“Horrible service, less than great food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

My husband and I had breakfast here on our honeymoon....who could resist a place called Grandma's, right? Wrong. We ordered our breakfast at 11:25am, and it was 12:02pm when we got out food. Another couple came in and ordered lunch at 11:45am and had their before us! Come on, how long does it take to make an omelet and warm up some gravy and a biscuit? 10-15 minutes at most. The omelet was wrong to boot. I enjoyed amish country, but will definitely not be returning there for a meal - too many other great restaurants in the area if you want home cooking.

“Great local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Stopped here on our way around Amish Country. Would absolutely go back. Recommend the prime rib sandwich, outstanding. The peanut butter pie is great too. Beware if you order fries they are salted to death. Make sure to tell them no salt.

“Always love to go to Grandma's Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We try to get to Charm and surrounding areas two or three times a year. We are from the Niagara Falls area in Ontario so it is a 5 hour drive for us and we make a weekend and stay in surrounding areas. This time we stayed at the little cottage across the street from the restaurant. Have always wanted to stay there so thought we would give it a try, not sure I would do it again. However the restaurant is one of those places on our list that is a must. The girls are always friendly and since we have been there so often we now have a couple of girls that we ask for each time and we are never disappointed on the hospitality and service. As far as not being amish and not getting prompt service, that is bull. We have been there several times, booths full of amish families or senior gentlemen stopping in for their morning coffee. They as well as everyone are very friendly. The food I agree is simple, so are they, isnt that what you go for the country life laid back with good wholesome food. You want something fancy stick to the busy cities, you can have that, I'll take the amish communities anyday. It is a lifestyle that should be practiced more often.

“Quaint, decent Amish food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

I liked the option to get an ice cream sundae instead of fries. Yumm.

“Good luck getting service if you aren't Amish!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

We went there for the first time back in November and the food was decent. Nothing fancy on the menu, but it tasted pretty good. However, we tried to go back the other day and ended up walking out. There were at least three people working in this little restaurant at the time and only one booth was occupied by Amish customer so they weren't busy by any means. The employees mostly just talked amongst themselves. We waited for almost 20 minutes at the front with the employees constantly walking by and not so much as a hi or we'll be with you shortly. We were completely ignored! As we were leaving an Amish family walked in. They were immediately helped and seated. We will not be going back to this place if this is how they treat their customers! If you want good food and good service, go to Chalet In The Valley instead.
