The food is excellent and the prices are extremely cheap. How do they stay in business? Service was excellent also. The only problem was that there were many, many people waiting for a table, even at 5:00 P.M. on a Saturday night.

Niemergs is easy to find right on the main road in town. It is attached to a hotel but a great place to eat. You walk in the entrance, and there are two directions to go. Looks like you can either go in Niemergs Restaurant or you can go in Niemerg's Steak House. We chose the restaurant and were seated... More

We like to stop here on cross-country trips. The chichen livers are cooked just right. The pies are excellent with a lot of variety. It seems to always be crowded, a good sign. The service is great.

After a long road trip, this was a great dinner spot for a family with small kids. There were lots of people, but the wait was only 5 minutes. We hit up the salad bar right away after being seated. Lots of good healthy options on the salad bar. Service was friendly and fast. Food was just OK. The chicken... More

I rated this restaurant as 4 of 5 because it was local and friendly. If you are looking for a violin player or sommelier you will be disappointed. If you are looking for reasonably priced food, with fast friendly service that you can bring the kids to but still get a glass of wine; you'll be pleased. After 12 hours... More

Juanita, our server, was excellent. Her recommendation for the chicken dinner was spot on! She was extremely friendly and helpful considering we had never been here before. We appreciate the kind service around the holidays and after traveling across country for 4 days... :)

We were seated quickly and food order was taken promptly. Food order was excellent. Watetress was courteous and attentive, to our needs. She failed to give us the specials of the day, but took or appetizer order.

The menu is variable. Steaks are fabulous in flavor and size for the price. All Burgers are great. Love the porkchops.
