We met friend from out of town here for supper, mid point for all of us. The place was packed late Saturday night and at first we thought that was a good sign but we were disappointed. The server was wonderful, very sweet and efficient. The food however, so-so was being kind, especially for the price! The salad bar was... More

Never had a steak like this before. No flavor. Service was good, salad bar was good but their top of the line steak had absolutely no flavor. It just kinda sits there on your pallet.

Niemergs Steak House has good food and good service. The dining room opened at 4 pm and we got there early because we knew it would be crowded during the Christmas holidays. They also have "Early Bird Specials" for those who come early. There was a crowd waiting at 4 pm, and it increased as the evening progressed. ("The Coffee... More

Nice server for the take out. Very convenient. Just average for salads and sandwiches. I prefer a healthier menu.

12-26-14.Fridsy night.. Bar was fine. Service in the resturant ok. Herded you thru like cattle. Salad bar...totally unacceptable staff didn't know what some the items were. Twice baked Potato's were cooked several hours before and kept warm. Shrimp out a box. My steak was burnt but cold..don't stop in unless you just want belly wadding. .

We dined at Niemerg's during our family gathering the weekend before Christmas. It is the half-way point for us to all meet. One member of our family had eaten at Niemerg's several years ago and had enjoyed a great meal. Unfortunately this time we were all disappointed. Our entrees ranged from steak to pork to chicken and not one of... More

We were a little worried when we showed up because it was packed. We ended up sitting in the bar area and everything was delivered quickly. There was a slight problem with a bad steak being delivered but they fixed it quickly. Food was ok but nothing wow.

This restaurant was recommended by a staff member at our hotel. It is obviously a family favorite, as our wait time was 30 minutes. Once seated in the crowded dining area, our order was taken quickly. The meals are all served with an exceptionally large salad buffet. All of the items in the salad bar were quite good, tasting fresh... More

Niemerg's is a great family restaurant in Effingham. It is home owned and the staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is great. It is a great place to meet family and friends for a cup of coffee and pie or have a meal. They not only have the dining room with a wonderful fresh salad bar and great... More

We travel up and down I-57 quite often, and always enjoy stopping at Niemerg's. We usually eat in the bar, because we love the free popcorn and often want to catch a ball game on TV. The salad bar in the dining is always very good too. Great food and drinks for reasonable prices.
