I have relatives from Chicago who must visit every time they're in the area! It's great. The employees definitely make you feel welcome. I would suggest reservations for dinner because they are ALWAYS packed. It's a very popular place in the Effingham area. The salad bar is great, especially if you don't have a big appetite. It has many choices, not just salad!

If this place ever offered an IPO stock offering, I would buy the entire offering. It seems to be constantly and completely filled whenever we go there. We go to Effingham once a year for the Volkswagen Fun Fest the first weekend in June. We used to eat at Rexroat's downtown, but it closed and for the past few years we've eaten at Niemerg's. OK, the food is not Big City. Don't drive from Chicago or St. Louis to eat here. But if you are in Effingham for an evening, it's pretty good...and most reasonably priced. Six of us ate dinner here--six nice entrees, two glasses of wine, two desserts for $74 w/o tip. Great value and good, but certainly not amazing food.

We were just passing through and decided to stop. We were a little confused at the entry. There are two places to eat with different menus. We chose the one with the salad bar. The soup & salad bar was delicious! Hubby had some kind of beef and cheese and I had grilled chicken. We spent less than we would have at a fast food place and had GREAT service, food and a really pleasant experience. I will be back!!!!

Mom and I have ate at this restaurant for years. We have always had great food, nice atmosphere and service. We went to Niemergs on mothers day and it was busy, but only had a 5 minute wait which was nice. Mom had a Ribeye and I had the Prime Rib along with their salad bar. The Salad bar was excellent and a lot of great choices for toppings for your salad. Mom loved her Ribeye and my Prime Rib was excellent and cooked just right. The only thing we did not like about it is that the Ribeye and Prime Rib was cut a little to thin, like about 1/2 inch maybe a little more. Other than that everything was great and the server was very good.

Niemerg's Steak House in Effingham is a very busy place and worth the wait. There are actually three different places to be seated with essentially the same menu in each place. However it is a bit confusing on your first visit as you are greeted by somebody taking your name for the waiting list. Not knowing there were options, we put our name in and were told twenty minutes on a Sat. evening about 5:30. Here's the scoop. There are three separate eating areas. There is the main dining room which has a salad bar that is included in the daily specials and the wait is usually very long. If you prefer to get seated quickly you sit at the bar or Brass Rail or the coffee shop. The two places don't have the full menu and you can't get the salad bar. The trade off is you don't have to wait very long to get seated. We sat at the bar for 30 minutes before I asked how much longer and then were told that it would be another 20 minutes for the dining room but if we wanted to eat in either of the other two areas we could get right in. We were disappointed but in a bit of a hurry so we sat in the coffee shop and had a very good chicken dinner. Great service and great prices just a bit confusing for us first timers!!
