“Fine Meal For The Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

In the world of steaks, there were several choices, along with choices of potatoes. My New York Strip was cooked as ordered and the twice-baked potato and sauteed mushrooms were fine. The soup and salad bar (included with entrees) was fresh and very acceptable. Service was friendly and efficient. This was Effingham, Illinois--not New York, New York--and the restaurant should be judged accordingly. When in Effingham, you should have Niemerg's Steak House on your dining list.

Walked across parking lot from our stay at Comfort Suites. Neat place. Basic American Food, but very good and reasonable.

“Really good food. Great pies. Great prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Two of us had a full dinner with desert for under $20. I really liked the fried chicken and wife had the grilled chicken breasts. The vegetable beef soup was great. The rolls were fresh and warm. The chocolate cream pie was excellent. It is a busy place but we only had to wait five minutes on a Saturday evening. Will definitely come here again.

“Food is, well, not very good.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The food is fair. The chicken is fried to death and sometimes almost seems burnt. The noodles have been compared to paste. The salad bar has not changed at all in probably 15 years or more. The pies are okay. The best time to go if you want to eat here is breakfast. I try to avoid it, but if a friend wants to go there I try to get them to go at breakfast. The service is usually good and they have put a good amount into remodeling over the past few years.

“Good food for the price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great place to eat. Served warm bread with Thierry speciality cinnamon butter. Large salad bar with many choices. Great for a date or a quick lunch. Chicken to go is always good! Highly recommend!
