Family Night Dinner

It was not too busy. Staff was friendly, environment inviting and food was good. We are local and we will visit again. Compared to other Mount Pleasant dinner options, we give it four out of five stars. Thank you!

Very good food and service. We have to work in the area and try to eat breakfast and lunch once a week. We love the menu and have never had a bad experience

Unassuming little place that packs a punch of flavor. Coffee is served at a different price each day - it amounts to what the temperature is outside when they opened that day. Coffee was 53 cents on the day we visited. Prices are modest, so it's a cheap date or good lunch. The chicken fried steak was tender and well-battered... More

Just average food, sometimes way less than average, especially breakfast. I never go there unless the group I am with forces me to.

I have lived in MP for seven years and have visited Herschel's often. I have never rated it but I planned to rate it when I visited this time. I has been better, much better. The service was satisfactory. The food order was not completely accurate therefore it was not as enjoyable. I still give it a three and one-half... More

Herschel's has dependably good food. You can count on it. Though it's not a "sit down and order" style restaurant, the service is still excellent. Food is served timely and usually with a smile. Other fast food places request that you put your trash in the receptacles. Not so at Herschel's. There are no trash cans because they don't want... More

Stopped here for lunch and it was great. Had never stopped here before but the sign touting 35 years in business told me they must be doing something right. I had the chicken fried steak plate and my wife the chicken fried steak sandwich basket. The food was great and everyone there was very nice. They even offered us free... More

Every time I'm in town on business, I make sure to stop by Herschel's and get the chicken friend steak. It's tender, not overly breaded and has good flavor. The chicken fried steak sandwich is excellent as well. The fries are hot and fresh.
