Hotel seafood restaurant with fresh fare and an inviting outdoor patio.
Poor Phil's offers a wide variety of seafood at reasonable prices. It's located in the Carleton hotel, adjacent to Philander's, which many consider Oak Park's best seafood restaurant; and although the atmosphere is definitely bar oriented, the food goes far beyond typical bar offerings. If you aren't a big fan of seafood, there are salads, chicken entrees, burgers, and pasta. Poor Phil's has one of the best shell-on cocktail shrimp appetizers in the city. Portions are generous.
