Great stop, right off the interstate

Don't be put off by the older appearance both inside and out. This is definitely where the local's eat. Service was good, food was unexpectedly great for diner fare. Driving through, our choices were this, or a chain, so we went for something new. The fried catfish and fried (broasted... read more

I had the ham steak and eggs. The ham steak was huge! The wait staff was very capable and prompt. I was there with a work colleague. We were both well served.

This family owned restaurant is fantastic and delicious. The salad bar has been superb every time we have stopped in Effingham. The food is scrumptious and tasty. The superior quality of the food and environment is reflected in the large numbers of customers. This great restaurant is directly across the parking lot from the Comfort Suites, and it's a short...

This review is affected by the fact I was seated with a full view of the salad bar. Oh, my! I saw plates being heaped to full to overflowing with a huge amount of potato salad, macaroni salad, other carbohydrates in the guise of salads, topped with great globs of dressing and I thought, these people haven't eaten for days,...

This was the second visit to Niemerg's and the food was super. Steak, chicken, all were good. Service was fast, salad bar was loaded with goodies. The deserts, the pie was super, large piece of apple is recommended. We had breakfast the next day and it was outstanding.

I'm not sure what the bad reviews are about. This restaurant was PACKED. There are two sides: cafe and dining room. There were both young and elderly in this place. I ordered the prime rib and it was delicious. The best I've had in a long time. My waitress was very efficient and friendly. I will return to eat here... More

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
