Phillips Seafood honored the Maryland Watermen’s Association on the evening of Wednesday, June 3, 2015 with a cocktail reception at Phillips Seafood in Baltimore. It was a wonderful evening as members of the Phillips family, representatives of the Maryland Watermen’s Association and local delegates and councilmen gathered to celebrate another great season of seafood. Steve Phillips presented a check to the MWA for $5,742, a result of Phillips’ fundraising efforts in 2014.

Steve addressed the attendees, “I come from a family of Maryland watermen and have worked closely with local watermen all my life to supply seafood for our family’s Hoopers Island processing plant and our restaurants. Without them, our family business would not have grown to where it is today. We’re proud to stand behind the Maryland Watermen’s Association in their efforts to protect the heritage and future of our commercial watermen.”

This year, Phillips will continue to support the MWA through the sale of their Blue Crab Margarita and 100th Anniversary Cookbook, working toward a fundraising goal of $10,000. The commemorative 100th Anniversary Cookbook showcases original family and award-winning recipes. The cookbook can be purchased online and for every cookbook sold, $5 will be donated to the MWA. For every Blue Crab Margarita sold, $1 will be donated. The Cookbook and Blue Crab Margarita can be found at the Phillips Seafood Baltimore, Atlantic City and Ocean City locations.

Phillips Seafood is anchored in tradition and remains family owned and operated by the Phillips family. For more information about Phillips Seafood, visit www.phillipsseafood.com.

  1. Many years ago Phillips began twisting
    the reputation of Ocean City restaurants when they made a cold-blooded corporate decision to replace Maryland blue crab meat with much cheaper Asian crab parts . This change was hidden on
    Philipps Restaurants menus in Ocean City (try to find it!) and on packaging for Phillips’ Nationwide “MARYLAND-STYLE” crabcakes.
    How sad when the “KIDS” ruin the work of the parents to make cheap dollars.
    Try to find this information, even today!!! Maryland watermen suffered as a result. How hypocritical for these folks to profess great love for these same Maryland watermen. Ocean City publications are afraid to mention this because they need advertising from Philipps. Philipps disrespects Maryland families, especially customers, and all those in the MARYLAND crab industry.
    How sad newspapers do not do their homework and their ignorance gives deceit a good name

  2. You do realize that there aren’t enough Maryland crabs for a chain the size of Phillips to use? You do realize that it would be environmentally and morally reprehensible for a chain their size to sell MD crabs? If anything, MARYLAND should be grateful that Phillips moved toward crabs from Asia.
