I had broiled fillet of sole with a cold beer. Chose barley soup and (fresh) yeast roll instead of the salad. Soup was great! Sole fillet was very good. Locally owned single location in the midst of national chains. I would definitely eat here again!

I reviewed this restaurant a few month's ago. I stated it's not the glorious restaurant it used to be. I began going there 25-28 years ago. I laid off this place for years after an ownership change about 7 years ago. Started going back this year. I was disappointed on that early 2014 visit, but we went back last week... More

This restaurant use to be my husband's favorite place to eat, because you could get a full course meal, drink and dessert all rolled into one. Fast forward 10 years later. Wanted to go after church for a nice dinner with my daughters. (forget it) the restaurant is old, they never remodeled, even after 10 years. The service is not... More

We have been to this resturaunt several times. But each time we go the portions are getting smaller and smaller. I ordered a Philadelphia Sandwich that was suppose to be chunks of beef and green pepper with melted cheese over it. When they served it it looked like sloppy joe and there was hardly any meat on it for $10.Everything... More

This place is filthy..out dated...& overpriced. Corned beef used on Rueben is dried out lunch meat. Sandwich was greasy. $14 for a fried chicken dinner is ridiculous. Can't wait til they condemn this place & shut it down. I don't understand why people give them their hard earned money.

What a shame when I remember how good this place used to be. Obviously there has been a change in ownership in last 6 or 7 years. I only eat here maybe 3 times per year, when it used to be at least once per week. I only order their fried catfish or grilled calf liver. All other entrees are... More

We went to J.N. Michaels’s to have dinner with my half-sisters. They live about forty miles from us, so we took a chance on this restaurant. It ended up being a good meal. The waitress was very forthcoming in her appraisals of the menu offerings, and probably saved me from making a bad choice. My wife and I had the... More

I went there with my husband to have dinner after a concert "the Temptations REview" and the wait was a little long, maybe 20 mins. but it was worth it. We got a nice table, very good service and very good food. I then went back for lunch w/ my friend, only waited 5 mins. and good food, little pricey,... More
