We eat here a lot. They have great food and a wonderful bartender. A salad bar during dinner that has delicious home made salads, slaw, jellos etc. Old fashioned home cooking.

Have been going for here for years. The owner is a wonderful lady full of stories about Old Saint Charles, the development efforts to keep the historic area alive, and be sure to ask about the Ghost! The amaretto chicken dinner is one of my favorites. She also has some of the best sweet baby carrots...my husband hates carrots, but... More

Had reservations for a party of 4 (a birthday celebration). Seated promptly for our 6:00 pm reservation. It took the waitress at least 20 minutes to even notice we were there. She took our drink order and returned pretty quickly. we then waited again for at least 20 minutes before she came to take our order. The other couple ordered... More

Wonderful, spooky atmosphere! The food is to die for! I like to go for lunch when the prices are cheaper.

My family likes to eat at only one restaurant in St. Charles….and that is "The Mother-in-Law Restaurant" in the historic area of Main Street. The atmosphere is very quaint, and the food is always excellent. The decor reminds you of visiting an historic period of a time gone bye… I would highly recommend it. Ask for the owner, Donna.

Loved this place. Have eaten lunch here three times - and each has been a great experience. Very much enjoy the gracious host and owner (Donna), and the place has a charming atmosphere. The sound traqck from Somewhere in Time is playing on the CDE player in the background. Reminds me of visiting someone's wonderful grandmother's house. Very historic area... More

This was a delightful little place. The menu is not extensive, but the food we ate was delicious. They make some tasty homemade dressings. My husband's chicken salad was yummy. For dessert, they make their peach cobbler into a sort of parfait. Brimming with antiques and the gracious atmosphere of a by gone day. Highly recommend it.

I love this place. I have had many friends from England to dine with me here. The owner will make you feel at home and want you to sample something that she has made. The Brits like it because it is old and familiar to where they eat at home. The menu is small, but all meals are great. She... More

Lovely old home turned into a restaurant. Nice and cozy in the inside. They do have a few outside tables. We ordered the special per the recommendation of the server. It was the BLT with side salad and a wedge of watermelon. The server raved about the BLT special, that it was the best ever with homegrown tomatoes. It was... More

Ate here for lunch and was not impressed with the lack of vegetarian choices. I was looking forward to trying the Celery Seed dressing...it seemed to have good flavor but it watered down the salad. Weird. My DH liked his burger and my SIL liked the Cordon Bleu. Our waitress was nice but a little slow. Not her fault we... More
