Beautiful downtown Sioux Falls - great little old style diner with good menu. We loved the choices and especially the shakes! We sat outdoors and people watched.

My wife and I went in for dinner. The milkshake menu had such a great variety. This tempted us to order a milkshake for an appetizer. What a great decision! The shake was great and huge. We shared it.

I have been here twice. They are situated in downtown Sioux Falls and have been for quite some time. There is a history to the place and the decor is cool. They have the best chocolate shakes I have ever tasted in my life. Plus, they have this great chicken wrap with mashed potatoes, cheese, and ranch. Whoever thought to... More

This is a small diner in downtown Sioux Falls. The food, and the choices, were excellent. There were a lot of comfort foods on the menu. They make fresh deserts daily! Our waitress was very friendly and did not rush us. She made recommendations as to her favorites on the menu and they were delicious. I highly recommend this diner.... More

I took my 8 year old granddaughter here for lunch one Sunday. We had to wait about a half hour for a table but soon found out it was worth the wait! We were so impressed at the overall look of the diner! It really looks nostalgic! The kids menu was wonderful and gave her plenty to choose from. The... More

A recent business trip brought us to Sioux Falls and we wanted local comfort food after a long day of travel. This place was great. The service was good with a very honest waiter that was happy to help answer questions. The mac n cheese fritters were out of this world and enough to be a meal on their own.... More

We have always enjoyed the Diner in the past but this visit was a big disappointment. The food was below average and over-priced for what we received. Even the cake used in a dessert was hard and seemed stale. The bright spot was our server who was excellent, very friendly and accommodating.

On Phillips Ave. just N of 10th St. Street parking ( free at night ). Nice patio ( about 8 tables ) set along street surrounded by heritage buildings. Good selection of sandwiches and other items. ( We had the southwest chicken pita and ruben - both excellent ) Banana milkshake topped with whipped cream was the best I've ever... More
