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.

While staying at Deer Creek Lodge we thought we stop at Ben & Joy's for breakfast as we did not want to pay for an overpriced buffet which was all they had at the lodge. The food at Ben & Joy's was quite tasty and the service was excellent. We will be back when we are in the area.

Ben & Joys is a family owned and operated restaurant in the heart of Mt. Sterling. They have a good variety of menu items but I HIGHLY recommend the buffet. I first visited on a Thursday, when their buffet consisted of home-made noodles, mashed potatoes, vegetables, fried chicken and the rest of the works. Their noodles and their chicken are... More
