very good neighborhood eats

Coneys has a neighborhood atmosphere. The dining room is very cozy for now, but they are currently expanding. The food is good. I like the taco salad and chicken salad. They have good soup. I get the vegetable beef everytime, but many like their potato which is very thick and rich. They have a... read more

A locally owned restaurant with good Midwestern fare. A wide range of choices on the menu and the service is excellent. Love being able to eat outside at lunch during warmer weather.

What is not to like? Great atmosphere, super friendly and fast service. And the food is to die for! Be sure you save room for dessert. Grandma made it herself.

Nothing to dislike here. Such a small place, but the food is excellent, and the service is wonderful. Super friendly staff and simple menu with great taste.

....food, service and fair prices. Have dined here for lunch on a number of occasions, and they accomplished that each time. I particularly like their version of the horseshoe (they call it the stiletto). They make it with waffle fries instead of french fries, a tasty cheese sauce, and the winning touch is the large quantity of authentic, fresh and... More

Yes, they do clap for you when you walk in :) Be Ready for that. Our waiter was great(and also found out he is the son-in-law of the owner) Kept us... More

If you like pie, you will love this restaurant! I usually get the coconut, but the other kinds are equally delicious. We generally go for the homemade chicken and noodles on Monday nights. They also have very tasty breakfasts and pastries. Everyone claps for you when you go in, and it's a small but cozy seating area. Family-owned and operatated.

My husband and I went to Coney McKanes on a beautiful Saturday evening. We took advantage of the nice outdoor eating area. Our service was excellent and the food was delicious. If you are looking for a great place to eat outside this is it!
