We stopped there and all 4 of has had different things to eat and we all had a great meal. I had the breakfast wrap, another one had a reuben, another one had the flank steak special and the last one had a BLT. And the service was quite friendly.

This wasn't our first trip to this restaurant and, as usual, the ladies (servers) are always helpful and friendly. The portions are huge & service is prompt. Meals are not expensive. They serve breakfast all day & a standard minimal / medium sized menu for lunch / dinner.

We stopped here for dinner. My husband had breakfast (which is served all day). I had a Rueben with onion rings...The food was delicious and plenty of it, in fact my plate was so full of onion rings that I could hardly find my sandwich......I couldn't finish them all....The onion rings tasted homemade and were not like most which are...

The Cordial Restaurant in Clinton is a small main-street restaurant, more like a cafe, that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The largest part of the menu is breakfast and it is served all day. The food is basic, mostly burgers and sandwiches, and the prices are reasonable. Service at about 6pm was not very good despite the fact that there... More

The Cordial Restaurant is nothing fancy but, the food is good. Walking distance to our motel, we ate amongst the locals. It has a relaxed atmosphere; there was no rush but, no wait either. Friendly and comfortable place to sit and enjoy a meal. We visited for breakfast and both orders were really good. One so big it couldn't be... More

Stopped here for lunch. The place looks a bit run down. Old tables and chairs and doesn't look promising. Because of the total lack of dining options in Clinton, I decided to give the place a try, against my better judgement. I ordered my go to safe dish, the beef dip (I order the beef dip in places that look... More

Bit of a dump but great breakfasts. Typical tiny town diner clinging to life on highway traffic and a few locals drinking coffee. Support these places, The locals need it.

This is the first review I've ever felt motivated to write about anything. The title says most of it. I waited for 50 minutes, only to receive my order with toppings missing. I will say the wait staff was great while I was there, she even gave me a discount to make up for the wait caused by the terrible... More

Try the 1/2 pancake you won't go away hungry. And I also enjoy the potato/hash browns. It's a local hangout you can catch up on the goings on about town.

This place has the possibility of being a "find". Not on the day we visited though. The "eggs with potato patties and toast" was fine but a bit over-priced. The endless supply of coffee was a Greek gift - quite tasteless - perhaps even being the 3rd or 4th pass through the grounds.
