Along with friends, we ordered our food over the phone and did a pickup at the drive thru. We took our food home and enjoyed our ‘comfort food’! The pricing seemed a little high, until we saw the portion sizes! Considering the size of the...portions, the pricing was not out of line! We were able to split each persons order and make two meals out of this one pickup order! Food was hot and very tasty! I would specifically recommend the sour dough bread, whether separate or on a sandwich order! Excellent when ordered as a replacement on the Reuben sandwich!!More

Thanks to recommendations here, our family of 6 enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Sara’s. They seated us quickly, had very friendly staff, and served more food than we could fit on our table! Ha! Though the menu was extensive, they served us efficiently! Great job,...staff! We will definitely be back next time we are in Fort Wayne!More

Great place if you like large portions it’s worth it. The menu has a lot of options to choose from. Staff was very attentive and even the owner came out and personally greeted us and asked how our service was. Best food in Fort Wayne!!!

What a great restaurant! I stopped in for a late breakfast during the late morning of August 3 and had a wonderful Western omelet with good hash browns, great coffee and pancakes that were perfectly done. It was very busy at the time but the...service was outstanding and very attentive. Even the water (I think it’s filtered?) was good!…Before leaving, I used the restroom and it was immaculate…I have been a customer of this excellent dining establishment in the past and in my opinion, based on what I’ve experienced and for what it specializes in, it is one of Fort Wayne’s best restaurants.More

The food was good, but it took 20min to get a server. The ppl behind us got seated and ordered before we got service. I would expect better from Sara's family restaurant.

I had the orange chicken with noodles. The chicken was chicken breast and was very tender not a frozen mix like most restaurants. I requested no peppers and even though they had a mix they were able to remove the peppers. Our main entrees arrived...before we finished our salad. My husband had the mac & cheese which was homemade. We will definitely be back when we visit family in the area.More

We planned a lunch at Outback Steakhouse only to find it doesn’t open til 4pm. Sara’s Family Restaurant was close by so we decided to try it. SO glad we did. Very clean. Large selection. Breakfast still available so assuming all day. Good prices and...Large Portions! Hubby had breakfast haystack of hash browns biscuits and gravy and topped with 2 eggs. He said better than Bob Evans! He was full but couldn’t stop eating! I got the chicken stir fry and it was amazing. Came with a salad for $9.99. Enuf for 2meals. Very good raspberry which was a bonus! We will definitely go back when we are in Ft Wayne again!More

Nothing bad to say, only helpful thoughts. This is truly a "Family Restuarant"!! I found it disturbing that a reviewer gave this place a 1-star rating and labeled the intro "To Political". What an idiot!! This is more historical and fun and doesn't lean either...way politically. Let's talk about what brought us....... Food & Service. The service is and was awesome. The young man that served our table was very knowledgeable and helpful. The quality and preparing of the food are very good, but it really depends on individual taste as to whether it's any better or worse than average. We were there for dinner, so I can't comment to the breakfast, but they serve it all day and we observed some others being served breakfast and it looked very good. The menu is huge, and I would go as far as to say TO HUGE! So many things to choose from, that it makes me wonder what they may be best at. Speaking of HUGE! It would be nice to be warned by the server as to how large the portions are on some of these items. I am not exaggerating when I say that three of the five menu meals that we chose could have each been enough for two plus people to eat. All in all, you definitely get your money's worth plus some in regard to quantity. Leftovers are a given. If you have a family that doesn't mind splitting a meal, I suggest doing so and saving some money and still having plenty of good food to go around.More

Amid an array of "fooderies", tucked quietly in between just off the Lutheran Hospital interchange on the NW side, is Sara's. A not fancy, just really FINE FAMILY FOOD, that's definitely not a stamp it out franchise (which I like sometimes), this friendly cafe with...a 15 page menu with a presidential theme offers big servings, and at my servers suggestion (thanks Angela), let me enjoy the food and good sized coffee cup filled; and was all just nice at my booth (or at tables), respectfully, pleasantly done and clean; even the men's restroom! 4.5 of 5 forksMore

We stopped in Ft Wayne overnight on our way to Michigan for vacation. We actually ate her for both dinner and breakfast the next morning. They have a HUGE menu. Dinner was good. I got a chicken Parmesan sandwich and my husband got fish and...chips. The servings are large. Breakfast looked so good that we came back the next morning. We were not disappointed. Service was a little slow for breakfast but they had just opened and they were busy. I would definitely go here again.More

So glad we trusted the reviews. Good dinner with amazing, efficient, friendly service. We needed to grab dinner before driving home to Kokomo and like to eat at local restaurants. My husband ordered the jalapeno orange pancakes. They are so good. The orange sauce was...perfect and the pepper flavor blended well. Kind of like the way a jalapeno spices up craft cocktails - subtle yet recognizable. I had chicken fried steak. It was good but nothing special. The mashed potatoes were rustic and very good. Fried okra was also fresh and crispy. We will definitely go back next time we are in Ft Wayne.More
