Do not be deceived by looks......

Yet another Sunday lunch on the road, today it was Mount Stirling, Ohio. From the outside this place looks very shabby but this is made up with the taste of home cooking to delight. We took the buffet and were not disappointed by the variety of choice. From fried chicken to baked steak, the green... read more

Ben & Joy's is full of regulars. It is unlike any place I've ever been, and I'm an out of towner! It is a quaint, beautiful place to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

My husband and I are currently staying at Deer Creek Lodge. We were going to dine in at the lodge but after viewing the menu, we opted to go somewhere else. We found this little Mom & Pops place that had a killer buffet! It was down home cooked BBQ ribs, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, noodles, green beans, cabbage, and... More

Set in the small town of Mount Sterling, Ohio, Ben and Joy's Restaurant offers a buffet each Friday featuring all you can eat Perch. Perfectly breaded with flakey fish it is some of the best my husband and I ever have eaten. They offer home made applesauce and pies. Fried Chicken is regularly offered along with corn, corn bread and... More

Never been disappointed here, and visited many times. They have different specialties designated on differnt nights of the week for the buffet. I like RIB night the best, although the FRIED CHICKEN is always great and I think that is on the menu every night. I don't particulaly like their fish. It is OK, but not something I would specifically... More

Ben & Joy's is pretty typical for a small town. My husband and his parents had the buffet--they said the fish was good, but the chicken was dry. I ordered a club sandwich off the menu and was happy with my choice. Our waiter was pretty good, though not very friendly. The rest of the employees were more concerned with... More

This wasn't my first visit here, and certainly will not be the last. Each and every time we have stopped here it was like going back in time to the Sunday dinners at my Grandparents. The fried chicken, the corn, the mashed potatoes oh wow! On one occasion we brought my parents and even my Mom said "That's just like... More

My friends and I when ever we travel near Mt. Sterling will always stop at Ben and Joy's. The staff treat you better than family. The food is always so good and so much. The hot chocolate was to die for, so rich and creamy.
