Always a Good Meal

Great place for good food and large portions. The prices are reasonable and staff very attentive. They have daily lunch and dinner specials as well as home made pies. It is always special for my son to drive down with the grandkids and eat here.

We had a early dinner at the Lewis Cafe in downtown St Clair on a Saturday afternoon @ approx 4:00 PM. Our dinner was tasty, reasonably priced and served in a clean and pleasant atmosphere. The Cafe was pretty busy even at this time of the day. Definitely worth a stop if you are willing to go a bit off... More

Great food with the small-town flair. The beef is raised by the restaurant owners and very good. Breakfast is served all day and but the biscuits and gravy are sold until they are out for the day. Gotta get those early! They make their own poppy-seed dressing for salads and often ship it around the country. This is down-home cooking... More

Great home style food. Rolls are to die for. Friendly staff with good service. Just minutes from the interstate on historic route 66.

You must stop here if passing through St Clair. We rode through while doing Route 66 and thought it was fantastic. The staff were all incredibly welcoming and also efficient. Service was swift and helpful and the food was great. The free soft drink refills were a bonus too. The cafe was busy but not rammed and we sat in... More

We stayed at the Super 8 Hotel in town (also good), I did a google search of nearby restaurants and that's how we found this jewel. Down home cooking is happening here at the Lewis Cafe. I'm in the restaurant supply business, so I can tell you the place is well kept and clean. The waitress we had was not... More

Our family of 6 was seated very promptly in this 3 generation gem of a restaurant. Daniel (generation 3) was our server. Our group ordered 2 of the daily specials, a half pound hamburger plus basic menu items. These meals were followed by HOMEMADE pie. What a treat!!

This Family Restaurant has been in business here for a long time, famous for coffee and pie. I find the daily entries a bit on the greasy side and a little dated. Service is slow (this is a slow area in general) and the dining room is functional and plain.

Take a step back in town and enjoy the old style family diner....been around since the 30's family owned. Food country family style....they grow their own beef so the steak and burgers are tops.....porch choices the same, grow their own. Breakfast served all day...... Don't forget to try the fresh home made pies, order ahead and take one home with... More
