If you are wanting fancy food you are in the wrong place. Fanny Horners is a neighborhood establishment where you expect to hear everyone called by name when they walk in the door, and frequently are. The food is served hot and quickly and is always tasty.

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

Asked for recommendation of good breakfast while visiting Corn Palace. Decorated with souvenir plates from all over. Friend had pancakes - large and good. I had a breakfast skillet - ham, onion, green pepper omelet on top of hashbrowns, smothered in cheese gravy. Just might be one of the best breakfasts I have ever had!

Tried the lunch Fish Special for $6.99. Was expecting 2-3 pieces 9f fish, but only got 1 small battered fish stick. Was tasty, but cone on one small piece! Also I had an order of mozzarella sticks -- got six with NO marinara sauce or anything and for the outrageous price of $6.99! Observed most of the people eating there... More

If you are looking for good, home-style country cooking, you will be sorely disappointed..especially if you are from the south and like any flavor in your food. I am fairly certain everything on my plate came from a frozen bag or a can. I got the fish fry "special" and sure enough, it was a rectangle fish. Ever heard of... More

They sent us this direction at the corn palace when we wanted something other than fast food. I had the roast beef. My husband had the country fried steak. Kids all had breakfast. Everyone was satisfied. Waitress was sweet and talked with us for a while which adds to our road trip and the home town atmosphere.

Service is great, portions are just right, and the food is delicious! Very reasonably priced as well! We stopped for lunch because there were lots of cars in the parking lot. We certainly weren't disappointed! Get the sour cream and raisin pie!!!!

This restaurant is on the North part of town, near a mall. I only saw one waitress, and she indeed was SuperWaitress. She could definitely multi-task, and did it well, with a smile. There were onion rings on my chopped steak, and they could not have been any better.....delicious. We ended our meal with lemon meringue pie, and it too... More
