Drove down to Phillips Avenue in Sioux Falls because they visitors guide showed dozens of restaurants there. We ended up at the Phillips Ave. Diner; a throwback to the fifty's and sixty's of old fashioned service and home cooking. We got there around 6:30 on a weeknight when all of the businesses around were closed. We still had a 15... More

Great place on the high street with outdoor seating and great food as well as milkshakes. We both enjoyed our meals and thought the prices were very reasonable. Service was adequate and we would recommend most everything on the menu.

This was recommended to us. It was very pleasant. They did not have anything gluten free which my sis is. That was a drawback. My friend had the apple pie & coffee. Easy, nice diner. kinda pricey.

We were passing through Sioux Falls with our friends on vacation and stopped downtown to see the river and falls. Going off of TripAdvisor's recommendation, we stopped at Phillips Avenue Diner and they able to accommodate our party of 10 outside on the patio. Kelly was an amazing server and gave great recommendations and of all the food I sampled,... More

We stopped in Sioux Falls on our way to the black hills and Yellowstone on our way from Wisconsin. My wife and I and our two kids had 2 orders of Mac and cheese, a BLT, an open faced turkey sandwich, and three milk shakes. The bill was $65 and I leave a nice tip, so $80. Yeah, each small... More

My family and I tried this lovely diner just at the end of lunch rush. What a great choice we made. We each had something different. The chicken strips, Mac-n-cheese, American salad, and the chicken strip melt sandwich were all good as was the s'mores milkshake. Great service too! We would definitely return for another meal!

We ended up here for dinner one night and were glad we did. The food and service was very good. My wife had a salad and I ate the Belgium waffle. Not only the food was good but the price was very reasonable.

You know it's going to be good when you have to wait for a table. It was a nice night and we took the hop on hop off Trolley from Sioux Falls Park to this fine restaurant. We had a group of 10 and only had to wait about 30 minutes on a Saturday night to be seated. Plenty of... More
