Little voice told me to drop in, as it had been a while. Special: roast turkey dinner. I asked for dark meat, got it, carved off the bird. Never used my knife, as I could cut it with my fork! Cranberry sauce, dressing, mashed potatoes, salad. Generous portions. Delightful server. 100% delighted, and then some. If you're traveling (duh!) it's... More

We visited here quite a few times and every meal was delicious and fresh and the service was excellent! Very reasonable pricing and a good variety on the menu. Always a pleasure to go there. Good for families.

Great food for a decent price. Had tons of food and great service. The beef chubbies and crepes were perfect. Hash and eggs done perfectly. Diner atmosphere. Coffee on table.

Would not recommend!! I'm not one to write reviews ever, but this food was the worst breakfast I've ever been out for... The dollar pancakes seemed like they were those microwave pancakes - there were only a few and I didn't even get through them all. I hope the Metropolitan finds a new restaurant because even with a discount, I... More

I go here from time to time to support them because they are a good breakfast place with actual GF options. Waffles and toast are available GF. But be prepared because it all costs extra and your breakfast can top $20 in no time. Usually very busy on weekends.

Called in on the last day of our visit to Calgary. We all had traditional brunch menu items and they were well cooked and tasty. Prices were also quite reasonable. The restaurant was pretty busy so we had to wait for a while but the queue moved quickly.

Phils is a great place to grab a bite to eat. They have great service and tasty food. It can get a little busy for breakfast on weekends.

Then the food arrived and I received cold eggs and bread not toasted bread basically room temperature bread that was soft and wouldn't melt the butter spreaded on it. The... More

We had not been to a Phil's restaurant for many years. Deciding to take a break from Denny's we visited Phil's. This is a nice roomy restaurant, not as cramped as many Denny's or Ricky's. It was nice to have the coffee pot left at the table and the food was quite good. They have a fairly large menu and... More
