Good Old American Food

It's an america meat and potatoes restaurant with better than average road food. Nothing that special really but the quality is good enough, the prices an OK value and the atmosphere about what you would expect in middle america.

Comparable to eating at a nursing home or hospital cafeteria. Staff is overworked. Salad bar is usually a mess and restocked quickly. Many restaurants today offer several varieties of lettuce. Niemergs continues to provide cheap, preservative bagged iceberg lettuce. Not matter what salad toppings are offered, the choice of lettuce is awful. Iceberg lettuce preservatives are one reason for many... More

Still at 1 PM the restaurant was still very busy. The steak and chicken we ordered was very good. The steak was tender and tasty and the chicken was crisp and tasty. The reason for a very good rating was that the salad bar was sort of messy. But I would eat there again when we are back in town.

Stayed at the Comfort Suites across the way (super by the way!) Couldn't dine in because we had a dog so ordered take out..Would NOT let us take out the salad bar even though we offered to pay extra for our own choice of salad because " she just couldn't do it". Ribs tasted old...fried chicken decent but SERIOUSLY... Do... More

This is the third time we have eaten here--- if this restaurant were in our home town, we would probably eat here at least once a week! We always make it a point to stop here on our trips from K to NJ. The soups and salad bar are among the best we have encountered anywhere, and all the entrées... More

It is an area restaurant that is a great value for families. Have been a regular for years. Brass Rail is a great spot for drinks, lunch & dinner. The main dinning room provides a good salad bar. And The coffee shop is great as well. Try the Ham Steak for breakfast. Staff is very down to earth and efficient.... More

Very good, simple food. Quick service. Home made pies. Reasonable prices. Uses the same parking lot as Comfort Suites, so it is very handy if you stay at Comfort Suites.

We visited based on reviews. Nothing special. Not worth expense or wait. What a disappointment! Many in our party felt ill later in the evening due to the greasiness of the food.

Been going to Niemergs for years. If you are looking for a place to relax with great priced food this is it. It is a staple in the Effingham community and where all the locals and travelers go. Good luck getting a seat on a Saturday night during dinner, but they will work you in!!
