Cheap place for steak

First-the restaurant is divided when you walk in. To the right is a larger menu and salad bar. To the left more a sit down type meal, no salad bar. Not marked. Sat down in section for sit down and then after questioning waitress we moved. A little embarrassing. Otherwise food was good and... read more

We have eaten here several times - always good food especially the buffet. Prices are reasonable and the portions are more than enough for the average person. The bar is another amenity that has a casual atmosphere.

Lovely local restaurant within walking distance from our hotel. A lot to choose from on the menu which was great for our family. My dad loved the chicken livers. Pasta was served hot and perfect amount of seasoning. Loved the soup and salad bar, it had a great selection. Staff were super friendly and service was fast. Be sure to... More

This restaurant is right next to the Comfort Suites and was recommended by the front desk,so we just walked across the parking lot. It is a big place with an extensive menu. We were seated immediately, placed our order and were invited to partake of the salad bar. Our dinners arrived promptly and were excellent. Desserts looked very good but... More

I was driving today from St Louis to Chicago. Interstate 55 was so messed up that I decided to go via Effingham and I 57 instead. This is how I happened onto Niemerg's in Effington. First of all it's easy to find. Secondly, it's a step up from a Ponderosa. Thirdly, the waitresses are more responsive than in a chain.... More

We always enjoy this restaurant when in the area. The fried chicken is the best, but they also have pretty darned good chicken fried steak. Just a good all around eating facility. The staff is wonderful and friendly and they take large groups. Might help to call ahead. Pies and cobblers are also really good.

We often stop here when on our way south or southwest or on the way home. We were there for breakfast this trip and excellent service and food as always. Our total cost for breakfast was $12 - when does that happen! I had the biscuits and gravy and they were really good - homemade biscuits and gravy with large... More

Stopped here for lunch after one of my clients told me this was the place to go. The restaurant is dated, but don't let that stop you. The food is very good, tastes home made and the service is great. Coming from the Chicago area the prices are crazy reasonable. I had a fried chicken lunch special that tasted just... More
