Service was friendly. Our meal was buffet style home cooking. We were looking for something a bit more refreshing / healthy.

I love Ben and Joys....it takes me back in time to good home cooked meals. The chicken and mashed potatoes are awesome. Their breakfast is really good too. The servers are extremely friendly as well. An all around good place to eat!!

Great home cooked meal. Placeneeds some attention but that is part of the small town charm. I had a very generous portion of liver and onions. My wife had the ham. Both were very tasty. Next trip to Deer Creek we will try their breakfast.

Stopped on the way home from a weekend away; sorely disappointed. We picked the buffet and the chicken was dry; perhaps it's world famous for being bland and lacking in salt. Potatoes were from a box and the food overall was pretty bad, sub-cafeteria food....More
