlantic City this summer to take advantage of a Special Surf N’ Turf deal from Phillips Seafood Atlantic City. They’ve been located inside The Playground at Caesar’s for 11 years now, bringing their guests classic American seafood menu with an array of fresh seasonal fish and Phillips’ famous Maryland-style crab cakes. Not to mention premium steaks and other non-seafood items.
From their very beginning, they’ve focused on bringing the culinary traditions and welcoming hospitality of Maryland’s Eastern Shore to their guests. Phillips knows there is no replicating authenticity. Many of their recipes are generations old, passed to our chefs straight from the kitchen of Shirley Phillips. Over the past 100 years, they have grown the company by leaps and bounds by holding fast to these simple principles: serve classic seafood favorites, provide outstanding service, and create a memorable dining experience for guests.
Located on Level 3 of The Pier at Caesars, Phillips brings an upscale, interactive dining experience to guests with our exhibition kitchen, attentive service and sweeping ocean views. Beautiful dining rooms, romantic booths and a full bar create the perfect environment to dine on the freshest, finest seafood available.
Summer time heat has us constantly craving raw bar options. Phillips offers guetss fresh Oysters on the Half Shell and Shrimp Cocktail. There is also a great variety of hot appetizers to start your meal like Phillip’s Famous Crab Cake Minis, Crab Spinach & Artichoke Dip, Shrimp Cargot or Hot Sampler loaded with crispy calamari, crab-stuffed mushrooms, and crab cake minis. We loved the Shrimp Cargot which was all types of good with lots of garlic and herbs served in a hot cast iron dish topped with melted havarti cheese. It’s also fun that the Crispy Calamari here are served with a pineapple sweet chili sauce. If you’re looking for something besides seafood the Chesapeake Wings are a great option for crispy chicken wings dusted with Phillips Seafood Seasoning.
For your main course you MUST try Phillips Surf N’ Turf Summer Special for only $19.95! Guests will enjoy a 6 ounce cut of Filet Mignon with their choice of a Lobster Tail or Snow Crab Legs. This is surely one of the best deals we’ve seen in sometime. Other signature favorites at Phillips of course include the Crab Cakes served with tri-color potatoes and asparagus, they’ve also got Shrimp & Crab Cakes made with a spicy mix and served with a side of cole slaw and french fries.
We tried Phillips Signature Premium Broil Seafood Platter which allowed us to taste a little bit of everything including a split lobster tail, crab cake, shrimp skewer, and salmon tossed in lemon butter with a side of potatoes and asparagus. They’ve also got a Fried Seafood Platter with crab cakes, clam strips, and catch of the day. Jumbo Snow Crab Legs are a favorite and served by the pound. We also enjoyed the Crab Macaroni and Cheese which can be shared as an appetizer or available as an entree.
Phillips offers a Clam Bake for Two that is also available for one as the Captain’s Catch. This includes a whole main lobster, snow crab legs, shrimp, clams, mussels, red potatoes and corn on the cob.
