Once you negotiate the tricky new roadway here you will enjoy the large parking lot with all free parking. Upon entry we were welcomed warmly and guided to our table very quickly. Windows here are very large and let a lot of sun in. It is a very good thing that there are shades on each one that the customer can lower for themselves because it can get pretty hot with the sun in the South. The waitress was friendly, patient and knowledgeable. She took my child seriously as he ordered for himself and interacted with him as though he were any other customer, making him feel all grown up! The portions were large and tasted good. Everything was served hot and quickly. The waitress came around often to check on us and top coffee up. They have two types of hot sauce, Tabasco and Frank's. They also have HP Sauce too! Yum! If you are needing a quick breakfast this restaurant does the trick!
Comfort food place like Denny's but I think the food quality is better than Denny's. Don't mind it. Good atmosphere for a family restaurant to have brunch and gatherings.
All in all good service staff are friendly and polite. Breakfast was different in the sense that they rename products they have there own style of a sausage which was tasty. It’s also the old consent of the waitress calls the order into the kitchen which l haven’t heard in a while. All in all breakfast was tasty and enjoyable you also get a coffee flask which is good saves the waitress coming by with coffee pots.
I ate here for my birthday two years ago and decided to try it again today, and it's still my favorite restaurant! The food is delicious, highly recommend!
Decided to stop here in lieu of Denny's and was not disappointed. Food and eggs Benedict were delicious, and portion sizes were good. Coffee was also shockingly good and they left the pot at the table which was excellent. Slightly more expensive than Denny's, but you're supporting a smaller franchise and can feel good about it. Would return no doubt. Did I mention the waitress ran out after us because one of my party left his leftover box? Top notch.
Good place to start a routine of going out after covid19 lockdown. Staff were very nice and portions were good. Pancakes were as delicious as always.

My Aunt has Always loved Phil's, That's here Go to place, Still Great....

Good food at a decent price🙏 Had the Phil’s Mix Grill, and really enjoyed it. Our server Samantha was fantastic, very polite and went out of her way to make us comfortable. This is my first time to a Phil’s but definitely won’t be my last!
Phil's is one of my favourite places to get breakfast/brunch. It has a classic diner feel & they have really consistent, delicious food and they're one of the only places that has crepes. When I get takeout, they often give me free mini pancakes as well <3
The service was good after they got going. The portions were good, and filling. Supplied us with lots of coffee. Thanks for letting us keep our vehicle there while we were at the Stamps game!
Good food at a decent price. The french toast was delicious. Are server smantha was very polite and went above and beyond to make our experience great. I enjoyed all the food that I ate and I'm looking forward to coming back.
The staff at this Phil's are always friendly, courteous and very helpful. The food is great and the portions are large! There's plenty of parking and they sanitize each table after every customer, a safe and healthy place to go for breakfast! They are only open until 3:00 p.m. so get there early.
Don't think the Waffle & One was worth the price. My friend got 2 pieces of toasts, 2 eggs, 3 bacon, hash browns, etc. And the price was similar. The coffee is from an urn. Refillable though.
Left a funny joke on my breakfast box that made me smile! Great start to me day thank you! Plus the food was absolutely delicious! Good job guys!
Great buttermilk pancakes! Very fluffy. The strawberry toppings and whip-cream was an added bonus Pork medallions were decent. The hashbrowns were moist , but still tasted good Service was fast, and good was solid for the price! The only thing that i thought was ok was the coffee (Not bad though)!

It's been several years since I last ate at Phil's. With Covid-19 shutting restaurants and travel down, I wasn't in Calgary much. However, I attended Stampede with my niece (an annual tradition) and we wanted breakfast before we rode down to the grounds. My go-to is still the minced ham and scrambled eggs. I take reduced quantity shredded hash browns and an English Muffin with grape jelly to go with my favourite breakfast, along with milk and water. Food doesn't have to be fancy to be tasty and satisfying, which Phil's understands very well. I look forward to catching up with this location again soon. Keep up the great work folks!
Always a pleasure always busy great service good food in a clean timely fashion 5 outta 5 for Phil's
Today had a late lunch and it was amazing, Francis (apology if I spelt it wrong) was super sweet and helpful and would definitely return because of her :)
The coffee is excellent. The food is a bit pricey..... I had veg grill cheese with onion, tomato and green pepper and that costed $14 which seemed to high
Great staff here, would love to find tastier coffee, especially because it’s open early and I’m an early riser. I guess when you get an entire carafe it will be weak. I’d rather have one good cup than several mediocre….Especially at a breakfast place. Will come back for the hash browns, yum.
I had a great experience ordering from Phil's. The food was still hot when it got here, as well as they gave us free pancakes and everything tasted delicious!!
Great place to eat for us seniors on a limited income Food was great, hot delicious and plentu of it. Looked great too!
Friendly, fast service. Amazing food, can't say enough good things about them here.
Always love the friendly notes on takeout and interacting with the staff. Food is great, service is great.
Needed to grab a brunch. They are creative with spacing patrons which works great!! My waitress was Samantha G . She was so sweet, smiling, fast and very professional! She definately understands customer service! I chose a Build your own 3 egg omlet with spinach, tomatoes , muchrooms and green onions. The no pale sad old eggs. It was bright in color , all the veggies , although stir fried were fresh! Spinach still had crunch and the mushrooms were soft but not mushy from sitting around. With tea it was $18.53. She even took off the .60 for the toast I didn't want. I was able to sit with no pressure to leave to finish my tea well after I'd finished eating and my plates cleared. It's a bit old and dark and worn BUT it's close to all the hotels and I'll be back tomorrow for an early breakfast!
They went above an beyond for my order! They even gave me extra mini pancakes for no reason. This is my second time there and both times great experiences .. so thank you!
I love Phil's. I don't know why, but this is one of my favorite places to eat.
The pancakes were amazing 🥞 but the eggs benedict were not so good. The eggs were cooked perfectly but the back bacon was pale and unappetizing and the hollandaise sauce was almost a jell in the same unappetizing colour as the back bacon. I had peaches and raspberries on my pancakes which was delicious. It was super busy with a ton of kids so it was exceptionally noisy. $44.00 for breakfast seems a bit high but I think it's typical for a breakfast restaurant now. We could have probably gotten a better meal for the price though. Searver was really good and the coffee was really good too. Beef cubbies were really delicious according to my husband.

Great food! And I also got free mini pancakes!
Reliable breakfasts. Good coffee
Big portions and great taste! The biggest disappointment is that they close at 3 pm. They were (pre pandemic) open til about 8 so you could enjoy their food for all meals of the day. I had veal cutlets with mashed potatoes and gravey and mixed veggies which were fresh, not boiled to death! I had no room left for dessert!
The food was great also the staff outstanding Thank you
Had my order to go and they gave me free pancakes, the toast bag had a drawing and joke on it and a lollipop. Was very generous
The morning is wonderful when you get phil's pankakes. You should certainly give it a try! Food was fresh, presented well, and made to order. If you are in Calgary, you should have breakfast at Phils 🙂
Breakfast was good. My favorite is beef chubby. But they just keep getting smaller.
Classic Phil's, can't really go wrong. My *basted, medium, eggs were much softer than I expected, but at least I had pancakes to soak up the yolk. Hungry. No matter. I remember *locals breakfast* at the Banff Ave location and in Canmore back in the day, I still prefer Phil's to De***s, or Ri***s grill... Hostess and wait staff were great 👍, See yous next time!
Great breakfast place for all ages
Great food for the price, really friendly waitstaff! Definitely get yourself a side of Chubbies!!
The omelette that I had was very good it was a generous helping the servers were prompt and courteous
Its the same great service ive received for over 3 decades and the breakfast food was ok. The coffee still tasty. The omelet was not so great. The hashbrowns are still the best both the shredded n cubed as attested to by my 12 yr old n myself. Just it still covid wish more people would get vaccinated would love to have normal or closer to normal back. Im glad Phils was open n still being great at their service.
Great service with a dog friendly patio. In town for the weekend came here for breakfast both mornings. If you’re deciding between here and Denny’s, go here!
Amazing foood our servers name was Stephaine she was amazing so good at her job we will be back me and my hubby thank you so much for your guys above and beyond service ❤
Awesome breakfast food! You will not be disappointed!
Good service, food is serviceable.
Breakfast was great but restaurant had dusty windows sills and worn out tables. Place looks worn out since my last visit
Great little patio. Food and staff were amazing. I will definitely go back.
Hard to find good shredded hash browns these days, y'know?
Fast, friendly, polite service! AND they let the dog on the patio
Nothing special but that's exactly what I'm looking for at Phil's. Simple menu, nothing fancy, fast and friendly service.
Always a good meal. Love the chubbies.
Food was delicious and very friendly staff.
I don't eat anything here except the tasty peach melba crepes. I crave them once in a while. The restaurant on 16 Ave makes them best.
Well sanitized and very clean looking. Restaurant recorded our contact info, should they become aware of any covid follow that might be needed. Coffee & breakfast were delicious, everything prepared EXACTLY as was ordered. Speed & friendliness of service were excellent. Glad we chose Phil's today, haven't had chubbies in years and they're still EXCELLENT!!
From friendly staff, nice food,,all worth it
Always stop here for breakfast when I'm in town. Great service and great food 👌

Apple pie with cheddar cheese is a meal in itself. Often go here before or after appointments at Foothills Hospital, as it’s a 5 minute drive from there. Any place that gives you a pot of coffee to keep at the table is good, in my books.
This is exactly what you expect (and want) from a breakfast diner. When you order coffee they just leave the thermos at the table. They don't season their potatoes at all which is really good for people with diet restrictions who struggle to find safe restaurant options. I asked for no toast with my meal and they gave me extra potato. Competent, accommodating staff. I'll be back.
Always great food,service,staff and selection at this classic . Great specials,great breakfasts with quick service and very courteous and friendly staff. AHS guidelines in place. Comfortable atmosphere and easy parking. 🇨🇦🥓🥞🍔
The ladies here were super nice! Prices were great and they checked in with me just enough but not too much.
Best breakfast best staff! Northern Breakfast is the absolutely delicious. Pancakes are also my favourite. Decent prices and food taste real vs Denny or Smittys.
Calgarys classic breakfast stop, pancakes , french toast and the rest of the usuals
Amazing customer service and amazing food. Ordered 3 pancakes yesterday and toast only to open the bag and find that they gave us so many extra mini pancakes and chubbies. In addition, the pancakes were some of the best I’ve ever had.

Would highly recommend this location. Staff were extremely friendly, food was delicious and we were given a few items free of charge. Will be by again!
Had the most amazing experience for the 4th time in a row. Would strongly recommend this location to be the one to visit. Ask for Steph to be your server. She is ABSOLUTELY the best
Yummy food, and they gave us some extra free pancakes :)
Service was good, covid protocols were being followed. Meal arrived hot and quickly.
Waitress was friendly. Fish and chips were good, french toast, egg,bacon were enjoyed. Cornbeef hash have had more enjoyable. No flavour.
Loved it! I ordered online and the club sandwich was good, the gravy was good, loved the cute little messages written on the boxes and the free samples, but the real star was the monte cristo! Soooo yummy Was my first time ordering but will definitely order again. 10/10stars
I took my dad here when he was visiting me in Calgary because I know he doesn't care for the types of restaurants that I tend to frequent, and I was pleasantly surprised! The food, although nicely plated, wasn't "fancy" but it sure was good!! Big portions and great flavours, no compromises made in an effort to widen the profit margins. I can see why this place has been going for as long as it has. Prompt friendly service too! I'll be back!!
Phil's is always great, good food and friendly staff.
What a fantastic breakfast. And piles of gluten-free menu items for my wife. The staff was lovely and funny. I would totally recommend over Denny's or Humpty's.
Phill's is the best place for breakfast, they were nice enough to give us free pancakes and sausages!
Been coming for 20 years always a good meal!

Great pancakes!! Best breaky place with best prices, way better then denies!!!
I have been going here for years and love it here! The servers are super friendly, the food tastes amazing and the prices are great! I have also ordered from here off of Skip the Dishes and the food is always hot and tasty. Highly recommend and the atmosphere is great! My only suggestion is the place needs a renovation to bring it into the 21st Century! But I completely understand why it isn't lol.
Great food and very generous and even provided complimentary samples. Thank you
Good local restaurant and great service
I've always liked Phil's! Decent pricing and serving size too. Friendly staff and good food.
Always a hearty and good breakfast. The value here is phenomenal and the food is fairly good. It is a step up from the other “chain” diners. I often come here when I have a hankering for some homemade pancakes - I always out the fruit compotes on them ... cause why not?!
Pleasant place for breakfast and go to work not much time to enjoy it great staff will be back again soon
breakfast was fantastic
We arrived in Calgary and we were trying to orient ourselves to the city. We decided to walk around and in one shop asked where we could go for breakfast. It was noted that Phil's would be the place to go. There are many locations throughout the city. Where it did not blow us away, the choices were varied and the food was plentiful. I ordered the oatmeal which did not disappoint (way too much). The waitress was attentive and was by frequently for coffee refills. From my perspective it can be deemed as classic diner fare, comfort food galore!
Great value on breakfast items. Some of the best pancakes in Calgary, with a variety of tasty fruit toppings and several great syrups. Usually fairly busy, so expect to wait a bit to be seated. Staff are pretty friendly and attentive to your needs. Always a good, tasty experience at Phil's.
I love Phil's. This is a great option if you are craving breakfast (I have enjoyed all of the locations). The steak and eggs here are excellent and at a good value with a generous portion. The gluten free options here are quality as well which I appreciate. Thanks Phil's!
Great classical Canadian restaurant. Family and big group friendly. Breakfast all day. Customize your meal - build your own omelet. Quick and pleasant service. Good for small kids, desert, coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner and special events. Simple, classy and pleasant.
Great family setting for breakfast. Nothing fancy. But great french toast. I had the eggs Benedict, which came with perfectly medium poached eggs. I substituted potato pancakes for my side, and they were delicious, served with apple sauce and sour cream. I'll definitely be back!
Very good home cooked food and friendly service. Highly recommend them.
A great local and historical restaurant. They renovated since I was last there but that hasn't changed its classic Calgary atmosphere and amazing variety of dishes. The menu is spectacular, filled with unique items on every page. It is worth checking out if your driving by, visiting Calgary and want an experience. Since it's close to Banff Train station it's also worth a train ride to experience.
It's a great family oriented place that I have enjoyed for many, many years. The staff are friendly and the food is great value for what you get.
Fast and friendly service. Food was very tasty.
Great service, and the food came out piping hot and fresh, and very tasty!
2 things are important when you go somewhere to eat. Food and service. Phil's on 16th Avenue will give you satisfaction for both. Our dishes were tasty and our waitress was excellent. FRANCES was smiling, very kind and peaceful person. Peaceful person who serves you makes your lunch or your breakfast a good moment. Thanks to FRANCES !
Delicious food, kind staff and so happy there were gluten free options!
We enjoyed a casual family dinner this evening, with most taking advantage of the all day breakfast menu. Although the restaurant wasn't busy, service was slow, but friendly, and the food came out quickly once our order was placed. Servings were a good size, the food was delicious and prices were affordable. The only improvement I'd recommend is an accessibility button to enter and exit the restaurant; the vestibule is small, making it very difficult for one person pushing a wheelchair to manage both doors. I'm looking forward to our next family meal at Phil's!
