The diner has some good food that remind you of the old diners that your grandparent's went to. It is ok for the price point and has friendly staff.

It's worth a visit. Not fine dining of course, it is a diner in a great location. All the sculptures on Philips ave are cool.

I live here in town and this diner is consistently good. The Cajun food is good, the kids always like their homemade Diner Dogs (corn dogs) & other items, and you can get a craft beer as well. The shakes are amazing & you have to try the Poutin! The last time I was there, I was disappointed that our... More

I was in Sioux Falls for business and I came here for lunch before leaving town. It was a 20 minute wait around noon on a Saturday. I decided on lunch and got a burger with sweet potato fries. The fries were just ok, but the burger was delicious. The service was great and the food came out very quick.

We heard of this restaurant from some friends of our so we thought we would try it. It was really a unique restaurant, since it is decorated as a 1950 dinner. The hamburgers are very good served with a deli slice pickle. You have a choice of homemade chips or fries. I would recommend the homemade chips. They have a... More

We went to the Phillips Avenue Diner on a Saturday night around 6 pm. We easily found close parking in Sioux Falls vibrant and busy downtown. We had about a 15 minute wait. The decor is typical diner and the wait staff was friendly, quick, and attentive. The boys shared a poutine appetizer, which they said was excellent. Two of... More

I've eaten here before and really enjoyed the food. BUT On my last weekend visit I arrived just before 11 but had to wait about 20 mins for a table. Finally sat down and was looking forward to their incredible breakfast menu- oh no after 11 they only offer a reduced selection. They call it "AM in the PM". Considering... More

Came on Halloween for dinner. All staff were dressed up - which was nice. I was away from home and missed the Halloween atmosphere there. Chicken Enchillda Soup was outstanding, as was the Cobb Salad. My waitress was very nice.
