If you’re new to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport or haven’t been there recently, it can be difficult trying to find your way around and familiarize yourself with the restaurants, retail businesses and other services available.
Fortunately, Sky Harbor offers plenty of food, drink and shopping options in Terminals 3 and 4 (there are no Terminals 1 or 2), as well as a range of amenities you may not know- be not, including a chapel, art exhibits, and services for people with physical or sensory issues who may benefit from a little more care.
Here is an overview of the restaurants, shops and services that await passengers at Phoenix Airport, organized by their location in each terminal.

24-hour restaurants at Phoenix Airport
Sky Harbor Airport reintroduced 24-hour dining options in 2022 after they were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But restaurant hours are subject to change with flight operations, airport spokesman Greg Roybal said. The airport’s website does not list restaurant hours because of this, he said.
Dining options are limited late at night and early in the morning, but Sky Harbor currently lists one restaurant in Terminal 3 and three restaurants in Terminal 4 that are open 24 hours a day:
- Panera bread: South Hall of Terminal 3.
- Zinc Brewery Grab and Go: Low A gates at Terminal 4
- Grab and Go missions: High B gates of Terminal 4.
- Nocawich Express Grab and Go: Low C gates in Terminal 4.
