Groff's never changes, and that is a very good thing! We can always count on a consistently good meal. Prices can't be beat. Homey atmosphere. Always save room for a slice of banana cream pie for dessert. Of course we'll be back next year.

Someone in our party had today's special, chicken pot pie which looked homemade and tasted delicious. We were also celebrating our grandson going in the marines. We shared some nice conversation with the staff who also has a son in the military already. We also enjoyed the black bottom desert. The server was also very courteous and attentive.

The food is on par with generic diner food. Nothing is spectacular. I've been there three times over the past three years. This year, it was very slow with the meal and the restaurant was not crowded at all. The slice of pot roast I got was very fatty, although others in my party got perfectly fine pieces of meat....

We have been eating at Groffs for over 40 years. It was ok. The service was very good. The blackbottom pie was so good. Wish they still gave the free pie with dinner.

-4 adults and 1 child; I had Crab Cakes with instant mashed potatoes and a house salad. Crab cakes were okay (I had better), they had a lot of stuffing and very little pieces of crab. I was disappointed for paying $20.99 for this dish. The family had other items that seemed to disappoint as well. Father with fried chicken... More

Went there on our last night of our stay. My wife had the flounder and I splurged for the surf & turf. Both were cooked to perfection and delicious. Staff was tremendous and knowledgeable about specials and menu. Salads had some special greens. Wish we had found this restaurant, earlier in our trip!

Went here on a Saturday night with my wife, daughter in law and 2 small grandkids. Surprisingly there was no wait. Waitress was great. Everyone liked their meals, even the kids. This is not gourmet but is good family dining.
