We went to Phil's this morning for breakfast and the restaurant was packed. We had to wait about 10 minutes which wasn't too bad and were shown to our seat. We only eat breakfast here and have never been disappointed! The pancakes are really good and I would say are their specialty. I had the buttermilk, the kids had the... More

Phil's is an alternative to breakfast, if you're feeling nostalgic. The service is great, considering the early morning I ate there. The food was delicious and plentiful, and a nice departure from this world of breakfast sandwiches. The coffee was a bit rough, but it worked. I would eat here again, especially given it's proximity to the hotels on Banff... More

I've driven past this place for many years, but have never stopped. However, after hearing that they have a number of gluten free items available, decided to stop for supper one night. The gluten free items are limited, as they are almost anywhere, but I was pleasantly surprised to find gluten free waffles and other typical "pancake house" items available.... More

The Phil's chain has been in Calgary for quite a number of years... and there are reasons why! I took my mom for breakfast, was treated to a great daybreak meal, wonderful service and an endless cup of fresh coffee. Thank you!

My family have been coming to this restaurant for years and we have always been satisfied. However today was a remarkably different experience. The food quality was below its usual average fare, the eggs benedict was not consumable. I made a friendly but constructive comment to the waitress when asked how the food was tasting, her response was defensive and... More

We ate at Phils since it was a family restaurant within walking distance from our motel. The restaurant is clean, the food was your average family fare. My husband had soup and a sandwich that he enjoyed. I wasn't very hungry so just had some French onion soup which was pretty good. I also ordered some apple pie to share... More

Convenient to the Motel Village area. Plenty of seating for groups. The food was good and the portions were very large. They are close to the medical centre.

I was surprised that the food was good to be honest, it didn't look like much on the outside or inside of the restaurnt. I ate here twice. First night I had the Ranchero Eggs with Guacomole, it was nice, fillling and eggs were perfectly done. Second time I had dinner there was Vegetarian Wrap with fries. It again was... More
