Great Food, Restaurant nothing Fancy

This is a restaurant just west of town which has very good food at reasonable prices! The place is not fancy but the food and service are great. On the first visit had their Red, White & Blue Buttermilk Pancakes. They were large, all the way to the edge of the large platter and were served hot... read more

We were led to believe that JW Filmore is a great choice for breakfast. Well, our one time experience would not lead us to believe that. Upon entry, the staff was not friendly nor looked like they were happy to see us there. In their defense, they were busy, but there was plenty of staff to handle the volume. Once... More

Fresh food cooked right. What else do you want. Burger cooked to order. Kids were happy. They put up with our noise.

I was surprised at how good this was - I was expecting a big-boy style average dining and it was much better. It does have that sort of family diner look and feel, but the food is pretty good and the prices are great.

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.

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 fancy, but is very... More

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
