Traditional small town sit down restaurant. Good salad bar, the usual American food menu, I like the breaded tenderloin platter. Clean, nothing fancy, friendly waitress.

Average fair. Wouldn't go out of my way to stop in to eat, but wouldn't avoid either. Only writing more due to required 100 characters by trip advisor. Let's see if this let's me submit the review.

We stopped here on our way home, Chattanooga, Tn, from Indianapolis, IN. I had the salad bar and the vegetable soup. The soup was home made and very good...I had two bowls of it. There were lots of topping for the salad. Our service was also very good.

Jim Dandy is a local gem. They are known for their burgers but we love it when it is chicken salad time! They have a large salad bar and also a breakfast bar on Saturday and Sunday. They also have terrific pies!!

This place has an impressive salad bar and excellent servers. The floor was extremely sticky as if they had washed it with a bucket of sweet tea instead of soapy water (even in the restroom!) It felt like a long wait to get our food. Additionally, both my entree and my husbands were overcooked. My chicken breast was tough and... More

Average diner food. Plenty of variety but lacking in flavor. Great service. Plenty of better options right in the area.

My husband and I decided to try Jim Dandy's in Greenfield, Indiana, as we were passing through. The service was very fast and efficient. The food tasted like it was homemade. It was wonderful! We had the buffet/salad bar during lunch hours. The broasted chicken was delicious and moist. The Salisbury steak was better than homemade. The salad bar had... More

We stop at Jim Dandy's for their breakfast buffet when we are passing through town. The service is always fast and friendly, the place is busy with local folks, and ample breakfast selections are available. On yesterday's visit the buffet selections included scrambled eggs, sausage links, bacon, pancakes, French toast sticks, fried mush, cream-of-wheat, fried biscuits, and fruit. Realizing that...

Jim Dandy is on old time favorite. Love their Jim Dandy burgers and onion rings! They have fantastic waitresses most have been there for a long time. They have a family atmosphere. Broasted chicken is great on nights you don't feel like cooking.
