Occasionally go with my family for dinner. Always have had good service and great food. The chicken souvlaki is excellent. They always have great desserts as well.

Even thou it appeared to be full when we arrived, we were still able to find a good parking spot and only waited 5 min to be seated. Very big, clean, spacious and service was quick. Ate 6 for $73 plus ordered a meal to go - before 11am they offer breakfast specials. My family (ages 11 to 68) ordered... More

The Bennett High School Class of 1964 has adopted the Family Tree Restaurant on N. Bailey near Eggert in Amherst as our monthly meeting spot. The wonderful, amazing, efficient staff has gotten to know this group of more than 15 or so of old high school classmates over the passed few months. Our meetings are about 2 hours long when...

We have been here numerous times. At times the food is excellent and hot, at others it is mediocre to poor and cold. The past 3 times we were so disappointed we said that we would not return there any more. Then earlier this week we went to another restaurant but was closed unexpectedly for the night so we returned... More

After several repeat visits, the last being in May 2016, the wait staff on the most part very friendly. Very good variety of food on the menu. Food is very good.

We have been coming here for years for their breakfasts and still amazed at the quantity and quality of food for under $6. Always friendly and accommodating, a real delight. Likely the reason it is mostly always busy. Keep it up!!

This is a large family restaurant that specializes in Greek and American food. They are consistently good and have quick service. They have wonderful desserts as well. My favorite dish here is Pastitsio. That is followed by a close second of chicken souvlaki. My family and I love to go here for Sunday breakfast. But, on this last occasion I... More

On the last day of our trip west to visit our college-student daughter, we took her and her boyfriend and two housemates to The Family Tree. The breakfast and lunch menus offered everything we wanted. Eggs, oatmeal, waffles, omelets, chicken souvlaki and all the accompanying bits and piecesi: the food was superlative. All we needed was better coffee service. Six... More

Lunch with a friend on an early afternoon @ Family Tree Restaurant was a good choice as we both agreed that this was our first choice when selecting a venue for lunch on this snowy day. Service at the Family Tree Restaurant is always quick and efficient, but there is never a rushed feeling to your dining experience. As soon... More

The staff was friendly and professional. Early on a Friday morning, the place was not busy and we had our choice of seating. The place is clean and well decorated. The breakfast was your typical average breakfast. I had my standard corn beef hash and eggs breakfast Unfortunately, the corn beef tasted as if they had just taken in out... More
