I come into town to visit family about once a year and we have a large crowd of about 20 every time. Grandma's Recipes is a small restaurant but they were able to accommodate us. We expected to be waiting so I can not comment on the wait - when you have 20 people you have to expect some waiting,... read more

My 2 year old grandson and I went to Grandma's recipes for lunch, once seated it took 20 minutes to receive a menu. And then took another 20 minutes for the waitress to return with our water and take our orders, I asked questions about the best deal for a 2 year old and feel I was told inappropriately what...

They served shredded roast beef when the menu clearly says oven roasted. The waitress Dee was slow and very sloppy when bringing our food. The food sat in the window while she waited on a table of 30 she said. Needless to say she says " I don't cook the food".

Grandma's used to be a regular stop with good food, big portions, and kind of rustic decor inside. It is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I had a chance to revisit after a few years, and enjoyed it again. Nothing fancy at all, just good food, and service.

I'd been told it was a great place for breakfast but found it to be lacking. I ordered a basic breakfast (eggs, sausage, potato, toast) yet it took about 30 minutes to arrive and cold. The place was not that busy and appeared to have plenty of staff but our server was always somewhere else. Probably won't bother going back.

Not a big Chain like Cracker Barrel or Bob Evans, Grandma's Recipes is a "mom and Pop" restaurant that serves good comfort food at reasonable prices. The portions are huge. Most dinners come with lots of sides. If you've ever eaten at a "meat and three" type restaurant down south (like Tennessee), you will like this place. The interior is... More

They make the most awesome banana cream pie! As a matter of fact I get it for party's and pot luck dinners and it's always a hit. I'd recommend sitting in or take out, either way their food is delicious.

If you want great food than look at know other place. Grandma's Recipes has great food, friendly people, and it is located on Richfield Road close to Center Road. Check it out for yourselves.

Grandma's Recipes Restaurant is a diamond in the rough. After reading some of the reviews already posted, the main complaint I seen was time and how slow it seemed to be. Please keep in mind that the food is cooked when ordered. When you order chicken it takes a while to cook, even when you are cooking at home. I... More
