Lovely small town cafeteria that has been in business for many years. The food is quite good and at a reasonable price. Best of all their pies are fantastic. Don't pass them up!

When in the area, we have stopped here for many years. This restaurant is always busy, but don't let that stop you from eating here. There are two lines for quick service. The staff is friendly and the food is great! The locals hit this place often.

Where can you find a cafeteria that has prime rib on the menu? Mehlman's Cafeteria, Saint Clairsville, Ohio serves prime rib, and it is excellent. All of their food tastes like home cooking and the staff will make every effort to make your visit one you will want to repeat. If you like a generous serving of tender, succulent roast... More

Great for the older people. Great selection of food. Parking can be a problem. Pies are the best. Liver and onions are great.

I was recommended here by an employee of the hotel I was staying at. Food was homemade and tasted wonderful. The cafeteria was packed when I arrived but I can see why. I will eat here again when I come back to the area.

You like fresh, homemade food? This is the place to go! Decorated in '70's retro but the food is unbelievable good.

I never miss an opportunity to stop at Mehlman's Cafteria. For decades I lived on the east coast and traveled a few times a year to my hometown in southern Ohio so I frequently dined here. It's a part of our family fabric. Since about 1980 I have always ordered the same: roast beef, mashed potatoes, lima beans, deviled eggs,... More
