What a variety of items on the menu. Children's menu was great too. Our server was attentive to our needs. A wonderful experience.

We eat breakfast at the Phillips Street Diner whenever we are in Sioux Falls. In the summer when we meet our children and grandchildren there we enjoy eating outside. The food is always good and the staff are just nice. Great experience

Stopped for a hearty lunch on a frigid day in May. My wife and son had hot turkey and hot beef sandwich. I had Mac & cheese. Portions were huge. Chicken and wild rice soup was also delicious!

We go here every time we are in Sioux Falls. My boys are in love with the shakes. Food always arrives quickly, hot and delicious. Waiters aren't bad on the eyes either. Good atmosphere, gray food and friendly service!

The diner isn't anything fancy, but if you want t good variety of comfort food, this is the place to go. It also has some of the best milkshakes in Sioux Falls

The food was good here and reasonable. The salads are generous in size. Had the strawberry spinach salad- very good. The meatloaf dinner was good as well but could have been a larger portion. Lots of people here- outdoor seating available too. For a diner...More

A couple of friends and I were visiting staying in Sioux Falls on our way to Yellowstone. Phillip's caught our eye immediately as we were searching for a local restaurant. We were very surprised by the huge menu and each meal was more than enough...More

I have ate a the diner twice. Once a few months ago on a Sunday at noon. I had the feature shepherd's pie. I could tell it was homemade and flavorful. But it was overcooked and dry. Today for lunch I tried the diner again....More

We stopped here and had some brunch. I wasn't sure what to try but the chicken and waffles were recommended so I tried that. It was yummy!! There was a special maple pecan butter to put on the waffle along with the vanilla infused syrup....More

This is a busy place! A little bit crowded as one would expect from an old style diner. Service was pretty good, and the food was average. Nothing stellar, but solid.
