This restaurant is housed in a charming older home in Mayfield, Kentucky. If you are interested in architectural detail you will love this place. The crown molding is gorgeous. There is a nice menu with many choices that are reasonably priced. The tomato soup is just delicious as is The French Dip. The desserts are home-baked & scrumptious. The restaurant... More

I had a burger and it was good, but not great. Everyone with me had various salads and WOW!!, next time I am ordering one of their many choices of salads. **They are only open for breakfast and lunch and not every day

This is a decent enough place to eat. The prices are reasonable and the food is good. The potato soup is amazing, although I've had it when it's been way too peppery. Desserts are really good. Entrees are just ok, nothing special.

This restaurant is located in a lovely old stone house. I stopped by for lunch with my sisters recently. They have a good selection of soups, sandwiches, quiche, and salads. But the delicious pies were the high point of the meal. They had about 15 choices, so we had a hard time making our selection. We decided to share two... More

While visiting Mayfield I had the opportunity to finally go to Happy House with a friend from high school. We had an awesome visit and the food was excellent. Our waiter was delightful and will definitely visit again when I return to Mayfield.

The food is fantastic. I would prefer to see female only servers nothing tacky just something I like. Not a fan of the male server.The food is fine dining at a good price. I would love to see a wine list there.

Very nice old house. Food is stuff you love to eat for lunch and I adore the potato soup. If anyone says they don't like this place is because the have personal grudge for some reason. I love a family owned restaurant any-day over some factory style restaurant. Thank You happy house for giving one reason to love Mayfield, KY.... More

My family was invited to a rehearsal dinner at The Happy House. The 50 persons were promply seated in one of three rooms on the first floor. The wait staff quickly served our drinks as we began dinner with a shrimp appetizer and fresh garden salad. The steaks / chicken were complemented with green beans with ham and a baked... More
