Nice Lunch

My wife and I went here for lunch before visiting the Fossil Rim Wildlife Preserve. The high quality food and service were excellent. Big thumbs up for the home made pickles! Wraps and sandwiches. Very nice experience.

We just popped in for a quick lunch after discovering that the Riverfront Grill was closed. Soup of the day, a good sandwich, and a huge glass of iced tea all made a fine impression. Everyone in the place seemed to know everyone else. There are thousands of books lining the walls and in shelves (hence the name). I'll go... More

This is a great little restaurant especially for kids. Every time we come through Glen Rose, we eat here especially if our 6 year old granddaughter is with us. She loves the playroom with dress up clothes and books and a kitchen area. The food is also excellent. They make the best wraps and salads. Granddaughter loves the dinosaur shaped... More

We visited this restaurant after a very hot visit to Dinosaur World with our sons who are two and four. I usually do not enjoy eating meals with my sons, but this was an awesome experience. This place is great with kids. We got a table right near the playroom, so we could see the kids while they played in... More

We stayed in Glen Rose to do some hiking and visit Fossil Rim. We stopped in here because we were all very hot and wanted something cold, i.e. salads/sandwiches. All my children had a salad, my husband and I both had chicken salad sandwiches. The waitress was friendly and prompt and the food was delicious. I had the peach cobbler... More

My daughter and I drove to Glen Rose recently just to have lunch at the Storiebook Café and to visit Dinosaur World. We found the little restaurant to be quite charming and packed with customers. We stood at the front waiting for a long time until a server in the back thought to tell us to choose a place to... More

I would recommend coming here with the ladies while out for a day of shopping and fun. Good pie if everyone wants to enjoy a treat. The food is good, but nothing to write home about. Be sure you are not on a tight schedule as it is not food served fast.

Absolutely the best food. Fresh, lots of variety. Fantastic salads, sandwiches and wraps. Peach tea is awesome. And the dessert menu is good too. Very clean. Very friendly waitresses.

This is the best place to have a family lunch in Glen Rose. There were 8 of us and the service was great. They have a back play room for kids. The kids sandwiches came in dinosaur shapes!
