Jim Dandy is a part of a local chain that opens at seven in the morning and closes at nine. You will find groups of people sitting together, drinking coffee, eating, and enjoying the home style restaurant. .There is always a buffet, breakfast lunch, or dinner. The specialty is "broasted" chicken. It is good chicken. They have freshly baked pies.... More

First time visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed! Our server Deborah was so friendly & nice, a great server. Breakfast was delicious. Can't wait to go back & try their lunch buffet, broasted chicken on buffet as well as other meats. Highly recommend!

When we are near Greenfield at mealtime we leave I70 and drive past one mile of chain restaurants to. get to Jim Dandy. Really it's for the love of a great genuine hamburge. We never try anything but the burger because we are fanatics for a classic burger, and a burger this good is so hard to pass up, though... More

I saw this place and thought it would be similar to a Big Boy restaurant. The place has a similar menu and interior decoration but the food, sadly, was worse. I ordered a couple of items form the menu. I ordered the "famous" tenderloin (mini) and a Jim Dandy Junior burger. Both were just average... nothing special. The kicker was... More

Unless they have changed cooks, this restaurant need a lot of help. Buffet would be ok but food dried out and salads set too long. I may return just to see if there is any improvement.

I lived in Greenfield for about 18 months and this was one of my favorites. The broasted chicken is one of the best chicken dishes I ever had and I still get cravings. The sugar cream pie is simply delicious. The buffet offers a real bargain and was a favorite with me and several of my coworkers. Much better than... More

Traditional small town sit down restaurant. Good salad bar, the usual American food menu, I like the breaded tenderloin platter. Clean, nothing fancy, friendly waitress.

Average fair. Wouldn't go out of my way to stop in to eat, but wouldn't avoid either. Only writing more due to required 100 characters by trip advisor. Let's see if this let's me submit the review.

Thank Hiram T
