Have had several meals there. Food is delish and nice size portions.They add new items frequently. The wait staff on the weekends is better than during the week for some reason. The bathrooms need an update but they are clean. I would recommend this restaurant

This place is a little off the beaten path but well worth the visit. Good service and plenty of seating. The food is so good and feels like your eating at Grandmas Sunday dinner.

This is where the locals eat! The service was good and the "Express" breakfast was delicious and quite filling. This meal was like home-cooked.

Really good food, friendly service and just right. Ordered small steak and meatloaf. Both excellent. Mashed potatoes and gravy were spectacular! We will definitely go back!

Brimfield Family Restaurant is a down home local place. They have their speciality dishes. Do not expect to eat that healthy here, as most of the food is fried. The sandwiches are very good, as is the chicken dinner. Great for breakfast and staff very...More
