A lot of options, super clean and good service. The honey mustard grilled chicken was really good, well done!

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

The food was very good. Most people take food boxes home, because the servicing are very large. The pie is great also.

Pro: We really enjoyed the size of this menu. There is something for everyone. They have some normal breakfast items as well as some unique ones which makes it enjoyable to try different menu items. Why lost 1 Star: we couldn’t give this restaurant 5...stars because we didn’t think any one menu item we got was amazing and something we would want to get again if we went there instead of trying something new. We thought the hash browns needed more seasoning. We enjoyed everything we had but nothing stood out as spectacular. Still a nice local restaurant I would recommend going to!More

Found Sara's a homey, welcoming place with delicious food! We had lunch here and then came back 2 days later for breakfast! Excellent and cheerful waitstaff, generous portions and large variety pleased everyone in the family. We also enjoyed the Americana themed decor and the...clever menu names based on famous Americans. If you look up the word "Diner", there should be a picture of Sara's! We will be back!!More

Highly overated. Paletable at best. Mediocre food, although really cool creative patriotic theme, big portions, and friendly staff. Tried 3 items recommended as some of their specialties; all very bland. Basically a more thematic , but lower quality Spyros. I expected more from the #6...out of 500+ resteraunts in Fort Wayne. I hate to bash on a local place, but with 16 pages on their menu and taking less than 10 minutes to have our food, I was concerned about the quality. Eggs Florentine was watery and the hollandaise was dreadful--tasted like plain egg whites (supposed to have a nice bite to it); Southwest Omlet was tasteless. Pancakes on par with McDonald's pancakes--just okay. I suspect that much of the food was microwaved to order. 2.4/5 stars.More

I've been missing out on this place for a long time. I wish I would have eaten there sooner. Everything we ordered was delicious and the portions were huge. Nobody finished their entire meal. If you're looking for a place to take the family, Sara's...is the place to go. The menu is large and there should be something for everyone. Salads, pasta, burgers, skillets, fish, wraps and other sandwiches. There is so much to choose from. I had the Greek pasta with chicken and look forward to going back soon to try something different.More

We enjoyed eating at this restaurant, pleasant servers, very good food, and close to our hotel! My husband and I ate here before leaving for our vacation and upon our return, went here for breakfast also! We would go back again!
