Come Hungry

We have frequented this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. We usually eat out over the lunch hour and have plenty of left overs for dinner. This restaurant is located right in the middle of the main drag and the service is GREAT.

McFarland's, in our opinion goes all out for a great Thanksgiving dinner. The meal is probably one of the finest in a restaurant on such a grand holiday. You'd think all this was a genuine home dinner and, in fact, it is because we were told they make everything from scratch (on Thanksgiving, that is). Otherwise, eating there the next... More

We went here with a big family group and our wait wasn't to bad. Food and service we're okay but certainly not up to what I was expecting based on other reviews I'd read.

We had a coupon to eat there. While the food costs are a bit high, the portions and the taste quality make up for it. The staff was also very friendly and helpful.

We had a delicious, fairly priced and fun breakfast here with our grandchildren and their parents. It was on a Saturday morning and we got super service. The waitress served us well and was super nice to the two children in our group. We sat at the "raising" table by request and a surprise to the kids. We had many... More

The pancakes were very good. The service was a little slow but hey they were busy. The restaraunt was very clean. They kept the tables cleaned off right when someone left they were cleaning the table off. Very nice welcoming folks there. I WILL be back.

We've eaten here before and never been disappointed. When you get tired of the trendy places and want just plain good comfort food, this is the place to go.

This is a great little restaurant with southern home cooked food. Be sure to get the cornbread! It's is sweet and delicious. The chicken pot pie is a good choice as well.
