Serving Southern Homestyle Food in Mt. Pleasant for over 35 Years.

We were hoping to be in time for their breakfast when we stopped by recently, but, oh, snap, we were just a few minutes too late since they stopped serving breakfast at 11 am. No matter.

It may have as much to do with nostalgia as anything but Herschels is a family favorite for us! The menu has lots of variety and everything is what you would expect in a counter service type diner. Staff has always been friendly and attentive. If you see a Herschels you should drop in and grab a bite to eat.

I stopped at Herschel's for lunch recently. It was a very busy place, with the restaurant nearly full, and several cars backed up at the drive thru window. You order your meal at the counter, like at most fast food restaurants. They give you a number which you put on your table, and one of the employees brings your order... More

Stopped by the other day for lunch. Ordered, grilled chicken salad. It was ok, but absolutely not fresh! Lettuce was a mixture of fresh and crispy and wilted. Service was not friendly at all and a little slow I thought for a salad. Probably won't be going back there for awhile.

BY far the best local fast food type restaurant. The menu is versatile and offer good salads as well as dinner plates and the usual burger type stuff. Herschel's is good because of the people as well. Ms Thomas is the best. She has great employees who offer friendly service. This is our go to Sunday night after church spot... More

One of the worst experiences in a restaurant. Staff was very unfriendly. Food was overpriced and not even close to average.

Hershel's is a great family oriented restaurant! The food is wonderful and the wait staff exceptional. After every meal they offer you a cup of ice cream! If you have a taste for some good down home cooking, Hershel's is the place to eat

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

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!
