Good family restaurant

We stopped here for dinner on a Sunday night. Only half of it was open, as they were remodeling, but there was plenty of room. The food is what you'd expect from a family restaurant, and was very good. The wait staff is friendly and called some of the locals by name. This restaurant is nothing... read more

Always look for local restaurants when we travel, found this place through the yellow pages in the internet. Read their menu and had prime rib, fried chicken and all the rest of home cooked dishes. we went twice.

Our family went to this restaurant for lunch. The food sizes were not large and food was OK. Fries were crispy fried and greasy. Sandwiches were OK. Taco salad did not look very good. Service was fair. I would not recommend this restaurant. It looks tired down, inside & out.

The food is good and very reasonably priced. Great lunch place. The soups are very good, and I like the turkey sandwich.

Our waitress was friendly and efficient. Food was good, place could use an update. Not very busy but we were there for an early dinner on a Sunday evening. When I paid she asked if I was over 55 and then gave me a discount, which was very nice because I didn't know they had a discount for over 55.... More

Our table all liked their meals. I hear they are great for breakfast but we were there for dinner. Everything was good. it is not a fancy place but an affordable... More

Filmore's serves good basic home cooked meals. There are specials every day and the waitstaff are always friendly.

We had the taco salad and it was more than I could eat. The wait staff was friendly and the atmosphere family friendly.

Still the best place to go for breakfast, anytime of the day. Have never been disappointed with food or service. Our favorite is the skillet breakfast with pancakes. YUM! And I love to watch the birds at the feeders.
