Our meal at the Phillips Avenue Diner truly was comforting. We were there early on a busy Tuesday evening but were able to get in quickly. The comfort started with our server, Taylor, who was very friendly and helpful. I had the meatloaf and it was super. Talk about a dose of comfort food. My wife had the salmon chop... More

Most peoplele will scoff AT&T eating in a diner, but with THIS diner is different. The food is great as judged by Sunday lines of people waiting to be served. It is truly a local favorite. My favorite is old-fashioned chocolate malts made with hard ice cream!

I went here for milk shake with my boyfriend after we went on the Sculpture Walk. The atmosphere is really fun, the service was great and our milkshake was really good. It would be a fun place to bring children. Plus it is right on the main street of downtown.

The food at Phillips was amazing. We would recommend the chicken and waffles. Also the sandwiches (both egg salad and chicken salad) were great. Just like my Grandmas. Try the sweet potato fries, they were yummy. Malts were good too. Service was great. There didn't seem to be a lot of street parking but we got there quite early (5ish)... More

That's what you have to go there for. This is the restaurant and location were I first had this fabulous dish. I'm from Winnipeg, Canada and I can now say that a lot of restaurants in Winnipeg are now serving these. I just recently stayed in Sioux Falls again and Phillips Avenue Diner was Number 1 on my list of:... More

This was a great place for comfort food. Pot roast, chile, ect. Owned by other good restaurants. However we won't go back. Two different times there was hair in the food. We are done with them!

Our family loves the diner for all occasions because the food is tasty for both adults and children and the ambience is fun. We especially like going to the diner in the winter around Christmas time. The throwback exterior located in Downtown Sioux Falls gives you the impression you've just entered an Norman Rockwell painting. Couple this with great food... More

I had the breakfast poutine, and it was excellent. Big chunks of bacon, and delicious cheese curds. That's the only time I've ever been there, but based on that I'll definitely recommend it!
