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.

We stopped here on our way home, Chattanooga, Tn, from Indianapolis, IN. I had the salad bar and the vegetable soup. The soup was home made and very good...I had two bowls of it. There were lots of topping for the salad. Our service was also very good.

Jim Dandy is a local gem. They are known for their burgers but we love it when it is chicken salad time! They have a large salad bar and also a breakfast bar on Saturday and Sunday. They also have terrific pies!!

This place has an impressive salad bar and excellent servers. The floor was extremely sticky as if they had washed it with a bucket of sweet tea instead of soapy water (even in the restroom!) It felt like a long wait to get our food. Additionally, both my entree and my husbands were overcooked. My chicken breast was tough and... More
