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.

Where does one begin? The excellent service? The unique menu? I usually have a hard time deciding what to pick from this menu, it is never an issue because the wait staff at Phillips Avenue Diner have most likely tried every menu item and can guide you in the right direction after you narrow things down. If you live in... More

A group of five women stopped at the Phillips Avenue Diner on a Saturday morning for breakfast. It was a beautiful morning and we were seated immediately on the patio. Our server was prompt and attentive. We told him we were on a bit of a time crunch and he moved things along nicely. Our meals were excellent. Definitely a... More

They always have a special twist on diner food. The red pepper cream sauce on the meatloaf was delicious.

My husband had the classic burger with sweet potato fries and I had the cobb salad. We each enjoyed our meal and... More

Eating on the road can be nutritionally and calorically challenging - add a team dynamic and these challenges can become overwhelming. Well, if in Sioux Falls, I recommend the dinner. I had the spinach salad (OMG good) but I could have easily went for the chicken & waffles, a burger... You could take a wide variety of appetites to this... More

The food was very good and the service was excellent. the servers were friendly but not bothersome. We decided to eat there three more times and each time we tried something different and... More
