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

The breakfast is alright but nothing to write home about. I thank cleanliness should be better and the food ingredients are not at the same level they used to be. I... More

You will not be disappointed. Take a closer look: http://www.bannersbyalan.com/b&j.htm This is a great place to dine with family and friends. Ben & Joy's has been serving the area for almost 30 years and going strong. Stop here when you are camping at Deer Creek State Park. Just 5 minutes off I 71 S.

I highly recommend this restaurant because of the friendly atmosphere and wholesome good comfort food. The buffett was well stocked with fried chicken fresh vegetables. The service was very attentive. This is a good value but off the beaten path yet well worth a stop.

Visited twice in same weekend. Breakfast was excellent and service in the morning Saturday was outstanding. Textbook example of long time small town waitress. Food for evening visit was also excellent and service was pretty good. They were pretty busy and our waitress was a cook filling in.
