“Great place to meet and eat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Living near a place puts a harsher judgement on a place...so this would be a 5 if I did not eat here 3 to 5 times a week with a group of people.. This is a Greek family owned place. It is ALWAYS spotless and well ordered. Food is tasty, plentiful and fair priced. One of our favorites is the Big Greek omelete. It is 3 large eggs, gyro meet, tomatos and feta cheese. It comes with either potaos or grits and toast or biscuit. YUMMY!!! The only draw back is it can be very noisy and crowded, particularly on Sunday morning. All ages are welcome. High chairs or booster seats are available as are booths or tables. Credit cards are accepted. In 2.5 years it has always been an 8/10 or better in ALL aspects of business. THey will make it right if a problem occurs. ENJOY! IT IS ALSO CALLED THE LAKE WALES FAMILY DINER.

“Great Food, Great Prices, Great Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

When we entered the Lake Wales Family Restaurant, we were greeted and seated immediately for a late lunch. We noticed how clean this restaurant was. The lights overhead had not a speck of dust. Even the windowsills were spotless. We ordered fried mushrooms as an appetizer and were delighted with the platter of perfectly fried, tasty mushrooms. We ordered Country Fried Steak with mashed potatoes and zucchini marinara and the Monte Cristo Sandwich with fries. We were offered a complimentary cup of beef barley soup, which was delicious, as were our meals. Our server was friendly and helpful. As we finished, someone behind the counter noticed we needed a box and got one for us and our bill was brought to us promptly. I love when I don't have to wait for the bill! And it was a very reasonable bill as well! This is a great place to eat any time of the day. Well done!

“Just great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

You cannot miss with this restaurant. The wait staff is wonderful, very helpful to my mother and other elderly customers. It is packed on the weekends for a reason. The food--it is always fresh and homemade soup every day can't be beat. We usually stick with breakfast or lunch items, and if I lived in Lake Wales, I'd probably eat here once a week, at least. The catfish is great, but if you want shrimp and other seafood, go to the seafood joint a little farther west on highway 60.

“Great local diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

This is the place to go locally for a great breakfast. Lunch specials that feature home cooking. Reasonable prices and you get scup of complimentary soup with a lunch order.
