Real food,

Great home-cooked food. Two cafeteria lines to keep people moving, although sometimes one line lacks choice of deserts. Good variety when everyone doesn't agree on what type of food they want to eat.

If you are traveling through St Clairsville Ohio, you must stop here. You can't go wrong! We stopped here with a bus traveling group and everyone loved it. Many choices to satisfy everyone.

It is the BEST cafeteria style you'll ever encounter! I just spent my Birthday lunch there because we went there last year and I wanted my birthday there, Food was outstanding as was the service. The value was very, very reasonable. The first time we went I thought they didn't charge for everything.

We have eaten here for years and years. And it is ALWAYS good food. Some people who have written reviews don't seem to like it because it is cafeteria style. What they are missing is that you can see what is available before you order it....no surprises! And the choices are wonderful. They do have daily specials as well. The... More

Mehlman's will make you think of cafeteria's in a whole new way. A lot of the food is made when your order it, not just sitting on the line getting cold and even what is on the line, is kept at the right temp. Mehlman's is not cheap but then, good food seldom is. The place stays busy because even... More

I have stopped here many times with friends for a dinner. Food is always good and a great value. Plenty of room for big groups or small groups.

Whenever St. Clairsville Ohio is mentioned "Go to Mehlman's Cafeteria!" is the next thing that you hear. Mehlman's is NOT an all-you-can-eat buffet like a Golden Corral. It is a true cafeteria but once you are there you will wish it it was an all-you-can eat buffet! This past Sunday we had the prime rib - huge slabs of meat,... More

Mehlman's is a must when in the St.Clairsville Ohio area. The food is great..lots of variety and reasonable prices.Each weekday a special entree is offered ...on Wednesday's it is beef stew complete with homemade dumpling.The beef is always tender and it is covered with a rich brown gravy. The other stew staples, potatoes, onions and carrots are not forgotten. Ample... More

Great Food, Good Selection, Neat and Clean facility, Fair Price. I eat at Melhman's regularly and cannot brag enough about them. The offerings are consistently good and the price is right.
