We have eaten here and liked it before, but not this time. First they put us at a table that was unlevel so we asked to be moved which they did but reluctantly. Their salad bar is huge and more than adequate. But when our steaks came my husband's medium was almost completely raw and my medium rare was overcooked.... More

Niemerg's is one of the most popular family restaurants in Effingham. The parking lot was full and there were dozens of people waiting in the lobby on the Friday night we were there. The lounge and bar was packed and people looked like they were having a great time. Food is plentiful and cheap: It's just not very good. I... More

During the trip from Minnesota to Florida, this was our first night on the road. Soloman at the Comfort Suites recommended this. Interesting "older venue" restaurant that pleasantly surprised us. Niemerg's has a wide variety of items on the menu, going from a nice steak to burgers. Since we were finishing a three week on the road trip, we opted... More

We are from Indiana and travel the country for our jobs. One of our drivers lives in Effingham and RAVES about this place. We finally had the opportunity to dine here and we were VERY pleased. GREAT food, VERY friendly staff (and I mean everyone) and the prices are better than just reasonable. Do yourself a favor, if you are... More

Simple, plain american home cookn', nothing exciting, nothing innovative, nothing special and not the place to order a steak (in spite of their claim). Freshly cooked food and friendly staff. A reasonable place to eat.

We were told at the American Legion hall that this was a great place to eat. It was open till midnight. We both had steak dinners and drinks and the bill came to thirty dollars. Great food and service. We ate at ten pm. Steaks were top quality. In fact everything tasted great. Super value.

This was our first time there, and thank goodness I had made reservations. It was Father's Day and we had 15 in our party. I was amazed how fast we got a table and served. They gave us two waitress and that really helped. The staff is well trained and know everything about what they serve. We all enjoyed our... More

Great homestyle food, fast service, and easy on the wallet -- what more could you want? Oh, wait, how about trying a piece of home-made pie? It's delicious!

Can't beat this place in town. For the price you pay you get a ton of food. Salad bar is great with a ton of options. Desert options are great too.

We ate on the coffee shop side of the restaurant while traveling. We were too early for the steakhouse side. The food was consistently good. The clam chowder was one of the best I have ever had. The southern fried chicken was excellent. Not at all greasy, cooked perfectly, great coating. The french fries were also good. The place has... More
