There’s honestly not much to say about The Phoenix. I’d thought it was another Chinese restaurant so it’d been low on my list and I was surprised to hear it was actually a classic suburban American roadhouse style restaurant (it was even supposedly the previous location of Kayo’s Roadhouse). I guess nobody I know frequents the place or thinks to mention it. Plus it really seems to cater to the same aging alcoholic demographic that frequents Pine Tavern.
It’s a big place but not too busy, sort of comfortably underwhelming. Basic mediocre American dining experience. The burger was decent. Fries were good. Service cordial. Parking convenient.
Score: 3.5 of 5
Price: $12.00 with fries
Beer: Sunriver Vicious IPA
