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'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

After a night of partying, Phil's is a great place to have a late breakfast! Great variety of diner food. Have eaten a ton of menu items and food is average for this type of establishment...

The service was fast, even thought it was Saturday on a long weekend. Food was amazing, and seriously, they just leave the pot of coffee on the table for us to fill ourselves??? WHY DOESN'T EVERY BREAKFAST RESTAURANT DO THIS!!! Genius!
