A great local place to go and get home cooked food

We love this place for great food that is not out of a food wholesale truck. My favorite is the Gyro Greek omelet as it is awesome and not something you will find just anywhere. The staff is very attentive and makes you feel like you are in aa small town neighborhood restaurant.

Always an anticipated good meal with good service, Family Tree was our choice for dining out today. The parking lot was relatively full this afternoon, but that never matters because there is always plenty of seating in this venue. We prefer to sit in a booth which was where were taken by the host as soon as we entered the... More

I have gone to this restaurant numerous times. For consistency , service and Cost - Reuben Sandwich with Fries and a pickle for $8.95 is a great value. Have had it numerous times. I go to this restaurant for this specific item - Excellent Choice.

The food here is not that outstanding. But it is basically good and super cheap. Eggs, bacon, coffee all done inexpensively. Service was fair.

Family style restaurants in Wisconsin, where I am from, typically have large menus, you are greeted with a smile and you are treated like family, service is wonderful, you get a lot of food and prices are relatively inexpensive. Quite honestly - without stereotyping these kind of establishments - I would have thought they were all the same no matter... More

Our group made a last minute decision to go to lunch after a memorial service. The restaurant accommodated our party of 10 even providing us with separate checks. The food was excellent as well a the service. The menu is extensive enough to accommodate everyone's taste and I don't think you can find more reasonable prices anywhere.

We picked up food for the family after surgery. Everyone was able to chose what they liked. Great rice pudding and lemon rice soup. Fish portions were large. Wishing they had delivery for my family. I live out of town and wish I could send dinner periodically.

A friend chose The Family Tree for a girl's breakfast.....Not impressed at all. There is a large menu and the prices are low, but the service is painfully slow and it just looks dated and worn out to me. It took quite some time after we were seated to have our order taken, and we were in a bit of... More

All of the Greek dishes are good - I like the Greek Fish and and the Buffalo Fish Fry best. Large restaurants with plenty of seating and big parking lot - crowded but almost never a wait. The "Family" has a long and successful history in Buffalo.
