We always take visitors to 'the Diner'. Always crowded, but the wait never seems to be that long. Service & food have always been great. My personal favorite is the Banana Bread French Toast!

Old school diner offering a good selection of food. The prices averaged $8-$12 for dinner, and everything we ordered was delish. I recommend the chicken and mashed potato wrap!

Great food and friendly service. Busy on Sundays but worth the wait. They also have a nice patio right on the Sculpture Walk downtown. They have "old fashioned" menu options but the shakes are to die for. I love the S'more shake with real roasted marshmallows. Soooo yummy!

We stopped in here while traveling and had a good lunch. They have very creative takes on Mac and Cheese- bacon w multiple cheeses, chili, served over spaghetti with jalapeños, onions and cheese, chicken and waffles. The item that is the absolute best- BANANA MILKSHAKE. So rich and creamy- it's as if banana pudding married ice cream. Yummy!

We found this place by using trip advisor and everything that people said was true. The staff was super friendly and food was excellent. The atmosphere was fun. I would totally go back next time I'm in Sioux Falls.

We had a nicae family meal here and I honestly was expecting it to be not that great but the food was delicious, fresh and they even had healthy options like a veggie burger with a side salad instead of fries. Good choice with kids and nice outdoor seating.

A great patio when weather is nice with a wonderful brunch menu. French toast is amazing, portions are generous and omelet are stuffed with fresh vegetables. There is a city water feature next to the patio that is great if you have little kiddos that need to get up and walk around. Service was very friendly and fast! Would recommend... More

After wandering around downtown Sioux Falls we stumbled upon the diner. It was just the place we were looking for, casual, unique and with good food. We sat on the patio so we could people watch. Service was friendly and prompt. We started with the fried pickles, which were so hot we both burned the inside of our mouths! Still... More

Visited on the return leg of trip on a Sunday late morning/noon. Very busy! Friendly server was maybe stretched a little thin. Sticky noodle salad very good. Eggs/pancakes average. Shake was good, but not great. Cute theme and enjoyed seeing the old photos of Sioux Falls that are on the walls. Good variety on menu.
