Every time I’ve eaten at the Phoenix 269 the food was incredible- the service is perfect. I love the atmosphere and the patio. It’s a cozy, family run business that makes you feel like your eating with family! I had the shrimp dish / it was delicious. The ice cream pie was unbelievably good! I’ll be back.

How did we not know about this place. It's truly a hidden gem. We were welcomed by the staff as we walked in with the choice of inside or outside dining. We chose inside that evening. We were directed to the specials were which were displayed on the chalkboard behind out table. The bus girl promptly brought us water and discussed her favorite menu options. The menu is limited, but everyone found something they liked. The drinks offerinfs were plentiful and prepared quickly and perfectly. The appetizers came out in a flash, as if they knew what we were going to order. On cue, the entrees were served hot and delicious. Upon clearing our dished we ordered the house made ice cream cake and key lime pie for dessert. The pie could have been a bit more tart, but that's just my taste. Overall, I'd give the Phoenix full marks for an absolutely wonderful dinner.

We made outdoor reservations, so we were seated. Relaxed and before we knew it, we didn't know nothing. Food, service, atmosphere, everything, outstanding. Chicken Milanese was delicious.

We dined at The Phoenix Restaurant last night first enjoying the beautiful bar drinks ?and delicious rose ?wine. Our reservations at 7 pm promptly secured a lovely table in the bar area all set up with water glasses and decorated with a pretty candle ?. Molly our wonderful waitress quickly took our Beer Battered fish fry orders prepared with hand cut fries, macaroni salad, and coleslaw—just a perfect tasty dinner! ???❤️

I don't see what there is NOT to like about this little place. Excellent food presented graciously by an experienced staff, unpretentious decor, convenient parking.

I had a certificate I bought through the radio station before Covid. Of course I didn't use it before we went into lockdown. Then felt bad going to use it after. I went there a few days ago, certificates in hand. Asked to use them (expired) and I was told they'd take them at face value. I was pleased with that, so at least I didn't lose any money. There's inside, outside patio (which looked nice) and bar seating. We sat at the bar. If it was warmer, I definitely would have sat outside. As it was, there were three tables occupied outside and a few inside. They had two beer on tap, an IPA and a lager. I was happy they had at least one IPA. They advertised a watermelon margarita. It looked good with a fresh slice of melon in it. All the alcohol behind the bar looked top shelf. The bar seating had a pleasant atmosphere and comfy stools. We got the bang bang shrimp for an appetizer. There were four nicely sized delicious shrimp. We shared our entrees of a burger and a fish fry. I enjoyed both immensely. The fish was light and crispy cod. It came with Greek pasta salad, fries and freshly prepared coleslaw. I took home fries and a small piece of my fish. Definitely enough food. When we're in the area, we will be back here.

Very small portions. The fish fry is laughably small, almost like a half a fish fry. You shouldn't go somewhere to eat and leave hungry it's just bad manners
