How do I find out what keyword (phrases) a website comes up for?

How do I find out what keyword (phrases) a website comes up for? Is there a tool that looks at the on-page text and meta data text (and backlinks?) and tell me from that what phrases the site comes up for?

Do not confuse this with wanting to know what keyword (phrases) a website would like to be ranked for; Screaming Frog seems to work great for that kind of intel.
