Wendsday special is Scalloped potatoes and ham. You have to get here early to eat it. It goes quick. Just like mom used to make. A must have!

Food is OK. Some days are better so not sure if there is a better cook than another? But the service is fabulous and they really do make you feel at home.

The staff was very friendly and attentive. The dining room was very warm and appealing---they seem to have a Community Table---which I love any restaurant that has one. My husband and I got burgers, fries, and onion rings. I loved the fries, liked the onion rings, as I did the hamburgers. The hamburgers were not seasoned, but they do seem... More

This place has the best chicken parm. in our area. The service is always really good and they have lots of daily specials to choose from including perch. Lots of soups and sandwiches like hot turkey with gravy.

My husband had lunch at Lanny's Restaurant today. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and my husband ordered the steak sandwich. When we received our sandwiches there was not even a pickle on the plate. You would think that they could throw a handful of chips on the plate or even a pickle. The steak? was nasty, they used the... More

This local restaurant has a great basic menu but also has daily specials. The prices are reasonable and the service is great. The only draw back is they are closed on Sunday's

Don't let the outside fool you-the interior is quite spacious and clean. The majority of the items on the menu are hand cooked and really delicious. I've tried the cod basket and found it to be fluffy and yummy. I was also pleasantly surprised by the burgers and breakfast. I have yet to order anything here that I didn't like.

Stopped here for lunch on our way back from Midland. First thing I noticed was the roomy, clean restrooms inside the front door. Found a seat near the back and was waited on right away. Ordered our food and within 10 minutes it was delivered to our table. The food was great, the burger was made from scratch not frozen.... More

My husband and I tried Lanny's for the first time today. We each had the Lanny burger, a cup of homemade chicken noodle soup and shared an order of fries. Everything was wonderful. The wait staff was excellent (Thank you Ryan) and the locals were friendly. We will definitely be back to try some of the homemade specials.
