BALTIMORE (WJZ)—Legendary Harborplace restaurant, Phillips Seafood, is picking up its crab pots and moving. But luckily for fans, they aren’t going far.

Kai Jackson reports.

The landscape of downtown restaurants is changing following last month’s stunning announcement that Phillips is leaving its 30-year Harborplace location.

“Their vision for the Inner Harbor did not really coincide with the vision that I felt the Inner Harbor should have,” said Steve Phillips, Phillips Seafood.

The Maryland seafood institution said it will move into the Power Plant space that used to house the ESPN Zone.

That was welcomed news to developer David Cordish who will be Phillips’ new landlord.

“When we were able to make this union with the Phillips family, we knew it was an easy decision,” Cordish said.

The big question is, how will this shuffling of businesses impact customers?

“I think Phillips is a great restaurant. I don’t know about them moving to this new facility,” said Sean Garrett.

The Bubba Gump Shrimp Company will move into the Light Street Pavillion that Phillips vacates. Still some see the Phillips move as a big loss.

“I don’t know if that’s a good move because that’s a big location,” said Tiffany Todd. “I don’t know if they’ll be as busy as they are now.”

Phillips plans to open its new restaurant at the Power Plant this fall.
