Best pancakes

Tired of the average breakfast fare? Get your butt over to Phil's and have a real breakfast! Pancakes, omelettes, bangers and much, much more. Beats the well known pancake or egg breakfast restaurants by far.

The food is unreal. Big portions. The only thing is it's always busy and hard to get into. But if you are patient and can find parking, that's always a challenge there, you will not be disappointed. Staff are super nice and very attentive

I always expect less from any chain restaurant (Yes, I am biased). However, although Phil's isn't something I would absolutely rave about, I do in fact think they serve a better breakfast than 90% of other chain restaurants. On Sundays, during brunch, they are packed. I love the fact they are open for breakfast all day (until 8pm I believe)... More

Had breakfast here with 6 family members. Everyone ate like kings for under $100. I think that is a good deal. Omelettes are delicious, eggs were cooked beautifully and we discovered the joy of chubbies for breakfast. Little meat patties. The service was friendly and efficient. Portion size is HUGE so either bring your appetite or share with a friend!

We went this afternoon, after the brunch rush. When we arrived there were 8 tables and 2 servers. One looked at us and walked away without saying a word. We waited for 15 minutes before being seated by a waitress who clearly was not interested in our business. We then waited 25 minutes for her to take out order while... More

We've heard about Phil's for years and have been told it's 'the' place to go, especially on weekends. We found it old and dated, without the charm some older places have Our waitress was okay but you could tell what customers she was familiar with as they received friendlier service. Our meals were average size, some of the food was... More

Went for breakfast with kids, that kept hitting their heads on the wood on back of the bench seat. The waitress as she was serving the drinks her hair was dipping one of the drink glasses. The place has an old look to it which would make you think it will be cheaper than other places (was more expensive than... More
