I'm a baby boomer so I'm no kid, but when I walked into the dining area of this restaurant I felt like I was in the movie Cocoon. Other than myself and the waitresses, everyone looked to be over 70. I respect my elders, so being over 70 is not in and of itself a bad thing. It seems the... More

Yes, it IS country food, not too much unlike what you would find at Cracker Barrel, but you will find some great folks here who care about the generous portions and quality. Plus, you cannot beat their deserts!

Our tour bust stopped at Mr's Rowes for lunch and about 40 people were served promptly and deliciously. Their liver and onions were very good. Chicken pot pie was awesome. So many compliments around the table from everyone. The baked goods are mouthwatering. Just off I-81 at Interstate 64. Pies to go! Nice little gift shop next door. Nothing real... More

Many of the reviews are very accurate with regards to the majority of the food. I am not sure why, but the fried chicken was moist; however, it was severed luke-warm (not hot). It wasn't greasy, but the temperature was a problem with me. The fried apples were unique with nutmeg and clove. I could see that many people would... More

The food at this restaurant was on par with what you'd find at a Cracker Barrel. It's "country food" with lots of salt and butter. If you like this type of food, then you will likely enjoy this restaurant. They appeared to have pies and other baked goods that were baked on premises. However, we didn't try them. Not much... More

I don't want to sound overly critical of this restaurant, because it is obviously very popular. As we live in the Pennsylvania Dutch area where there are lots of wonderful family restaurants, I was expecting really delicious homemade food. I just did not have that experience at Mrs. Rowe's. Service, while friendly, was rushed. I found out why when we... More

My daughter's first impression was that it may not be good. I cant brag enough...was delicious. Conveniently located next to Best Western. Could've eaten there every night we stayed, but wanted to venture out. Kids menu was great food. My daughter eats chicken fingers at most restaurants and she claims they were the best she ever had. Get the southern... More

I'll stop by here because I was staying in the area and kept seeing a crowd here. The food did not disappoint and was very good my coconut cream pie was also very good I think I will go back

Very good breakfast but lunch and dinner portions are extremely small. Most of the servers are friendly but a couple have bad dispositions.

Four of us had lunch, I had fried chicken which I enjoyed and a wonderful pecan nut pie with ice cream. My partner did not enjoy very much, no taste of garlic in the garlic mash and horrible tinned green beans. Think the other two enjoyed. Staff very nice and helpful, so all in all a pleasant experience and would... More
