Very good bean & ham soup. Loaded baked potato with cheese, broccoli, & ham. Home cooked meat loaf. Don't expect anything flashy and don't judge from outside appearance. Very good place to eat and reasonably priced. Excellent service from our waitress Kris.

We ate here while passing through, so this was a one-time visit. That being said, if Fanny Horners was near to us, we'd probably eat here as it seems to offer solid, standard American diner food. Prices are reasonable, and service is friendly and efficient. An average rating means this restaurant delivers good food with a good experience. It is... More

Great caramel rolls and hash browns. Simple good food. They have a few fun toys for kids to play with. I've only had breakfast here but always good.

Pancakes were good. Biscuits and gravy and coffee, not so good. Good service and hot food. We won't return, we would choose Perkins over this restaurant.

We visited Fanny Horners on a Sunday morning at about 7 am. Upon arriving, the waitress appeared to resent our presence there. We were seated , and she jabbed at the menu and said that the #4 was on special, then dropped the menus and left. When we ordered, we were unable to hear a question she asked, so we... More

It's a diner like place. They serve most breakfast items all day. The skillet omelette was outstanding. One kid had a burger and the other steak and eggs. Everyone enjoyed their food. The kids shared a cinnamon roll for dessert. It was huge, warm and fresh and they devoured it!

Ate supper here based on the description in the Mitchell tourist guide which particularly mentioned their home-made bean soup. This was indeed the high point of the meal. I had the broasted chicken special which was very tasty. My friend had the breaded shrimp which was frozen and reheated as one would expect for the price. For under $20 for... More
