Hometown, made from scratch cooking

This local restaurant has a great basic menu but also has daily specials. The prices are reasonable and the service is great. The only draw back is they are closed on Sunday's

My husband had lunch at Lanny's Restaurant today. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and my husband ordered the steak sandwich. When we received our sandwiches there was not even a pickle on the plate. You would think that they could throw a handful of chips on the plate or even a pickle. The steak? was nasty, they used the... More

Don't let the outside fool you-the interior is quite spacious and clean. The majority of the items on the menu are hand cooked and really delicious. I've tried the cod basket and found it to be fluffy and yummy. I was also pleasantly surprised by the burgers and breakfast. I have yet to order anything here that I didn't like.

Stopped here for lunch on our way back from Midland. First thing I noticed was the roomy, clean restrooms inside the front door. Found a seat near the back and was waited on right away. Ordered our food and within 10 minutes it was delivered to our table. The food was great, the burger was made from scratch not frozen.... More

My husband and I tried Lanny's for the first time today. We each had the Lanny burger, a cup of homemade chicken noodle soup and shared an order of fries. Everything was wonderful. The wait staff was excellent (Thank you Ryan) and the locals were friendly. We will definitely be back to try some of the homemade specials.

Where the locals eat... good food, good prices, small town atmosphere. Stop in for breakfast for the best deal, but food will be plentiful whenever you go. Cinamon raisin toast complements your standard breakfast. The wait staff is friendly and typical of small town cafes everywhere.

Ate at Lanny's for the first time yesterday: One special was Scalloped Potatoes with Ham. It was EXACTLY like the recipe my mother & I use. Awesome! They had actual REAL roast turkey with made from scratch dressing, too. I had the homemade chicken noodle soup and it was homemade; even the noodles!! Friendly & very competent staff. Nothing fancy,... More
